Set­suna im­presses in a Flem­ing­ton jumpout

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - WAR­REN HUNTLY

SET­SUNA has ar­rived safely in Mel­bourne for the Gai Water­house and Adrian Bott sta­ble the daugh­ter of Choisir looked sharp tak­ing her place in fastest jumpout of a qual­ity set of heats con­ducted last Fri­day.

She crossed the line with the Lind­say Park-trained EN­NIS HILL who stopped clock in 47.55 for the dis­tance of about 800m.

Both horses ap­pear to be com­ing to hand well and should be worth keep­ing in mind when the step out the near fu­ture. to catch the eye at last Fri­day’s jumpouts and the daugh­ter of Starspan­gled­ban­ner, pre­pared by Team Corstens, looks set for an­other fruit­ful prepa­ra­tion.

She ap­peared to be trav­el­ling well within her­self as she passed the fin­ish­ing post with the Godol­phin gal­loper SANGLIER in slick time of 47.56 for the ap­prox­i­mate trip of 800m.

There is plenty up up­side to both of these horses and they sure for­ward enough to run well when they re­sume shortly.

Nigel Blackiston used a mid­prepa­ra­tion jumpout with good ef­fect to get FASTBROOK back in the win­ner’s stall at her most re­cent run and he em­ployed sim­i­lar tac­tics last Fri­day lead­ing into her next start at Sale to­mor­row.

She set­tled off the speed and worked home nicely be­hind the well per­formed horses AMOVATIO and ODEON with Amovatio record­ing 48.47 in win­ning the heat.

Blackiston has Fastbrook in out­stand­ing con­di­tion and she is sure to prove hard to beat at Sale.

PO­ETIC DREAM sported blink­ers for his jumpout last Fri­day and the Lind­say Park­trained im­port made a one act af­fair of his heat.

He gained con­trol of the heat soon af­ter leav­ing bar­ri­ers and pro­gres­sively ex­tended his lead right to the fin­ish­ing post to clock 47.82 for the trip of about 800m without be­ing ex­tended at any stage.

David Hayes has in­di­cated he will be tar­geted at some

high grade races dur­ing his up­com­ing cam­paign and he is sure to cre­ate a lot of in­ter­est when he runs first up in the weeks ahead.

POTEMKIN didn’t have the best of luck last time out and his pre­vi­ous per­for­mance when he recorded a dom­i­nant vic­tory at Bal­larat should prove a bet­ter guide when as­sess­ing his chances at Sale to­mor­row.

The Mine Moroney-trained gal­loper was kept up to the mark gal­lop­ing over 1200m last Thurs­day and looked strong and fit af­ter com­plet­ing his work­out in 1.24.06 his fi­nal 400m 25.16.

He is hold­ing his con­di­tion well and ca­pa­ble of bounc­ing back to best form to­mor­row.
