GODOLPHIN SILKS.jpeg

THIS 3 YEAR OLD FILLY IS AS BIG A BLUE BLOOD AS THE COLOUR OF THE GODOLPHIN SILKS THEMSELVES. SHE’S SIRED BY CHAMPION RACEHORSE AND SIRE LONHRO OUT OF THE EXTREMELY TALENTED GROUP 1 WINNING RACE MARE, REGAL CHEER.

 

SHE COMES INTO THIS RACE UNDEFEATED A WINNER OF 2 RACES FROM 2 STARTS.

 

ON DEBUT IN JULY, IN A 2 YEAR OLD FILLIES MAIDEN OVER 1100M AT WYONG (SLOW 6 TRACK RATING) SHE HAD A HORROR RUN IN TRANSIT FROM A WIDE GATE AND WAS 3 & 4 WIDE WITHOUT COVER, UP ON THE SPEED THE WHOLE WAY.

 

SHE DIDN’T HANDLE THE TIGHT WYONG HOME TURN AND WOBBLED BADLY WHEN CORNERING. WHEN SHE FINALLY BALANCED UP ABOUT 100M OUT FROM HOME, THERE WASN’T MUCH GAS IN THE TANK BUT SOMEHOW SHE FOUND THE GREAT TENACITY THE FIND AND STICK HER HEAD OUT AND WIN ON DEBUT.

 

THE RUNNER UP WHO CHARGED HOME AFTER HAVING A LOVELY RUN BACK IN THE FIELD, MISS BENETEAU, HAS SINCE GONE ON TO REALLY FRANK THAT FORM, RUNNING A VERY NARROW THIRD IN THE $100,000 ROSEBUD STAKES AT ROYAL RANDWICK DURING THE SPRING CARNIVAL. 

 

SHE THEN JUMPED STRAIGHT INTO A MID-WEEK CITY RACE AT CANTERBURY, OVER 1250M IN A 3 YEAR OLD FILLIES, BENCHMARK 66 GRADED RACE.

 

SHE JUMPED VERY WELL USING HER EARLY PACE TO SETTLE IN THE BOX SEAT ON THE HEAVY 8 TRACK. SHE TRAVELLED BEAUTIFULLY IN THE RUN THE WHOLE WAY (CLEARLY HANDLES THE GOING VERY WELL JUST LIKE MUM!) BUT WHEN THEY TURNED FOR HOME SHE WAS MOMENTARILY POCKETED, BEFORE JOCKEY BLAKE SHINN QUICKLY SWITCHED OFF HEELS BACK TO THE INSIDE.

 

SHE HAD NO FEAR IN TAKING A NARROWISH INSIDE RAILS RUN AND LOOMED UP, SWEPT PAST THEN WENT AWAY FROM THE SHORT PRICED FAVOURITE FROM THE WALLER YARD, OVERSTEP TO WIN BY 1.5L. 3RD, 3.1L OFF PRECAUTIONS WAS THE PORTELLI TRAINED ZAFINA.

 

THE FORM BEHIND HER OUT OF THE EASY WIN HAS BEEN EXCEPTIONAL!

 

RUNNER-UP OVERSTEP WENT OK IN A GROUP 2 RACE THE NEXT START AFTER, BEFORE GAINING BLACK TYPE WITH A LUCKLESS 3RD IN THE LISTED CROCKETT STAKES AT MOONEE VALLEY ON COX PLATE DAY. SHE’S SHOWN TERRIFIC SPEED / TALENT ALL ALONG BUT WAS NO WHERE NEAR A MATCH FOR PRECAUTIONS!

 

3RD PLACED GETTER OUT OF THE CANTERBURY WIN OF PRECAUTIONS WAS ZAFINA. AT HER NEXT STAT SHE JUMPED SHARPLY UP IN GRADE INTO THE GROUP 2, 3YO-F, 1200M SILVER SHADOW STAKES AT ROYAL RANDWICK. SHE SETTLED A LONG LAST IN THE SMALL FIELD OF 9, BUT RAN HOME VERY WELL IN THE STRAIGHT TO FINISH 5TH BEATEN 5L, BEHIND THE ULTRA TALENTED OMEI SWORD WHO LOOKED CERTAIN TO WIN MULTIPLE SPRING GROUP 1’S BEFORE GETTING INJURED. SHE THRASHED THEM ALL BY 3.5L. BUT ZAFINA FINISHED ALONGSIDE BOTH BARACELLA & QUICK FEET WHO HAVE BOTH BEEN PLACED SINCE IN GROUP 2 COMPANY.

 

AS YOU CAN SEE THE FORM OUT OF BOTH OF PRECAUTIONS’ TWO WINS IS NOTHING SHORT OF SUPERB! IT’S GROUP 1 & GROUP 2 QUALITY FORM. 

 

SHE TAKES ONLY A VERY MINOR STEP UP IN GRADE HERE RESUMING AT ROYAL RANDWICK ON BOXING DAY, INTO AN OPEN 1200M 3YO BENCHMARK 70 GRADE RACE. IT’LL BE THE FIRST TIME SHE’S TAKEN ON THE BOYS AND SHE’LL BE ASKED TO CARRY 57.5KG, BUT DESPITE THE PRESENCE OF A COUPLE OF LAST START WINNERS REPRESENTING GOOD STABLES, IN MY OPINION SHE HAS LENGTHS ON THEM ALL. SHE’S DRAWN THE EXTREME OUTSIDE, 8 OF 8, BUT IN THE VERY SMALL FIELD AND WITH THE TERRIFIC GATE SPEED SHE HAS SHE’LL BE ABLE TO CROSS AND LEAD ON THE FENCE OR AT VERY WORST SIT OUTSIDE THE LEAD, I CAN’T SEE HER BEING TRAPPED WIDE UNDER ANY SCENARIO IN SUCH A SMALL FIELD.

 

SHE’S TRIALLED TWICE IN READINESS FOR THIS FIRST UP ASSAULT AND BOTH HER TRIALS HAVE BEEN RIPPERS UNDER THE RIDING OF JAMES DOYLE WHO ALSO TAKES THE MOUNT IN THE RACE, SO HE’LL KNOW HER WELL. SHE’S BEEN HEAVILY RESTRAINED IN BOTH TRIALS BUT HAS STILL RUN ON VERY WELL IN BOTH, ESPECIALLY HER LATEST EFFORT WHEN 2ND IN THE TRIAL A FORTNIGHT AGO. 

 

THE SKY REALLY IS THE LIMIT FOR THIS FILLY AND I HAVE VERY LITTLE DOUBT IN MY MIND SHE’S A GROUP 1 QUALITY FILLY AND WILL WIN MULTIPLE GROUP RACES BEFORE HE ONLY YOUNG CAREER IS DONE. 

 

SHE’LL PUT THESE AWAY EASILY FOR MINE AND BRING UP A HAT-TRICK ON WINS AND REMAIN UNDEFEATED.

 

I’M SHOCKED BY THE PRICE THEY’RE BETTING OF $4.00, I THINK THAT’S HUGE OVERS. I’VE GOT HER RATED A GENUINE $2.10-$2.20 CHANCE ON PAPER AND FORM RATINGS, SO THE $4.00 IS A LUXURY….I’D BE GETTING ON ASAP BECAUSE SURELY SUCH A GOOD THING CANNOT LAST LONG!

 

GOOD PUNTING!
