NASH Rawiller expects Silent Achiever to feature prominently in Saturday’s Memsie Stakes and he also expects to ride the mare for the rest of her Spring campaign, reports Racing Network.

Rawiller is unable to ride the four-time Group 1 winner at Caulfield on Saturday as he’s riding in Japan. But he'll be back on Silent Achiever in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes at Caulfield on September 20.

“I reckon that mare will be a really good chance on Saturday,” Rawiller said. “Her run in the race last year was unbelievable. She never got a crack at them at any stage in the straight.”

Rawiller finishes his riding stint in Japan on September 14 then heads to Hong Kong where he has accepted a four-month contract. He will be available for rides throughout the spring in Melbourne and Sydney that don’t coincide with a Hong Kong meeting.

Rawiller, who rides at Sapporo on the weekend, has ridden four winners and five seconds from about 30 rides during his two months in Japan.

“I’ve found it pretty difficult to get rides. I’ve been restricted badly by the weights this time of year,” Rawiller said “All the maidens and two and three-year-olds are on 54kg. It cuts me out of half the races each meeting.

“I’ve made some good contacts, it was a matter of coming, putting my toe in the water and seeing if I enjoyed it and I have.”

Rawiller said he would consider returning to ride in Japan, but at a different time of the year. He noted that Craig Williams’ stay in Japan - end of April through end of June - was perfect timing.
