9/8/2017 Randwick Barrier Trials

Randwick hosted the barrier trials on Tuesday morning with many leading Spring contenders barrier trialling.
Exciting three-year-old colt Pariah (Redoute’s Choice) has put the Golden Rose Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m)
and the $10,000,000 The Everest (1200m) firmly on the agenda after a promising barrier trial performance at Randwick yesterday.
The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained colt, who was runner-up to Catchy (Fastnet Rock) in this year’s Blue Diamond Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m), finished second to Winx (Street Cry) in heat one of the Randwick barrier trials over 1000 metres yesterday.
Ridden by Blake Shinn, Pariah jumped well in the barrier trial before taking a trail in fourth position behind Stampede (High Chaparral) and was not pushed out to finish three quarters of a length behind Winx.
Pariah had won a 740 metre barrier trial at Randwick on 10 July and is now likely to be aimed at the Golden Rose Stakes at Rosehill on 23 September.
ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m) winner Invader (Snitzel), a stablemate of Pariah, ran fifth behind Winx and Pariah yesterday, improving on his last-placed finish in a 740 metre barrier trial at Randwick
on 10 July.
In heat two, also over 1000 metres, the Snowdens had Group One winners Russian Revolution (Snitzel) and Redzel (Snitzel) barrier trial for the first time this campaign.
Redzel led early before Russian Revolution took over out wide on the course, to finish third a neck behind Dixie Blossoms (Street Sense), who won the barrier trial for jockey Corey Brown and trainer Ron Quinton.
The Bjorn Baker-trained three-year-old Champagne Cuddles (Not A Single Doubt) closed strongly to grab second, with Russian Revolution (Hugh Bowman) in third place. Redzel, who was ridden by Shinn, ran
fifth, one length behind Dixie Blossoms.
