Caulfield Jump Outs

Don’t have time to watch racing replays let alone trials and jump-outs? Let Jackson Oldham do the hard work for you as he follows the metropolitan jump-outs and highlights horses to follow.

While some horses may be flying at the jump-outs and stand out to everyone, some good runs are often hidden among the also rans, and Jackson will pinpoint those runners so you can capitalise when they hit the racetrack.

The Caulfield jump-outs and Flemington jump-outs are covered on a weekly basis, meaning you can check back here regularly to find plenty of runners to put in the black book.

Here are some horses to put in the blackbook:

Sandown Jumpouts - Friday December 7 

Jumpout 3 (800m) 48.02s 
Only five jumpouts from Sandown on Friday Morning and only one horse I want to include in our blackbook. It’s the John Sadler-trained IRRESISTABLE GIRL. The three-year-old daughter of I Am Invincible scored a tough debut win at Bendigo on November 27 and looks a nice type. She led comfortably and powered away from her rivals, winning the jumpout by two and a half lengths in the quickest time of the morning. She easily beat home Royal Performance and Coronel, who ran the quinella in a race at Hamilton on December 4. She looks a progressive type and can make the jump to Benchmark grade at her next start. 

Irresistable Girl 

Balnarring Jumpouts - Wednesday December 5 

Jumpout 2 (1000m) 1.02.95s 
The horse to be followed from this jumpout is the Jason Warren-trained DIXIE PREACHER. The four-year-old gelding had a nice quiet jumpout and went to the line with Cavalini who was put under more pressure in the straight. That galloper has defeated Mirette in August and split Propelle and Trilli in a Sale maiden. Dixie Preacher worked without his usual blinkers and still looked sharp, coasting to the line under his own steam. Watch when the blinkers go on first-up, he should be ready to fire. 

Jumpout 4 (1000m) 1.01.74s
I have my doubts about the talent of most of these horses but I can’t ignore the unraced galloper RIDGEWOOD DRIVE, who ran the quickest time of the five 1000m jumpouts on the morning. The three-year-old son of Sebring quickly put pay to his stablemate when asked for an effort at the top of the straight and looked to cruise to the line, winning the jumpout by four-lengths. It was an impressive piece of work. 

Jumpout 7 (750m) 47.92s 
These unraced gallopers weren’t fully tested and still ran only 0.2s slower than the raced gallopers in jumpout six, who were all ridden out to the line. I was impressed with the two-year-old Starspangledbanner colt PISCEAN. The colt worked stylishly, breezing up to the leader under a hold over the concluding 100m. He isn’t a big striding horse but looks like he has ability. 

Jumpout 10 (750m) 48.16s 
I have no doubt that the Rebecca Waymouth-trained BLACK BLISS will be breaking her Maiden soon. Two starts ago she was defeated narrowly by Lady Makfi, she defeated home Sizzleme who went onto run third in the Ethereal Stakes behind Verry Elleegant and Arisita. Last start she was beaten by Thunderdome, who went to Caulfield at his next start and ran Derby winner Extra Brut to a nose. Her jumpout was very impressive. She sat on-pace and quickly put three lengths on her rivals in a matter of a few strides when asked for an effort. It was the jumpout of a quality horse and she goes straight in our blackbook. 

Jumpout 11 (750m) 46.97s 
The John McArdle-trained BOLD TYPE is exactly that. He was the only horse to break 47 seconds for the morning and did it in emphatic fashion, putting approximately eight-lengths on his rivals under a strong hold. McArdle thought enough of the Written Tycoon gelding to debut him in the Maribyrnong Trial. He was $8.00 into $6.00 and finished behind the likes of Ranier. He then contested the Blue Diamond Prelude and the Listed Talindert Stakes before dropping back to maiden grade. He has a habit of always finding one better and may be a complete non-winner but I’m willing to give him one more chance, first-up off this jumpout.

Flemington Jumpouts - Friday November 30 

Jumpout 2 (800m) 46.23s 
The Mathew Ellerton & Simon Zahra-trained GAUDI was the horse that caught my eye from this jumpout. The four-year-old gelding sat one horse off the inside and went to the line under a stronghold, in the fourth-fastest jumpout of the morning. It’s interesting to note that the Hayes and Waller horses to his outside both had blinkers on. Gaudi hasn’t been seen since June and should pick up some nice races over the Summer months.

Jumpout 3 (800m) 47.10s
Possibly the most intriguing horse for the morning is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained GEORGE PATTON. The six-year-old galloper was racing in France, with his last run overseas in June, 2016. In his one run in Australia, he was sent out a $2.70 favourite in a listed race at Rosehill back in January 2017 and has since been off the scene for almost two years. He jumped straight to the lead and won the jumpout under a stronghold. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Snowden’s place him in a race such as the Chester Manifold Stakes (1400m) at Flemington. 

Jumpout 8 (800m) 46.18s
The Lindsay Park team had to runners in this jumpout and It’s not the winner I want to be following. Three-year-old Filly ASHRAMA caught my eye. She settled near last in the jumpout and was making galloper ground on her stablemate Poised To Strike over the final 100m and was level with him after the post. That horse has beaten Social Spin in a high-rating two-year-old race in Adelaide. Ashrama has ability, running third in a Moonee Valley maiden behind Native Soldier and Phoneme. She is a horse I want to be following.

George Patton

Flemington Jumpouts - Friday November 23 

Jumpout 1 (800m) 47.96s 
The horse that caught my eye in the first jumpout of the morning was the Lindsay Park galloper SMART ELISSIM. He was asked to do slightly more than the runner on his inside Prezado but the two paired off and put a space on the other runners. The three-year-old gelding quickened nicely, matching Prezado who has form around Nature Strip and Bandipur. He looks a horse to follow over the summer months. 

Jumpout 4 (800m) 48.14s
This jumpout was for the unraced two-year-old and I was really taken with the Lindsay Park-trained runner NAMIMO. The daughter of Choisir covered the most ground near the outside fence and wanted to have a look around at the top of the straight. Once she was balanced up, she attacked the line under a strong hold, beating her stablemate Angel Rock. She goes straight in the blackbook.

Jumpout 6 (800m) 48.27s
As is often the case at these Flemington jumpouts, all of our blackbookers have been Lindsay Park-trained runners so far. It’s another unraced two-year-old by the name of MAKTABBA. The daughter of Per Incanto didn’t show much tactical speed but was able to muster through to lead the field on the home corner. Noticeably, the stablemate who was wearing blinkers, Bidding War was given a slap with the whip to keep up. She just glided through her gears over the final furlong under a strong hold. She has a beautiful free action and I can’t wait to see her at the races. 

Jumpout 8 (800m) 47.99s
Only two horses broke 48 seconds for the morning, Stakes performed Prezado and an unraced three-year-old colt AT DUSK. Another Lindsay Park galloper, they have taken their time with this three-year-old, who is yet to have an official race or trial. He looks like a professional, controlling the jumpout from the front and winning virtually untouched in quick time. It will be interesting to see where the Lindsay Park team place him.

Smart Elissim 
At Dusk 

Flemington Jumpouts - Friday September 7 

Jumpout 4 (800m) 48.87s
I was impressed with the lightly-raced five-year-old MATTY. The son of Nicconi has mixed his form over his nine-start career but always shown he has ability, running second at Moonee Valley behind Sprightly Lass in March. His jumpout was impressive, hugging the outside fence around the home turn. When in the straight, he was under a strong hold going past the inside three horses who were all either under the whip or being ridden. It was an impressive piece of work. 

Jumpout 5 (800m) 49.78s 
This is the second Mathew Ellerton & Simon Zahra-trained horse for the blackbook from the morning. Four-year-old gelding INTO RIO jumped from a Benchmark 64 into a Group 1 S.A. Derby (2500m) last preparation and finished under five-lengths off the winner. He returned well in this jumpout, just cruising in behind the leaders who were all under riding. He can find some suitable races over the Spring.

Into Rio 

Flemington Jumpouts - Friday August 24 

Jumpout 2 (800m) 45.99s
Three-year-old BONDI looks to have come back in terrific order from his second in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes in the Autumn. He cruised up on the fence and travelled better than the Gai Waterhouse runner Setsuna. The jockey had a strong hold on him and he went to the line winning the jumpout untouched. He ran a quicker time than Crystal Dreamer and Fuhryk in the previous jumpout. 

Jumpout 3 (800m) 46.01s 
The horse that caught my eye from this jumpout just so happened to be the son of Black Caviar, PRINCE OF CAVIAR. Keeping in mind these specific jumpouts favour horses on the rail, he did a terrific job making ground out four wide. The leader looked a little sharp for him over the 800m but he really worked home nicely on the bridal. The Hawkes team have a really nice horse who is likely to stretch out to a mile and possibly beyond. 

Jumpout 8 (800m) 47.16s 
I’m very excited to see the return of four-year-old mare TWILIGHT SONG. We blackbooked this Lindsay Park galloper from these Flemington jumpouts before she had her first start back in January. She won her first two races at nice prices, with a victory over Platinum Angel. She then ran a nice third behind She’s So High in a listed race. She looks to have returned in terrific order, bolting in her jumpout by two lengths under a strong hold. I’m not worried about the slightly slower time, she will be winning races this preparation. 

Prince Of Caviar 
Twilight Song

Caulfield Jumpouts - Tuesday August 21 

Jumpout 1 (800m) 49.91s 
The fascinating runner from the first jumpout of the morning at Caulfield was the seven-year-old Manhattan Rain gelding RIGHT OR WRONG. He hasn’t been seen at the races since starting a $1.80 favourite in a listed race at Doomben in February, 2016. Now trained by Ciaron Maher at Caulfield, he went with Heart Of a Lion who was out blackbooker a fortnight ago and looked very strong to the line. There is definitely improvement to come but he is one to watch moving forward.

Jumpout 3 (800m) 50.15s 
The Toby Edmunds-trained WHYPEEO was clearly the most talented galloper in this field, however, I was still very impressed with his work. He travelled under a strong hold out wide and when the jockey asked for a slight effort with roughly 150m remaining, he went from last to first in almost four strides. Once he hit the front, he was eased up. He is in for a good Spring preparation.

Jumpout 6 (800m) 50.45s 
Lloyd Kennewell has some exciting horses in his stable, one of those horses is three-year-old colt SECRET VEGA. He had two runs in Adelaide over the Autumn and is still a maiden but brings some very good form into the Spring. He ran third on debut behind Music Bay who is a genuine contender for the Thousand Guineas. He then bumped into Tequila Time who went onto win two Group races over that Autumn Carnival. He bolted in his jumpout under a strong hold and it won’t be long before he breaks his maiden status. 

Right Or Wrong 
Secret Vega

Flemington Jumpouts - Friday August 10 

Jumpout 3 (800m) 47.58s 
Lightly-raced Godolphin horse DEMOLITION was the standout in this jumpout. The five-year-old Street Cry gelding settled last in the field of five and was tracking in behind Long Leaf down the straight. He charged through the line under a strong hold and was clearly in front 100m after the post. He hasn’t been seen since winning impressively at Caulfield a month ago. He is one to follow moving into the Spring. 

Jumpout 6 (800m) 48.96s 
I’m with the unraced galloper SEQUITUR from the Hawkes stable from this Jumpout. We found this So You Think Filly from the Flemington jumpouts back in November last year and she is still yet to go to the races. She showed nice natural speed to lead and cruised to the line under a nice hold to win by three lengths. The Hawkes team have been very patient with this filly, indicating that she has plenty of ability. 

Jumpout 9 (800m) 48.29s 
This was only a four-horse jumpout, however, I’m confident that the Leon & Troy Corstens-trained THUNDERDOME is worth following. He was competitive in Listed grade at big odds in his first preparation and looks to have come back well as a three-year-old. He sat on the outside of Blue Diamond runner-up Enbihaar in the jumpout and was under a strong hold, crossing the line with Enbihaar. 


Caulfield Jumpouts - Tuesday August 7 

Jumpout 1 (650m) 40.70s
I was impressed with two horses from this jumpout. The unbeaten Rock Hard, who is being targeted at the Caulfield Guineas and the Lloyd Kennewell-trained nine-year-old HEART OF A LION. The nine-year-old has won 11 races and been placed 12 times from 35 starts and showed he is back sharper than ever. He cruised alongside Rock Hard and was always under a hold as the two horses went to the line together. He carried 59kg to win first-up last start and judging by this jumpout, he should be going close first-up this preparation. 

Jumpout 2 (650m) 41.82s 
I had my eye on the Mick Price duo in this jumpout and it was three-year-old filly CRACK THE CODE that caught my eye. She scored a tough win on debut down the Flemington straight before finishing down the crack in a listed race in Adelaide. She looks to have come back a bigger and stronger filly. She sat outside the leader and eventual winner in this jumpout. Jockey Damien Oliver kept her under a strong hold and she was never asked for an effort. I believe she can run well in some early three-year-old races. 

Heart Of A Lion
Crack The Code

Flemington Jumpouts - Friday August 3

Jumpout 1 (800m) 46.93s
Looking at this field on paper, there was clearly an odd horse out. We had group class horses Hey Doc, Poetic Dream, Odeon and Tahi. Then there was a three-year-old maiden NUCLEAR BLITZ. Watching the jumpout, there was no odd horse out. Nuclear Blitz settled down last, before cruising through the field under a hold, getting to the flanks of the winner Hey Doc in the last 50m. I blackbooked Nuclear Blitz from the Jumpouts before her debut back in February and I have the same, if not a higher opinion of the horse now. This Sepoy filly is going places. 

Jumpout 6 (800m) 47.81s 
I was extremely impressed with the performance of the Tony McEvoy-trained ILLUMICON. The Nicconi gelding failed in stakes grade last preparation but returned an impressive winner at Sandown a fortnight ago. He has taken improvement from that run and bolted in his jumpout. The Jockey couldn’t hold him slow enough inside the final furlong, easing him down over the final 100m to win by a length in fast time. Add him to the blackbook and expect a good Spring preparation. 

Jumpout 14 (800m) 48.23s
Five-year-old gelding ATLANTIC EXPRESS has only two wins from 26 starts, but looks to have returned in good order judging by this jumpout. He travelled strongly in the run and wasn’t asked for an effort, finishing alongside Blue Diamond Stakes runner-up Enbihaar and her stablemate Muswellbrook. The ability is there for Atlantic Express, he finished 1.65 lengths behind Widgee Turf and has performed well in the past, he looks to have come back in very good order. 

Jumpout 18 (800m) 48.67s
Jumpout 18 provided a smart prospect from the Lindsay Park stable. Unraced three-year-old filly VESICO had the blinkers on and looks an above average talent. She showed speed to lead from an inside barrier and showed a high cruising speed while others were off the bridal. She was given a soft time of it over the final furlong and still won by three-lengths. Despite being unraced, she looks a professional filly and is one to follow when she steps out.
