Please see below for our #BlackBook runner comments for Sunday, 1 August 2021. 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. All NSW #BlackBook runners are 'other' runners.
SANDOWN - Race 2
Our debut #BlackBook runner, CECIL STREET LAD, goes around here second up and looks like he should be going close again.
SANDOWN - Race 3
Nice effort by #5 INVINCIBLE JET to match motors with the smart Zou Dancer in Heat 14 on Jul 9 as they gapped 3rd and clocked the fastest grass jump out of the morning, being the only sub-50s time. The 3yo gelding comes down to VIC after a big 4.8L maiden win last start, he can go on with it down here on the back of this work.
KEMBLA GRANGE - Race 3
#9 CIRCLING (5) - Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou
Jul 2 (Canterbury H10) - did a good job to be within 1L in 2nd - was wide and dropped back before improving wide around the bend - was given a squeeze at the top of the straight and then just cruised to the line out very wide - nice bit of work for a first trial and worth watching.
KEMBLA GRANGE - Race 5
#18 MIA ZOI (12) - Mark Newnham
Jul 6 (Warwick Farm) - defeated Bullet Hero (since 3rd MDN).
Jul 23 (Warwick Farm) - bolted in here by 13.5L - went straight to the front and never looked like being caught - did run a nice time too that was better than Academy in Heat 10 who won by 10L and was pushed out - going to be a matter of catch her if you can first up - will back if not too short.
