August 12, 2021

On the all-weather track, the recent trial winner was not after time over 600m in 41. She returned an excellent gallop Tuesday morning. She showed plenty of ability last campaign and a winning return would not surprise.


SHERWOOD FOREST, who won a trial at Cambridge last week, worked solo over a comfortable 1200m in 1:25.3, the last 600m in 39.9. He begins a fresh campaign in a handy line up at Te Rapa and although he will improve with the run, he should be most competitive .


TELEKINETIC came to the end of 800m in 55.4, the final 600m in 39.9.


DANCE ‘N’ SING was timed 600m in 38.3. CATALYST was in good form over 1000m in 1:6.3, finishing off in 37. He ran nicely in a recent local trial. He is due to trial at Te Rapa before his long awaited return to racing.


DANGER STRYKES ran the last 600m of 800m in 38.6. LONDON BOUND was sent 1000m at three- quarter pace, quickening in from the 600m in 38.7.


LONHRO|OKAHU BAY completed 1000m in 1:7.4 and 38.1. RIVER RUN worked in from the 600m in 37.8.


WILLY AWAY, who will race next Wednesday at Cambridge, was timed from 800m in 54.3.


OH NO NO NO worked well over 1000m in 1:7.5, coming home in 38. HABANA and EL ROCA|ROYAL SHOW left 1000m behind in 1:7.8 sprinting the last 600m in 36.8.


GALLARDO was given an easy 600m in 41.8. DIVINE DIVE strode 800m in 54.2. LA CASA followed in a similar time.


TUTUKAKA was timed from the 600m in 40.1. ASTRADEEL and FLAG HUNTER were together throughout 1000m, completing the final 600m in 37.1.


Galloping on a heavy No.2 grass Wednesday morning, CHEVAL PROMETTEUR was in outstanding form over 1200m in 1:17.9, dashing the last 600m in 36.8. He will be hard to beat at Te Rapa.


On the all-weather track PORTOFINO and MERITABLE ran 1000m in 1:8.4 and 38.8. TURN THE ACE and REGAL LION were timed 600m in 37.9.


INTROVERT and LONG GAME came to the end of 800m in 53. SHEZDELICIOUS cut out 800m in 53.6 and 39.
