Moe and Cranbourne Barrier Trial Black Bookers August 7 & 8 - horses to follow

  • Catchy the most impressive
  • Polisher to work through the grades
  • 9 horses to follow
Craig Williams riding Catchy

There were a total of 11 barrier trials held at Moe on a Soft 7 on Monday morning, while just three trials followed on Tuesday morning down at Cranbourne.

Some spring carnival contenders were back in action and a few stood out as horses to follow in the near future.

Cranbourne barrier trials – August 8


Trial 1 (1000m) 1:02:18
Last season’s star fillies from the powerful Lindsay Park camp looked impressive here. FORMALITY led throughout and was never off the bridle, while TULIP and CATCHY were also given an easy time as they closed off nicely. Blue Diamond winner Catchy did her best work when getting into the clear late and she looks to have come back in tremendous order. All three trialled like upcoming winners. 

Trial 2 (1000m) 1:02:18
Danny O’Brien’s Denman mare MERRIEST clocked the same time as Formality in the opening heat, and she too did it without being asked for an effort. She finished five lengths in front of Seaburge who was closing in late, and the fact she has won on debut and then second-up in her last two campaigns, suggests she’ll be ready to go early this time in.

Moe barrier trials – August 7


Trial 1 (1200m) 1:17:59
Ciaron Maher’s five-year-old mare BRING A ROSE was a clear standout in the opening heat. The daughter of Sebring’s only two career victories are over 2200m, and although she looks to have returned in great order, I’d prefer to wait until she gets out to a trip.

Trial 3 (1000m) 1:02:78
I was keen to see the big Helmet mare POLISHER back in action as I think she has some real talent. She was a good thing beaten on debut, won her next assignment and then finished 4th behind Egg Tart on a Heavy Flemington track when stepping up to 1600m for the first time. She showed a lot more early pace this time but was clearly in need of the run - wait to see what she does first-up and then jump on board. Six-year-old mare CHIAVARI led all the way to defeat Polisher in the trial and she looks to have come back in good shape too. 

Trial 4 (670m) 40:47
There wasn’t a lot between the first three home and each were pushed out to the line. But it was the unraced five-year-old Lonhro mare SARCASTIC that looked as fat as a house and will clearly take plenty of improvement from the run. Formerly with the Godolphin outfit in Sydney, the mare trialled twice over a year ago and has obviously had some issues. Keen to see how she progresses in the near future.

Trial 10 (1000m) 1:03:13
Formerly with Ciaron Maher, four-year-old Wanted gelding YOU WANT is set to have his first start for John McArdle. He settled off the speed in the trial but ambled up strongly in the straight to win by 2.3 lengths in a canter. Has good fresh form and can measure up in the right races this campaign.
