Lees pair on song ahead of Cameron

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - ALAN GOLLOGLY

PRIZED ICON and SENSE OF OC­CA­SION will carry en­tries in Fri­day’s Group 3 $160,000 Cameron Hand­i­cap (1500m) at the New­cas­tle Cup meet­ing and Kris Leestrained duo joined forces on the course proper (soft 5, 20m out) on Satur­day morn­ing.

Both horses were un­der re­straint when they clocked 1.12.05 for 1000m com­ing up the fi­nal 600m in a com­fort­able 38.00 with Prized Icon hav­ing a half-length ad­van­tage at the post.

Prized Icon was a cred­itable last start fifth in the Group 2 Chelms­ford Stakes while Sense Oc­ca­sion will be first-up af­ter suf­fer­ing a ten­don in­jury in Novem­ber last year.

Last year’s Cameron win­ner GOT UNDERS has been out of form but he looked sharp when cruis­ing over 800m in 53.75 (38.10).

The Group 3 $160,000 Spring Stakes (1600m) for three-yearolds is the likely target for im­pres­sive last start track win­ner SUNREEL.

The daugh­ter of Dun­deel hasn’t raced since Au­gust 15 but was kept tick­ing over with a quiet 1000m trial at Gos­ford nine days ago.

Sunreel also worked over

1000m in a leisurely 1.12.90 (39.90).

MISS FABULASS en­hanced her chances for Satur­day’s Group 2 $200,000 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rand­wick by pro­duc­ing a su­perb gal­lop.

Af­ter a steady can­ter she cov­ered 800m in 52.05 with a hard held last 600m in 37.00 and pow­ered through the line with gusto.

If cir­cum­stances al­low, Miss Fabulass will be rid­den a tad qui­eter in the early stages of the Tea Rose.

Promis­ing filly REGINAE

has trained on in the de­sired man­ner since win­ning at Rand­wick last start.

She worked anti clock­wise over 800m in an easy 53.90 (38.00) and is likely to ap­pear next in the Thou­sand Guineas Pre­lude (1400m) at Caulfield on Septem­ber 22. CLEARLY IN­NO­CENT was one of the first to use the course proper and the Group 1 win­ning seven-year- old wasn’t asked to do much clock­ing in at 54.95/39.70 for 800m.

I have never seen him bet­ter shape and he may head to Flem­ing­ton for a dash down the straight in early Novem­ber.

LE ROMAIN en­dured a tough run in the Group 2 Tramway on Septem­ber 1 but he has bounced back quickly and had a glow in his coat when glid­ing over 1000m in 1.13.85 (41.50).

Ever­est run­ner IN HER TIME did strong pace­work over 1200m in prepa­ra­tion for her ex­hi­bi­tion gal­lop be­tween races on Fri­day.

Lightly raced (3sts 2-1- 0) All Too Hard mare WARUNA is gear­ing up for her next first-up and she looked the part strolling over 1000m on pro ride in 1.07.50 (38.40).

Hoofnote: Six­teen tri­als were staged on a rain af­fected Wy­ong sur­face yes­ter­day and a re­port will be in next week’s edi­tion.

Prized Icon is work­ing well ahead of his next as­sign­ment.
