Silent Achiever Spells Ahead Of Melbourne Campaign

The O’Reilly mare ended a five-race autumn campaign with a fourth placing to Dundeel (NZ) (High Chaparral) in last Saturday’s Gr. 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick.

She had won her previous four, including the Group One weight-for-age treble of the New Zealand Stakes (2000m) at Ellerslie and the Ranvet Stakes (2000m) and The BMW (2400m) at Rosehill.

"She flew home on Monday and is in the paddock. She’s arrived home in lovely order," James said. The Melbourne Cup remains a spring target.
