CAULFIELD

The Sportsman Weekend - - THE TRACKWORK WINNERS - GE­ORGE LU­CAS

HOW can you pos­si­bly fault YU­LONG JAN­UARY on what we’ve seen to date?

It was a pro­fes­sional de­mo­li­tion last start up in Syd­ney and he war­rants a crack at the listed Gothic Stakes (1400m) for three-year-old’s Caulfield to­mor­row.

He wasn’t out to break records on Tues­day morn­ing, work­ing over 800m in 52.50 and home in 24.98 for his last 400m.

There’s no rea­son he can’t make it four on the trot.

BONS AWAY just missed out in a driv­ing fin­ish to the line last out­ing.

He is third-up here in the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint where I ex­pect he will re­ally make his pres­ence felt once again.

Solid work on Tues­day morn­ing has the son of Bon Hoffa near­ing his peak for this.

He went 800m in 51.72 and home his last 400m in 24.04.

rep­re­sents good each-way value.

Happy to for­give VISAO on his last start flop in Syd­ney.

He was rid­den up on the pace and wide through­out and never a fac­tor.

He will start over the odds in the Caulfield Clas­sic, a tra­di­tional lead up to Derby, and must be kept safe.

He had a main­te­nance gal­lop over 1000m on Tues­day, clock­ing 1.07.44 be­fore com­ing home in 23.50 for his last 400m split.

PRIZED ICON con­tin­ues to race con­sis­tently and rates as an each-way hope in the Coongy Cup (2000m)

He turned in nice work here on Tues­day morn­ing at “Break­fast with the Stars” where he strode over 1200m in 1.21.83 and com­ing home his fi­nal 400m in 23.53.

MAHAMEDEIS worked over 1000m 1.06.85 and clocked 24.76 for his last 400m.

He hit the line well start and I wouldn’t sell him short here

Caulfield Cup as­pi­rant ACE HIGH part­nered up with Mighty Boss over 1600m on the course proper on Tues­day morn­ing.

It was an ex­cel­lent gal­lop from the pair, record­ing a time of 1.54.01, with their last 1000m timed in 1.10.67 and fi­nal 400m in 23.90.

YOUNGSTAR teamed up with Finche over 1800m, clock­ing 2.13.52 and 24.59 for their last 400m.
