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:

Ballarat Jumpouts - Monday January 14

Jumpout 1 (900m) 56.80s 
The horse to follow from the opening jumpout of the morning at Ballarat is the Dan O’Sullivan-trained HORSE FOR HIGHER. The three-year-old filly is still new but looks to have stacks of ability. She was last on the fence early and when the gap opened up in the straight, she charged through to run a nice third. She shied away at the winning post and does look like a horse who will appreciate being on the outside of runners.

Jumpout 5 (900m) 55.60s 
It was hard not to be impressed with the Darren Weir-trained HULK. The I Am Invincible colt is unraced and looks to have a nice future. He jumped straight to the front and controlled the jumpout, kicking off the bend and putting up three lengths early in the straight. When asked for an effort at the furlong, he really knuckled down and put four-lengths on his two stablemates who were both under riding. Hulk looks a promising type. 

Jumpout 7 (900m) 57.56s
No blackbookers from this jumpout but Group One winner Land Of Plenty won the heat. He looks like he has returned in terrific order and is on track for the Autumn Carnival. 

Jumpout 9 (900m) 57.16s 
The clear standout from this jumpout was the Darren Weir-trained INVINCIBLE FILLE. Yet another I Am Invincible runner to make the blackbook, the three-year-old filly performed well in her first preparation, winning impressively on debut at Mildura, running the quickest last 200m and 400m sectionals of the day before going to Adelaide and taking on the likes of Gytrash. She looks to have returned well, finishing second in this jumpout under a strong hold whilst the leader was under the whip. They put a gap on third which indicates that Invincible Fille is pretty smart. 

Jumpout 13 (900m) 55.12s
Darren Weir had five of the six runners involved in this jumpout and surprisingly it is the James Wardeiner-trained WILD GERANIUM that could be the most impressive runner of the morning. You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t heard the name James Wardeiner before as he has only had seven winners from 161 career runners. The unraced four-year-old mare Wild Geranium have the Weir runners a galloping lesson, jumping straight to the front and bolting away to win by roughly six-lengths eased up. She ran the quickest time of the morning and I can’t wait to see her debut.

Cranbourne Jumpouts - Monday December 17 

Jumpout 4 (800m) 50.40s 
With caution, I’m adding VANDERWINK to the blackbook. The three-year-old Rip Van Winkle gelding did plenty wrong on debut at Mornington, finishing a long last as a solid $4.00 second favourite. He sat three-wide, overraced and then went towards the outside fence on the home turn before being eased out of the race. He was suspended from racing and was forced to have an official jumpout, which we saw this morning. He was very sharp in his work, going to the line under a strong hold, with the Nikki Burke-trained Fight who was under riding to go with him. He has plenty of talent and only needs the penny to drop, to be winning races.

Jumpout 7 (800m) 49.80s 
The Robbie Griffiths-trained CLASSIC DIVA didn’t come up last preparation but she looks to have returned in terrific order, with an easy victory in this jumpout. She travelled well with the blinkers on and extended under no riding, for an effortless four-length victory. 

Classic Diva

Flemington Jumpouts - Friday December 14 

Jumpout 1 (800m) 49.19s 
I’m not adding a horse to our blackbook from this jumpout but I have to mention GEORGE PATTON. The six-year-old gelding is already in our blackbook after his impressive jumpout at Flemington a fortnight ago. He stepped out for another gallop and was even more impressive this morning. He settled last and was still at the tail of the field at the 150m, before charging through a gap under a strong hold. He picked up the field effortlessly and went the line with the Lindsay Park galloper Magnikka, who was under riding with blinkers on. If the Snowden team can keep him sound, I’m convinced George Patton is a Group winner in waiting. 

Jumpout 2 (800m) 51.17s 
Another Snowden runner to add to the blackbook, I was taken with the jumpout of MISSILE MANTRA. The unraced daughter of Smart Missile, this two-year-old filly is a beautiful, free-striding filly, who looked to be cruising behind the winner. The Ellerton & Zahra horse was under riding for the final furlong, whilst Missile Mantra was under a hold, cruising in second. She looks a nice type and is worth following. 

Jumpout 5 (800m) 49.10s 
Jumpout number five was the fastest of the morning at Flemington and that was thanks to the Michael Moroney-trained ALBURQ. The two-year-old Colt led in his on career start, the 2YO Magic Millions Clockwise Classic and just faded late to run third, as his stablemate won the race. His jumpout this morning was impressive, quickly gathering up the Mark Kavanagh-trained Greetie in the straight. Moroney has said he will target the 2YO Magic Millions on the Gold Coast and although that may be too tough for him, he should be winning soon. Watch for him dropping back to maiden grade.

Caulfield Jumpouts - Tuesday December 11 

Jumpout 1 (800m) 47.55s 
I’ve followed this son of Lonhro, LANGHRO through his career. The lightly-raced six-year-old showed plenty of potential at the trials and jumpouts early in career but was too much of a colt to put it together on raceday. He was gelded at the end of 2017 and returned with a four-length victory in Benchmark 64 grade and a five and a half-length victory in Benchmark 70 grade. Trainer Mick Price has bypassed the Spring with him and he should progress through to win a nice city race over the summer months. He has returned well, striding straight to the lead in this jumpout and doing the work effortlessly, with his head on his chest. Watch for his return. 

Jumpout 4 (800m) 48.29s 
The Henry Dwyer-trained horse Desirada looks a very speedy filly but it’s the John Maloney-trained SIR GAWAIN that I want to follow from this jumpout. He is certainly a colt. He didn’t look to have his mind completely on the job when racing the filly on his inside. He was swishing his tail and was green but certainly has ability. I liked the way he attacked the line in the final 100m. I don’t think this field are world beaters but Sir Gawain can be followed in maiden grade.

Sir Gawain

Werribee Jumpouts - Monday December 10 

Jumpout 1 (1100m) 1.06.16s 
With the rail in the true position at Werribee, it felt more like a race meeting with big fields. This jumpout was clearly the faster of the two 1100m jumpouts and It’s the four-year-old commands gelding RENEGADE that I want to blackbook. Trained by Tony McEvoy, he was a clear standout from this jumpout, sitting outside the leader before putting his rivals away under a strong hold. His rivals included Hang Man who won a Benchmark 78 at Metro level last start. I’ll be keen to back Renegade first-up in a suitable race. 

Jumpout 3 (800m) 47.87s
Trainer Mark Kavanagh has a small stable these days and his stable star ATLANTIC CITY looks to have returned in terrific order. The six-year-old performs best on firm tracks and Kavanagh has bypassed the spring to target some Summer races. His jumpout was extremely impressive, he cruised up to the Lindsay Park horse on his inside at the 400m and took the lead before extending his margin inside the final furlong, winning by two-lengths in clearly the quickest time of the morning. His work was done under a strong hold and the blinkers on in this jumpout signal intent first-up.

Jumpout 4 (800m) 48.38s 
My pick of the unraced horses this morning at Werribee is the two-year-old Lonhro filly LYRE. She looks to have a very bright future. It’s interesting to note, that this filly is owned by Godolphin by trained by Anthony Freedman. She settled back and wide in the jumpout before building into her work in the straight. She was never let off the bridle and still chased hard behind the Lindsay Park galloper Movie Role who was off the bit. She looked like she could’ve won the jumpout by five-lengths if the rider let her and is clearly one for the blackbook. 

Atlantic City

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
