If Not Now When Runs in 2016 Dequetteville Stakes

Caulfield horseman Henry Dwyer takes his promising filly If Not Now When to Adelaide this weekend looking to keep her undefeated record in check with success in the Dequetteville Stakes 2016 at Morphettville Racecourse.

One of the key support races on the RN Irwin Stakes Day program, this season’s $100,000 Listed Dequetteville Stakes (1050m) attracted 15 two-year-old fillies at nomination stage on Monday.

The highest-rated of those boasting two wins from as many starts back home in Victoria is Dwyer’s daughter of Artie Schiller If Not Now When.

On debut the $15,000 bargain buy from the 2015 Inglis VOBIS Gold Yearling Sale saluted over 1000m at Bendigo in the VOBIS Gold Rush on March 19.

Her latest run was in another VOBIS-restricted race, the $100,000 Gold Plate (1000m) at Cranbourne on April 1.

After taking out the latter as the odds-on favourite, If Not Now When took her career winnings up over $234,000.

She is a dual nominee across two states for her third run including the $80,000 Super VOBIS Two-Years-Old Fillies Handicap (1100m) at her home Caulfield track.

Dwyer however takes her out of Melbourne for the first time and is hoping to get a black-type win on the board in South Australia’s Dequetteville Stakes.

“We thought she was just a speedy little thing and might be limited to 1000m but the way she got back and finished off was terrific,” Dwyer told Racenet.

“We didn’t want her to be there but she was good enough to overcome it.”

Her main dangers in the Morphettville black-type include the Terry & Karina O’Sullivan-trained Moshki coming off the Listed Cinderella Stakes (1050m) win at the track from March 5 and the in-form Denman filly Neapolitan for Phillip Stokes who comes off back-to-back Adelaide victories.

To help bring If Not Now When on for her stakes debut, Dwyer ran her on the steeple grass at home on Tuesday morning, which followed a serious gallop last Thursday.

“She worked on the steeple over 800m and ran home her last 400m by herself,” Dwyer said.

“She’s pretty lazy by herself but we worked her with a mate on the course proper here last Thursday and that was enough for her not to need another hard gallop here today.”

The paddock is the most likely post-Saturday option for the filly, who will come back for the spring, but Dwyer could be convinced to keep her going if she wins and comes through the race in top order.

“She’s done a pretty big job because she’s been in work right through from breaking in,” Dwyer said, also confirming apprentice Mick Dee would retain the ride on Saturday.
