John Sadler is thinking VRC Oaks with talented two-year-old Bengal Cat.

The promising filly highlighted her potential with a tough win in the Murray Cox Handicap (1400m) at Flemington on Saturday and the trainer has high hopes for her.

“I’m hopeful of bringing her back here in a fortnight and getting black-type with her (in the Listed Gibson Carmichael Stakes) and then putting her away,” Sadler said.

“Just maybe she could be an Oaks filly.”

WATCH: Bengal Cat’s win



Bengal Cat ($10) broke her maiden at her third start, getting a cosy run in transit before jockeyCraig Williams pushed out and found clear running down the outside, running down the odds-on favourite El Greco ($1.65).

“I was hoping for that, I really was - the horses have been running well but we haven’t been winning races,” Sadler said.

“I really thought she’d run well, she’s very green and got a lot to learn.

“It wasn’t until she got out into the clear that she really let go.

“You just look at her and she’s got a lovely disposition.

“I’m really excited about her.”
