O’Shea’s Big Guns Impress Again At Trials

Neither won but Godolphin big guns Hartnell and Contributer were again the talking points at the Randwick barrier trials on Friday.

John O’Shea’s Group 1-winning imports impressed when having their first spring hitouts on August 10 and showed they had only improved since as they prepare to embark on ambitious spring campaigns.

Contributer Horseform was first on the track for James McDonald, who positioned the Ranvet Stakes winner toward the tail of the seven-horse field over 1250 metres.

Taken wide in the straight, the six-year-old lengthened impressively under no pressure to run third to Gai Waterhouse’s new recruit Arabian Gold Horseform and Prince Cheri Horseform in 1.16.10 on a good 3 surface.

Group 1-winning sprinter Famous Seamus Horseform was a close-up third with Melbourne Cup placegetter Who Shot Thebarman Horseform given a quiet time in sixth.

McDonald allowed Hartnell Horseform to drift back to last of six runners before the turn in his 1250 metre trial.

The BMW winner sliced between runners in the straight to work home powerfully under a stranglehold for a close third to Waterhouse’s Café Society Horseform and Hooked Horseform in 1.17.5.

Waterhouse’s Caulfield Cup-bound mare Bohemian Lily Horseform was fourth with Victoria Derby winner Preferment Horseform shown the whip in working home at the tail.

Godolphin was heavily represented in an 836 metre trial won by their smart juvenile of last season Furnaces Horseform.

The colt is likely to head to Melbourne to resume in the McEwen Stakes after leading throughout and running home strongly under Sam Clipperton to win by just under a length from stablemate Holler Horseform in 50.4 seconds.

Waterhouse filly English Horseform sat well back before hitting the line well for fourth with O’Shea’s Sweynesse Horseform a solid sixth.

Waterhouse won eight of the 14 trials, her other impressive winners including Dark Steel Horseform, Ming Horseform, Skylimit Horseform and Sweet Redemption Horseform.

Craig Carmody’s Lady Sansa Horseform won her heat by a big margin while Ravi looked good for Peter and Paul Snowden.
