The Sportsman Weekend - - Friday Night Races -

PALAZZO PUBBLICO was found to have pulled up with Car­diac Ar­rhyth­mia at her last start which was the rea­son for poor per­for­mance.

Matthew Smith has given her plenty of time to re­cover and she been kept up to the mark lately with a nice trial and a cou­ple of good gal­lops.

On Tues­day on the A Grass she worked strongly over 800m in 51.23 fi­nal 400m in 23.65 last 200m in 11.35.

It was good work and she has strong claims in the Gold Rush ( 1100m) at Hawkesbury to­mor­row.

Two-year-old DRAGONEIGHT has been im­prov­ing with each start and his work Tues­day pleased his trainer Greg Hick­man.

Gal­lop­ing solo on the A Grass over 800m he clocked 51.1 fi­nal 400m in 24.76 last 200m in 12.02.

He runs in the Claren­don Stakes (1300m) and af­ter draw­ing a good bar­rier should get a nice run to help him fin­ish off the race strongly.

Sta­ble­mate BRACES wasn’t far away at his first back from a spell and has trained on well since.

On Tues­day morn­ing he did a nice piece of work on the Pro Ride over 1000m run­ning 1.10.15 fi­nal 400m in 23.97 last 200m in 11.9.

He runs in race five Satur­day and should be fol­lowed the com­ing weeks.

MOHER from John O’Shea yard runs in the Hawkesbury Gold Cup and he has done well since re­sum­ing on the heavy track at Rand­wick.

Last Satur­day he gal­loped on the Pro Ride over 1400m in 1.38.73 fi­nal 400m in 24.77 last 200m in 11.88.

He went to the Agnes Banks/Hawkesbury com­plex for his fast work Tues­day and he came through that well and will give a good sight to­mor­row.

Classy gal­loper MU­SIC MAG­NATE has had a freshen up since fail­ing twice on heavy tracks over the car­ni­val. Tues­day on the Course Proper he worked 1000m in 1.10.71 last 400m in 24.86 last 200m in 11.72.
