Astern's Sister Delivers In Trial

By Brad Gray

Astern’s half-sister Alizee made a big impression in her first public barrier trial on Tuesday morning at Rosehill Gardens.

The Sepoy filly (out of Essaouria) had to compete with the likes of Winx, Star Turn and Chautuaqua for the limelight be she more than held her own, displaying tactical speed and acceleration in clocking the fastest time of the two-year-old heats. She looked more like a colt than a filly compared to her rivals.

“We wanted her to have a positive morning and she’s produced a good, professional effort,” said Godolphin’s assistant trainer Darren Beadman.

“She did everything right, jumped well, relaxed, travelled smoothly. James Doyle rode her and he said she’d handled everything very well.”

Alizee joins Astern, Mogador and Marrakesh as foals out of Essaouria.

Alizee's first public appearance

A total of twelve two-year-olds jumped out in Godolphin’s royal blue and among them were Tiki Bar, also by Sepoy, who the stable also have a good opinion of and Impending’s full sister Epidemic, who was luckless on debut in the Pierro Plate back in October.

Gerald Ryan's colt Condor Heroes clocked the second fastest time of the morning of the juveniles, winning by 7.8L in a brilliant display of speed. He debuted with a second behind Khan in the ATC Breeders Plate.

As for Astern himself, the star colt will trial again shortly before kicking off his autumn campaign in the Group One Lightning Stakes at Flemington.
