Harmonize did her weekend prospects no harm when working at Cambridge today

Fog made the timing of gallops most difficult.

Galloping on the plough, Harmonize (Macfarlane) strode in comfortably from the 1400m, quickening from the 600m in 38.7.  She races at Te Rapa this weekend and should run a bold race for in form trainer Roger James.

Kool Gal (Waters) looked fit for her Te Rapa engagement when covering 600m in 38.9.  All’s Fair (Roustoby) came to the end of 600m in 39.3.  Rock Diva (Smith), a favoured runner for Saturday’s New Zealand Oaks at Trentham, could not be timed but appeared to be travelling sweetly throughout 1200m.  She should acquit herself well in the Group 1 feature.

Miss Foxwood (Hills) was sent 1000m at three quarter pace, coming home from the 600m in 40.2.  Moretti (Holly) followed with similar work.  Billy’o (Smith) and Allez Eagle (Donoghue) were paired over 800m in 52.  Little Dreamer (Mirribelli) ran an easy 1000m in 1:10.  Ernie (Roustoby) worked over 1200m, the last 600m in 39.3.  Katie’s Cove (Hills) completed 1000m in 1:12.

Zonza (Macfarlane) left 1400m behind in 1:40.  Popeye Braggins (Ormsby) worked in nicely from the 1000m.  Readywhenuare (Norvall) ran 1200m at three-quarter pace.
