Waller import primed to win
HIGH Chaparral stayer
GREAT GLEN is ready to open up his account this preparation when he lines
in race three at Rosehill tomorrow.
The Chris Waller-trained six-year-old went down fighting last start when third to stablemate Vassel, beaten half a length at Rosehill on November 11.
That was his fourth run back and he is open to further improvement and Glyn Schofield sticks with the import.
He worked on course proper Tuesday morning, running 1.38.10 with the last 600m in 40.10, last 400m 25.00 what was strong work as he worked from the 2000m Shute and he continued his pacework 15m out and looked fit.
More Than Ready fouryear-old COSMIC ENGINE lines up in a winnable race tomorrow over 1500m contesting race five at Rosehill.
After winning firstup over 1250m the Waller=trained galloper put in a solid effort when third to Redouble and Flow over 1400m.
He produced a winning gallop on Tuesday working with stablemate Sparky Lad.
Striding on the course proper, 15m out, they recorded the best of morning over 800m in 53.50 with the last 200m 11.94.
GLENALL has definitely improved off his first-up win at Rosehill on November 18 when the Redoute’s Choice four-year-old beat Tactical Advantage by a long head in class record time for Team Hawkes.
He has struck a very hard Starlight Stakes (1100m) but he should run well and Brenton Avdulla sticks with him.
I missed the early part of his workout on Tuesday, galloping inside grass 11m out, but his final 200m in 11.30 was the work of a good horse and I think his race record shows that.
BLACK ON GOLD was beaten into second place again by the very good Interlocuter last start by 1.3 lengths at Rosehill on November 18.
Waller has done a very good job with the Sebring four-year-old and he looks a chance in tomorrow’s ATC Cup (2000m) with Katy O’Hara booked again.
On Tuesday morning he did 1000m pacework on the course proper, 15m out, in 1.10.00 with a last 600m 38.30 and final 200m in 12.40 with something left the tank for the weekend.
BEST GUESS did a very good job to win at Rosehill on November 18, beating Star Reflection by 2.3 lengths and was getting away from the opposition.
WALLER has the Snippetson four-year-old in a 1300m Benchmark 85 Handicap and again he is the horse they all have to beat.
His 800m on the course proper, 15m out, in 53.54 with a final 200m 12.39 which was another strong gallop.
PICK ME UP had a quiet stewards trial at Rosehill on Friday, November 24, when fifth to To Excess in a 1030m heat in 1.01.30.
Trainer Tim Martin has placed him in a 1100m race at Canterbury tonight and should prove hard to beat as he continues look great and had been racing against stronger opposition in Saturday class.
Great Glen is on track to score his first win of this preparation after posting an impressive hitout at Rosehill on Tuesday.
