HEAT 2 – 700m

Time: 42.65 secs

The quickest heat on what was a quiet morning. 

KAORU is an unraced 3YO gelding with Matt Laurie and he showed nice speed to lead for much of the heat. Interestingly he was grabbed hold of about 200m from home but was still able to figure in the finish. It was a nice bit of work. 

A Smart Missile/Full Bloom horse with John McArdle won the trial after chasing KAORU throughout. Was given a solid hit out but at least the time was there to match. 

UNRUFFLED was given a very quiet time while LIFE’S JOURNEY struggled to stay in touch.

HEAT 4 – 700m

Time: 43.44 secs

It was a messy old start with a couple missing it badly; DIVERSIO and LIBERTY LAMP. 

DIVERSIO basically took no part in the trial after the beginning. 

LIBERTY LAMP was under pressure for much of the heat and struggled. 

LUCKY JOURNEY went nicely. She showed good speed to lead and held a margin to the line under light riding. 

SHOCKAHOLIC was the best performed runner in the trial and it certainly showed. He settled midfield out wide on the track and ran to the line strongly under his own steam. BELMONT TURF BELLE was another to trial well out wide on the track. 

HEAT 5 – 700m

Time: 4...
