Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 1, UNSW Hcp) Kylease bounced back to her best with a typically speedy win at Kembla Grange three weeks ago and the stable has kept her ticking over with a barrier trial win. I feel like I’ve found another winnable race for her and the market tells me I’ve done that. She can lead or sit outside the lead, she’s a very fast horse and we won’t be altering that. It’s her main piece of weaponry and we’ll be using it again.
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 5, CES Hcp) I’ve been pleased with him, just had the one trial there up at Gosford, and he turns up at the races in terrific order. He’s a good horse on the fresh side, a good horse full stop.
Horse: Passage Of Time
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 6, Razor Sharp Hcp) Last start in the Starlight Stakes, Passage Of Time drew barrier 12 at the 1100m at Rosehill with no blinkers and was forced to go back where he sat wide before working home strongly late to run 6th behind Spending To Win. It made it pretty much mission impossible but he came through it well and no harm taken from the run, he’s there to bounce back. He improves as his prep goes on, he gets his blinkers back on, it looks a nice race for him. He won three Saturday races last time around so I don’t think a Listed race is beyond him. He’s going to be a good winning chance.

Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 4, Inglis Nursery) She debuted at Newcastle on December 1 with an impressive victory in a 900m scamper. The biggest thing was that she was strong late. Since she stuck her head out and won that race and ran through the line she has really come on at home. She’s a young horse and we probably haven’t drawn to advantage, but she has a lot of improvement ahead of her and there’s no pressure on her to win. If she’s good enough to do it then all’s well but I’d like to see her hitting the line strongly and putting her hand up for races over a bit further in a few months time.

Horse: Live And Free
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 7, Villiers Stakes) Live And Free meets Ranier (his last start conqueror) 1kg better at the weights and has an affinity for his home track of Randwick where he has won three of his five starts. He’s on an upward spiral, he’s got a good Randwick record and he seems to have appreciated the addition of blinkers. Glen Boss will take over the reins on Live And Free on Saturday.
