Ke­men­tari im­presses in fi­nal hit- out be­fore Manikato mis­sion

The Sportsman Midweek - - Latest Trackwork | Times -

SHAYNE O’CASS HEAVY rain meant that only five tri­als were able to be com­pleted at Royal Rand­wick last Mon­day morn­ing but thank­fully for KE­MEN­TARI fans, his heat was one of those that did go ahead.

Given the amount of rain be­fore, dur­ing and after Mon­day, the track was a Heavy 9 which posed no is­sue for the star Godol­phin stal­lion and son of Lonhro.

Glyn Schofield had him parked third, three horses off – a line he held in the run to the line.

It was per­fect trial case of noth­ing ven­tured but plenty gained as his spring cam­paign goes on.

Ku­dos to heat win­ner PO­ETIC CHARMER in the Redzel colours. The son of Your Song is do­ing ev­ery­thing right ahead of his im­pend­ing re­turn to rac­ing.

It’s too late now, but the third­placed QUACK­ER­JACK tri­alled like he would be hard to beat and so it was on Satur­day.

This clearly a deep heat, Chris Waller saw to that, with his pair SAMBRO (5th) and

LEAN MEAN MA­CHINE (6th) both wor­thy of praise.

The first heat the morn­ing was taken out by hand­some FABRIZIO who has been away from the races since De­cem­ber 2 last year.

No doubt he’s been taken good care of by Tony Frazer at owner Ge­orge Al­tomonte’s Co­rum­bene Stud and is back ready to take up the bit again.

When Fabrizio leads, un­con­tested, in tri­als or races – there is only ever one out­come and so it was this 1200m heat.

Ron Quin­ton must have been over the moon with the per­for­mance of BETTY BLOOMS who races in colours of his beloved Dixie Blos­soms.

This one is an un­raced three­year- old filly by that great race­horse and sire, O’Reilly.

Betty Bloom’s dam, Zambezi, is a Zabeel daugh­ter of three times Group 1 win­ning mare Tall Poppy who counts the Thorn­don Mile as one of those ma­jors, thus em­u­lat­ing her mum, Fun On The Run, who won the race 11 years prior.

Last Mon­day, Berry Blooms put al­most four lengths on the run­ner-up in an ex­tremely im­pres­sive dis­play of po­ten­tial her part.

Granted trial pres­sure and race pres­sure are two dif­fer­ent things but surely we can tick the ‘wet’ box for Betty Blooms if she goes to a pro­jected sloppy War­wick Farm on Wednes­day for her de­but.

Clare Cun­ning­ham’s CRA­DLE MOUN­TAIN is ready to come back a win­ner in the very near fu­ture and add to his su­perb record of 7s 4-1- 0.

He is 3s 2-1- 0 fresh and we must never for­get he once ran 1:08.15 to win over 1200m at Rand­wick.

Our oth­ers from last Mon­day’s heats are; SAINT AN­TO­NIO LAD, BLACK SUN­RISE, PROVEN CLASS and the Ja­panese-bred WOLFE.
