Young pair show qual­ity


GODOL­PHIN un­veiled a pair of promis­ing two-year-olds at Rose­hill yes­ter­day with Dy­na­mited win­ning and Rhein­gau also pro­vid­ing pos­i­tive signs for the fu­ture.

Dy­na­mited ($4.20) over­came pre-race jit­ters in the ther­aces Hand­i­cap (1100m) to fol­low early leader Se­cret Lady and pounce at the 100m.

The colt, who wasn’t com­fort­able in the bar­ri­ers, won by a half-length from the Gary Portelli-trained filly Se­cret Lady ($4.20). Rhein­gau ($5.50) was 23⁄4 lengths away third.

“He was a bit hot-headed in the stalls, that’s why he had two han­dlers,” Godol­phin sta­ble rep­re­sen­ta­tive Nacim Dilmi said.

“He’s go­ing to learn a lot from that race. He’ll be bet­ter be­haved when he has his next start.”

Godol­phin head trainer James Cummings has in­tro­duced 13 two-year-olds this sea­son and Dy­na­mited joins Elessedil as a first-up win­ner af­ter the filly won her maiden at Can­ter­bury last month.

“The boys at home have been con­fi­dent a long time about him,” Dilmi said.

“He’s shown a lot of qual­ity and it was very good to see it on race day.”

Dilmi was also im­pressed with Rhein­gau, who beat Dy­na­mited in their only trial last month.

“We didn’t ex­pect him to be as sharp as Dy­na­mited but he ran very strong.”

Ear­lier, Un­for­got­ten made sure she has a name not to for­get af­ter keep­ing an un­beaten spring record at Rose­hill.

The Chris Waller-trained filly, sent out a $1.50-favourite, scored a 21⁄2length win in the Sch­weppes Hand­i­cap (1500m) to make it three wins from as many starts since a spell.

Waller was happy to see the three-year-old didn’t raise a sweat in the mount­ing yard, given she was on a quick backup af­ter win­ning seven days ear­lier.

“She hadn’t wor­ried about last week’s race at all and looked just as good,” Waller said.

“I think over this dis­tance she’s a lit­tle bit more ef­fec­tive too.”

Waller said there was a lot to look for­ward to with Un­for­got­ten next year.

“That’ll be her last run for this prep. We’ll give her a very short break and (then) back in for the au­tumn,” Waller said.

Un­for­got­ten gave an in­sight into her po­ten­tial when she fin­ished sec­ond to last week’s Vic­to­ria Derby win­ner Ace High in a maiden at Kem­bla Grange last sea­son.

Waller said Un­for­got­ten had a pedi­gree that Cool­more Stud’s Ir­ish trainer Adrian O’Brien con­sis­tently raved about.

“Be­ing of Fast­net Rock and out of a Galileo mare (Mem­o­ries Of You) . . . it’s just a dom­i­nant cross,” Waller said.
