Barrier trial Greyville poly 1000m 20/03/2019

1st Dreams Are Made (AUS) (Hewitson/B Crawford MR64 SB 59kg draw 8) Early pace to get to the front, held together and then stretched out well when asked the question. 59.29 seconds

2nd 5,30 Mah Bin (Arries/N Kotzen s 57kg draw 3) Was green but showed some pace and a fair action. Bred to go further so this was a fair trial. 60.17 seconds

3rd 6,10 Uncle Frank (Ferraris/G Van Zyl S 57kg draw 6) Greys Inn gelding out of a twice winning Muhtafal half-sister to the useful The West Is Wide. Dwelt before showing a fair action, but was green and looking around. 60.3 seconds

4th 6,80 High Voltage (Khan/Howells A 57kg draw 2) This R450,000 Querari colt is out of a once-winning full sister to Listed-winning Captain Al colt Captain Dino. Showed a nice big action but was green. 60.41 seconds

5th 8,40 Sweet Empress (Randolph/Whitehead A 58kg draw 4) Still immature and ran green, the penny has not dropped. Pushed along throughout the turn in a handy position and also pushed along in the straight. 60.62 seconds

6th 8,65 Nitzram (Samuel/Naidoo A 57kg draw 7) Dwelt and then raced wide. Quite well put together and can improve. 60.67 seconds

7th 9,15 Mamba Duke (Kennedy/G Van Zyl S 57kg draw 1) Has a nice action and plenty of scope but was green and never had much room in the straight to let himself down. 60.74 seconds

8th 9,20 Uncle Harold (Gates -2.5 kg/G Van Zyl S 57kg draw 5) This Ideal World gelding is a half-brother to the 99 merit rated Arianos Shadow. Still immature but has scope. Slow away and then green and outpaced but will improve. 60.75 seconds
