Ac­ces­sion looks like one to fol­low

The Sportsman Midweek - - Last Week's Results - SHAYNE O’CASS

INGLIS Nurs­ery win­ners have gone on to win three Golden Slip­pers and whether the Chris Waller-trained AC­CES­SION makes it four will be known soon enough.

The son of Waller’s own Brazen Beau (now at Dar­ley Vic­to­ria) fin­ished a dis­tant 7.1-length third in his 735m heat at Rand­wick last Fri­day morn­ing and we only re­ally need four words to de­scribe what hap­pened – ‘do­ing best work late’.

It was a huge morn­ing for Gai Water­house and Adrian Bott who sup­plied the win­ners of seven of the 12 heats.

Water­house’s chances of a sev­enth Golden Slip­per in 2019 might well rest with ESPANNIYAH above all the Tul­loch Lodge two-year- olds this sea­son.

She and Bott would have been thrilled with the I Am In­vin­ci­ble filly’s win in her heat beat­ing sta­ble­mates SHUHOOD and PIERRO ROSE.

Esaaniyah, like last year’s Slip­per win­ner is owned by Emi­rates Park, and this one was tipped out after win­ning the Inglis Ban­ner (1000m) on Cox Plate day. She won it eas­ily too. The horse that fin­ished fourth in the trial was an­other of the Water­house/Bott string namely VINICUNCA, who, as

name sug­gests is by that amaz­ing sire, I Am In­vin­ci­ble.

She has some other sim­i­lar­i­ties to Es­paaniyah, in that she was a de­but win­ner south of the bor­der, in her case it

in Group 3 VRC Maribyrnong Trial (1000m) at fa­mous Flem­ing­ton.

Water­house and Bott would no doubt have some high ex­pec­ta­tions from WIMLAH this cam­paign and why not, she is a class act by Se­bring, one of Water­house’s six Golden Slip­per win­ners.

Wimlah bolted in to win her heat by 4.8-lengths, she was level peg­ging up un­til about the 350m mark but went fur­ther and fur­ther ahead, that last 100m was com­pelling stuff.

There noth­ing at all not to like about CALL ME ROYAL who won her 1050m trial by a neat 4-lengths, this for­mer Tas­ma­nian filly (again

Se­bring) will be win­ning a maiden very soon but be­ware, she’ll be short odds.

Ditto for the run­ner-up and sta­ble­mate AU­TUMN in the Ne­whaven Park colours.

The Medaglia D’oro filly was flash­ing up late in the piece but was never go­ing to get any close to the win­ner un­der the cir­cum­stances. Fast is one way de­scribe

LUCAND LAD, flashy is an­other.

The Water­house/Bott geld­ing ran his ri­vals off their legs to win 1050m trial by 7.5-lengths.

Lucand Lad, a son of Water­house’s handy colt Squamosa, is one of the most strik­ingly marked horses you would see.

He is a chest­nut with a flaxen

mane and tail and looks not a mil­lion miles un­like Rory’s Jester which makes sense given that Lucand Lad car­ries a 3x4 dou­ble cross of the 1985 Golden Slip­per win­ner.

Two more from Bowral Street be­fore we have to move on; last start win­ner PENSKE won his heat eas­ily and the Dy­namic Syn­di­ca­tions Lonhro four-year- old geld­ing

SONDELON who was sec­ond to SLOW BURN.

The Les Bridge-trained mare has been below her best in her two runs this sum­mer but the trial win may spark

up and back to life. With­out doubt though, the best part about the trial was the jockey – Blake Shinn – who is back do­ing what he does amaz­ingly well after a fall in Au­gust one morn­ing at the Rand­wick tri­als.

Dar­ren Flin­dell spot­ted one here – DOMED – call­ing her the ‘star of the trial’ and it’s hard to ar­gue.

The John Thomp­son­trained mare gave ev­ery­one a lit­tle glimpse of that huge fin­ish that we know she has.

We also while her wins are at 1600m and 1900m, she has placed three out of four fresh and could run right over the top win some­time some­where soon if she gets a tempo as­sist.

The seem­ingly aptly-named ALL CYLIN­DERS was one of the more im­pres­sive trial win­ners last Fri­day morn­ing.

A son of the age­less Testa Rossa, All Cylin­ders, was dead­set go­ing to run third at the 100m but seemed to get in­ter­ested pretty quickly when asked – got the lead back and then ba­si­cally switched off again all in about five strides!

All Cylin­ders is-trained by Peter Robl and is from the same fam­ily as Stag­ing, dam of Group 1 sib­lings, Du­porth, Ex­cites and Tick­ets.

Two from the now Magic Mil­lions win­ning trainer James Cum­mings that shone at the heats were the three­yearold’s CANZONET and ENFILADE.

Our oth­ers are; GIRL TUES­DAY ( just went around but her pres­ence was noted), ALI­SON OF TUFFY, BOOM­TOWN RAT, FI­NAL AWARD and a horse named KOSCIUSKO who is one huge flam­ing smokey of horse!

Ac­ces­sion tri­alled well at Rand­wick last week.
