31 January

Posted on December 31, 2018

Very happy with TELSON BARLEY at Warwick today. Jumped and travelled really well, and but for a mistake at the end of the back straight, wouldn’t have been far away. He stayed on well, and today was a big step forward.
CRANBROOK CAUSEWAY was unlucky to unseat when still travelling well 2 out. He’s yet to get his head in front this season, and keeps flattering to deceive.
Performance of the day goes to ZULU DAWN though. He’s a horse that I’ve been excited about for a while, and it was nice to see him make a pleasing debut today. He travelled really well, but then showed terrible signs of greenness as they turned for home – aiming at the stables rather than at the home straight – and then in the home straight. It was only in the last 100 yards when he had the rail that he put his head down and raced on again, and he finished strongly. He should win a bumper this season.
