SUPER Rockhampton sprinter Our Boy Malachi has thrilled connections following an excellent barrier trial performance at Rosehill in Sydney on Tuesday

Our Boy Malachi was put under the microscope of his new training camp Team Hawkes for the first occasion when he stepped-out in a hot field of sprinters trialling over 900 metres.

Ridden by stable jockey James McDonald, Our Boy Malachi finished 0.6 length third behind Encostanati and Lilliburlero.
Col Donovan, Rockhampton's managing part-owner of Our Boy Malachi said the sprinter was only a nose away third from Lilliburlero which was beaten a half length.

"Michael Hawkes rang me just after the trial and I reckon he was breaking out in carbuncles as he was excited. He said our horse travelled wide and surprisingly to me didn't lead.

Michael's words were that Our Boy Malachi is now ready to race. He said he would look for a race now," Donovan confirmed.

At Callaghan Park barrier trials in Rockhampton on Monday, the Rockhampton Cup winner Vandalised indicated a first-up sprint win is not beyond him.

Stepping-out for the first time being unplaced at Doomben on July 12 after previously winning the Rocky Cup, Vandalised was given an easy trial by race jockey Brad Stewart.

Stewart answered an SOS from trainer Jamie McConachy to fly up and ride a team of his horses at the trial heats and he wasn't let down by Vandalised's 1.25 lengths second behind Touch'N'Go.
