Queen’s Former Horse & Fit Rangirangdoo Boost Waller

Royal Randwick will live up to its name this weekend when a little piece of the monarchy has a crack at the Doncaster Mile Prelude.

My Kingdom Of Fife will represent Chris Waller after a former career racing for the Queen under Sir Michael Stoute in England.

Despite having runners in all three Group 1 races Waller will certainly be watching his latest European import very closely.

“He will need the run but we have to kick him off somewhere,” Waller said.

“He had good form in England so hopefully he can reproduce it here.”

It’s part of an established pattern by Waller to buy tried British horses and bring them to Australia to tackle the longer distances.

He’ll have a bit of a spring in his step as well with Rangirangdoo recovering better than expected after pulling up lame after his George Ryder Stakes triumph.

The dual Group 1 winner spent a year on the sidelines after he won his first Group 1 (Doncaster Mile) and for a while it looked like déjà vu.

“He was treated with anti-inflammatories on Saturday night and went for a walk on Sunday, a swim on Monday and was on the treadmill on Tuesday,” Waller said.

“The leg is being iced regularly and I think now there is a chance he could run in the All-Aged Stakes.”

The Group One All-Aged Stakes (1400m) is at Randwick on April 23
