Darryl Sherer - Monday October 16

Sometimes the obvious is staring you right in the face and that was the case last Friday.

Some proven horses were out in the early heats and the quality stood out with Group performed Ravi and Trekking looking sharp in winning their heats.

Friday's heats were on the steeple grass and on the rail, ground riding in the good(3) range.

Racenet has highlighted three horses for punters to follow in the coming weeks.

Settled straight on the lead in heat two and always travelling strongly under Hugh Bowman. This was run quite slowly through the first half before getting serious late, Ravi defeating the James Cummings-trained Demonstrate by one length in 45.75 seconds with the Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra-trained Smart Coupe the same distance away third in a pleasing first jumpout this time in. The five-year-old mare trained by Peter and Paul Snowden won the Group III Sheraco Stakes at Rosehill first-up and just missed last time out when a desperately unlucky third to Savanna Amour in the Group III How Now Stakes at Caulfield on September 23. There should be a nice mares race coming up for her in the coming weeks.
Career (16-6:2:3)

This James Cummings-trained three-year-old colt is nominated for the Blue Sapphire Stakes at Caulfield on Wednesday and prepped with a strong hitout in heat six. Settled in fourth place early under Craig Williams before being allowed to come through between horses inside the final 100m to defeat the Levi Kavanagh-trained Kentucky Breeze by 1 1/2-lengths in 44.88 seconds. Finished runner-up to Trapeze Artist in the Group III Black Opal Stakes last season and beaten less than two lengths last time out behind Merchant Navy in the Group III HDF McNeil Stakes at Caulfield.
Career (5-1:1:1)

Unraced three-year-old colt by Ocean Park, trained by Chris Waller. Settled last in heat 11 and unhurried before starting to hit stride inside the final 100m, going through the line fourth of five in 45.45 seconds but running up behind horses and untested behind the Lindsay Park Racing-trained Rerelease. Has been brought long patiently and hard to be definitive on a trial like this but he shapes as a horse with ability although he is unlikely to find a soft maiden in the next month.
