Trackwork at New Plymouth Raceway
Tuesday 31st May

After significant recent rain the track was very heavy for the session & times were very slow with few gallops breaking 40s for the last 600.
Suntribute & Looxlikeapro ran 1200m finishing attractively the last 600m in 39.1. This was an excellent gallop.
Time honours of the morning went to Darci La Bella & Sophmaze who ran a strong 1000m, home in 38.8.
Jumpers’ from the Wheeler Stable ran 1600m with Quaff & Chief Sequoiah fastest home in 43.3. Shocking Bill & Songsungblu took 44.1. All four may go to Hawke’s Bay.

Play a Part & Ladies Man ran an even 1000m the last 600 in 39.9. This was a sound effort.
