Maybe Discreet Targets Myer Classic 2013

She’s a Group 1 winner back home in Adelaide and this spring Phillip Stokes’ smart filly Maybe Discreet will get her chance to hit the big time with an interstate elite level targeting the 2013 Myer Classic in Melbourne.

A nicely-bred daughter of Shamardal who turns four on Thursday, the official birthday for all Australian thoroughbreds, Maybe Discreet was last seen running away to win the Group 1 Schweppes Oaks (2000m) at Morphettville on April 27.

That easy two and a half length effort was her fourth win from 11 starts, her other big win being a narrow but impressive victory over Members Joy in the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1610m) at Flemington last Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Stokes tested Maybe Discreet in a Group 1 back then running her in the Thousand Guineas over the Caulfield mile last October.

She could only manage to finish seven lengths away 11th to Commanding Jewel, set to return from an injury enforced spell shortly heading towards the 2013 Cox Plate, then however.

Maybe Discreet gets another go in Victoria for her second carnival appearance this season with her grand final aim to be the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day, Saturday November 2.

While she showed her ability to stretch out to the 2000m with her Australasian Oaks success Stokes maintains that the mile is where Maybe Discreet is most comfortable, something he hopes she’ll show come Derby Day.

He’s looking at a four race campaign culminating in the Myer Classic with her first run in Melbourne likely to be the $220,000 Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on October 19 after she resumes back home.

“I want to give her a four-race campaign, it just depends on how quickly she comes to hand,” Stokes told the Daily Telegraph.

“She’ll probably run in races like the Tristarc Stakes at Caulfield and I might kick her off here in the Wylie Handicap.”

The $80,000 Listed WH Wylie Handicap (1100m) runs at Morphettville on September 21.

“She’s in good order, she’s just started doing even-time, I’m bringing her along slowly,” Stokes added.

“She’ll have a trial next month and we’ll go from there.”
