Scent’s hot on the trail of success
FRED Kersley may have a handy one on his hands in the shape of
ROGAN SCENT who stood head and shoulders above her fellow triallers at Belmont on Monday.
The three-year-old was having her first public trial and early on it looked like a quiet one, then she was taken wide on the turn and unleashed big sprint from last.
So fast did she move that she was about six lengths off the lead
200m out but managed to win by three running away.
All eyes on her when she debuts.
Stablemate TEXAS MOON trialled in similar fashion, a shade less brilliantly, running on from last with a sustained sprint to finish nice second. The winner of her trial was
TOROTEIJA who led all the way, had company in run before shaking them off and she lengthened when asked.
Texas Moon is unraced while Toroteija has had one start in town and failed.
Another unraced youngster called TRACKTA worked home nicely in his first trial to run third without any pressure being applied. ILLUSTRIOUS TYCOON looked above average in winning a 400m trial though you’d like to see him contest a longer trial before getting too confident.
The colt showed good gate speed and strung the field out over the short trip.
Consistent mare METEOROID wasn’t asked for a whole lot in running fourth in her first hitout since the summer carnival.
She raced behind the lead and when an inside run opened up jockey Aaron Mitchell just let her do as little as possible late.
Ex-Sydney galloper LOCKROY didn’t fire in his first WA preparation but that might change this time around.
He raced on the inside of the leader to turn before taking over and you had to like way he put a couple of lengths on them quickly. THE GOBLIN GLIDER has a maiden win in him somewhere looking at his easy all the way win. Wouldn’t pay much attention to the two zeros against his name and judge him on next start. JASPARA appears in for a good prep, his sixth of eight was a lot better than it looks and he generally performs well fresh.
