The Andrew Noblet-trained SPECIAL ALERT has improved with every run since locating to Victoria.
Drops down 1kg on her last start second and rates as some sort of longshot each-way hope in the Benchmark 90 Fitness For Diabetes Plate.
It was just a maintenance gallop on Tuesday morning when she went 1600m in evens and 24.75 for her last 400m.
She is fit and there will be no excuses.
YULONG JANUARY was scratched from the Carbine Club Stakes and will stick to the 1400m of Listed Springtime Stakes (1400m) for three-year-olds.
The colt has had a faultless prep, is fit and doesn’t know how to run a bad race.
On Tuesday morning, he worked 800m in 54.0 and 25.0 for his last 400m.
He’ll be at his peak for this.
MISS ADMIRATION’s last run defied the on pace bias, she managed to run home quite well over concluding stages when others couldn’t.
Expect her be thereabouts in the Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600m) tomorrow.
Tuesday’s work topped her off nicely, going a leisurely 2000m in evens and 25.45 for last 400m split.
WALL OF FIRE worked over 1600m in even time. ALOISIA is on the seven day back-up and up in distance in the Group 2 Matriarch Stakes.
Fitness wise, she’s just about peaking and at her best, she would give this a shake.
She will find touch easier than her last outing in Group 1 company.
Out of excuses for her. Each way.
It was a valiant effort from PRIZED ICON, who chased hard last start and went down by half a length in the Crystal Mile.
Up to 2000m in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes and he’ll be at juicy each-way odds for his admirers.
On Tuesday, he went through paces over 1200m in 1.27.39 and home in 38.0 for his last 600m.
He is fit enough if good enough and his only two starts at Flemington have netted a win in the Group 1 VRC Derby and a three quarter length second Australian Guineas.
An outside each-way hopes from the Maher camp in the Benchmark 80 Grand Handicap (1100m) and SHERRIF
JOHN STONE and LAGERFELD who worked together at the beach during the week, maintaining their fitness levels.
Both will be spot on for this assignment.
