Warwick Farm- Monday, June 29, Weather Fine, Track Heavy8.
Heat Three- Barbed (2nd):
I’ve had enough of the winner Decision Time, so I looked behind him and thought Barbed was pretty good. He settled out the back and peeled wide before letting down nicely late under no pressure from the rider. He went terribly in the June Stakes but looks back on track after this pleasing trial effort.
Talented mare that had two runs during the Brisbane Winter and was far from disgraced. Back in Sydney and looks spot on. She got away okay and settled near the speed out wide before staying wide on the turn and in the straight and went to the line under a nice hold to win the trial narrowly.
Unraced Godolphin filly who has trialled on plenty of occasions, the latest being here, and she was clearly the best of the morning. She just ambled along in front under Bowman and wasn’t let go at any stage. She looks well above average and will be winning races, maybe even some good ones.
