The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - — Greg Splet­ter

It’s an in­cred­i­ble meet­ing at Morn­ing­ton for a mid­weeker and HEAR THE CHANT (R8 No. 4) is just one of sev­eral Satur­day class run­ners lin­ing up. She went like the clap­pers first-up and did an amaz­ing job not to ca­pit­u­late in the straight. In the end it took a handy one in Frag­o­nard to run her down, and back to the 1000m here from the good draw she can go one bet­ter.

AN­DREA MONTEGNA (R3 No. 2) hasn’t done much wrong since com­ing over from France with two vic­to­ries from three Aus­tralian starts for the D Weir team and can make it three four. He han­dled the very soft track at Hill­side com­fort­ably in his lat­est win step­ping to 1800m and he is bred to get a lot fur­ther so step up in dis­tance won’t stop him. THINK BABE (R9 No. 1) showed abil­ity against bet­ter op­po­si­tion when last in work and gives us a good out if we need one the last. He won two in row at the provin­cials prep be­fore push­ing Sword Of Light to a half length at Caulfield and that is good enough for me.
