Waller galloper primed to win second-up
SO YOU WIN has been given every chance by Chris Waller to recover from his good first-up run when fourth Turnberry at Rosehill on November 10
beaten a length and a quarter.
The So You Think fouryear-old goes around tomorrow on his home track at Rosehill Gardens in the ATC Christmas At The Gardens Handicap (1500m) and will prove very hard to beat, not least given that he is unbeaten in two secondup starts.
I have always had a good opinion of So You Win and he worked over 1000m in 1.11.70 on the inside grass last Saturday with stablemate COLDITZ, coming home their last 400m in 24.70 and this will help his fitness for the weekend.
ABDON MEROVEE are stablemates trained by Chris Waller who has two other runners in the 2000m ATC Summer Racing Handicap (2000m) at Rosehill.
Abdon has been knocking on the door for a win.
His short head second to Our Century was good effort as he kept making ground to the line.
He goes up in weight and drops in grade tomorrow.
Abdon worked on the inside grass over 1000m in 1.09.30 with a final 400m 24.20. It was good work from the very fit import.
Merovee keeps getting me in on his trackwork alone.
His work with stablemate BEIDI over 1000m on the inside grass on Tuesday was a best of the morning gallop running 1.08.50 for the trip and final 400m in 23.80 was very good from pair.
It is now or never for Merovee who goes around with a very lightweight in 52.5kg.
ALBUMIN and TANGO RAIN are both trained by Gerald Ryan look well placed in the ATC Merry Christmas Members Sprint (1100m) at Rosehill.
Albumin barrier trialled very well Rosehill when fourth to Samadoubt in a fitness only trial on November 19.
He worked Tuesday morning on the inside grass with stablemate PROBLEM SOLVER with pair running a best of the morning gallop over 600m in 36.46, with their last 400m in 23.39 and final 200m in 12.18.
He is the more genuine of the pair.
Tango Rain went down a length to Isuarian at Rosehill on November 17 his third run back, he is probably the fitter of the pair and always works well when required.
Another of the Ryan string, ARANCINI, ran well when first-up when third to Blue Tycoon at the night meeting at Canterbury on November 16 beaten a length.
The Shinzig six-year-old gets his chance to return to the winner’s list in tomorrow’s ATC Australian Turf Club Handicap (1300m).
Take note that James McDonald sticks with Arancini from his last run which is a good booking.
