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.
