Berry Most Impressed With Joyful Trial Win

A full sister to supermare More Joyous has enjoyed a trial win at Randwick on Thursday with the impeccably bred Most Joyful impressing jockey Tommy Berry.

Glencadam Gold was one of the trial winners to impress Tommy Berry at Randwick Thursday morning

The two-year-old More Than Ready filly out of Sunday Silence mare Sunday Joy certainly has big shoes to fill with her older sister More Joyous having won an incredible eight Group 1 wins to date, but the promising juvenile who is also prepared by Gai Waterhouse is certainly doing everything right in these early stages.

After her inaugural trial over 850m at Warwick Farm when second in September last year when ridden by Nash Rawiller, Most Joyful showed nice progression at Royal Randwick for her second trial when scoring a narrow win over the Ron Quinton-trained Skein over 740m in a good time of 44.30.

It was enough to catch Berry’s attention, and while he is holding off from too many comparisons between the youngster and More Joyous who he has never ridden under race conditions, he was certainly full of praise.

“That trial (her first) was probably a little disappointing because she worked so well leading into it,” Berry said on Thursday.

“She’s a ready-made two-year-old that jumped well (today), took up a spot, relaxed and then quickened when asked.

“This is a serious horse but the reality is she only needs a quarter of the ability of her sister to be winning good races.”

Most Joyful wasn’t the only runner at Thursday morning’s hitouts to excite Berry either.

His first ride of the morning was aboard Waterhouse’s imported stayer Glencadam Gold who was a credible third over 1200m behind stablemates Spurtonic and Queenstown.

Five-year-old Refuse To Bend gelding Glencadam Gold won the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick by four lengths last October before finishing 15th and 6th respectively in the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups and Berry believes they will be right up there again this time in.

“He’s come back better than last prep, which is typical of the Europeans,” he said.

“They usually go better in their second prep.

“That’s actually quite scary given he was beaten four lengths in a Melbourne Cup.

“The thing I noticed about him is he’s able to make a longer, more sustained run this time in and that will prove a huge bonus when he gets up in distance because he does have that good turn of foot.”

Along with Most Joyful Berry also rode three other winners for Waterhouse at the hitouts with Laser Hawk, Raceway and Projectile.

The most notable of these is Artie Schiller four-year-old Laser Hawk, a half-brother to Desert War, who was a standout for the stable as a three-year-old last autumn with a third to Mosheen in the Randwick Guineas, a good win over subsequent Cox Plate hero Ocean Park in the Rosehill Guineas and then third to Ethiopia in the Australian Derby.

“He’s got gears, and lots of them. The long lay-off hasn’t affected him,” Berry said of Laser Hawk who won their 1200m heat in 1:13.6 seconds.

“From what I felt this morning, I’d suggest we’ve only seen the tip of his ability so far.”
