Stradbroke Decision Pending For Boban
Trainer Chris Waller will have a discussion with Boban's owners later this week before deciding whether to start the son of Bernardini in the $2 million Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) on Saturday week. "I am 50-50 on whether to run Boban,'' Waller told The Courier-Mail. "If it was a $750,000 race, he wouldn't be running with that weight. But given it's a $2 million race, it is worth some serious thought." He added: "If we think he can run in the top three, he will be running. But that decision will not be made until later in the week after a chat with the owners.'' Boban showed he was back to his explosive best when claiming his fourth Gr1 victory in last Saturday's Doomben 10,000.
