Waller Happy With Barrier Trial Efforts

Chris Waller dominated the opening barrier trial at Rosehill Gardens this morning and the leading Sydney trainer was happy with the effort of his five horses.

Waller had Kencella, Sacred Falls, Hawkspur, Boban and Foreteller in the barrier trial over 900 metres and they all worked home fairly within being asked for an extra effort to finish behind Team Hawkes-trained Angel Bee.

The Premiership winning trainer said that all of his horses performed as expected and told TVN that he is just hoping that they get through the trial well as they continue to build towards the start of their 2014 Spring Racing Carnival campaigns.

“It was pretty standard,” Waller said.

“We weren’t out there to break any records and a few of them have their winter bellies on and it is still a long time before the main races start,

“They were just out there to get a bit of nervous energy, have a bit of a sweat and stretch their legs in a nice quiet trial.

“The point is to get them home safely and eating up.”

Leading jockey Tommy Berry has returned to Australia after a successful stint in Hong Kong and he partnered two-time Doncaster Mile winner in the barrier trial this morning.

Berry has partnered Sacred Falls throughout his racing career and the in-form hoop said that the O’Reilly entire felt like a stronger horse ahead of his 2014 Spring Racing Carnival preparation that is set to include a tilt at the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m).

“I was very happy with his trial this morning and very happy that he has come back that touch stronger this preparation,” Berry said.

“I have ridden him in his trials his last three preparations and he has just come back that touch stronger every time and little bit more mature.

“He has won two Doncasters now and hopefully he can on win a couple more Group 1s for the team.”

Team Hawkes-trained Messene and Entirely Platinum both performed well in the barrier trial and are also working towards a return to racing during the 2014 Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

Messene has been set for the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) and will return to the races towards the end of August, while Team Hawkes are hoping to qualify Entirely Platinum for the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m).
