Weekly Review - October 10 to October 16
CRANBOURNE - 10 October 2022
SMALL TOWN HERO had a pair of NZ jump outs prior to coming over to Aus, finishing 3rd on May 25 and 2nd on Aug 9. He stepped out over 800m on Sep 26 when 2nd to The Extreme Cat (since 4th MDN) in a nice bit of work. The 3yo Shamexpress colt then stepped out in the star studded Heat 2 on Oct 10, finishing 5th behind the likes of Coolangatta, Bella Nipotina and Esta La Roca. He didn’t have a lot of room here, sitting in behind the speed but certainly didn’t look out of place, holding ground as they stepped on the gas over the concluding stages. He certainly looks to have the talent to go well first up.
That’s two lovely bits of work from MAXIUM VELOCITY, a 3rd placing on Sep 26 behind Tick Tock Boom (since 2nd BM58) followed by his win in Heat 6 on Oct 10 that will have him ready to go once he gets back to the track. A BM58 would be the ideal scenario as he resumes from this 7-week let up having last raced in a 0-62 at the start of August.
IMPACT A LOT was jogging up and down on the spot and looked super throughout Heat 3 on Oct 10 until the final 200-300m or so when she was eased out of the jump out. She’s a 3yo filly by Real Impact that’s resuming having had the 2x runs as a 2YO that included debuting in the Listed Redoute’s Choice Stakes at Caulfield before failing at Sandown. Stable clearly had an opinion of her to run her in those sorts of races and this being her first jump out back, have to monitor.
FROSTED ROMANCE took out Heat 9 on Oct 10 in good order, the 3yo daughter of Frosted returning nicely enough here to warrant being one to monitor into another jump out.

MURTOA - 11 October 2022
LIPAROO has been travelling comfortably at the jump outs and did so in amongst some good company in his latest jump out, finishing 3rd in Heat 1 on Oct 11 behind Court Deep and Mac ’N’ Cheese. The 3yo Toronado gelding sat outside Court Deep throughout this heat, cruising to the line over the concluding stages. He cruised to the line in his Aug 23 and Sep 28 jump outs as well, but was pushed out in his middle jump out on Sep 12 where he showed a nice turn of foot to come from the back of the field to finish a close 2nd. He’ll be well educated and being trained by Austy Coffey, he’ll pop up in a country maiden where he can go well. Hoping he’s a nice price to have a small bet.
CORNER OFF was 3-wide with no cover on debut at Cranbourne on the Heavy(9) track, tiring late to finish 3rd when starting a $4 SP favourite. That debut run was back in June as a 2yo, so the now-3yo filly has been given plenty of time and now looks ready to head back to the races on the back of an impressive jump out win in Heat 9 on Oct 11. The daughter of Toronado sat outside the leader here before kicking away in the straight as she was put under pressure, a very encouraging performance that will really bring her on. She will improve second up and we’re happy to follow.
MORNINGTON - 12 October 2022
We had GOLD GOVERNOR in the BlackBook prior to his debut run where he led but was overran late to finish back in 4th. Given a 3-week freshen up, he returned for a big win in Heat 3 on Oct 12 over the 900m with the key gear change being the blinkers going on and there is no doubt that he has improved since his debut. Lovely tick over jump out and expect an improved performance second up with the blinkers going on. Worth giving another chance.
A pair of jump out wins now for EMERALD JACK and he looks in good order ahead of his return. He won an 800m jump out on Sep 26 at Sandown quite comfortably, backing that up with a smart win in Heat 4 on Oct 12. He was slowly away, but slowly edged his way forward before being asked for an effort at the top of the straight where he responded and bolted away. He was 5th on debut with some nice form coming from that race, the winner running 2nd at Flemington at his next start while 2nd and 3rd have since won MDN’s while 4th has been placed twice since. He was $31 that day so we might get another nice price first up where he’d be worth a spec.
We’ll monitor BEL THRONUM into another jump out, the 3yo filly sitting outside Shalaman throughout Heat 1 on Oct 12 before only being overran late by The Inferno. This was a nice return jump out here in good company so certainly have to follow her.
ECHUCA - 12 October 2022
It’s hard to get a real gauge on CAMPASPE RUN but two wins ahead of his debut is all you can. He bolted in a Oct 4 jump out at Wangaratta against poor opposition prior to his easy win in Heat 10 on Oct 12 where he looked a class above Shadowy Drive late despite that runner being mid prep having finished in the first five (including three placings) in all 5x of his runs this prep. There won’t be heaps of confidence, but this was nice enough to be keeping an eye on him.
TERANG - 12 October 2022
INCANTO ROSE’s first two jump outs on Sep 26 and Oct 3 were only fair, but once she stepped up to the 1000m in Heat 14 on Oct 12, she really improved and showed some talent. The 3yo Per Incanto filly was away a bit slow, settling to the back of the field before stealing a bit of ground as she cut the corner, getting on the back of the leader until the final 300m or so where she found some room to inside and exploded to the front when put under a little bit of pressure. She went straight past the leader here with ease, showing a lovely turn of foot. On the back of this work, she’s one to monitor into a debut.
FLEMINGTON - 14 October 2022
WONDERFUL TONIGHT is certainly back and she looks in super order. She’s put together two lovely jump outs now, a win on Oct 7 followed up by a close 2nd in Heat 7 on Oct 14 where they clocked the third fastest time of the morning. There is no doubt she’s got plenty of gate speed, jumping straight to the front in both of her jump outs now, going to the line under strong holds in both. As mentioned last week, her debut 3rd reads super not considering it was behind Zouzarella (1st) and Zapateo (2nd), so there is no doubt she has talent and it’ll be a matter of whether she’ll be ready to go first up after such a long spell. A $450k I Am Invincible mare, she looks in good order and we think she’ll be ready to go first up.
RAIN LORD was up to his usual tricks at the jump outs, bolting in Heat 6 on Oct 14 in slick time as he led from start to finish with ease. He wasn’t held back here like his Sep 30 jump out ahead of Phoenix Global (who was coming off a 0-64 win only two weeks earlier) and Poetic Whisper (since 4th MDN). As a 2yo, he was beaten by a 3yo in both of his career starts at SP’s of $3.50 and $1.10, that latest defeat being a bit worrying but he did pull up with thumps so had excuses. Now a 3yo and with the key gear change of now being a gelding, he should be able to finally get his maiden victory early this preparation. Hoping he goes country for an easy kill where he should be hard to beat.
