HAWKESBURY April 16: Talented sprinter KIPSBAY made the long trip from Newcastle for an impressive win to back up his recent trial placing on his home track. Travelled strongly outside the leaders in his 1000m heat before spearing away over the last 100m for a sharp win in the fastest of the five heats over the distance (58.78; 34.04). He’s on song to make a winning return.

WARWICK FARM April 12: The 1207m heat winner PERFECT PLAY (72.34; 35.64) is an import to keep tabs on as he progresses into his campaign. The promising CITY OF LIGHTS also took the eye working home easily for an impressive fourth in her 1207m heat (73.43; 35.59).

RANDWICK April 8: A big session for the Waterhouse/Bott stable winning 10 of the 19 heats. Impressive second trial by unraced Zoustar filly IKASARA, showing nice improvement from her first trial in November to win her 735m heat in sharp time (42.86; 33.02). Her keen sprint to the line for a soft win points to early success. Other Waterhouse and Bott performers to make an impression included the heat winner REDBREAST.

WARWICK FARM April 5 Polytrack: A small set on the polytrack with James Cummings winning the three short course heats over 740m including the  2YO trial with the nice type VOILE (44.61; (33.52).

NEWCASTLE March 27: Some top Sydney stables sent some of their better youngsters up the highway. Liked the way the James Cummings-trained PISCES worked home for third in a strong 2YO heat over 800m (47.86; 33.42) won by the unraced local youngster PRIVATE HARRY. It was the fastest heat over the distance with this Frosted gelding having plenty in reserve finishing an easy third in his first outing since he was placed at Randwick behind the classy pair Straight Charge and Erno’s Cube.

WARWICK FARM MARCH 26: The fastest 797m heat was won by the racy VEGAS RAIDER (46.35; 33.73).

ROSEHILL March 18: A smart win by talented Zoustar mare KAZOU in her first trial since November. Cleared out from the start under no pressure to open a big lead and coast home by almost nine lengths in the fastest heat over 900m (53.73; 34.25), being the only winner to go under 54 seconds. Seems a formality for her to add to her record of four wins from only eight starts.

ROSEHILL December 5: Zoustar filly ZOUBABY made an impression winning her 900m heat by more than three lengths in fast time for the session (54.26; 35.03), leading with ease and doing it with style through the line. This was her second trial and if she carries on with this rate of improvement she is sure to be winning races.
