Morphettville Barrier Trial Black Bookers July 14 - horses to follow from the South Australian trials

  • 5 to follow
  • Some nice types from the McEvoy yard
  • Bring Me Roses was most impressive

A total of nine barrier trials where conducted on a Soft 5 at Morphettville on Friday, July 14.

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

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

Trial 1 (1000m) 01:01.830
Seven-year-old EDGEWOOD ran the quickest time of the morning and did it extremely easy to win by four lengths. He wasn’t the best to begin but quickly mustered and assumed the lead before kicking clear under a strong hold. Looks to be going better than ever. 

Trial 2 (1000m) 01:01.840
ALTA STELLA went a whisker slower than the first trial but didn’t do it quite as easy. The daughter of Star Witness was pushed out hands and heels in the straight to score a comfortable win. She was a bit disappointing when stepping up to 1200m last start, so something between 1000m and 1100m would be ideal for her next assignment. 

Trial 3 (1000m) 01:02.810
The 3rd placed BRING ME ROSES was a clear standout in this heat. The daughter of High Chaparral was average in her first trial and then ran ok on debut doing her best work late when finishing 4th to Tennessee Raider. She led this trial at an even pace, but while the winner and runner-up where pushed right out to the line, jockey Jason Holder had Bring Me Roses under a strong hold and she still went with the other two to just miss. She could win over 1200m next time but I’d prefer to see her over a bit further.

Trial 5 (1000m) 01:02.810
PARIS CRYSTAL was kept hidden down on the inside finishing 4th but was never given any reign while others were being pushed right out. The daughter of Stratum was a debut winner at Balaklava last month and seem to be progressing nicely. Trainer Tony McEvoy could send her in town next time where she would be highly competitive. 

Trial 6 (1000m)
I black booked MANUEL last fortnight when he trialled nicely behind Nodoubtaboutit who has subsequently won. Manuel was asked for an effort in the straight this time and he stormed up to take the front and win by more than three lengths. He’s ready to go now and will be winning a suitable race.
