Weekly Review - May 9 to May 15

CRANBOURNE - 9 May 2022


TYWINA has been very poor in her 2x runs this prep, beating home only 1x runner. The Written Tycoon mare was making very good ground late in Heat 6 on May 9, powering through the line and doing her best work past the line. She had race fitness, but having won another previous 760m jump out on Apr 19 that was also on the synthetic, she might appreciate the surface more so and show some improvement as we get to the synthetic meetings. One to monitor as she’ll be a huge price (started $41 and $201 this prep).

With 3x jump outs under his belt now, it looks as though Robbie Laing has a 2yo with talent on his hands. EL SOLEADO finished 2nd in his first jump out on Mar 15 to Gold Bucket who ran 3rd and 1st in his first two career starts. He caught our eye in his Apr 11 win and now again in his win in Heat 8 on May 9 where he cruised throughout, wearing the blinkers in the latest bit of work. The son of Toronado looks to be a nice enough mover to go well on debut.

INUNDATION won’t be a maiden for much longer. He was a beaten $1.35 favourite on debut when 2nd where Immortal Spirit (3rd) won next start and Dazzling Lucy (4th) won her next two starts. He has been given time since that run, returning to win Heat 10 on May 9 over the 760m on the synthetic track well clocking a very slick time, the fastest for the day and the third fastest overall time. He also beat plenty of previous winners such as Wolflands, Letzxcel and Shame For Fame. First jump out back is a good one, he’s a big watch this prep.

PAKENHAM - 10 May 2022

BURRUMBEET - 10 May 2022


EXCUSEZ MOI kept with Emperor’s Star over the 700m throughout Heat 4 on May 10. That runner was under more jockey pressure and did have race-fitness having had the 2x runs this prep, so a very encouraging return for this 3yo filly. She was close up in her only 2x career runs, so one to monitor now coming into her second career prep.

PHILOSOPHERS STONE looks to have returned in nice order, winning Heat 9 on May 10 in good fashion. The lightly raced 3yo gelding led along the rail and was very hard held throughout, just cruising to the line without ever being asked for an effort. He took out the 1000m in 59.16s, which was above the days average of 59.60s. He resumed gelded last prep for only the 1x run where he won well when leading, gapping 3rd by 5.5L and he looks like one that can go on with it.

ROSE TYCOON started $2.90 last start at Moonee Valley, finishing 3rd with some nice enough form coming from the race now. She was hard held in her return jump out on Apr 21, but was put through her paces in her latest jump out, winning Heat 11 on May 10 over the 1000m in 58.16s (vs days average of 59.60s), which was the fastest time of the morning. Dissimilar to past McEvoy jump out winners, she sat behind the speed with cover before peeling out around the bend and closing well when asked. Like how she showed a turn of foot and didn’t just lead. She should be going close to breaking her maiden this prep.

CHAMPAGNE SHOOTER was beaten a long way in her first 800m jump out on Apr 26, but she was slowly away and never in it. She jumped a lot cleaner in Heat 12 on May 10 and really caught the eye as she travelled on speed and recorded a nice victory in ~average time for the day. She’s a good looking filly and want to monitor where she pops up on debut.

CAULFIELD - 11 May 2022


That’s now 3x jump out wins for RATTLE AND BANG now, he can’t do much more ahead of his return. All 3x of these wins have been in really slick time, with his win in Heat 2 on May 11 over the 800m being the fourth fastest time of the morning. To summarise his past jump outs, his win on Apr 27 over 700m was in a very slick 43.97s, while his win on May 4 was over 750m and won in 47.15s being the fastest time of the morning. He’s flying.

The one that really caught the eye in Heat 2 on May 11 was KEW PLAYER. The 4yo gelding jumped well but was restrained to go back, overracing as a result. Over the concluding stages though, he was allowed to stride out more and really extended, making up ground in a quick heat and doing his best work past the line where he was in front comfortably. He showed a nice turn of foot in last weeks 1000m jump out on May 4 and think he can go on with it in his second Aus prep.

Some nice improvement from TROPICCONI from her first jump out on Apr 27, although she didn’t have a lot of room over the 700m and although she’s listed as 5th, she was only 2L or so off the winner. The 2yo filly won Heat 4 on May 11 in the second fastest time of the morning, travelling under a strong hold in the middle stages before being asked for an effort late, where she responded. She was going on with it past the line and it was a comfortably victory in the end. A $140k Inglis purchase, she looks a 2yo filly that might go well.

The fastest time of the morning was Heat 6 on May 11, being won by END JOURNEY in 48.91s, but it was they grey on the inside that caught the eye. VILLAINESQUE debuted at Flemington back in November when a very disappointing 14th of 15, with the 2yo filly immediately spelled and given more time. She did this very easily and it was a lovely return. Monitoring her into another jump out prior to resuming.

Another win for BAY THIRTEEN who can’t do much more ahead of her debut, where looks to be coming soon. She won last weeks May 4 jump out very easily when leading from start to finish, but was forced to take a sit in Heat 7 on May 11 where she was reluctant to do so early but once she did settle, she travelled well and then was asked to extend late over the concluding stages where she showed a turn of foot, which is an encouraging variation in his run style. The time was below average again, which is the only knock on her but still think this Deep Field filly can feature on debut.

It was only a field of 3x runners so there would’ve been no pressure, but ASTERN VILLA recorded a dominant victory in Heat 10 on May 11 and he did clock a slick 49.27s, above the days average of 49.65s. He’s had 3x starts for 0x placings and this is only his first jump out back, so we’ll just keep an eye on him for now…

FLEMINGTON - 13 May 2022


JEZOULENKO was a class above as the 3yo filly led from start to finish in Heat 4 on May 13, clocking the third fastest time of the morning in the process.

The un-raced 3yo colt GEORGIE GET MAD was put under a bit of pressure at the top of the straight in Heat 4 on May 13, even shown the whip but once warm, the son of Australia really got going and was bolting through the line, doing his best work past the line where he was in front. He’s a nice looking colt that will get over some distance, so keep him in mind as he gets out over a trip.

RURA PENTHE was under a ridiculous hold in his first jump out on Apr 29, just cruising behind the leaders and never being let go. He was put under more pressure in Heat 6 on May 13, but looked to respond well as he finished alongside Elteecee (who was trotting out wide) and ahead of the likes of Endlessly and Lady In The Sky. The un-raced 3yo son of Maurice was a $210k purchase from the 2020 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale for Orbis Bloodstock and has shown enough to go well on debut.

Really good debut jump out win in Heat 7 on May 14 from Caroline Jennings un-raced Hellbent filly, HONEYCUP. The 2yo filly did it really easy out in front, but it was her work past the line that really caught the eye as she just kept extending and going on with it. She also won this heat in the second fastest time of the morning, adding some more merit to the win. Looks a nice filly, but we’ll be watching for another jump out prior to the debut.

Not sure why MCTAGGART went against the older horses on debut, he was a bit out of his depth when 4th despite starting $1.90 although he did have slow recovery. Also noting that he was slow to begin in his jump outs prior to his debut and then away slowly on debut but the 2yo colt was back at the jump outs where he bolted in Heat 13 on May 13 and was away beautifully to lead throughout. If he runs against his own age second up, he’s going to be hard to beat.

WARWICK FARM - 9 May 2022

LASHES - Matthew Smith

May 9 (Warwick Farm) - won by 4.73L in the second fastest time of the morning - had race fitness having had the 1x run over 1100m on a Heavy track only 10 days ago, but did win this easily and impressively.


She’s a 2yo daughter of Astern that’s a half-sister to Persan.

May 9 (Warwick Farm) - sat outside the leader here who looked to get a bit of a gap around the corner but this filly really got going late when pushed out and closed super over the top to win - her first trial was very quiet as she was hard held and never shown, the opposite of this as she was pushed out - liked the way she responded and showed she had a motor there, looks a filly that we can follow.
