THE BOOM 3YO FILLY WHO IS 1ST FOAL OF AUSTRALIAN RACING LEGEND BLACK CAVIAR, IS LINING UP HERE FOR FOR HER 4TH CAREER START.

ON DEBUT, NEW YEARS DAY 2017, SHE WENT STRAIGHT TO OPEN CITY 2YO CLASS OVER 1000M DOWN THE FLEMINGTON STRAIGHT. SHE SPRUNG OUT OF THE GATES & WENT HARD IN FRONT. SHE JUST COULDN’T SUSTAIN THE SPEED THOUGH AND FINISHED A COMMENDABLE 3RD ON DEBUT, BEHIND THE VERY SMART STAKES PLACED LIMESTONE. SHE THEN WENT STRAIGHT TO THE PADDOCK FOLLOWING THAT RUN.

 

AFTER A GOOD LONG SPELL OF 32 WEEKS SHE DROPPED BACK TO UNRESTRICTED MAIDEN SET WEIGHT GRADE ON AUGUST THE 11TH, OVER 1000M ON THE GEELONG SYNTHETIC TRACK. SHE AGAIN BEGAN LIKE A SHOT OUT OF A GUN AND RAN TO AN EASY LEAD. JOCKEY REGAN BAYLISS RATED HER TO PERFECTION IN FRONT AND SHE LOOKED MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE AROUND A CORNER THAN WHAT SHE HAD DOWN THE STRAIGHT ON DEBUT. ROUNDING CORNER BAYLISS SLIPPED HER A BIT MORE REIGN AND SHE PUT A BIG GAP IN THEM IMMEDIATELY. EASED DOWN LATE SHE WAS A 2L WINNER AND “THE MONKEY” WAS OFF HER BACK.

AFTER A 7 WEEK FRESHEN UP SHE WENT BACK TO THE FLEMINGTON 1000M COURSE FOR A 3YO BM64 RACE. AGAIN SHE FIRED OUT OF THE GATES AND LEAD ON HER EAR. BUT AGAIN SHE JUST DIDN’T HANDLE THE STRAIGHT COURSE AS SHE OVER-RACED FIERCELY. SHE FADED OUT TO BE BEATEN 5L AND WAS AGAIN IMMEDIATELY SPELLED. DAVID HAYES SAID POST RACE SHE WON’T RUN DOWN THE STRAIGHT AT FLEMINGTON AGAIN AS SHE CLEARLY DOESN’T HANDLE IT, AND OFFERED THAT AS AN EXCUSE FOR HER FAILURE.

955M AROUND MOONEE VALLEY SHOULD SUIT HER PERFECTLY ESPECIALLY WITH THE SPEED SHE HAS. SHE’LL JUMP, LEAD AND KICK OFF THE CORNER. BY THE TIME THE BACK MARKERS GET GOING I HAVE A FEELING SHE’LL BE OFF AND GONE AND HAVE THE RACE UNDER WRAPS.

GREAT PRICE……. WORTH A DECENT BET!
