Weekly Review - February 13 to February 19

CRANBOURNE - 13 February 2023


Another nice jump out win from MISS SUBTLY, winning Heat 8 on Feb 13 quite comfortably as she travelled beautifully on speed and did it all under her own steam. We mentioned her following her Jan 30 jump out and also mentioned her form that has 4x 2nd’s from 4x starts having run into some smart ones in all of them including Manhattan Thunder (then ran 4th at Caulfield behind Boogie Dancer), Nanagui (won Listed race next start), Clarity (since 2nd in BM78) and Sweetened. She’s certainly got a maiden win in her and w’ve got to keep an eye on where she goes first up this prep.


ZURI MISS was having her first jump out in Heat 6 on Feb 13, jumping slowly as she looked quite inexperience and green. She caught the eye in the straight when she tacked onto the rear of the field and did her best work late, strong over the concluding stages. She might have some ability, which we’ll find out in her next jump out and see if she can put it all together.

Liked the return of IMPENDING LINK who was having his first jump out this preparation in Heat 8 on Feb 13, closing nicely from the middle of the pack to finish 4th. The son of Impending was a $50k Magic Millions purchase and is one to keep an eye on into another jump out.

Nice return from CELESTIAL HARBOUR following her debut prep that saw her finish 2nd in her only run that prep. She took out Heat 10 on Feb 13 quite comfortably but didn’t break any records on the clock. She’ll have another bit of work before her first up run so we’ll keep an eye out for that.

FREE WILLED has made her way to the Alderson yard following two NZ trials on Nov 3 and Dec 6. This 3yo Tivaci filly made her Aus debut in Heat 10 on Feb 13, sitting handy before being niggled and showing good potential late. It’ll be worth following her into her next jump out to see whether she can win first up or how much improvement she has to come considering she has had the three jump outs and trials in ~3 months.

ILLATIVE was back at the jump outs following an 11-week let up, continuing her undefeated streak at the jump outs with a win in Heat 11 on Feb 13 in the second fastest time of the morning ahead of a fast finishing Veecee. A younger sibling to Dragon Leap and Illation, there is no shortage of talent in this 2yo filly’s family.

ENZO is another NZ import having had the three NZ trials before making his way to Price & Kent here in Aus, those coming on Aug 4 (2nd), Aug 16 (2nd) and Sep 6 (1st). This 3yo Per Incanto gelding was making his debut at the Aus jump outs in Heat 12 on Feb 13 and he did it well, not being asked for much of an effort and poking through late under what looked to be easy riding. One to follow.

Richard Laming paid $260k for the un-named Toronado filly, TORONADO x MISS ECLIPSE, and he’ll be hoping she can replicate her win in Heat 15 on Feb 13 at her debut. She cruised out the back of the field in the first half of the jump out before getting to the middle of the track in the straight where she was put under pressure and responded, getting over the top of the leaders to win with a bit in hand. This was her third jump out, so this bit of work over 1000m will top her off for her debut.

NORWEGIAN JOY is the younger brother of Norwegian Bliss with three 1200m trials and jump outs under his belt now, the first two in Sydney when with Robert Quinn and the latest in Heat 16 on Feb 13 where he won, going to the line alongside Nonconformist which is very good form for a 3yo maiden. He’ll likely head to a 1400m maiden on debut and likely gets out even further.

COLAC - 13 February 2023


Nice return by the now-gelded TOUCH OF NAVY, siting out the back in Heat 4 on Feb 13 alongside Darci’s Debut and coming home down the outside with that galloper, making ground on the undefeated Kaygeebee who was leading throughout. It’s only his first JO back so keep an eye out for another bit of work.

NAVAL ENVOY has always been good at the jump outs and his win in Heat 11 on Feb 13 was no different, travelling really strongly on the speed before and cruising to the line late to record a soft win over the 1000m, clocking 58.90s in the process as the fastest time of the morning. Lovely return jump out.

PAKENHAM - 14 February 2023

TATURA - 15 February 2023


LORD DOMINO was an impressive winner of Heat 3 on Feb 15, siting outside the leader and closing really nicely late to the line over the 1100m. He has a first up record of 4:1-3-0, so look for another jump out prior to that first up run where we’d expect him to go well.

Now with Charles Casssar, SIDE BET has trotted in Heat 17 on Feb 15, going straight to the front and that was pretty much the end of it.

Our boy GULF OF GUINEA was good again, winning Heat 23 on Feb 15 quite impressively… really hoping he shows this talent on raceday cause he looks to be flying ahead of his return!

MORNINGTON - 15 February 2023


A third jump out now for MAGARTEN and it was much of the same, winning Heat 4 on Feb 15 but although against 2yo’s, he travelled nicely in behind the speed before he got a gap along the fence and extended nicely to and through the line over the 900m. We mentioned him following a Feb 6 official trial over 990m when he won ahead of Muramasa and also noted his quiet Jan 25 jump out when 2nd to Overhymn (ran 3rd first up), all of which were nice bits of work and he’s certainly had a nice turn of foot on show in all of his jump outs. His form isn’t great and he did start $19 and $31 in his only two career starts, so we might get a nice price first up but regardless, we’re keen to follow him in.

WATCHLIST This was a lovely return from TRANSCELTIC in Heat 6 on Feb 15, travelling wide and on speed throughout before closing really nicely late to win over the 900m in the fastest time of the morning. It’s only his first jump out and he is a 3-start maiden with no career placings, but he’s a 3yo and that first prep may have done him a world of good so keep an eye on another jump out before the first up run.

We’ve mentioned BLUE CHIP GIRL a few times and while she’s shown talent in most of her jump outs, her official trial on Feb 6 wasn’t great, which would explain why she was back at the jump outs again in Heat 7 on Feb 15 but her start was worse than horrible despite being able to muster speed and close nicely under minimal pressure to finish 2nd, albeit in the clear slowest time of the morning too. Slightly worried, especially with her start in this heat so she’s one to keep an eye on but not a must bet.

BALLARAT - 16 February 2023


Quite a nice bit of work from PSYCHO STAR in Heat 4 on Feb 16, travelling strongly out wide as she finished 3rd, but was only 0.5L off the winner in Cadboll who clocked a nice 49.70s for the 850m. Her first jump out on Feb 6 at Kyneton was even better, cruising into 2nd place with absolute ease in a super bit of work too. The 4yo mare is a 7-start maiden that has always been there abouts without winning, but she can go one better this prep on the back of her work here at the jump outs.

There will be some attention on the debut of BEEN OUR ANGEL having won a Feb 9 jump out in quick time as well as bolting in an 850m jump out here in Heat 6 on Feb 16, but this was in slow time albeit doing it with ease. This 2yo colt is a son of Harry Angel having been a previous $200k purchase from the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sales.

FLEMINGTON - 17 February 2023

No secret that we’re a fan of STARBURY. We were keen to bet into him at Bendigo on Saturday, but he’s elected to have a second jump out instead (following his Feb 3 jump out) before finally making his debut, his sixth career jump out, which we don’t mind as we can now be confident he’ll be forward enough on debut and on the back of his work in Heat 4 on Feb 17, he should also be hard to beat. He travelled nicely in behind the speed alongside Bandersnatch throughout this heat, a galloper he hit the line alongside and actually looked like he was travelling better than as he made up good ground on the leaders in King Tommy (won a BM58 by 2.8L only 2 weeks ago) and Lumber Punk (ran 2nd in a BM70 only 3 weeks ago). If he had more room late, think he would’ve gone past these gallopers, as shown by his work through the line where he was making ground despite Tom Prebble taking it really easy on him and not to mention, they clocked the fastest time of the morning too. If he goes to a country maiden, he’ll win.


SQUEAK has been super at the jump outs. He was forced to take a sit in his first bit of work on Feb 3, which he didn’t love but did finish off strongly alongside Starbury who’s one we have a big opinion of. This was similar again in Heat 10 on Feb 17, the 4yo gelding forced to drop back to the rear of the field and take a sit, overracing all through the early stages as a result. Once they got to the straight, he waited patiently for the gap and when it did appear late, he went bang and closed off superbly through and past the line. He’s a 3-start maiden with no career placings from his single preparation, but he looks to have come back improved this prep. Big watch first up.


A couple of solid jump outs now for MASSIRA, the first on Feb 3 when finishing alongside Princess Duhallow (since __ at Flemington) and the latest a slick all the way win in Heat 8 on Feb 17 in the third fastest time of the morning. The 2yo son of I Am Invincible wasted no time as he showed some lovely early speed, taking up the lead and cruising to the line as Blake Shinn was very easy on him throughout. He was even extending away late and was good past the line. He’s a speedy colt.

As we mentioned after VALSPAR’s jump out on Feb 10, we can probably ignore his debut run as a 2yo colt in the Nursery at Randwick and also forgive his only run last prep as a gelding on a Heavy9 track at Rosehill - he was immediately spelled following both of these runs. He stepped out again in Heat 10 on Feb 17, ridden out late by D Oliver as he really attacked the line. He can go well first up this prep on a good track.
