Laure Me In looks hard to beat at Flem­ing­ton

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - WAR­REN HUNTLY

PE­DRO XIMENEZ didn’t have the best of luck at a cru­cial stage at Flem­ing­ton last time out but the mike Moroney-trained stayer has come through that race in great shape and lines up the Bagot Hand­i­cap at Flem­ing­ton to­day.

He was kept to mark cov­er­ing 1600m in 1.52.67 and his fi­nal 400m 24.77 last Thurs­day and heads to Flem­ing­ton ready to run his best.

LOUISVILLE LIP, also pre­pared by Moroney, was beaten by a promis­ing gal­loper in Tav­i­s­tock Dancer at Caulfield last time out and he has held his con­di­tion well since that run.

Last Thurs­day looked bright and fit work­ing solo over 1400m, cov­er­ing jour­ney in 1.40.18 and his last 400m 25.89. He heads to Sandown to­mor­row for his next start and Moroney couldn’t have him any fit­ter that as­sign­ment.

Mathew Eller­ton and Si­mon Zahra should be able to find a suit­able maiden event for HAUTCLERE in the near fu­ture fol­low­ing a stand out per­for­mance dur­ing last Fri­day’s jumpouts.

In the quick­est time of the morn­ing for the heats run over about 800m he stopped clock in 44.99 after trav­el­ling well off the in­side rail on the steeple grass track.

He looks have de­vel­oped nicely dur­ing his re­cent break and is sure take a power of

beat­ing when he re­sumes in the near fu­ture.

MORE SUN­DAYS dis­played a great deal of prom­ise dur­ing his first rac­ing cam­paign and the Lind­say Park­trained gal­loper is pro­gress­ing well lead­ing into a sum­mer prepa­ra­tion.

He fin­ished strongly to record a time on 45.82 in a jumpout over ap­prox­i­mately 800m last Fri­day with LUCID DREAMER also catch­ing the eye in the same heat.

The team at Lind­say Park are sure to find a suit­able as­sign­ment for More Sun­days in the com­ing weeks and Lucid Dreamer should be worth keep­ing on side when he makes his de­but for Team Hawkes. LAURE ME IN went to the line untested at Caulfield on Box­ing Day and con­sid­er­ing his lack of a solid hit out that day, it’s no sur­prise to see him back­ing up quickly at Flem­ing­ton to­day.

The form around his re­cent runs is hold­ing up strongly and he had been work­ing well lead­ing into his Box­ing Day run.

Tony McEvoy has utilised a quick back up suc­cess­fully with him al­ready this prepa­ra­tion and he is sure to prove hard to beat at Flem­ing­ton.
