BELMONT

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - — Greg Splet­ter

It’s hard to see them beat­ing DRIFTSTAR (R6 No. 1) when he re­sumes in three-year-old com­pany at Belmont to­mor­row. The son of Se­poy had three runs as a ju­ve­nile win­ning the first one by pan­els as an odd­son fave be­fore pulling up lame in Listed com­pany when again sent round at pro­hib­i­tive odds. He was out­classed in the Kar­rakatta Plate but showed he has re­turned as good as ever with a five length de­mo­li­tion of his ri­vals in a re­cent trial. Has class edge on this line-up.

MORN­ING SONG (R2 No. 11) was nar­rowly beaten in a blan­ket fin­ish on de­but here two weeks ago and back to maiden grade should atone. She was only half

length from the win­ner Stella Anne on the line in the 0MW and good draw here Wil­liam Pike will give her ev­ery hope. RACY AVA (R7 No. 11) worked home en­cour­ag­ingly first-up and out to the mile dis­tance to­mor­row can go one bet­ter. Sec­ond-up last prep she scored an easy win in tougher grade af­ter com­ing off a sim­i­lar first-up run, and wasn’t dis­graced in the Oaks later in her prep. She is bound for much higher grade than to­mor­row’s as­sign­ment and will be hard to hold out.
