EZR duo set for features
MATHEW Ellerton and Simon Zahra paired up BOOKER and
LUCQUES for a workout on Tuesday morning in preparation for their respective assignments at Morphettville and Flemington tomorrow.
Galloping in the clockwise direction on steeple grass they worked impressively to cover 1000m in 1.04.49 and their final 400m 23.25.
Booker, a two-year-old daughter of Written Tycoon, heads to Adelaide for the National Stakes in great shape following her dominant debut victory at Flemington while LUCQUES is at peak fitness for the Andrew Ramsden Stakes.
MR INDIVIDUAL has trained on well since his most recent run at Caulfield and with the benefit of a solid hit out in a jumpout last Friday looked strong and fit working steadily over 1000m on Tuesday morning.
The Team Corstens-trained son of Starspangledbanner had plenty up his sleeve cruising over the journey in 1.10.45 and wasn’t extended over the concluding stages to run his last 400m in 26.63. From a favourable barrier draw he is primed to run well over 1400m at Flemington. Godolphin galloper DEMON
STRATE has been kept on the fresh side finishing the heels of the placegetters in VOBIS Gold Sprint at Caulfield and caught eye with a short sharp workout on Tuesday morning.
Now in the care of Darren Beadman he pulled up well after clocking 1.06.57 for his 1000m assignment, dashing home his closing 400m in 23.62.
The four year old son of New Approach looks ready to run well in the Flemington Straight Six. AMARELA didn’t have the best of luck in a blanket finish behind Stormsabrewing over 1600m at Flemington last time out and the Nigel Blackistontrained daughter of Pentire re- turns to Flemington for a similar event this weekend.
She was another galloper to work in the clockwise direction on steeple grass on Tuesday morning and her effort to run 1000m 1.04.80 and her final 400m in 23.84 was have
ready to to her best on Saturday. The Mike Moroney-trained
VANDANCER also worked in the clockwise direction on the steeple grass on Tuesday morn- ing and she heads to Morphettville tomorrow contest the Centaurea Stakes.
The daughter of Savabeel looked bright and fit after Tuesday morning’s workout, covering 1600m in 1.53.08 and her last 40m 23.88.
She appears to be showing no ill effects from her recent runs in Sydney and any rain that falls at Morphettville in the lead up to her race would only enhance prospects.
Lucques will appreciate the two miles in the Andrew Ramsden Stakes at Flemington
