Hoof injury to Rhyno Chaser
Leading Spring Champion Stakes contender Rhyno Chaser is in danger of missing Saturday’s Group One race with a hoof problem.
Trainer Kevin Moses has advised Racing NSW stewards a nail had protruded into the sole of Rhyno Chaser’s near-fore hoof following his win in the last Saturday’s Dulcify Handicap.
The David Payne-trained Naval Escort has already been scratched from the race with a viral infection.
Formerly the equal favourite for the Spring Champion, Rhyno Chaser has eased to $3.60 leaving Predatory Pricer at the top of the market at $3.20 with TAB Sportsbet.
