Muntaseera Picture: Racing and Sports

ROSEHILL January 14

Good 4; Inside Grass

Muntaseera (Ciaron Maher/ David Eustace): Classy early season winner has returned in top order judging by her charge through the pack from near last for an impressive second in the fastest 2YO heat over 900m (53.65; 34.50) won by the very quick SUPERBELLAA. This is reliable 2YO form.

Front Money (Team Hawkes): Impressive second trial from this unraced Charge Forward filly as she dictated the terms and put excellent time on the board (53.84; 34.70) recording a soft win her maiden heat over 900m. Looks ready for a strong debut.

Pandemic (James Cummings): Lightly raced Sepoy gelding is already a stakes placed two-time winner from four starts and is ready to build on that record after surging home from last for an impressive win in his 1050m heat (63.41; 34.20).

Laburnum (James Cummings): Group 3 winner was in good form before a setback forced her to miss the spring. Showed she is ready to make up for lost time with a quality win her 742m heat (43.30; 33.30).

Kings Of Leon (Matthew Smith); This 6YO has had only one start - in April of 2018 - since some impressive winning form in 2017 but the talent is still there judging by his eye catching finish for second in his 742m heat won by the speedy MISTRESS MOUSE (43.92; 33.70). Will be interesting to see how he progresses from this trial.
