Melbourne Debut for Beaten Up in CF Orr Stakes 2015

Sydney’s top trainer Chris Waller finally gets to show the Melbourne racing fans his European import Beaten Up who makes his Victorian debut in the 2015 CF Orr Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse on the weekend.

Waller launches a dual-pronged attack on the $400,000 Group 1 C.F. Orr Stakes (1400m) field on Saturday, the weight-for-age feature kicking off elite level racing this Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

Waller’s hopes lie in Bagman and Beaten Up, the stablemates drawn at opposite ends of the 15-starter field in barriers two and 15 respectively.

Both are second-up for year with eight-year-old Bagman beating home Beaten Up by one when they finished seventh and eighth behind another Waller-trained import Weary in the Group 2 Expressway Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on January 31.

Former William Haggas-trained Beat Hollow gelding Beaten Up debuted for Waller down under in March of 2013 with two unplaced runs before a narrow second to Mouro in the Listed Rowley Mile (1600m) at Hawkesbury that May.

He then travelled to Brisbane for the winter and despite being blocked for a run near the turn, beat a crack field including Foreteller (2nd) and Secret Admirer (3rd) in the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m).

His early spring campaign that year was good but came to an end after he pulled up lame following a second to Waller’s former Queensland Derby winner Hawkspur in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) with lacerations on his nearside stifle.

Beaten Up spent over a year on the sidelines recovering from the injury before returning to the track in last month’s Expressway Stakes.

In that resuming run he worked home nicely, without really challenging, making up ground over the final 400m to finish three lengths off Weary who takes on a crack field in the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) at Randwick this weekend.

Waller opted for Beaten Up not to join his six Apollo Stakes runners and instead has him shooting for a second Group 1 victory in the CF Orr before a possible shot at the $1 million Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington on March 14.

Melbourne Cup winning German stayer Protectionist leads the futures Australian Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $5 while Beaten Up can be found further down the markets at $26.

In the early CF Orr Stakes betting markets for this weekend, Beaten Up pays $19 to score an upset.

The Peter Moody-trained Dissident is the clear $3.80 favourite after the Sebring entire ran third to Mourinho first-up in the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on January 24.

The other top fancies for the first Group 1 win of the season include Sandown Guineas winning colt Petrology ($6), Entirely Platinum ($7.50) and the flying Manfred Stakes winner Java ($8) shooting for his fifth win on the trot.
