Kedah’s work­ing well on the track

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork -

LAST start New­cas­tle win­ner KEDAH has con­tin­ued to go for­ward and the daugh­ter of Per In­canto looked a treat when gal­lop­ing on Sat­ur­day morn­ing.

All horses worked the re­verse way over 600m on Beau­mont sur­face (12m out) and Kedah scorched over 600m in 34.80, clearly the best of the ses­sion.

The filly is a likely starter on the Kens­ing­ton track on Thurs­day in the three-yearold Bench­mark 64 (1100m) and given a low draw she will be so dan­ger­ous.

An­other star worker was ENVY OF ALL who clocked in at 35.50 and that was a top gal­lop as she was un­der re­straint through­out.

Be­fore a spell, the daugh­ter of Your Song won at Ip­swich and Royal Rand­wick over 1100m and a first-up as­sign­ment at Doomben in the next fort­night is Plan A.

New­cas­tle will host Cess­nock Cup meet­ing to­mor­row due to the coun­try track be­ing too firm for rac­ing and a num­ber of en­tered horses fig­ured promi­nently at track­work.

Af­ter pace­work, CROWN SURFER (maiden, 1600m) brushed home in 36.70 without any pres­sure and the son of Red­oute’s Choice was a pic­ture health.

Although a tad dis­ap­point­ing last start at Muswell­brook, I do think he’ll bounce back on home soil.

DE­SIGNER MAID (Class 2, 900m) wasn’t out to break the clock but was com­fort­able dur­ing her 600m in 36.90 which fol­lowed an en­cour­ag­ing trial twelve days ear­lier.

The filly was im­pres­sive on de­but at Ta­ree in July be­fore fail­ing War­wick Farm and was im­me­di­ately sent to the pad­dock. HER­MOSA RE­WARD ( Bench­mark 66, 1600m) is a model of con­sis­tency and de­spite a five month cam­paign the chest­nut mare is in su­perb or­der.

She can­tered for 1000m be­fore cruis­ing up 600m in 37.55 un­der a tight grip. POWER COM­MAND (Class 1 1200m) main­tains her fit­ness level and will give you a great sight on her home ground.

Af­ter warm up the in­ner track the daugh­ter of Com­mands was un­der a vice-like hold when glid­ing up in 38.00. A very, very fit in­di­vid­ual.

GHI­BLI ( Light­ning, 900m) used the Pro Ride and af­ter be­ing a tad slow off the mark, he clocked 37.00 without be­ing asked for max­i­mum ef­fort.

This guy is a spe­cial­ist over the short course scam­per.

Last Tues­day’s Course Proper (17m out) gal­lops in­di­cated the fol­low­ing horses should be fol­lowed in the next month: ARTICUS, MOANA MARIE, MISS POWERBELLE, RUL­ING SYM­BOL and TARTUFO BIANCO.

Articus (in­side) is work­ing well ahead of his next as­sign­ment.
