RANDWICK May 31
Good 4; Randwick A Grass
15 Heats; 2 x 1200m (2 Open); 8 x 1045m (3 2YO; 3 Open; 2 Maiden); 6 x 745m (4 2YO; 1 Open; 1 3YO)
A solid set with some nice types appreciating the good conditions to set themselves for strong winter campaigns.
I Thought So is an absolute trial star. He’s won three of his four trials since he last raced almost 11 months ago and this was another impressive effort bto make up for his recent scratching due to a wide barrier. He’s been up for a while without racing but will surely perform when he finally resumes. He ran quick time (1.03.20; 34.50) picking up the leaders easily in his 1045m heat but the sharpest of the winners over that trip was the talented filly Terminology (1.03.12; 34.60) who is certain to be fancied first-up – remember she was second to Military Zone in the Gosford Guineas before a maiden win early in the year.
The Snowden team has another impressive I Am Invincible youngster in Penang with the filly showing a touch of class with the way she won her 745m heat in the quickest of the 2YO heats (43.29;33.10). This was her first trial and she can only come on from the experience.
Lindsay Park has the classy 3YO Tony Nicconi in Sydney and his 745m heat win in the fastest time of the morning (43.00; 33.90) was a good pointer to him being competitive in whatever he contests first-up.
