The Silver Shadow Stakes was delayed by more than ten minutes as Godolphin runner Calliope became caught in the gates and was subsequently scratched, but Omei Sword did not appear to be fazed whatsoever when she jumped well and took a position within the classy field.

Rounding onto the final straight wide and with plenty to do, the High Chaparral filly produced a smart turn of foot when asked for an extra effort and charged home; finding the line comfortably in the clear.

Trainer Chris Waller was pleased with the filly’s first-up performance for success in the Silver Shadow Stakes and hopes she will only continue to improve through the forthcoming Spring Racing Carnival.

“She’s racing attractively now and knows what it’s all about,” Waller said after the race.

“To see her travel up the he rise and finish off as she did, it’s the sign of a good filly.

“We’ve got high hopes. You hope they come back and improve but demographics change for two and three-year-olds

“We were very pleased today.”

Jockey Brenton Avdulla delivered a gem of performance aboard Omei Sword to win the Silver Shadow Stakes and was pleased to repay Waller for handing him the ride.

“She’s pretty good,” Avdulla said.

“I remember riding her last prep and she got beaten by Calliope and things just didn’t happen for her.

“She was just a little bit knew and I said you Chris ‘you’ve got a serious horse’.

“I trialled her in her second trial back and Hughie (Bowman) trialled her on Monday and the first thing he said to be is I was going to have a lot of fun on her today,.

“I was very fortunate she didn’t get any weight and that’s why I got the ride.”

Omei Sword is on a course towards the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick on October 1st.
