Berry praises winning duo

January 17, 2013 10:49:20 UK

Group 1 winning duo Laser Hawk and Glencadam Gold trialled impressively at Randwick this morning finishing first and third respectively.

Gai Waterhouse had a large contingent of gallopers to trial today which is no real surprise given the stable is gearing up for the rich autumn.

Six horses from the Waterhouse stable won heats, however it was Laser Hawk and Glencadam Gold who each ran in 1200m Open heats early in the morning that had everyone's attention.

Tommy Berry who was kept busy throughout the morning rode both Laser Hawk and Glencadam Gold.

"They both trialled very well," Berry said.

Laser Hawk who was ruled out of a spring preparation last year through injury won his 1200m heat by 1.8 lengths this morning.

"He's worked nice at home but he only does what he has to," Berry said.

"I made him find the line a little bit in his trial and he really attacked it."

The Artie Schiller gelding has trialled twice now this campaign having finished second in a previous tryout over 1050m at Randwick on 4th January.

Berry believes the injury Rosehill Guineas winner sustained nearly a year ago is a distant memory.

"He is a beautiful big striding horse," Berry said.

"He has so many gears that horse and I think he is another horse who what you saw of him last preparation is only a glimpse of the ability of what he's got now.

"He is pretty laid back so to get everything out of him you need to be full on."

Glencadem Gold, a Group 1 winner during his first Australian preparation last spring, finished third behind his stablemate Spurtonic.

"Glencadam Gold went to the line under a bit of riding to run third which was really good for him because he has never been a flash trialler," Berry said.

"He had a big blow when he pulled up so he has plenty to work with."

"He is a different horse," Berry said.

"I think what we saw last preparation was only the start for him.

"He is a lot stronger and his work is a lot more sustained. He can sustain a nice long run in his work and he was a bit like that in his trial today.

"He kept whacking away. His trial was over 1200m, it was his first one and there is plenty more to work with."

The next major Sydney trials will be conducted at Rosehill next Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Ransomed is 4.25 to win the Wellington Cup while Chaparrone is 8.00 and My Scotsgrey is 10.00.
