Ranvet mission for Shillelagh

Shillelagh may not be the headline act for leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller at Rosehill on Saturday, but the expat Kiwi is hoping the dual Group One winner can add another elite level victory to her tally when she lines-up in the Gr.1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m).

The daughter of Savabeel was an impressive runner-up last start in the Gr.1 Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington earlier this month, but Waller does hold some concerns with the wet track at Rosehill.

“She comes out of a very good run in the Australian Cup where she had no luck, being exposed throughout,” Waller said.

“Hopefully she can get a little more luck on Saturday, but my biggest concern with her would be the wet track. From gate five she should be afforded a more economical run.

“Safely through Saturday a decision will be made on whether she runs in the Doncaster or the Coolmore Legacy.”
