Gawler Barrier Trial, September 4.



Trial 2 Open (1000m) 1:01.23
SAVATOXL, Reckon we could hear them cheering from the Top End in this trial. We’ve been told from all who have seen him in The Alice and Darwin that this one might just be very good, and after today seeing is believing! Never raced on turf previously so this was an interesting watch as Sunlight’s little sister, Sisstar put the early speed on. Still wanting to show her bad habits of getting her head up early, Sisstar did improve her manners after a couple of furlongs when Vorster allowed her more reign. Savatoxl settling last the small field, only 2.5L off the leader. On straightening it was clear Sisstar was under pressure as Savatoxl moved outside her, the mare inclined to lay out as Savatoxl wanted to roll in down the straight. Jason Holder taking action to correct his mount as Savatoxl strolled a bit over a Length clear under a strangle hold in what was the most impressive trial of the day. Would think the Balaklava Cup is on the agenda, just back him wherever he goes!

Thought he had a couple of starts in Queensland on turf, none the less, sounds really promising. Good Luck.

Weighted up to his best dirt form. Not sure if McEvoy can improve him in the short time he's had the horse.

And draws the extreme outside barrier.  That's not going to make his task any easier.  Dead

Needs a spell, then see what McEvoy can do with a full prep. I can still see him winning at stakes level.

There doesn't appear to be any clearly suitable Stakes races in Adelaide until April next year so I'd be inclined to keep him going until the 1600m Listed Murray Bridge Cup next month, and maybe the 1800m Listed Tokyo City Cup at the end of October before spelling him.

But will be interested to read what DirtRace might have to say.

One thing he did show today is he has abundant early speed even on grass. He led at his only other race on grass too. This is always an asset.
