11 jump outs were conducted at Caulfield on Tuesday morning, with most interest early in the morning with several blacktype performers stepping out. Here are the trials/horses to follow from the morning.
Heat One- Open 2000-1200m Course Proper (49.79):
Star studded trial. Very impressed by the work of Ardrossan for Mick Price, a former kiwi now based at Caulfield and connections do hope he can reach Group l level, so that’s how highly they think of him and rightfully so. Snitty Kitty got a definite pass mark on speed but I loved the finale of Aloisia. Looks to have returned in fab order.
Heat Two- Open 2000m-1200m Course Proper (49.92):
All eyes were on the Coolmore Stud winner Merchant Navy here. From all reports he had lit up Caulfield so I was keen to see the replay and I can confirm he did light it up. It was an outstanding trial, working home strongly between runners and savaging the line late. Whatever he contests this campaign, he’ll make sure he lets his rivals know he’s there.
Heat Six- 2000m-1200m Course Proper (50.98):
Rellson had shown a fair bit of early promise in the Spring and for mine he looks have come back in very good order. Led most of the way to win the trial in okay time and looked to go about his business under a nice hold. Don’t think he beat much but in isolation it was a very good piece of work and he can feature at blacktype level for sure this campaign.
Heat Seven- 2YO & 3YO 2000m-1200m Course Proper (49.44):
Thought there were a couple we could follow here for the short term future. Of Importance is a two year old daughter of Not A Single Doubt for Mick Price who hasn’t raced. Showed very good speed to lead most of the way in this jump out, which was one of the faster trials of the morning. The other was Rubikat, who closed off strongly in behind under little pressure. She didn’t show much on debut back in September but looks a better horse.
