Track Work 12 October 2017

ELEONORA showed she is ready to produce a bold fresh up run in this weekend’s Team Wealleans Matamata Cup, with nice final work.

Galloping on a slow No 4 grass ELEONORA appeared to have the measure of stablemate and race rival GRAND RIO at the completion of 1000m, run in 1:9, sprinting the final 600m in 39.1.

ELEONORA, who was placed in a recent trial, has been working well lately and looks a huge chance.

PACORUS, another fresh runner in the Matamata feature, was in good form over 1000m in 1:8.3, finishing off in 39. He also looks well but has a big weight to overcome.

FRANCALETTA, who will start favourite in this weekend’s Rich Hill Stud Taranaki Breeders Stakes (WFA) for Fillies and Mares, looked at peak fitness when completing a comfortable 1000m, the last 600m clocked in 40.8.

DEALS IN HEELS and HONEY RIDER left 1000m behind in 1:7.9, the final 600m in 38.3.

CHOU CHOU came to the end of 1000m in 1:8.9 and 38.2. OUTSIDER worked in from the 600m in 39.2.

KOOL CONNECTION ran 1000m in 1:7.8 and home in 39. MIME returned 1:8.3 for 1000m, the 600m in 39.2.

MEGAPOWER was timed from the 600m in 39.1. SIMPLY OPTIMISTIC followed in 37.6.

IMPERIOUS and EAGER BEAVER cut out 600m in 42.5. AMAZING LADY was timed from the 600m in 41.4.
