June has been a good month for Hidden Dragon who kicked off the month with a highly successful Saturday - five winners on the first day of the month.

Leading the way was the in-form Hidden Warrior, a Group 3 winner last spring who has been back in flying form the the Paul Perry stable.

Successful at Rosehill in mid-May, he was again too good at that track - recording his fourth victory from just 11 starts.

"He is going well," said Perry, noting that "it was a good effort today to chase the leader and do all the work."

"He has always shown a little something," he continued - adding that the flashy chestnut may have a spell in preparation for a spring campaign.

"He will be a better horse for it," he said, noting that Hidden Warrior is only just learning how to be a racehorse.

"He chases well and settles well which he did not do before."

Jockey Nathan Berry has always had a good opinion of Hidden Warrior - "he has always had a lot of talent," he said - "we have just been waiting for the penny to drop."

"I think riding him with a sit now and giving him something to follow helps and he is not lugging on the turn now. He is still doing a few little things wrong down the straight but it just shows that there is more improvement there."

On the same day the speedy juvenile Mythologist won his fourth in a row, proving too strong for his rivals over 1000m at Emerald. Meanwhile Hidden Duck bolted in with his maiden at the Sunshine Coast, saluting over 1100m by a soft 5 1/4 lengths and Titanomagnetite was another new Hidden Dragon winner, taking our her maiden by nearly three lengths over 900m at the Gold Coast.

Like A Gee Six was another easy winner, saluting by by 2 1/2 lengths at Warwick and since then Find Me A Dragon (game breaking her maiden at Taree at only her third outing), Erebus (2Y0 winner at Cairns), Boom Sha La, Hide N Seek and Slysera have all been local winners for Hidden Dragon whilst in Singapore Jeram Rose Wood was in recent winning form.
