Earthquake Tracking Well Ahead of 2015 Oakleigh Plate

The John O’Shea-trained Earthquake had her second official trial of the season at Cranbourne on Monday.

After recording a narrow victory over Cristalina Lago over 800 metres on January 29, crossing the line at 45.82 seconds, the three-year-old filly improved on her time this week and impressing jockey Chad Schofield in the process.

The hoop believes Earthquake is bang on target for a first-up run in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield on February 28.

“Her last jump-out here we were a bit quieter on her with it being her first one,” Schofield told Racing Victoria.

“Today she responded well and she couldn’t have trialled much better really.

“She clicked up through her gears nicely under limited pressure and no doubt she’s ready to fly with no weight on her back in the Oakleigh Plate.”

Earthquake is tracking well towards a successful autumn preparation after winning over 800 metres again but this time clocking in at 45.79 seconds, which was 0.15 seconds quicker than Lankan Rupee’s impressive winning time in an earlier trial.

The fact that she remains unbeaten from her three starts at Caulfield will also work in the filly’s favour when she resumes in the 2015 Oakleigh Plate.

Earthquake won the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) last autumn before finishing runner-up in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m).

When she resumed in the spring following a five month spell, the filly placed in both the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) before winning the Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m).

She then travelled to Flemington for the first time to run in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) but didn’t figure at all against the colts and geldings, finishing six and a half lengths off winner Brazen Beau in eighth place. It was her first unplaced run from nine starts.

However she looks on track for a successful autumn following her two impressive trials. Back the filly at Ladbrokes.com.au today to receive a $250 bonus match on your first bet. Just quote code: BETBONUS.
