RANDWICK April 20: Chris Waller's I Am Invincible filly BELLA ROUGE showed she has the right stuff driving to the line for a strong win in her first trial over 740m. She was five lengths off the lead inside the last 200m before showing real class to surge home and win the trial with plenty in hand, posting a fast last 600m (32.93). The fastest 2YO heat over 1050m was won by the unraced youngster KING HIGH (62.55; 34.65) by an impressive five lengths. It was his first trial win at his fifth attempt!

HAWKESBURY April 19: There was plenty of merit in the effort of the 800m open heat winner TURNSTYLE (47.02). The Bryce Heys-trained KEY LARGO was the quickest winner in the 800m heats (46.67). The fastest 2YO heat over 800m was won by SKY CASTLE (47.14) while TURBOART (59.65) went quickest in the three heats over 1000m for the juveniles

NEWCASTLE April 19: The enigmatic STRAWB continues to trial well in preparation for her return to racing. She tracked three wide and extended strongly when called on for a soft win in her 950m heat (55.32; 34.60), backing up the good form she showed in her previous Gosford trial. It seems she is more settled and her past barrier behaviour is behind her.

WARWICK FARM April 16: Gary Portelli's Capitalist 2YO gelding CAPITAL REIGN recorded a big win in the fastest of the six 740m heats by 7.5 lengths (42.85; 32.90). He did the right thing by us winning on debut at Canberra after a similar fast polytrack trial win at Warwick Farm and his speed will take him a long way in city midweek company.
