Teaspoon will get her chance to prove she can rise to greater heights on Saturday

Teaspoon will get her chance to prove she can rise to greater heights in the Group Three Widden Stakes as trainer Michael Freedman hunts his first stakes win since setting up shop in Sydney.

Teaspoon is one of 13 acceptors in Saturday’s two-year-old race for fillies over 1100m at Rosehill as young horses begin to push their cases for 2017 Golden Slipper berths at the same track in March.

Freedman said he was impressed with Teaspoon’s barrier trial at Warwick Farm on Monday when she ran second over 797m.

“At this stage we’re happy to run,” Freedman said.

“I just want to keep an eye on her for the rest of the week to make sure she’s come through the trial 100 per cent.”

Teaspoon made a winning debut at Canterbury on November 5, earning her four weeks in the paddock to freshen up before the lead-in to the autumn carnival.

“She seemed to enjoy the break,” Freedman said.

“Since she’s been back in and working along and with how she trialled on Monday she seems to have returned in really good order.”

While it is the time of year when Slipper dreams are being created, Freedman is not getting ahead of himself.

“I think we need to get through Saturday and see how she performs,” Freedman said.

“She’s coming off an off-season Saturday win. Saturday’s a bigger step up going into stakes grade against some good quality fillies.”

“Saturday’s run will give me a much better idea of where we head with her.”

Freedman moved to Sydney last year after leaving Singapore where he trained 12 Group One winners over eight years.

Henry The Createth returns to the track where he became Freedman’s first Sydney winner to run in Saturday’s 1400m race for three-year-olds.

After a long lay-off because of a virus, Henry The Createth beat one runner home over 1200m Randwick on January 14.

“He needed the run first-up the other day and I thought it was quite a nice run in a very leader-dominated race,” Freedman said.

“I’d be hopeful Saturday stepping up to 1400 metres with a nice draw I’ll get a much better guide with him too.”
