In pea soup conditions, no gallops could be seen or timed, as the winning post was not visible from The Gap.
Tequila Spirit worked with One Of The Best over 1200m. One Of The Best seemed to work well and has been in food form at the recent jump-outs.
Aridity worked 1400m with Coventina Bay. Coventina Bay seems ready to win.
Stablemates, Klaasen and Malo Bik did similar work. They appeared to be working well.
Hi, I’m Nikita seemed to relish the wettish track when galloping 1400m after working around. She will be a strong chance if she gets a rain-affected track Saturday.
From the powerful Sharrock stable Tavi Mac, Waisake, Our Hail Mary, Butler, Sinrahma, Signore Nero, and newcomer Taviattack worked but couldn’t be timed. It would be a brave punter to ignore any of these when assessing field, as the stable is in red hot form.
