Gerald Ryan walked away a happy trainer from Monday’s Randwick two-year-old trials after solid performances from all his charges, headed by the impressive heat winner Champagne Dynamite.

Champagne Dynamite lived up to her name, exploding away from her rivals to win her heat by 4-1/2 lengths, covering the 800 metres in 46.73 seconds, nearly a second quicker than the next fastest heat.

“She’s been the two-year-old which has shown me the most. Definitely speed-wise anyway,” Ryan said. “She’s just a natural runner and she showed that today.”

Ryan said Champagne Dynamite had been “a handful” in her first preparation but had matured with a break.

“She was really temperamental when we first had her in the stable,” Ryan said. “We turned her back out to get ready for this preparation and when she came back she was a different horse.

“She’s not really a big filly but she’s taken the education we have given her well and now she’s shown us something at the trials, we just need to get her to her first start next Saturday.”

Ryan said Champagne Dynamite would have her first race start in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) next Saturday at Randwick.

It will be the filly’s only spring outing.

“She’s a Magic Millions filly so we might look at the big race up there,” Ryan said. “She’ll probably have only the one run before a break.

“She’s owned by the same people as Our Joan Of Arc but she won’t be following the same path as Our Joan Of Arc and go to Melbourne.”

Champagne Dynamite is by Not A Single Doubt from the Geiger Counter mare Mrs Geiger and is a half-sister to the stakes-placed, four-time Melbourne winner Gone Critical.

She was a $28,000 purchase for Darby Bloodstock from this year’s Magic Millions sales.

Other trial winners included Epic, a colt by the Golden Slipper winner Stratum, trained at Scone by Greg Bennett.
