ROSEHILL November 24: The appearance of an unraced youngster from a Victorian stable created interest in the only 2YO heat over 900m. Matt Laurie would have been pleased to see his Shalaa filly CHILLED handle the clockwise direction with confidence to win the heat in an obvious prep for a Magic Millions bid. She settled some five lengths off the pace and had to travel three wide but was never off the bit making ground strongly over the last 200m for a soft win in fair time for the session (54.90; 35.31). The quickest 800m heat of the session (53.17; 33.45) was won by the fast filly TSARINA SOPHIA.

GOSFORD November 21: The fastest of the two 2YO heats over 800m was won by DECIDUOUS (47.36; 33.94), a robust colt by The Autumn Sun who was having his second trial after a placing at Randwick. Note that he had first use of the track to record the fastest time in the 13 heats over the distance.
