Order Again too good in the Winter Challenge

Order Again has been rewarded for his consistency with an overdue victory in the Listed Winter Challenge, continuing Chris Waller’s domination of the feature race.

Waller has now captured six of the past nine runnings and he was rapt to see Order Again finally have some luck this campaign.

“He’s been very consistent without a lot of things going his way. It was a well-timed run and in typical Hugh Bowman style he just got there in time,” Waller said.

“Normally we have to space his races but this time it’s only been 14 days and he spent three or four days at Tim’s (Boland’s) farm to keep him happy and healthy.

“That’s the key to winning races at this time of year, happy horses.

“He’s been running around some decent horses, obviously Bandersnatch last start was a very good win, so he deserves one or two (wins) when they come his way.”

Order Again settled back in the field and stormed home to reel in Ziegfeld by a long head with the winner’s stablemate Sambro another length away third.

Jockey Hugh Bowman said Order Again was in at the right time of year but was equally capable of giving some cheek in the early-spring races.

“I think he’s going to start to come against better opposition in the coming months but he’s in good form, he’s fit and ready and those good horses are going to know he’s around if they race against him,” Bowman said.

Order Again’s victory gave Bowman a running double after he took out the preceding race aboard Starla, also for Waller.

It was the fourth victory on the program for the indominable trainer with Yiyi and No Compromise winning earlier races.
