Civics Rock and Snow Excuse did their weekend prospects no harm when galloping on a heavy No.3 Grass at Cambridge this morning

Ellerslie candidates Civics Rock (Sarah) and Snow Excuse (Cropp) travelled sweetly together over 1000m, sprinting the final 600m in 37.7.   Both look strong chances this weekend.     

Elusive Gold (Holmquist), who begins a fresh campaign on Saturday at Ellerslie worked well alongside stablemate Atlante (Waddell) over 1000m, the last 600m in 37.9.   Oui (Thornton) was sent 1000m in a comfortable 1.11, quickening from the 600m in 39.9.  Chapinta (Thornton), who has hit peak form, was untested when completing the final 600m of work in 42.1.   Sacred Park (Donoghue) was in good form when completing 600m in 42.2.   Sonoza (Foote) ran an easy 600m in 43.1.   

Old Drumble (Macfarlane) left 1200m behind in 1:22.7, finishing off in 38.9.   Cornelius (Foote) was given an easy task over 600m in 45.4.   Zonza (Dalley) worked well over 1200m, completing the final 600m in 39.1.

Working on the sand, Open ‘N’ Shut (Hughes) and Rebound (Gatu) worked well over 800m in 50.   Red Caviar (Tiko) ran 600m in 39.6.   Four of Diamonds (Tiko) followed in 41.7.  Black Hennessy (Hughes) worked in from the 600m in 38.
