WARWICK FARM April 1 (Polytrack): Best of the 740m heat winners was the fast maiden runner SHADOW COLOUR (44.33; 34.04). He has been placed in 10 of his 11 career starts and must surely win his maiden soon.

ROSEHILL March 29: In the 895m heats the good winners included much travelled CHARGE (54.42; 35.20) and CHALEUR BAY (55.26; 35.82).The four heats over 1030m featured a first trial win at fourth attempt for the unraced $1 million Exceed And Excel colt OVOID (63.98; 36.09).(55.26; 35.82).

ROSEHILL March 15: Unraced Snitzel filly CHALEUR BAY coasted to a strong 3.3 lengths win in her 900m heat after sliding clear in the middle stages to lead by four under a hold. Although the time was only fair (55.39; 35.18) Robbie Dolan was merely a passenger over the last 300m. Repeated with another good heat win at Rosehill on March 29.

RANDWICK March 11: In the 735m heats the fastest time was posted by the unraced maiden MAREEBA (43.57; 33.34). The quickest 2YO heat was won by the high priced I Am Invincible filly BILLIONDOLLARBABY (44.09; 34.00) in her second appearance since her first trial in November.
