Last week’s Levin jumpout winner Crystal Bubble and stablemate Garment, both trained by Lydia Pickford, worked in fine style together at Awapuni this morning.
All fast work took place on the plough (good), where Crystal Bubble and Garment were paired over 1000m in 1:5.5, coming the final 800m in 49.5, the last 600 in 37 even. They are building nicely for winter campaigns.
Not to be denied, That’s Funny and Thewayyoumademe, two more from that barn, skipped over 1000m in 1:7.1, finishing with 800m in 50.8, the last 600 in 37.8.
Lincoln Green, who scored on debut recently, and Platinum Appeal were timed to run 1000m in 1:7.2, the last 600 in 37.9. Platinum Appeal has been off the scene since last winter, but resumes in the three-year-old maiden over 1200m at Feilding on Thursday.
Stunning (r65 2200m) and Fictitious (r72 mile), two more heading to the Feilding meeting, covered 800m in 51.1; the last 600 in 37.8. The blinkers go on Fictitious.
Miss Oahu (r72 1200m), worked alone over 1000m in 1:12.6, sprinting home the last 600 in 37.6, and Saturday’s Hawke’s Bay rivals Hank Moody and Amorata (r72 2200m) went together more evenly in 1:7.9 and 38.6.
Feilding runners Lincoln Sky (r65 1400m) and Lincoln Hanover (mdn 3yo 1200m) ran 800m in 51.7, the last 600 in 38.7.
Lovetokeephim and a Maurice O’Brien-trained Thewayyouare gelding were at a solid clip early over 1200m, being timed from the 1000m in 1:4.6, easing to complete the last 600 in 39.9.
Feilding acceptor Bella Margarita (r65 2200m) worked on her own over 1000m in 1:8.2, the last 600 in 39.5, while Cog Knish (mdn 1400m) and Du’blues (r65 1400m) were on terms over the same distance in 1:9.1 and 39.8.
Prosecco (r72 mile) and Prince Turbo (r65 1400m) matched strides over 800m in a quiet 55.3, the last 600 in 40.4.
