Time To Reign
Time To Reign Picture: Racing and Sports


Good 4; Course Proper/Inside Grass/Pro Ride

16 Heats – Course Proper 1 x 900m (Group/Listed); Inside Grass 2 x 1200m (2 Open); 5 x 807m (2 Open; 3 2YO); 4 x 803m (4 2YO); 3 x 800m (1 3YO; 2 Maiden); Pro Ride 1 x 740m (Open)

The Group and Listed heat on the course proper was dominated by the classy youngster Time To Reign as he strode well clear in the first 200m and was full of running all the way to score by a soft 6.3 lengths. It was his second big trial after an equally impressive heat win that we noted as a standout at Randwick on July 12 and stamps him as being ready to win wherever Gary Portelli elects to produce him first-up.

Behind him there was plenty to like about the way another high class prospect Vegadazewent about his work in his first trial since the autumn where his form was first class. Further back a host of G1 stars had easy conditioning trials including Nakeeta Jane, Unforgotten and Verry Elleegant. They will no doubt trial again before they are ready to resume.

Rebel Miss (Matthew Smith): Honest mare looks primed for another good campaign after her sharp 807m heat win where she sprinted quickly over the top of the leaders in the last 100m after being held up behind a line of three from the turn. She put the time on the board, running a fast closing sectional to record the quickest of the five heats over the distance (447.37; 33.35).

Super Oasis (Mark Newnham): He was beaten in his first two starts in February and March but there is no doubt this rising 3YO by Exceed And Excel is above average and highly regarded by the stable. Travelled sweetly behind the leaders in his 807m heat before he was eased to the outside in the last 150m where he showed class and strength to easily run past them under a cold ride from Nash Rawiller.
