Pandemonium Soars Ahead Of Group One Target

By Brad Gray

Pandemonium proved a dominant winner at Warwick Farm on Wednesday in the TAB Handicap (1400m) which saw training duo Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott firm up plans to set the filly for the $500,000 Group One Flight Stakes (1600m) over the spring.

“I think we’ll drop back to fillies grade now and go through the Tea Rose into the Flight Stakes,” said Bott.

“It was great to see her step up another notch again and beat the boys. There’s nice improvement in her going forward too. I mentioned a couple of nice targets for her and I think we can work towards those now.”

Pandemonium controlled the race from the outset

The daughter of Sebring, who jumped $1.90 with TAB Fixed Odds on the back of a dominant provincial win, began quickly from the inside draw to lead comfortably and after breaking clear at the top of the straight, was always holding a margin to the closing Augustus.

“I think the win last start really switched her on. She was very relaxed at Kembla Grange,” Bott said.

“There may have been times when she overdid it a touch today but she saw it out strongly and it was good to see her win like that.

“She has filled out, matured and strengthened. Now she’s up to her ideal trip at the mile we’ll see better things to come from her.”

Rachel King, who has developed a knack of perfectly rating Waterhouse and Bott’s front-running gallopers, has worked with the filly since she first wandered through the Tulloch Lodge gates.

“We’ve always liked her a lot and she keeps improving with every start and she was better again today,” King said.

“She rolled along nicely in front. There was a little bit of pressure early but she was able to settle, get into her rhythm and finish it off really strongly.

“I’ve had a lot to do with her since she was a yearling so it makes it even nicer when you can get a couple of wins on the board.”
