Flight stakes looks OUR MALAMBO set to be Fab­u­lass

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - ALAN GOLLOGLY

MISS FAB­U­LASS is poised to win her first Group 1 in Sat­ur­day’s Flight Stakes (1600m) and judg­ing by her gallop on Sat­ur­day, the daugh­ter of Frankel is un­beat­able.

Work­ing solo on the course proper (20m out) with reg­u­lar part­ner Mal Oller­ton in the sad­dle, the filly ran 1000m 1.10.05 com­ing up the last 600m un­der a vice-like grip in 36.75.

Over the last 100 me­tres, Miss Fab­u­lass was awe­some run­ning through the line in a sim­i­lar style to when she won the Group 2 Tea Rose on Septem­ber 15.

Fas­ten your seat belt and en­joy the Flight!

A short time later, classy mares IN­VIN­CI­BLE GEM and JUST DREAM­ING joined forces on the Course Proper over same jour­ney and clocked 1.10.70 (37.50) un­der re­straint.

Both are com­ing along nicely and will be at their top in mid- Oc­to­ber. SENSE OF OC­CA­SION wore blink­ers when he stretched over 1200m in 1.24.70 (38.60).

The Group 1 Doomben Cup win­ner may need an­other run or two to reach peak fit­ness and it will be a bonus if he strikes soft ground.

On the sub­ject of Group 1’s, two win­ners at that elite level fought out the fin­ish of the open­ing trial (1000m) at New­cas­tle last Wed­nes­day.

Sires Pro­duce win­ner EL DO­RADO DREAM­ING fin­ished strongly to de­feat Gal­axy vic­tor IN HER TIME right on the post af­ter com­ing from four lengths be­hind at the 600m.

El Do­rado Dream­ing de­parted for Mel­bourne week­end and will run in Sun­day’s Thou­sand Guineas Pre­lude at Caulfield.

One of her ri­vals will be sta­ble­mate SMART MELODY. Lock in the Quinella.

In Her Time will run in this Sat­ur­day’s mini Ever­est, the Group 2 Pre­miere Stakes (1200m) at Rand­wick and will then climb the $13 mil­lion moun­tain as TAB’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive on Oc­to­ber 13.

The fol­low­ing 1000m Open di­vi­sion was won by ex Sin­ga­pore stayer ZIP A DEE DOO DAH who hasn’t started for 66 weeks due to a ten­don in­jury.

Next out of the blocks was the speedy All Stand who led from the jump over 800m and bolted up.

But flash­ing light was on the fourth placed TAC­TI­CAL AD­VAN­TAGE who un­der a triple strong hold from B.Av­dulla.

You can un­load on the sprinter next Mon­day at Kens­ing­ton track.

Trainer Brett Thomp­son made the 300km trip from Gul­gong to New­cas­tle with a cou­ple of two-year- olds and the re­turn jour­ney would have felt much eas­ier.

DE­VI­ATE (F. Not A Sin­gle Doubt x Anadan) and PRESS WEEK (F. Hinch­in­brook x Presslist) both won with au­thor­ity.

Oth­ers to fol­low from the ses­sion: WIN­TER SONATA, LAST ACE, PEN­TAGON and MISS ACAD­EMY.
