KAEPERNICK (Canterbury December 20): First outing since his second at Flemington on November 8 and it was typical of his racing style that he settled at the rear before peeling to the outside on straightening where he quickly built momentum to sweep past his rivals with his trademark turn of foot in the quickest of the 900m heats (54.61; 34.47). They pick and choose his races but there is certain to be a suitable summer sprint for him in coming weeks.
CZARSON (Warwick Farm December 27): Locked horns with his highly vaunted unbeaten stablemate UNITE AND CONQUER and clearly took the honours with an impressive last 400m, driving to the line strongly to win in the fastest of all the 807m heats (46.20; 32.90). His stablemate led easily sitting four off the fence but it was the last 150m from this youngster that really impressed as he easily made up the leeway and went through the line in fine style. Both youngsters head to the Magic Millions Classic with this trial indicating there is very little between the pair.
RANDWICK SATURDAY: Hand From Above (R3); Marsupial (R5); Eagle Bay (R8)
KEMBLA GRANGE SATURDAY: Kylease (R3); Smart Decision (R5); Uralla Kingdom (R5)
KYLEASE (Warwick Farm December 27): We noted the trial win by this unraced Choisir filly at Warwick Farm on December 18 and this effort confirmed that she has gone ahead in the right manner as she heads towards what should be a worthy race debut. She pulled her way to an easy lead after 150m in her 807m heat and from there travelled well within herself sitting four and five off the rail to win untouched by a good margin in excellent sectional time for the session (46.90; 32.60). Nice filly.
