VICTORIAN trainer John Sadler’s vast experience told him that Japhils was ready to run a big race in yesterday’s Listed HC Nitschke Stakes at Morphettville.

And the lightly raced filly certainly delivered on the astute horseman’s predictions, claiming a sharp all-the-way win in the $80,000 feature following a perfectly judged ride by Dean Yendall.

Japhils simply ran her rivals off their legs, scooting clear under Yendall’s urging towin by 2¼ lengths from the favourite, fellow Victorian Actuariat, who finished stoutly after struggling to find open ground until too late.

Yendall reported his mount had travelled beautifully and she had little trouble extending when he asked her for a kick.

“She felt really good a long way from home. She was never in doubt,” the hoop said.

Sadler said he had altered Japhils’ training program during the week – and it had paid off in spades.

“Normally she’d just work on Tuesday then that would do her for the week,” Sadler said.

“But she was so well in herself that I decided to gallop her again on Thursday. My son, Thomas, rode her and when he got off her he told me she was absolutely flying.”

Sadler was particularly pleased Japhils had claimed an all-important black type victory at just her sixth start.

“That means so much for a filly like her,” he said. And Japhils’ Adelaide feature-race raid may not be over just yet.

Sadler said he would consider backing up the filly in next week’s $175,000 Queen of the South Stakes, a Group 2 race over 1600m.

“She’ll stay in Adelaide now. I’ll have to see how she is early in the week . . . but it’s a possibility,” he said. “Adelaide has certainly been very good to me over the years.”

Sadler could have a strong hand at next week’s program, the first meeting of the three-week UBET Adelaide Racing Carnival.

He has pre-post favourite Vain Queen entered in the Group 1 $400,000 William Hill Classic.
