Track Work 5 September 2019

MONGOLIAN MARSHAL and SMART AS YOU THINK, stable mates and Ellerslie race rivals, completed final work in style this morning.

Galloping on a slow ground 5m out on the No. 2 grass, MONGOLIAN MARSHAL and SMART AS YOU THINK hit the finish of 1000m together, running 1:4.5, sprinting in from the 600m in 37.4.
They will take part in the small, but talented, Celebrating Melody Belle 1400m.

Cambridge trained horses make up half the field and MONGOLIAN MARSHAL is my preference.

HARBOURSIDE looked in good order when completing 800m in 53.3. ZINZAN kept up a good clip from the 800m, clocked in 51.3, the 600m in 38.1.

ELLE EYE ARE came to the end of 1000m in 54.3, finishing the last 600m in 40.2.

A DUNDEEL and a SHOCKING from the Andrew Campbell stable, sprinted 600m in a smart 37.4.

On the No4 grass RONDINELLA was kept under a firm hold by raceday jockey Vinnie Colgan over 1000m in 1:11.2, home in 41. She will make her presence felt fresh up in Saturday’s Celebrating Melody Belle 1400m.

CHECKERS and SHE’S A LADY, who will both be hard to beat at Wanganui this weekend, left 1000m behind in an easy 1:12.4, home in 41.5.

SAINT EMILION strode 1200m in 1:24.5, coming in from the 600m in 40.3. CHARM SPIRIT|RUBY LASS and COMPLACENT|GRANITA were timed over 400m in 26.7.

On The sand RISING RANSOM did his weekend chances no harm when working nicely over 800m in 54. ADELAIDE|LONG LASHES and DEEP BEAUTY were timed from the 600m in 41.4.

SORRENTINA cut out 800m in 53.8.
