Undefeated 3yo colt Jukebox will be looking to make it 4 from 4 in the Danehill Stakes, 1200m. Cracking race on paper, where he appears to be up there with the best of his generation. Cracking gallop Tuesday morning, striding over 800m, home last 400m a tick on 23s. Outstanding work.
 
Fox Swift worked well this week in the lead up to the Cap D'antibes Stakes for the 3yo fillies. She worked 800m in 52.33 and her last 400m in 23.48. Each way, she'll be cherry ripe on the day.
 
Big ask for Moet Rose. She worked 800m in 54.24 and 24.75 last 400m.
 
Keep an eye out for the Mick price trained Hulme, who'll line up in the Pin 'n' Win Plate, 1400m. Massive rise in class on debut win, however, looks to have a bright future. Worked solidly with Ouyang Feng over 1200m in 1.23.82 and last 400m in 24.05, last 200m in 11.76.
 
Lone Eagle and Mighty Boss partnered up over 1000m, clocking 1.05.71 and 23.80 last 400m.
 
Not sure if Theansermyfriend will contest The Sofitel Stakes or venture to Royal Randwick, however, I suspect he'll be a live hope wherever he steps out. He's looking a treat for the Smerdon yard. Went super on Tuesday morning leading throughout in his trial heat. Spot on!
 
Not a lot between the Caulfield trained aspirants on Tuesday morning, who'll be looking to add the Let's Elope Stakes to their resume. 
 
Swampland wasn't pushed hard, she went 1000m in 1.12.78 and 27.51 last 400m.
 
Oregon's Day worked with Princess Of Queens over 1000m in 1.06.82 and 11.98 last 200m. Flying Jess breezed over 800m in 52.0 and 23.97 last 400m.
 
Berisha can improve 3rd up in The Sofitel Hcp, 1700m. Stuck on well in a hot trial on Tuesday morning, really like the way he went to the line. He's hitting peak fitness and almost ready. He'll start at huge e/w odds and represent value, way overs in my opinion.
 
Annus Mirabilis resumes. Went 1600m in even time and is probably looking for much further. Can sprint well fresh.
