CRANBOURNE - 4 October 2021
GEORGIE’S PRINCESS was the only runner without a maiden win in Heat 1 on Oct 4, travelling very quietly on the inside to finish 5th following her also quiet 5th on Sep 20. She looks to have something under the hood that we haven’t really seen at the jump outs. Expect her to head to the races now, and she’s worth following first up.
Another nice jump out winner for EJ, a 3yo gelding by the name of BUFF ENUFF won took out Heat 4 on Oct 4 in his first jump out. He looked to have a bit of talent, extending nicely in the straight and showing he had some more to give. He’s a half-brother to Latenighttoughguy who won by 4L on debut before being sold to Hong Kong, re-named as Nordic Wellstar. This was the second fastest time of the morning, a very impressive bit of work.
JOEY JAWS has become a bit of a jump out star, winning Heat 5 on Oct 4 in the fastest time of the morning but noting this is what he did before last preparation but failed to fire in his three career runs. Negative highlight runner.
CAULFIELD - 5 October 2021
Fair win by the un-raced 3yo gelding DUN WARRIOR, taking out Heat 1 on Oct 5 by several lengths. Potentially gelded from his trial back in Feb, this was his second jump out after finishing 2nd on Sep 28 with Fighter Pilot since running 3rd in in a MDN. Treading carefully, but this was a nice win.
Big watch on the Vancouver filly NASHA, a classy winner of Heat 2 on Oct 5 who bounced to the front shortly after the jump and travelled comfortably throughout, really extending to and through the line. Having previously had two Warrnambool jump outs back in June under Colin Chandler, the filly makes her return here with the Price & Kent Jnr yard and clocked the fastest time of the morning. She’s one to watch for - expecting another jump out prior to the debut.
BALLARAT - 5 October 2021
Following a Sep 21 jump out win, PERFECT LEGACY clocked a nice time for the 1100m as she won Heat 3 on Oct 5 ahead of some gallopers who are better than maiden grade such as the 70-rated Savoie and the race-fit Art Dealer who was coming off a 3.6L in a BM64 only a few weeks earlier. She was restrained early to sit outside the leader and given a couple of niggles in the straight where she opened up a margin on the rest of the field. She looks to have improved on her poor debut run when 6th of only 8 runners.
Nigel Blackiston’s un-named 3yo gelding under the breeding YOUR SONG x SARTHEMARE matched motors with impressive debut winner Around The Horn as these two went to the line together in Heat 6 on Oct 5. Despite the slow time, he certainly didn’t look out of place and suggested he might have a bit of his brother’s talents, being the Group 2 winning Sesar and City winner Doubt Defying. Only his first jump out, one worth keeping an eye on - need to see another jump out.
Following her Sep 15 win, the 4yo MISS CUMBERLAND went straight to the front in Heat 8 on Oct 5 and was way too speedy when recording a victory by a couple lengths. Looked as though they were making ground on her a bit late, albeit ridden out more than she was, which is slightly concerning but she did this in nice enough time and look to hit the line with a bit of pace. Not completely convinced, but want to have her noted down to keep in mind on debut - could be a play at big odds.
A very good return from the 4yo mare GREYT APPROACH, extending away in the straight of Heat 9 on Oct 5 to win by several lengths. She hasn’t found anything in her four career runs to date, but with the stable change to Dan O’Sullivan it was encouraging to see her respond to some riding here and really attack the line, even eased up on the line to record a victory in slick time. Want to see another jump out, but this was encouraging.
WARRNAMBOOL - 6 October 2021
It’s generally hard to get a gauge at the Warrnambool jump outs, but LOUISE FRANCES has previously been mentioned and certainly moved well enough in Heat 4 on Oct 6 to suggest she might have enough talent to go close on debut. She went to the line with Pentire's Spirit (1 win from 6 starts) with Weekender chasing behind having recently ran in the Coleraine Cup. Not an outstanding bit of work, but she didn’t do any harm to our opinion of her. Watch for a country maiden.
PAKENHAM - 6 October 2021
VIKING REBEL is tracking super ahead of his debut, topped off with his win in Heat 7 on Oct 6 over the 800m following some other nice jump outs. He was good out wide over 600m on Sep 8 before finishing 2nd to Baekdu on Sep 15, that runner since starting $1.60 on debut in a MDN but finishing 2nd. In this heat though, he sat on speed just outside Charteres throughout and went to the line untested with Big Apple making ground late but he really attacked the line and had a bit more to give. Worth noting that he won a 650m Apr 21 jump out and was 4th to Argentia in a May 5 jump out prior to having a spell. He can go well on debut.
DAQIANSWEET JUNIOR sat just in behind the speed in Heat 3 on Oct 6 over 1200m, angled out in the straight and then went bang as he put them away in a matter of strides when asked for an effort and won by lengths. He was poor in his Aus debut and immediately spelled after, now with an Aus spell under his belt and looks to be travelling nicely ahead of his return.
ABOVE EVERAGE had them off the bit chasing in Heat 8 on Oct 6, jumping straight to the front over the 800m and never giving anything else a chance to get close to him despite never fully being asked. It’s only his first jump out this prep, he might be one to watch for.
MURTOA - 7 October 2021
Following a quiet 3rd in a Sep 21 jump out close finish, THE WEIGHT was back to the jump outs and was way too good in Heat 3 on Oct 7 as the filly led from start to finish to record a nice 2-3L victory ahead of some handy gallopers that have already broke their maiden including Gottaluvjimmy, Vardani and Mask Of Time. The daughter of Nicconi clocked the second fastest time of the morning in the process and although given a push in the straight, she looked to really respond and attack the line. She’s a full sister to Time Awaits who won the Group 3 Sires Produce Stakes in SA in 2017. She looks to go well as well, happy to follow.
SPIRIT DE LUNE looked to have a heap to give after going to the line completely untested having travelled in behind the speed throughout Heat 2 on Oct 7. The 4yo gelding ran well without winning in his first career preparation, placing in his first three career runs before something going amiss and then the rider not being happy with his action before a spell. Given time now and he looks to have returned well, albeit only one jump out back. Expect another bit of work prior to resuming, keen to keep a eye on him.
FLEMINGTON - 8 October 2021
Loved the way SUGAR POP went through the motions in Heat 7 on Oct 10, travelling hard held throughout in behind the speed before getting a gap late as they crossed the line and then cruising to the front alongside Pitchanun past the line. The 3yo filly was a $90k MM purchase and had a previous jump out on Sep 17 when last, only thing is the other horses in this heat were Age Of Chivalry, So Is Bon, Yulong Command and Vilana… a pretty good jump out field for a maiden galloper. Caroline Jennings has had a few go well since moving to Flemington, expect this filly to be similar. Keen to follow.
VAIL MOUNTAIN is smart. The 3yo gelding is returning from a spell following a 3L official trial win on May 17 after some previous jump outs on Apr 16 and Apr 26 (behind Frontman). He’s bolted in Heat 13 on Oct 8 in only his first jump out back and is travelling absolutely super ahead of his return if he gets to the races this prep. A son of Flying Artie, we’re very keen to follow him.
A couple of 2yo’s to follow from Heat 3 on Oct 8. IDRIS went to the line with Magic Carpet (since 4th) up the straight on Sep 14 and looked to travel nicely in this heat. The one to take was EXCEED THE DREAM, a full-sister to Wizard Of Oz who was a $1.1m purchase at the 2020 MM Gold Coast Yearling Sale. It was only her first jump out and she looked to move very well and did it with ease.
If it wasn’t for the slow time, RAVAGED AWARD would’ve been a highlighted runner despite finishing 4th (last) in Heat 6 on Oct 8. The 3yo filly was extremely hard held at the back of the field and looked ready to explode at any stage if asked for an effort, finishing alongside better than maiden grade gallopers in I Am The Mood and Eaton. This follows her 3rd in a Sep 23 jump out behind Zarina Bay (who ran 5th on debut). He’s one to follow, the time was the worry.
FASHION AVENUE was mentioned after an Oct 1 jump out, returning to win Heat 11 on Oct 8 ahed of the talented Alburq in 2nd and clocking the third fastest time of the morning, albeit pushed out late and asked to extend. They looked to be making a little ground on her past the line. She’s worth keeping in mind when she resumes.
PREMOSPHERE - Gary Portelli
Oct 5 (Warwick Farm) - gone to the line with Lady Brook (78-rated) and Dynamic Impact (65-rated) - jumped beautifully to sit on pace leading and wasn’t let go at any stage - cruised to the line with a massive 4L gap to 3rd - time was good for day too (fastest L600m), nice return in amongst better than maiden company.
EPTIWINS - Mark Newnham
Oct 5 (Warwick Farm) - very hard to ignore a 7L win - this 7o gelding was purchased for $280k in 2016 by the Hong Kong Jockey Club, having the 16 starts in HK for 0 wins and 4 placings - straight to the front here and giving a kick around the corner to put up lengths on them, not beating much but he did clock the fastest 740m time (43.48s) of the morning.
MAREEBA - Brad Widdup
Oct 6 (Kembla Grange) - full-sister to the smart gelding Single Bullet - she bounced straight to the front and led from start to finish, clocking the fastest 790m time of the morning in the process - she looked to have a bit up her sleeve and looked quite impressive - mindful that she did win trials prior to her debut when a beaten $2 favourite - super return regardless.
MR BURGUNDY - William Freedman
Oct 6 (Muswellbrook) - bolted in by 6.46L in the fastest 1000m heat of the morning - was given a few pushes at the top of the straight for all of 50m and then was put away, clearly a class above this lot.
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.
