Day 3

Day 3 of #TheBool looks a terrific day racing with strong fields and the program filled with classy horses, again a stack of trialler’s to get through of them I thought Run Gypsy Run was one of the standouts on the program.

She resumes in R4, she’s always been a mare with ability and now with the stable change to Mick Price’s Warrnambool base I think they have her going better than ever off her recent jump outs. Damien Oliver jumps aboard which suggests to me a sign of intent from the stable.

Bea Tempted from the Patrick Payne stable was another who has trialled exceptionally since her first up win at Pakenham, I loved everything about her Cranbourne trial where she savaged the line under a hold, if L Doodt can keep her out of trouble in the big field she’ll be right in the finish.

The Other Half lines up for his 2nd Australian start in R1 the Novice Hurdle, I really liked the style he went about his work in his most recent jumps trial he got into a lovely rhythm and jumped very well, he is a long striding horse in his action and effortlessly covers ground.


Day 2

Day 2 Of #TheBool  looks as always, a tricky card. Stacks of triallers for this day and I thought the best of them came up in Race 3.

That horse is Harbour Views who has been smashed by the dirty pre 9am grubs from $11 into $2.60 with some corporates and off his trials that still maybe overs. This horse is making his debut and looks to have had this race as a long range plan for some time. Some good horses have graduated from low class races during the Carnival in recent years including the likes of Puissance De Lune, Fifty Stars and Furrion. This Carnival often has a knack for producing a good horse and off his trials he could be it.

Another horse who looks set for a Maiden win is Scarface Romeo who runs in Race 1 over 1700m first up. The Maher/Eustace stable look to have got him very forward for this assignment from the vision I’ve seen and he has trialled nicely at Cranbourne leading in to this run. Blinkers go on and he has been gelded since his last preparation when with Darren Weir, Both of those changes indicate he is ready to Rock’n’Roll here


Day 1

Day 1 of The ‘Bool carnival is upon us punters! With mounting yard mail in full swing and the trial report previewing all 3 days hopefully we can find some winners and have a fill up! The maiden hurdles kick off the carnival with R1 being quite a deep race.

Double Bluff is probably the one to beat but of the trialler’s I thought Subiaso went very well he trialled well behind Double Bluff at Cranbourne and looks to be a very good jumper, the question mark is does he have the class of his rivals on the flat but off his hurdles trials he should not be the price he is and can run a big race.

Aloft goes around in R3 for his first jumps start his recent hurdle trials have been very good, he jumps very well and seems to be very professional, he’ll be very hard to beat and deserves to be hard in the market.

Stardayz runs in the 2yo race she was another on the day who trialled very well at Cranbourne with the blinkers on, although she disappointed on debut if she can replicate her trial on race day, she’ll run a big race in what is a fairly deep race. Fast Fever is first up in R10 his recent Stawell jump out was very good winning beating city winner Enigman in good style, he looks to have a lot of ability and can run a big race first up.
