NEWCASTLE March 8: AUDETTE made it back to back trial wins at Newcastle with an easy win in the fastest 1000m heat (60.60; 33.60). Cruised to the line almost four lengths clear, setting her up to add to her impressive race record of five wins from only seven starts.

RANDWICK March 7: Boom 2YO KING'S GAMBIT was on his game with a sharp win in his 1050m heat (63.49; 35.03). The time wasn't flash but you had to like the way he settled back in the field and let down quickly after taking a split at the 250m to put a gap in them with ease, coasting home by a soft margin of more than three lengths. HAWAII FIVE OH had his first trial for his new stable and a sure sign of things to come as he went through his gears in great style for a soft win in his open heat over 1050m (62.46; 34.08). Excellent trial from nice prospect HELL I AM who is certain to build on his record of four wins from 10 starts. Sat three wide in midfield before surging off the turn and easily running down the fast leader for a soft win in his open heat over 1050m (63.22; 34.23). Top sprinter LOST AND RUNNING showed the benefit of his first-up trial, working easily in second place and showing his class when extending late to nail the pacy leader in his open heat over 742m (43.00; 32.62). All in order for a strong return. Expect big improvement form lightly raced maiden MARTIAL MUSIC after a super trial win in his 1050m heat in fast time (61.77; 33.92). Was full of running from the jump and had plenty in the tank cruising to an impressive win by almost seven lengths in the fastest heat over the distance.

WARWICK FARM March 2: More winning trials by two-year-olds from the Waterhouse/Bott stable. The star was the unraced KAIZAD, a Capitalist colt having his second trial with blinkers added to his gear. He showed natural talent to control his 808m heat from the front and was under double wraps extending sweetly off the turn to cruise home by a soft 2.2 lengths in fast time (46.87; 33.52). Well exposed filly PLATINUM JUBILEE, the Gimcrack Stakes winner, has had a testing season but showed she has bounced off her Silver Slipper Stakes second in top shape with a cruisy front running win in her 808m heat (47.16; 33.52). Racy filly OZ EMPRESS went into the blackbook with a super trial win at Warwick Farm on February 16. She was again too sharp for her rivals in the fastest 811m heat, doing it easily to score by almost two lengths (47.40; 33.46) and is obviously set to race boldly on debut.

HAWKESBURY February 21: In the fastest 1000m heat (57.99; 33.27) SHORT SHORTS was a nice second under a good hold.

RANDWICK February 20: SHADES OF ROSE showed her class winning the Group heat over 850m (50.55; 33.01) with style, sitting behind the pace before splitting the leaders with ease and going to the line under a big hold. Pass marks for the placegetters LOST AND RUNNING and IN THE CONGO.

WARWICK FARM February 16: OZ EMPRESS is a free running filly by Exceed And Excel and is certain to take plenty of benefit from this first trial experience after she led her 800m heat with ease and ran away from them over the last 200m in the fastest of the four heats over the distance (47.01; 33.11).
