Price colt’s Boom­ing ahead of Pak­en­ham

The Sportsman Weekend - - The Trackwork Winners - GE­ORGE LU­CAS

THE Mick Price-trained gal­loper BOOM CHICKA BOOM has big wraps and should win again in Race 1 at Pak­en­ham to­mor­row.

The three-year-old cre­ated quite an im­pres­sion at his sec­ond start win­ning in the man­ner of a horse go­ing places, fast!

He’ll want to be beat­ing these to jus­tify press­ing on with the rich three-year-old Magic Mil­lions Clas­sic.

His work on Tues­day morn­ing was ex­cel­lent, dash­ing up over 800m in 48.25 and 22.75 last 400m. .

Big drop in grade this time out for JE SUIS TY­COON, who has had a seven week freshen up. She worked 1000m, home 25.50 last 400m on the bit.

The Robert Smer­don trained BELLEGANO was scratched from Satur­day’s Sandown meet­ing and re­sumes her prep in race 3 over 1200m at Moonee Val­ley tonight.

Her work has been very good this time in and she’s ex­pected to run well fresh here. On Tues­day morn­ing she came to Moonee Val­ley with Fu­tur­ist and they gal­loped over 800m in 53.36 and 24.37 last 400m. Has a touch of class and looks set for a good prep.

Ri­val TAGREEDA worked nicely with EPIC MO­MENT (Race 7 MV tonight) at Caulfield, dash­ing home last 400m in a slick time of 23.40.

There is not a lot of depth in race 4 over 1000m tonight at the Val­ley. ALASKAN SUN re­sumes her prep here and should get a good run in tran­sit from bar­rier one.

The four-year-old mare had a poke around Moonee Val­ley on Tues­day morn­ing with Miss­cino, they went 1000m in 1.05.02 and 25.61 last 400m. Mon­i­tor mar­ket moves closely. Ei­ther way, she should give you a run for your money.

Keep an eye out on the first starter SWEET DIS­TRAC­TION in the open­ing race tonight over 1000m for twoyear-old fil­lies.

This debu­tant by Snitzel, ab­so­lutely flogged her ri­vals a few weeks ago in trial at Caulfield over 650m, record­ing a time of 40.01.

On Tues­day she went 600m in 39.11 and 23.97 last 400m. Sta­ble know how to churn out two-year-old win­ners, so watch the mar­ket closely.

Back at Caulfield to­mor­row, race 2 — a fil­lies/mares Bench­mark 87 over 1400m — looks the per­fect race on pa­per for Henry Dwyer trained STORMSABREWING.

Rock hard fit and around the money of late, the five-year-old mare gets her chance here to break through for an over­due win.

She wasn’t knocked about on Tues­day morn­ing, work­ing over 1000m in 1.06 and 25.47 last 400m. Nice value each-way se­lec­tion who can take this out if things go her way.

MINA HARKER worked with Ponte Roma (Race 6 MV tonight) over 800m, clock­ing 53.87 and 24.83 last 400m.

At this stage Stu­art Webb will most likely back up GET THE PIC­TURE in race 3 at Pak­en­ham.

The five-year-old geld­ing hit the line nicely last start after be­ing held up mo­men­tar­ily in straight. Thriv­ing work and rac­ing as well as he was in his three­year-old “clas­sic” sea­son. As fit can be for this as­sign­ment and rates on an each-way ba­sis.

Mick Price.
