The daugh­ter of Ilovethisc­ity was only out for a steady gal­lop over 800m in 56.50 ( last 600m 41.20) on Satur­day morn­ing and looked su­perb order.

Trainer Ben Smith will have a bar­rier trial planned in the next week or two and then it will be all Black Type rac­ing from Au­gust to Novem­ber.

Sta­ble­mate, and also Group 1 The Galaxy win­ner, IN HER TIME is back in train­ing but only do­ing pace­work as her grand fi­nal is The Ever­est on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 13.

Thrice Group 1 win­ner LE RO­MAIN worked on the course proper (14m out) and was un­der re­straint do­ing a cruisy 800m in 56.00 (39.40).

Ten min­utes ear­lier, ex­cit­ing soon to be three-year- old GRAFF was also on the main track where he clocked 55.80 (38.70). Good horse.

An in­di­ca­tion that MISS FABULASS may be head­ing to Mel­bourne in Oc­to­ber was when she worked the re­verse way in 57.00 (42.20).

Af­ter be­ing des­per­ately un­lucky a maiden on de­but at Rose­hill in late Fe­bru­ary, the daugh­ter of Frankel was dis­patched to the pad­dock with a low grade virus.

SMART MELODY has re­turned from her two week R and R at El­la­long Farm and she glided around the sand track in 59.20 (44.60).

The daugh­ter of Smart Mis­sile has won her only two starts at New­cas­tle and Can­ter­bury by a com­bined 10-plus lengths. GUARD OF HON­OUR looked as healthy as ever as he glided around the sand in 58.50 (43.00) with Aaron Bul­lock in the sad­dle.

A Listed/Group 3 sprint down the Flem­ing­ton straight is un­der con­sid­er­a­tion dur­ing Cup week. LADY OF SHALOTT, who bolted up on de­but at Muswell­brook in April be­fore run­ning third the Listed Wood­lands at Scone a few weeks later, is gear­ing up for late Au­gust re­turn to com­pe­ti­tion.

The daugh­ter of Camelot – Lady Of Shalott was a char­ac­ter in the play – has ma­tured into a fine spec­i­men and will un­doubt­edly grad­u­ate to city level.

The ch­est­nut will be aim­ing for the hat-trick in Satur­day’s Bench­mark 90 (2000m) at Rose­hill. ALIFEROUS, a daugh­ter of the re­cently de­ceased Hinch­in­brook, has trained on smoothly since her de­but win and may also be headed to Rose­hill.

She looked the part gal­lop­ing over 1000m in a hard held 1.08.50 (39.00).
