Andrew Noblet has major plans for Silent Sedition after the filly graduated from a maiden win to stakes company at Bendigo.
The lightly raced daughter of War Chant showed Noblet ability at her debut campaign last spring but it was the benefit of a spell that has allowed her to take the next step.
It was evident as she disposed of a handy field in the Listed Bendigo Guineas on Saturday.
Providing Nick Hall with the third leg of a winning treble, Silent Sedition ($4.20) scored by 1-3/4 lengths from Amadeus ($7) with Odyssey Moon ($4) a half length away third.
“She developed well in her last spell and it’s coming to fruition now,” Noblet said.
“She’s on her way to hopefully something a bit bigger.”
Noblet said Silent Sedition may head to Mornington on April 3 but longer term he is eyeing the Australasian Oaks at Morphettville in May.
The trainer said he couldn’t see why the filly wouldn’t appreciate a rise in trip after her victory over 1400m.
Hall has a healthy opinion of the filly and said she should be further improved by the Guineas outing.
“She settles but also has a really great turn of foot,” Hall said.
“Today she just peaked on her run a bit and she might just benefit from the run if we’re going up in trip.”
Hall’s earlier winners were both for Lindsay Park with horses that were having their first starts for the stable.
French import Pilote D’Essai took out the opening race with co-trainer Tom Dabernig hopeful the four-year-old can develop into a spring player while the former Tony McEvoy-trained Manhattan Blues took out the third race, the Mittys Sprint.
First-starter If Not Now When gave her connections a healthy payday, capturing the VOBIS Gold Rush at her first race start.
The $15,000 yearling purchase won $137,500 for her owners.
Katelyn Mallyon posted a race-to-race double on two front-runners, landing the Gold Bracelet on Written and the Listed Golden Mile on the Lloyd and Nick Williams-owned Nevis.
