Cranbourne Barrier Trial Black Bookers April 23 - horses to follow from the Victorian trials

  • Nil Desperandum most impressive. 
  • 5 horses to put in the blackbook

A massive morning of barrier trials saw 27 heats conducted on a Good 4 track at Cranbourne on Monday, April 23.  

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:

Trials 1 to 7
Unfortunately, the heavy fog restricted vision for the first seven heats and runners were only seen in the final 100m or so.  However, heat 7 was the quickest of the 2YOs and was won by Dirty Digby, but the Mick Price-trained ALIDADE was closing fast and impressed most with 2nd place. The Snitzel filly trialled over 800m on February 19, and again over 800m on Monday. She has some ability and can followed on debut. 

Trial 9 (800m) 46.71
PARWAN PRINCE finished 2nd to Fille Champagne in this heat but seemed to be going much better and was very strong through the line. He has a great fresh record over sprint trips, and considering he dropped a few ratings points when tapering off toward the end of his last campaign, he should be well treated early this preparation. 

Trial 14 (800m) 45.71
I really like MISS LEONIDAS as a racehorse. She won in one of the quickest times of the morning in what was a genuinely run trial. The Shaun Dwyer-trained filly went enormous at the trials last campaign and broke through next start in her maiden before having no luck in a BM70 where she was only beaten a couple of lengths. She’s taken the next step and will be hard to beat first-up in the right race. 

Trial 17 (800m) 45.64
This was the quickest 800m heat of the morning and SCOTOPIA was hard held as he cruised home into 2nd place. The O’lonhro gelding showed talent early winning his maiden on debut and then a BM64 next start before going for a break and resuming with a 3rd placing in BM70 grade. Injury kept him off the scene for 36 weeks, but he looks to have come back in great order. 

Trial 21 (990m) 58.18
Patrick Payne’s exciting mare, NIL DESPERANDUM, settled off the speed here and quickly put 3.5 lengths on them when jockey Ethan Brown shook the reins at her. This was by far her best trial to date and she is in for a good preparation.
