Weekly Review - January 3 to January 9
CRANBOURNE - 4 January 2022
MADAME DU GAST was accepted for a race at Sandown on Wednesday but was scratched, electing to jump out instead and putting together an impressive bit of work to win Heat 4 on Jan 4 by a couple of lengths. We mentioned this 3yo filly after a nice first jump out back on Dec 20, and this is the bit of work we wanted (and needed) to see to convince us that she does have some talent. If she goes to a country maiden on debut, she’s a big watch.
BEAUKATI has A LOT of speed, so it was no surprise to see her take out Heat 6 on Jan 4 over the 800m in the clear fastest time of the morning. Her worry is that she can’t seem to run out 1000m, but she’ll certainly look the winner at some stage. She’ll be best suited in a country maiden at a tight turning track with a low barrier.
You won’t see too many easier jump out wins than BEAU NIGHT’s in Heat 8 on Jan 4 over the 1000m. He’s had a few jump outs now, but was gelded heading into this prep and after a quiet Dec 20 jump out when 8th, the 3yo looked to be classes above this lot although, the time was slow-ish.
ECHUCA - 4 January 2022
SEVEN’O’KEVIN recorded a really nice all the way win in Heat 2 on Jan 4 ahead of a race-fit Burning The Clock where he was quietly ridden throughout with the jockey even having a look over the shoulder at the 200m mark before pulling him up late. He had a jump out 5 weeks ago on Nov 30 when 2nd to In Due Time, who has since won a Wangaratta MDN by 2.8L, which is good jump out form. Keep an eye out for a country maiden on debut, hopefully he’s a nice price to have a spec.
SUNSET LADY was a Twitter star performer for us prior to her debut but she was poor, despite starting $6 and only going down by 2.2L. Now changing trainers to Adam O’Neill, the 4yo mare won her return jump out in Heat 4 on Jan 4 but the time was quite slow for the morning and overall. Happy to keep her in mind but not one we’ll be following or backing with much confidence as she seems to be a track work star early in her career.
Can’t win jump outs any more impressively than MAWKEB’s win in Heat 10 on Jan 4 over the 900m. The un-raced 3yo filly was away well but dropped back to near last while travelling 2-3 wide throughout. She was a good 3-4L off the leaders throughout but did her best work in the straight, responding to a slight push to explode down the middle of the track to win by several lengths in slick time for the morning too. Only her first jump out this preparation, so keen to see another bit of work (maybe against better opposition) to get a real gauge on her ability. On this bit of work though, looks to be some talent.
PROOINGA fought off the other leader to kick away and record a big win in Heat 11 on Jan 4 in the clear fastest time of the morning. He was ridden out, but looked to respond to the riding and liked that he recorded nice time and defeated a previous winner in Serenaur. Only his first jump out back, so one to watch.
BALLARAT (BURRUMBEET) - 4 January 2022
Watch on DREAM INHERIT, who finished 3rd in Heat 6 on Jan 4 being her first jump out this preparation alongside better than maiden grade horses in True Impact and California Sunset. Want to see another bit of work but this was nice as she was hard held throughout the 1000m.
ILOVEROSES has absolutely bolted in Heat 7 on Jan 4. The un-raced 3yo filly went straight to the front and was way too speedy, never giving anything else a chance. She had a pair of jump outs back in June/July but didn’t get to the races, this being her first jump out back and based on this, she’s one to definitely follow. She recorded nice time too.
HALCYON EAST kicked away late to win Heat 9 on Jan 4 after leading throughout, recording a very slick 59.25s for the 1000m which was the fastest time of the morning. His first jump out back this preparation was iffy, so not completely convinced he’s travelling well enough to win first up but certainly one to keep in mind.
MORNINGTON - 5 January 2022
ALL SHE WROTE was a $3 second favourite on debut but was held up for pretty much the whole straight and never got a chance to run. She looks to have that get back and run on pattern though, which might be a little tricky. She was always at the back in a Dec 22 jump out and then was wide and out the back in Heat 5 on Jan 5, but was way too classy late as she cruised up the outside to win. No doubt she has talent, she’s just going to need a bit of luck in running but if she gets it, she won’t be a maiden for long.
CONSTANTINOU was only overran late by Midships in Heat 1 on Jan 5, leading throughout over the 1000m following a 3rd placing in a Dec 22 700m jump out. The 5yo mare looks to move well enough to go well on debut and is one to watch.
STARZ BARWON ran the meeting’s fastest L800/600/400m and second fastest L200m (winner ran the fastest) on debut with a big 2.5L gap to 3rd. The 3yo gelding hasn’t been seen since, returning in Heat 6 on Jan 5 where he was very quietly ridden and cruised to the line in 3rd place, looking to move really well in the process. Watching for another jump out as we think he has the talent to win a maiden.
PAKENHAM - 5 January 2022
SARTORIAL SPLENDOR clocked the clear fastest 800m time of the morning, winning Heat 4 on Jan 5 by a massive margin in 47.26s, a massive 1.72s quicker than the next quickest heat of the morning.
Wouldn’t surprise to see DICKENSIAN head to the races now as it seems to be the prep’s Moody goes with - jump out win, spell, one jump out win and then to the races. The 3yo gelding took out Heat 8 on Jan 5, ridden out late but responded well to the riding as he extended away past the line, clocking above average time for the morning in the process.
RAMPANT LION a very slick and big win in Heat 9 on Jan 5 in nice time. He’s an expensive colt, so no doubt he’ll be targeting a Blue Diamond or one of the other big 2YO races.
Two 2yo colts worth keeping in mind for their debut following two jump out wins. The Moody colt WATERWORLD was ridden out late to win Heat 10 on Jan 5 in the third fastest time of the morning at 49.15s while the Stokes colt TYPICAL YOU cruised to win Heat 11 on Jan 5, but clocked a slow time of 51.29s.
TERANG - 5 January 2022
Mentioned after a smart Dec 14 jump out win in the fastest time of the morning, ENGLISH RIVIERA was back at it again with a big win in Heat 3 on Jan 5 while again clocking a really slick 800m time, the second fastest of the morning and only 0.1s off the fastest. The 2yo filly jumped from the widest barrier and stuck wide, travelling under a hold until the 300m mark when she was given a push and put up lengths on the field in a matter of seconds. This was a smart win and she’s a smart filly. Expect her to be going well on debut.
THE BIG HEIST put together another nice jump out to back up his Dec 21 (2nd) jump out behind Hint Of Mint, extending away late when given a push to win Heat 12 on Jan 5 relatively easy in the end. As mentioned previously, the 3yo gelding is solely owned by Mick Price and Michael Kent, so suspect they have a big enough opinion of him to keep ownership. He looks talented and is one to follow into his debut.
THE GARDEN was an easy winner of Heat 5 on Jan 5, cruising to the line over 800m in his return jump out.
The half-brother of Elite Street, ELITE ICON, was a previous feature of our review back as a late 2yo on Apr 27 and May 13. He didn’t make it to the races though, given more time before returning to win two jump outs now. He led from start to finish to win a Dec 23 jump out in his return, prior to winning Heat 6 on Jan 5 in the fastest 800m time of the morning where he was pushed out late. He hasn’t been a standout, but there his jump outs are certainly good enough to go well on debut.
The smart 3yo colt RED HAWK was back, winning Heat 7 on Jan 5 with ease.
STAY IN TOUCH didn’t look out of place as she went to the line on the inside of the talented Royal Dress in Heat 8 on Jan 5 while ahead of stablemate Ocean’s Jen. The un-raced 4yo mare had a previous jump out that was quiet, so this was a more encouraging bit of work.
SONGAA got to the outside of the track and found clear air late before exploding to the led and record a comfortable 4L+ win in Heat 10 on Jan 5. He travelled a lot better than the rest of the field who were mostly all pushed out and not responded nearly as much. The 3yo colt’s previous two jump outs have been a little inconclusive, but this was a really nice bit of work so he’s certainly one to follow into his debut.
TUVALU put together another impressive jump out, taking out Heat 14 on Jan 5 over the 1000m with ease.
