Warwick Farm trainer Bjorn Baker has reported that Candelara has recovered well from her two and a quarter lengths win in the Group 3 $200,000 TAB Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m) at Randwick at the postponed first day of ‘The Championships’.

“She has come through that race ‘super’, I could not be happier with her,” Baker told The Daily Telegraph.

“She had a good fitness base going into that race, I gave her plenty of work between runs and we were confident she would run well.’’

Adrian Knox winning jockey Hugh Bowman will be aboard Candelara again in the Australian Oaks and Baker is certain that the Real Saga filly can take advantage of her good barrier draw at gate two and race on the pace again after leading all the way on Monday.

“From the barrier, she is going to be an ideal run because she has good gate speed and can put herself thereabouts in the run,’’ Baker said.

Candelara has been marked as an $11 chance and will be coming up against some of the same fillies that she beat in the Adrian Knox Stakes including the runner-up Rustic Melody, fourth placegetter Gust Of Wind and the Chris Waller trained Wine Tales who finished sixth.

Waller will also saddle up the $4.20 favourite Winx and the improving Ballet Suite who is well up in the market order at $7 with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Winx was a winner two starts back in the Group 2 $175,000 Cellarbrations Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill on March 14 before running an unlucky fifth to Fenway in the Group 1 $400,000 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill on March 28.

While Ballet Suite finished fourth in the Vinery Stud Stakes after winning over 1600m in a BenchMark 70 at Randwick on March 11.

Australian Oaks market order at Ladbrokes.com.au: $4.20 Winx, $6 Fenway, $6.50 Thunder Lady, $7 Ballet Suite, $7.50 Savaria, $11 Candelara, $16 Gust Of Wind, Adrift, $19 Rustic Melody, Zarzali, $34 Sweet And Speedy, Wine Tales, $151 Wildenstein.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring a problem to
    light and make it important. More people have to check this out and understand this side of

    Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many options out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any recommendations? Kudos!
