Super Cash won the1100m Rubiton stakes on Saturday at the Caulfield. It was her first start after she finished eighth in the 1200m Group 1 Darley Classic on the 11 November 2017. This year Noblet will not want to follow the same path he pursued last year but will focus the filly to only weight restricted races including group 1 Sangster Stakes to be held on 5th of May 5.
Noblet said that they are planning to get her to Sangster, but for now, he just wants to have her rest as she waits for her next run. The focus should be on group 1 Sangster Stakes which is a good option for her even though there is the temptation to press her on in other races. According to Noblet, if the filly can maintain the same form she displayed on Saturday, then she has a good chance of doing well in many of the races this year. She appears to be in good shape and has thrived well during her break.
She looked well on Sunday a day after the race even though she looked stiff today because of muscle soreness. He observed that she put on some weight during the three weeks off, but it is a good sign that shows she has matured.
Elsewhere, the Grant Young is gearing up to winning Adelaide Cup even though he looks better placed to win the premiers staying test. He has been training Tunes who came second to Purple smile (Exalted Lightning) in the 2016 cup. Exalted won the $100,000 Birthday cup on Saturday and seemed to be better placed to take part in this year’s 32000m which will be run on March 12. Exalted Lightening ($9) showed that she was capable of doing well in the early stages of the race and unleashed a powerful bust in the closing stages to win the race by one ¾ length. Exalted Lightning has maintained a good record at the Young’s Murray Bridge since he joined it six months ago. Young said that he likes seeing him ridden like that and that he has done everything possible to get him fit. He said that he is pleased with the latest form and he is preparing him to take part in the grand finale to be held in three weeks’ time where he will be expected to contest the two miles race. Pannell said that he was impressed by the six-year-old performance and he is well set to go for the Adelaide Cup prized at $400000.
