Jon on song to take on the champ in Turn­bull

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - WAR­REN HUNTLY

JON SNOW and BONNEVAL teamed up for a gallop last Tues­day morn­ing and the Group 1 win­ning stable­mates from the Mur­ray Baker An­drew Fors­man sta­ble were re­spon­si­ble for one of the morn­ing’s most im­pres­sive pieces of work.

They kept close com­pany dur­ing their 1400m as­sign­ment, com­plet­ing the jour­ney in 1.31.47 and run­ning home their fi­nal 400m in 23.79.

Jon Snow pro­duced an eye catch­ing run at his first Aus­tralian start this cam­paign in the Makybe Diva Stakes and

is in fan­tas­tic or­der to take on the might of Winx in Sat­ur­day’s Turn­bull Stakes at Flem­ing­ton.

FANAAR, from the Lind­say Park team, SUN CITY, pre­pared by Tony McEvoy and LANIGERA, trained by James Cum­mings, were among a group of two-yearolds to jump out im­pres­sively down the straight course last Fri­day in prepa­ra­tion for Sat­ur­day’s Maribyrnong Trial Stakes.

There wasn’t much be­tween them as they passed the fin­ish­ing post record­ing 46.35 which was the quick­est of four heats run over 800m.

All three horses men­tioned should ac­quit them­selves well if they line up at Flem­ing­ton

on the week­end.

GRAND SCHOLAR was an­other two-year- old from the Tony McEvoy sta­ble to per­form well in last Fri­day’s straight course jumpouts and the daugh­ter of Wand­jina looked very tractable win­ning her heat in 47.10.

McEvoy has a strong team of ju­ve­niles that will make their de­buts at ei­ther Flem­ing­ton next Sat­ur­day or Caulfield a week later and Grand Scholar should make her pres­ence felt when she heads to the races for the first time.

PAR­SI­FAL has trained on well since his first up run over 1200m at Sale.

Last Tues­day, the son of Darci Brahma pulled up well af­ter cov­er­ing 1000m in 1.08.55 and his last 400m in 25.47.

He is a pre­vi­ous se­cond-up win­ner and should prove hard to beat over 1400m. RE­FLEC­TIV­ITY is ready re­sume and Team Hawkes have him in ter­rific or­der lead­ing into a spring cam­paign.

He im­pressed win­ning the quick­est of the jumpouts on course proper from the 2000m start last Fri­day and his time of 47.32 for the trip of about 800m un­der­lines how well he is com­ing to hand.

In the same heat ALL THAT SHE WANTS and SUNQUEST were also re­spon­si­ble for per­for­mances worth not­ing and should be keep­ing on side when they step out in the near fu­ture.
