LIB RAN put ina big per­for­mance to win the Kingston Town Stakes, beat­ing An to

io Giuseppe by 1.5 lengths, Life Less Or­di­nary by two length sand Who Shot The­bar man by 2.1 lengths.

They are all trained by Ch is Wa l ler and it is ha rd to see them turn­ing the ta­bles on Li­bran in to­mor­row’s Group 1 T he Metro - pol ita n (2 4 0 0m) at Randw ick.

Lib ran has def­i­nitely im­proved in fit­ness and well­be­ings ince his lastw will take a lot of beat­ing on the week­end.

His work last Satur­day over 1400 mon the course proper, with the rail14m out, was done in 1.39.00 with the last600m9.4andf in al 2 in12.80i thrace V1 - SPME01Z01MA

jockey Gly n Schofield on and not test­ing him.

It was top - class work and the best of the morn­ing from a good stayer.

CHAU­TAUQUA was beaten 2.2 lengths first-up by Redze lin The Shorts (1100 m) and it was im­pos­si­ble to beat ton-pace horses yet his clos­ing fig­ures were thebes tin the race and made up a stack of ground.

He heads to to­mor­row’ s Group 2 Pre­miere Stakes (1200 m) at head­quar­ters a lit­tle fit­ter and the ex­tra 100 m is per­fect for him.

The Team Hawkes sprinter worked from the 10 0 0m to run home his last 6 in 35.60 wit the f in al2m donei11.86 whichw as good work on the ra i ls of the course proper and came off the track feel­ing and look­ing great.

Hope­fully he will win on the week­end in h is quest to win T he Ever­est where he is t cur­rent favourite.

OUT­RA­GEOUS lines up in he Listed Breed­ers Plate (10 0 0m) for Team Hawkes at Rand­wick to­mor­row and D wayne Dunn takes the ride on the All Too Hard colt.

He has a win­ning chance and his bar­rier trial at Can­ter buy was pleas­ing when sec­ond to Bondi after never be­ing asked to do lot and covering the 900 min just un­der 54 sec­onds.

I liked his work on Tues­day when timed over600m on the in­side grass the railn 39.12 with a fi­nal 4 0 0m of 2 4.57 and last 2 0 0m com­pleted i 11.14. It was a top ef­fort Out­ra­geous was in great or­der com­ing off the rack.

PRIDE OF D ARC Ii stak­ing on a class rise when he lines up in the Listed Dul­cify Qual­ity at Rand wick to­mor­row for Tim Martin and Corey Brown.

His work on Tues­day was a sound ef­fort when timed over600m he in­side grass( rail 14 mout)n 37.13 with sta­ble mate Vict me de L’amour with af in al200m done in 11.97.

He t ravel led wel and has an each-way chance on the week­end.

TANGO RAIN has had three top runs this time in wit the lat­est run be­ing a sec­ond to Zum­bel ina at Rose hill on September 9, where he was beaten by half a length in a race run in class record time.

The four-year-old son of Man­hat­tan Rain looked great be­fore work­ing on the course proper, com­ing up 600 min 37.47 and run­ning his last 200 min 11.87 and work­ing 14 m out.

It wa st er­rfic work he has a win­ning hope in t last race, the Listed 1200 mS nitzelS print Bench­mark 90, for Ger­ald Ryan.
