CARIBBEAN ROSE looks a great chance in the Skycity Hamilton 1600 at Te Rapa this weekend. Working over 1000 on the plough, she was sent 1000 and clocked 1.08, cruising through the line hard held in 39.3. She’s drawn beautifully and has Matt Cameron aboard and should be highly competitive.

Stablemate PINEAPPLE LUMP followed, and will be a race rival on Sunday, going 1.12, 38.5. He also looks well meaning, the Baker/Forsman team have a strong hand in the race.

A third stablemate, KRAKADEEL, will be making it three runners for the team in the race. He worked over 1000 also clocking 1.06, 39.3.

Group 1 winner NICOLETTA strutted her stuff over 1000 in 1.08, 39.3. HIGHLAD followed in 1.09, 41.2. Hugely promising SIMPLY OPTIMISTIC looked a treat when casually strolling 800 in 55.3.
