The Sportsman Weekend - - The Trackwork Winners - GE­ORGE LU­CAS

TO­MOR­ROW’S Le Pine Fu­ner­als Hcp (1000m) at Sandown looks well within the grasp of the Aaron Pur­cell­trained LADY ESPRIT.

She’s been rac­ing in great heart of late and con­tin­ues to thrive in train­ing with a solid gal­lop on Tues­day, work­ing over 800m in 52.65 and 24.22 last 400m, with­out ever re­ally be­ing ex­tended at any stage.

Loves this dis­tance and al­ready a win­ner of two from three here. Each-way all day!

Speed de­mon DANUKI worked ex­tremely well dur­ing the week on his home track at Caulfield.

Clocked over 1000m in a time of 1.03.12, last 400m 23.75 and 11.64 fur­long split. No ex­cuses fit­ness wise, he’s one to take on trust.

Watch the mar­ket moves for the Mick Price-trained two-year-old BRI­TISH MEDIUM in race one over 1000m at Sandown.

By the all­con­quer­ing Snitzel, the colt ran an even trial re­cently at Cran­bourne, show­ing early toe and knock­ing up over the last 100m. He will be much bet­ter for the hitout

Track work on Tues­day morn­ing was ex­cel­lent, in com­pany. Went through his paces over 600m, clock­ing 38.18 and a slick last 400m sec­tional of 23.28 and ap­peared to have their mea­sure.

Big watch also on the Tony Vasil-trained CORONEL, who was highly fan­cied on de­but when un­placed in the listed Debu­tant Stakes.

The colt has since tri­alled sec­ond at Cran­bourne and re­ported to be work­ing very well on the train­ing track.

Best worker of the three Caulfield run­ners con­test­ing race two over 1300m is Poet’s Corner.

Up in class here, but he’s im­prov­ing with ev­ery run and he’ll con­test this a very fit horse on the day. On Tues­day morn­ing he strode over 800m in 49.06 and 23.13 last 400m, ex­cel­lent work.

KASI FARASI was im­pres­sive on de­but. Gal­loped over 1000m, home last 600m in 38.15.

Soft­est of tri­als for the tal­ented BELLEGANO, re­sum­ing off two re­cent tri­als this month. Should sprint well fresh.

Ex­pected HEAV­ENLY DE­SCENT to go a lot bet­ter than her last start fifth. She’s been up for while now and might be bet­ter suited to the step to 1600m in race three to­mor­row.

Solid gal­lop on Tues­day morn­ing, when work­ing over 1200m in 1.20.22 and 23.92 last 400m. try her on both totes.

Alinghi’s grand­son ROAR has been rac­ing in great heart this time and there’s no rea­son he won’t per­form well again when pre­sented in race four over the mile.

Robert Smer­don hasn’t done much with him since scor­ing last Fri­dayat Cran­bourne, how­ever, he’ll be rock hard fit on the day and there to win if good enough.

Just a soft trial for ATONE, who’ll be out to make it two from two. Mon­i­tor moves for him closely.

Ex­cel­lent re­turn to rac­ing by the An­drew Noblet­trained TELL THE TRUTH, who looks a real live hope in race five.

Might need an­other run, but he can def­i­nitely fig­ure promi­nently here and is one to black book this time in.

On Tues­day morn­ing he wasn’t knocked about when work­ing over 1000m, home last 400m in 24.20.

Aaron Pur­cell.
