Track Work 9 June 2016

CRAFTYEVA and ELUSIVE GOLD look strong Te Rapa prospects after returning nice final work at Cambridge this morning.

Galloping on the inside of a dead No 3 grass CRAFTYEVA and ELUSIVE GOLD left 1000m behind in 1;7, sprinting the final 600m in 37.7. Last start winner MANDALAY was in impressive form when working with stable mate IT’S BIANCA dashing the final 600m of work in 36.7.

MONGOLIAN EMPIRE, who needs three scratchings to run in the Allied Security 1200 over 1200m at Te Rapa, travelled sweetly alongside SCAMP from the 1200m run in 1;23.4 coming home in 37.8. Both are strong chances this weekend.

BLUE WAGON and BOWIE were in good form over 1000m clocked in 1;7.3 and 37.9. MAUI MISS looked fit for Te Rapa when timed from the 600m in 38.1.

GESEMI and INASTRIDE matched strides from the 1200m in 1;22.1 and home in 38. ROC DE BANK should maintain his good recent form this weekend after an impressive 1200m with SUPERARE run in 1;17 the final 600m in 37.1 .

ENJOY THE RIDE worked in from the 600m in a solid 36.7. NEALA was timed from the 600m in 38.

Working on the sand HONKIETONK TIGER and SINGLE SHOT were given an easy task over 1200m finishing off in 43.2.
