Already this year jockey Katelyn Mallyon has linked with trainer Andrew Noblet to win two feature sprints in Melbourne with Silent Sedition and Super Cash.

On Saturday, Mallyon gets the chance to add another when she rides Super Cash in the $1 million Group One Robert Sangster Stakes in Adelaide.

Mallyon won the Group Two Rubiton Stakes on Super Cash in February, making the most of the call-up to ride the talented mare.

The following month Mallyon also took her chance on the Noblet-trained Silent Sedition to land her first Group One win in the William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley.

“Katelyn has stepped up twice now,” Noblet said.

“Craig (Williams) committed to ride I Am A Star in the Rubiton so Katelyn picked up the ride and got the job done that day.

“And she got the job done again on Silent Sedition in the William Reid.

“She knows this mare and rides her really well. She has done a lot of trials on her and they seem to get on well.”

Super Cash was freshened after her unplaced run in the Newmarket Handicap in March before Noblet turned his attention to Saturday’s Group One race at Morphettville for fillies and mares.

“She had a couple of weeks down at the beach and freshened up well,” Noblet said.

“I was very impressed with her trial last week at Cranbourne. She was never off the bridle and ran good time and got through the going.

“She galloped on the course proper (at Caulfield) on Saturday morning and she’s in good order.

“If she reproduces anything similar to her Rubiton run then she’s going to be right in the mix.”

Although Noblet has been based in Melbourne throughout his training career, he hails from Adelaide and Saturday presents his latest chance to win a hometown Group One.

He went close at the corresponding meeting last year when Silent Sedition was narrowly beaten in the Australasian Oaks.

Silent Sedition became the trainer’s first Group One winner in the William Reid.
