Nothing Ordinary About Randwick Return

By Brad Gray At Royal Randwick

To the victor goes the spoils, and that was certainly the case with Comin’ Through winning upon his return, but few missed the first up run of Life Less Ordinary.

“He excited me winning first up in Australia and they normally come back so much better in their second prep. He’ll be in some good races,” said Chris Waller of the six-year-old import.

“Either The Metrop or the Bart Cummings will be his first serious target.”

Comin' Through beating Life Less Ordinary

It was a welcome return to the winners’ stall for Comin’ Through, the half-brother to Criterion, with Waller now plotting a path to the $1,000,000 Epsom Handicap.

“It’s good to see him come back a bit stronger and the paddock watchers today would have seen a different horse altogether. Obviously leading was not ideal but it shows he is genuine.”

Michael Walker took up the running on the four-year-old and it proved a masterstroke as the quick Randwick conditions, which saw three track records fall on the day, assisted those on speed.

“We planned to be fourth or fifth but he has never jumped out of the gates in his life. I thought with 60.5kg on his back and there being no speed in the race I’d use my initiative and go forward,” Walker said.

“He was running in and running out. He had his ears pricked. When I take a sit on him he’ll be a different horse.”
