NOTED RUNNERS January 8-11

WARWICK FARM: Juan Diva (R1); Katalin (R1); Miss Twilight (R1); Valdostana (R1); Rammstein (R2); O'Mudgee (R2); Travest (R2); Heart Of The Oak (R4); Positive Peace (R4).

HEART OF THE OAK (Rosehill December 30): Lot to like about the way he looped the field from last in his 900m heat, going four and five deep from the 500m, before  coasting to the line under no pressure for a soft win (54.79; 35.00). He's now won two trials since he was last seen winning at Newcastle in August and will be well fancied to win first-up.

GOSFORD FRIDAY: Acumen (R1); Anethole (R1); Able Hill (R3); Mendooran (R3); Mollycoddle (R3); Mr Colorful (R3); Riccardo (R3); Enchanted Heart (R5); My Fire Phoenix (R5); Freefica (R6); Belluci Babe (R6); Tailleur (R6); Gloraya (R6); Islands (R7).

RANDWICK SATURDAY: Omar (R1); Tailleur (R1); Cradle Mountain (R3); Special Reward (R3); Toryjoy (R8).

OMAR (Rosehill December 30): Time wasn't flash (55.32; 34.60) but he was visually impressive cruising home in his 900m heat, holding a clear margin over some better performed rivals including the classy Champagne Cuddles. He's won three provincial races from six starts and looks capable of rising to metro company.

SPECIAL REWARD (Newcastle December 30): Former Perth mare looks a readymade winner for the Lees stable after cruising to an impressive win in the fastest of the six 1000m heats (60.39; 33.48). She has obviously done very well since her Sydney debut when she disappointed at Rosehill in November.

GOLD COAST SATURDAY: Aeecee Beau (R1); Space Boy (R1); Hulk (R1); Sir Rocket (R1); Champagne Cuddles (R4); Into The Abyss (R5); Irithea (R5); King Of Hastings (R6); Redouble (R8).

SPACEBOY (Warwick Farm January 2): Bolted to a 12 lengths win in his 1200m heat and surely must soon break his maiden sequence of six placings from seven starts.

KING OF HASTINGS (Rosehill December 30): Classy Melbourne 3YO stopped off on his way to the Gold Coast for a tick over trial that will have him well primed for the MM Guineas. Went through his gears in great style to win his 1030m heat under a cold ride in a reasonable 63.82 (34.80).

RECENT TRIAL WATCH WINNERS: Lashes; Napster; Quantico; Private Thoughts;  Riverside's Cash; Hussonibis; Classic Gaming; Return With Honour; Bound To Win; Rejinsky; Rocha Clock; New Offer; Thanks To You; Wild Ruler; Diamond Thunder; Fashchanel; Kiaria.
