Supido won his fifth straight race when taking out the Phillip Schuler Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on Monday.
Kent would like to see Supido take on higher grade in the Group 1 Goodwood Handicap at Morphetville on May 21 but concedes the sprinter may need to win another race to lift his rating enough to earn a place in the field.
Kent had intended to run Supido in last Saturday’s 2016 Bel Esprit Stakes but was balloted out of the race and potentially faces a similar dilemma in the 2016 Goodwood Handicap.
Kent will consider races such as the Group 2 Euclase Stakes in Adelaide on May 7 or a 1000 metre handicap at Flemington on the same day as possible lead-up races to the 2016 Goodwood Handicap.
HERE’S A NOTE FROM MICK KENT ABOUT THE HORSE TO OWNER’S;
Congrats to all. Great to see SUPIDO win again with such authority today. Michael reports that his immediate post race recovery was sound and he doesn’t look to have taken any harm from it. In fact, Michael thinks he will take improvement from it – about 85 – 90 per cent today.
