TRAINER Chris Waller is using a midweek Canterbury meeting to potentially vault Press Statement into Group 1 grade.

Press Statement, an impressive winner of his only start, has topweight of 59kg for the Tab.com.au Handicap (1550m) at Canterbury on Wednesday.

If Press Statement maintains his unbeaten record, Waller will consider starting the colt in the Group 1 $600,000 J.J. Atkins Stakes (1600m) at Doomben on June 6.

Press Statement is a half-brother to Waller’s former top colt Pressday, who won the J.J. Atkins (then the T.J. Smith) five years ago.

Press Statement and stablemates Encosta Line and Feast For Eyes are all entered for the Canterbury juvenile race and are among 18 Waller-trained gallopers due to race on Wednesday.

Waller will also likely to have a huge representation at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday after nominating 28 stable runners.
