Blinkers a boon for Corstens colt
KOBAYASHI broke his maiden status with the application of blinkers at Caulfield last time out and two-year-old son I Am Invincible has trained on well since that victory.
Team Corstens sent him out for a sharp workout over 800m on Tuesday morning and he galloped impressively to cover the journey in 51.06 his final 400m 23.77.
He returns to Caulfield tomorrow and is sure to run well again. ODEON was denied a hat trick of victories when stewards dismissed an objection at Morphettville at his most recent run but he has returned to Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra’s stables in great order and heads to Caulfield for his next run.
He was kept up to the mark galloping solo over 1200m on Tuesday morning and had plenty up his sleeve clocking 1.23.87 for the trip and 24.98 for his last 400m.
Connections are aiming at the S.A. Derby as his main goal this preparation and he should prove hard to beat on Saturday prior heading back to Adelaide. Mark Kavanagh paired up
BORD DE GAIN and ATLANTIC CITY for a hit out on Tuesday morning they combined to produce one of the morning’s most impressive pieces of work.
Both horses pulled up well after running 1000m in 1.04.95 and their closing 400m a slick 23.62.
Bord De Gain faces his toughest test to date at Caulfield on Saturday following impressive victories at his two starts to date while Atlantic City travels to Adelaide on Saturday ready run to his best.
SOJU WARRIOR, also prepared by Kavanagh, has come through his last start at Sandown in terrific order heads to Caulfield for next start.
He maintained a strong gallop on Tuesday morning to run his last 1400m in 1.33.24 and his closing 400m 24.15.
The son of New Approach hadn’t raced for just over a month leading into his latest run and should strip a bit fitter with that run under his belt when he lines up this weekend. The Mike Moroney-trained
RHYTHM TO SPARE has derived a good deal of benefit from his first up run behind Hooked in the Victoria Handicap and galloped strongly over 1200m on Tuesday morning.
After travelling steadily through the early stages of his workout he built momentum from 600m mark to clock 1.20.87 for the overall distance and 24.08 his final 400m.
He should appreciate stepping up to 1600m at Caulfield and is a previous second up winner.
Kobayashi is poised to make it two in a row at Caulfield
