A metropolitan win in town for Jasmine Cornish … just ticking another box … came on July 27 at Doomben when Hoot ‘N’ Holler landed a QTIS Two-Year-Old Handicap over 1200m, making it three wins in a row for the very promising daughter of Holler.

Cornish had partnered Hoot ‘N’ Holler in her previous start in which she took out a QTIS Two-Year-Old Handicap over 1100m at the Gold Coast. She rode it to perfection that time … and again gave her a ten out of ten ride here.

Hoot ‘N’ Holler ($4.20) landed in the leading line, but Cornish then let the Robert Heathcote trained runner settle and find her feet, going back to second, then third, then fourth in the back straight, but always staying within three lengths of the lead.

Hoot ‘N’ Holler was taken three wide on the turn by Cornish, allowing the filly to straighten in clear air and able to line up a straight run to the line.

At that stage Cripps Tonite (the $2.80 favourite), who had led from the break, was trying to kick away again at the head of affairs, but Cornish now had Hoot ‘N’ Holler in full chase mode and she gradually began to reel in the long-time leader.

Cripps Tonite had some fight in him, but not enough to be able to repel Hoot ‘N’ Holler’s steady, sustained run home.

Hoot ‘N’ Holler took Cripps Tonite’s measure inside the final 100m and she then had more than enough in hand to see off the late challenge of Echo Hunter ($16), another Robert Heathcote trained runner, by a 0.75 length margin.

Hoot ‘N’ Holler is now a three time winner from only five starts having won over three different distances (1000, 1110m and 1200m) at three different tracks (Toowoomba, Gold Coast and Doomben) which all adds up to a very positive grounding for a runner who could not have rounded off her two-year-old career in a better fashion.
