Supdio has shown his class in his return to racing

Supdio has shown his class in his return to racing to land an important Group race win in the Sir John Monash Stakes at Caulfield.

The Mick Kent-trained sprinter has been placed at Group One and Group Two level but a stakes win had eluded him until Saturday’s Group Three Sir John Monash Stakes 1100m weight-for-age sprint.

The five-year-old entire was sent out the $1.70 Luxbet favourite in his return from a spell and after settling back in the eight-horse field under Luke Nolen he angled into the clear in the straight before sprinting over the top of his rivals.

“He’s got a really good turn of foot,” Kent said.

“I said to Luke, ‘Don’t panic. Just be patient and try to give him some clear air’.

“It’s good to get that win out of the way because it’s his first stakes win. He’s been Group One and Group Two placed and I was dying to get him a stakes win.

“He’s come back really well this time. It’s the happiest I’ve been with him for a while.”

Supido was back in the ruck as Lord Of The Sky led the field into the home straight but Nolen was able to get the favourite into the clear to make his winning run.

Adelaide visitor Daytona Grey ($20) issued a challenge on the inside and finished three-quarters of a length away in second while Murt The Flirt ($9) was another neck away in third.

Supido, which had not raced since finished down the track in the Group One Galaxy in Sydney in March, took his record to seven wins from 13 starts.

Kent plans to press on to the Group Three Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield in two weeks before deciding his next move for the stallion prospect.

Trying to notch a Group One win will be high on the agenda for the horse that finished third in last year’s Group One Goodwood.

“I think he’s a Group One horse,” Kent said.

“He’s had a few issues. He gets sore feet and hard ground niggles him a bit.

“Then he went to Sydney in the autumn and got really heavy ground and didn’t handle that.

“But he’s had a nice break and has come back really well.”
