Rosehill- Friday, June 26, Weather Fine, Track Heavy8.
Heat One- Miss Tenpins (1st):
This mare has been excellent in two trial wins, the latest being this one. She just ambled along in front, booted clear by a space at the top of the straight and was eased down the last 100m, so the margin flattered her rivals. Best of the morning for mine, and looks set to go close to winning wherever she resumes.
First public appearance from this son of Nom Du Jeu, and boy he looked very good in winning. Didn’t jump the best and settled last in the trial before looking for a run at the top of the straight, then taking a gap between two runners and bursting through to win very impressively. Bred to stay, but he might be sharp enough to perform early on.
Handy gelding that hasn’t raced since March, but his trials leading up to his return to racing have been pretty sharp. He settled off the speed in this particular trial and though he only ran fourth of five, it was very impressive. He was bolting and could have easily won the trial had he been let down by Schofield. City winner for sure.
