Emotion’s ready to break through after impressive trial
THERE should be a maiden win in lightly raced filly Pure Emotion after she produced the standout gallop at Tuesday’s Caulfield jump outs.
The two-year-old, trained by Clinton McDonald, ran about average time for the morning and looked to have plenty in hand as she won her 700m heat.
Pure Emotion has only had three starts to date, highlighted by a second Tulip at Moonee Valley, and can be placed to advantage.
Heat 1 (43.06): OUR VIDIA DAZZY’S DAY duelled for the lead with REVOLVING DOOR sitting a length or so behind them. Our Vidia eventually took over but was sitting shot as Revolving Door came between the leaders to win easily. Heat 2 (43.95): TOCCO D’ORO (2c, Smerdon) took it up with DOCTOR GILLIES (2g, Smerdon) handy and GET’N BY (2c, Price) out three wide. DAZZLING RAIN (2c, Maher) had a trail. Tocco D’Oro was under little less pressure and just held Doctor Gillies with a couple to Dazzling Rain ridden up in third. Others: Plato, The Happy Hooker. Heat 3 (43.17): PURE EMOTION was first out and led ZOU YORK (2c, Price) between PRETTY TO SEA (2f, Maher) CATSKILL ROC Webb). Pure Emotion al- ways travelled well and won by a length over a hard ridden MYBOYCHARLIE/ FLY FORGOLD (Dwyer) and Zou York also under some riding. Others: Pamela, Hard Ruler. Heat 4 (43.95): MIA GEORGIA (2f, Moloney) landed in front from MALAKIYA (2f, Price) getting around SHAKE THAT (2f, McDonald) and LU BU (2c, Price). All were tested and Shake That scored a narrow win over Mia Georgia and Lu Bu a close third. Others: Borella, Second Thought.
Heat 5 (43.97): GEEGEE BOOM (2f, Dwyer) took a while to find the front over SUN WUKONG (2c, Price) and TOORAK BEAUTY (2f, McDonald). ZHANG LIAO
took off around them midrace. Under hard riding Sun Wukong just downed Geegee Boom and Zhang Liao about a length away.
Others: Aislinn, Profound Choice. Heat 6 (43.88): MEAN TO ME (2f, Dwyer) jumped a length in front from SEDUCTIVE MISS and CUT
LASS (2g, Price) who improved quickly. EARNEST CREDERE (2c, Sadler) was wider out and rolled forward midrace. Mean To Me was dug up and won nicely from
HULME (2c, Price) running on late and Earnest Choice close up.
Heat 7 (43.22): COMBATIVE (2f, Maher) was taken on by NO DOUBT A LADY (2f, Price) and ANOTHER DEMON going up wider out. Another Demon wasn’t overly pressured in beating Combative a half length and No Doubt A Lady not far off. Others: Gone Girl, Sienna Sunset, Grand Casino.
Heat 8 (42.03): DOLCE BOY (3c, McDonald) showed plenty of speed to lead by a big margin from LEN
NON’S PADDOCK (3f, Moloney) and THE BIG SUR. SISTINE SAINT made a bit of ground from the back. Dolce Boy had far too much speed and not ridden out completely won by about 12 lengths over Sistine Saint THE WAY YOU MOVE in third. Others: Zartini, Mrs Martin.
