Seven Horse Schillaci Stakes 2014 Field Released

A small but classy field of just seven sprinters is set to face off in the 2014 Schillaci Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse this weekend, the 1000m showdown one of eight Group races on the Caulfield Guineas Day line-up.

Due to run as Race 4 at 2:45pm, this year’s $200,000 Group 2 Anco Instant Turf Schillaci Stakes (1000m) features the much awaited returns of two exciting prospects with Rubick and Overreach first-up here.

Drawn on the rails with Kerrin McEvoy booked to ride, Gerald Ryan’s Encosta De Lago colt races for the first time since running fourth behind top filly Earthquake in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at this track on February 22.

Before that he won his opening two starts including the Blue Diamond Prelude at Caulfield, and comes off a winning Rosehill trial from late last month.

As mentioned, the Gai Waterhouse-trained Overreach is also resuming racing in the Schillaci, the Exceed And Excel mare drawn in gate six with Tommy Berry booked for the ride.

A winner of three of her five starts, the now four-year-old is best known for her Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) win at Rosehill in April last year.

Her latest start meanwhile was a third to Guelph in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) over a year ago, Saturday to be her second Caulfield run following a second in the Listed Inglis Debutant Stakes (1000m) behind Villa Verde as a juvenile.

The other two resuming Schillaci hopes on Saturday are then the Gary Moore-trained Not Listenin’tome (barrier five) and Platelet (barrier three) for Darren Weir.

Consistent Dylan Thomas gelding Not Listenin’tome has run top two in all six of his career starts so far and is undefeated first-up (2-2-0-0).

Last time in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) runner-up from November won the Group 3 Zeditave Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield, an effort Moore will be hoping he repeats here.

Strategic mare Platelet meanwhile is a dual Group 1 winner in Adelaide having taken out the Robert Sangster Stakes – The Goodwood sprint double last year, races she ran second in in her two most recent runs this autumn.

As for the three that come off lead-up form, the highest rated is Gregers for David Hayes & Tom Daberning.

Four-year-old Commands mare Gregers won first-up over 1100m here in mid-August before her smart Group 3 Cockram Stakes (1200m) success back at the track two weeks later.

She was last seen running sixth to Commanding Jewel in the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m), form her connections will hope she turns around when dropped back down in distance on Saturday.

She’s a two time winner from as many starts over the 1000m and also boasts a great Caulfield track record with three wins and a third from six runs here.

The John O’Shea-trained The Shorts fourth placegetter Sessions (barrier seven) and Bel Esprit four-year-old Iconic (barrier two) for Tony McEvoy then round out the Schillaci Stakes 2014 field.
