ARAMAYO from the James Cum­mings sta­ble showed a good turn of foot when win­ning the Spring Stakes over 1600m at New­cas­tle re­cently and has trained on well since.

The three-year-old son of Poet’s Voice looked a happy horse Sat­ur­day morn­ing when he worked solo on the Pro Ride over 1200m in 1.25.16 with his fi­nal 400m in 25.17 and last 200m 12.1.

He went to Godol­phin’s Agnes Banks (Hawkes­bury) train­ing fa­cil­ity on Tues­day for his fi­nal piece of work which sat­is­fied his trainer and I have no doubt that he will have no trou­ble run­ning out a strong 2000m in the Group 1 Spring Cham­pion Stakes at Royal Rand­wick to­mor­row.

FIERCE IM­PACT had to go back from a sticky gate when he was first-up over 1400m at Rose­hill fort­night back and did a good job to run on for se­cond af­ter giv­ing away a big start.

Trainer Matthew Smith has been happy with the way he came through the run and on Tues­day morn­ing he gal­loped with a mate on the Course Proper over 1400m in 1.39.1, his fi­nal 400m in 26.12 and last 200m in 11.66 forg­ing clear of his part­ner on the line.

He was able to win se­cond-up last time in and he has a great chance in race five to­mor­row.

Stable­mate AQUA D’IVINA is a classy mare who has had set­back af­ter set­back through­out her short ca­reer so hope­fully ev­ery­thing goes well for this prepa­ra­tion as she heads to­wards the Ma­tri­arch Stakes on the last day of Cup Week at Flem­ing­ton.

She has been pro­gress­ing well since her first-up se­cond and last Sat­ur­day morn­ing she pro­duced a good piece of work on the Course Proper over 1400m in 1.35.68 with her fi­nal 400m in 23.29 and last 200m 11.51.

She runs next Wed­nes­day at War­wick Farm over 1600m and will prove hard to beat.

TOP STRIKER has been up for a while now but he con­tin­ues to work well and on Tues­day he gal­loped on the Pro Ride over 1000m in 1.04.42 with his fi­nal 400m in 22.84 and last 200m 11.43.

Trainer Greg Hick­man is due for a change of luck and it may come his way in the last race to­mor­row.
