Sayed ca­pa­ble of re­peat per­for­mance

The Sportsman Weekend - - The Trackwork Winners -

SAYED did the right thing for us by win­ning last start at Rand­wick on Au­gust 5 beat­ing Get On The Grange by over 5 lengths and run­ning away.

The Storm At­lantic five-yearold stayer can bring up a win­ning hat-trick to­mor­row at Rand­wick over 2400m in race two.

The French im­port ran a best of the morn­ing gal­lop last Satur­day on the in­side grass (out 11m) when timed over 1000m in 1:09.88, last 600m in 39.20 and fi­nal 200m in 12.66.

The was strong stay­ing work by the Chris Waller-trained gal­loper.

Sta­ble­mate FOUR CARAT will start in the same race and af­ter three runs back from a spell his track­work has im­proved.

He also worked last Satur­day and was clocked over 1400m in 1:38.90 with a fi­nal 600m in 38.90

last 400m in 23.90. That has been the best he has worked this prepa­ra­tion and is sure to make a bet­ter show­ing in the Rand­wick Mayor’s Cup on week­end.

WINX re­sumes from a spell in the Group 2 Bob Ing­ham War­wick Stakes ( 1400m) and is long odds-on to bring up 18 straight wins.

Waller has done a fan­tas­tic job with the cham­pion mare who has re­turned in per­fect or­der and if any­thing I think she looks more for­ward con­di­tion.

Her track­work on Mon­day was as usual first rate when work­ing on the Course Proper (8m out) over 1000m in 1:09.60, last 600m in 39.03 and fi­nal 200m in 12.23.

She was only coast­ing up the

straight and came off the track look­ing a pic­ture of health and fit­ness.

HARPER’S CHOICE ran a solid fifth when re­sum­ing at Rand­wick on Au­gust 5 in the Group 2 Mis­sile Stakes (1200m).

He was run off his feet early and do­ing best work at the fin­ish and will ap­pre­ci­ate to­mor­row’s ex­tra dis­tance.

He has come through that race very well and has a genu-

ine place hope in the WFA con­test for trainer Ger­ald Ryan and jockey Glyn Schofield.

DE­PLOY has not raced since the Bris­bane Car­ni­val in June and re­sumes in the Group 3 Show County Qual­ity (1200m).

Ryan has not tri­alled the smart sprinter but is work­ing well. This was ev­i­dent on Tues­day morn­ing when with sta­ble­mate Tango Rain the Course Proper (out 14m).

The pair dashed up 600m in 35.56 with a fi­nal 200m in 11.94 and De­ploy is ready to run a great race to­mor­row.

TRAPEZE ARTIST has his first run back to­mor­row in the Group 3 Up And Com­ing Stakes (1300m) and has 61kg to carry.

The Ryan-trained colt is not at his top but is a very good three-year-old who showed his tal­ent with a sixth in last sea­son’s Golden Slip­per.

His lat­est trial on Au­gust 1 will help him fit­ness wise when se­cond to Cham­pagne Cud­dles beaten a short half head in 54.50 for 900m heat.

His work on Tues­day morn­ing on the Course Proper (out 14m) was good when work­ing with sta­ble­mate Inz’N’Out over 600m in 35.95 with a fi­nal 200m in 12.19.

This son of Snitzel is worth fol­low­ing this spring.

Sayed is on track to score a hat-trick at Rand­wick
