Weir has selected the Group 1 $1m Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot in Perth on November 19 as Rageese’s next target and is confident that he will handle the step up to the 1600m.

“We have been heading towards this race all preparation and hopefully he would perform well today to book a berth across to Perth for the Railway to get his chance to run in a Group 1,” Weir said.

“So the way he went today, hopefully he pulls up well and has a good fortnight so he can head across there.”

“The way he ran through the line today you would think if it was a mile today it would not have been a problem.

“I think if he can switch off and the race is run truely, it won’t be a problem.”

Good early pace in the L’Oreal Paris Stakes allowed winning jockey Damian Lane to settle Rageese ($6) midfield before running home to score a length win over Arod ($15) with the unlucky Federal ($4.80) winding up in third sport.

Favourite Takedown ($4) raced on the pace for Blake Shinn and battled on fairly for fifth.

“They looked to run along really strongly and Pete (Ellis, form analyst) suggested that before the race,” Weir said.

“He said that it would be a truly run race so you are probably going to be midfield. I was hoping to be a bit closer but as usual he was right and they ran along very strong.”

“He (Damian Lane) got a nice cart into it and he let down great.”

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.
