Weekly Review - March 14 to March 20

CRANBOURNE - 15 March 2022

Bella Nipotina’s little sister BELLA SORELLINA was super again, with the 3yo filly closing super over the concluding stages in Heat 9 on Mar 15 and really attacking the line hard and certainly backing up her Feb 28 jump out where she was under a under a vice grip throughout. After that previous jump out we mentioned we were keen to see another jump out before resuming, this bit of work exactly what we needed to see and we’re keen to follow her into that first up run.


TSUGARU was extremely unlucky last preparation where he was a moral beat first up and arguably second up (when lame as well) before probably coming to the end of this prep third up and spelled. The 4yo gelding returned for a nice win on Feb 28 (ahead of subsequent Picnic winner Relyonbella) before just cruising to the line under a hold in Heat 7 on Mar 15 in super fashion. He looks to be back in good order and would love him to head back to a BM58 first up with more luck…

MY MONARO was also in Heat 7 on Mar 15 with Tsugaru and also travelled to the line under a hold and untested. The 4yo gelding has only had the one start, but it was on a Heavy9 track and he now changes stables to Ross Pecora. One to monitor as this was only his first jump out back - would expect (and want) a big price first up.

Of the four that went across the line in Heat 8 on Mar 15, being the fastest 800m time of the morning, THE HASS was ridden the quietest and looked to be travelling the better of the four. The 3yo gelding finished behind Extreme Warrior in a previous Feb 14 jump out and looks to be moving well ahead of his return.

VISINARI absolutely bolts in Heat 10 on Mar 15 over the 1000m, defeating Bonvicini (recently 4.8L off a GRP3) and the rest of the field with ease. The 5yo gelding bounced out of the gates, straight to the front and then it was all over. This is his second Aus campaign and is now with Mick Price & Michael Kent, so one to monitor.

HORSHAM - 15 March 2022


Another jump out win for STARSELLA ahead of her return, taking out Heat 2 on Mar 15 as she stepped up to 1000m but probably didn’t do it quite as convincingly as we would’ve liked to see. She looks to have come back improved this prep but probably would’ve liked to see a little more from her here. The 2nd placed horse in MOORAK MISS seemed to stick with her and it was only that 3yo filly’s first jump out… she might be one to keep an eye on?

After a 3-week freshen up, SAFE SECRET was back at the jump outs for the third time this prep as he closed well over the concluding stages to finish a >1L 3rd in Heat 4 on Mar 15 over the 800m. With these 3x 800m jump outs under his belt now, he should be forward enough first up to give a really good sight and is hopefully one we can spec at a price considering his poor debut run (despite now being gelded). Big watch.

MORNINGTON - 16 March 2022


DON’T HESITATE is an expensive colt from an expensive family with China Horse Club and Newgate buying up this family year after year… they bought this colt in 2020 for $440k, buying his full-brother in 2021 for $350k (being the 2yo Calgary Stampede) and his half-brother by I Am Invincible in 2022 for $850k, which is usually a good sign. He was previously with Gai Waterhouse, winning some trials up in NSW before coming to the Freedman’s where he was very quiet in a Feb 16 jump out before cruising to victory in Heat 6 on Mar 16 with the blinkers on. Lovely win, one to keep an eye on for his debut.

Blinkers on for FORBES, who is still a colt despite only having the one placing from five starts, which came on debut when he was just beaten by Anamoe. The stable clearly have an opinion of him and they’ll be really hoping he can finally live up to his potential in his third career preparation. He was quietly ridden in a Feb 16 jump out, but the blinkers looked to do the trick as he won Heat 7 on Mar 16 over 1000m comfortably under no jockey pressure at all.

BLESS HER bolted in Heat 8 on Mar 16 over the 750m in the fastest time of the morning.

Comfortable win for the 2yo filly NO LOCKDOWNS in Heat 9 on Mar 16, a $300k MM Gold Coast Yearling Sale purchase who looks to be a nice mover. Only her first jump out.

PENMAN was mentioned after a Feb 14 jump out, cruising to the line under a hold down the middle of the track. The 2yo colt then jumped out on Feb 25 where he was under a strong hold until given a little push late but still wasn’t fully tested. He was slow-ish out in Heat 13 on Mar 16, travelling 3-wide with cover throughout at the back of the field before coming out wide in the straight and cruising over the top of them to win quite well. He looks to have a turn of foot and move well.

SUNZOU was absolutely superb in his first jump out this prep. He had a pair of jump outs at the end of last year, winning on Nov 17 and Dec 1 but didn’t quite get to the track. Given more time, the 2yo colt was a clear class above in Heat 14 on Mar 16, leading from start to finish and moving with ease as he won in the second fastest time of the morning behind Bless Her. He was a $150k MM Gold Coast Yearling Sale purchase and looks a stylish mover, one to monitor for another jump out prior to the debut.

RED SISTA is listed as ‘retired’ on Racing Australia, but it looks as though she’s back and back in really good order as she bolted in Heat 17 on Mar 16. The 4yo mare was 3rd and 2nd in her first two career starts before finishing a distant 14.5L last at Sandown where she was found to have a throat condition and be lame. She looks to be well over those issues now and was a class above in her return jump out. She’s a big watch if she gets back to the race track!

PAKENHAM - 16 March 2022


STARRY LEGEND has been gelded and will be looking to go on with it this preparation, winning Heat 2 on Mar 16 in the fastest 800m time of the morning.

The 3yo filly BOTANY dropped to the back of the field in Heat 4 on Mar 16 before extending away to win over Denims with a big gap back to 3rd. As a 2yo, she finished 2nd to Pounding on Jan 6 and then 2nd again on Apr 13, this time to a very talented Gimmie Par which is very good jump out form from her 2yo year. This was her first jump out this preparation and was certainly good enough to suggest she has some talent. Might be a nice filly for Coolmore.

PERI PERI RICH was way too good for them in her return jump out, taking out Heat 6 on Mar 16 by a comfortable margin with relative ease in the third fastest time of the morning. The lightly raced 4yo mare sat midfield but really extended away late over the concluding stages under minimal pressure. She finished 5th on debut at an SP of $3 but not a lot went right, held up at vital stages but did get home in the meetings 6th fastest L400m. Only her first jump out this prep, one to monitor.

FLEMINGTON - 18 March 2022


The fastest heat of the morning, being Heat 2 on Mar 18 certainly featured some speedy gallopers. INVINCIBLE JET led from start to finish just ahead of the the in-form gelding MIDWEST, both looking very nice. SCISSOR STEP closed well into 3rd and looked to move really nicely, backing his lovely Mar 11 win last week.

Pushed out and given a few hits of the stick, but LE FERRARI won Heat 3 on Mar 18 well and clocked nice time in the process. The 2yo Toronado colt was a $200k Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling purchase and is a half-brother to talented gallopers Obfuscation and Hai Sun.

Slick jump out by the 3yo filly SERADESS in Heat 4 on Mar 18, cruising throughout to win in the third fastest time of the morning with a decent gap to the rest of the field.

GOLDEN MILE was a clear class above, taking out Heat 9 on Mar 18 by a big margin after Oil gave him some urgings late without getting too into him. Will note that this heat was won in 48.62s, significantly slower than the days average of 46.62s. The blinkers went on here following a solid 3rd in a Mar 4 jump out.


PANTONARIO - Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott

Form reads really well.. finishing 3rd in all three starts being to Coolangatta on debut, then Fireburn and Revolutionary Miss before Queen Of The Ball and Revolutionary Miss.

Mar 14 (Warwick Farm) - lovely trial off a freshen up, travelling wide without cover but closing super over the concluding stages when asked to extend - won well in a nice bit of work.

GULF OF LION - Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott

Mar 14 (Warwick Farm) - fastest time of the ~810m heats - went forward from out wide, travelling 3-wide without cover and then kicked away around the bend to win by 3.67L comfortably - class above.

ASTERIA - Mark Newnham

Dec 7 (Randwick) - very slick work from the 2yo Capitalist filly who’s a full-sister to the talented Profiteer - showed much of the same traits of her brother, with a stack of early speed to lead and was way too speedy for them throughout the 740m as she kicked away to win by 3.57L and a further 3.22L back to 3rd - only her first trial too, potentially on a Magic Millions path having been a $375k purchase from the 2021 MM sales.

Mar 18 (Randwick - Soft7) - fastest of the 3x 1050m 2yo trials - jumped beautifully, went straight to the front along the rail but did over do it with the head everywhere and mouth open as she wanted to get on with it - she kicked away around the bend to open up a huge margin where they then made ground on her late, although the horse making ground on her was Sheeza Belter who’s coming off a 6-week let up (race fitness) having had 3x starts for 2x 1st and a 2nd - she wouldn’t want it any further, but nice bit of work regardless.

STROMBUS (NZ) - John O'Shea

Mar 18 (Randwick - Soft7) - he’ll be ready to go first up on the back of these - not worried about the slow time as he was out the back and time was dictated by those up the front and he still made ground on them - he dropped to the back of the field and travelled under a very strong hold throughout before getting the gaps in the straight and cruise over the top of the field to just miss on the line - super bit of work.

TAVI L’AMOUR (NZ) - John O'Shea

Mar 18 (Randwick - Soft7) - she’s a nice filly, but she just gets back way too far - she was slowly away here, sat at the end of the field and then cruised home down the outside to make up a lot of ground and finish only 0.83L off the winner… super closing speed and nice trial, just gets too far back.
