2016 Silver Shadow Stakes Betting: Omei Sword Favourite

Chris Waller’s promising filly Omei Sword has opened favourite in Silver Shadow Stakes 2016 betting for her return at Randwick Racecourse this weekend in Sydney.

The daughter of High Chaparral has had three starts to date, her sole win an 1100m success on debut as a two-year-old in a fillies’ maiden at Rosehill in late February.

She went on to catch the eye with a close second to Calliope in the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) back at the track in March before a last start ninth to Yankee Rose in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on April 2.

Waller has given Omei Sword three subsequent trials ahead of her first-up run back at Randwick on Warwick Stakes Day in the $175,000 Group 2 Alpha Flight Services Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m).

The race attracted a final field of 11 three-year-old fillies, Omei Sword leading early Silver Shadow Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $2.70 (in from $2.80) to kick her spring off with a win.

Hot on her heels in Silver Shadow Stakes betting at $3.70 is the lightly-raced Manaya who tracks towards a Rosehill run on September 10 in the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m).

Drawn one on the outside of Omei Sword (5) in barrier six, Glyn Schofield rides the Michael Costa-trained Hinchinbrook filly.

She trialled nicely for a fourth at Warwick Farm on August 12, a heat that left Costa with questions but that impressed Schofield.

Manaya won her debut at Scone in mid-May with an impressive win in the Listed Woodlands Stakes (1100m) and Schofield believes he can get her first past the post again on the weekend in a tougher line-up.

Third favourite at $4.50 is the filly that beat Omei Sword home in the Magic Night Stakes in the autumn, the John O’Shea-trained Calliope.

She jumps from barrier seven with James McDonald returning to the saddle of the Exceed And Excel filly.

The Godolphin-raced Calliope had McDonald aboard for her Group 2 win before Sam Clipperton jumped on for her well-beaten 12th to Capitalist where she failed to handle barrier 14 (of 16) in the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) on March 19.

The rest of the field is at double-figures to score an upset Silver Shadow Stakes result including the early market mover Thyme For Roses ($12) prepared by Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott.

Waterhouse prepared last season’s Silver Shadow Stakes winner Speak Fondly (2015), who had taken out the Magic Night Stakes as a two-year-old.

Speak Fondly went on to win the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m), finish second in the Golden Rose and win the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) last Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

This year Waterhouse’s hope Thyme For Roses is drawn in gate eight, the daughter of Redoute’s Choice after her first win since a Group 3 success down the Flemington straight in March.

She finished out of the money at Randwick on April 9 when fifth to Missrock in the Group 3 Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m), but was defeated under two lengths and has trialled twice at the track since.
