9/2/2018 Waller happy with Shillelagh

Chris Waller is expecting a big run from Shillelagh (Savabeel) in the C F Orr Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m) at Caulfield tomorrow. The six- year-old mare has been off the track since winning the Cantala Stakes (Gr 1, 1600m) in November and will race from barrier two for jockey Michael Dee in the $500,000 feature.
"She's been set for this race first-up," Waller said. "She's had the two trials in Sydney - she's a horse that races well left-handed and right-handed. She's got a great draw. Yes, it's weight-for-age, it's some of the best horses in the country running, but I think she could well be one of them. I expect her to run well, and she'll be hard to beat."
