Barrier trial Greyville 1000m poly 30/07/2018 (1st trial)

1st  Calvary (Jacobson/Van Zyl (Jnr) 2yog 57kg draw 4) This Querari gelding had a previous barrier trial before finishing fourth in the Sentinel Stakes over 1000m on debut against winners. He is a well made, classy looking sort and ran a fair time without being put under pressure so looks to have a bright future. 59,93 seconds.

2nd 0,05 O Sole Mio (Wright/Nel 2yof S 56kg draw 2) This unraced Master Of My Fate filly showed good pace throughout and covers quite a lot of ground in her stride. 59,94 seconds.

3rd 1,55 Solsbury Hill (Mgudlwa/Wright 2yog S 57kg draw 7) This gelding has substance and showed good pace before staying on  quite well. He has interesting breeding being by the speedster Var out of the Fort Wood mare Mrs Brock, who is a full-sister to the useful Mr Brock, who campaigned successfully in Mauritius and Dubai in middle distance to staying events. However, Solsbury Hill has the build of a sprinter. 60,21 seconds.

4th 1,60 Hole In One (Ntuli/Drier 2yog S 57kg draw 3) This unraced Master Of My Fate gelding showed some pace and then stayed on quite nicely. 60,22 seconds.

5th 2,60 Rocket Fire (Ferraris -2.5 kg/Howells 2yoc A 57kg draw 5) This unraced Rock Of Gibraltar colt showed pace but was kept wide and threw his head up a couple of times. However, he stayed on in eyecatching style without being put under any pressure and looks to have ability. 60,41 seconds.

6th 3,10 Bon Maman (Randolph/Whitehead 2yof A 56kg draw 8). This unraced Duke Of Marmalde filly is strongly built and showed some pace and strode out well. She stayed on in the straight but had to be hard ridden to do so. 60,50 seconds.

7th 15,60 Master Of Melody (Sakayi -4 kg/Van Zyl (Jnr) 2yog s 57kg draw 9) This unraced Master Of My Fate gelding is still gangly and immature and he was outpaced but has scope for improvement. 62,92 seconds.

8th 17,85 Hit The Gas (Pagel/Denysschen 2yof A 56kg draw 1) This Gimmethegreenlight filly was slowly away and then raced green with her head in the air before plodding on in the straight. 63,38 seconds.

9th 18,85 Lovewell (Kennedy/Van Zyl (Jnr) 2yof 56kg draw 10) This Just As Well filly is quite big but was outpaced and looks likely to need a lot further. 63,58 seconds.

10th 26,60 Presently (Moodley -1.5 kg/Impey 2yog S 57kg draw 6) This Antigua Island gelding was outpaced throughout. 65,22 seconds.
