While we (The Jump Outs) focus on the Victorian trials and jump outs, we have partnered with Dean Watling (@DeanWatling) to conduct a review of the NSW Trials each week and bring us his stand out performers. Dean is the form analyst behind The Barrier Attendant, a trial-focused tips and staking service with proven profitable results.
Please see below for Dean's top performers from the NSW Trials for the week August 16 to August 22:
LIGHTLY RACED / MAIDEN'S
RUINART - John O’Shea (James Mcdonald) Aug 20 (Randwick 1045m) - always had a nice opinion of this Hallowed Crown filly. It came all too soon for her in her debut prep. She has since been spelled and has come back well. She has had the two trials now and I really like that O’Shea has pushed her out to the 1045m in her last trial, asked her to close off with intent. Clicked up through her gears impressively.
ARTHUR FRANCIS - John O’Shea (Regan Bayliss) Aug 20 (Randwick 1045m) - another O’Shea runner I had a solid opinion on at 2, he has been gelded now as a 3yo and looks to have really switched on and matured. He has had the two trials back now and the latest over the 1045m was impressive. He sat relaxed off the speed and unleashed his powerful turn of foot to take out the trial effortlessly.
KA BLING - Peter and Paul Snowden (Tommy Berry) Aug 20 (Randwick 1045m) - a sharp trial by the 3yo Capitalist gelding. He trucked along behind the speed in his first trial back this prep before pulling out under a hold and finding the line well. Loved his work past the post, plenty of horse left under jockey Tommy Berry.
OTHER STAND OUTS
WAIHAHA FALLS (NZ) - John O’Shea (James Mcdonald) Aug 20 (Randwick 1045m) - two lovely trials back this prep by the 3yo son of Scared Falls. He sat off the speed and closed off to the line with his long stride, he got very warm past the post and showed good signs he has returned well.
