Cranbourne Barrier Trial Black Bookers May 7 - horses to follow from the Victorian trials

  • Sweet Rockette and Last Boy Scout where most impressive. 
  • 5 horses to put in the blackbook

A big morning of barrier trials saw 20 heats conducted on a Good 4 track at Cranbourne on Monday, May 7.  

A few horses stood out as potential winners and can be followed in their upcoming assignments.

Here are my horses to follow from the Cranbourne barrier trials:

Trial 1 (800m) 47.34
The speedy BELWAZI ran the quickest time of the dozen 800m heats, and although she was given a good hit-out, she was never really asked for an effort. She resumed last campaign without a public trial and won three in a row including a Class 1, BM58 and BM70. With a solid trial to clean out the cobwebs this time around, she should be ready to go first-up. 

Trial 2 (800m) 48.72
STRYKINGLEE led comfortably but was hard held into the straight as Eschiele was pushed right out and ran to the front to score near the line. The Matt Laurie-trained mare kicked off her career most consistently with three wins and four placings from seven starts, but she didn’t have a lot of luck last campaign and had to settle for three placings from five runs. She more forward that when she resumed last preparation and looks in great shape. 

Trial 6 (800m) 48.15
Michelle Payne has a smart Fastnet Rock filly by the name of SWEET ROCKETTE, and I can’t wait to see her debut. Payne rode the 2YO filly and settled her toward the rear, and while others were being pushed out early in the straight, Sweet Rockette towed herself into the race, but it’s when Payne gave her a slight nudge behind the ears that she really started to lengthen stride. She quickly pounced on the lead and was then eased up again for a very soft win. Looks well above average. 

Trial 7 (800m) 47.39
The second quickest heat of the morning was won by JUKEBOX who was just far too good for his trial opposition. They made him look good, but he ran good time and did it very easy. He won the Group 3 Vain Stakes when first-up last campaign without a barrier trial, so he looks on track for another big fresh run. 

Trialm 15 (990m) 1:02.55
By far, the most impressive trial over 990m was won by three-year-old Zoffany gelding LAST BOY SCOUT. This horse has really turned the corner for trainer Kane Harris. He was pushed right out and going nowhere in his first trials, and then he finished 3rd in two maiden events before a 6th placing and a spell. But he absolutely toyed with them here, and while most were hard at work in the straight, Last Boy Scout just cruised down the outside to win under a strong hold. Don’t miss him when he goes around.
