Lees’ Posh mare set for Mel­bourne

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - ALAN GOLLOGLY

AN­OTHER batch of Kris Leestrained horses worked an­ti­clock­wise on the course proper on Satur­day morn­ing as they pre­pare for races in Mel­bourne over the next three weeks.

Gal­lant mare PRINCESS POSH can­tered from the home turn be­fore run­ning 800m in 52.70 with a fi­nal 600m in 37.90 un­der firm grip.

Her rank­ing was given a boost by the win of Shu­mookh at Caulfield last Satur­day as Princess Posh was only beaten a half-length by her in the Group 2 Golden Pen­dant on Septem­ber 22.

GUARD OF HON­OUR was given an eas­ier time cruis­ing over 600m in a pedes­trian 39.40 as the chest­nut had a much faster spin on Wednes­day.

Damien Oliver will ride the enig­matic sprinter in an Open Hand­i­cap over 955m at Moonee Val­ley on Satur­day.

Please bring that Can­berra Light­ning/Bat Out Of Hell form to the Val­ley!

IN HER TIME and TAC­TI­CAL AD­VAN­TAGE will also head south and they were both re­stricted to steady pace­work re­verse way.

JUST DREAMIN and KOOL VIN­NIE pro­duced a crack­ing clock­wise gal­lop on the main track (6m out) when they clocked off their 1000m in 1.08.00 (34.75).

The pair are likely starters at Rand­wick on Satur­day and will be ex­tremely hard to beat in their re­spec­tive events.

PIERINA has re­turned from her win­ter break in im­pec­ca­ble or­der and looked sharp on Tues­day when joined by THE TENOR on the course proper (16m out).

The duo recorded 800m in 51.15 (35.50) and that is a top class gal­lop.

P.S. The Tenor ran third in Satur­day’s Brian Crow­ley.

ARGIE BARGIE didn’t fire when re­sum­ing at Tam­worth a fort­night ago but ex­pect huge lift next start as her hard held gal­lop of 51.10 (37.00) on the pro ride was spe­cial.

Add to that, the mare’s sec­ond up stats of 4-1-2-1 and her lik­ing for rain af­fected tracks, we may have found our­selves a dou­ble digit win­ner.

AN­GEL OF HEAVEN (un­raced filly by Red­oute’s Choice from Lights Of Heaven) and ONLY WANNA SING (Doomben two-year- old win­ner Fe­bru­ary) matched strides on the Pro Ride over 800m in 51.60 (37.70).

It was an en­cour­ag­ing piece of work es­pe­cially from An­gel Of Heaven who has im­proved so much since her lat­est bar­rier trial.

On a dreary Sun­day morn­ing I flicked onto re­plays of the coun­try bar­rier tri­als last Fri­day and Satur­day.

EUROGEM and SEBAGO at Ta­ree, PELLIZENA at Nar­romine MON­TEREY ZAR at Wagga) cre­ated an im­pres­sion. Fol­low in maiden com­pany.

Guard Of Hon­our looks ready for his next as­sign­ment at Moonee Val­ley this week­end.
