The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - — Greg Splet­ter

JUS­TIFY (R5 No. 9) has put in two good runs this prep and is ready to break through. He had a tough day at the of­fice first-up when taken on for the lead the whole way, run­ning about in the straight and los­ing sec­ond spot on pro­tect, then stuck on well be­hind

fly­ing Vi­enna Power who raced well the week­end. He’s drawn well and will go close.

I thought BEAT THE BEAST (R8 No. 7) was a sneaky chance in the last on Satur­day when he didn’t make the cut and finds him­self in eas­ier com­pany to­mor­row. He got through ground on his home track last time to post a nar­row win the heavy, and at his pre­vi­ous run on rain af­fected won by 10 Rock­hamp­ton. It’s not an overly strong Bm65 while we won’t get any­thing like the $14 on of­fer on Satur­day, he’ll def­i­nitely be at back­able odds. BEAU AR­ROW (R9 No. 1) pulled up lame when gun­ning for his hat-trick at Doomben at the end of last month and is worth stick­ing with on an each way ba­sis. He was un­beaten in three starts up un­til then, with two vic­toires on this track and one in soft go­ing, and with the claim looks nicely placed.
