Weekly Review - October 18 to October 24

CRANBOURNE - 18 October 2021


DREAM WITNESS has always shown some talent at the jump outs, taking out Heat 3 on Oct 18 in the fastest 800m time of morning and doing so comfortably after a solid 3rd on Oct 4. She was poor on debut but did start $5.50 that day and improved nicely second up when 3rd at Sale. Given time, she looks to have returned in nice order ahead of her preparation as a 3yo now.

SAINT LOFT won as well as you could want for a first jump out back, taking out Heat 5 on Oct 18 but a few lengths but it was in slowish overall time. The 3yo gelding had a pair of jump outs in June/July but didn’t make it to the races, given more time where he returned in this jump out to win impressively. He’s a son of Written Tycoon that was a $180k purchase at the 2020 Magic Millions Gold Coast sale, so one to keep an eye on for his next jump out prior to debuting.

Another nice jump out for the USA import LIGHTHOUSE, the 3yo mare taking out Heat 6 on Oct 18 well after travelling wide throughout. She does have a record of 9 starts for 3 wins and 3 placings with $480k of prize money, so she’s certainly not short on talent but looks to be moving well ahead of her Australian debut.

FOXINGWITHFACTS missed the kick in his Oct 11 jump out and as a result was always at the back and never in it. Away cleaner here in Heat 12 on Oct 18 over 1000m, the 3yo gelding was away much better and as a result was able to get in a nice position on speed along the rail. He was given only a slight push in the straight and looked to have the rest of the field covered as they were pushed out and he extended away. Nice bit of work worth keeping in mind.

AVOCA - 19 October 2021

Now named, EXTREME EMOTION put in another impressive performance following her previous jump outs on Jul 6, Jul 23 and Oct 12 under her breeding Extreme Choice x Aura D’Oro. She finished 5th in Heat 7 on Oct 19 over the 1000m, but she was never let out from a strong hold at any stage as the rest of those around her were given a niggle. She jumped beautifully, easily could’ve led but was restrained by the jockey to take a sit and just cruised throughout. She looked to be a really nice mover and was only jogging. A $150k purchase, she looks very talented and very keen to follow her into her debut.

Can’t ignore the wins of MISS CUMBERLAND, recording three several length wins on Sep 15, Oct 5 and now in Heat 18 on Oct 19. She has some nice early speed, taking up the lead in all of her jump outs so expect race day to be no different but we’ll need to be mindful that she might just be one of those jump and run types that tire late. In saying that, she didn’t look to tire late here and the 3x jump outs should have her ready to go on debut. She’s worth following, can’t ignore these jump out wins and if she brings this to her debut, she’ll run well.

OTHER MR PRISTINE has consistently shown a stack of speed in his jump outs and this certainly hasn’t changed despite his change of stables to Andrew Bobbin, bolting in Heat 11 on Oct 19 by a massive margin. Last seen in a Mar 9 official trial, finishing 3rd when leading throughout with the horses who overran him being Arroance (went on to win a MDN and BM64) and Don’t Doubt Nic (who went on to win a MDN by 2L). Only his first jump out for the new stable, so certainly one to keep an eye on.

Massive win for KERIOTH in Heat 12 on Oct 19, clocking the fastest 800m time of the morning in the process. This follows a 2nd in a Oct 13 jump out and it looks as though he could go alright in a BM58 first up. He did win a MDN first up over 1100m last preparation at a very short $2.05 SP.

YULONG SOVEREIGN certainly looks to be back, pulling up with an irregular heart rhythm in his last start and put away immediately. Prior to that run last prep he won well first up when resuming gelded, and after his slick win in Heat 13 on Oct 19 over 800m in nice time, he can resume in a winning way again this preparation.

HALLOWED GROUND certainly looks to have a motor under the hood, showing a nice turn of foot when asked for an effort to win Heat 16 on Oct 19 and to show a different dimension to his racing style than just being jump and run in his Oct 13 jump out. He led again here, but responded when asked for an effort in the straight by John Allen and clocked a nice time in the process. Happy to follow him into a debut, this was a nice bit of work.

In typical Kylie Vella style, ADMIRALS AHOY was very quietly ridden and hard held to finish 4th in Heat 17 on Oct 19, his first bit of work since a Feb 23 jump out. He’s by Brazen Beau and is the 4yo half-brother to the very talented Admiral’s Joker with Kylie having a bit of success with the family, especially early in their careers, such as the 5yo half-brother First Mate (3rd, 2nd, 1st in first three career runs) and 6yo half-sister Shantara (2nd, 1st, 1st in first three career runs). One we must follow, and it wouldn’t surprise to see him debut without another jump out.

MORNINGTON - 20 October 2021

Another nice jump out from UNFLINCHING, backing up his Oct 13 run with a win in Heat 7 on Oct 20. He left the gates well to get to the front with ease but got the head up a bit as the jockey took a strong hold. He was headed in the lead but cornered well and responded to some very slight urgings from the jockey to get back in front and hold on by a length or so in nice time for the day. As mentioned previously, he is a $280k I Am Invincible colt and looks to have some talent. The slight query is on him over-racing at the start, but think he’ll have enough talent to overcome this.


It was only her first jump out this preparation, but couldn’t help but notice how casual the jockey was looking over the shoulder aboard WOLF SKILL in Heat 8 on Oct 20 as the 3yo filly just cruised past the Tolson runner after stalking it throughout. The two horses outside her were hard ridden as well and she did it very easily. Keeping an eye out for another jump out.

MOE - 20 October 2021


SOUND BUFF now has three jump out and trial wins from three attempts, taking out Heat 8 on Oct 20 to go along with jump out wins on Sep 20 and Oct 11. He went straight to the front to lead and went through the line under no jockey pressure at all to win quite easily over the 1000m. He hasn’t beaten much though, a very weak field here but still some nice wins.

Form wise, FRANKIE TWO ANGLES is going to need to improve quite a bit but we can’t ignore his 4.5L win in Heat 11 on Oct 20 as he switches to the Gavin Bedggood stable following a 3-week freshen up after three runs this preparation. He sat in the back half of the field out wide here before being whipped around the field and pushed out but really responding to find lengths on the field. No blinkers on that he’s been wearing, expect a BM58 first up and maybe one at a price.

Three wins now for JUICE BOX ahead of her debut, taking out Heat 13 on Oct 20 quite well after sitting in behind the speed. She’ll be one to spec at big odds, she’s travelling well enough to give a sight on debut.

FLEMINGTON - 22 October 2021


Beaten a long way by the speedy Estoril Park on Oct 8, WANDA’S LEGACY returned in Heat 9 on Oct 22 to go to the line with Plucky Pirouette and High ’N’ Dry, both of who are much better than maiden grade. She held her own in this heat, through and past the line in an encouraging piece of work to suggest she’s come back better this preparation. One to keep in mind.

Three jump outs now for the filly NO BABY NO including a 3rd on Oct 1, a close 2nd on Oct 15 and a slick win in Heat 10 on Oct 22 alongside the talented maiden winner Jump The Broom in one of the quickest times for the day. She’s a half-sister to the group winning mare Yes Baby Yes and has shown enough at the jump outs to suggest she can be competitive on debut.

Lovely jump out by TOFFEE DOLL as the 5yo mare swooped the field in Heat 14 on Oct 22 to win well in the end.

JUPITUS debuted back in July as a 2yo, finishing 8th to Crystal Vain and returned for his second preparation with a jump out to finish 4th in Heat 16 on Oct 22 behind Crystal Vain. The son of Sebring was a $180k purchase and it looks as though he’s returning as a gelding here as a 3yo, dropping back to last shortly after jumping and just cruising throughout but showing some nice closing speed, especially past the line as he cruised up alongside the leaders and did it all relatively easy. Only his first jump out back, but he looks to be going well.



Oct 18 (Hawkesbury) - impressive but didn’t beat much - sat in behind the speed very hard held before getting the gap at the top of the straight and powering over the top in a few strides to win comfortably, margin doesn’t do the win justice - goes well.

CAPO STRADA - James Cummings

Oct 18 (Hawkesbury) - fastest 800m time of the day at 46.96s - very well bred 3yo colt, out of the mare Estee who was Group 2 placed - sat quiet in behind the speed here before coming up the inside along the rail to just get up late in the last few strides, but wasn’t ridden with any real urgency - nice return.

ICING ON THE CAKE - Peter & Paul Snowden

Oct 19 (Randwick) - slick 1045m time, was restrained and forced to take a sit out wide, came home well over the top of the final stages - was given a tickle in the final 200m or so and looked to respond well - won well.

MISTY DREAMS - Peter & Paul Snowden

Oct 19 (Randwick) - jumped from the widest barrier, went back and travelled wide throughout - came wide in the straight and closed super, had a really nice turn of foot and made up a lot of ground without any jockey pressure - nice bit of work.

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.

TAVI L’AMOUR (NZ) - John O'Shea

Oct 19 (Randwick) - away slowly from the inside barrier, dropping back to last but coming home like a rocket as she weaved through the field up the straight to make up heaps of ground to finish 3rd by only 1.5L - super trial - she’s a half-sister to Queen Of Diamonds who a Group 2 and 3 in NZ.

CAPTIVARE - Chris Waller

Oct 22 (Rosehill) - reared at the start and lost lengths straight after jumping - just cruised at the back of field before weaving his way through in the straight to somehow finish 2nd and within 3L of a breakaway leader - was 2nd in first trial to Zarastro on Oct 11, who is a nice horse - 11 starts for 0 wins and 7 placings doesn’t give a lot of confidence, but can win the right race.

PETULANT - Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes

Oct 22 (Rosehill) - jumped clearly the best, straight to the front before being joined by a couple of others and then kicked away around the bend to put lengths on them besides the 2nd horse who was ridden out, a big 6L gap to 3rd - super trial, did it very easy.

MAROONIYAH - Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes

Oct 22 (Rosehill) - super impressive, nice time for the morning and an easy 2.6L win that could’ve been a lot further if she was asked for an effort instead of being eased down late - she sat outside the leader here until the bend where she then gave a kick and put up lengths within a matter of strides - half sister to Shotmaker, she goes well.

SACRED FIELD - Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes

If you're going to follow anyone from NSW, this is the horse - easily the #1 performer of the week.

Oct 22 (Rosehill) - you won’t see anymore impressive trial wins than this - second fastest time of the morning at a really slick 52.74s along with a 6L win when leading from start to finish and never asked for an effort at any stage - he’s come back as a gelding and now looks a real horse - couldn’t be more impressed, super keen to follow him first up (not expecting a big price).
