Track Work 7 March 2019

Sistema Stakes candidates ARETHA and ENJOY THE SHOW produced impressive final work at Cambridge this morning.

Galloping on the plough, the stablemates for the Two year old feature at Ellerslie completed their final 600 in 36.7. Both appear strong chances, with ARETHA being slightly the better prospect.

RONDINELLA, who was responsible for Tuesday’s track work highlight, was given a comfortable 1400, quickening over the final 600 in 42. She looks in first class order for Saturday’s Bonecrusher New Zealand Stakes.

Race rivals SAINT EMILION and VIN DE DANCE enhanced their chances with nice work from the 1200, with stablemate LORD ARTHUR, run in 1:21.07, sprinting the 600 in 37.5.

WESTERN GIRL and IGNORED were also in good form when coming in from the 600 in 38.4. Any rain will enhance WESTERN GIRL’S prospects.

TIGHTLIGN completed a comfortable 1000 in 1:09.3 and 41.7. Stablemate and Ellerslie race rival SAVAPAK followed with similar work.

GUNDOWN was sent 1600 in 1:52, completing the final section in 39.2.

POWER O’HATA, who has been working well over recent weeks, was kept under a strong hold from the 600 in 45.4. She is an unlikely starter this weekend after drawing a wide barrier.

MAGNUM ran 600 in 42.1. JIMMY ROCKET was sent 1600 in 1:52.8 and 42.6.

IN FASHION strode 1000 in 1:10.9, the 600 in 40.7. NICOLETTA and HINERANGI matched strides from the 1200 in 1:20.2 and home in 38.

PITCH AND SWITCH ran 600 in 42.9. IMPERIOUS left 600 behind in 43. IT’S DOABLE followed in 43.3.

SPRING DELIGHT, CLEMENTINA and RUBIRA were clocked over 1200 in 1:23.3, finishing off in 37.5.

CONCERT HALL galloped well from the 1200 in 1:22.1 and 37.6. ZACADA maintained a solid clip from the 1400 in 1:30.2, coming home in 36.9. He is about to embark on an Australian Campaign.

QUEEN OF DIAMONDS and ORATIA were on terms throughout 1200 in 1:21, the concluding 600 in 38.4.

QIJI EXPRESS and NORDIC did well together from the 1000 in 1:04 and 37. HANGER strode easily from the 1000 in 1:10 and 41.4.

PODRAVINA was clocked from the 600 in 38.3. PRETTY TO SEA came in from the 600 in 43.4. LADYNADEL did well over 1000 in 1:06, with the 600 in 37.5.

Best Bet: Race 10 | Barfoot & Thompson 2100 at Ellerslie on Saturday | LORD ARTHUR.
