Der­ryn’s on song for his next as­sign­ment

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - WAR­REN HUNTLY

DER­RYN has been kept on the fresh side since his last start in Syd­ney and he looked bright and fit com­plet­ing a short sharp work­out last Thurs­day morn­ing.

The son of Hinch­in­brook, pre­pared by the Hayes and Dabernig part­ner­ship, quick­ened nicely at end of his hit out to clock 54.15 for 800m and 24.21 for his fi­nal 400m.

He is likely to head to next Sat­ur­day’s fea­ture meet­ing at Sandown and is ready run well. The Mike Moroney-trained

POTEMKIN is rac­ing in great form and hold­ing his con­di­tion well. He was kept up to the mark gal­lop­ing over 1400m last Thurs­day and pulled well af­ter cov­er­ing the jour­ney in 1.39.86 his last 400m in 25.77.

Con­nec­tions have a few op­tions for him in the next week or so and he is sure to prove hard to run down once again.

DODGE CITY, also pre­pared by Moroney, found the 1400m far too short when re­sum­ing at Geelong re­cently but he has come through that race well and worked solidly last Thurs­day morn­ing in prepa­ra­tion for his next as­sign­ment.

Although he still has more im­prove­ment to come he pulled up well af­ter Thurs­day morn­ing’s hit out, clock­ing 1.22.08 for 1200m, 24.73 for his clos­ing 400m and is ca­pa­ble of im­prov­ing dra­mat­i­cally when he steps up in dis­tance for his sec­ond-up the near fu­ture.

An­other Moroney-trained run­ner in UBER COUGAR has been pro­gress­ing well in re­cent weeks and will also be suited when she steps up dis­tance be­yond the 1411m of her re­cent sec­ond-up run.

The four-year- old daugh­ter of Shock­ing had plenty up her sleeve gal­lop­ing solo over 400m last Thurs­day, cov­er­ing the trip in 1.40.26 and her last

26.11. Although her maiden vic­tory in New Zealand came over 1200m she is shap­ing as a stay­ing type now that she is more ma­ture and will be lin­ing up in more suit­able races from here on in the prepa­ra­tion.

SANGLIER was scratched from Maribyrnong Plate at Flem­ing­ton last Sat­ur­day and it could prove worth­while to fol­low the two-year- old son of Al­brecht when James Cum­mings set­tles on a suit­able al­ter­na­tive event.

He wasn’t out to run fast time last Tues­day morn­ing and cruised through his 800m work­out to cover the trip in 57.97 his fi­nal 400m 26.03.

At his only start to date he per­formed cred­itably down the Flem­ing­ton straight over 1000m and should be suited step­ping up slightly in dis­tance at his next start.
