Will it be Avilius who steps into the breach?

Will the Blue Army have another blinder of a season?

How long before M de Kock makes his presence felt after his satellite stable opens?

Can he bring any horses will him or will his stable have to be built from scratch?

I am reading that his stable will include bringing horses bred in South Africa, and horses brought at our sales for his South African clients, so the first twelve months will be interesting.

Racenet have reported another stable opening up. Veteran New Zealand trainer Paddy Busuttin has come out of retirement and will be opening a stable at Deagon in Queensland. Veteran former Melbourne Cup winning and New Zealand jockey Tony Allan will be the stables rider.

Now there's a staying combination!

Shooting to Win is certainly getting the early three year old winners.

Thats Centrefire, Winning Shot, Shooting Love, Platinum Bullet and Battle Strike with wins on the board.  I picked more of his than any other first season sire and thought I might of just been totally wrong.

I am surprised that none of the European form followers have not said much about the three Godolphin newcomers who trialled in Sydney last week.

Wrens Day, Beau Ideal and the real eye catching chestnut, Cascadian.

Any one think these gallopers can continue the stables good run with imports, following on from Hartnell, Avilius and Best Of Days?

My list that I'll be following closely this coming Spring fwiw.
Castelvecchio. Top class 3 y/o colt , can win anything in his age group . 1600- 2000+.
Libertini. I.A.I. filly, Brilliant and untapped, will be a head turner imo,      2200 - 1600.
Sprinters, The year of the Bull, Osborne Bull anything & everything at 1200.
                  Sunlight , peaks after 1 or 2 runs , serious threat at ..............1200.
Nights Watch, I'm a little wary of this bloke , options aplenty, Epsom, Metrop. 1600- 2400.
Verry Elleegant, if she's not bottomed out great for racing for Oz and Nz, 2000- 3200.
My one from left field is Angel of Heaven, I still get a migraine from watching replay of QLD Oaks, illjudged ride that defies logic, nuff said, will win black type or better , sweet moving little mare maybe Kriss Lees mini Lucia Valentina, 1600 - 2400.
Haven't forgotten Exceedance , Santa Ana Lane,Peirata, Finche , can't be greedy.

My mistake Libertini, distance should read 1200- 1600.

One from left field that I’m gonna go out on a limb and mention:
Tubby Two Tracks

I think this filly could measure up to Melbourne class.
She was dominant on debut, albeit against some weaker horses.
Will be keeping an eye out for her to see when she resumes

Definately an interesting weekend coming up with Hartnell and Mystic Journey to race each other in the P B Lawrence Stakes.  Or can Fifty Stars or Cliff's Edge spring a surprise?

Then we will find out if Lyre has come back but I also hate these early three year old events when the stakes winning two year olds have to give weight to horses which may of matured better.  Sometimes I think they loose all confidence.  Two year old racing and three year old racing are so different.  Still I'm hoping she has what it takes.  The MM winner is also here and quite a good line up of promising fillies to say she has to be on form to win the race.

The vain on the other hand is a slightly disappointing field.  Bivouac and Dubious both had moments of good two year old form but can they give two kilos to the promising types set to race them.

I liked the pricked ears on Mystic Journey.  The story continues.

I have a feeling that the three year olds and four year olds this season will be dominating the group 1's .

Definite changing of the top level horses this season.

The older group of horses, especially up to 2000m, will need to be better than they have been in recent seasons, and I am not sure horses like Avilius, Hartnell, Alizee, Humidor, Kenedna, and others can improve on what they have done in the last few seasons.

Today we saw Mystic Journey, Dalasan, Bivouac, Exhilarates, and also Pippie who is coming through her grades perform well.

The three who did not run up to expectations, were Lyre, Dubious and Fundamentalist, but all three will improve with the run.

Very interesting spring coming up!

I cannot wait for this year's Cox Plate & Caulfield Cup.
I've been a bit hohum the last few years with Winx hype (sorry but I was over it) and the Melbourne Cup going to the rich end of the draw.
But this year ... we have MJ and VE and more! #ponies buckjumping
