CRANBOURNE - 7 March 2022
The un-named Busuttin & Young colt under the breeding TIVACI x KUMARI (NZ) was very green, but he also looked quite talented as he won Heat 4 on Mar 7. He showed super gate speed with some early pace to lead but went sideways around the bend and caused some interference before cruising to the line under a hold. Only his first jump out, so one to keep an eye on.
Of the first four across the line in Heat 6 on Mar 7, being the fastest 800m time of the morning, only MISS JENNIFER was still a maiden. The un-raced 3yo filly followed Rastelli throughout before peeling off and coming up the inside to finish well in her first jump out this preparation.
QUINTELLO has returned in good order, closing super to finish 2nd to Lake Tai in his return jump out on Feb 21 prior to winning Heat 9 on Mar 7 ahead of Lake Tai. The lightly raced 5yo mare looks to have returned in good order and can build on her career record with some more wins this preparation.
COLAC - 8 March 2022
HARBIN was slowly away in his return in Heat 1 on Mar 8, but closed super over the concluding stages to finish a very close 3rd (0.6L) despite being under no pressure from jockey Jarrod Fry. The 3yo colt is a half-brother to Tycoon Storm (19:8-2-2 with $261k in prize money) and looked to be a nice mover in his return. One to keep an eye on.
ROMAN LAW comes to Victoria having won a few WA trials with W Pike on board for Grant & Alana Williams, which we can watch on Racing WA. The 4yo gelding made his trial/jump out debut for Danny O’Brien with a solid showing in Heat 9 on Mar 8, closing superbly behind Grinzinger Prince and Almsgiver despite being under no pressure from Damian Lane and travelling 3-wide with no cover throughout on a Heavy track. He looked to be a really nice mover and is one to keep an eye on.
WANGARATTA - 9 March 2022
MOJO MUSIC has been quietly costly since he broke his maiden on debut, finishing 2nd in all of his next four starts as SP’s of $2.70/$1.50/$2.45/$2.05. He returned to win Heat 7 on Mar 9 in the fastest 900m time of the morning (13x heats) ahead of Controversial Miss. Would follow him into a BM58 first up, but expect to see another bit of work beforehand.
MORNINGTON (WOOLAMAI) - 9 March 2022
Mentioned after his Feb 16 win, BATTLEGROUND has had an additional two jump outs with a quiet 4th to Unflinching on Mar 2 followed by an easy win in Heat 3 on Mar 9. We’ll be following him into a BM58 first up (hopefully).
ARARAT - 9 March 2022
Superb turn of foot by SMILING AMOS once he got clear air in the straight. The 3yo gelding travelled in behind the speed throughout Heat 5 on Mar 9, struggling for room early in the straight but was able to get a gap late and when he was asked for an effort briefly, he really responded and put them away to win with the talented Tinandali in 2nd. This was not dissimilar to his first jump out over 1000m on Feb 3 (3rd was Sauce Horsey who has since won a BM58 by 1.8L) but his middle jump out on Feb 15 behind Topeka saw him lead, which doesn’t look to suit him. This was nice though, he’s one to keep an eye on for debut.
POWER OF SONG is travelling well ahead of her return to the races, closing super in all three of her jump outs despite being under no jockey pressure in either of them. These include closing from a long way back in a Feb 23 800m jump out, followed by a 1000m jump out win on Mar 3 and her 3rd placing in Heat 14 on Mar 9 over the 1000m behind Scottish Dancer. She ran well on a Heavy8 track on debut (rating +4.1) before starting a $1.80 favourite and running poorly with a slow recovery and being immediately spelled. The three jump outs will have her forward for her return and she looks to be in good order.
It was good to see the talented EXCELLERATION put together a big win over the 1000m in Heat 17 on Mar 9, just cruising at the back under a strangle hold before coming out wide and exploding to win by 3L+ once he was asked for an effort in the straight. He’ll go to a BM70 first up.
SALE - 10 March 2022
CLYDEBANK ROBBER closed super over the concluding stages of Heat 5 on Mar 10, the flashy 3yo colt coming from a long way back down the middle of the track to get up on the line. Looking at his breeding too, he’s out of the mare Lacey Underall who was quite a talented mare herself having won the Group 2 Adelaide Cup over 3200m. Only his first jump out this preparation, but he’s one to keep an eye on.
KILMORE - 11 March 2022
Two nice jump out wins now for FUNNY IMPACT, bolting in Heat 5 on Mar 11 following a nice 1000m win on Feb 25. The 3yo filly was very disappointing in both her runs in her debut preparation, finishing 9th (of 11) and 5th (of 7) in those two runs. She’s been given more time now and these were encouraging jump outs. She started $61 and $26 in both of her runs to date, so we might get a nice price first up for a spec.
FLEMINGTON - 11 March 2022
FOUJITA SAN’s work past the line in his first jump on Mar 4 was worth noting. He then showed similar late closing speed in his big win in Heat 4 on Mar 11, responding to the riding and extending away to win with ease and really getting through the line. The 2yo son of Maurice was a $360k buy from the Easter Yearling sales and looks to move well. One to monitor.
We were keen on WHYWHYWHYDELILAH on debut where she started $2.25 but was disappointing… she then stepped up to 1200m second up at $21 and ran a lot better, finishing 3rd to a talented Our Heidi with Cherrypick 2nd who came out and won next start. Given time, she returned to finish a quiet 4th in Heat 5 on Mar 11 behind some more experienced gallopers in Little Stevie and New York Baby in an encouraging jump out. She looks to have come back a better horse this prep but we’ll wait for another jump out before diving in.
SQUAD is speedy, leading from start to finish in Heat 8 on Mar 11 despite being under no jockey pressure throughout. The 2yo colt was a $470k Magic Millions purchase for Ruper Legh and was a quiet 2nd in a previous Mar 4 where he looks to be quite a nice mover. He’s nominated for the Golden Slipper (obviously won’t get there) and the Inglis Sires so we’ll keep an eye on this colt for his debut.
Thought LADY LAGUNA was absolutely super in her win of Heat 10 on Mar 11, clocking the fastest time of the 16x jump outs for the morning and winning with ease, she was a clear class above even though she also has the race fitness. She’ll be heading towards the Golden Slipper next week and assume that Annabel Neasham brought her down to Melbourne to get a grass gallop with the poor weather in Sydney. She’s $26/$7 in the Golden Slipper having started $2.50 in her last two runs and goes well on the wet… looks overs!
BANKROLL has started as an odds-on favourite in both of his career runs but just wasn’t quite up to it. He was tipped out and notably has been gelded as well, returning in Heat 13 on Mar 11 where he was ridden quietly out the back with not much room to move. Looks to move well, so we’ll keep an eye out for another jump out before resuming as a gelding.
