Randwick Barrier Trial Blackbookers December 29 - horses to follow from the NSW trials

  • 10 horses to follow 
  • Global Glamour a clear standout

A total of 15 barrier trial heats took place at Randwick on Friday, December 29, where a few horses stood out as potential winners and can be followed in their upcoming assignments.

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

Trial 2 (1045m) 
Finishing back in 5th place, some four lengths from the winner, was the John O’Shea-trained KAEPERNICK – but don’t let that discourage you from backing him first-up. The son of Fastnet Rock has three wins and two placings from eight fresh runs and was making good ground from last place without being asked for much. 

Trial 4 (1045m) 1:00.80
This was the quickest of the 1045m heats by a long way and it was the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained GLOBAL GLAMOUR that stood out. The dual Group 1 winner was slowest to begin but quickly mustered speed to sit second outside Spending To Win who she beat off with ease in the straight to win by four lengths. Was never really asked for an effort while Spending To Win was hard ridden to the line. Stablemate SIEGE OF QUEBEC made late ground to get into 3rd place and looks to have come back in great order.

Trial 6 (1045m) 1:02.40
Two to follow from this maiden heat. Firstly, FOXTROT TANGO led them up comfortably and was restrained for the entire straight as others were pushed out to get past him. Looked to have plenty to offer and should be competitive first-up. Secondly, PARISIANS did little on debut but seems to have returned in good order and was rocketing home under light pressure to grab 2nd place. Both horses had one start in their first campaigns before going for a spell, and it looks like both have benefitted from the break. 

Trial 7 (1045m) 1:02.30
The David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig-prepared NOMOTHAJ won the Maribyrnong Trial Stakes (1000m) on debut and impressed in her first public Sydney outing. The Snitzel filly was restrained from the outset and covered ground three deep without cover on the turn before gapping them in the straight. Got a little tired toward the line but will come on from that and should be effective over 1000m to 1100m first-up.

Trial 8 (735m) 0:43.70
I just loved the trial of the Mark Newnham-trained GENTLE PERSUASION – but she still needs educating. The More Than Ready filly was very slow to begin (3 to 4 lengths) and settled last throughout before getting to the outside and flashing home for 4th. Showed a great turn of foot and surely has some wins in store. 

Trial 10 (735m) 0:43.80
One thing was clear in this heat - trainer Gary Portelli wanted EXCELTIC to win. The unraced Excelebration colt was snagged back to last by Tye Angland where he settled along the rail. Entering the straight he was trapped behind a wall of horses so Angland switched him around four sets of heels and got him to the outside where he rounded them up in the final 75m. 

Trial 11 (735m) 0:43.90
A similar story for another Portelli runner with PATRON BLACK flashing home from last to score impressively. Racheal King was aboard this Patronize colt, and when she asked him to quicken down the outside, he responded like a good horse to finish best. 

3YOs

Trial 12 (735m) 
An impressive effort for MOSS TRIP to figure in the finish here. He was still last with 150m to go and was absolutely bolting behind runners. Tye Angland found some clear room at the 100m mark and he exploded past five runners to grab 2nd place without being pushed right out. Has come back in great order and is a first-up winner previously.
