Heats 1 and 2 of tomorrow's Balnarring Jump Outs will see a trio of Feek Racing runners tune up for their late autumn/winter campaigns.
4yo gelding SENOR ALF will have his second trial for the preparation as he approaches a return to racing and a possible trip to Warrnambool in a month for the big May carnival. The 3-time winner will stretch out over 1000m in the first heat of the morning which includes the likes of former Hong Kong Group 1 winner Beauty Flame and city winning mare World of Hope.
'He'll stretch his legs a little bit more over the 1000m tomorrow after an easy initial trial a fortnight ago'. Said David Feek from his Mornington base.
'He's in good shape and I'm expecting him to relax and just finish it off at his own leisure'.
'Alfy' will be joined by stablemate LIBERTY EXPRESS, who returns from a freshen up after an encouraging third at Kilmore back on the 1st of February. The 4yo daughter of Statue of Liberty has raced just three times and looks to be an improving type who will continue to progress with further racing and experience.
'Liberty Express is a nice mare who has needed time to mature. She's an improving type who will have an easy hit out at Balnarring to bring her fitness levels up'. Said David Feek.
'I'll assess how she comes through the hit out before making any plans, she might need one more before heading to the races'.
Trial morning will be wrapped up early for Team Feek when ALBERT'S LASS makes her long awaited return in Heat 2 of the morning over 1000m. The talented daughter of Magic Albert was a winner at Kilmore back in September last year, beating subsequent Group 3 winner and Group 1 placed filly RIMRAAM. She will have her first trial for the preparation in what co-trainer Coral Feek described as nothing more than a conditioning hit out.
'She is having her first trial for the preparation so we won't ask much of her tomorrow'. Said Coral Feek after working the mare at Mornington.
'We will let her go through her paces tomorrow and just work to the line where she is comfortable. She'll need another one before going to the races, however we are thrilled to have her back and so close to making a return'.
'A stakes race wouldn't be out of reach for this mare once he gets out to 1600m'.
Stay tuned for a post trial report from Balnarring tomorrow.
