Setsuna impresses in a Flemington jumpout
SETSUNA has arrived safely in Melbourne for the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott stable the daughter of Choisir looked sharp taking her place in fastest jumpout of a quality set of heats conducted last Friday.
She crossed the line with the Lindsay Park-trained ENNIS HILL who stopped clock in 47.55 for the distance of about 800m.
Both horses appear to be coming to hand well and should be worth keeping in mind when the step out the near future. to catch the eye at last Friday’s jumpouts and the daughter of Starspangledbanner, prepared by Team Corstens, looks set for another fruitful preparation.
She appeared to be travelling well within herself as she passed the finishing post with the Godolphin galloper SANGLIER in slick time of 47.56 for the approximate trip of 800m.
There is plenty up upside to both of these horses and they sure forward enough to run well when they resume shortly.
Nigel Blackiston used a midpreparation jumpout with good effect to get FASTBROOK back in the winner’s stall at her most recent run and he employed similar tactics last Friday leading into her next start at Sale tomorrow.
She settled off the speed and worked home nicely behind the well performed horses AMOVATIO and ODEON with Amovatio recording 48.47 in winning the heat.
Blackiston has Fastbrook in outstanding condition and she is sure to prove hard to beat at Sale.
POETIC DREAM sported blinkers for his jumpout last Friday and the Lindsay Parktrained import made a one act affair of his heat.
He gained control of the heat soon after leaving barriers and progressively extended his lead right to the finishing post to clock 47.82 for the trip of about 800m without being extended at any stage.
David Hayes has indicated he will be targeted at some
high grade races during his upcoming campaign and he is sure to create a lot of interest when he runs first up in the weeks ahead.
POTEMKIN didn’t have the best of luck last time out and his previous performance when he recorded a dominant victory at Ballarat should prove a better guide when assessing his chances at Sale tomorrow.
The Mine Moroney-trained galloper was kept up to the mark galloping over 1200m last Thursday and looked strong and fit after completing his workout in 1.24.06 his final 400m 25.16.
He is holding his condition well and capable of bouncing back to best form tomorrow.
