Trainer Mick Kent will keep Supido fresh for his assignment in the Group 2 $200,000 Mitty’s McEwen Stakes (1000m) at The Valley on September 9 before concentrating on trying to win a Group 1 trophy during the 2017 Melbourne Spring Carnival.

Supido was the nominal favourite for the Group 3 $150,000 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) which was due to be run at Caulfield last Saturday but after gale force winds forced the meeting to be abandoned after race four, the weight for age sprint was transferred to Sunday’s program at Ladbrokes Park Lakeside at Sandown.

Kent didn’t nominate Supido for the rescheduled Bletchingly Stakes and instead sent him to the paddock to freshen up for the McEwen Stakes which will be a dress rehearsal for the Group 1 $500,000 Moir Stakes (1000m) on September 29 and the Group 1 $1m Manikato Stakes (1200m) on October 27, both at The Valley.

“I think Moonee Valley really suits him but five furlongs (1000m) might just be a little bit sharp for him because he’s a great chaser so I just wanted to get him into the paddock to keep him fresh,” Kent told racing.com.

“If he’d run last Saturday he’d have gone to the paddock straight away anyway, that was the plan so we stuck to it and I’ll just give him a week in the paddock.”

Supido showed that he has Group 1 potential when placed third behind Black Heart Bart and Under The Louvre in the Group 1 $500,000 Darley Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville during the 2016 Adelaide Autumn Carnival.

The Sebring six year old showed that he is on track for a good 2017 Spring Carnival campaign with a first up win over Daytona Grey and Murt The Flirt in the Group 3 $150,000 PFD Food Services Monash Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield on July 15.

Early betting at Ladbrokes.com.au for the Manikato Stakes has Supido listed as a $13 chance while the Team Hawkes trained Chautauqua sits at the top of the market order at $7.
