Top class 3yo colt Jukebox resumes in the Sir John Monash Stakes, run at Group 3 level over 1100m. Nice trial win on the 07/05th at Cranbourne. Also won his Tuesday morning trial at Caulfied a fortnight ago in comfortable fashion. Tuesday morning he worked with Mask Of Time (race 9 on the card) over 800m in 51.0 and 23.27 last 400m.  2 from 3 at the track, 2 from 2 at the distance and 2 from 2 first up, all point to him running a cracking race here! C Williams on board also a huge plus. 
 
Soul Star was the best of the workers on Tuesday morning who are lining up in the Ladbrokes Back Yourself Hcp, 1200m. She was quite impressive when striding over 8oom in 49.55 and a slick 22.90 last 400m. Went to the line untested and with plenty in hand last start, rates as an each way hope here. Blondie worked 800m in 51.97 and 24.53 last 400m. Miss Norway 800m in 53.25 and 25.0. Magnesium Rose went 100m in 1.08 and 37.0 last 600m. Very even race on paper.
 
Classy conveyance Netherfield resumes for the Price stable in the Ladbrokes Multiverse Hcp, 1400m. Flies fresh and has been in work a while now at Caulfield and looks forward enough to run a race here 1st up. Worked with High Ratio on Tuesday morning in around even time, home last 400m in 23.45, on the bit. He is an emergency on the day, black book him if he’s scratched.
 
91 weeks between drinks for Murt The Flirt, who worked 800m in evens and 24.51 last 400m. Take him on trust!
 
Hard not to be impressed with Masculino this time in. He’s been racing in devastating form and will be looking to make it 3 on the trot in the Ladbrokes Cash In Hcp, 2000m. partnered up with the promising Pierro gelding Borella (also engaged in this) over 1600m on Tuesday morning, clocking 1.57.59 and 23.06 last 400m, excellent work by the pair. 
 
In form Under Oath was restricted to the treadmill this week. He’s got plenty of miles in his legs and racing in great heart, shouldn’t be underestimated here. 
 
Fanciful Toff worked with Charlie’s World over 1000m in 1.08.25 and 23.50 last 400m. 
 
Big rise in class for the C Maher trained Reserve Street, however, he looks to be a horse of considerable talent, warranting a crack at Saturday grade. He’ll face the starter in the 1400m Ladbrokes Info Hub hcp for the 3yo’s. Worked keenly on Tuesday morning, bowling over his last 800m in 49.92 and 23.02 last 400m. 
 
Another leading fancy, Usain Bowler, went 1000m in 1.05.48 and 23.76 last 400m. 
 
Each way again for the ever consistent Rib Eye, who’ll drop down to 54kg in the Ladbrokes odds Boost Hcp, 1700m at BM90 level. Can’t fault him this prep, done everything right bar winning. Tuesday morning he worked over 100om in 1.09.71 and his last 400m home in 25.51. Appeals for the multiples.
