Improved Gem looks towards Spring riches
INVINCIBLE GEM was one of the most improved fillies in NSW this season and she is back in light training with a program of Spring riches awaiting.
The daughter of I Am Invincible graduated from back to back Warwick Farm (67) and Rosehill (76) Benchmark wins scoring in the Group 3 Spring Stakes at Randwick (1600m) before being narrowly beaten on a bog in the Group 1
Guineas (1600m). Horses that finished behind the three year old last campaign include Test The World, Salsonic, Man From Uncle and Comin’ Through so you can see the strength in her form.
On Saturday morning she completed 800m on the pro ride in a comfortable 56.50 (last 600m 41.20) and will probably trial early July.
LAUNCH CODE, an impressive and expected winner ($1.80) at Warwick Farm late last month, has settled into his new home Newcastle.
On Saturday morning he was joined by former NZ galloper SOUND PROPOSTION on the course proper (20 metres/Soft 6) for a 1000m hitout with pair recording 1.09.90 (39.50).
As the time suggests the had plenty to offer and they will offer us some dollars when produced in the coming weeks.
HE’S OUR TOY BOY hasn’t fired a shot in two runs from a spell but with the prospect of soft tracks he’ll soon improve.
He looked part when strolling over 800m in 53.80 (37.90).
UNBRIDLED POWER and TUSCADERO joined forces over 1000m in 1.08.30 (38.40) with both under a firm grip.
The former is ready to fire after appearing a tad soft recently while Tuscadero (ex Waller) has been placed numerous times in middle distance Maidens.
PLAISIR has trained on well since his first up Newcastle win and the good looking son of Choisir was unextended when clocking 800m in 54.05 (38.50).
NATIONALITY and ROAD TO HEAVEN have gained benefit from their recent trial and the duo were in the zone over 600m in a hard held 37.95.
CHALMERS ran a cracking fourth on debut at Muswellbrook over an unsuitable 1000m and he was joined by LET’S GET NAUTI GAL when they clocked 54.75 (38.80) for the 800m.
Both should be winning sooner than later. SURFIN’ SAFARI found the 1580m too far last start but a few weeks freshen has the baldy faced chestnut looking so sharp.
He glided over 600m in 37.50 with ease.
Worth an each way ticket over 1200/1300m especially if track rain affected.
OLYMPIC ACADEMY earns a cheque or two every preparation and his winter campaign will be no different.
The six-year-old is one happy horse and, gee, he hit the line with zest at the end of 1000m in 1.07.50 (37.60).
Invincible Gem is working well ahead of her return to the track
