Omei Sword ($2.80) remains a clear favourite in 2016 Silver Shadow Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of Manaya ($3.70) and Godolphin filly Calliope ($4.50).

Will Omei Sword returning to racing in the best way possible by winning the Silver Shadow Stakes, or will one of her rivals claim an upset?

1st

Quick Feet ($15)

The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained Quick Feet will have a fitness edge of several of her major rivals and will leave from the ideal barrier 3, with only 55kgs in tow this weekend. Taking out a Warwick Farm minor over 1000m on debut in November, the Northern Meteor filly placed seventh in the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude F (1100m) upon resuming this year before placing second in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m). While failing to figure when ninth in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m), Quick Feet ran fifth in the Listed The Rosebud (1200m) first-up this time and has been confirmed to be partnered by Kerrin McEvoy.

2nd

Omei Sword ($2.80)

Omei Sword is reportedly building very well to her Spring Carnival campaign and could very well receive the run of the race in the Silver Shadow Stakes from barrier 5, and with Brenton Avdulla in the saddle. Debuting to racing for success in the Peter Svendsen Maiden (1100m) on February 24th, the daughter of High Chaparral ran a close second in the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) before a luckless run for ninth in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m).

3rd

Zelady’s Night Out ($18)

Queensland raider Zelady’s Night Out is a proven first-up performer and is over the 2016 Silver Shadow Stakes odds at her current $18 quote for success, or $4.40 to finish in the first three. Claiming a dominant win in a Doomben minor over 1050m on debut in November, Zelady’s Night Out repeated the dose in the Listed Calaway Gal Stakes (1050m) before taking out the Group 3 McLachlan Stakes (1200m). Failing to fire in two subsequent starts, the Myboycharlie filly has trialled exceptionally well leading into the Spring Carnival and will be partnered by Tommy Berry first-up.
