Heatherly fly­ing ahead of her re­turn

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork -

HEATHERLY is gear­ing up for an­other Spring Car­ni­val prepa­ra­tion and the daugh­ter of Lonhro, pre­pared by Mathew Eller­ton Si­mon Zahra, showed her cus­tom­ary speed eas­ily win­ning the quick­est of last Fri­day’s jumpouts.

In foggy con­di­tions she stopped the clock in 47.06 for the trip of ap­prox­i­mately 800m with Group 1 win­ner REDKIRK WAR­RIOR about four lengths astern and HARTNELL, was given fairly easy time, fin­ish­ing fur­ther back.

There is sure to be plenty of win­ning form com­ing out this heat and Heatherly looks set for an­other suc­cess­ful cam­paign.

A THOU­SAND DE­GREES is close to mak­ing his de­but and the Tony McEvoy-trained son of Nic­coni was re­spon­si­ble for an en­cour­ag­ing per­for­mance at last Fri­day’s jumpouts.

The over­all time for the heat of 49.84 was just out­side av­er­age for the morn­ing but A Thou­sand De­grees looked to have plenty in re­serve win­ning the heat by about half a length from NIMINYPIMINY, pre­pared by Rus­sell and Scott Cameron.

A Thou­sand De­grees is sure to ac­quit him­self well,when he steps out un­der race con­di­tions for the first time while Niminypiminy

ROOMOOZ, also pre­pared by McEvoy, was an­other to pro­duce an eye catch­ing per­for­mance at last Fri­day’s jumpouts.

After sit­ting just off a mod­est speed in the early stages she quick­ened im­pres­sively over the fi­nal 200m to record 49.89 for dis­tance of about 800m and win the heat by four or five lengths from JUS­TICE GLORY and SEN­TRY.

Roomooz hasn’t raced since fin­ish­ing mid­field be­hind Catchy in the Blue Di­a­mond and looks ca­pa­ble of mea­sur­ing up to some elite races in the weeks ahead.

BAT­TLE ZONE has come through his lat­est out­ing over 2200m at Gee­long in good shape and is close to peak fit­ness fol­low­ing that run.

He was kept up the mark with a solid work­out over 1400m on Thurs­day morn­ing and pulled up well after clock­ing 1.38.96 for the trip and 25.71 for his fi­nal 400m.

With re­cent rac­ing un­der his belt he looks well placed over 2400m at Gee­long to­mor­row.

The James Cummings-trained KAPUZINER worked home solidly over 1300m on the syn­thetic track at Gee­long last time out and the three year old son of Re­set has de­rived a good deal of im­prove­ment from the first up run and looked bright and for cov­er­ing 1400m in 1.41.22 his last 400m in 26.29 on Tuesday morn­ing.

He should rel­ish the step up to 1600m on the syn­thetic track at Pak­en­ham today and should grad­u­ate from maiden com­pany in the near fu­ture.
