Undefeated 3yo Fastnet Rock colt lines up in the H.D.F McNeil Stakes, 1200m, at Group 3 level. Still untapped and headed in the right direction. Worked super on Tuesday morning with Bons Away, expected to go very close here.
 
King's Authority worked over 800m in 54.97 and 24.51 last 400m. Solid first up run from Oregon's Day when resuming. Should prove hard o hold out 2nd up in the Chandler Macleod plate, 1400m. Worked over 1000m in 1.08.77 and 24.51 last 400m.
 
In form Swampland has grown a leg this time in. In it up to her ears here. She went 800m in 54.30, last 400m in 24.30 under a tight grip.
 
Schism better suited back to her own sex here. Solid work from Theanswermyfriend on Tuesday morning, tightening him up nicely, where he'll be second up in the Hocking Stuart Plate, from the car park draw! Went through his paces over 800m, clocking 50.76 and 23.52 last 400m.
 
Emergency Bon's Away was clocked running 800m in 51.76 and a sizzling 22.50 last 400m. 
 
Sydney visitor Le Romain settled in nicely and looks primed to run a bottler of a race in the $1 million dollar Memsie Stakes. Partnered up with Revolving Door over 1000m, stopping the clock at 1.05 and their last 400m in 24.0. 
 
Outsider Charmed Harmony worked 1000m in 1.04.93. Single Gaze went ok in her trial.
 
The Robert Smerdon trained Dulverton is rock hard fit and a live hope in the Heatherlie Stakes, run over 1700m, run at listed level where she gets in on the minimum with 54kg. Restricted to strong pacework this week, stable thrilled with her progress.
 
Divine Mr Artie will represent the McCarthy stable in the Comcater Hcp, run over 1400m. At peak fitness and although up in grade here, he'll run his usual honest race and can weigh in. Tuesday morning he worked over 1000, home last 400m a tick on 27.0 last 400m.
 
Hardham had a nice trial here a week ago and can figure here fresh.
