News:

Andrew Noblet will resist the temptation to keep going this season with Australasian Oaks runner-up Silent Sedition.

The Melbourne trainer said the filly had pulled up in great shape after her long neck second to Abbey Marie at Morphettville but he had learned his lesson from past experiences.

“I’ve had horses that I thought I could get another run out of and then you go to the races and it doesn’t work, so I don’t like afterthoughts,” Noblet said.

“At the start of her prep we were going to give her five runs. She won three and came second in two, so you can’t do much more than that.

“There’s still plenty of upside with her so we’ll give her a spell and save her for the spring and see how she shapes up.”

Noblet said Silent Sedition would have a six-week break before embarking on a spring campaign.

Stablemate Super Cash is expected to have a longer break after a tough autumn campaign.

After winning at Flemington in March, Super Cash raced in Sydney where she was heavily supported before running fifth in the P J Bell Stakes.

She then ran third and sixth on stakes races in Adelaide.

“She came through it all right but not as well as the other one,” Noblet said.

“She’d been up to Sydney and back and had a bit longer prep and felt it a bit at the end.”

Another stablemate, Group winner Sistine Demon, will line up in a 1400m handicap at Flemington on Saturday after Noblet decided to bypass the Luskin Star Stakes at Scone.

“He’s got a pretty good record at Flemington so we decided to keep at home and we’ll run him there on Saturday,” Noblet said.
