Amended Track Work 3 September 2019

RONDINELLA was in outstanding form when galloping on the No. 1 grass this morning.

Working on a slow ground RONDINELLA was full of running at the completion of 1200m, run in a smart 1:16.3, sprinting the last 600m in 36.5.

She pleased her co-trainer Roger James, who commented after the gallop her work today was her best this time in. She will race fresh up at Ellerslie over 1400m this weekend, and although the distance and the expected heavy track is far from her preference, she should still be most competitive.

All going well she will embark on a Melbourne campaign, with her first run expected to be in a mare’s race at Mooney Valley in three weeks, with her main goal being the Group I WS Cox Plate in late October.

Working on the inside of a slow No. 2 grass, LILY THE PINK had the better of ELLE EYE ARE at the end of 1200m in 1:16.9, dashing the final 600m in 35.9.

MONGOLIAN MARSHAL shaded SMART AS YOU THINK when completing 1200m in 1.17, the final 600m in 36.4. JOJO ROXX impressed over 1000m, clocked in 1:2.3, finishing off in 36.1.

STROLLING VAGABOND was another in good form, working in from the 1200m in 1:16.6 and 35.9.

KAIPAKI ROAD, who ran an eye-catching debut race, came to the end of 1000m in a well held 1:9.1, home in 40. INITIATIVE was timed the last 600m of work in 38.2.

BOBBY DAZZLER travelled sweetly from the 1000m, run in 1:7.4 and 39.4. SEVENTH UP came in from the 600m in 37.1.

On the No. 4 grass CHECKERS looked in good order for Saturday’s HS Dyke Wanganui Guineas when returning excellent work alongside equally impressive stable mate SHE’S A LADY, (who is also due to race at Wanganui) over 1000m in 1:6.3, the concluding 600m in 38.
