Paret To Play The Spring Part

By Brad Gray

Paret made a huge impression winning on debut at Canterbury prompting Chris Waller to consider some lofty spring targets for the untapped three-year-old.

When Waller, who is notoriously very patient with his young horses, starts skipping grades you get a pretty clear indication that he thinks very highly of them.

Paret was soft on the line

“I don’t normally like to race a maiden winner 10 days later but it’s that time of the year. There is still a 20 percent chance of getting to a Caulfield Guineas or a Coolmore up the straight so we’ll see how he goes on Saturday. He’d have to win well,” Waller said.

“He might be going to the paddock after Saturday, so who knows, but he is a really good horse.”

The Harbour Watch colt has always been pegged by the stable as a smart horse so it was little surprise to Waller to see him win at his first outing.

“He started out down in the Melbourne stable and we were always getting phone calls from jockeys down there. Craig Newitt and Ben Melham both put big raps on him,” said Waller.

“He is one of a few of our three-year-olds that are really exciting us. We’ve got a lovely group that we’ve looked after and we're looking forward to being rewarded for that patience soon.”

Meanwhile, Waller confirmed that Foxplay, who has run placings behind Winx in the Warwick Stakes and then the George Main Stakes this spring, will take her place in the Epsom Handicap after being allotted 54kg.

“She knew she had a run again but she’ll be fine and will be third up into the Epsom. I’m happy with the weight considering what she has done,” Waller said.
