Rawiller back on top Kiwi mare

Nash Rawiller will ride Silent Achiever in her next appearance in the $A3 million Gr.1 Cox Plate (2040m) on October 25.

Currently in Hong Kong on a short-term contract, Rawiller will return to partner the mare for the first time since the autumn.

“He is pretty enthusiastic about her as well,” trainer Roger James said. “He can’t wait to get back and ride her.”

Rawiller won the Group One weight-for-age double of the Ranvet Stakes and BMW on Silent Achiever in Sydney in the autumn.

Damien Oliver has ridden Silent Achiever three times this spring, including her last-start ninth in the Turnbull Stakes in which she got further back than anticipated.

“To be fair to Damien, he got off her on Saturday and said my blunder,” James said -NZ Racing Desk
