Waller’s Se­ri­ous Angst con­tender

The Sportsman Weekend - - The Trackwork Winners - JOHN MOC

I AM SE­RI­OUS has found the right race to­mor­row at Royal Rand­wick to win the Group 3 ATC Angst Stakes (1600m) for the mares.

Her last start third to Avil­ius on Septem­ber 15 beaten a length in the Kingston Town was a very good ef­fort.

Take note that Patrick Erin fin­ished fourth in the same race and he sub­se­quently won last Sat­ur­day’s Group 1 Met­ro­pol­i­tan at Rand­wick.

This Choisir mare is in ca­reer best form for Chris Waller and he has booked James McDon­ald to make a good thing of I Am Se­ri­ous.

Her gal­lop on last Sat­ur­day was very strong when work­ing the in­side grass, 10m out, over 1200m in 1:24.30 and her last 400m 24.40 was a win­ning gal­lop.

RAQEEQ can re­turn to win­ning form in the ATC Sch­weppes Hand­i­cap at Head­quar­ters over 2000m to­mor­row.

The im­port ran a very good fourth last start at Rose­hill on Septem­ber 22 to stable­mate The Lord Mayor beaten 0.9-len com­ing from eighth at the 400m.

Raqeeq car­ries James McDon­ald to­mor­row.

On Tues­day morn­ing he worked on the Course Proper with stable­mate Merovee 15m out and pair recorded a best of the morn­ing gal­lop over 1000m in 1:9.10 with their fi­nal 400m 24.20, it was good stay­ing work from the pair.

TOUGH LARRY was scratched from War­wick Farm on Wed­nes­day to run in the ATC Young Mem­bers Hand­i­cap (1400m) at Rand­wick to­mor­row where he will be hard to beat.

James McDon­ald part­nered the Fast ‘N’ Fa­mous three-year-old on de­but on the Kens­ing­ton track Septem­ber 5 and sticks with him.

The geld­ing has been given plenty of time to re­cover from a tough win.

DEAL­MAKER ran on very well from last at the 400m to be beaten a short half head by Tarka in Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes on a Heavy 8 track at Rose­hill on Septem­ber 8.

Third in the race was The Au­tumn Sun and how im­pres­sive was he win­ning the Group 1 Golden Rose at Rose­hill on Septem­ber 22 at his next start.

Trainer Chris Waller has the Dun­deel colt in the Spring Cham­pion Stakes to­mor­row at Rand­wick – a Group 1 race with Damien Oliver to ride and is sure to run well.

Deal­maker Girl Tues­day ran a best of the morn­ing work­out on course proper 15m out, over 1000m in 1:09.30, last 400m in 24.00 was very good from the pair.

PER­FORMER and CHARGE are both win­ning hopes for Chris Waller in to­mor­row’s Group 2 Ro­man Con­sul Stakes at set weights for the three-year-olds.

Per­former went aw­ful last start when beaten 5.4len in the Group 2 Run To The Rose at Rose­hill on Septem­ber 8 which won by stable­mate Lean Mean Ma­chine on that Heavy 8 track.

Trainer Chris Waller took him back to the tri­als at Rand­wick on Septem­ber 28 and was a great se­cond to Kaeper­nick in good open heat.

Per­former has stacks of abil­ity and won the Listed Breed­ers’ Plate at Rand­wick on de­but.

I have al­ways thought he would make top grade, the heavy 8 could of af­fected his chances last start.

CHARGE was a fair third last started be­hind Ragged Ras­cal, Meryl se­cond and she won the Group 3 MVRC Scar­bor­ough Stakes at Moonee Val­ley last Fri­day night when is a good form line.

Charge worked quite well on Tues­day morn­ing on the course proper, 15m out, over 1000m in 1:9.20, last 400m in 24.60 was pleas­ing work.

WINX will bring up 28 straight wins for Chris Waller in the Turn­bull Stakes at Flem­ing­ton to­mor­row.

INVINCIBELLA was a good thing beaten last start when fourth to Shu­mookh in the Group 2 Golden Pen­dant at Rose­hill on Septem­ber 22.

She lines up in the 1400m Group 2 Blazer Stakes in the last at Flem­ing­ton, an­other very good hope for Chris Waller.

Hugh Bow­man stays aboard and the sta­ble re­ports both horses went down to Waller’s Mel­bourne sta­ble and have set­tled in great.

I will be back­ing Invincibella and hope­fully she will fin­ish off a good day again for the Waller sta­ble in Syd­ney and Mel­bourne.

I Am Se­ri­ous.
