Greysful filly looks on the right track for Oaks

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - WAR­REN HUNTLY

GREYSFUL GLAM­OUR ap­pears to en­joy­ing her time in Mel­bourne and Mark Newn­ham took the op­por­tu­nity to gal­lop her on course proper last Tues­day morn­ing in prepa­ra­tion for Thurs­day’s Group 1 Kennedy Oaks.

The daugh­ter of Stra­tum fin­ished off her work­out in good style to cover 1200m 1.22.56 and fi­nal 400m 23.39.

She was a dom­i­nant vic­tor at Flem­ing­ton two starts ago and is sure to ap­pre­ci­ate re­turn­ing to the same venue on Thurs­day.

VINICUNCA has been pro­gress­ing nicely for the Gai Water­house and Adrian Bott sta­ble in re­cent weeks and the two-year- old daugh­ter of I Am In­vin­ci­ble looks ca­pa­ble of mak­ing her pres­ence felt on de­but.

With two re­cent jumpout vic­to­ries un­der her belt she stepped out over 600m last Thurs­day morn­ing and looked ca­pa­ble of go­ing much faster than the 39.98 she recorded for jour­ney and the 24.42 she clocked for her last 400m.

The sta­ble boast an im­pres­sive record with their early sea­son ju­ve­niles and Vinicunca has been af­forded a solid ground­ing to head to Flem­ing­ton on Oaks Day.

The team at Lind­say Park ap­pear to have a strong group of two-year- olds ready to de­but and ART COL­LEC­TION has been show­ing a good deal of prom­ise in her re­cent jumpouts.

Last Fri­day the daugh­ter of Fast­net Rock won her heat over about 800m by more than two lengths and win­ning time of 49.77 was quicker the morn­ing’s av­er­age.

She wore blink­ers dur­ing last Fri­day’s heat and with her ef­fort to win the heat should stand her in good stead to make de­but at Flem­ing­ton on Thurs­day.

PLAY THAT SONG has de­rived a good deal of ben­e­fit from her re­cent first up run over 1400m and heads to Flem­ing­ton on Oaks Day for her next start.

Last Thurs­day she gal­loped strongly over 1400m and pulled up well af­ter clock­ing 1.38.20 for the trip and 24.74 for her last 400m.

The daugh­ter of Smart Mis­sile has per­formed well when pro­duced sec­ond up in the past and should rel­ish step up to 1700m on Thurs­day. TOP OF THE RANGE, also pre­pared by Moroney, has trained on well since his sec­ond up run Moe Cup Day and is close to his top to step out over 1800m at Flem­ing­ton on Thurs­day.

He tuned up for that as­sign­ment gal­lop­ing solo over 1400m last Thurs­day morn­ing and looked bright and fit af­ter com­plet­ing his work­out in 1.39.46 and quick­en­ing up as he ap­proached the fin­ish­ing post to run his clos­ing 400m in 25.32.

With those two re­cent runs un­der his belt he looks ca­pa­ble of fight­ing out the fin­ish Oaks Day.
