Weekly Review - November 7 to November 13

CRANBOURNE - 7 November 2022


Expected MUGEN to head over to Hong Kong following a very impressive Feb 28, but very glad to see him still here in Aus as a 4yo gelding (for now anyway). The son of Deep Field was back at the jump outs to record a solid win in Heat 8 on Nov 7, travelling very well throughout with cover before edging back to the inside and getting up to win ahead of Sonora. A $160k buy, this was a lovely first jump out back and quite keen to follow him into his upcoming prep.

WHITE RUSSIAN was horrible on debut as a 2yo, finishing 13L last over the 1400m but she did start a $3.90 SP favourite that day and was immediately put away following that run. Now a 3yo, the daughter of Fastnet Rock cruised to the line in a Oct 24 jump out prior to her win over the 1000m in Heat 18 on Nov 7. She was put under pressure here, so it was very encouraging to see her open up a gap on the field here and respond to the riding, especially over 1000m. Considering she was a $800k buy and the stable just purchased her full-brother for $300k last year, they and Coolmore clearly have an opinion of her and she’s better than what she produced on debut.


LONSDALEITE settled in a trailing position throughout the run but closed really well over the concluding stages to finish a close 2nd to the talented Ice Pick Nick in Heat 7 on Nov 7 - no blinkers were on either, which he’s worn in his last two starts (after going on when he won his maiden). Thought STAR HARMONY was another in this heat worth mentioning, finishing a close 3rd but not looking out of place in her first jump out back this prep and she’s still a maiden after only the 3x starts.

Liked the way KERMACETO closed into 3rd place in Heat 11 on Nov 7. Nice first jump out this prep for this 3yo filly, she’s worth monitoring into another jump out.

BENALLA - 7 November 2022


We mentioned RACKERMANN following his Jul 1 and Jul 8 jump outs, the latter alongside Demon Award who went on to run 2nd, 2nd and 1st in MDN’s. He didn’t get to the races, given more time and returning as a 3yo for another smart win, this time over 1000m in Heat 9 on Nov 7 where he clocked 1:02.03s, the third fastest time of the morning. He was ridden with no urgency, sitting last throughout the heat before working into it around the bend and showing that lovely turn of foot over the concluding stages to come down the outside fence and win, quite softly in the end too. He seems smart and this is a lovely first trial - we’ll watch for another prior to his debut.

WATCH LIST ARQANA has only been fair at best in her first two jump outs over 800m this prep, stepping up to 1200m in Heat 3 on Nov 7 where she recorded 5L win in impressive fashion. She was slow in the early stages, a clear last but looped the field around the bend and was dominate in the end. Treading carefully because of those first two jump outs, but we had to mention her anyway.

VINGEGAARD was a nice winner of Heat 6 on Nov 7, but it was the clear slowest 1000m time of the morning at 1:04.60s vs the days average of 1:02.64s. The 3yo Sooboog gelding also won a Sep 22 jump out and seems to move well enough to be one to keep an eye on, but he’s not necessarily a must bet on debut.

Nice return for TRIUMPHANTLY, a solid 2.5L victory in Heat 11 on Nov 7 over the 1000m. Monitoring for another jump out as he looks to gear up and finally break his maiden following an almost first career prep.

ARARAT - 7 November 2022


JENNI L’ARTISTE just fell out of the gates in a previous jump out at Ballarat on Oct 18, subsequently just walking to the line so ignore that run. She wasn’t away great in Heat 18 on Nov 7 but her work post the jump was super as she showed nice early speed to lead and then just cruised to the line over the 1000m. She clocked about average time for the morning, but she easily could’ve opened up a bigger margin if she was asked for any sort of effort, especially considering those behind her were ridden out but couldn’t keep up. A 4yo daughter of Turn Me Loose, she looks quite a nice mover.


We had RICH PARIS prior to her debut where she was slowly away and only marginally beaten when coming home strongly, running the 6th fastest L400m/L200m of the meeting. Given more time, she returned in Heat 3 on Nov 7 for a strong win where she left the gates beautifully, led them up and went to line under a very strong hold. Lovely first jump out back so we’ll follow her into (hopefully) another prior to the first up run.

RUNNING ON TIME closed well from a clear last last to finish a close 4th in Heat 5 on Nov 7, a nice bit of work in the filly’s second jump out having also finished 4th in an Oct 4 jump out behind Dream Inherit and Whatafox (since 1st MDN by 5L). Unsure of the quality she was against in this jump out but as a $165k buy, she looks to move nice enough to be keeping in mind on debut.

BELLE ET RICHE was super in Heat 6 on Nov 7, going whooshka over the final stages to win very comfortably in the third fastest 850m time of the morning.

SUBCONSCIOUS was a slick winner of Heat 13 on Nov 7, likewise NANCHO who closed super into 3rd place.

PAKENHAM - 8 November 2022


She was ridden out, but didn’t mind the way ELLY DEE closed on Magical Slipper in Heat 5 on Nov 8, especially considering she was a very impressive 3.2L maiden winner in her previous prep. One to keep an eye on.

CASTERTON - 9 November 2022


Loved the work of IS IT ME late in Heat 4 on Nov 9, especially past the line with the jockey having a cheeky look over the shoulder as he ran past Honour De Hero and Playing It Safe with relative ease, both of whom are previous winners. He was midfield but wide throughout this heat so very encouraging to see him full of running still late over the 900m, especially past the line which is something we always love. He had the two previous Warrnambool jump outs on the synthetic tracks on Oct 19 and Nov 2, which are hard to gauge but that second one was very pleasing to the eye as well. A 3yo son of Iffraaj that was a $40k buy, he looks like a nice mover and while he might get over some distance, still keen to follow him on debut at the very least.

MORNINGTON - 9 November 2022


A third jump out now for BEL THRONUM and it was another nice bit of work. She left the gates well in Heat 5 on Nov 9 and showed some nice early speed to take up the lead along the rail and led from start to finish to win with relative ease in the end where she was put under no pressure. Having had a two previous jump outs on Oct 12 over 900m and Nov 2 over 750m, this bit of work over 1050m will really tip her off and have her primed for her return to the races. She’s a filly that can go well when resuming.


The blinkers went on for MUSASHI and he went bang, winning Heat 7 on Nov 9 by a good margin over the 1050m but did clock the slowest time of the morning.

BENDIGO - 10 November 2022


Lovely win by FOXPATH in Heat 3 on Nov 10. He was slowish out of the gates but showed nice early speed to take up the lead and kicked away late to record a soft victory in the end under minimal jockey pressure, recording the second fastest time of the morning in the process. He closed well in a previous Oct 27 jump out where he was very quietly ridden, finishing an easy 5th. He’s a 5yo horse by Foxwedge, out of Pathways who was owned by Mr R J Patterson as well, so he must be a home bred and he’s certainly been very patient with this guy and he it looks like it might pay off.


CELUI was a $200k buy for Brett Stanley and he remains the sole owner of this 2yo Toronado colt who has now clocked up two jump out wins, the first on Sep 22 and now the latest in Heat 4 on Nov 10 where he won in the fastest time of the morning. The jockey spent the last 150m of this heat looking over either side of him as his colt kicked away. Nice win, but always tread carefully with these 2yo’s so keeping on the watch list.

FLEMINGTON (POLY TRACK) - 11 November 2022


HOOFS DON’T LIE was 3rd on debut behind Thron Bone and Ghaanati before finishing 5th to Giga Kick, so he’s got some very hand late-2yo form on the board. Given a break and since been gelded, the 3yo son of Shalaa returned on the synthetic track in Heat 1 on Nov 11 to finish 2nd. He’ll have another jump out so keeping an eye out for that, but a nice return as a gelding here.

FLEMINGTON (INSIDE GRASS) - 11 November 2022


IMASUPERSTAR was in the market on debut but very green, not handling the turns at all and travelling very wide throughout as he was a bit disappointing in the end. He returned for a quiet jump out on Oct 14 when winning before winning again in Heat 15 on Nov 11 where he was pushed out and asked to extend late, doing so late and past the line in an encouraging performance. Like that he was put under pressure here rather than just cruising to the line under a hold considering he was green on debut, so it looks like his manners have improved over the break and he’s come back in good order as a 3yo. Happy to follow him first up.

We mentioned the NZ import RHEINBERG following his Oct 28 jump out win where he looked a big boy as he strode over the top, albeit in a small field. He was back at the jump outs in Heat 18 on Nov 11, jumping beautifully to take up the lead along the rail and cruising the line under a hold, winning with ease and in nice time for the morning. He moves well and can go well in his Australia debut.


A 2yo running one of the top times for the morning is always impressive, SASSY BOOM winning Heat 8 on Nov 11 in the third fastest time of the morning. The 2yo daughter of Spirit Of Boom was speed in the early stages, taking up the lead as she held that too and through the line to win quite comfortably. A $155k Magic Millions purchased that’s owned solely by females, we expect another jump out but watch for her going towards the Magic Millions…

JUNGLE JIM looks in good order ahead of his return, winning Heat 9 on Nov 11 with ease.

RANDWICK - 8 November 2022


RICHON is an intriguing runner, coming from Trial 6 on Nov 8 where he finished 3rd but he is still only a maiden and the trial was open class, so he was in amongst much better company. He was good through and past the line here as well, backing up his Oct 28 trial where he looked a class above after travelling wide throughout. He was 2nd to Promitto on debut (who won a Group 2 at his next start) before running in the Group 2 Todman where he had a slow recovery and subsequently spelled. He’s come back in nice enough order and will go well in almost any maiden first up.

It looks like Mark Newnham has quite a smart filly on his hands in BETSY’S FLAG. The 3yo daughter of Astern was heavily restrained in the early stages of Trial 13 on Nov 8 and forced to sit at the rear of the field while under a strong hold. It was her work over the concluding stages that really caught the eye, getting to the outside of the track and exploding to victory, recording a very dominant 1.44L victory with relative ease in the end. Looking back on her Oct 28 trial, she got a lovely run in behind the speed where she just cruised until 200m where she was pulled back to the inside and exploded to the front, doing her best work past the line. Quite keen to following this filly, she moves really well.


BLANC DE BLANC was a smart winner of Trial 4 on Nov 8, extending away late to record a quite dominant 3.2L victory. The daughter of I Am Invincible was a $360k purchase for James Harron.

MICRO was super in Trial 6. He was slow-ish away before travelling in behind the leader but having no where to go in the straight until the final 150m or so where he then burst through to get to the front with relative ease. He’s only got 1x victory from 15x starts but he’s Group 2 placed and clearly a talented 4yo gelding.

ALL TIME LEGEND was a very smart winner of Trial 9, coming from last to fly over the top despite being hard held throughout.

HI DUBAI led from start to finish in Trial 11, recording a very soft win in the end but it was slow time for the morning. Slick first trial this prep.

We’ve mentioned VICTORIA JANE a couple of times following trials where she’s now had the three different preps. In her first prep she only had the 1x trial, winning over 800m by 2.3L on May 10. Her second prep saw her win a trial on May 2 over 736m prior to a 1050m trial on May 16 on a Heavy(8) track where she was only fair. Given more time again, she just cruised into 3rd place in Trial 12, her first trail back this prep. She’s a full-sister to Media Sensation (winner of the Group 1 NZ Guineas over 1600m) and she’s worth following into another trial.
