Quick back-up suits Tan­gled

The Sportsman Weekend - - Friday Night Races -

TAN­GLED heads to Hawkesbury to­mor­row for the stand-alone meet­ing and looks to be a strong winning chance for Chris Waller and Ker­rin McEvoy in the Claren­don ( 1300m), a qual­ity race for two-year-olds.

His last start win had merit at Wy­ong on April 19 when he beat Bid­wee by a neck af­ter rac­ing wide for most of the race.

Tan­gled worked fast on Wed­nes­day and looked bright healthy af­ter trot­ting can­ter­ing on the B Sand (re­verse way) ready for the quick back-up.

TAKE­DOWN was beaten 6.1-lens first-up in the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes at Rand­wick on April 15 on a heavy 8 track.

Trainer Gary Moore has ac­cepted at Ea­gle Farm on Satur­day in the 1200m Group 2 Vic­tory Stakes (1200m) and he will just about win but he needs a dead or bet­ter track.

His work on the course proper Mon­day morn­ing was best I have seen him work run­ning 1000m in 1:1.21 with sta­ble­mate Ab­so­lutely Win, their last 600m in 35.89, fi­nal 200m 12.44 with race jockey Tim Clark in the sad­dle. STAR OF MONSOON is ready to win fol­low­ing two runs on heavy tracks for trainer Ger­ald Ryan.

He runs on Satur­day at Hawkesbury in the 1400m Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas and given a good track has an each-way chance as he can work very well.

On Tues­day morn­ing, his 600m with sta­ble­mate Man­dolize was strong in 36.98, last 200m in 12.23 and the mark- ers out 16m – strong work all around as usual from this blue­blooded in­di­vid­ual. MOR­TAR PLA­TOON should ap­pre­ci­ate the 2100m of Satur­day’s open­ing race at Hawkesbury – a Bench­mark 84 hand­i­cap rep­re­sent­ing Chris Waller and Tommy Berry.

The horse’s work on Tues­day was good when he fin­ished off his pace­work, sec­ond lap, with a fi­nal 800m in 53.87, last 200m in 12.68 the mark­ers out 16m – it was good stay­ing work and he is sure to run well on the week­end. GAM­BLER’S BLUES has now had two runs this time for trainer Tim Martin and is ready to run in the last race at Hawkesbury over the 1500m, a bench­mark 78 af­fair.

Gam­bler’s Blues was in good or­der be­fore work­ing on the inside grass, 15m out, when he fin­ished off his pace­work with a fi­nal 800m in 53.25, last 400m in 24.46 was strong all around work.
