Sheidel impresses in trial

Group One-winning Lindsay Park-trained sprinter Sheidel (Holy Roman Emperor x Laventour) tuned up for her return to competitive action by winning a 1000 metre barrier trial at Tatura on Tuesday morning.

The now six-year-old mare who made all to win the Gr.1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) in February, showed her trademark early speed to win heat one in convincing fashion from the front.

Lindsay Park racing manager Rayan Moore said that Sheidel was currently in peak condition ahead of her first up run in the Gr.3 The Heath 1100 at Caulfield on Saturday week.

“She looked fantastic and she is probably the best we have ever had her heading into a campaign,” Moore told ANZ Bloodstock News.

“Her form last prep was fantastic, she will kick off at Caulfield next Saturday in the Heath over 1100 metres.”

Premier Melbourne jockey Craig Williams will partner the mare in the $150,000 Group Three, and Moore said she is firmly in Lindsay Park’s calculations for The Everest (1200m) in October if she can gain the backing of a slot holder.

The daughter of Holy Roman Emperor who was born and raised at Amarina Farm is currently rated a $51 chance in the pre post betting for the inaugural $10,000,000 sprint with CrownBet.

“Craig Williams is booked to ride her. I’m sure she will be able to win a race early in the spring and maybe come into calculations for people looking at a slot for The Everest,” Moore said.  -ANZ Bloodstock News
