Mistress and Star look ready to fire next start

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - WAR­REN HUNTLY

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.
