Baker 3YO set to re­peat first-up per­for­mance

The Sportsman Weekend - - Interntional Races -

CADO­GAN hit the line strongly when a first-up win­ner at the Scone car­ni­val and has trained on well since.

On Tues­day he had a nice gal­lop with a mate on the A Grass over 1000m in 1.04.84 fi­nal 400m in 23.56 last 200m in 11.49 run­ning through the line.

Trainer Bjorn Baker has al­ways had a good opin­ion of him and if he can re­peat his first-up ef­fort will be hard to beat in race two at Rand­wick.

From the same sta­ble is the promis­ing gal­loper CHAM­PAGNE CUDDLES who is re­sum­ing to­mor­row at Rand­wick and she looked in good con­di­tion walk­ing around the tower be­fore go­ing out to work Tues­day.

The Not A Sin­gle Doubt two-year-old filly went on the Grass over 800m run­ning 55.84 fi­nal 400m in 25.97 last 200m in 12.92 un­der a tight reign.

She was im­pres­sive win­ning at her only start last Oc­to­ber and she has been given a good ground­ing for her re­turn in race one to­mor­row.

One of her dan­gers to­mor­row is the Gary Portelli-trained LIP­IZ­ZAN whose been con­sis­tent in all of her runs cul­mi­nat­ing in a win at her last start.

Tues­day on the A Grass she cruised over 800m in 53.98 fi­nal 400m in 26.25 last 200m in 12.98.

She is at her peak now and with only a light weight may take some run­ning down.

ANISHA was rid­den up­side down at her last start when she sat four deep on the speed and her run should be to­tally over­looked.

Trainer Mark Newn­ham has taken her along qui­etly since that run and Tues­day she worked over 1200m in 1.26.13 fi­nal 400m in 26.61 last 200m in 12.67.

She seems to en­joy rac­ing at Rand­wick and with Josh Parr re­tain the ride has a strong chance in race six to­mor­row.

CONAR­CHIE from the Clarry Con­ners yard has had two runs back a spell and both have been full of merit.

He has had a freshen up since his last start and had an easy bar­rier trial at Rose­hill a fort­night back.

On Tues­day he worked on the Course Proper over 1000m in 1.09.64 last 400m in 24.15 fi­nal 200m in 11.96.

He runs race nine to­mor­row and his chances will im­prove even more with the prospect of a soft sur­face.

The Dar­ren Bead man trained POLEMIC broke his maiden last start at Gos­ford and might now start to live up to the prom­ise he has al­ways shown.

On Tues­day he gal­loped strongly on the A Grass over 1200m in 1.22.64 fi­nal 400m in 23.46 last 200m in 11.41.

He runs at Hawkes­bury on Sun­day and will go close to win­ning again.

Cham­pagne Cuddles is primed to re­turn to rac­ing at Rand­wick
