There’s noth­ing Slow about Burn

The Sportsman Midweek - - Latest Trackwork Times - SHAYNE O’CASS

SLOW BURN en­sured that she will be a red-hot favourite when she re­sumes, and most likely wins, at Can­ter­bury to­mor­row af­ter a mind blow­ing trial win the Rand­wick heats last Mon­day morn­ing.

The Les Bridge-trained daugh­ter of Du­porth was level peg­ging at the 200m but ex­ploded away from oth­ers to win by 5.5-lens in 1050m heat with a bet­ter than 33.70s last 600m.

Slow Burn is 3s 1- 0-1 thus far, the win was over 1200m at Can­ter­bury on Apr. 17 where she beat Noire who franked the form with a next start win.

Sta­ble­mate ZONK, like Slow Burn, is also four-year-old mare with a vaguely sim­i­lar record of 4s 1-2- 0.

If any­thing, she has a bet­ter record given that raced in stronger com­pany than Slow Burn.

Zonk won her 1050m heat last week, she by 2-lens and in 0.3s faster time but with a slower set of clos­ing sec­tion­als than Slow Burn.

Cap­ping off a huge morn­ing for Les Bridge was ZOOM ZOOM, who like Zonk, is a grand­daugh­ter of his own Group 2 VRC Em­pire Rose Stakes (now the Group 1 Myer) win­ner Miss Zoe.

Zoom Zoom was fifth of the 10 in this her de­but heat but was clos­ing fast in traf­fic — great trial.

Heat 2 was an al­most dead­heat be­tween Tulloch Lodge pair DEBONAIRLY and GLOBAL GLAM­OUR who were okay, noth­ing more than that, and thus to­tally over­shad­owed by the two horses clos­est to them namely IM­PEND­ING and Chris Waller re­cruit ALL OUR ROADS.

When he raced in New Zealand, was known as All Roads and comes here with a C.V of 20s 6-5- 0 in­clud­ing a Group 2 win.

His last run was 3.2-lens sixth of 18 in the Group 2 Easter Stakes at Eller­slie on Apr. 22.

Group 1 Godol­phin trainer James Cum­mings had plenty of rea­son to be pleased with what hap­pened last Mon­day par­tic­u­larly from Barbed’s lit­tle half­sis­ter TIKI BAR.

This Se­poy filly is no Al­izee but she has a stakes fu­ture none the less and ab­so­lutely fly­ing into her spring cam­paign — some­thing be­tween 1200m and 1400m down south is within reach off.

Fourth be­hind Tiki Bar in the 735m heat was Godol­phin’s Com­mands filly POP­U­LAR who ran a su­per race on de­but at the Farm when a clos­ing third to The Mighty Fed a heavy 8 track.

Of the many other Godol­phin team that ex­celled were; SEINE NET, REVENIRE, HANDFAST, RAIMENT, FED­ERAL and SIAM. Siam crossed the line a neck ahead of HIGHLY IN­FLU­EN­TIAL, a Gooree three-year-old geld­ing who ac­tu­ally beat Siam by nose when they locked horns in a Sep. 12 heat also at Rand­wick.

Highly In­flu­en­tial’s Gooree/ Mark Newn­ham sta­ble­mate SWEET VIC­TORY is surely ready to win on de­but based on her two heat wins at Rand­wick tri­als on re­cent weeks.

It’s un­likely that we saw the 2018 Golden Slip­per trial at Rand­wick last Mon­day but pick of those that did go around where THE ENZO and LEG­IS­LA­TION who went one/two in Heat 10.

The Enzo is a Stra­tum­trained by the afore­men­tioned Mark Newn­ham and sold for $50,000 at Inglis Clas­sic.

He beat Leg­is­la­tion (Snow­den Rac­ing) by 0.2-lens.

Leg­is­la­tion was sold for the princely sum of $525,000 at Magic Mil­lions and is a Not A Sin­gle Doubt from the cel­e­brated Grey Flight fe­male dy­nasty.

John Sar­gent’s COLOSSEUM KING was back at the tri­als af­ter his non­de­script 11th of 12 at Wy­ong on Sep. 1 and boy did he trial well.

The Bart Cum­mings bred geld­ing ran his ri­vals off their legs to win by 2.8-lens but in say­ing that, run­ner-up VINNIE POWER wasn’t a de­clared chaser.

Sarge’s GAUGUIN was most pleas­ing in win­ning the opener a length clear of VELADERO who was okay but nowhere near as im­pres­sive as his sta­ble­mate OK­LA­HOMA GIRL who made up many lengths un­der ris­ing to fin­ish a dis­tant 2.8-lens away.

She wants a lit­tle more ground now than her ex­cel­lent first-up third over 1400m at Rose­hill on Sep. 9.

Heat 12 looked a very deep one to our eye.

Revenire won it but we re­ally liked the ef­fort of BLOW­ING KISSES whom Blake Shinn merely coaxed into sixth spot some 2.7-lens from the win­ner.

She’s al­ways been a favourite of ours but caveat is, she does trial like a Group 1 horse but has been bit costly at times, not all of them but any­thing that gets beaten at $1.60 is al­ways a worry.

Keep the faith though, she’s got tal­ent and the pedi­gree be­ing by Red­oute’s Choice out of Cool­more Clas­sic win­ner Eskimo Queen.

One other to men­tion from the same heat is CALANDA who was kept un­der quadru­ple wraps fin­ish­ing with one other be­hind him.

Tal­ented mare Blow­ing Kisses tri­alled well at Rand­wick.
