Blink­ers a boon for Corstens colt

The Sportsman Weekend - - Friday Night Races -

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
