Mar­tini set to shake her ri­vals af­ter jumpout

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - WAR­REN HUNTLY

BELLA MAR­TINI was scratched from last Satur­day’s meet­ing at Moonee Val­ley but the Team Hawkes-trained daugh­ter of Stra­tum looks in great or­der fol­low­ing her re­cent first up run and tuned up for her next as­sign­ment with an im­pres­sive per­for­mance in a jumpout last Fri­day.

She cruised along her heat over about 800m to hold a mar­gin of just over a length from her sta­ble­mate SILENT ROAR at the con­clu­sion of the heat and stop clock in 49.03.

She won Kewney Stakes over 1400m at Flem­ing­ton ear­lier this year and is likely to line up in Satur­day’s Let’s Elope Stakes over the same course and dis­tance this week­end. OUR CROWN MISTRESS, trained by Gai Water­house and Adrian Bott, and SHEEZDASHING, pre­pared by Mathew Eller­ton Si­mon Zahra, were the stand­out per­form­ers at last Fri­day’s jumpout heats with pair cross­ing the line to­gether in the quick­est heat of the morn­ing.

Both horses were asked for a bit of an ef­fort over the con­clud­ing stages of their heat over ap­prox­i­mately 800m which re­sulted in them record­ing 47.26 for their heat.

Both horses have been work­ing in im­pres­sive fash­ion in re­cent weeks and should be for­ward enough to run well when they re­sume for their spring prepa­ra­tions.

Team Corstens gave RUNSON a solid hit out dur­ing last Fri­day’s jumpouts and he looks to be com­ing to hand well lead­ing into his spring cam­paign.

In one of the quick­est heats of the morn­ing he rolled along on speed to hold a mar­gin

about two lengths over the Lind­say Park-trained SOV­ER­EIGN NA­TION as he passed the fin­ish­ing post in the time of 47.65.

Runson has al­ready won a cou­ple of times when pro­duced first up and is sure to give good ac­count of him­self when he re­sumes in the near fu­ture.

BRU­TAL POWER is cop­ing well with his first rac­ing prepa­ra­tion and the Mike Moroney-trained son of The Fac­tor is likely to head to Bendigo to­mor­row for his next start.

Last Thurs­day morn­ing he strode com­fort­ably over 1000m and pulled up well af­ter cov­er­ing the jour­ney in 1.08.14 and his fi­nal 400m 25.07.

The form around him has been hold­ing up quite well and he should ap­pre­ci­ate the step up to 1300m at Bendigo.

MIRIMAR, also pre­pared by Moroney, didn’t have the best of runs in tran­sit last time out and it would be no sur­prise to see him bounce back to his best form at Bendigo to­mor­row.

He is hold­ing his con­di­tion well and was kept up to the mark last Thurs­day morn­ing run­ning 1400m in 1.38.68 and his 400m 25.42.

With re­cent rac­ing un­der his belt he is right at peak fit­ness and ready to run to his best to­mor­row.
