Horses to follow and blackbookers who caught the Blackbook.com.au team's eye at the Robert Sangster Stakes and Australasian Oaks Day meeting at Morphettville on May 1.
Race 1 - Silent Theory (second). No match for See You In Spring over the 1050m dash but the winner had race experience and tactical speed with this circuit rewarding the on-pace runners early. Strong late despite never being in winning calculations and step up to 1200m via the National Stakes on May 15 looks a logical progression.
Race 2 - Hasta La War - (fourth). Ultimately, was just one run short and given he was 1200m-1600m second-up off a 14 months spell, adds further merit to this performance. Ridden quiet and still spotting them plenty of ground at the 100m, launched late to only be defeated half a length. Recorded easily the fastest last 600m of the race (33.89).
Race 5 - Shop Til I Drop (second). Another runner second-up off a long spell (18 months) but hasn't gone backwards, recording another second placing staying at the mile and was unlucky here with the eventual inside passage not opening until the 100m. The Centaurea Stakes over 2000m on May 15 looks the perfect third-up assignment.
