Tuesday 9th June 2020
Course Proper. Markers out 19m. Track Slow.
Time honours of the morning went to London Express who galloped in company with Beckidboo over 1000m, the last 600m in 36.9. London Express continues to please.
Only marginally slower was Tellyawhat who worked solo over the same distance, the last 600m in 37.2.
Quality winter galloper, Rosewood, continued its preparation for a return to the racetrack by running 1200m solo, the last 600 in 39.9. She has been working strongly for some time now, and will be primed and ready to go.
Trainer, John Wheeler, brought a fairly large contingent to the track. They all worked slowly from the gap galloping 1000m, with the 600m time in brackets; Rock Ya Sox and Cleaver (38.9), Irish Flame and Spirit of Atlante (38.9), Zeefa Zed and Beaudzwell (39.1), Nogolf Etikit and Bubble Gum (39.4), Irish Flame and Wine n' Dine (38.6), Wine n' Dine in particular did well to work with the better performed Irish Flame, who was originally to be sent to Australia to race.
Wheeler intends to take a big jumping team to the Waverley Point To Point this Thursday.
Vinabeel worked with stablemates by Atlante and Shining Light, over 1000m, the last 600m in 39.1 seconds. Vinabeel kept up a strong gallop.
The Revell pair, Meila Rei and Ekstrememiss, ran 1200m, the last 600m in 39.1. Although only a one race winner Ekstrememiss is a possible New Zealand Cup contender in Spring.
The well performed Mars Bar continued to work strongly in company with Penelope Cruz. They ran 1000m, the last 600 in 38.4.
One Of The Best had a Battle Paint stablemate for company. They works steadily over 1000m, the last 600m in 40.1.
The final gallops were all solo over 1000m or 1200m, with the last 600m time in brackets.
La Strata (40.0), Total Sass (38.7), Smarty Pants (38.6), Hi I’m Nikita (38.8). In particular Hi I’m Nikita looks bright and ready for a good winter campaign.
