Galloping on a slow No.2 grass, RUN TO PERFECTION, although not after time, travelled nicely throughout 1000m in 1:9.4, coming in from the 600m in 41.3. His Tuesday work was impressive and he should justify his favouritism for the Open 1400m.
CURIOUS GEORGE shaded UNACCEPTABLE at the completion of 1000m in 1:8.3, sprinting the last 600m in 38.9. The stablemates are race rivals at Ellerslie.
PACKING JOY did her weekend prospects no harm with nice work over 800m, the final 600m in 41.
ILLUMINATION worked in from the 600m in 43.2. OSELETA was timed the last 600m of 800m in 41.6. APPELLANT strode an easy 600m in 44.6.
A TAVISTOCK and a ZED from Sam Logan's barn matched strides over 800m, the last 600m in 39.1.
MEKELLE was sent 800m run in 54.6 and 41.
Working on the all-weather track, SPIRIT OF BAZ and ANDUIN both looked in good shape for Ellerslie with a nice gallop over 1200m in 1:22.5, finishing with 600m in 37.3.
POTOSI and HOT PINX were in excellent form from the 1000m run in 1:6.2, sprinting home in 37.4.
Convincing last start winner FUNTONIC had MASTERCARD for a companion over 1000m, clocked in 1:7.7, the last 600m in 37.8.
PACORUS followed nice Tuesday work with another good gallop over 1600m, the last 1000m in 1:8.3, the 600m in 38.5. The ten race winner has had the benefit of two starts this time in and could be one for odds this weekend.
KYA KHOOB LAGTI HO caught the eye with good solo work over 800m in 51, sprinting the last 600m in 36.1. Looks a big chance at Ellerslie on Monday.
SIDE EYE left 1000m behind in 1:7.8 and 38.9.
