Silent Whisper has not had a great deal of luck during his autumn campaign to date and trainer Lloyd Kennewell is hopeful that the three-year-old will have a chance of luck when he contests the 2015 Fred Best Classic at Doomben on Saturday.

Silent Whisper returned to the races in the Listed Redelva Stakes (1100m) at Morphettville on April 18 and he made up plenty of ground late to finish third behind Éclair Choice before he was blocked for a run for the majority of the straight in the Group 2 Euclase Stakes (1200m) at the same venue on May 9.

Kennewell told Racing Ahead that he was devastated by the ride that Jason Holder gave Silent Whisper in the Euclase Stakes and he believes that he was a certainty beaten, but he is happy to have stable jockey Joe Bowditch on board the I Am Invincible gelding in the Fred Best Classic this weekend.

“He was a tragedy beaten and he should have won by as far as you could throw a cricket ball that day – he was murdered,” Kennewell said.

“I don’t like them getting beat when they have been ridden poorly and decisions weren’t made at the time, but hopefully he can turn it around this Saturday and stable rider Joe Bowditch jumps back aboard.

“He is going very well, he is a horse that gives 120 percent every time that he goes around and he has been a bit unlucky in both of his runs.

“Obviously those horses that get back need a bit of luck in the run, but from the wide barrier I expected him to be the widest runner and he basically got held up the whole way.

“He rocketed to the line and he should be a good chance in that race.”

Kennewell is also set to include Deiheros in the Fred Best Classic field and while Deiheros will take a higher rating into the race and will likely be shorter with the bookmakers, he believes that there is not a great deal between the two gallopers and he is hopeful that either galloper could win the Fred Best Classic and earn a start in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) that will be held at Doomben on May 20.

“There is not that much between him and Deiheros,” Kennewell said.

“They worked together on the course proper at the Gold Coast this morning and there wasn’t a lot between them.

“They are both pretty good gallopers and I expect him to be right there as well and hopefully one of them can get the victory and get us into the Stradbroke.”

The 2015 Fred Best Classic field will be released shortly and is expected to include a capacity field of 16 runners.

    I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems?
    A small number of my blog readers have complained about my website not
    operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

    Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this
    blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if
    it’s the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the
    internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to
    help reduce content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I
    figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though!
    Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos
