Kaonic ca­pa­ble of mak­ing it two in a row

The Sportsman Weekend - - The Trackwork Winners - JOHN MOC


KAONIC went well enough at his sec­ond start to win at Can­ter­bury on October 4, to war­rant a chance at Rand­wick to­mor­row over 1600m for the three-year-olds.

The Chris Waller-trained son of Sav­abeel is an im­pres­sive type and im­prov­ing with each gal­lop. On Saturday he fin­ished off his pace­work a fi­nal 800m on the in­side grass (re­verse way) in 54.40, with the mark­ers out 6m.

It was strong work and gets his chance to mea­sure up to stronger op­po­si­tion on the week­end.

TAC­TI­CAL FOR­MA­TION is in the as­tute Ger­ald Ryan sta­ble that keeps pro­vid­ing early com­ers and this son of Moss­man has abil­ity to take hand in the fin­ish of the 1000m open­ing two-year-old hand­i­cap to­mor­row.

Ryan showed his hand when the young­ster led all-the-way to win by six lengths in a Rose­hill bar­rier trial, run­ning 54.70 for 900m

His work last Saturday on the Pro Ride was sound, run­ning 52.97 for 800m with a fi­nal 400m in 24.15.

He looks ready to run well on the week­end.

FI­ESTA runs in the same race and looks a well-above av­er­age filly by I Am In­vin­ci­ble with the ben­e­fit of one run when clos­ing and luck­less third in Listed Gim­crack Stakes on Septem­ber 30.

She then had a quiet trial when a hard held sec­ond to a very smart one in Pure Ela­tion at War­wick Farm on October 9.

Then she ran the best of the morn­ing gal­lop on the in­side grass (out 11m) run­ning 55.60 for the 800m with a fi­nal 400m in 25.50.

It ex­cel­lent work for a two-year-old filly who is ready to win.

AL­WARD has won four races from his last five starts with the lat­est win at Rand­wick on October 7 when he beat Up ‘N’ Rolling and looks like a gen­uine stayer.

Trainer Chris Waller has the five-year-old im­port well placed to­mor­row against this op­po­si­tion over 2400m and will be hard to beat.

He gal­loped strongly with sta­ble­mate Tan­gled last Saturday on the in­side grass (out 6m) re­verse way, run­ning 1000m in 1.09.10 with the last 600m in 38.60, a fi­nal 400m 24.66.

KING DARCI has had one run af­ter a break when eighth, beaten 3.8 lengths by Chalk at Rand­wick on October 7 when rid­den by a claim­ing ap­pren­tice.

Trainer Tim Martin has en­gaged Adam Hyeron­imus on the week­end in a 1400m Bench­mark 85 Hand­i­cap.

I haven’t timed King Darci in the past two weeks but he’s a good sta­ble and does look well placed.

Mar­ket moves should be fol­lowed.

TAN­GLED fol­lowed to­mor­row at Caulfield in the set weights three­year-old Group 3 Clas­sic (2000m) for Chris Waller and Blake Shinn.

The Snitzel colt was a good sec­ond to Ace High, beaten a short head, in the Group 1 Spring Cham­pion Stakes at Rand­wick on October 7 when hav­ing his third run back from a spell.

His work with Al­ward last Saturday was win­ning work and Tan­gled should be backed on the week­end as he has def­i­nitely im­proved.
