Exciting two-year-old Probabeel remains on target for the Gr. 1 Sires’ Produce Stakes at Randwick next month following her commendable sixth in her Australian debut yesterday.
The Savabeel filly was all at sea in the heavy conditions in the Gr. 3 Magic Night Stakes at Rosehill before putting in a solid finish from near last.
Trainer Jamie Richards is confident the Savabeel filly will take plenty of benefit from the run, her first since winning the Karaka Million 2YO at Ellerslie in late January.
“The track at Rosehill was very deep and testing and she didn’t handle it all that well,” he said. “She dipped and dived a fair bit and had to make a long, sustained run to get near them, which is never easy at that track.
“I thought she kept coming nicely and I know she will be better for the run. I guess when you see a six in her formline it doesn’t look that great, but given the circumstances I think it was a satisfactory effort.
“She has come through the run nicely, so it is all go for the Sires’ Produce in three weeks.”
