Saturday, Race 4 – Close Image
Close Image has been working up a storm for Sylvain Pion. Her last five works have been under a minute. Her work back on April 18 featured splits of :23.20, :34.60, :46.1, 59.20, out in 1:13.20. All of her works have been on the training track. She now runs on turf and has good turf form.
Saturday, Race 5 – This Round’s Mine
This Round’s Mine has been working in company recently for Catherine Day-Phillips. The work on May 18 was in company with Killag Kate in :47.80 breezing – that is a good frame of reference.
Saturday, Race 6 – Pearl Heist
Pearl Heist worked for Darwin Banach worked on June 6 in :46 flat with ease. She could have even gone quicker. She has not lost a race yet (two-for-two) and will be trying the turf for the first time, but looks racing fit.
Saturday, Race 8 – Intanga Rose
Intanga Rose worked on June 2 for Sid Attard in a 1:00.2, out in 1:12.80, with Da Silva aboard. This looked like her best work this year. She will have first-time Lasix – her trainer is hitting at 67 per cent with this angle and may go gate-to-wire.
