Thirteen three-year-old fillies are poised to target black type success at Royal Randwick on Saturday, following the release of 2016 Silver Shadow Stakes nominations.
A number of horses that have not been seen at the races since autumn are poised for a competitive return, including talented Godolphin filly Calliope, who has been included in 2016 Silver Shadow Stakes nominations.
Debuting to racing for success in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) on October 3rd, Calliope returned to racing this year for a credible fifth in the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude F (1100m) on February 13th.
Producing a particularly smart effort to take out the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) on March 12th, the Exceed And Excel filly has not been seen at the races since failing to make anything of an impact and twelfth in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m).
Chris Waller is set to be represented in the fillies’ feature after including Omei Sword in 2016 Silver Shadow Stakes nominations.
Debuting to racing for success in the Peter Svendsen Maiden (1100m) on February 24th, Omei Sword ran second in the Magic Night Stakes before ending her season ninth in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) on April 2nd.
Interstate raiders are set to resume in Sydney this weekend including Zelady’s Night Out, who has been incorporated into 2016 Silver Shadow Stakes nominations by leading Queensland trainer Tony Gollan.
Immediately stamping herself as a filly to follow when taking out the 4-Game Flexi Membership Handicap (1050m) in November, Zelady’s Night Out continued to impress in winning each of the Listed Calaway Gal Classic (1050m) and Group 3 McLachlan Stakes (1200m).
Finishing ninth in the Magic Millions 2.y.o Guineas (1200m) on January 9th, the Myboycharlie filly was unable to beat a runner home in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) on March 5th and was returned to the paddock.
The 2016 Silver Shadow Stakes field and barrier draw is due to be completed and released by midday, Wednesday.
