Weekly Review - July 4 to July 10
CRANBOURNE - 4 July 2022
Mick Price looks to have a nice one in CADAZIO, kicking away over the concluding stages to win Heat 18 on Jul 4 over the 990m in the fastest time of the morning. The 2yo Tarzino gelding showed lovely gate speed to lead under Jye McNeil, cruising while those behind him were pushed out. He was then asked to extend late and put a space on the field in a matter of strides, winning by 2.75L with ease. This was his third bit of work, finishing 3rd in a Jun 14 jump out over 1000m, where he was out the back and ridden out late to close well, prior to winning a Jun 20 jump out over 1000m as well, running past I’m Thunderstruck’s full brother in Struck Twice easily, that runner since running 3rd on debut over 1400m. He moves super and has put together three nice jump outs now to suggest he’ll go well on debut. Big watch.
Loved the work of FAR ENOUGH after his Jun 22 jump out win and loved his work in Heat 1 on Jul 4 when 2nd to Invincible Jet (resuming off a 10-week let up) who clocked the fastest time of the morning at 46.65s (vs days average of 47.39s). In 3rd place was Veranskova, who he had covered by 2L quite comfortably and was going on with it past the line. Hoping he resumes in a BM58 to get an easy kill.
The Star Witness colt, FAST WITNESS was clearly the slowest away early in Heat 6 on Jul 4, having to take a sit in behind the speed along the rail where he then ran into plenty of traffic. He still did a super job over the closing stages to change his course of run a few times under the guidance of Jye McNeil yet still close well once he got off heels and into clear air. He He handled the Heavy track well here and in his prior jump out on Jun 14 when 2nd to Sollozzo and looks to be a nice moving colt with nice closing speed.
Giga Kick looked like he was going to kick away and win Heat 8 on Jul 4 comfortably but the un-raced STREET CONQUEROR kicked up late to challenge him. They clocked the second fastest time of the morning in the process too, only 0.02s off the fastest of the day where they clocked 46.67s (vs days average of 47.39s). The 2yo Street Boss gelding is a lovely mover, winning a previous Jun 14 jump out well and being a $350k purchase from the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale, there will certainly be some nice expectations of this gelding.
SIR KALAHAD sprinted away from the talented and speedy Ancestry with ease to win Heat 13 on Jul 4. He’s been quite disappointing this prep, beating home only the 1x runner in his two runs at BM84 level so far. He’s now 78-rated and likely needs to head to a 1200m BM78 third up now to be a betting proposition. He’s a bit hard to trust, but if we get a nice price on the back of this trial, he’s worth a spec.
LULU DARLING is travelling well on the track, taking out Heat 14 on Jul 4 over 990m in the third fastest time of the morning, handling the Heavy8 track well following her synthetic win over 800m on Jun 28. She hasn’t quite reached the heights of her debut prep where she won on debut before finish 3rd at Caulfield in a 3YO Handicap race, so it’ll be interesting to see where she heads third up now. Being 61-rated, she would be best suited in a CL1 or a BM58 with a high weight where we’d be happy to follow her.
This was smart by PERI PERI RICH, the 4yo mare coming up the rail over 990m in Heat 19 on Jul 4 to win in the second fastest time of the morning with ease. She was a very impressive last start MDN winner by 3.75L (beating 3rd by 6.75L) where she clocked 58.52s that was quicker than the BM58 (58.84s) later in the day. She’s a talented mare that can go on with it now.
FRENCH EMPEROR recorded a ridiculous win in Heat 22 on Jul 4 over the 1190m, winning by 15L+ in the fastest time of the morning. He won a Jun 20 jump out over 1000m easy as well and he’s deadset flying ahead of his resumption for the new Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr stable down in VIC. First up he’s 2: 1-0-1 and a big watch first up here.
WANGARATTA - 4 July 2022
PAKENHAM - 5 July 2022
ST ARNAUD - 7 July 2022
We can only see the last 100m-200m or so due to the fog, which makes it very difficult to assess these runners in Heats 2 to 9.
PORT LOUIS is certainly back in good order as a gelding. He went one better than his 2nd in a jump out on Jun 22, winning Heat 13 on Jul 7 over the 900m again where he was clearly a class above. As mentioned after his first jump out, he’s 76-rated with very good form on the board so if he heads to a maiden first up to get it out of the way, it’ll be very interesting to see if the gelding finally switches him on. Expect him to be short.
FLEMINGTON - 8 July 2022
RACKERMANN’s work past the line in his Jul 1 jump out caught the eye having been hard held out the back when technically finishing last. The 2yo gelding took out Heat 6 on Jul 8, again showing lovely closing speed but he was given more of a push late and looked to respond the riding. He clocked nice time for the morning too, winning in 47.88s vs the days average of 48.29s. He’s well bred, being by Impending out of Catechuchu, a talented mare that won multiple Group 3’s over 1400m and 1600m and was Group 2 placed over 1600m. Like the way he moves, keen to follow into a debut.
SANDY PRINCE took out Heat 5 on Jul 8 in the fastest time of the morning, leading from start to finish along the rail under a strong hold.
Becoming a broken record now, but KING TOMMY won another jump out, taking out Heat 7 on Jul 8 to back up last weeks Jul 1 win and his previous 2x wins at the start of June. He’s a clear jump and run horse, clearly the quickest away here and wanting to go on with it early as he was held back and throwing his head around. He was put under pressure late here, looking to respond in encouraging signs. Treading carefully, but he’ll likely look the winner at some stage first up.
WARWICK FARM - 6 July 2022
These times are based on the past 189x Trials over 740m and 44x Trials over 1175m at Warwick Farm on the Poly Track.
Going to the line alongside Snitcat (who is a 5-start maiden but has some super form including a 3rd in the MM 2YO Classic behind Coolangatta) was LOMANDRA, a 2yo filly having her first trial this preparation that was a $900k Inglis Australian Easter Yearling purchase being by Not A Single Doubt and a half-sister to Blue Diamond winner Tagaloa. Have to have her on our watch list, she moved beautifully here albeit over only 740m.
RENOSU is travelling super ahead of his return. He led and won a Jun 21 trial over 800m under a ridiculous hold, clocking 48.85s which was slower than the days average of 48.16s. He did similar in Heat 8 on Jul 6, going forward and leading from start to finish again under a strong hold to win by 2.29L in 44.74s, slightly slower than the days average of 44.47s. He hasn’t been let go yet and the trials were over only 800m and 740m, but he cant have won much more impressively and he’s one worth following first up.
Vaderzan clocked the fastest 740m time of the morning in his win of Heat 11 on Jul 6, but we couldn’t keep our eyes off CARDONE who closed superbly into 2nd place and was even with the winner past the post. He did similar in a Jun 20, his work late and past the line was tremendous. The son of Written Tycoon was a $220k purchase from the 2021 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale and looks talented.
SHADES OF ROSE was a $3.10 favourite at Rosehill on Saturday but the saddle shifted that resulted in her bucking and she took no part in the race. Forced to go back to the trials before heading back to the track, she won Heat 13 on Jul 6 over the 740m with absolute ease. As mentioned previously, she won her latest Jun 20 trial prior to that 1UP run in the fastest 900m time of the morning in a big ~5L win. She was undefeated prior to Saturdays mishap and it certainly wouldn’t shock to see her make up for that in her next start and go 4 from 5.
RANDWICK - 8 July 2022
HULM was slowly away in Heat 14 on Jul 8 but was able to muster speed to push up along the rail and cruise throughout the heat, finishing a close 2nd and pretty much matching motors with the Group 2 placed Lady Laguna while he went on with it past the line as well. This was only the first trial for this 2yo colt, so plenty of improvement still to come. One to follow.
SPIRITCHASER took out Heat 18 on Jul 8, clocking the fastest 780m time of the morning at 45.61s while defeating past winners in Mumbai Jewel and Sweet Ride. The 2yo filly jumped smartly, travelling on speed throughout the heat and going to the line under a hold, going on with it past the line alongside Mumbai Jewel, a Group 3 placed filly herself. This is her first trial this prep, but her third career trial having had two trials back in January for a win ahead of subsequent Group 1 winner She’s Extreme and a 3rd behind subsequent Group 2 winner Seven Veils. A filly to monitor.
