IRISH LEGACY looks set to justify her favouritism for Saturday’s Wellington Guineas after a brilliant final gallop.

On the plough, IRISH LEGACY kept up a decent clip from the 1000m sprinting the last 600m in 36.9. She was very unlucky in the Mufhasa Stakes after a slow start and being hampered at a vital stage in the straight.

POSITIVITY, MOONLIGHT MAGIC and WREN who represent the Forsman stable in Saturday’s New Zealand Oaks had separate gallops. 

POSITIVITY, a strong winner at her last start, left her 1200m at three quarter pace quickening over the last 600m in 38.7.

MOONLIGHT MAGIC came in from the 1000m in 1.10, the final 600m in 39.5 and WREN returned 1.9.4 and 39.3.

MUSTANG VALLEY should race well in a fresh state at Tauranga. 

She came in from the 1000m in 1.8.9 and 37.3. She won her recent trial nicely 

Any rain would enhance her prospects. 

Her stablemate and race rival SAINT BATHENS ran 1000m in 1.8.4, sprinting the concluding 600m in 38.3.

LANIKAI worked well over a solo 1400m the 1200m in 1.19, sprinting the last 600m in 37.6. ETHEREAL STAR was clocked from the 800m in 56.3 the 600m in 41.
