Weekly Review - November 8 to November 14

CRANBOURNE - 8 November 2021

Michael Kent has a few un-raced gallopers going well at the jump outs and his 3yo REWARD FOR EFFORT x MRS TANGLES colt was no different, taking out Heat 10 on Nov 8 where he looked to be a really nice mover as he went past the talented Abseiler down the outside of the track. This was his third jump out now, following Oct 11 and Oct 25 (behind Xtra Gear) jump outs where he looks to have a nice, big action and we’re keen to follow him into his debut.


In the well-known A Kheir colours, YOU ESS ESS ARE won Heat 1 on Nov 8 after being heavily restrained in the early stages but closing nicely under minimal riding. The 3yo Russian Revolution filly had the two 600m/650m jump outs in early October, also travelling well in those and is one to follow.

AMINATU bolted in Heat 5 on Nov 8 in the clear fastest 800m time of the morning (by almost 0.5s) as she resumes from an 11-week let up.

HALVOYA has always been a jump out star, her win in Heat 9 on Nov 8 being no different as she cruised to an easy victory ahead of her return. Not sure if she’s a betting proposition, but we should monitor what BM58 she pops up in first up.

BENALLA - 8 November 2021


That’s now seven jump outs and trials for MALASANA, so he’s certainly not short of fitness or experience, but his 4L win in Heat 3 on Nov 8 over 1200m was certainly his most impressive bit of work. Wouldn’t surprise to see him head over to Hong Kong, but if he stays in Aus, we certainly need to follow where he pops up.

SQUID GAME just cruised to the line to finish 4th in Heat 9 on Nov 8 following another 4th placing in a Oct 25 and looks to be a smooth mover with some talent. Have to keep him in mind ahead of his debut.

Slick 6L win by LORD DOMINO in Heat 12 on Nov 8 over the 1000m, a very nice return for this 4yo gelding following a nice debut preparation with a 1st and a 2nd in the two runs. He looks to have returned well.

MOJO MUSIC closed like a nice horse in Heat 15 on Nov 8. He jumped well, but was taken to the rear of the field (by a long way) before then cruising to the line out wide to get within 2.25L of the winner. Super jump out.

CAULFIELD - 9 November 2021


We have to keep an eye on GAME TO LOVE, a $450k I Am Invincible filly who took out Heat 1 on Nov 9 in nice time after leading throughout before being pushed out late and extending away, hitting the line hard and going on with it past the line. This was her third jump out, having lead on Oct 26 as well as Nov 3 where she was also pushed out late but didn’t really respond. Her mum was Group placed over 1400m+, so she might be a filly that will get over a trip.

PAKENHAM - 9 November 2021


PRECIOUS SOCKS is worth keeping an eye on first up, having ran 2nd first up last preparation before an unlucky second up run when wide throughout but still managing to finishing 2.2L off the winner. She won Heat 5 on Nov 9 as she prepares for her second career preparation. Not a stand out, but one to monitor.

CHIEF CONDUCTOR is a very expensive colt, and his win in Heat 8 on Nov 9 (red) was that of a colt that might have a little bit of talent. He was given a push over the concluding stages, but liked the way he responded in his second jump out. He’s an I Am Invincible colt out of the Group 1 winning mare Snitzerland that was a $600k purchase. He moves alright.

ARARAT - 9 November 2021

COLOSSALE was a blackbook runner prior to being sold to Hong Kong, jumping out under his breeding Reward For Effort x Ballymoon. He clearly didn’t handle heading overseas, finishing 11th of 12 in his only run. His jump outs prior to going to HK were in 2020 including wins on Apr 20 and May 8 (ahead of The Inevitable). He lead in his first jump out back in Aus, and then just cruised the line under no urgency to finish 4th in Heat 6 on Nov 9. Always thought he was talented and was disappointed when he got sold to HK, so hopefully he’s returned to Aus with the same ability. Big watch.

UPDATE (Nov 20): He has had a name change to WHAT HAPPENED.


Not sure what to make of FREEDOM ESCAPE. His first jump out was only fair when beaten a long way, but his jump out win in Heat 3 on Nov 9 was in the fastest time of the morning and he held off previous maiden winner Longtimedreaming. He’s going to be one to keep in mind on debut,

PERMUTATION was 2nd to a 2YO in his Oct 25 but was never tested, backing that up with a classy win in Heat 11 on Nov 9 where he sat outside the leader throughout before showing some really nice closing speed to kick away and win quite comfortably in the end. Moved well in both his jump outs.

The un-raced ZEITAKUNA was pushed out over the concluding stages in Heat 16 on Nov 9, but there was a big gap back to 3rd and the 2nd horse goes alright, being the 90-rated Arcadia Prince. The 3yo jumped clearly the best of the field, going forward to lead before extending away late when asked to lengthen out. This was his third jump out this preparation since being gelded and easily his most impressive bit of work. A $100k Magic Millions purchase, he can go well on debut.

SALE - 12 November 2021


MAGIC DRUM bolted in Heat 3 on Nov 12 in the fastest 800m of the morning, which was also above the overall benchmark time. She ran 2nd first up last prep (on debut) before pulling up lame and then being spelled immediately. On the back of this we probably can expect her to show a bit first up this preparation, similar to her debut prep, and she might be at a price being from a small stable with the trainer as the sole owner.

In the second fastest time of the morning was the 3yo colt WRITEY O’PAL, taking out Heat 4 on Nov 12 comfortably and backing up his Oct 26 jump out at Pakenham when 2nd to Pick Za Beans with a big gap back to Super Thief in 3rd. He hasn’t beaten much here and was given a push int he straight, but he can’t do much more than win like this in nice time and he’s worth keeping in mind on debut as a result.

FLEMINGTON - 12 November 2021

Keen to follow TREPORTI now as a gelding. We mentioned the super form he had after an Oct 27 jump out, heading back to the jump outs to take out Heat 8 on Nov 12 where he was ridden with a bit more urgency and looked to respond well. With that form behind Invincible Caviar and Obfuscation along with some nice jump outs and the key gear change of becoming a gelding, he looks like he’ll be very hard to beat first up.


Slightly surprised JOSEYLIN hasn’t broken the maiden yet, jumping out in Heat 2 on Nov 12 following a freshen up after the three runs this preparation. She was alongside the Group 2 winner Yes Baby Yes past the line and travelled really well throughout where they clocked nice time for the day too.

We had a nice opinion of FIRST PLATOON before his debut, starting sub-$5 but only managing 7th of 11 and immediately put away following. Resuming now as a gelding, the 3yo looked slick again along the inside in Heat 3 on Nov 12 when never asked for an effort while those around him were pushed out. Expecting another jump out, but he’s one to monitor with him now being a gelding.

EBHAAR was super when winning Heat 5 on Nov 12. Thought her Randwick trial was impressive where she then accepted to run and opened $20+ but was scratched, coming down to VIC to jump out here and do so impressively again. She’s a 2yo I Am Invincible filly that’s a half-sister to the 5yo gelding Shotmaker that was 4.15L off the Blue Diamond back in 2019. Following where she pops up in VIC, guessing the Snowden’s have a target and keen to see where she goes.

Monitor GOOD LIFE DIVA who was making good ground out wide in Heat 8 on Nov 12 and was in front past the line. Only her first jump out this prep but she looked to move alright.

IRISH MIST was too good for them in Heat 12 on Nov 12, winning very comfortably in slick time despite never being asked for an effort.


Rosehill (Nov 9) —> Ave Overall Time: 55.13s | Ave L600m: 35.52s

Kembla Grange (Nov 10) —> Ave Overall Time (790m): 46.93s | Ave L600m: 33.76s

MOON DANCER - Kurt Goldman

Nov 9 (Rosehill) - 2nd here, but by only 0.02L and she is the only one in the field still a maiden - she showed super speed by Omar went in front of her to find the fence which forced her to overrace a bit but under a strong hold, hitting the line under no pressure at all from Kathy O’hara and looking the best of the field when closing - super bit of work in her return and she’s only lightly raced with 3 starts as a 4yo - only ever seen a Heavy track too…

ALLUSIONIST - Richard & Michael Freedman

Nov 9 (Rosehill) - beat a couple here that are better than maiden grade - showed tremendous gate speed to get straight to the lead and travelled strongly under a hold to hold on, nice 2L gap to 3rd as well - ran the fastest L600m of the day too (which is the key here) - can win a maiden first up.

KIPSBAY - Chris Waller

Nov 9 (Rosehill) - gelded - this was super - he jumped well from the inside and easily could’ve led but was hard held to take a sit and as a result overraced - followed the leader the whole way until the final 200m or so where he popped to the outside and ate into the margin within a matter of strides with easy - clocked the fastest time of the morning and a nice L600m too - well bred, out of a city winning mare - big watch first up as a gelding, keen to follow.

PIZARRO - John O'Shea

Oct 8 (Randwick) - really nice by this 3yo gelding, a half-brother to Bonvicini who was a Group 3 winner over 1400m - had the inside barrier, was ridden with no urgency early and just dropped back to a clear last before rocketing home in the straight to somehow finish within 1L of the winner, would’ve made up over 5L with ease - looks smart. Oct 19 (Randwick) - another super trial, travelling sweetly in some traffic midfield before finally getting some clear galloping room in the straight and coming home super - he’s smart.

Nov 11 (Randwick) - his third trial now, all of them impressive - he was ridden cold, hard held at the back of the field but the jockey couldn’t hold him as he slowly made ground out wide - he closed super over the L600m to get up and win - he’s ready to debut and will be fit and ready to go - keen to follow.

MISS GLENN - Richard & Michael Freedman

Oct 8 (Randwick) - well bred filly, by Written Tycoon out of the Group 1 placed mare Heatherly - she had a stack of speed here, straight to the front to lead and kick away for a slick 3.64L win in nice time (second fastest 1080m morning of the morning) - nice win.
