Snitzerland and All Too Hard Impress in Trial

With spring looming, highly-rated three-year-olds Snitzerland and All Too Hard trialled strongly at Rosehill this morning.

All Too Hard

All Too Hard trialled strongly at Rosehill this morning

Over 900 metres, Gerald Ryan-trained filly Snitzerland just edged out All Too Hard who was ridden well within himself by Rod Quinn.

Snitzerland, who finished second to Pierro in the Golden Slipper, finished the hitout in 53.51 seconds as stablemate Villa Splendido ran home in third position.

Another of Snitzerland’s stablemates, Cavalry Rose, set the early pace in the trial as All Too Hard was allowed to relax at the back of the six-horse field.

Neither horse was asked to fully exert in the trial and All Too Hard came from three wide and last at the turn to cruise home in second, sending an ominous warning to his rivals ahead of the spring.

While the racing plan is yet to be decided for All Too Hard, Snitzerland will begin her spring campaign in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on August 18.

Trainer Gerald Ryan has outlined five spring races for the daughter of Snitzel with her grand final to come in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington in November.

Great anticipation surrounds the return of All Too Hard with the half-brother to Black Caviar facing a potential rematch with superstar colt Pierro.

After going unbeaten in the first three starts of his career, the exciting colt finished runner-up to Pierro in the Group 1 Sires’ Produce Stakes on April 14.

Trained by John, Michael and Wayne Hawkes, All Too Hard may meet Pierro in the prestigious Caulfield Guineas, a race Gai Waterhouse has already highlighted as one of Pierro’s spring targets.
