And almost needless to say the Maher/Eustace team win the Grand Annual with Heberite, with Declan's
horse running a close 3rd.

Tremendous finishes to all 3 of the big jumps races over the carnival, especially the Galleywood Hurdle.  

St Arnicca and Out & Dreaming having a ding dong battle with each other, then Saunter Boy digging deep to raising a supreme effort to blouse them just before the line - wow, it’s the best finish to a major race that I’ve seen so far in 2022 (flat or jumps).

The Grand Annual was also amazing with Heberite winning at only his 4th jumps start & giving stallion Raise the Flag another major jumps race victory.  Whoever does the NZ spotting for the Maher Eustace stable did a great job finding this guy (& Ablaze previously).  Both were having unremarkable flat careers on the NZ South Island & the stable turned them both into Grand Annual winners!

And kudos to Declan Maher for getting Eyes Are Blue into 3rd placing - he was a very ordinary jumper when with David Noonan, so it’s remarkable to see him place in a major steeplechase.

Confess I’ve never heard of the jockey who rode Eyes Are Blue - Selim Agbar.  Only his 2nd ever race ride & he’s finished 3rd in the toughest race in the country Clap

HEBERITE GETS TIME TO BUILD
GRAND Annual champion Heberite is unlikely to race again this year, with a view to focus solely on the Warrnambool May Carnival in 2023. Running again and winning would unnecessarily force Heberite, who placed third in the 2021 Jericho Cup, to carry more weight in the 2023 Grand Annual.

The time off will also give lightly-raced Heberite the chance to mature further. Managing owner Rod Lyons said getting Heberite back to the 'Bool is the priority.  "He's still 12 months away I reckon," Lyons said. "A good six-to eight-month break and then give him a whole preparation aimed at Warrnambool."

Theres an interesting runner at the Cranbourne jumps trials tomorrow.

Patrick Payne stable update from the Stewards Report

Warrnambool - Tuesday 3/5/22

Portland Jimmy (NZ) Stable advised the gelding had pulled up satisfactorily, however it was now the intention to retire the gelding from racing.

Yours truly is at Sandown today for the Aust Steeplechase & Hurdle meeting.  Enjoying the glorious sunshine on the lawn in front of the mighty Thomas S Carlyon stand at the best racecourse in Melbourne.

Didn’t have a bet in the Aust Steeple but always had a soft spot for the winner Brittanicus given he was bred by Bart Cummings.

Looking forward to seeing former Spring Cups candidate in Constantinople make his jumps debut in the novice hurdle.  The Kiwi Bakela is a watch and over the odds at 33/1.

As for the Aust Hdle, I think I’ll go at Brungle Bertie. Sure Saunter Boy is a better horse but he had a gut busting effort in the Galleywood Hdle, so maybe Bertie can get the better of him over the longer 3900m trip.

Good luck to all!

Brayden Small, you don't coast into the last on a 1st start jumper & leave it to him to sort it out Angry Rookie error that cost Constantinople much more than he was beaten by!
Watch Aaron Lynch ride Brittanicus into the last in R1 the 'chase & learn from it Shocked

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's too late to stop reading it.

Used to just HATE that back in the day.  Always at the last, you'd be praying the jock rode your selection into the steeple and half the bl00dy time they didn't and paid dearly for not doing so.  

And as for today's hurdles.  All most of the jocks seem to do today is lift their reins like a fairy coming to each hurdle, the horses only half jump, and the battens fall ass-over as they go through them.  Angry

ps gave up watching or betting on the steeples about 35 years ago when a mate and I went to the Sydney interstate ring to back a 33/1 chance each way at Flemington.  First start over the steeples (no hurdle starts) but had pace on the flat and was backed by connections into single figure odds.  We both set for a $4,000 collect if it won which was in my case the equivalent of 10 months worth of monthly mortgage payments.  

The jock tried to nurse the horse over every obstacle which meant it nearly fell at each and every one, and for me the 4 1/2 minute race seemed like a never ending eternity.  Well it ran third, we won a little, but that was it for me.

It's exactly the same as trying to 'steer' a tennis or golf ball, "just hit the Censoreding thing" screams my OH whilst watching golf! Well not really when one considers that horses being sentient beings, gain confidence from positivity & I agree, he's certainly not the only one, J. Allen in a big SA race om a Weir horse & Pateman more than once which show even the greats have their lapses Ouch
Also, when the horse has been 'asked' on stride at each jump & is then not forthcoming, what's the poor thing supposed to think i.e. don't send mixed messages.

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's too late to stop reading it.

They are telling us Saunter Boy carried a record weight for that race today. 

He carried just 6 kgs over the minimum.

Eulong Steeplechase day at Hamilton.  Geez some tricky races & competitive fields.

Anyway here goes:

Race 2 - Mighty Oasis.

Only just beaten at the Bool by a handy horse in Count Zero & stable is flying.

Race 3 - Jeune Elvis

Small speculative place bet.  Back to shorter 3200m trip will help & I like Elvstroem stock as jumpers.

Race 5 - Zedstar

Zed gelding with 8 placings from 9 starts over hurdles.  Deserves to break through for a win at his steeplechase debut.

Good luck to all!

Zoffany Rocket Jumped the 3rd obstacle awkwardly. Jumped the 9th obstacle awkwardly and blundered. Made a faulty jump at the last obstacle and fell. When questioned regarding his riding in the home straight, rider Richard O'Donoghue explained that despite jumping the 9th obstacle awkwardly, he felt his mount was still travelling well enough, in contention and he was satisfied that the horse was in a position to negotiate the last obstacle safely. He conceded in hindsight he would have been better placed retiring his mount before the final obstacle. His comments were noted. Richard O'Donoghue was examined by the RV Medical Staff and deemed fit to fulfil his remaining engagements. A post‑race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities. A veterinary clearance will be required prior to racing again. The incident will be referred to the Jumps Review Panel.

Pretty ordinary for me punting wise.  Geez, I needed Mighty Oasis to hold on in R2 but Tolemac just overpowered him before the finishing post Ouch

But still some excellent stories out of the meeting.

Great to see former Galleywood winner Big Blue back in form with a commanding win in the open hurdle.

Historic won the Eulong Steeple.  Geez, he’d have to be one of the last of Zabeels progeny still active.  Great to see this champion stallion chalk up another winner.

But for me the win of Yulong Place in the novice steeplechase was the best story.  Beautifully bred Galileo colt originally bought by Yulong as a 3yo from Ballydoyle in Ireland.  As a 16 start maiden he looked to be in racings scrapheap when he went through Inglis Digital sale in Oct last year.  Picked up by Lyn Shand for $5k she’s brought him along and in 10 starts for her he’s picked up $44k in prize money, breaking his maiden with a 25 length win today.  Well done Lyn Clap

The stable were pretty happy about it too, lots of loud cheering as he bolted down the straight Clap

Plenty of horses didn’t handle the track, was about a heavy 26 and felt like glue underneath.

Can snag yourself a 10% share in the winner Runaway if you’re quick

An hour of bidding to go, current bid $1500

That 10% share in Runaway ended up going for only $1,500.  That makes the market value of the horse $15,000.

He earned $31,500 today winning the steeplechase at Sale today!

The drawback with him is that I don’t think he stays much beyond 3200m & there’s no steeplechases at that distance for the rest of the season.   It took every bit of Steve Pateman’s strength to just get him over the line today against pretty modest opposition.

Some great jumps racing at Te Rapa today with the Waikato Hurdle & Steeplechase being run.

But the maiden steeplechase will be highly anticipated as it sees the debut of champion hurdler The Cossack over the bigger fences.

He’s won every feature hurdle in NZ - 2 Great Northern Hurdles, plus the Wellington, Waikato, KS Browne & Grand National hurdles.

They generally send over  a few of theirs for the majors at the tail end of our season & wonder if it'll occur this season too Confused I suspect one or two'll make their way into Patrick's care.

Nice day of jumps at home tomorrow, will be heading over for a look. Couple of nice ones in the maidens Tongue
Constantinople & Mighty Oasis

A mate of mine also sending one around on the flat, a 7yo mare called Lunatic. Been off the scene for a long time after a bad tendon injury, but the old girl has been working well.  Wouldn’t be backing her until she shows something on Raceday though

Te Kahu is a really interesting runner in the steeplechase at Casterton.

Hasn’t raced since winning last years Great Northern Steeplechase winner in NZ over 6200m in October, resumes today over 3800m for Ciaron Maher off the back of 2 trials.

He carry’s the same silks as the great stayer Who Shot Thebarman, with both raced by the O’Leary family.

And looking at his pedigree, his 5th dam is Micheline, who produced Surround & Lord Hybrow.  6th dam Dulcie produced Balmerino, Fileur & Fulmen.

Good to see the Lord Hybrow bloodline still continued in 2022 Smile
