Track Work – Thursday, 13th February 2014

Lady Cumquat completed her preparation for Ellerslie in fine style at Cambridge today

Working on the plough, Lady Cumquat (Hills) left 1200m behind in 1:19.1, the last 600m in 38.7.   She has been returning encouraging work in recent weeks and looks a winning chance on Saturday.

Avondale Guineas candidate, Sacred Park, worked in nicely from the 1000m in 1:7, the 600m in 39.    Silent Achiever (Hills) who begins a fresh campaign at Ellerslie, was given an easy task over 1200m in 1:28, the 600 in 42.1.   She is heavily weighted but will receive some weight relief through apprentice Michael Dee.

Last start winner Maygrove (Jago) was in good form when running 600m in 39.3.  Delargo’s Secret (Norvall) ran the last 600m of work in 42. 

Full Count (Hills) looked at peak fitness for Ellerslie when completing 1200m in 1:22 and 39.6.   More than Sacred (Smith) cut out 1000m in 1:10 and 39.2.   Sacred Win (Ormsby) followed with 600m in 39.6.    Highland Park (Jago) and Constellation (Satherley) were paired over 600m in 38.8.  The Tidy Express (Macfarlane) was clocked from the 600m in 41:4.

Diademe (Legg) reeled off 600m in 39.   Vinnie Eagle (Donoghue) and Kelly O’Reilly (Smith) finished on terms after 800m in 52.2.    Enjay (Norvall) strode 1200m in 1:22.7 and 41.6.   And Royal Toast (Macfarlane) was let off with 1000m in 1.14.6 and 44.3.
