GE­ORGE LU­CAS

BONS AWAY put up a crack­ing track gal­lop dur­ing the week lead­ing into the TAB Mul­ti­plier Stakes at Flem­ing­ton.

He went 800m in 51.0 and 22.50 last 400m Sandown on the course proper, which was out­stand­ing work on the morn­ing. Tries his guts out al­ways and should rep­re­sent good value on an each-way ba­sis.

OCTABELLO will be bet­ter suited to Flem­ing­ton and 1600m in the Car­bine Club Stakes, the first on Derby Day.

Worked with Mac­tier on Tues­day over 1200m, clock­ing 1.19.32 and 24.50, un­der a nice hold. LORD SUN­DOWNER worked over 1200m in evens and 11.91 last 200m.

RELLSON ven­tured to Sandown gal­loped on the course proper over 1000m in 1.07.50 and a tick 23.50 last 400m.

Each-way odds should be on of­fer for the Mick Price trained HIYAAM. She is rock hard fit and in ex­cel­lent form, so there is no rea­son she can’t be the fin­ish of the Wake­ful Stakes.

Clocked run­ning home last 1200m on Tues­day in 1.24.86 and 25.63 last 400m split. No ex­cuses for her, she’ll be in top or­der on the day and is up to this class.

The Aaron Pur­cell duo lin­ing in the Cool­more Stakes aren’t just mak­ing up the num­bers with both rat­ing as some hope in what looks to be an even and top class field race on pa­per.

JUKE­BOX and MER­CHANT NAVY worked stylishly at Sandown dur­ing the week over 800m, home last 400m in around 23.0. On their day, ei­ther is ca­pa­ble of tak­ing this fea­ture Group 1 out.

LONE EA­GLE breezed over 800m in 51.11 and 23.28 last 400m.

I’d ex­pect SILENT SEDI­TION to fig­ure promi­nently in the Group 1 Myer Clas­sic, 1600m. Went through her paces over 1200m in 1.19.20 and 24.51 last 400m. Third-up and look­ing su­per this time in.

FLY­ING JESS gal­loped over 1000m 1.08.22 and 24.06 last 400m.

Tread­mill for NOW OR LATER. She’s ca­pa­ble of tak­ing out a big one and her re­cent work has been first class.

OCEAN’S FOUR­TEEN prob­a­bly won’t be the classi­est horse to emerge from the VRC Derby, but he’s more than likely run out the trip on what we’ve seen to date.

Hit the line like a real stayer in the Derby Trial and has since trained on beau­ti­fully.

Part­nered up with Melb. Cup As­pi­rant Sin­gle Gaze, last 1200m clocked at 1.19.75 and 24.50 last 400m split.
