Shoot Out blotted his perfect Randwick record first-up but an impressive gallop on Tuesday has John Wallace optimistic the gelding can return to form on Saturday.

Shoot Out worked on the dirt at Randwick and a delighted Wallace is confident punters will see “a different horse” in the Group One All-Aged Stakes (1400m).

Last year’s AJC Australian Derby winner was three from three at Randwick heading into his first-up assignment in the TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) but failed to run up to expectations and finished ninth of 11 in the event won by a dominant Black Caviar.

“I was very happy with his work this morning, he worked like the Shoot Out of old,” Wallace said.

“And he’s definitely done well since his first-up run.

“With the way he worked I’d be very disappointed if he doesn’t run a good race on Saturday.”

Shoot Out worked over 1000m with trackwork rider Daniel Small in the saddle and impressed Wallace with the way he strode out over the final 600m of the hitout.

“He’s in good order and I’m hopeful of a lot better race because I was a bit disappointed in his run first-up,” the Gold Coast-based trainer said.

“I think he just needed the run, he had a good blow afterwards, and I think he just got run off his legs as well.

“He raced like a stayer coming out of a Melbourne Cup, a horse like Shocking raced half the same early in his preparation in Melbourne too.”

Shoot Out finished 11 lengths from Black Caviar but she defeated Hay List by 2-3/4 lengths and Hay List beat the rest of the field by five lengths.

Wallace expects Saturday’s 1400m weight-for-age contest to be more suitable for Shoot Out who is being aimed at the Queensland winter carnival with the Hollindale Stakes (1800m) and then the Group One Doomben Cup (2020m) his main targets.

“This is a totally different style of race,” Wallace said of the All-Aged Stakes.

“It’s not an easy race, but it’s a different style of race.

“They went lickety-split in the TJ Smith and they were too good for him over the 1200 metres.

“I think you’ll find a different horse on Saturday and I just hope he keeps improving because his main goals are the races in Brisbane.”

The All-Aged attracted 17 nominations with Shoot Out one of 10 individual Group One winners.
