Track Work 29 November 2018

LOVE AFFAIR gave notice she will bounce back to winning form this weekend when working on a slow No1 grass.

Sent 1400m LOVE AFFAIR travelled well alongside LIZZIE L’AMOUR completing the last 1200m in 1;22.8, sprinting the final 600m in 38.5. She has the luxury weight of 53kg in Saturday’s G3 Eagle Technology Stakes over 1600m and providing the track conditions don’t deteriorate worse than slow, looks extremely hard to roll.

Last start winner MERLINI, another top prospect for Ellerslie, wasn’t after time when cruising in from the 600m in 42.7.

PINK GRAFFITI worked in from the 600m in 40.8. POPPY STAR and SKAABOOM came to the end of 1000m in 1:8.3, the last 600m in 41.6.

WALKIN’ BY was clocked from the 600m in 41. HIGHLAD travelled nicely from the 1400m in 1:40.1, the 600m in 40.7. FANCY MORE ran the last 600m of work in 39.3.

GIANT GEM returned 56 for 800m. Galloping on the No4 grass, FARM BOY who ran a nice third fresh up, was given a comfortable 1000m run in 1:7 finishing off in 40.

FACTOR ME IN looked fit for Ellerslie when not asked for time over 800m, the last 600m in 42.8.

BELLA GIOIA strode in from the 600m in 45.8. KOOL CONNECTION cut out 1000m in 1:11 and 40.6.

RITANI was timed from the 600m in 45.3. PITCH and SWITCH returned 44.1. LITE MY CIGAR followed with 600m in 44.5.
