BlackBook - Saturday, 2 April 2022

Please see below for our #BlackBook runner comments for Saturday, 2 April 2022. The runner's highlighted are our #BlackBook runners (the key runners of focus), while those included in the 'other' section of each race are additional runner's that have jumped out well enough to be worth noting. Our figures and benchmark ratings are from PuntingForm.

BENDIGO - Race 3


Nick Ryan’s 2yo gelding, #3 DON’T CHANGE, was super late and past the line in Heat 9 on Mar 25, although this was the slowest heat of the morning. The son of Holler had a previous Mar 11 jump out, which was probably only fair but he looked to take a stack of improvement coming into this bit of work.

#4 FIELD OF FLUTES won Heat 1 on Mar 21 in the fastest time of the morning, as the 2yo colt led from start to finish to win in an impressive display. A $140k at the 2021 MM Gold Coast Yearling sales, the son of Deep Field was 2nd in a previous jump out on Mar 9 and on the back of this work here, he can go well on debut.

BENDIGO - Race 4


#4 SIMPLY OPTIMISTIC (blue) led from start to finish to win Heat 5 on Mar 28, holding off SHILO LASS (yellow) with a big gap back to 3rd.


Randwick, Race 1 - #9 ASTERIA (9)

Dec 7 (Randwick) - very slick work from the 2yo Capitalist filly who’s a full-sister to the talented Profiteer - showed much of the same traits of her brother, with a stack of early speed to lead and was way too speedy for them throughout the 740m as she kicked away to win by 3.57L and a further 3.22L back to 3rd - only her first trial too, potentially on a Magic Millions path having been a $375k purchase from the 2021 MM sales.

Mar 18 (Randwick - Soft7) - fastest of the 3x 1050m 2yo trials - jumped beautifully, went straight to the front along the rail but did over do it with the head everywhere and mouth open as she wanted to get on with it - she kicked away around the bend to open up a huge margin where they then made ground on her late, although the horse making ground on her was Sheeza Belter who’s coming off a 6-week let up (race fitness) having had 3x starts for 2x 1st and a 2nd - she wouldn’t want it any further, but nice bit of work regardless.

Goulburn, Race 6 - #2 HERB (1)

Feb 9 (Kembla Grange) - half brother to Heyington Station ($133k prize money) - clocked 46.52s for the 790m here, only 0.06s off the quickest time of the morning but did clock the fastest L600m of the morning - was sort of slow away from the inside but pushed up from the inside draw to lead along the rail and had a kick around the corner, jockey even had a look between her legs before giving a slight push where he kicked away again and won by 5.5L - super first trial, can’t ask for much more.

*He has since had a trial on the synthetic on Feb 28 when 2nd to Sliders (since 6th BM64) with Shohei in 3rd (since 2nd MDN) as well as a trial at Goulburn on Mar 18 on the Heavy9 track where he won.*
