As is the case most of the year, it was a busy week at the trials and jumpouts across Australia, with some progressive types stepping out in readiness for their campaigns.
I’ve looked at the available trials and jumpouts for the week and have come up with a few to follow heading forward over the next few weeks.
Superium – Chased from a long way out and needs dry ground
Superbellaa – Ran quick. Dropped out just as quick
It’s Kind Of Magic – Firm track she needs
Bowing – Good from the back
Delectation Girl – Warming the pine
Military Zone – Narrowly missed
Indian Pacific – He’s a winner
Charvet – Disappointing effort
Clever Choice – Needs a drop back to a very weak provincial race
Holburt – Didn’t run the trip out
Beyliks – Wants a dry deck
Archery Butts – Too bad to be true
Agarmi Karma – Needs something easier than Flemington
Touch Of Paradise – Found a good race and duly won
Stocktaka – Coming winner
Koko Connection – Just needs a drop in depth to win her maiden
Friday June 26
Geelong: Trench Warfare R8 – Think he’s big odds back on firmer footing
Scone: Don’tforgetmonica R1 – Loved the recent trial and has been well backed
Saturday June 27
Rosehill: Embracer R5 – Trials have been great. Just a matter of where he gets to in the run
Monday June 29
Taree: Gameman R2 – If he is double figures, I’ll be betting up each way
Tuesday June 30
Gosford: Camerlengo R3 – Looks the clear horse to beat
Gosford: Coco Cuber R5 – Total forgive first up, can bounce back big time here
NEW SOUTH WALES
Friday June 26 (Randwick): Heat 14 saw Absolute Legend step out. Unraced Les Bridge gelding by Not A Single Doubt that was having his second trial. Crabbed on the turn and looks very raw, but has the ability I think. Lengthened nicely when balanced up to run second to speed demon All Cylinders. Think he can win his maiden early on in his career.
Friday June 19 (Flemington): The Team Snowden filly Fresh has always had a good wrap on her and she looks to have come back in good order if her Heat 4 win is any guide. Led throughout and looked to do it quite sweetly from the front with plenty in hand, running solid time for the morning. I think until she proves she can stretch her brilliance, she’s a 1000m-1100m filly and at that distance range, can be backed with confidence.
Monday June 22 (Tatura): Patrick Payne had a stack of runners at this jumpout session. The one that caught my eye was Galenus, who contested Heat 2. He sat last in the second group of three in the jumpout but once shaken up with around 100m to go, he stretched out nicely and attacked the line with purpose. Is nominated for a couple of races at Sandown on Wednesday so keen to see how he goes if they accept.
Wednesday June 24 (Pakenham): Sizzelfly has been given a little freshen up since finishing midfield in the Euclause during the Adelaide Carnival but she looks to be on song after her Heat 6 win this morning, notably on the Synthetic. Cruised near the speed before being given a flick of rein and away she went for a dominant win. Given her rating, won’t be seeing her on the Synthetic anytime soon, but she can win in town.
