2015 Golden Slipper Hopefuls Impress at Barrier Trial

They’ve yet to debut in a race but colts Outreach and Mawahibb both solidified their 2015 Golden Slipper chances in a Rosehill barrier trial on Tuesday.

It’s safe to say that both colts have very high expectations set upon them with each having a sister win the $3.5 million race in previous years but they well and truly lived up to them on Tuesday as they crossed the line together.

The pair had three and a half lengths on third placer Chamarel and recorded the fastest timed juvenile heat of the morning at 53 seconds for the 900 metres.

Outreach’s co-trainer Peter Snowden was pleased with the trial but admitted the colt still has a lot to do to ready himself for the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill on March 21, noting that the raw colt could be tested in the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) first up at the end of the month on the same track.

“He is a nice horse and he has done everything right. He is just a natural running horse. He has got nice ability – how much we are about to find out,” he told The Sydney Morning Herald.

“That was the first time he has been clicked up.

“He has run the fastest time of the day at his second trial; you can’t ask for more than that.

“He is still very new and very raw. He has got ability and at this stage he may run [the Canonbury Stakes] on January 31.”

Outreach’s sister Overreach won the Golden Slipper in 2013 while Mawahibb is the half-brother of last year’s winner Mossfun.

The Team Hawkes-trained colt was an impressive winner of a Randwick barrier trial back in September but the trainers opted to rest him during the spring and not rush his first start.

“He has come back well and looks well. He is bigger and stronger. He wasn’t ready for [the spring], although he trialled really well at Randwick,” co-trainer Michael Hawkes said.

“He went good [in Tuesday’s trial], he travelled well. He did what he had to do.

“We just wanted him to trial before working out where he would go and we will assess him in the next couple of days. Obviously you are aiming toward the major races, but where they start is a different thing to where they finish.”

Neither horse is featured in the 2015 Golden Slipper futures odds at Ladbrokes.com.au yet but look for that to change following their debut starts.
