Two fillies show out at Hastings jumpouts 2 Feb 2018

   A three-year-old filly by Jimmy Choux and a two-year-old filly by Rip Van Winkle produced eye-catching performances at today’s Hastings jumpouts.

   There were five heats held up against the running rail on the course proper, where the footing was good.

   The two fillies contested the first of the three 750-metre heats and finished first and second. The Jimmy Choux three-year-old is trained by John Bary and flew the gates to be a clear lead at the end of the first 100 metres. She never looked like being headed from there, cruising to the line for a 6 length win. It was a very professional performance.

  The Rip Van Winkle filly is prepared by Patrick Campbell and was having her first jumpout. She was slow to get into full stride but made up many lengths in the home straight and was doing her best work at the finish. She is well bred, being out of the Redoute’s Choice mare Dorotea Dior.

   Matt Cain clocked the fastest time of the three 750-metre heats when winning by three-quarters of a length from the more experienced Van Halen in 45.4s. He is an unraced four-year-old by Danroad trained by Sue Thompson and Mick Brown.
