Weekly Review - May 30 to June 5

CRANBOURNE - 30 May 2022


The resuming WATER BOMBER was the pick of those in Heat 6 on May 30, finishing 2nd to the un-raced Mishima after following him throughout the run and cruising to the line relatively untouched. He’s had the 3x career runs for a 3rd and 2x 4th’s with some nice enough form surrounding Brereton (from debut) as well as Merchant Prince and Sir Bailey in his next two runs, which is nice enough 2yo form. One to keep an eye out for another jump out prior to resuming.

CANTINA broke her maiden in her last start before a break last prep and has now won 2x jump outs ahead of her resumption for her second career preparation, taking out Heat 9 on May 30 ahead of the Group 2 placed Pascero as well as Lovie May and Niccolite. She clocked the fastest 800m time of the morning in the process and looks to be flying ahead of her return - big watch first up, especially if she resumes in a BM58 or CL1 and goes through the grades.

I AM WAR only has the 1x win and 1x placing from 11x career starts, that win and placing both coming first up (record of 3: 1-0-1), so he clearly goes best fresh. He’s now put together 2x jump out wins, taking out an 800m jump out on May 16 ahead of subsequent BM64 winner Princess Annalise prior to winning Heat 12 on May 30 ahead of Sir Kalahad with a massive gap back to 3rd. He clocked the fastest 1000m time of the morning in the process and being only 58-rated, he is a huge chance in a BM58 first up. We might get a nice $10+ price and he’ll likely sit on speed, so a huge watch.

Impressive from the 2yo filly STARIANNE. She was likely out sprinted in her first jump out on May 16 over 800m behind Mogulist (since 3rd in MDN) but when she stepped up to the 1000m in Heat 14 on May 30, she was super and showed a tremendous turn of foot over the concluding stages to win with ease. She’s a half-sister to Aravene, who has 3x career wins from 6x starts with the most recent of those coming over 2000m last week at Rosehill (as well as currently being the $4.80 second favourite for the QLD Oaks this weekend), so we can expect this filly to also get over a bit of a distance, as shown by her jump outs too. One to follow first up and deeper into the prep as she steps up in distance. Maybe a Oaks horse as a 3YO towards the end of the year?

WODONGA - 30 May 2022


Quite a nice all the way win by the 2yo filly WHITEHART, taking out Heat 6 on May 31 ahead of the Lindsay Park pair of geldings who are both un-raced, but 4yo and 5yo. She looked to really get to the line with pace and was held back late on the line, doing it quite well. She’s the younger half-sister of Don Diego who was an impressive 3.5L debut winner in March who then ran 4th in the 3YO VOBIS Sires Guineas at Caulfield. Lovely first jump out for this filly.

PAKENHAM - 31 May 2022


MIDIVANI was poor first up, finishing 10th of 11 when starting a $3.20 favourite. She was back at the jump outs, bolting in Heat 3 on May 31 over the 1000m as she looked like she relished the synthetic track. Look for her second up on the synthetic track at her home deck (being Pakenham), expecting improvement.

We mentioned IMASUPERSTAR after his big Apr 29 win at Flemington in the fastest time of the morning when he was with Leon & Troy Corstens. He’s made the stable change to Tim Hughes, jumping out on the synthetic track at Pakenham and looking really slick in doing so, cruising to the line in Heat 5 on May 31 to finish a close 2nd. We mentioned him being a jump and run horse, which wasn’t the case here as he was forced to sit midfield and wide before showing nice closing speed despite being quietly ridden. He can go well on debut, especially if he sticks to a synthetic maiden.

CAULFIELD - 1 June 2022

MORTLAKE - 1 June 2022


WANNABE FAMOUS is an interesting 2yo. He was no match for Sweet Mary in his first jump out on Apr 6, with that runner winning a BM64 first up. He has since won a pair of jump outs, the first of those on Apr 26 ahead of Dashing (since 3rd, 2nd and 2nd in MDN’s) and the latest in Heat 3 on June 1 where he won by a couple lengths quite comfortably in the end. A $10k buy from the 2020 Inglis Australian Weanling Sale, he looks as though he could be making that $ back quite quickly. One to watch for those country maidens.

Big watch on RICH PARIS. She was extremely hard held over 800m on May 23, which was a much different jump out to her work in Heat 5 on June 1 as she led and was pushed out in the straight, shown the whip and all. She was no match for the imported Lindsey Smith 2yo No Drama (a previous winner in NZ) but did it nicely enough ahead of Timson and Garbo. Can run a race on debut.

ST ARNAUD - 2 June 2022


Have no doubt that SPIRIT DE LUNE has the talent to win a maiden, it’s just going to be a matter of being on him when he does, which is becoming harder than it sounds. Not with Heath Chalmers having been bought for $18k from the January Inglis Online Sales, the 4yo gelding took out a May 18 trial before finishing 3rd in Heat 5 on Jun 2 when very quietly ridden. He’s hard to trust, but worth keeping an eye on for the new stable.

RED HAWK who won by 6L on debut but then failed up the straight at Flemington in his second career start when a $2.10 SP favourite. He’s now had the ultimate gear change of becoming a gelding and looks to be in good order (again) ahead of his resumption, winning a May 24 jump out prior to his win in Heat 7 on Jun 2 where he really hit the line with pace. Huge watch first up as a gelding if he can re-capture his 6L debut form…

Finishing 2nd to Red Hawk in Heat 7 on Jun 2 was the 2yo filly CORNER OFF, who has now had the typical Archie Alexander jump outs of a quiet ridden first jump out on May 17 prior to this heat where she was pushed out and while no match for the talented Red Hawk, she did put a big gap on the rest of the field. This daughter of Toronado is worth monitoring ahead of her debut.

Another win for SAN MARINO who is travelling very well ahead of his return. He won a jump out at Horsham over 800m on May 24 just ahead of Great Boulder (who then ran 4th in a MDN first up), but his win in Heat 9 on June 2 over the 900m was certainly the most impressive, clocking the fastest time of the morning ahead of talented 3yo The Front Bar. He’s had the 8x starts for 1x win and 2x placings but he thrives first up with a record of 2: 1-1-0 - first up last preparation he was 2nd in an 1100m BM64. He’s 56-rated, so a BM58 first up would be ideal.

Ridiculous win by RUN JIMMY RUN in Heat 12 on June 2, winning by well over 10L over the 900m. He’s yet to place in 5x career starts, so treading very carefully but you can’t record many bigger wins than this.

FLEMINGTON - 3 June 2022


We noticed THE GREAT HOUDINI in a previous Nov 15 jump out where he was ridden with no urgency and did some nice work past the line. The Written Tycoon gelding didn’t make it to the track then, given more time and is now back at the jump outs in good order. He had a solid May 27 jump out prior to his work in Heat 3 on June 3 which was not dissimilar to his Nov 15 jump out, both on the synthetic. He sat behind the speed before getting space late and really doing his best work late and past the line. He hasn’t set the world alight, but think he’s got talent for the Hawkes yard.

We were keen on KING TOMMY on debut where he was a $2.80 SP favourite but was very disappointing, finishing 6th of 9 when leading throughout, but he did pull up with a slow recovery and was subsequently spelled. Back at the jump outs, the 3yo gelding took out Heat 9 on June 3 on the synthetic track in slick time, clocking the fourth fastest time we have recorded on the Flemington Synthetic track from the past 150x jump outs. Look for another jump out before resuming - we’ll be hoping he’s not just a jump out specialist…
