Asterius shapes up as the star of the show

The Sportsman Weekend - - The Trackwork Winners - JOHN MOC

ASTERIUS has now had two runs from a break and his last start third to Re­flec­tiv­ity when beaten neck was a good ef­fort from the grey.

He came from sev­enth at the 400m and was still mak­ing ground to the post.

The Se­bring four-year-old should prove hard to beat to­mor­row at Royal Rand­wick for Chris Waller as his work has im­proved.

On Tues­day (Christ­mas Day), Asterius was timed over 1000m on the In­side Grass with sta­ble­mate New Uni­verse run­ning 1.10.70, last 400m in 24.40.

The fi­nal 200m from the pair a good 12.00 was a best of the morn­ing ef­fort from Asterius who is sure to run well in ATC Hy­land Box­ing Day Sale Hand­i­cap (1800m). SO YOU WIN al­ways seems to get me in and his last start fifth to Tip Top at Head­quar­ters sec­ond-up was more than okay and he will run in the same race as his sta­ble­mate Asterius to­mor­row.

So You Win worked with Satono Rasen last Satur­day and that horse ran a very good race to be run­ner-up in the Group 3 ATC Sum­mer Cup on Wed­nes­day.

They worked over 1000m with So You Win com­ing home in 24.90 which was slightly quicker than the im­port.

He is sure to run well to­mor­row. The afore­men­tioned

NEW UNI­VERSE made up good ground last start at Rose­hill Gar­dens on De­cem­ber 8 com­ing from tenth the 400m to be beaten two and three-quar­ter lengths by Irithea who walked to the line.

New Uni­verse should be ready af­ter four runs this prepa­ra­tion for Chris Waller who has the New Zealand im­port in ATC Events by ATC Hand­i­cap (1400m) at Rand­wick.

His work with Asterius was an im­proved gal­lop run­ning 1.10.70 for the

1000m with a fi­nal 200m in 12.00 which was the best last fur­long on morn­ing and that work says he has im­proved.

GRE­SHAM’S runs this cam­paign have been good with his last start third to Penske on a Soft 7 at Rand­wick beaten un­der a length a very pleas­ing ef­fort from the Se­bring four-year-old.

He is to run in the ATC TAB Re­wards Hand­i­cap (1600m) for Chris Waller and his work with So You Win on Tues­day on the In­side Grass who pass­able when the pair ran 1.09.0 for 1000m and a fi­nal 200m in 12.70 was okay.

ARANCINI is down to run in the ATC Vale John Marshall Hand­i­cap (1400m) where he will be hav­ing his third run back from a break.

His last start sixth when beaten three and a quar­ter lengths by Dis­cus­sions was okay. He de­serves an­other chance to­mor­row.

Asterius.
