Caulfield trainer Andrew Noblet is giving Silent Sedition a ‘live’ chance when she lines up in the Group 1 $600,000 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill on Saturday.
Silent Sedition earned her chance to chase Group 1 glory with a last start all the way win in the Group 3 $150,000 Premier Signs Mannerism Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on February 25 and is one of twenty-five fillies and mares nominated for the Coolmore Classic.
“I think she is a really live chance in the race, her form is great and she deserves a go at a race like this,” Noblet told racing.com.
“She has pulled up great. She has had a good week since.”
Sydney has had a horrific run with bad weather over the 2017 Autumn Carnival with the last two feature Saturday meetings having to be run on heavy tracks, but Noblet is hoping the forecast for this week is correct with only light showers tipped for the remainder of the week.
“All things being equal I think the rain is going to pull up this week so hopefully the track is in reasonable condition for her but all in all couldn’t be happier with the mare,” Noblet said.
Silent Sedition has done all of her racing in Victoria and Noblet will prepare the War Chant mare for the Sydney way of gong with a clockwise gallop at Caulfield on Tuesday morning.
“She will have a gallop reverse way tomorrow morning in preparation for Saturday,” Noblet said.
In early betting for the Coolmore Classic at Ladbrokes.com.au, Silent Sedition is marked at $17 while the Chris Waller trained Omei Sword heads the market order at $3 ahead of Ron Quinton’s last start Guy Walter Stakes winner Dixie Blossoms and the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Global Glamour both at $7.
Omei Sword’s start to her Autumn Carnival campaign was delayed after the filly was suffering from muscle soreness but she resumed with an eye catching first up second to Kiwi filly La Bella Diosa in the Group 2 $200,000 Theraces.com.au Surround Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on February 25 with Global Glamour finishing in third spot.
The Mandy and Matt Brown trained La Bella Diosa is also nominated for the Coolmore Classic and is next in the market order at $9.50.
