Silent Sedition Primed for 2016 Australasian Oaks

May 4th, 2016

Trainer Andrew Noblett is thrilled with the condition of three-year-old Silent Sedition, and is confident the three-year-old is a serious chance of breaking through for a maiden win at the highest level in Saturday’s 2016 Australasian Oaks (2000m) at Morphettville.

Silent Sedition has more than announced herself to the Australian racing community during her short but impressive career so far; posting an impressive three wins and four minors through only eight competitive starts.

Having displayed a clear affinity with the Morphettville conditions having comfortably taken out the Group 3 Auraria Stakes (1800m) a fortnight ago, Noblett told AAP has been pleased with the results posted by the War Chant filly this time and believes she will relish another step-up in distance and class in the 2016 Australasian Oaks.

“She’s had a good preparation,” Noblett said.

“It’s been as good as we hoped for so far. This is the main aim and hopefully she’s there at the end on Saturday.”

Noblett began his career as the Melbourne foreman for leading Adelaide-based trainer Leon Macdonald, and said claiming his first Group 1 title in South Australia would be special.

“For that reason it would be nice, but I’ll take a Group One anywhere,” he said.

Debuting to racing for a credible third in the Skilled @ Darley Maiden (1109m) in September, Silent Sedition clearly took improvement from the run when savaging the line for second behind Invincible Heart in the Grand Hotel Frankston BM78 (1200m) a fortnight later.

Progressing to third in the Yellowglen Plate (1400m) on Caulfield Cup Day, Silent Sedition made a commendable transition to black type company with a keen performance for fourth in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Fillies’ Classic (1600m) before returning to the paddock with a view towards autumn.

Posting a maiden race win upon resuming for success in the Vic Statewide Conveyancing Maiden (1200m) on March 4th, the filly out of Fiorentina repeated the dose in the Listed Bendigo Guineas (1400m) before finishing second in the Ladbrokes Cash In Handicap (1600m) in her only other start prior to the Auraria Stakes on April 9th.
