Weekly Review - September 26 to October 2



CRANBOURNE - 26 September 2022

POUANDAI caught the eye at the official trials on Sep 5 when she closed superbly from the back of the field to finish 4th behind Airclash (since 1st BM64), Fighting Sanami (since 4th BM64) and Sutadamu (since 3rd MDN). Given a 3-week freshen up, the 4yo mare was just as impressive in her win over 800m in Heat 10 on Sep 26, this time settling on speed in a smaller field before exploding late to win with ease. The 4yo daughter of Hinchinbrook couldn’t of been more impressive here and with two slick bits of work under her belt now ahead of her debut, she should be very competitive wherever she goes, especially in a 4yo maiden. Nice mare.

CHARGENLIKEPLUMA was beaten by 21.3L, 83.5L and 8.1L in his first three career starts before the blinkers went on and he ran a nice 4th at $61 SP, going down by only 1.1L to Broadway Lane who then won a BM58 at his next start. It wasn’t surprising to see the blinkers on here in Heat 11 on Sep 26 with the 4yo gelding jumping straight to the front and bolting in over 800m. Expect to see another jump out but he might be one at a huge price first up that is worth a spec.


MAGIC TIME’s first jump out on Jul 11 was only fair, but she improved into her Jul 25 win before a 9-week let up into her win in Heat 12 on Sep 26. The 3yo Hellbent filly was away only fair, settling in behind the leaders before showing a lovely turn of foot over the concluding stages to get over the top and win quite comfortably. She likely has another jump out prior to her debut due to that break, but regardless, she moved well here and looks to go well.

ANGELONE has to be one to follow into his debut. He’s a 5yo gelding for Kylie Vella having his second jump out this preparation, the first was on Sep 12 where he was very hard held throughout with no where to go, finishing 5th. The latest in Heat 2 on Sep 26 saw him given a much more of a hit out, bouncing to the front in the early stages before then opening up a big margin in the straight when asked for an effort, winning comfortably. He’ll pop up in a country maiden and is one we can monitor.


He’s with the smaller stable of Sue Murphy, but HASTA LA MISSILE has the profile of a big name horse. A $140k MM Adelaide Yearling Sale purchase back in 2020, he is by Smart Missile and a full-brother to I’ll Have A Bit (a Group 2 winner over 1200m that was also 3rd in the Goodwood to Santa Anna Lane) being out of the well-performed Take All Of Me who herself is a daughter of the multiple group winner Tickle My. He looked super in Heat 4 on Sep 26, his first jump out back as the 4yo cruised to the line out wide when leading to win without ever being asked. The form from his debut prep isn’t glowing, but this was a lovely return.


PAKENHAM - 27 September 2022

OTHER

FLYING ACE was the pick of the bunch at Pakenham, taking out Heat 5 on Sep 27 over the 750m very comfortably in the second fastest time of the morning at 44.56s, above our average of 44.88s. In the purple silks here, the 3yo gelding jumped beautifully to lead but elected to stick to the middle of the track where he cruised to the line under a strong hold, covering a lot of ground but still doing it very easy. He’s by Flying Artie and half-brother to the 4yo gelding Ashgrove, a winner over 1600m as well as being Group 3 placed in the Queensland Guineas, so a bit of pedigree behind him and this was a lovely first jump out this preparation, his third prep without debuting.


BALLARAT - 28 September 2022

SALE - 29 September 2022

OTHER Solid return from EGYPTIAN ICON when finishing 2nd in Heat 5 on Sep 29 to Make An Effort while defeating multiple winner Flying Basil. This 4yo gelding failed last start on the Heavy8 track at Warrnambool when 7th that resulted in him being immediately spelled, but the start before that he started $4 and ran 2nd to Illation (albeit 4.5L) but he did defeat Tycoon Commander in 3rd by 1.25L (won his next start by 4.2L) and Rigoletto in 4th by 4.75L (since 4th and 1st in MDNs). That form should hold up in most maidens, even more so if he’s come back improved for his third career prep.


FLEMINGTON (POLY TRACK) - 30 September 2022

FLEMINGTON (INSIDE GRASS) - 30 September 2022

OTHER

We mentioned her after her Sep 16 jump out, LOVE TONIGHT looks to have a lovely turn of foot. The 3yo filly travelled wide throughout Heat 11 on Sep 30 before being put under pressure around the bend, showing that turn of foot upon straightening as she came over the top of Phoenix Global to finish 2nd to Rain Lord. It was was work past the line that was the most impressive, really going on with it. A daughter of Capitalist, she’s a nice mover.

WATCHLIST

Thought DISCERNING looked to have returned in nice order in Heat 7. The 3yo filly finished 4th, but was just cruising behind the leaders along the rail before making really good ground late and past the line while under a strong hold. Nice return.


SHESALLSHENANIGANS looks a professional 2yo filly, taking out Heat 8 in the third fastest time of the morning.


RAIN LORD was back at the jump outs, winning Heat 11 quite comfortably ahead of Phoenix Global - he had the mouth wide open as they were crossing the line. As a 2yo, he was beaten by a 3yo filly on debut who then won a BM58 at her next start before then being a beaten $1.10 SP favourite but he did pull up with the thumps, so excuses there. Now as a 3yo, he looks in good order and watching him into another jump out.


RANDWICK - 26 September 2022

OTHER

Two very slick trials now from LIGHT PRESS. The 3yo filly looked too good for them in her return trial on Sep 13 over 742m where she won comfortably under a hold ahead of King Of Naples, a winner first up ahead of a smart filly that we were on in Black Iris. The daughter of Press Statement then returned to the trials in Trial 15 on Sep 26, again over the shorter distance of 737m, but it was just as impressive bit work. She jumped cleanly but wasn’t ridden with urgency in the early stages where she then wanted to get on with it, overracing as a result until she was allowed to stride out in the straight where she was again too good. Having had the two runs as a 2yo earlier in the year, she looks to have returned in lovely order ahead of her return to the races as a 3yo.
