Brisbane Winter Racing Calls Silent Sedition

Caulfield horseman Andrew Noblet is looking at bringing his beaten Queen Of The Turf Stakes favourite from the weekend Silent Sedition up to Queensland for the tail-end of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival 2017.

The four-year-old War Chant mare was far from disgraced at Royal Randwick on Day 2 of The Championships finishing just over a length back for fourth behind Chris Waller’s gun filly Foxplay in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m).

Silent Sedition was backing up from a win in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley the run prior and was brave in defeat after an on-pace run over the mile on a Soft (7) track.

Saturday’s race result was just the second time in seventeen career starts that Noblet’s stable ace finished worse than third, but the record is still ultra-impressive with fourth her worst result to date.

“Things didn’t work out well and Craig [Williams] said she didn’t like the track but considering all that she’s only been beaten a length in another Group 1 so she’s run well,” Noblet told Racing Victoria on Sunday.

She now heads to the paddock a Group 1 autumn winner for a well-earned break, but could be back racing as soon as June with the riches in the Sunshine State calling.

Noblet named both the $1.5 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 10 and the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) back at the track a fortnight later as possible targets.

If not Brisbane, Silent Sedition will be aimed towards some of the key Sydney and Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival features later in the year.

“She’s going to the paddock up there and we’ll have a look at her in about three weeks and see how she is and whether we go to Brisbane or wait for the spring with her,” Noblet said.

Futures Stradbroke Handicap 2017 betting is already open at and led by the Darren Weir-trained Black Heart Bart ($13) and Kris Lees’ fellow multiple Group 1 winner Le Romain ($13).

Black Heart Bart was last seen completing the CF Orr – Futurity Stakes double over the 1400m at Caulfield in February.

Four-year-old Le Romain meanwhile won the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) before a second to Winx in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m).

Things went amiss late in his prep, the son of Hard Spun finishing 15th to It’s Somewhat in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on April 1.

Silent Sedition is also being kept safe in the all-in Stradbroke Handicap odds paying $15, equal with Michael Moroney’s TJ Smith Stakes fourth-placed stallion Tivaci.

The 2017 Stradbroke Handicap nominations close at 11:00am on May 3, making now the time to check out the early markets at
