Fiesta out to celebrate in Silver Shadow
FIESTA resumes from a spell in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) tomorrow with good winning prospects.
Her latest barrier trial over 900m at Rosehill Gardens on August 1 was pleasing when a length second behind stablemate Performer under Kerrin McEvoy who takes this ride tomorrow.
Her work, when required is always great, while on Tuesday morning she was given an easy time with a slow canter over two laps on the B Grass and on Thursday morning, she worked over 1000m in 1.14.00 with her last 400m a restrained 29.00.
I AM COLDPLAY has her first start for Chris Waller in tomorrow’s Group 3 Toy Show Quality and looks to be ready for a first-up win.
Her two barrier trails have been good, the latest at Rosehill on August 7 when finishing 3.2-len behind Nettoyer when unextended to the line.
Her work was to the point on Tuesday morning running 1000m in 1.09.40 with her last 400m 24.80 on the Inside Grass, 9m out.
It was perfect work and has the services of Hugh Bowman.
WINX will make it 26 straight wins tomorrow in the race names in her honour, the Group 1 Winx Stakes (formally the Warwick Stakes).
Her latest trial at Rosehill on August 7, when a length third behind Alizee, was the best she has ever trialled and is a great indication of just how well she is going.
On Thursday morning, she was given a solid piece of pacework under Bowman who clicked her up the last 600m which has topped her off beautifully for tomorrow.
D’ARGENTO also resumed in the Wins Stakes and while I can’t see him beating champion mare, he is capable of filling a minor placing but more importantly, it will pay to follow this bloke through the Spring.
His latest barrier trial was a fourth behind Alizee and was alongside Winx going across the line.
James McDonald rode the four-year-old in that trial and was onboard again on Tuesday morning when he worked with stablemate Kaonic over 1000m in 1.07.70 with their last 200m 12.20 which was top class work from the pair.
KAONIC returned a spell to win quite well at Randwick on July 21 where he defeated Travencore in class record time.
Chris Waller gave the son of Savabeel plenty of time to get over the run and he heads to Randwick tomorrow with a strong chance again in the final race, the Benchmark 89 (1400m)
His work on the Course Proper Tuesday with Kaonic was best of the morning.
