Track Work 24 September 2020

SPRING DELIGHT and PEARLESCENCE, who are race rivals at Ellerslie this weekend, returned nice work together on Thursday morning.

Galloping on the plough, SPRING DELIGHT finished a shade ahead of PEARLESCENCE at the completion of 1000m, sprinting the final 600m in 37.3.

CONCERT HALL, who begins a fresh campaign at Ellerslie, was not pressured when timed from the 1000m in 1:10.2, the 600m in 40.  She looks fit and should race well.

CHEVAL PROMETTEUR, who is at peak fitness for Ellerslie, travelled sweetly from the 600m, clocked in 39.5.  This was a good time as he worked later in the session when the track had been affected by constant rain.

Race rival LONDON BANKER, strode 1400m in 1.40, finishing with 600m in 40.7.

CRAFTY JESS, who has drawn the outside barrier at Ellerslie, had SHOWDEEL for a companion from 1000m, run in 1:7.2, home in 38.3.

SACROSANCT and STYLISH SUGGESTION were timed 600m in 41.7.

LINCOLN KING worked in 600m in 43.8.  ROBUSTO and LORD SIBFORD were sent 1400m in 1:33.8, sprinting the last 600m in 38.  Both look well.

SPLASH OF RED ran 1000m in 1:10.7 and 40.5.  CHEAPERTHANDIVORCE was clocked 600m in 43.

ROCCIA ran 600m in 43.3.  DUBLIN DOLL was given easy work over 600m in 45.6.

POET’S BOY returned 1.10 and 40.1 for 1000m.  RIBZZ cut out the final 600m of 800m in 40, and BUDDY PERFECT did well over 1000m in 1:6.2, home in 38.
