Track Work – Tuesday, 23rd October

Wellington Guineas candidate Wowowow was in outstanding form in training at Cambridge today.

Working on the outside of a dead No.1 grass Wowowow, with raceday rider Jason Waddell aboard, kept up a strong gallop from the 1200m with The Darling One (Kelvin) in 1:15.3, the 1000m in 1:1.9, the last 600m in 36. Wowowow has thrived since his maiden win at Te Aroha.

Silent Achiever (Dalley) and Misstrum (Norvall) were paired over 1200m in 1:21.9, finishing off in 37.7. Both were travelling sweetly throughout. Ruud Awakening (Waddell), who won impressively on debut at Avondale, worked nicely alongside Miss Barbarella (McNab) over 800m, the concluding 600m in 38.4. Ruud Awakening looks fit for Saturday’s Wellesley Stakes. Race rival Dancer’s Tale (Orting) sprinted 600m in 39.2.

Neo (Orting) and Twilight Grenita (Hutton), both entrants for the Wellington Guineas, left 1000m behind in 1:4.8, dashing the last 600m in 36.8. Pouri Chimes (Ormsby), who has been working well in recent weeks, came to the end of 1000m in 1:6.7, the concluding 600m in 37.7.

Working on the No.2 grass, with the markers out 15 metres, Open ‘N’ Shut (Hughes) and Master Power (Gatu) impressed over 600m in a smart 35.8. Savour the Moment (Harris) and Are You Devious (Shaw) completed 1200m in 1:19.4, the last 600m in 38.9. Savour the Moment races at Ellerslie this weekend and Are You Devious travels to Trentham.

Best Command (medium weight) was timed from the 600m in 36.9. Big Iron (Carter) kept up a solid clip from the 1000m in 1:2.7 and 37.4 for the 600m. Chill Bill (Orting) strode comfortably from the 1000m in 1:9.7 and 39.6. Anna Marea (Carter) was not extended when completing 1200m in 1:20.2, the last 600m in 41.6.

Prince Kaapstad (Waddell) and Due North (Kelvin) ran the last 600m of their work in 38.6. Super Efficient (Collett) returned 1:7.7 for 1000m, coming home in 37.7 and Thee Old Sheila (McNab) completed an easy 600m in 36.6.

Working on a good sand Passalente (German) was sent 1000m in 1:9, the last 600m in 40.7. Heart of Darkness (Katrina) was timed over the last 600m of work in 41.7 and High Society (Roustoby) and Genis (Hutton) left 600m behind in 41.
