FIVE-YEAR-OLD sprinter

SPREADEAGLED is not far off another win when he lines up in tomorrow’s Ar­vani­tis Phi­lan­thropy Plate (1100m) on his home track.

His first runs back have been ex­cel­lent and won’t know him­self with 51.5kg af­ter the claim for Mitch Aitken.

On Tues­day morn­ing he worked home last 600m in 39.0, on the steel. Each-way.

ATMOSPHERICAL won her re­cent trial at Cran­bourne im­pres­sively and while she might be a run off still can still sprint well fresh.

Ju­ve­nile SILVERHAWK staged a big run on de­but when fin­ish­ing 4th to Pure Scot in the Sires Pro­duce Stakes.

The colt looks a live hope in the Ubet Sires Pro­duce Stakes (1400m) at Mor­phettville Parks, Group 3, set weights.

On Tues­day morn­ing he teamed up with Masculino (also en­gaged here) over 800m, clock­ing 53.27 and 24.97 last 400m in soft go­ing.

Re­ports out of Ade­laide from the Mick Price sta­ble are that NETHER­FIELD is thriv­ing over there and ex­pected to run a bot­tler of a race in the Ubet South Aus­tralian Derby, run over 2500m at Group 1 level for the 3yo’s.

Classy cus­tomer who’s bred to run the trip, has the ser­vices of D. Oliver and will present 100% on day.

RUTHVEN will need to slot in from his wide al­ley. Hasn’t put a foot wrong all prep, we know he can run the trip and has the miles in his legs to run this out strongly.

Back home I think the Henry Dy­wer trained

LEOTIE can im­prove out of sight third-up in the Pan­care Foun­da­tion Plate (1400m).

Her work dur­ing week was ex­cel­lent, strid­ing over 1000m in 1.03.12, home last 400m a slick 23.12. Cur­rently dou­ble fig­ures, value each way se­lec­tion.

In form PLENTY TO LIKE went 1000m in 1.04.56 and 23.92 last 400m. PEDRENA also worked su­per, clocked over 800m in 50.80, last 200m in 11.34.

The Lad­brokes Hcp, 1600m, ap­pears to be a nice race on pa­per for CASTELO, trained out of the C. McDon­ald yard.

Drops down to 54kg, rock hard fit and com­ing off a nice 4th last start be­hind Burn­ing Front here at Caulfield.

On Tues­day morn­ing he worked 1000m in 1.07.04 and 24.95 last 400m, un­ex­tended. Gets his chance here.

GRAND DREAMER has been tick­ing over nicely in work since scor­ing an ef­fort­less last start win at Rand­wick.

Ran sec­ond in a re­cent trial be­hind Hooked at Cran­bourne top­ping him off nicely for the step up to 2000m in Chan­dler Macleod Clas­sic. DUKE OF ELLING­TON is pro­gress­ing well for the Ciaron Ma­her sta­ble and a def­i­nite win­ning hope here. Went through his paces on Tues­day morn­ing, last 1000m home in 1.06.31 and 23.85 400m split.
