The An­drew Noblet-trained SPE­CIAL ALERT has im­proved with ev­ery run since lo­cat­ing to Vic­to­ria.

Drops down 1kg on her last start sec­ond and rates as some sort of long­shot each-way hope in the Bench­mark 90 Fit­ness For Di­a­betes Plate.

It was just a main­te­nance gal­lop on Tues­day morn­ing when she went 1600m in evens and 24.75 for her last 400m.

She is fit and there will be no ex­cuses.

YU­LONG JAN­UARY was scratched from the Car­bine Club Stakes and will stick to the 1400m of Listed Spring­time Stakes (1400m) for three-year-olds.

The colt has had a fault­less prep, is fit and doesn’t know how to run a bad race.

On Tues­day morn­ing, he worked 800m in 54.0 and 25.0 for his last 400m.

He’ll be at his peak for this.

MISS AD­MI­RA­TION’s last run de­fied the on pace bias, she man­aged to run home quite well over con­clud­ing stages when oth­ers couldn’t.

Ex­pect her be there­abouts in the Group 3 Queen El­iz­a­beth Stakes (2600m) to­mor­row.

Tues­day’s work topped her off nicely, go­ing a leisurely 2000m in evens and 25.45 for last 400m split.

WALL OF FIRE worked over 1600m in even time. ALOISIA is on the seven day back-up and up in dis­tance in the Group 2 Ma­tri­arch Stakes.

Fit­ness wise, she’s just about peak­ing and at her best, she would give this a shake.

She will find touch eas­ier than her last out­ing in Group 1 com­pany.

Out of ex­cuses for her. Each way.

It was a valiant ef­fort from PRIZED ICON, who chased hard last start and went down by half a length in the Crys­tal Mile.

Up to 2000m in the Group 1 Mackin­non Stakes and he’ll be at juicy each-way odds for his ad­mir­ers.

On Tues­day, he went through paces over 1200m in 1.27.39 and home in 38.0 for his last 600m.

He is fit enough if good enough and his only two starts at Flem­ing­ton have net­ted a win in the Group 1 VRC Derby and a three quar­ter length sec­ond Aus­tralian Guineas.

An out­side each-way hopes from the Ma­her camp in the Bench­mark 80 Grand Hand­i­cap (1100m) and SHERRIF

JOHN STONE and LAGER­FELD who worked to­gether at the beach dur­ing the week, main­tain­ing their fit­ness lev­els.

Both will be spot on for this as­sign­ment.
