EZR duo set for fea­tures

The Sportsman Weekend - - Latest Trackwork Times - WITH WAR­REN HUNTLY

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
