Stanley one out against Waller
Andrew Eddy@fastisheddy

Hawkesbury trainer Jamie Thomsen thought better of it, but not only has Brent Stanley accepted the challenge of facing 11 Chris Waller-trained horses at Randwick on Saturday, he believes he is doing the record-breaking trainer a great favour.

Thomsen decided against running his mare Praise Songs against the exclusively-Waller line-up in the Benchmark 88 handicap over 2400 metres but Stanley paid-up for Red Alto as a late entry partly, he says, to take some of the pressure off Waller with his owners.

"Hopefully my horse wins the race and none of his (Waller) other owners have to worry about one of his other horses beating him," Stanley said.

"But seriously, he's in his right race. It's his right rating. It's his right distance. His form is good. He just needs a little bit of luck in running."

"He's run fourth in a (Victoria) Derby and he's won several Saturday metropolitan open company races. He's just is one of those horses that needs everything to go right and he took forever to come right this preparation - to get ready.

"But he's a fit and happy horse at the moment and he's been around that way (clockwise) several times."

Stanley explained that he was fortunate that nominations were extended for the race until Tuesday.
"It was a bit of a mistake actually," he said. "We missed it (nominations deadline), we were meant to be there but we were out and had a hiccup with no service at the time so we were glad they extended them."

As for taking on 11 Waller horses on Saturday, Stanley was matter of fact.

"Only one of his can win and only one of mine can win," he said.

All eyes on Waller's runners Saturday be risky having a bet IMO.

Giddy Up :beer:
