2016 Autumn Carnival for Fillies Classic’s Silent Sedition

Caulfield horseman Andrew Noblet confirmed Saturday’s 2015 Moonee Valley Fillies Classic will be the season swansong for his progressive maiden Silent Sedition who will be put in the paddock post-Saturday ahead of an Autumn Carnival return.

Nine three-year-old fillies take to the Moonee Valley track in Race 3 on Cox Plate Day for this year’s $200,000 Group 2 Moonee Valley Fillies Classic (1600m) including Noblet’s lightly-raced daughter of War Chant Silent Sedition.

Leading the latest Moonee Valley Fillies Classic odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, who are offering an Extra 50% on your very first Fixed Odds winner in Races 1 – 5 on Cox Plate Day, is the rails-drawn My Poppette ($3.60) prepared by fellow Caulfield trainer Robert Smerdon.

The next best in Moonee Valley Fillies Classic betting sitting narrowly ahead of the Gai Waterhouse-trained Sempre Libera ($5) in her Melbourne debut and Don’t Doubt Mamma ($5) is Silent Sedition ($4.80).

Drawn a treat in barrier three with Craig Williams taking over from suspended Luke Currie, Silent Sedition has had three runs for two thirds and a second to date in non-black type company.

She steps up to stakes grade for her Group race debut on Saturday running at Moonee Valley for the first time and looking to break her maiden status in a field of better performed fillies with experience in tougher line-ups.

Her latest run saw her cross one and a quarter lengths away third behind Andrioli in Caulfield’s Yellowglen Plate (1400m) on Caulfield Cup Day only last weekend as the beaten favourite.

She is on the short back-up into the Moonee Valley Fillies Classic and Noblet is hoping for a good end-of-prep run before she heads for a freshen-up ahead of the 2016 Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

“I would say she’d go to the paddock after Saturday. I want her going to the paddock feeling well, not flat,” he told Racing Victoria.

“It’s a pretty quick turnaround to the autumn. I don’t want to flatten her right out, the way she’s been this week, she’s certainly not that.

“I think if she runs well, win, lose or draw Saturday, she can have a rest and get ready for the autumn.”

A number of the other fillies in Saturday’s showdown will continue on this Spring targeting the $1 million Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) at Flemington Racecourse on Thursday November 5.

The shortest-priced of the Moonee Valley Fillies Classic acceptors in futures VRC Crown Oaks odds at Ladbrokes.com.au is Sempre Libera ($17) whose trainer Waterhouse saw enough in her last start eighth in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) back home to earn a trip south.

Noblet is also confident Williams, who was aboard Silent Sedition’s last start conqueror last weekend, will give his filly a nice ride on the weekend despite not having ridden her before.

“If you can’t beat them, join them,” he said.

“She won’t even do much this week. She had the race last week. We’ll just keep her ticking over this week.

“No doubt Craig’s looked at all her tapes, he’ll work it out. He’s a worthy replacement given Luke’s unfortunately suspended.”

Stepping up to a mile on Saturday, Noblet will instruct Williams to take Silent Sedition up closer to the pace from that draw after Currie rode her cold at her two last starts.

“She’s drawn a good gate – the other day we intended to be midfield,” he explained.

“The way the race was run up in front, stop-start … the pace just didn’t suit her last time.

“Ideally, she doesn’t have to be back – at only her second start in a race, we wanted to make sure she had something to follow through the race.

“The other day it wasn’t that we were far back, the way the race was run cost us I think.”
