TRIAL POINTERS

NEWCASTLE March 27: Some top Sydney stables sent some of their better youngsters up the highway for tick over trials ahead of the Randwick carnival. The impressive Randwick debut winner HALLETT also took the eye finishing second under a quiet ride after tracking wide in the fastest 800m heat (47.86; 33.52).

WARWICK FARM MARCH 26: The promising EMBASSY stood out in the 2YO heats with a classy win in the fastest 794m heat (46.51; 33.95), going through his gears effortlessly with plenty in reserve at the finish. We’ll never know what ESPIONAGE might have been capable of in the Golden Slipper! Showed he will be a player in the Group races at Randwick after he took on older horses in an open heat over 1200m, working home from midfield to win comfortably in the fastest of the three heats over the distance (71.63; 35.60). Australian Guineas winner SOUTHPORT TYCOON had an easy time in his first Sydney trial, working home under a big hold for a soft second in his 1200m heat (72.86; 34.91). The Guineas form is outstanding and this trial underlined that he’ll be a real threat in the Doncaster. In the fastest 797m heat (46.35; 33.73) top class mare ESPIONA worked well within herself for second but again showing a tendency to turn her head and lay in, a trait that already cost her wins.

RANDWICK March 22: We haven’t seen many youngsters by Bellevue Hill but his unraced filly DIVA LAS VEGAS sure knows how to run. Showed terrific natural speed to lead her debut trial with ease by five lengths,

skating along under a tight hold before she was throttled down by Adam Hyeronimus to win the 740m heat by a 2.5 lengths in sharp time (43.52; 32.92). Randwick Guineas winner CELESTIAL LEGEND showed his class to win his 1200m heat (73.18; 35.25). He was boxed up in midfield before surging to the line when he got some clear air over the last 100m for a narrow win in a trial designed to keep him up to the mark for the Doncaster. The fastest 1050m heat was won by the previously noted maiden PHYSICAL GRAFFITI (62.81; 34.26), a 3YO gelding by Russian Revolution who has had a long time off since with four trials since he was placed in the Breeders Plate in his only start in 2022.

GOSFORD March 19: Suspect there have been some issues getting REIGNING CAPTAIN, a 4YO by Capitalist, to the races as he had four trials over the last 12 months for two wins and two placings. No doubt the ability is there as he displayed again here winning his 1000m heat in good time (62.13; 37.77). Liked the way he absorbed pressure from another runner challenging him for the lead, travelled strongly and easily held his rivals to run through the line with something in reserve.

HAWKESBURY March 11: Those to impress with easy work in the open heats over 1000m included AUGUST MOON while the Waterhouse/Bott maiden MONTY THE MISSILE posted fast time winning his 800m heat.
