Sargent charge clear for Randwick

Four Moves Ahead, has been given the all-clear to run in the Sweet Embrace Stakes at Randwick on Saturday after impressing her trainer John Sargent in a crucial trackwork gallop on Tuesday morning.

The promising juvenile is the 23-10 market leader to maintain her unbeaten record in the $200,000 Group 2, with the daughter of Snitzel having made a deep impression when winning by two and three-quarter lengths on Randwick’s Kensington track last month.

Originally slated to line up in last Saturday's Silver Slipper, Four Moves Ahead was scratched from that contest after she kicked out and injured a knee in the days beforehand.

However, Sargent said he was happy with how the filly had recovered and confirmed she would take her place in Saturday's key lead-up race to next month’s Golden Slipper.

"She did everything right this morning so we can put that behind us," Sargent said on Tuesday.

"Nash (Rawiller) galloped her over half a mile and she came back well. She's a natural two-year-old with a lovely attitude and she's very tractable."

Rawiller has been booked to ride Four Moves Ahead on Saturday and she is one of 18 nominations for the Sweet Embrace.

Sargent is hoping Four Moves Ahead can use this assignment as a means of stamping her credentials for the world's richest juvenile race, the $3.5million Golden Slipper, on March 20th.

She is currently a 11.00 chance to claim Group 1 glory at Rosehill, with unbeaten Inglis Millennium winner Profiteer 4.50.
