CRANBOURNE - 1 August 2022
A third jump out for BEWS now, taking out Heat 7 on Aug 1 over 800m where the 3yo colt sat off the leader in the stakes placed Wee Nessy before extending away late over the concluding stages with ease. It’ll be hard to match up and measure the times as there aren’t many jump outs out the back at Cranbourne, but he's listed as clocking 49.84s being the second fastest time of the morning behind Coolangatta. We mentioned him after his Jul 11 jump out win ahead of Berry Bubbly, who then ran 5th on Saturday at Moonee Valley in a HCP race, having previously finished 6th in an official trial on Jul 4 but he was always out the back. He’s shown lovely improvement between his trials and jump outs, and as a $400k I Am Invincible colt from the 2021 MM Gold Coast Yearling Sale, he looks a colt with a bit of talent.
BALLARAT - 2 August 2022
* it was the typical McEvoy show at Ballarat, winning 6x (60%) of the 10x jump outs at this meeting. *
REDZOUST took out Heat 2 on Aug 2 over the 1100m in nice time, clocking 1:06.17s which was only slightly slower than star stablemate Xtravagant Star’s time of 1:06.13s. The now-3yo colt recorded a big victory when leading from start to finish, opening up a huge in the straight with ease as he dropped those sitting off him very comfortably. Treading carefully though as the stable often win these jump outs just by leading from start to finish.
Monitor LUNAR MODULE, with the un-raced 3yo filly hard held in 2nd place in Heat 6 on Aug 2 behind French Fields where they clocked the second fastest time of the morning. It was a typical Archie Alexander first jump out where he rides them quiet while hard held - look for a second jump out where she’ll be pushed out to really bring her on for the debut.
Massive win by SHOURI LAD, taking out Heat 8 on Aug 2 with the 4yo gelding leading from start to finish as he clocked the fastest 850m time of the morning in the process at 50.86s (vs the days average of 51.83s). He was poor in his debut preparation, his best finish being a 5th when beaten by 2.7L second up. We’ll look for another jump out prior to resuming, but this was an encouraging improvement and he’ll likely be a big price that we can spec.
PAKENHAM - 2 & 3 August 2022
PLEASE NOTE: 4x Heats were ran on Tuesday (Aug 2) while 5x Heats were ran on Wednesday (Aug 3) as they were delayed due to the fall of Michael Walker.
WALTZ ON BY on flying at the jump outs ahead of her return. We mentioned her after her Jul 12 win over 750m where she led throughout and opened up a big margin over the final ~200m. She backed that up with a win in Heat 1 on Aug 3 over the 750m, cruising on speed throughout behind Squizzy Mizzy (who won a BM58 by 1.5L only 5-weeks ago) before then showing that superb turn of foot to get past her with ease while Millane was ridden out in 3rd and couldn’t keep up. She clocked 43.50s, which was 1.65s quicker than the next quickest time on the day and the second fastest time we have recorded for the 750m at Pakenham (Synthetic), behind only Oxley Road over 90x jump outs. If she heads to a mid-week maiden to get that maiden victory out of the way, she’ll be very awfully hard to beat. She’s very talented and jump outs could not have been any better ahead of her resumption. She’s $26 for the Thousand Guienas, a race her mum won…
PENSHURST - 4 August 2022
Another jump out win for MATAO MA, taking out Heat 3 on Aug 4 over the 1000m in the second fastest time of the morning. We’ve already mentioned him twice so no need to dive too much into him again, but we’ll certainly be following him into his first up run.
Mick Price & Michael Kent could unveil another nice 3yo colt in BENCOOLEN. The $190k son of Written Tycoon showed tremendous to lead Heat 4 on Aug 4 with ease before giving the field a slip at the top of the straight and opening up a big margin, holding that to the line. He was forced to take a sit off the pace in his first jump out on Jul 14, coming over the top of them late to win ahead of Ivory’s Delight (since 1st MDN) and Zephatino (since 5th MDN). He led his next jump out on Jul 25 where he went the line alongside the 77-rated Duchess, which is certainly jump out form that will hold up in most maidens. No surprise to see him nominated for the Caulfield Guineas, there’s a big watch on this colt for his debut.
I COULD DO BETTER looks like he he couldn’t be doing better ahead of his resumption for his new stable. Following a super jump out on Jul 14 where he closed super from the back to win, the 7yo gelding sat closer to the speed throughout Heat 6 on Aug 4 where he then put a huge gap on them in the straight to record a big victory. His first up record reads 5:3-0-0, so he’s a big watch first up for Maddie Raymond on the back of these jump outs.
RANDWICK - 2 August 2022
EBHAAR was super again, backing up her 785m trial win on Jul 18 with a big 3.23L win in Trial 3 on Aug 2, this time over 1050m while clocking the third fastest time of the morning at 1:03.53s (vs days average of 1:04.16s). Super impressive.
HEADWALL looks a nice horse. He won impressively over 900m on debut a month ago, so he had some race fitness but the way in which he closed into 2nd place in Trial 4 on Aug 2 over 1050m was super impressive, making ground on the ridden out Group 3 winning gelding in Tiger Legend - they clocked the second fastest time of the morning in the process too. He’ll win some more races in his career, sooner rather than later as well.
WARWICK FARM - 5 August 2022
This was a superb first trial for PEREILLE. The 3yo Fastnet Rock colt drifted to the back of the field in the early stages on Trial 9 on Aug 5, cruising throughout before making his run around the field as he approached the straight, showing super closing speed down the middle of the track under no pressure from Zac Lloyd. He finished 5th, but he was a clear eye catcher here with the heat being ran over 813m and the winner clocking the third fastest time of the morning. Big watch.
CHOLANTE looks to have come back in superb order. She was quietly ridden in her first trial on Jul 22 over the 740m, but it was her work in Trial 10 on Aug 5 that really caught the eye. She was away beautifully from the wide barrier, but they elected to drop back to a clear last. Coming into the straight, she was searching for the gaps, being forced to come wide off heels and showed a tremendous late turn of foot to just miss a placing. It was her work past the line that was the most impressive though as she just kept going on with it. She was disappointing on debut at Wyong in a Listed race when 10th of 12, but looks to have returned in nice order ahead of her second career preparation.
