Caulfield: June 25

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 1: Chain Of Lightning – Led and walked in on her first start for Moody. Ran one second faster than the BM84 class horses. Can win next time anywhere in fillies / mares class.

Race 3: Belsielle – Ran on well from the back. Suited by the wet track. Wants wet track and 1200m – 1300m next start, with a better draw so that she can settle a little handier in the run.

Race 5: Blue Cup – Ran on well late, recording the third-best last 400m and last 200m of the race behind the first two placegetters. Has good form overseas around 2000m. Look for at the trip in his next couple of runs.

Race 6: Inundation – Sat on an even pace before unleashing a terrific turn of foot from inside the 300m to around the 100m. Benchmark splits and raw sectional times won’t do justice to the performance as he was in second gear for parts of the last two sectionals. Group class sprinter.

Caulfield: June 18

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 5: Passive Aggressive – Reminds me of Marabi. Can definitely win a high grade race in the spring. The G1 Manikato may suit if the program fits in.

Race 5: Star Patrol – Like to see next prep, out to 1400m around a circle. Group 1 1400m at Caulfield looks ideal.

Race 8: Tuvalu – Finally lived up to his potential, running a new peak figure. Can definitely win again this prep.

Race 8: Visinari – Was on the back-up… still ran to his figure in defeat. Goes to the Winter Champs Final here in two weeks. Will be the horse to beat unless Tuvalu goes as well.

Sandown: June 11

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 3: Moscow Red – Strong through the line in the wet. Ran a new peak but can hold that rating if gets a similar set-up next start within two weeks.

Race 5: My Yankee Girl – Went back to last and rounded them up easily, running a new peak. Love to see on similar ground, 1400m-ish and maybe in a fillies  and mares race where she will stay down in the weights.

Race 6: Mimi’s Award – Made good ground, running the third-fastest 400m – 200m of the race, then the fastest last 200m of the race. Has run well in the ground before. Looking for her same distance range on a wet track – she can improve to her previous best form.

Race 9: Mankayan – Was second-up here off a genuine tempo. Looked to stroll through the ground from the 650m to hit the lead early in the straight before pulling away and being eased down on the line. Improved off first-up run. Can definitely improve again next start, up in trip in slightly similar conditions. Can go to a new level this prep (his second Aust prep).

Flemington: June 4

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 1: Maserartie Bay – Sat on pace before taking over at the 300m mark. Was eased down late .Can win at this distance range again in similar class.

Race 8: Mystery Shot – Ran on terrifically from well back, running the second-best splits of the race behind the winner. Wet track no concern .Can win up to 1600m next start. Just needs to draw a barrier to enable him to settle handier.

Race 9: Passive Aggressive – Undefeated filly. Did all the running here before being eased down late. Still on the up.

Race 9: Squid Game – Improved dramatically off his first-up run. Got back here before running the fastest last 800m 600m / 400m / 200m of the day. Ready to run to a new peak if he can settle handier from a good draw.

Caulfield: May 28

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 4: Winning Verse – Crossed from the outside barrier to lead in faster than standard time for the class, then was able to run home all splits over the last 600m faster than the class par. It was her first start this way of going. Hard to beat in any class this way of going.

Race 6: Ocular – Had to go back from a wide barrier. Ran the fastest last 200m of the day. Look for in similar class where he can settle handier in the run from a better draw.

Flemington: May 21

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 4: Kir Royale – Good effort racing on pace. Eased down late, can win again this distance range, especially if on a track that suits on pace. Needs a dry track though.

Flemington: May 14

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 4: Adele Amour – Improved dramatically when the blinkers went on three runs ago, then may not have run a strong 1600m last start. Back to 1400 here, was terrific last 200m, strong through the line. Can win again in similar class .

Race 8: Biometric – Going well since the blinkers went on three starts ago. Just keeps drawing wide and has to go well back. Looking for it in a race over 1400m where he can draw better.

Caulfield: April 23

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 4: Grandslam – Ran along at own tempo and returned the fastest splits of the race at 600 – 400 and 400 – 200. Looks perfectly suited to the Warrnambool Cup next start as long as the track isn’t too wet.

Race 9: Extreme Warrior – Not one I’m looking to back… but one I’m looking to oppose. On a Group 1 path evidently, but needs to improve dramatically off this run. He went out slower than Midwest and came home slower. He didn’t run any of the race splits the fastest for the race, he was entitled to do. Will be looking to oppose it next start.

Caulfield: April 16

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 2: Clemenceau – Sat off an even speed before unleashing the second best last 600m and 400m of the day and the third best last 200m of the day. Won pulling up. Can easily win up to Group 3 level at next couple of starts.

Race 2: Little Stevie – Ran well from the back. Going really well at the moment. Look for in the same class with a better draw where he can settle handier to the speed.

Race 5: Najmaty – Returned with a new peak here. Went out slightly slower than Clemenceau but came off slightly faster. If she can hold this rating she’ll win a nice race.

Race 5: Beneficio – Good effort on the pace. Should be able to win if comes back in class and finds an on-pace track.

Race 6: Chassis – Got a long way back, was in traffic in the early part of the straight before hitting the line hard, running the best last 200m of the race. Ready now to win.

Caulfield: April 9

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 6: Magic Max – Pretty obvious good thing beaten, no doubt he should have won easily. Ran the second-fastest last 800 / 600 / 400 of the day being held up, before running the fastest L200 of the day when finally in the clear. Look for a jockey change next time.

Race 7: Adele Amour and Blistering – Both sat back in a solidly run race before running on strongly in the straight. Time was much faster than the BM78 race which Paperboy won. They probably don’t have to hold their rating here to still be competitive in a race of similar class and trip next time.

Race 8: Ain’tnodeeldun – Probably needed that run second-up off a long layoff. Was solid in the market. Was solid to the line. Should be ready to peak next start. 1800 – 2000m.

Bendigo: April 2

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 2: Vitruvius – Resuming. Ran on very strongly closing with the fastest last 200m of the day. In for a good prep. Suited up to 2000m this prep.

Mornington: March 26

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 1: Quintello – Super impressive resuming with a soft kill. Overall times and splits were close to those of the listed Hareeba Stakes. Can win again next start in anything less than a Group 1.

Race 4: Typhoon Harmony – Returned with a good effort. Sat back off genuine tempo, made a long run from the 600m, hit the lead in the straight before peaking late. Fitter next start.

Flemington: March 12

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 5: So You See – Pretty obvious one in that she was held up in the straight. She still ran the third-fastest last 600m and last 200m of the day according to Puntingform. Produced a high rating and looks to still be on the up. Bred to get a lot further. Looks ideally suited to the 3YO staying trips coming up interstate.

Race 8: Kissonallfourcheeks – Another obvious one. Sat midfield off a moderate tempo, strolled into the race on the corner before unleashing a terrific turn of foot running the fast last 600m, last 400m and last 200 of the day according to Puntingform. To the eye she was doing it effortlessly. Will be competitive in anything she runs in going forward.

Race 9: Daisies and Commander Harry – Both staying types. Both were strong late without much room in the straight. Will be hard to beat in any staying races going forward.

Flemington: March 5

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 3: Bermadez – Resumed off a short break. Sat back in a moderate tempo before growing wings over the last 150m. Ran the 8th fastest last 400m and last 200m according to Puntingform. Versatile horse who can settle back or on the pace. Looks ideally suited at 1400m next start, up in grade.

Race 4: Annavisto – Resumed with a new peak on my ratings. Flies early in the prep. Can hold rating in a similar race with Kah staying on.

Race 9: Yonce – Sat midfield off a genuine tempo before getting clear in the straight and powering away. Genuine G1 horse in anything from 1600m to 2000m.

Caulfield: February 26

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 8: Oxley Road – Beaten for pace settling midfield and wide. Worked home well, running home the third-best last 600m, albeit well held by the winner. Doubt he is a “true” G1 type but he can pick up lesser grade sprints along the way this prep. Has the ability to sit up on the pace.

Flemington: February 19

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 3: Yonce – Undefeated mare with a staying pedigree. Can continue to win as she rises in trip.

Race 3: Groovy Kinda Love – Terrific effort running on hard off an interrupted run in transit. Can improve again next start at a similar trip.

Race 6: Pinstriped – Sat midfield off strong tempo, got to the outside in the straight as leader kicked. Really chased hard to win going away. Still on the up.

Race 6: Captivant – Got home strong… was the fastest in the race from the 400m to 200m mark before peaking on his run the last 100m. Had to carry the penalty here. Will improve again next start.

Caulfield: February 12

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 5: Asfoora – Terrific effort in fast-run race. Race was run 7.1 lengths quicker than the class par according to Puntingform. She was the only horse that settled in the first five in the run to stick on. Look for in a similar race where she can get an easier run in front.

Race 7: Extreme Flight – Sat back off a moderate tempo before hitting the line hard, running the second-quickest splits of the day. Has come back super. Look for over 1400m against the fillies.

Race 8: Inspirational Girl – Got back and finished off running the quickest 400-200m and last 200m of the race .Returned well . Look for over 1600m from a better draw.

Caulfield: February 5

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 6: Wishful Thinking – Worked to get the front, travelled solidly, kicked at the home turn but knocked up last 120m.Should be fully fit now, look for at the same trip.

Race 7: Desert Icon – Raced on pace before powering away in the straight. Was eased down late. Can go up in class over 2000m next start and improve again.

Moonee Valley: January 29

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 5: Pinstriped – Sat back off a moderate tempo before coming wide and running the fourth-fastest last 400m and sixth-fastest last 200m of the day. Both wins have been on the wet, but does look a progressive type who can get further.

Race 7: Marabi – Pretty obvious one, but she continues to improve her rating. Sits on the speed and then can kick which is a huge asset. Can win a Group 1.

Race 7: Sinawann – Missed the start which he won’t want to make a habit of, but came wide and ran the sixth-fastest last 200m of the day . Can step next start out to 1400m.

Moonee Valley: January 22

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 1: Unflinching – Bombproof filly who can race on the pace and kick with a good turn of foot. Still on the up. Can win in better company.

Race 7: Fundraiser – Sat on the pace off a solid tempo before knocking up late in the straight. Fully fit now and ready to run to best next start.

Flemington: January 15

Melbourne Racing Results: Trev’s Blackbookers

Race 5: Juatacanta – Ran on strongly, before peaking on run late. Ran fastest last 600m of the day. Can improve at the same distance or up in trip with a senior jock going on.

Race 6: Nicolini Vito – Sat midfield off a solid tempo, was checked in the straight before getting clear and charging to the line. Could still be on the up and can win again.
