The Vic season gets underway today with 3 competitive races at the Bool - a Steeplechase & 2 hurdles. The SA season kicks off on 27th Mar with a hurdle at Strathalbyn, whilst over in NZ they start off at Rivertown next month.

There’s already been a few trial days with last seasons stars like Zed Em, Self Sense, Bit of a Lad & Killarney Kid all back in work. Also lots of interesting newcomers too.

Patrick Payne & Ciaron Maher look to be building strong teams. Ciaron in particular has some interesting horses, including 2 UK jumpers - Yensir (who won his last 4 jumps starts in the UK) and Light Pillar (who ran 4th in the Queen Alexandra Stks at Royal Ascot last year).

Gai Waterhouse also has Goodwood Zodiac being educated, an imported stayer who has shown glimpses on form on the flat.

If anyone has spotted something from the trials they fancy let us all know.

I’m looking forward to seeing Patrick Payne’s NZ gelding (Ours) run in the Chase today, he’d be a likely Oakbank contender come Easter time.

Great effort by Maher to get Bit of A Lad to win first up with a huge weight.

Thought Lucques still has lot to learn with his jumping, but was still good enough to win. He is a superior stayer on the flat compared to that field.

Nice to see King of the Forest win for the first time for a few years.

He was originally trained by the late, great Guy Walter. There can’t be too many (if any) of Guy’s horses still going around. I think Jacquinot Bay is retired?

That festival killed 7 horses alone last year didn't it? I think his comments are a bit rich.
