GEE­LONG (WED)

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - — Greg Splet­ter

SIA (R4 No. 2) may have been dis­ap­point­ing for favourite back­ers when she went down first-up as a long odds-on favourite but we can square the ledger by backing up with her at Gee­long to­mor­row. She did make a ton of ground in the run home af­ter miss­ing the kick, and pre­vi­ous be­fore the break at Flemington was ex­cel­lent when beaten just a length down the straight be­hind Royal Phoenix. PURE EMO­TION (R5 No. 4) goes very well fresh and back to a class one to­mor­row can re­turn to rac­ing with a win. She was beaten in a de­vel­oped print last prep when re­sum­ing, and the first-up run of her pre­vi­ous cam­paign re­sulted great ef­fort be­hind the smart filly Tulip. Looks well weighted for this grade and will go close. MIALIGN (R7 No. 6) caught the eye with a good run at Cran­bourne when mak­ing her Aus­tralian de­but and with that run un­der her belt can break through here. Her form across the ditch was en­cour­ag­ing, she proved at her first out­ing for Robert Smer­don that is well up to this grade.
