Trainer Chris Waller’s classy filly She’s All Class out for autumn but Golden Slipper hopes still abound

Chris Waller’s talented filly She’s All Class is the latest high profile two-year-old to be ruled out of the $3.5 million Golden Slipper.

Sydney’s leading trainer advised Racing NSW stewards on Friday that She’s All Class would not race again this autumn.

She’s All Class produced an outstanding effort to nearly run down Four Moves Ahead in the Sweet Embrace Stakes last Saturday but her loss left her way down the Golden Slipper order of entry.

Waller had been concerned about keeping She’s All Class in training through the autumn as the filly has had a long campaign that included her third in the Magic Millions.

With She’s All Class out of the Golden Slipper mix, Waller can still have a strong presence in the world’s richest juvenile race on March 20 with the likes of Home Affairs, O’President, Shaquero and Head Of State still in contention.

Silver Slipper winner Home Affairs continues his preparation toward the Golden Slipper on March 20 when he contests the Group 2 $300,000 Todman Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick on Saturday.

Godolphin trainer James Cummings is also looking to strengthen his Golden Slipper team when Anamoe contests the Todman Stakes while four fillies, Sliders, Vianello, Testimonial and Trifaccia line up in the Group 2 $300,000 Reisling Stakes (1200m).

Anamoe has shown considerable promise in four starts, winning the Listed Merson Cooper Stakes and finishing third in the Group 1 Blue Diamond. He also has enough prizemoney banked to make the Golden Slipper field.

“He’s come up to Sydney in good shape after his excellent Blue Diamond placing,”

Cummings said.

“A repeat of that effort will see him be very competitive.”

Cummings said there wasn’t a lot between his Reisling quartet although he seemed to have a slight leaning to Trifaccia and Vianello.

“Trifaccia’s debut effort was full of merit,” Cummings said. “We have a real liking for this classic-looking filly out of a home-bred mare.

“Vianello had the speed to win over 900m in her first preparation, showing abundant natural ability, but this preparation has seen her finish stoutly, including a second placing to a smart colt (Stay Inside). The return to fillies company should be ideal.”

Cummings admitted Sliders has to prove she can run a strong 1200m and Testimonial trialled nicely at Hawkesbury last week.
“Sliders is a half-sister to Flit so we are hopeful she will get the trip,” Cummings said.

“Testimonial will race with the addition of winkers which should have her focused.”
