Mistress and Star look ready to fire next start
GAI Waterhouse and Adrian Bott paired up OUR CROWN MISTRESS INVINCIBLE STAR at Moonee Valley last Monday and they kept close company working steadily over 1200m.
Both horses appeared to have plenty in reserve and pulled up well after covering the journey 1.31.27 their final 400m in 26.13.
The form around Our Crown Mistress’s last start victory has stood up well and she is in great order to head to Geelong tomorrow.
Flemington-trained twoyear- olds were afforded the opportunity to trial down straight course last Thursday with the Tony McEvoy-trained SUNLIGHT being the standout performer.
The daughter of Zoustar recorded the quickest time of the three straight heats stopping clock in 46.38 for the 800m trip finishing ahead of
SANGLIER and SCOTTISH ROGUE who also trialled nicely.
Sunlight was impressive winning a recent Cranbourne barrier trial and is sure to be leading contender in Saturday’s Maribyrnong Trial Stakes.
SHAUQUIN looked sharp in a jumpout on steeple grass last Thursday and the Danny
O’Brien-trained galloper is in good order to resume at Geelong tomorrow.
He finished alongside SHE’S POPULAR, who is close to making her debut for the Hayes and Dabernig training partnership, and recorded 48.64 for the distance of about 800m.
Shauquin is a previous firstup winner and looks to have come to hand nicely for his spring campaign.
The Mike Moroney-trained RUE DE RENNES has trained on well since her debut performance over 1200m and the three-year- old daughter of Cape Blanco heads to Geelong tomorrow for her next run.
Last Thursday she galloped solo over 1400m clocking 1.38.04 for the distance and 25.92 for her closing 400m.
She is sure to appreciate stepping up 1755m at Geelong and even further as she progresses through her first racing preparation.
SNEAKERS was narrowly denied a victory at her most recent run and the Nigel Blackiston-trained mare has come through that in great shape.
She was kept up to the mark covering 800m in 55.87 last Tuesday, cruising through the concluding stages to run her last 400m in 26.19.
Connections have a few options for her the next week or so and she should prove hard to beat when they settle on the most suitable race.
