Scent’s hot on the trail of suc­cess

The Sportsman Weekend - - Australian barrier Trial Results - By RAY HICKSON

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.
