Shillelagh would follow a logical path to the Dark Jewel Classic

Chris Waller is tipping more Sydney form reversals like the one turned in by former New Zealand mare Shillelagh to win the Godolphin Crown.

Sent out at double-figure odds, Shillelagh posted her first win since a transfer to Sydney’s premier stable with a come-from-behind victory in the $175,000 race at Hawkesbury on Saturday.

“I think you will see a lot of results like that over the next six weeks with a bit of sunshine about,” Waller said.

Shillelagh made a name for herself during the Melbourne spring carnival, winning at Caulfield for New Zealand trainers Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards.

But her arrival in Waller’s yard has coincided with a wet autumn and she had been beaten a combined 24 lengths in three starts for the leading trainer.

“She’s been a pretty talented mare right throughout and she came across from New Zealand in good order,” Waller said.

“But she lost her way a bit because of the wet.”

Charging down the outside for Tye Angland, Shillelagh who was $11 with Lux Bet defeated the favourite Daysee Doom ($2.70) by three-quarters of a length with Kinshachi ($17) a 1-1/4 away third.

Waller said Shillelagh would follow a logical path to the Dark Jewel Classic, a Group Three race for fillies and mares run during the Scone Cup carnival.

“Long-term a race like the Tatt’s Tiara might be worth looking out to give her a chance in an Australian Group One,” Waller said.
