Track Work 11 May 2017

The Baker/ Forsman stable appear to have a stranglehold on Saturday’s Group 3 LSCL Rotorua Stakes for Fillies and Mares after their three runners, LOVE AFFAIR, HONEY RIDER and BONNIEGIRL, completed excellent work at Cambridge this morning.

Galloping on the outside of a slow No 4 grass LOVE AFFAIR and HONEY RIDER travelled nicely from the 1000m in 1:7.1, sprinting the last 600m in 37.6.

BONNIEGIRL, who returned outstanding work on Tuesday, was given a comfortable 1000m run in 1:11.1, the final section in 40.2. LOVE AFFAIR looks the strongest winning chance provided the track remains in reasonable condition.

PACORUS looked in peak form for Saturday’s Rotorua Cup when working in comfortably from the 1000m in 1:10 finishing off in 40.1.

Race rivals MAYGROVE, who has won his only two starts on the course, and SHOW THE WORLD kept up a solid pace over 1400m, completing the last 1000m in 1:7.7 and home in 37.7.

Working on the No 2 grass, WOODEN EDGE and ROC DE BANK cut out 1000m in 1:6.3, coming home in 37.

MONARCH CHIMES was timed from the 600m in 40.1. Unbeaten stable mates DEALS IN HEELS and GRAND RIO worked well together from the 1000m in 1:6.9 and 37.4. Bothe look strong winning chances again this weekend.

BLUE WAGON came in from the 1000m in 1:8 and home in 38. On the sand, HINERANGI was sent 1000m in 1:7.8, sprinting the 600m in 39.

NAILED IT returned 1.9 and 39.2. O’CAROL was clocked from the 600m in 38.3 and SMILING MORE followed in 38.2.
