Barrier trial Greyville poly 1000m 19/04/2019
1st Lady Caroline Lamb (W Kennedy/C D van Zyl 56kg Draw 4) Very nice type – scopey filly. Won Trial in very slow time.
2nd Wintertime 1.70 (B Jacobson/G van Zyl (Jnr) 56kg Draw 9) Ran on nicely to the line. Attractive filly with plenty of scope.
3rd Preferential 2.80 (T Godden/A Wright 56kg Draw 1) Caught the eye in the paddock. Moves well and is one for the notebook.
4th Castellano 4.05 (* K Sakayi -1.5 kg/G S Kotzen 56kg Draw 8) Stayed on at one-pace. Room for improvement. Fair trial.
5th Royal Kitty 4.20 (* L J Ferraris/A Wright 56kg Draw 7) Nice type. Seemed to need this trial quite badly and has plenty of scope for improvement.
6th Arctic Princess 4.30 (E S Ngwane/G S Kotzen 56kg Draw 6) Showed some pace – very green – will benefit from another Trial.
7th Treading Water 4.80 (S Brown/D S Bosch 57kg Draw 2) Seems quite temperamental – one-paced effort.
8th Pink Rose 4.85 (G Wright/W A Nel 58kg Draw 5) Appears to have a sway back and only time will tell! One-paced.
9th Noble Diana 10.35 (* T Gumede -4 kg/L W Goosen 56kg Draw 3) Small filly, lacking in scope. Showed pace but faded quickly. Poor trial.
1st Room At The Top (G Wright/W A Nel 60kg Draw 4) Went through his paces well – always in command.
2nd Winters Calling 2.00 (T Godden/A Wright 57kg Draw 1) 7Nice type – promising trial and worth following.
3rd Bold Phoenix 2.50(C Orffer/B Crawford 57kg Draw 8) Very nice colt – steady pace throughout and could be a smart sort in the making.
4th Blazing Pace 4.50 (*Y Ramzan -4 kg/G S Kotzen 57kg Draw 6) Not a bad trial – failed to quicken but appears to have scope for improvement.
5th Magic Bean 4.90 (W Kennedy/G van Zyl (Jnr) 56kg Draw 2) One-paced in the straight – could need further to be most effective.
6th Fred 5.80 (B Jacobson/B Crawford 57kg Draw 5) Good-looking colt but appeared in the ring to be on the “soft” side – possibly needs time!
7th King Mouse 7.10 (*X Jacobs -4 kg/G S Kotzen 57kg Draw 3) Bred for much further and sprinted up here accordingly.
8th Impressive Master 15.10 (*L J Ferraris/D S Bosch 57k Draw 7) Very poor trial – needs more experience and time.
9th Razza Del Toro 18.60 (E S Ngwane/G van Zyl (Jnr) 59kg Draw 9) Very poor trial – appears to have limited scope for improvement.
