Fi­esta out to cel­e­brate in Sil­ver Shadow

The Sportsman Weekend - - The Trackwork Winners - JOHN MOC

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.
