   Reliable Man was sent off a long 11-1 second choice behind the heavily-favored 3-year-old It’s a Dundeel in his second Australian start here. While the grey left no doubt as to his dominance in the end, his victory was marred when he sustained a tendon injury shortly after pulling up, which trainer Chris Waller later declared to be likely career-ending.
With yesterday’s victory, Reliable Man became a Group 1 winner on both hemispheres. He went unbeaten through his first three starts in France for trainer Alain de Royer Dupre, including the G1 Prix du Jockey Club. He collected the G2 Prix Niel two starts later and, although he went winless in his next six starts in Europe, he was far from disgraced, finishing three lengths behind So You Think (NZ) (High Chaparral {Ire}) in fourth in last year’s Royal Ascot’s G1 Prince of Wales’s, and 1 3/4 lengths off Danedream (Ger) (Lomitas {GB}) in the G1 King George a month later. He wrapped up his campaign with an eighth place finish in the GI Canadian International. Joining the Chris Waller stable thereafter, Reliable Man resurfaced with a trial victory at Warwick Farm over Group 1 winner Manawanui (Aus) (Oratorio {Ire}) Mar. 26, and was a first-up sixth behind Pierro (Aus) (Lonhro {Aus}) going 1500m in the G1 George Ryder S. at Rosehill Apr. 6. Racing prominently through this stretch out to 2000m, Reliable Man dropped back to travel midpack off the rail for the run down the backstretch. Swinging three-wide at the top of the lane, he sprinted clear in midstretch and was no match for his rivals.
