GREAT GLEN is ready to open up his ac­count this preparation when he lines

in race three at Rose­hill to­mor­row.

The Chris Waller-trained six-year-old went down fight­ing last start when third to sta­ble­mate Vas­sel, beaten half a length at Rose­hill on Novem­ber 11.

That was his fourth run back and he is open to fur­ther im­prove­ment and Glyn Schofield sticks with the im­port.

He worked on course proper Tues­day morn­ing, run­ning 1.38.10 with the last 600m in 40.10, last 400m 25.00 what was strong work as he worked from the 2000m Shute and he con­tin­ued his pace­work 15m out and looked fit.

More Than Ready fouryear-old COS­MIC EN­GINE lines up in a winnable race to­mor­row over 1500m con­test­ing race five at Rose­hill.

Af­ter win­ning firstup over 1250m the Waller=trained gal­loper put in a solid ef­fort when third to Re­dou­ble and Flow over 1400m.

He pro­duced a win­ning gal­lop on Tues­day work­ing with sta­ble­mate Sparky Lad.

Strid­ing on the course proper, 15m out, they recorded the best of morn­ing over 800m in 53.50 with the last 200m 11.94.

GLENALL has def­i­nitely im­proved off his first-up win at Rose­hill on Novem­ber 18 when the Red­oute’s Choice four-year-old beat Tac­ti­cal Ad­van­tage by a long head in class record time for Team Hawkes.

He has struck a very hard Starlight Stakes (1100m) but he should run well and Bren­ton Av­dulla sticks with him.

I missed the early part of his work­out on Tues­day, gal­lop­ing in­side grass 11m out, but his fi­nal 200m in 11.30 was the work of a good horse and I think his race record shows that.

BLACK ON GOLD was beaten into sec­ond place again by the very good In­ter­locuter last start by 1.3 lengths at Rose­hill on Novem­ber 18.

Waller has done a very good job with the Se­bring four-year-old and he looks a chance in to­mor­row’s ATC Cup (2000m) with Katy O’Hara booked again.

On Tues­day morn­ing he did 1000m pace­work on the course proper, 15m out, in 1.10.00 with a last 600m 38.30 and fi­nal 200m in 12.40 with some­thing left the tank for the week­end.

BEST GUESS did a very good job to win at Rose­hill on Novem­ber 18, beat­ing Star Re­flec­tion by 2.3 lengths and was get­ting away from the op­po­si­tion.

WALLER has the Snip­pet­son four-year-old in a 1300m Bench­mark 85 Hand­i­cap and again he is the horse they all have to beat.

His 800m on the course proper, 15m out, in 53.54 with a fi­nal 200m 12.39 which was an­other strong gal­lop.

PICK ME UP had a quiet stew­ards trial at Rose­hill on Fri­day, Novem­ber 24, when fifth to To Ex­cess in a 1030m heat in 1.01.30.

Trainer Tim Martin has placed him in a 1100m race at Can­ter­bury tonight and should prove hard to beat as he con­tin­ues look great and had been rac­ing against stronger op­po­si­tion in Satur­day class.

Great Glen is on track to score his first win of this preparation af­ter post­ing an im­pres­sive hitout at Rose­hill on Tues­day.
