Please see below for our #BlackBook runner comments for Wednesday, 1 September 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.
SANDOWN - Race 1
#10 PROWLING (11) - G Eurell
PROWLING looked to move nice in only his first jump out this preparation. The gelding travelled lovely under a hold as he cruised to a win in Heat 16 on Aug 2. He was never asked for an effort but was pulling away late as he hit the line comfortably. He’s out of the mare Great Dame who only had 4 career starts for 2x wins and a 4L 4th in the Group 3 Vanity. Keeping a very close eye on him.
PROWLING backed up his Aug 2 win with another nice win, this time stepping out over 1000m in Heat 15 on Aug 16. He jumped well and travelled super on speed before he dropped the leader (who was ridden out and couldn’t keep up) and extended away to record a nice victory. He looked to do it effortlessly. He is a half-brother to the smart mare Great Duchess and looks like he might have similar talent. Must follow.
The work of #2 BEAGLE past the line was super, attacking the line with a stack of pace to be in front past the line in Heat 13 on Aug 20. A beaten $2.10 favourite on debut, suspect he was tipped out and given a let up in preparation for a spring attack.
