Weekly Review - October 11 to October 17

CRANBOURNE - 11 October 2021

OUT OF ISOLATION is talented. The 4yo gelding returning to the jump outs in Heat 9 on Oct 11 (red and white) following his quietly ridden Sep 20 jump out when 4th. In this heat however, he sat off them before powering home down the middle of the track and looked as though he was going to explode with a super turn of foot. He was a bit green, but he closed super alongside Don’t Doubt Nic and they had a bit of 3rd and 4th. Wouldn’t surprise us to see him making a winning return following his 71-week spell. Keen to follow, he goes well.

The win of MASTER FONTANA in Heat 14 on Oct 11 when clocking a very slick 59.37s was an impressive bit of work as the 3yo looks to return to the races, potentially as a gelding this time in. He debuted back in July on a Soft7 track over 1330m and was a bit disappointing despite only finishing 4.15L off Sunfall who then went on to win a BM70 and finish 3rd (by 3.5L) to Forgot You at Moonee Valley. Following a quiet Sep 27 800m jump out, he travelled up beautifully along the inside here to extend away when given a slight rev up to put lengths on the field quite easily. He looks to have a nice action, but may be one to follow as he gets over further being by a mare that got out over 2000m herself. Super jump out regardless.


Very excited to see where MARABI can get to this preparation. The 5yo mare is 3 wins from 3 starts with a combined winning margin of 15.5L… she’s very talented and her win in Heat 5 on Oct 11 was a lovely return.

Margin wise, SOUND BUFF was an easy winner of Heat 6 on Oct 11 but thought the 5yo mare back in 4th did it extremely easy to the line and looked super to the line. A full-sister to Hunamosa, HUNSANGEL just cruised throughout this heat and went to the line untouched while those around her weren’t doing it as easily. We’ve seen this mare at a few jump outs now, the latest prior to this was on Jul 12 when 2nd to a ridden out Major Impact. Only her first jump out, keeping an eye on her.

MASTERFUL made up a lot of ground in a jump out back on May 17 despite being put under no pressure at any stage, he did it with ease there. Put away following that, the 3yo Deep Field colt sat on speed in Heat 8 on Oct 11 (orange) before cruising to the line down the middle of the track in testing conditions. He looked to have a bit left to offer and is one to watch for another bit of work prior to his debut.

PENSHURST - 11 October 2021

OTHER STAREDOWN (red) was under a ridiculous hold throughout Heat 9 on Oct 11, defeating impressive maiden winner Nabbed. He was never allowed to fully extend and was clearly a class above this filed. One to keep an eye on depending on where he pops up, most likely another jump out and then a 1400m BM64 first up.

RICH BAY is one at (hopefully) good odds that we’re going to have to keep in mind. The 4yo gelding was 2nd to Mask Up in a Sep 27 jump out (with that runner then winning a maiden by 2.8L) and finishing in front of the 69-rated Glassey Miss. He was then 2nd in Heat 10 on Oct 11 over 800m but was heavily restrained in the early stages to not go forward and take a sit, travelling wide throughout and overdoing it as a result. He was asked for a little bit of an effort in the straight and looked to respond well enough. He’s not going to be a confident play, but hopefully one at odds we can spec.

CAULFIELD - 12 October 2021


STARRY LEGEND backed up his first up BM70 win with an impressive jump out win in Heat 1 on Oct 12, clocking a very slick time that was the clear fastest of the day. The horse he beat first up, The Billionaire, came out and won a BM68 in SA on the weekend by 2.3L. If he’s in a BM70 again second up, he’ll hard to beat.

BENDIGO - 12 October 2021

A two time feature of our reviews from her jump outs back on Jul 6 and Jul 23, the now-3yo Kym Hann filly under the breeding EXTREME CHOICE x AURA D’ORO was back to the jump outs after a let up and again impressed, winning Heat 4 on Oct 12 in the fastest time of the morning. She bounced straight to the front here, cruising to the line under minimal riding and was only challenged late by the unraced Zedemski. Super bit of work and very keen to follow her into her debut and debut preparation.


His win in Heat 1 on Oct 12 marked five jump outs for I AM NEWS, continually showing ability but not sure what to make of him having so many jump outs and them all 1-2 weeks apart. Going to keep him in mind as his first up run last prep on debut was really good at Sandown, he might be capable of something similar first up here which would see him go very close to winning any maiden. He certainly won’t be short of fitness…

PAKENHAM - 12 October 2021


A maiden win can’t be too far away for SPIRIT OF GIVING, taking out Heat 4 on Oct 12 as he sat off the speed before coming over the top late. He’s hard to trust, but if he finds the right country maiden he should be able to go close.

Clocking the fastest 800m jump out of the morning in her first bit of work back was OUR HEIDI, taking out Heat 5 on Oct 12 comfortably ahead of recent maiden winner Blazerro. She debuted back in June when 2nd to the smart Ranveer and ran a nice 2nd there with a 2L gap to 3rd (who has won 2x races since). This was only her first jump out back, but the exact bit of work we wanted to see to follow her into her first up run. Hopefully another jump out first and then to the races. Following.

MORNINGTON - 13 October 2021


Lovely bit of work from the 3yo colt UNFLINCHING, closing well to finish a very close 2nd in Heat 16 on Oct 13. A son of I Am Invincible who was a $280k purchase from the MM Gold Coast Yearling Sale, he looked to be a nice mover once he got some clear room in the straight having over-raced for most of the first part of the jump out as he ran in restricted room. Only his first jump out, but we’re happy to follow him - expecting another jump out prior to debuting this prep.

GEELONG - 13 October 2021


Another jump out win for KITANLAD, stepping back to the 600m for a win in Heat 4 on Oct 13. She didn’t do her usual jump and run style here though, hard held throughout and was in amongst a few leaders which was good to see. Three jump out wins and she looks ready to go to the races now.

KYNETON - 13 October 2021


In only his first jump out back this preparation, the 3yo gelding HALLOWED GROUND won Heat 4 on Oct 13. As he showed very good gate speed to go straight to the lead, he was restrained in the early stages and was well held throughout as the horse outside of him was hard ridden and no match at all. He ran good time for the day too. One to keep an eye on but hard to trust these country jump outs sometimes.

After a pair of jump outs back in October 2020, the 4yo mare HAESTA returned for a jump out on May 4 when 2nd and then given another break before returning for a big win in Heat 7 on Oct 13. She was given a push in this heat but really extended away to win comfortably, which is all you can ask for. She was a $10k Tasmanian Yearling purchase and one we’ll keep an eye on to see where she ends up.

TATURA - 14 October 2021

DUN WARRIOR looks like he has a stack of talent. The 3yo gelding won jump outs on Sep 28 and Oct 5 by a huge margin to back up this 3L win in Heat 3 on Oct 14 over the 1100m in a very slick time that was the quickest of the 3x on the day. Very simple win, jumping well straight to the front before kicking away around the bend when given a little tickle and eased down late. He was a clear class above. He was only a $25k purchase at the Inglis Online Sales and is a full-brother to the 6 start maiden Dundeel Star.

WHERE’S THE HUNTER didn’t win, but he’s now put together some nice trials and jump outs to suggest he has enough talent to win on debut. He went to the line with subsequent maiden winner My Yankee Girl in a Sep 20 trial before leading all the way in a Sep 28 Bendigo jump out when hard held and his 2nd in Heat 10 on Oct 14 where he pushed forward but was forced to hold a spot 3-wide throughout. He was given a little push in the straight but he looked to respond only just being overran late (probably tiring considering he was wide throughout). He’s ready to debut, expect him to go well.

MISTERGUITARS clocked the fastest 850m time of the morning and put in a very good performance as he won Heat 12 on Oct 14, you won’t see many better trial wins. He just cruised to the line and never looked like losing. He comes out of the Sep 20 trial where Where’s My Hunter (from Heat 10) and My Yankee Girl who has subsequently won, just doing it easy there and not asked for any effort. He is a half-brother to It'sourtime who is already Group 2 and Group 3 placed in his short 5-start career as a 4yo. Would be surprised if he doesn’t go very close to winning on debut.


Coming from Heat 3 on Oct 14 and finished 2nd to Dun Warrior was previous blackbook feature in PAGAN, previously featuring under his breeding Shamexpress x Spray after some nice jump outs on Sep 17 (red) and Sep 28. He was aware poorly here, but quickly mustered speed to sit just in behind the leaders where he was asked to extend late and looked really green in doing so. It was a nice trial without being super.

Fair win by OUR LONE STAR in Heat 4 on Oct 14 over the 1100m, sitting in behind the speed before coming down the middle of the track to win as easy as you like. He was a clear class above this lot.

Thought LATE NIGHT REWARD held his own against the multiple time winner Smart Design in Heat 8 on Oct 14 where they clocked the second fastest 850m trial of the morning and gapped 3rd by 5L. These two runners went straight to the front together and left the rest of the field in their wake. Smart Design got the better late but they had a bit on everyone else. This backs up his Sep 28 win at Bendigo and he is certainly one to watch out for on debut.

SYSTEMTIC featured after an Oct 1 jump out and was good again in Heat 11 on Oct 14 without standing out, finishing 2nd but given a push throughout the straight. He can run well on debut but not one we’ll be piling into, especially if he’s short.

FLEMINGTON - 15 October 2021

We mentioned that we liked the way WHYWHYWHYDELILAH moved in Sep 23 jump out following a Sep 17 synthetic jump out, with the 3yo filly again jumping out well in Heat 1 on Oct 15 where only the talented Yulong Command beat her and they clocked the second fastest time of the morning. They also spaced Sound and Mahamedeis in the process. Very keen to follow her into her debut, she is flying and think she will go very close on debut (if she goes to a maiden).

After bolting in by a massive margin in an Oct 1 synthetic jump out, DEMPSTER could’ve easily done the same in Heat 10 on Oct 15 but the jockey wasn’t interested in winning at all as he pulled him up over the final 200m or so to just walk over the line but still managing to finish 2nd. He looks to be resuming gelded and with the blinkers on and is certainly travelling well enough to go close first up this preparation. Expect him to be on speed or leading too which makes an attractive betting proposition first up. Following.


Nice win by the expensive colt QUINLAN in Heat 3 on Oct 15, extending away late and looking to have a really nice action. He also had a nice Sep 20 trial in NSW behind Victory Moments (who was favourite on debut but failed) and Zambezi River (2nd on debut) and looks to have some talent. Can’t ignore the fact that he’s a $600k Magic Millions colt that’s a half-brother to Meuse out of the mare Precious Lorraine that was a talented horse herself winning a Group 3 over 2400m and finishing 8th in the Oaks. This colts a nice mover.

FOR REAL LIFE travelled wide and quietly out the back in an Oct 1 jump out against more experienced horses, but took a different approach in Heat 4 on Oct 15 as she went to the front to lead and then extended away in the straight to win quite comfortably in the end but in slowish time for the day. She looked to move well enough though once she was asked to extend and open up and it certainly won’t shock to see her run alright upon resumption.

REBELLIOUS BELLE’s Oct 1 jump out on the synthetic was just fair, but her jump out back on the grass was super as she just kept extending away to win Heat 9 on Oct 15 by several lengths. She didn’t break any records time wise, but regardless, the un-raced 4yo mare moved well enough here to suggest she can go well once she finally does make her debut.

The 3rd horse in this heat was OASIS GOLD, a previous feature in our reviews form May jump outs as a 2yo. She looked to tire late after travelling on speed here but wasn’t ever really asked for an effort. And then back further in 5th was APOLLO JOSH, another previous feature of our reviews who just travelled quietly out the back and as never in it. He resumes here gelded. Both of these runners were only have their first jump out back and remain on the watch list but we do want to see a bit more from them in their next jump outs.


ZARASTRO - Chris Waller (James McDonald)

Sep 28 (Rosehill) - this Coolmore colt looks smart and that debut 2nd to Paulele reads really well now - was a $1,050,000 Magic Millions buy - had a trial 6 weeks after that debut and split Profiteer and Hilal - ridden with no urgency out of the gates, taken back and was throwing the head around wanting to go on with it but the jockey wanted him to have a quiet time - got gaps in the straight but was never asked for an effort at all - moved super well.

He was a previous runner with those notes above from his Sep 28 trial, adding in the below notes from his Oct 11 trial:

Oct 11 (Rosehill) - he’s smart, very keen to follow - jumped super, straight to the front and was way too classy - if he goes to a maiden first up, would be surprised if he doesn’t win.


Oct 15 (Warwick Farm - Synthetic) - wide and on speed throughout, finishing 2nd under no pressure with horses better than maiden grade around him - bolted in a previous Warwick Farm trial on Sep 21 by 2L and was good back on Sep 7 winning on the Warwick Farm synthetic as well - expect to go well first up now.
