Weekly Review - November 22 to November 28

CRANBOURNE - 22 November 2021

The win of the un-named Michael Kent horse in Heat 10 on Nov 22 was almost as good as you’ll see at the jump outs. He’s an un-named 3yo colt under the breeding HEADWATER x OVERBLIK and he was simply way too good. He jumped beautifully from the inside barrier, took up the lead along the rail and then kicked away in the straight while under no jockey pressure. He did it with ease and a bit of class, and he clocked the third fastest 800m time of the morning in the process. His first jump out on Nov 8 was also really nice, even though he finished 5th, he was very hard held and only 1-2L off the winner. He’s a must follow this colt - super jump out.


MUTINOUS has now won two jump outs after making the switch to Enver Jusufovic, his win in Heat 3 on Nov 22 though was by a huge margin. Since he’s been gelded, he’s ran 2nd, 1st, 1st and 9th (when he had abrasions), so there is no doubt the gelding has really switched him on as his three runs as a colt were just okay. His two wins have come in SA though, so we’d like to see a BM58 first up back in VIC to consider him as a bet. Can’t do much more than win jump outs like this though.

MESA BELLA ran well on debut over 1300m behind Luna Cat and Extreme Emotion. The run rated +5.2 but she was wide throughout and closed well from the back. A jump out now in between runs, finishing 3rd in Heat 4 on Nov 22, should have her ready to go second up, potentially over 1400m? She’s one to follow with that first up run under the belt.

CECIL STREET LAD finished 2nd in Heat 4 on Nov 22 and looks to be back in really good order. This was a really slick bit of work in his return and he has some nice form on the board too. Hopefully he goes to a BM64 first up.

Big watch on THE PUP following her jump out win in Heat 8 on Nov 22, defeating recent maiden winner Express Master. She had a previous jump out on Nov 8 where she showed good gate speed to lead along the rail but was hard held and never allowed to fully stride. This heat was similar, showing nice gate speed to lead along the rail but this time she was going way too quick for the rest of them and put a nice margin on most of the field. She was given some pushes late but did it comfortably enough to suggest she might have some talent there. One for the watch list.

A pair of nice jump outs now for JENNI ESPRIT, who looks to be travelling well ahead of her return for Enver Jusufovic and we’d love to see her pop up in a BM58 first up. She got the better of a pushed out Hassett in Heat 9 on Nov 22 with a gap to 3rd, but that galloper is unplaced in four career starts. Regardless, she looked to move nicely and clocked the second fastest 800m time of the morning too. Looks in good order.

Bit of an interesting one - there were five that went across the line together on Nov 8 and all of them looked to go alright. We’ve seen Title Shot (2nd) come out and run 2nd but the rest are un-raced. The 3rd horse was an un-named Clinton McDonald who won Heat 6 On Nov 22 comfortably, being RICH ENUFF x A LUST TO LIVE. The 5th horse was an un-named Michael Kent horse (mentioned above) who absolutely bolted in Heat 10 on Nov 22 and looks to have a heap of talent, being HEADWATER x OVERBLIK. DRAKE PASSAGE (1st) was then 4th in Heat 13 on Nov 22, probably the only one that was a bit iffy and we’re not sure about. JENNIFERENTI (4th) is the other one from the heat. Think we have to follow all of these horses (bit skeptical on Drake Passage) and keep in mind where they pop up and see how the form goes from this jump out.

BALLARAT - 22 November 2021


WITCHFULTHINKING looked smart as she took out Heat 1 on Nov 22 in her return.

SNOW BUSINESS was 5th in Heat 2 on Nov 22 but it was the fastest 900m jump out of the morning and the four who finished ahead of her have all won at least one race. The un-raced 3yo filly would’ve gone close to winning any other jump out on the day.

Wouldn’t mind seeing KERIOTH go to another BM58 second up following a 0.5L BM58 win first up and another nice jump out in between runs with this win in Heat 4 on Nov 22 in nice time. Had the 67-rated Demando (2nd) covered with a further gap back to 3rd.

We’ve previously had an opinion of AMALFI SPRITZ before his last preparation. He was lame first up and coughing before finishing a close 0.6L 4th second up. He was given more time and now gelded, resuming in Heat 6 on Nov 23 with a quiet but nice bit of work. He’s one to keep an eye on into another jump out - him resuming gelded is a big gear change.

As easy as you like for GINGER JONES in Heat 7 on Nov 23, and he has a fantastic first up record of 5 starts for 1-3-1. Wouldn’t surprise to see that 100% placing first up record continue first up this prep on the back of this work.

UPTOWN LUCY with another jump out win, her fifth jump out win from her last five jump outs, all in the last four months. She took out Heat 8 on Nov 23 over the 900m. She’s doing all you can ask for at the jump outs, but the amount of jump outs she’s had puts some doubt in our mind that there is some sort of issue with her. One to keep in mind on debut, which should be soon…

DAMASK ROSE bolted in Heat 9 on Nov 23, jumping straight to the front and burning the rest of the field for pace to lead from start to finish and even under minimal pressure, they couldn’t get close to her. She won first up last preparation, so we could see similar first up this preparation but she will resume in a BM58/BM64, potentially at a nice price though.

KILMORE - 22 November 2021


WHAT HAPPENED (used to be named Colossale) was 3rd in Heat 6 on Nov 22, his third jump out in 13 days where he was ridden cold out the back and then given a push late and asked to respond. An Aus debut shouldn’t be far away now.

CAULFIELD - 23 November 2021


Quite a slick return win for the 3yo colt DANAUSTAR, cruising to a win in Heat 2 on Nov 23 in slick time. There wasn’t a lot in terms of quality opposition, but he did it well out wide under a strong hold before extending away late with ease. Nice jump out.

MOE - 23 November 2021

IL BRACCIO is certainly one we should follow into his debut now. We mentioned him after a Nov 3 jump out over 800m where he won comfortably and that backed up his 600m Oct 20 jump out. We mentioned we wanted to see one more 800m+ jump out prior to his debut, and instead we got a 1000m trial, which is even better. He travelled well on speed in Heat 12 on Nov 23 and just cruised to the line under no pressure from Campbell Rawiller, going through the motions and moving well. Keen to follow him into a debut now.


He’s had a few jump outs and trials now so he’s not short of education, but it was an easy 3L win for ABBSOLUTELYFABB in Heat 3 on Nov 23 over the 1200m, clocking a nice 1:14.12s which was a massive 2.82s quicker than the other 1200m heat on the day and he did it untouched leading from start to finish. Looked as though the blinkers went on here and they certainly looked to spark some improvement. Plenty of trials, a debut can’t be far away.

Few to follow from Heat 8 on Nov 23 that were having their first trial/jump out and performed well.

The winner was TASPINARO who sat just off the pace before coming over the top late under minimal riding.

The 2nd horse, STORMY MISTRESS, is a half-sister to Streets Of Avalon and Orlando Grove (who ran 2nd at $41 on debut before winning second up). This was her second bit of work after a Nov 17 jump out at Pakenham where she had to close from the back - she looks a run on type with some talent like her siblings.

Even the 3rd horse, TEMLEH, who’s an 4yo 8-start maiden but this was a nice bit of work after travelling wide throughout.

PRINCE OF PORTY led and was just overran in a 1000m jump out on Nov 17, but he was able to hold on and win Heat 11 on Nov 23 by 1L after again leading but having a bit more to give late and being strong through the line. He’s not a stand out, but two 1000m jump outs and trials is a good fitness base heading into his debut and he can certainly lead and give a sight.

In addition, the winner of Heat 12 on Nov 23 was ARLO MAGIC, who travelled on speed with Il Braccio but was put under pressure in the straight and responded to open up a 1L win and was strong through the line. He was a quiet 3rd in his Nov 17 jump out but looked to do it easily under no pressure, so it was good to see him respond to some pressure here. He won a trial back on May 3 by 2L to suggest he had some talent back then, and these are encouraging bits of work.

PAKENHAM - 23 November 2021

Another very slick win for PRECIOUS SOCKS, taking out Heat 2 on Nov 23 over the 1000m where she clocked a nice 1:00.46s and backed up her previous Nov 9 win. In this heat, she showed good gate speed to lead and was just too speedy despite not being asked for an effort. She seemed to have a bit on this field including Kermy in 2nd. Glenn Cross doesn’t have a lot of horses in work, but this 4yo mare has some okay form on the board as a 3yo already and on the back of these jump outs, can give a sight first up this preparation.


FAR ENOUGH showed plenty of talent on debut but has quite shown that same talent since. Given a bit more time and now returning as a 4yo, he cruised to victory in Heat 5 on Nov 23. Now only 60-rated, he could pop up in a mid-week BM58 and be very competitive.

PENSHURST - 23 November 2021

Three jump outs now for PERMUTATION and all of them quite eye catching. The first two came on Oct 25 and Nov 9, with his latest a win in Heat 7 on Nov 23 where he travelled wide throughout just off the speed of Knock Knock before coming home strong down the middle of the track under minimal jockey pressure to win. He looked to attack the line well here and being out of a mare who stretched out over 1600m+, he might be better as he steps out over a bit more of a trip. Regardless, a country maiden on debut will be a perfect kick off point where he can go well.


Another jump out for MEDIA EMPIRE, taking out Heat 2 on Nov 23 over the 1000m ahead of previous winners Francie Girl and Excuses Excuses. He was quietly ridden until the concluding stages when pushed and responded better than the other two gallopers who are better than maiden grade. This jump out was better than it looks on face value and another nice bit of work.

FLEMINGTON - 26 November 2021

NEWLEY WED has been showing some really nice closing speed in her jump outs to suggest she might have some talent. In both of her jump outs she’s sat in behind the speed before peeling out in the straight and closing over the top. She was 2nd in her first jump out on Nov 19 and backed it up with a 2nd in Heat 8 on Nov 26. This 3yo daughter of Savabeel looks to move really well and we’re keen to follow her into a debut, which looks close. She looks classy.

HOKOLESQUA was mentioned after his Nov 15 jump out where he went to the line with (and better than) the 64-rated Wegobam. He did his credentials no harm when 2nd in Heat 16 on Nov 26 where he again showed nice gate speed to lead under a strong hold and then just cruising to the line, with the jockey not moving. We certainly can’t knock his jump outs and with him having the two nice jump outs, he’s a must follow into his debut.


It wasn’t quite the same jump out for GLAMOURING in Heat 8 on Nov 26, sitting on speed throughout and being put under pressure in the straight where she didn’t close off quite as well as expected.

CROSSFIRE ROAD closed well over the top of Sessions Road in Heat 12 on Nov 26 following her quiet Nov 15 jump out. She was put under some pressure in this heat to get going, but thought she responded well enough and closed well late, hitting the line hard. She’s worth keeping in mind.

CHALONNE PRINCESS was the pick of Heat 13 on Nov 26, extending away from the field over the concluding stages as she was a couple of slight pushes. She was 2nd to Nordic on Nov 19 where she did it quite easily under a strong hold. She looks to move well enough to suggest she might have some talent.

The blinkers went on for WINAM GULF between her Nov 15 jump out and her big win in Heat 15 on Nov 26, clearly sparking some improvement.


Hawkesbury (Nov 22) - Day’s Average (All) - 1000m: 1:00.64s | 34.89s

Hawkesbury (Nov 22) - Day’s Average (All) - 800m: 48.33s | 34.31s

Randwick (Nov 23) - Day’s Average (All) - 742m: 44.79s | 34.37s

SOLVERE - Anthony Cummings

Nov 23 (Randwick) - plenty of early speed, went forward to take up the lead quite easily - looked to relax alright mid-trial and then was asked for an effort to extend in the straight and did so - clocked the fastest 1050m time of the morning to win by 5.75L - may of tired a little late but damage was done, nice win.

HAMAKI - Peter & Paul Snowden

Nov 23 (Randwick) - second up was a 0.26L 2nd to Never Been Kissed who went on to win a CL1 and then a 1600m Group 1 - this colt was given a freshen up, returning here where he led and won under no pressure from Tommy Berry - he was hard held and looked to only be there for some fitness before returning to the races - can win a maiden first up.

TWILIGHT AFFAIR - Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott

Nov 23 (Randwick) - she will go to the front on debut and be very hard to beat - three trials now, the latest two over 1000m+ and both of them nice wins, even her first over 742m was a nice win - won’t be short of fitness and can trust the stable - follow.
