2016 Schweppes Oaks Target for Silent Sedition

Caulfield horseman Andrew Noblet is eyeing an Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival Group 1 for his progressive filly Silent Sedition who could target the Schweppes Oaks 2016 if she steps up at Bendigo on Saturday.

The three-year-old daughter of War Chant has had five runs to date but only put her maiden win on the board on March 4 when running away to beat home Weather The Storm by a breezy four lengths as the odds-on favourite in the $25,000 3YO Fillies Plate (1200m) at Cranbourne.

That followed her sole black-type start so far last Cox Plate Day when far from disgraced crossing under four lengths away fourth to My Poppette in Moonee Valley’s Group 2 Fillies Classic (1600m) over the mile on October 24.

She runs again second-up this weekend in the $150,000 Listed Bendigo Guineas (1400m) as one of 14 three-year-olds facing off in the showdown

Silent Sedition currently sits top of the Bendigo Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $3.80 to beat home the boys from barrier eight with jockey Nicholas Hall replacing Craig Williams in the saddle.

She faces some quality rivals in the set weights plus penalties clash including market mover Tivaci ($5.50) who won the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) on protest over subsequent Australian Guineas champion Palentino two back, visiting New Zealand-trained filly Let Her Rip ($6.50) drawn wide in barrier 12 and the Robert Smerdon-trained Group 1 performing Snitzel colt Odyssey Moon ($7).

Noblet was thrilled Silent Sedition finally broke through for a win earlier in the month and said on Saturday she would likely sit just off the pace giving her every chance to finish off strongly.

“It got a bit frustrating in the spring there for a bit,” he told Racing Victoria on Thursday.

“She got back in a couple of slowly-run races, and we probably gave ourselves no hope from bad draws.

“Back into a maiden class, ridden a bit closer, she was good.

“I don’t know if she’ll be sitting outside the leader like she was the other day, but she’ll be just behind the pace.”

Showing signs of being able to handle more distance as she progresses through this campaign, Noblet is hoping to take Silent Sedition to Adelaide in early May for a shot at the $400,000 Group 1 Schweppes Australasian Oaks (2400m) on Robert Sangster Stakes Day at Morphettville Racecourse.

“If she looks like she gets a trip, which everyone who has ridden her feels that way, hopefully we end up at the Australasian Oaks on May 7,” he said.

“But there’s a long way to go between now and then.”

Leading up to the Group 1 Nobelt is considering a run in the $100,000 Mornington Guineas (1500m) on April 2 when Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse hosts Day 1 of ‘The Championships’ including the running of the $3 million Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m).

On the Randwick card for the first Saturday in April Noblet is likely to be represented in the $200,000 Group 3 P J Bell Stakes (1200m) by Super Cash who “bounced through the run” when winning the Listed Moomba Plate (1100m) at Flemington last Saturday.
