ROSEHILL March 4: Classy Group performer ROCK produced a super first-up trial, slicing through the field from last over the last 400m with Tommy Berry swinging to him to win the fastest of the two open heats over 900m (54.83; 34.02). He was visually strong and the clock backed up his performance as he ran a fast last 600m..

GOSFORD March 1: WANDABAA did it easily to win her 1000m heat by 2.63 lengths (61.19; 361.15) and is in good form to resume, having also won her previous Gosford trial last month. Group star MUGATOO worked to the line as expected for a strong second in the same heat in a trial that sets him up for his Melbourne trip for the All Star Mile. In the 800m heats the unbeaten 3YO filly MAJESTIC SHOT, winner of two country races last October, looked sharp winning the fastest trial over the trip (47.73; 34.33) after doing her share of work outside a speedy leader.

HAWKESBURY February 26: In the 1000m heats the unraced filly NAJMATY, an impressive daughter of I Am Invincible, took on older rivals in a maiden heat and added to her growing reputation with another sharp performance. She raced eagerly behind a hard pace before sprinting to the line to win by almost five lengths in the fastest of the seven heats over 1000m (59.32; 34.14). She's now had three excellent trials and is ready to go to the races. Another maiden who has the talent to win races is the John Thompson-trained JOJO WAS A MAN. He was extra good covering ground in just his second trial and doing it easily to win his 1000m heat with plenty in hand (60.68; 34.46).
