Weekly Review - November 1 to November 7
FLEMINGTON - 1 November 2021
Starting to build a bit of an opinion of JEZOULENKO and think she’ll go alright on debut. In the second fastest time of the morning, she led the whole way to win Heat 5 on Nov 1 ahead of impressive maiden winner Jump The Broom who was put under more pressure throughout and had the rest of the field covered. She also led the whole way in an Oct 1 synthetic jump out too that caught our eye as she finished in front of the 65-rated Rousseau and Fashion Avenue (who then won by 1.5L first up). The 3yo Zoustar filly has shown talent at the jump outs and now just needs to bring it on debut, where we expect her to run well.
Another jump out from PAGAN, winning Heat 11 on Nov 1 where he was hard ridden but put a nice gap on the field and clocked a nice time in the process, being the third fastest time of the morning. This being his third jumping and the fact he was asked for an effort will certainly bring him on for his debut and there should be no query on fitness levels. Happy to follow him into his debut, some nice jump outs should have him well placed.
THE BALLET DANCER looks to have a nice turn of foot and has shown it in a couple of jump outs now. She sat on speed in her Oct 15 jump out, similar to her work her in Heat 12 on Nov 1, extending away late as she was asked for an effort and really putting the field away quite comfortably. Liked the turn of foot and think she's one worth keeping in mind.
CRANBOURNE - 1 November 2021
Heat 5 on Nov 1 was the second fastest heat of the morning over 800m, and the first two across the line had a bit on the rest of the field and think they’re both worth following.
MASTERFUL was previously mentioned following an Oct 11 jump out alongside subsequent maiden winner Corvino and put in a nice performance to win this heat despite being put under pressure and being ridden out. Think he’s capable of going well in a maiden on debut.
The un-named Michael Kent horse under the breeding SOOBOOG x DAZZLEDAR was the pick of the two, just cruising throughout on the outside under significantly less jockey pressure but still travelling just as well and pretty much matching motors. The 3yo colt cruised to win an Oct 18 jump out as well and certainly looks to have a bit of talent. He’s a must follow.
Have to follow MYSTIC REALM, just cruising to the line under a ridiculous hold but still winning Heat 7 on Nov 1. The 3yo colt had the mouth open pulling throughout, especially as he was crossing the line to suggest he certainly could’ve and wanted to go quicker. Only his first jump out back, one for the watch list.
Slick all the way win by JENNI OF AVALON in Heat 9 on Nov 1 in her return, resuming for her third stable now as a 4yo mare. Want to see another jump out before diving into anything with her.
SISTER VIANNEY was 2nd in Heat 9 on Nov 1 behind Jenni Of Avalon and her form is very appealing. She was completely luckless on debut (complete ignore) before finishing 2nd to Elusive Express (2nd in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas) and then 3rd when travelling wide without cover. She’s been given time, now resuming as a 3yo and looked to travel beautifully here as she did her best work over the concluding stages despite never being asked for an effort. One to follow as this was only her first jump out back.
Want to be following INNER SPIRIT, who looks to be returning as a gelding and just cruised in Heat 12 on Nov 1. His debut 3rd has given some ridiculous form, with 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th all winning at their next start… Nice return here and one to follow with that sort of form and the key gear change.
MORTLAKE - 1 November 2021
ADMIRALS AHOY had another jump out, cruising to the line in Heat 3 on Nov 1 only 4 days after his previous jump out. He looks to be gearing up for a debut and will no doubt be fit enough and ready to go. He hasn’t set the world on fire at the jump outs, so think we might get an alright price that we can spec.
Would love to see GLENFERRIE GIRL in a BM58 over 1000m first up, wining Heat 5 on Nov 1 in nice time being her first jump out back this preparation. She was competitive in BM64’s and even BM70’s last preparation so a BM58 first up would be the perfect scenario and we’d be keen to follow her into one.
KEV’S GIRL has bolted in Heat 7 on Nov 1, the quickest 800m time of the morning where he just went straight to the front and gave nothing else a chance. He’s got a friendly racing pattern where he’ll almost certainly lead or be on pace at worst so we know he’ll have every chance and should he pop up in a BM64 first up, he’s worth following.
Some nice 2YO form now for SEACOLE, finishing 6th to the subsequent Group 2 & 3 winner Arcaded on debut before finishing 3rd to Lightsaber while defeating some subsequent winners in the process. She had a previous 800m jump out on Oct 19 before cruising to the line in 3rd in Heat 10 on Nov 1 untested and looks to have returned in nice order. With that 2YO to 3YO natural progression and some nice jump outs, she can go well first up.
CAULFIELD - 3 November 2021
GOLD GLAMOUR is an interesting one. She was a very impressive winner of Heat 3 on Nov 3 in slick time but her previous jump outs were only fair, sitting in behind them on Sep 28 before a poor Oct 12 jump out. One to keep an eye on when she debuts as this latest jump out was very good.
MORNINGTON - 3 November 2021
THAT CONTAGEOUS has now won three jump outs and looks primed to make a winning return to the races, potentially now as a gelding. He debuted as a 2yo behind Artorius, where he finished 7th beaten by 7.15L and immediately spelled. He’s return to win a jump out on Oct 13 ahead of subsequent 3.5L maiden winner Unflinching before winning a jump out on Oct 27 and then again in Heat 8 on Nov 3 where he was way too speedy when leading throughout and really strung the field out. He clocked nice time in the process too and was still extending away past the line. Some impressive bits of work and we think he can make a nice return to the races on the back of these.
DUPIE DOLL was way too slick for Award Winner, with these two too slick for the rest of the field in Heat 2 on Nov 3. This 6yo mare did have the benefit of race fitness, having won a BM58 at St Arnaud on Oct 24, but she still did this well and wouldn’t mind seeing another country BM58 second up for the new Mark Stephenson stable.
IL BRACCIO was too good for them in a 600m jump out on Oct 20, showing good speed again to win Heat 6 on Nov 3 quite comfortably in the end. He’s a 3yo gelding owned by Glenhuntly Lodge and his trainer Logan McGill, so suspect they have an opinion of him and we certainly have an opinion of him after some nice jump outs. Hoping to see one more 800m+ jump out prior to his debut to have some real confidence, even if he doesn’t, he can still go close on debut following these bits of work.
BALLARAT - 3 November 2021
HURTLE cruised to a victory in Heat 3 on Nov 3 in the fastest 850m time of the morning. He was a 5.5L winner on debut but disappointing second up when last by 14L, starting $2.40 that day and clearly being well short of his best and spelled immediately. He’s capable of winning some races in his second career preparation.
Speaking of big maiden winners, TRANSPLANT was a 6L maiden winner first up last preparation before running 4th in a BM70 and then being sent for a spell. She returned to bolt in Heat 4 on Nov 3, albeit in slowish time for the day but she did it easy enough in only her first jump out back.
NSW - OTHER
BOOMSONG - Mark Newnham
Nov 3 (Warwick Farm) - smart bit of work here by the half-brother to Malkovich - was away poorly from out wide but had early speed as he pushed forward out wide and then came over the top of the leaders with ease in the straight, closing super and looked like he could explode if asked for an effort - looks talented.
