Barrier trial Greyville poly 1000m 06/03/2019

1st Simply Scrumptious (Hewitson/Lafferty MR75 A 59kg draw 11) This hard-knocking one-time winner was returning from a layoff of over six months and showed some natural pace and strode out well, although she did change legs close to home. 60.04 seconds

2nd 0,60 Touch Of Magic (AUS) (Jacobs -4 kg/Lafferty A 59kg draw 2) This well regarded filly showed good pace in her return from a five month layoff but needed it and faded late. 60.15 seconds

3rd 1,20 Master Of Illusion (Veale/Drier S 57kg draw 3) This R900,000 Master Of MY Fate colt is out of Captain Al Listed winner Victorian Secret, who is a full sister to the dual Grade 1 winner Snowdance. Classy looking sort with scope and showed some pace with a fair action but was green. 60.26 seconds

4th 1,70 Angelico (Wright/Hill A 57kg draw 4) This Visionaire colt is a rangy type with a fair action and he will likely improve over further. 60.35 seconds

5th 1,85 Oratorina (Kennedy/Van Zyl MR74 A 58kg draw 9) This improved Oratorio filly strode out well throughout without being asked a lot. 60.38 seconds

6th 1,90 Divine Hugh (Samuel/B Crawford s 59kg draw 7) Has some scope and showed some early pace. However, he was a touch outpaced in the straight and will come on for the outing. 60.4 seconds

7th 1,95 Dreams Are Made (AUS) (Ramzan -4 kg/B Crawford MR64 S 59kg draw 8) Some pace, shuffled back and was doing some fair late work when asked the question. Will come on from the outing. 60.41 seconds

8th 2,35 Trip To Freedom (Khan/Howells A 56kg draw 6) Green but displayed a fair action in the straight and will improve with this outing under the belt. 60.49 seconds

10th 12,25 Say Say Say (Jacobson/G Kotzen s 56kg draw 1) Only enough pace to get to midfield from a pole position draw but faded tamely in the straight. 61.94 seconds

11th 16,25 Russian Beauty (Sakayi -1.5 kg/Kotzen S 56kg draw 5) Outpaced throughout. 62.59 seconds

12th 17.05 Western Path (Randolph/Whitehead S 58kg draw 12) Slow away and outpaced throughout. 62.73 seconds
