Fresh is best for Noblet’s Su­per Cash

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - SPORT - CRAIG BREN­NAN

FIRST-UP spe­cial­ist Su­per Cash has con­tin­ued her affin­ity with Caulfield, claim­ing a last-stride win in yes­ter­day’s Ru­biton Stakes.

Rid­den by Craig Wil­liams, Su­per Cash was backed from $5.50 into $4.60 be­fore fol­low­ing up her win in the Group 2 sprint last year with a short half-head vic­tory over Flam­berge ($14). The $3.90 favourite Mer­chant Navy was a neck away third.

Su­per Cash is now a six­time win­ner first-up from seven prepa­ra­tions and trainer An­drew Noblet has Group 1 as­pi­ra­tions for the mare.

Noblet said Su­per Cash would again be fresh­ened and set for the Sang­ster Stakes (1200m) at Mor­phettville in May.

“Bear­ing in mind her fresh form, we gave her an­other run last time in but I think we’ll give her a quiet time now and get her ready for the Group 1 in Ade­laide,” he said.

Noblet noted a re­mark by Wil­liams when the jockey saw the five-year-old on the track dur­ing the week.

“It’s been around 12 months since Craig last rode her and he com­mented at track­work the other day how much she had filled out, but when you look at them ev­ery day, you don’t no­tice it as much,” Noblet said.

While Noblet was pre­pared to forego the New­mar­ket Hand­i­cap at Flem­ing­ton next month, Aaron Pur­cell said Group 1-win­ning colt Mer­chant Navy was right on track af­ter his third plac­ing.

“This will blow the cob­webs out and the four weeks to the New­mar­ket should be ideal,” Pur­cell said.
