Wid­dup’s two-year- old Jail­break to make an im­pact on de­but

The Sportsman Midweek - - Latest trackwork - SHAYNE O’CASS

THERE is a very good chance JAIL­BREAK will be in the $200,000 Wy­ong Magic Mil­lions Clas­sic (1100m) on De­cem­ber 12 and, de­pend­ing what else is there of course, he could well win the race.

The Brad Wid­dup-trained colt did plenty wrong in his Septem­ber 17 trial on the Kens­ing­ton track but more than made amends in his Hawkes­bury trial last Mon­day morn­ing.

It is worth not­ing that Jail­break was the most ex­pen­sive of all Ru­bick prog­eny sold at the Gold Coast mak­ing $ 470,000 which doesn’t guar­an­tee suc­cess but it’s a very good sign.

Wid­dup and Jadeskye won an­other of the heats at their home base last week, this time with WONDERBABE, a $ 400,000 Easter year­ling by Snitzel.

The third of the Wid­dup/ Jadeskye trial win­ners was JUNGLIZED, a flashy chest­nut son of Snitzel who was nursed to the line win­ning his heat by not quite a length but with plenty like.

If the afore­men­tioned Jail­bird is at Wy­ong for their big twoyearold race in eight days time, then he is al­most sure to cross paths with DIDDLES who was just too darn fast and classy for the oth­ers in her 760m heat there last week.

Diddles is trained by four time Golden Slip­per win­ning trainer Clarry Con­ners for his old mate John Sin­gle­ton.

Diddles is bred to win a Magic Mil­lions more than most given she by Snitzel (third in 2005) out of Mimi Le­brock who won the race two years later for Bart Cum­mings and Hugh Bow­man.

Diddles started $ 4.80 on de­but when a com­mend­able two and three- quar­ter length sec­ond in the Gim­crack where he helped set up a 56.99 win­ning time.

It’s not of­ten we get to see mil­lion dol­lar year­lings trial away from the city but that was the case last Mon­day when John O’Shea ar­rived with DUTY who is part- owned by the afore­men­tioned Jadeskye ( aka Damion Flower of Snitzel fame).

Duty, who wears the Cool­more navy, is a son of Fast­net Rock out of Sha­nia Dane’s stakes-win­ning three-parts-sis­ter Risk Aver­sion.

Navy ran sec­ond to Diddles, not a bad ef­fort when you con­sider one is a speed ma­chine, the other prob­a­bly a 1200-1600m horse that will come into his own at three.

O’Shea would have like­wise been re­ally pleased with the run of French-im­port BERDIBEK who was clos­ing off du­ti­fully in his 1000m trial be a neck from the win­ner at the end.

We are yet to see his best down un­der but we may well get to see it this time in.

Ja­son Coyle takes the wraps off the su­perbly bred JEWEL OF THE CROWN this week af­ter six tri­als dat­ing back to Fe­bru­ary.

The strik­ing son of So You Think has won his last cou­ple and in great style to boot.

Our oth­ers from Hawkes­bury are: QUENYA, VER­SION TWO, CARLUCA, WHISKEY SHOOTER, DON’T DOUBT ARTHUR, SON OF ELLA and BAD BOY FOR LOVE.
