Weekly Review - June 26 to July 2

CRANBOURNE - 26 June 2023

Big fan of the Maher & Eustace trained Zoustar filly in GOLDEN ESTRELLA. This 3yo filly caught our eye in her Jun 12 jump out she travelled in behind the speed with not much room to go until very late over the final 100m or so when she came back to the inside and closed quite nicely. Stepping up to 1000m in Heat 17 on Jun 26, she was ridden with no urgency early as she dropped out the back but again closed superbly late but there was no problems with room to move here as she was under a very strong hold throughout but still doing her best work late. She looks a nice moving filly and keen to follow her on debut.


WATCHLIST

GRAYSONG made it 2 from 2 at the jump outs this prep, winning Heat 6 on Jun 26 as he travelled nicely on speed and closed off well to win and hold off previous winners in Pink Cashmere and Boldinho. He was a nice winner in his return jump out on Jun 14 with both jump outs coming on Heavy tracks where he looked to handle it okay but will certainly be better on top of the ground as his first two career runs suggested. His latest run at Moonee Valley when 3rd reads super now with six of the seven runners that didn’t win, all winning since. He’s got a maiden win in him this prep.


It was an easy win for the 2yo colt WARLORDS in Heat 7 on Jun 26, winning nicely in quick time as he led from start to finish along the rail and backed up his Jun 5 win where he went to the line alongside a 3yo who has since ran 6th in a MDN. He was a $400k buy for Busuttin and the well known Kheir and O’Neill colours where he looks a nice mover.


Unseen since March 2022, ARABIAN MELODY looked back to her best in Heat 8 on Jun 26 as she won comfortably over 800m while doing some nice work late as she extended to and through the line. She wasn’t great in her first jump out 3-weeks ago and may need another bit of work prior to resuming but looks to have come back nicely on the back of this at least.


Another nice jump out from the Russian Revolution colt in THE SATISFYER, taking out Heat 9 on Jun 26 as he cruised outside the leader throughout and went to the line untouched but moving superbly. He showed a stack of speed on the synthetic in his first jump out on Jun 19 where he also just cruised to the line so while he hasn’t been out of first gear yet, it looks as though he has some gears to go through. Big watch on debut.


The talented and well bred ILLATIVE is certainly back and again ready to go the races, backing up a very quiet but good Jun 19 jump out with a very easy win in Heat 11 on Jun 26 as she clocked the fourth fastest time of the morning in the process. We know she’s a half-sister to the group performed Dragon Leap and Illation so adding that to some really good jump outs, she’ll certainly be going very close on debut but if she heads to a country maiden, she’ll be awfully hard to beat.


SIERRA DE GREDOS has been a disappointment in both of his career runs to date where we’ve been on ($2.20 SP and $2.50 SP) and he was back at the jump outs following a 5-week let up in Heat 20 on Jun 26 as he bolted in over 1200m ahead of Excelman. Near impossible to trust him and he may just be a jump out star.


PAKENHAM - 27 June 2023

WANGARATTA - 27 June 2023

WATCHLIST

We don’t normally follow the Wangaratta jump outs as they’re hard to get a read, but it was very hard to ignore the finish on NAH HAY HAY in Heat 9 on Jun 27. The 3yo gelding was out the back of the field in the early stages before being put under pressure at the top of the straight and certainly responding, closing over the top superbly and very quickly. He previously won a Jun 14 as well and is worth keeping an eye on for his debut.


KERANG - 28 June 2023

BALLARAT - 28 June 2023

SALE - 29 June 2023

FLEMINGTON - 30 June 2023

WATCHLIST

DESARMER has looked superb at the jump outs this time in. He was jogging on the spot out the back in a Jun 9 jump out but then if you watch past the line, he was flying and doing his best work. He then went to Kilmore on Jun 21 on a Heavy10 track where he was put under some pressure to really bring him on. His work in Heat 9 on Jun 30 was similar to his first jump out, jogging throughout and cruising to the line. He’s got very mixed form, having the 11x starts where he’s finished in the top 4 four times, but also finishing last or second last on five occasions. If he goes to an 1100m/1200m race first up, he’s likely not a bet and one to follow second up over 1400m+ as this is where he does his best work.

Liked the work of FLYCATCHER in Heat 9, his first jump out this prep so monitor into another bit of work.
