Waller Trio Face Tough 2013 Ranvet Stakes Test

March 22nd, 2013

Trainer Chris Waller is wary of his competition as he lines up three of his stable starts for the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill Racecourse tomorrow March 23, 2013.

The Sydney trainer has three representatives in the 2013 Ranvet Stakes field, including Foreteller, Gatewood and Kelinni.

Waller feels that the biggest threat will come from Group 1 Australian Cup runner-up Fiveandahalfstar in tomorrow’s race.

The six-year-old Foreteller placed seventh behind winner Super Cool and Fiveandahalfstar in the Australian Cup.

“Fiveandahalfstar is the benchmark because he is coming out of a harder field in the Australian Cup,” Waller said.

“It was certainly a touch harder and he really toughed it out.”

Waller will use the 2013 Ranvet Stakes to test the waters ahead of the Group 1 The BMW, which will take place at Rosehill on April 6, 2013.

“They need to be showing something to suggest they are good chances, winning chances in the BMW,” he said.

While Foreteller placed seventh last start, he won his previous run in the Group 2 Peter Young Stakes at Caulfield in February.

Meanwhile Gatewood and Kelinni are coming in the 2013 Ranvet Stakes off the back of runs in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes.

Gatewood placed seventh in the Chipping Norton, while Kelinni finished two spots back in ninth position.

Based on their previous autumn performances, Waller is finding it hard to predict who will fare the best of the three in tomorrrow’s race.

“It’s hard to split them,” he said.

“Kelinni did a great job in the Melbourne Cup, Gatewood has a good turn of foot and he’s a Royal Ascot winner and Foreteller is a Group Two winner.”
