Morphettville Barrier Trial Blackbookers November 23 - horses to follow from the South Australian trials

  • 4 to follow 
  • Steel Frost and Wallace Street most impressive

A short morning of barrier trials saw five heats run and won at Morphettville on Thursday, November 23.

A couple 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 2 (1000m) 59.58
The quickest of the four 1000m heats of the morning and it was one that finished well back that caught the eye. The Will Clarken-trained STEEL FROST jumped well but was restrained immediately to settle toward the rear. Jockey Todd Pannell kept restraining him throughout but did let him slide around them on the home bend before making ground and again being hard held to pull up. Could have smashed them but is saving it for race day. He won four in a row before having little luck in the Sale Cup (1600m) but the fact he’s trialled again suggests Clarken is pushing on with this campaign while he’s in form.

Trial 3 (1000m) 1:00.07
Lloyd Kennewell’s SAWAIKI was slow to begin and was about eight lengths from the eventual winner early in the piece before making up many lengths to finish 2nd. He’s only won one from 11 but looks to be going well this time and can run a big race fresh. 

Trial 4 (1000m) 59.81
The speed WALLACE STREET smashed them in this and looks set for a good campaign. Trainer Richard Jolly put him away following his impressive 3.3 length debut win at Morphettville, and he can go on with it after leading all the way to win this trial by a big space. I really love the way he pricked his ears and settled midrace before exploding away when jockey Jake Toeroek gave him two shoves behind ears to get him to extend slightly.

Trial 5 (1000m) 1:00.28
BENDETHERA featured in my Gawler barrier trial blackbookers last time and gets another mention here. The Tony McEvoy-trained son of Denman missed the start and was last throughout before making ground in the straight to grab 2nd under no pressure. He began well at Gawler and led before cantering to the line to finish 4th, so at least he’s shown versatility in his trials which will be a big help come race day.
