Sydney’s premier trainer Chris Waller can’t fault his three runners in the Group 1 $500,000 Colgate Optic White George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on Saturday.

Waller will saddle up the first and second favourites Kermadec ($2.90) and Royal Descent ($4.40) as well as the $81 outsider of the field Moriarty.

Kermadec will strip fitter at his third run back after finishing fifth as favourite first up to Royal Descent in the Group 2 $250,000 Pro-Ride Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on August 22.

The Doncaster Mile winner then ran an improved race and battled on well after being caught wide for second to Complacent in the Group 2 $250,000 Tattersalls Club Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on a fortnight ago.

“Kermadec, he went terrific (in the Chelmsford), he was caught three wide with no cover, and he has drawn well on Saturday, Glyn Schofield rides,” Waller said.

Glyn Schofield takes over from the suspended Glen Boss and should be able to give a Kermadec the perfect run from barrier five in the ten horse field.

Royal Descent scored a brilliant first up win in the Warwick Stakes and Waller is blaming the second up syndrome for her last start third in the Chelmsford Stakes.

“Royal Descent, she was a bit flat last start but I reckon it was just second up. 1600m third up for her is no problem. Rain or no rain, she will just be as hard to beat,” Waller said.

Hugh Bowman has been aboard Royal Descent at her two runs this campaign and gets the ride again on the weekend and the prospect of a wet track could be to her advantage.

Waller admits that Group 1 winner Moriarty was disappointing last start when always near the tail of the field when fourteenth to Complacent in the Chelmsford but put it down to the rain affected track and is willing to give him another chance.

“Moriarty, he was disappointing the other day, but I am pretty sure it was just the wet track,” Waller said.

Veteran jockey Jim Cassidy has been given the job to try and rejuvenate Moriarty and the eight year old will jump from the inside gate.

George Main Stakes market order at Ladbrokes.com.au: $2.90 Kermadec, $4.40 Royal Descent, $6.50 Lucia Valentina, $7 Pornichet, $13 Hooked, Sweynesse, $15 Kirramosa, $21 Hauraki, $31 Protectionist, $81 Moriarty.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?|

    At this time it seems like BlogEngine is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?|

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I believe that you should write more on this topic, it might not be
    a taboo matter but generally folks don’t speak about these issues.

    To the next! Cheers!!

    Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!|
