Andrew Noblet looking to break group one duck with dual threat

TALENTED Victorian trainer Andrew Noblet has scored plenty of big wins throughout Australia, but he’s never won a group one – that could all change this Saturday.

Noblet will be represented by Silent Sedition in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic and Super Cash in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap, both coming into Saturday’s features as last start winners.

Silent Sedition was a stylish last start winner in the Mannerism Stakes at Caulfield where it raced as the odds-on favourite, but with all the talent it possesses there are some concerns for the four-year-old in regards to the rain-affected track.

“She’s going really well, it’s just a matter of getting through the ground at this stage,” Noblet said.

“At this point in time that’s unknown and she’s never races on it and hardly worked on it, so that’s the only query but everything else is good with her.”

The four-year-old has unfortunately drawn barrier 18 for the $600,000 feature and Noblet will take it race-by-race before looking too far into the future.

“On her day she’s up to it, she’s got a great race record and she’s going really well,” Noblet said.

“We’ll just see how she goes in this one and that will determine what we do from here.

“She’s nominated for the Doncaster and the Coolmore Legacy. Both of those are still an option, but that will all depend on what happens this Saturday – where she runs, conditions and everything.”

Noblet will also be represented by Super Cash in the Lexus Newmarket Handicap after pulling the wool over the eyes of bookmakers last time out.

The daughter of Written Tycoon scored a mightily impressive 1.25-length win in the Rubiton Stakes where it defeated the handy I Am A Star at odds of $18.

Bookmakers have opened Super Cash at $17 for this Saturday’s race and Noblet is expecting a similar effort for the handy mare which carries only 52.5kg with Ben Allen in the saddle.

“She’ll be a month between runs, but she had a stint on the water walker for a week, she’s freshened up really well,” Noblet said.

“Down in the weights…they said that last time and I thought she was pretty dominant the other day.

“She goes good down the straight and I’m sure she won’t disgrace herself there. It just depends on where she draws and the way the track is racing.”
