Track Work 11 July 2019

Another foggy morning at Cambridge prevented the timing of most gallops.

Working on a heavy No 2 grass with the markers near the inside, Ruakaka candidate REDCAYENNE got through the conditions well when coming in from the 1000m in a comfortable 1:8.3, running the last 600m in 39.5.

He has been in top form this campaign and will again be hard to beat in a handy line up in the ITM /Gib Whangarei Gold Cup this weekend.

With no local meeting on this weekend few gallops took place.

Te Rapa candidates’ INDIGENOUS UNION and BEAU JEU galloped as well as any on a heavy track at Cambridge today.

Working 10m out on the No2 grass, the stablemates were on terms at the completion of 1400m, timed in 1:41.4, running the final 600m in 40.5.

INDIGENOUS UNION has derived benefit from his fresh up run at Ruakaka over 1600m, and the rise in distance this weekend should see him right in the finish.

BEAU JEU, who has had two nice runs since resuming, will handle the heavy ground at Te Rapa and has a good record over 2100m.

PACORUS looked in excellent order when sent 1200m in 1:23.6, the last 600m in 40. He heads to Awapuni this weekend and will have the services of the in-form 3kg claiming apprentice Hazel Schofer.

SKAABOOM strode in from the 1000m in 1:10.1, coming home in 41. She is a consistent type who should again be competitive at Te Rapa.

MR INCREDIBULL, who could not have been more impressive when breaking maiden ranks at Te Awamutu late last month, left 1000m behind in a comfortable 1;12. Increasing from the 600m in 39.2, he will be very hard to beat at Te Aroha this Sunday.

TOMELILLA galloped well in a solo work-out on a quiet morning at Cambridge.

With the No 2 grass in use, with the markers 10m out, TOMELILLA looked at peak fitness for Tauranga this weekend when sent 1200m, completing the final 1000 in 1:6.1, sprinting the last 600m in 38.1.

She has been working well over recent weeks but needs drastic race day improvement to figure in the finish.

BLUE EYED SUSIE and TUNDRA were in good form when clocked over 1000m in 1:5.7, finishing off in 37.5.

PACORUS was not after time, but travelled sweetly from the 1200m in 1:23 coming home in 42.6.

LAMBRUSCO came in from the 600m in 39.4.

On the sand, NEW YORK MINUTE followed nice Tuesday work with a comfortable 1000m in 1:8.2, the final 600m in 39.8.

FRANKLIN and HIGHLAD left 1400m behind in 1:29, with the last 600m clocked in 41.

CRAFTY JESS and ELLE EYE ARE came to the end of 1000m in 1:7.4, finishing off in 39.6.

Track pick NEW YORK MINUTE has worked well since a disappointing fresh up run at Trentham. Give her another chance.

Track Work 18 June 2019

NEW YORK MINUTE looks set to repay the faithful this weekend after completing outstanding work this morning.

Galloping on the inside of a dead/slow No2 grass, which is conducive to fast times, NEW YORK MINUTE hit the line slightly ahead of stable mate TOMELILLA when timed from the 1000m in 1:3.1, dashing the final 600m in 34.6.

Both travelled sweetly throughout. NEW YORK MINUTE cost punters a fortune when disappointing fresh up at Trentham, but should be forgiven for the run on a very tricky track.

She will race in The Ultimate Ford and Mazda Tauranga Classic over 1400m at Tauranga this Saturday and with regular track rider Jonathan Riddell taking the mount she should be hard to beat.

TIPICAL and SKAABOOM maintained a solid pace from the 1000m in 1:4 finishing off in 34.9. REDCAYENNE worked nicely over 1200m, clocked in 1:18.4, sprinting the 600m in 36.3.

Track Work – Thursday, 6 June 2019

Birdsong and Darcee Que, two of four 2yos from the leading Baker/Forsman stable set to debut at Te Rapa this weekend,rounded off their preparation in fine style this morning.

Working 12m out on a heavy No2 grass Birdsong and Darcee Que galloped well together from the 800m sprinting the final 600m in 38.2. Stable mates and race rivals, Marroni and Not Usual Litening looked fit when completing the last 600m of their work in 39.6. All four should be competitive but Birdsong looks the best winning chance for me.

Yatima, who has been in solid form recently, followed good Tuesday work with another nice gallop over 1000m running the last 600m under a hold in 40.5. New York Minute left 800m behind in 54 with the last 600m in 40.2. She is at very short odds in the open 1200m at Trentham but her recent work suggests she will be extremely hard to beat.

Last start winner Elle Eye Are came in from the 600m in 40.3. She steps up to 2200m at Te Rapa this weekend. Crafty Jess enhanced her Te Rapa prospects with lovely work over 1000m clocked in 1:8.3 finishing off in 38.6 Manhattan Flame and Malibu Flame were together at the finish of their gallop running the final 600m in 38.3.

Blue Eyed Suzy was timed from the 600m in 39.2. Triple Treat came to the end of 1200m in an easy 1:28 home in 43.9. Rage In The Castle ran 600m in 42.

Kanzac ran 1000m in 1:9.2 and 40. Eradani and Southern Quest matched strides from the 800m in 55.6.
