Track Work 9 May 2019

TOMELILLA and KANDARI looked fit for their Rotorua assignments when producing nice lead up work on the plough this morning.

TOMELILLA shaded KANDARI at the completion of 1200, the last 1000 in 1:05 and the final 600 in 38.1. TOMELILLA, who is a course and distance winner at Arawa Park, looks close to peak fitness and should be hard to beat, especially if the track deteriorates.

Last start winner KANDARI should also prove competitive. New Plymouth bound RIPPIN impressed alongside stablemates, THE HEIRESS and ARTISTE from the 1000 in 1:04.8, the last 600 in 37.7.

ZACADA enhanced his Campbell Infrastructure Rotorua Cup chances when maintaining a solid gallop from the 1600 in 1:40.4, finishing off in 37. Race rival HIGHLAD was another to catch the eye when cruising 1400 with NORDIC in 1:40.8, the final 600 in 40.3.

DAM RELIABLE produced his consistent good work when clocked from the 1000 in 1:03.2, dashing the 600 in 35.8.

BOBBY DEE was given a comfortable 600 in 39. RHAEGAR, BIRDSONG and DEEP WATER were on terms from the 1000, being clocked from the 600 in 41.9.

POWER O’HATA and PEACEFUL came in nicely from the 1200 in 1:24 and 39. CHARLESTON GIRL and THOMAS AQUINAS matched strides from the 1000 in 1:06.9 and 39.4.

SOCIALLY EXCITED looked fit for New Plymouth when working in from the 1000 in 1:07.8 and home in 38.6. LADYNADEL reeled off 1200 in 1:24.1, the 600 in 38.4.

POP STAR PRINCESS worked quietly prior to sprinting up the straight. Working on the sand, MASU ran 1200 at 3/4 pace, timed from the 600 in 45.

RED SENNA was clocked over 600 in 43. HANGER worked in nicely from the 1200 in 1:16.8 and 37.6.

HYPNOS was sent 1400 in 1:36.2, the concluding 600 in 38. ST ANDRE was clocked over 600 in 41. DEEP BEAUTY and PRIVATE LINE came to the end of 1000 in 1:06.8, the 600 in 38.5.
