Melbourne Column by George Lucas 09/11/17


Looks a perfect race on paper for the progressive 3yo daughter of Fastnet Rock, Palazzo Vecchio, Friday night in the Sawdust And Shavings MB64, 1600m. trained on nicely since breaking her maiden 2nd up. Tuesday morning she worked over  1200m in evens and 24.43 last 400m, on the bit. Should run well again.
Freshen up and huge drop in class Friday night for Heavenly Descent, in the Procon Developments BM78, 1400m. Nice work Tuesday without being pushed aty any stage. Strode over 1000m in 1.07.21 and 12.82 last 400m. Can easily measure up here against this lot.
Both Price horses should be thereabouts in Sensis Digital Trophy, run over 1400m last day of the Flemington Carnival. Duke Of Brunswick worked over 1000m in 1.05.10, last 400m in 25.13. Bassett went 1000m in 1.06.18 and 24.29 last 400m. Hard to split them, slight fitness edge to Bassett over his barn mate.
Orient Line worked home his last 800m in 51.97 and 24.27 last 400m split.
The John Moloney trained Flying Jess will represent good value in the Matriarch Stakes, Group 2, run over 2000m. Worked ¾ pace Tuesday morning on the “A Sand” track. Topping her off beautifully for this. High class mare on her day and if things go her way, she’ll be steaming home late.
Huge class rise for Cedar Grande. She worked 1000m in 1.05 and 23.90 last 400m. 
The Andrew Noblet trained Super Cash will have her work cut out for her in the Darley Classic Group 1 Sprint, 1200m. Can’t fault her performances this time in. She’s as fit as a fiddle and holding her condition very well at Caulfield. Galloped on Saturday morning over 1000m, home last 400m a tick on 25.0. Could sneak into the placings at odds.
The Robert Smerdon trained Tezlah is going through his grades nicely and this’ll be his 4th run in his initial prep in the Emirates Airline Hcp.  On the 7 day back up, has the miles in his legs and winning form is good form. Try him on both totes as he should be at an each way quote.
