Track Work 1 October 2020

NOMOATHAJ, who will attempt a hat trick of wins at the Ellerslie meeting this Sunday, galloped well today.

Working on a slow No.4 grass NOMOATHAJ hit the line full of running, after completing 1000m in 1:5.7, sprinting the last 600m in 38.2.  She has shown form on all types of ground, and although she has drawn an outside alley, she should be competitive.

SUFFUSED and AEGON were paired over 1000m in 1:8.8, running the final 600m in 39.1. They are race rivals in Saturday’s Dundeel at Arrowfield Hawke’s Bay Guineas. Both are in excellent order but SUFFUSED has the advantage of an inside barrier draw, so is slightly favoured.

LUBAYA was another to gallop well from the 1000m in 1:8.4, finishing off in 38.9.  She has been returning nice work recently and looks a winning chance at Hastings.

Race rival RED BEACH came to the end of 1000m in an easy 1.12, the final 600m in 41.

TUPPENCE, who has had two trials to prepare for Hastings, was not after time over 1000m run in 1:13.4 and 43.1.  She showed she had ability last campaign and looks a nice each way chance.

LOTHBROK, entered for the maiden steeplechase at Ellerslie on Sunday, was sent one round, completing the last 1200m in 1.26, the 600 in 40.

GALLARDO ran 1000m in 1:7.8, home in 38.9.

DARCEE QUE was clocked 600m in 41.4.  MONLULA was kept under a nice hold from the 1000m in 1.11.3, coming home in 40.6.

ENDLESS DRAMA returned 1:9.3 and 39.6 for 1000m.
