Weekly Review - May 23 to May 29
CRANBOURNE - 23 May 2022
BEAUKATI is very speedy, her win in Heat 8 on May 23 in the fastest 800m time of the morning was no exception. Think she needs a 1000m BM58 first up to be a real betting proposition.
Lovely return from MASTERFUL, closing superbly in the straight to finish a very close Heat 9 on May 23. He’s got some nice form from his debut prep where he finished 4th, 3rd and 3rd. On debut he finished just behind Rose Tycoon who won impressively earlier today at Ballarat, while second up he finished 3rd to Squid Game (who then won a BM70 next start) and Treporti (won a MDN next start and a BM64 two starts later). Third up he finished 3rd to Lucky Decision (who is now 2x Group 2 placed) and the consistent Endlessly. That form should be enough to stack up in most maidens and this was a very encouraging jump out return.
PENSHURST - 23 May 2022
SAREEM D’ORO’s previous jump outs when with Daniel Bowman back in January were only fair at best, but with the 3yo filly now with Tom Dabernig, she looks to have improved and put together a nice win over the 1000m in Heat 1 on May 23. Time was slightly below average for the day at 1:00.90s (vs days average of 1:00.58s) but it was a nice first jump out back this prep.
GREATER HARLEM makes his way down from NSW with Chris Waller to now be with Tom Dabernig and most importantly, he’s been gelded. He took out Heat 5 on May 23 in the fastest 1000m time of the morning, sitting outside the leader throughout before being put under some pressure from the jockey in the straight and responding in an encouraging performance. He’s certainly got nice enough NSW form as a colt - he was 1.3L off Overpass on debut, 3.29L off Profondo and more recently 3rd to Hoover Lucy and Castlereagh Kid. An $80K purchase at the 2021 Inglis November Online Sales, he’s got more than enough credentials for a VIC country maiden first up as a gelding.
Lovely win by the 3yo filly FIRMITY, showing nice gate speed to take up the lead in Heat 13 on May 23 and just cruising to the line to record an easy win in her first jump out back. She wanted to lay in in the straight to find the fence, but once given a slight push by the jockey, she straightened up and hit the line. First up last prep over 1400m she was 2nd to a race fit Van Roy (who won a BM64 next start), gapping 3rd by 2.5L with some nice enough form with 4th and 6th winning their next start. Doubt we get much of a price for a Lindsey Smith runner, but one to monitor.
PAKENHAM - 24 May 2022
BLISTERING was absolutely flying as she won Heat 3 on May 24 over the 800m, albeit with race fitness having had the 4x runs this prep. She’s turned into quite a consistent speedy filly since she finally broke her maiden at start #5 last prep, winning 2x BM64’s this prep. Look out for her over the synthetic season.
A couple of nice enough wins by a pair of 2yo’s in BOOGIE DANCER, who won Heat 4 on May 24 in the fastest 800m time of the morning, and FAIRY SPIRIT, who won Heat 5 on May 24 in the second fastest time of the morning. Both are worth monitoring to see if they go towards another jump out, or now to the races.
HORSHAM - 24 May 2022
Another win for SLIPSLOPSLAP and it was again in the fastest time of the morning, winning Heat 3 on May 24 following his May 17 win. He went well on the grass here following that synthetic jump out, so he looks to be one that could be competitive first up on either surface. Expecting a decent price and he can be a nice spec bet first up.
If GAMADALE NIP was allowed to run freely, no doubt he would’ve won Heat 7 on May 24 instead of finishing 1L back in 2nd. The 2yo gelding was heavily restrained down the back straight and as a result, was all over the shop and over-racing heaps, which certainly would’ve taken it out of him but he was still able to close over well in the straight when he had a bit more room and free reign.
MORNINGTON - 25 May 2022
HYPOTHETICAL is a must follow into her debut now. We mentioned her after her first jump out last week where she won over 750m on May 18 in the fastest time of the morning, defeating ex-stablemate (and previous winner) Tea Master. We also noted that she jumped out back on Oct 21 in 2021 having been a $310k purchase from the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale, but her most impressive bit of work was her 4L+ win in Heat 9 on May 25. She showed great gate speed, put herself on the speed and absorbed the speed from around her as she sat there under a hold before cruising away from them with ease. She was a class above this lot and she looks as though she’ll be hard to beat on debut.
Superb bit of work from ELITE LEGACY, winning Heat 2 on May 25 in the second fastest 900m time of the morning. The 7yo gelding sat outside the leader in Soaring Eagle (who he dropped with ease late) before just cruising to the line to record an easy win ahead of the likes of Morean and Cliffs Of Belaura. He won a previous May 11 jump out at Caulfield with ease and is certainly ready to head back to the races, where he has a first up record of 8: 1-2-2.
VILLAINESQUE can’t do much more ahead of her return to the races, going one better than her previous two jump outs with a win over the 900m in Heat 4 on May 25. Those around her in this heat were pushed and whipped, while she was quietly ridden and did it quite easy. She was 2nd a couple of weeks ago on May 11 to End Journey in the fastest heat of the morning, while her previous heat was a 2nd (with a big gap to 3rd) to Innocent Enuff on May 4. She jumped out well ahead of her debut, where she failed, which pours some cold water over these performances but regardless, she’s travelling well ahead of her resumption.
The first two across the line in Heat 5 on May 25 are both worth following as they clocked the fastest 900m time of the day.
In 1st was Jerome Hunter’s THRON BONE, a 2yo gelding that ran a 4.25L 4th to Daumier on debut so there is clearly some opinion of this guy. His prior jump outs on Apr 27 and May 11 weren’t quite as impressive as this jump out, but he looks to have taken some nice improvement between each bit of work and is travelling well ahead of his resumption.
In 2nd place is Godolphin’s GARRUCHA, also having his third jump out. On Apr 29 he looked slick as he clocked the third fastest time of the morning before then finishing 2nd on May 18 when pushed out and really asked for an effort. He was asked for a little bit of an effort here as well, but was just no match for Thron Bone late but they did put a gap on 3rd in very quick time. He’s worth monitoring ahead of a debut.
We were on ALL SHE WROTE in her last start at Kilmore before she went for a break. She finished a 0.75L 2nd to My Whisper, who went on to win her next 3x starts (BM64, BM70 & Group 3) before being 3rd in the Group 1 Oaks in SA (starting $2.70 favourite). We’ve also seen 3rd (Maly Malt), 4th (Liming) and 5th (Sassy Choice) all won since. She hasn’t set the world alight at the jump outs ahead of her resumption though, finishing 3rd in Heat 8 on May 25 when only fair but we want to monitor her with that sort of form.
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE won Heat 8 on May 25 in the third fastest 900m time of the morning, but he does have race fitness on his side having had the 5x starts this prep including a maiden win, all with John O’Shea as he makes his way down to VIC to now be with Clayton Douglas off a 3-week freshen up. He’s 55-rated, so a BM58 down in VIC would be more than ideal…
KILMORE - 27 May 2022
RAINBIEL took out Heat 1 on May 27 over the 1000m in the fastest time of the morning. She’s a talented mare that flies fresh with a 1UP record of 5: 2-1-1 and a 2UP record of 4: 1-1-2, so we can expect her to be around the mark fresh again this prep as she approaches her 5YO season.
TOROLINA has put 2x jump out wins on the board now and is certainly moving as if she can win a maiden this prep. Her win over the 1000m in Heat 8 on May 27 should really top her off for the first up run following her May 18 win over 850m ahead of What A Sham, albeit ridden out and pushed. She was very hit and miss last prep, finishing last in her first 2x career runs before having a freshen up and trial where she resumed to finish 9th of 11 before a big run for 3rd at $31 and then finishing last again before a spell. She seems to be jumping out better this prep though, winning this heat in the second fastest 1000m time of the morning behind Rainbiel, so she’s likely going to be worth a spec at a big price first up (and likely second up).
FLEMINGTON - 27 May 2022
GHAANATI didn’t have much room throughout Heat 4 on May 27, technically finishing in the second half of the field on placings, but once she did get some room past the line she really got going. They clocked the second fastest time of the morning too. The 2yo daughter of Deep Impact was 4th in last weeks May 20 jump out and was also doing her best work past the line. In a previous official trial on Jan 25 she was 2nd to a race fit Hell Hath No Fury who then won in her next start after this trial. Can go well on debut.
Superb work from Nick Ryan’s 2yo Starcraft gelding, STARBURY in Heat 6 on May 27. He was away well enough, but hard held in the early stages to take a sit at the rear of the field before really getting into his work in the back half of the heat. Time wise the heat was slow, but his work over the concluding stages and past the line was very good and he looked to be a really nice mover. Only his first jump out so a big watch on him - likely another jump out before debuting.
SUGAR POP went to the line with Zac De Boss in a previous Apr 14 jump out - she was sent for a let up while Zac De Boss went on to finish 2nd in a BM78 before winning a BM70 at Flemington. She returned in Heat 11 on May 27 where she just cruised to and through the line under a hold. As mentioned previously, she suffered heat stress at her last start when a $1.60 SP favourite, so we can forgive that run and judge her on her debut where she was unlucky not to win when 3rd. Big watch this prep.
ALLEGORICAL clocked the fastest time of the morning in her win in Heat 13 on May 27. Her first two career runs were poor, so will be treading carefully and wanting to see another jump out prior to her first up run.
