Benedetta is back in Jason Warren's Mornington stable as preparations ramp up for the Oakleigh Plate.

The daughter of Hellbent was turned out after her fourth placing in the $1 million Silver Eagle (1300m) at Rosehill but after several weeks in the paddock, she had three weeks of pre-training at Widden Stud's Victorian base before returning to Warren.

"She had a good couple of weeks of and trot and cantering, so now we're into her," Warren said.

"She had a good amount of condition on her and looks good."

Benedetta has been shielded from Group 1 racing with only two of her 10 starts coming at Group level.

The biggest of her six wins came in last year's Group 3 Cockram Stakes (1200m), while she also finished third in the Group 2 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m).

This campaign will be about giving Benedetta the chance to make an impression at the highest level with the $600,000 Sangster Stakes (1200m) in Adelaide the other Group 1 that Warren has in mind for her.

"The Sangster in Adelaide is probably her race but, in saying that, we've got to earn our place in the race," Warren said.

"But I do like the idea of a fast-run Oakleigh Plate with no weight on her back."

Carrying a $750,000 purse, the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate will be run at Caulfield on February 24.

An 1100m scamper, it is the middle leg of Melbourne's autumn sprint treble.

The Sangster Stakes will be run at Morphettville on May 4.
