Waller’s filly looks set to make it two in a row
UNFORGOTTEN did the right thing for this column in winning at Rosehill last Saturday with a devastating finish and can repeat the formula in race two tomorrow.
She is a very promising three-year-old Fastnet Rock filly trained by Chris Waller on the upward spiral and will appreciate jumping from 1300m to 1500m.
She did pacework on the inside grass on Thursday morning and finished her work off with a final 800m in 56.20 last 200m in 13.03 under a good hold.
KING DARCI accepted for two races tomorrow with trainer Tim Martin electing to run the fiveyear-old in the more suitable event being last race, a Benchamrk 80 Handicap (1300m).
There was a lot to like about his last run on a soft track (7) and will appreciate the better going tomorrow.
His trackwork has improved and he looked fit and well before working on the inside grass on Tuesday morning when he finished off his pacework with a final 800 in 53.50 working 12m out on a slow track. He finished off with a final 400m in 24.20 which was good work all around.
I AM SERIOUS also engaged in two races with Waller preferring to run the up and coming staying mare over the longer trip in race five.
The four-year-old mare has yet to miss a place in five starts with three wins, the past two in smart fashion and will relish the 1800m tomorrow.
Her trackwork was very good on Tuesday morning when she finished pacework
the pro ride with a final 800m in 53.30
400m 24.33 and was well held to the post.
She has improved at each of her four starts this time in.
Waller stablemates IN
TIMES OF WAR and OVERSTEP must both be given a chance in race eight.
In Times Of War found plenty of trouble at the start and in the run her last start she continues to look great after four runs this preparation.
She worked steady pacework on Thursday morning and the stable reports that all is well with the Street Cry mare who is very honest.
Overstep was scratched last Saturday at Rosehill and is up from Waller’s Melbourne stable where she ran eighth to Cool Passion firstup at Caulfield on October 14.
She has worked well at Rosehill since arriving in great order.
Her best of the morning gallop last Saturday on the inside grass, 6m out, when she finished her pacework off with a final 800m in 53.70 and last 200m in 12.03 which was good work without pressure from the Exceed And Excel mare.
