Group One filly chasing Adelaide double

Belle du Nord (Reliable Man) has headed to Australia with fresh legs for a two-race Adelaide campaign.

The Group One performer who was born and raised at Curraghmore for breeder Nearco Stud arrived safely in Melbourne on Wednesday night.

Runner-up in last season’s Gr.1 Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes, Belle du Nord added another top-flight placing to her record this term in the Gr.1 Levin Classic (1600m) before finishing a last-start seventh in the Gr.1 New Zealand Oaks (2400m).

“She didn’t really look like she stayed the Oaks distance so we’ve freshened her right up,” said Emma-Lee Browne, who trains the Reliable Man filly with her husband David.

“It was a little bit too far for her, it was roughly run and she got a bit of a bump along the way so she wasn’t disgraced.

“She’s travelled over here well and she’ll go on to Adelaide and run at Morphettville in the Laelia Stakes over a mile on Saturday week and then on to the Schweppervescence Stakes over 1800m on April 21.”

The Laelia is a Listed contest and the Schweppervescence is a Group Three event. -NZ Racing Desk
