Having lined up for two race starts and secured as many wins in his short racing career so far, Law has quickly risen as a frontrunner in betting markets for the major Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill on April 5th.

Waterhouse, who has also included Hampton Court in nominations for the 2014 Silver Slipper, has an understandably high opinion of the exciting Denman colt and is likely to Law in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) on March 22nd as a final lead-up run before the Golden Slipper.

Also featuring in nominations for the 2014 Silver Slipper is exciting filly Mossfun.

Having also claimed two wins from two starts, Mossfun was near-perfect when comfortably beating Ygritte and Twirl to the line in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on February 15th.

Having received somewhat noticeable attention in Golden Slipper betting markets early, Team Hawkes have earmarked the Group 1 Sires Produces Stakes (1400m) one week later as a target for the talented Mossman filly on the chance of a poor barrier draw in the world’s richest race for two-year-olds.

Peter Snowden-trained Ghibellines is yet to experience a win in his short two race career, however is set to line-up for a maiden tilt at Group level after also appearing in 2014 Silver Slipper nominations.

Stablemate to Golden Slipper favourite Earthquake, Snowden revealed a complete autumn path has not been set for Ghibellines, with results and form to decide which direction will be taken by the young Shamardal colt.

Currently sitting as outright second-favourite for the Golden Slipper, exciting colt Unencumbered will be aiming for his sixth win from only seven starts this preparation in the 2014 Silver Slipper, having also been included in nominations.
