Hastings Trackwork 7 Nov 2017

The stablemates Keilib and Matovani reeled off a fast 1000-metre gallop in a reasonably quiet session at the Hastings track this morning.

   Fast work was confined to the plough, which provided good footing.

   A penetrometer reading was taken on the course proper during the session and came up as a dead-4 after 20 millimetres of irrigation yesterday.

   Keilib and Matovani worked in from the 1200-metre peg and clapped on the pace over the last 1000 metres in 1:2.7, the final 600 in 36.8. Both horses are likely starters at next Sunday’s Hawke’s Bay meeting.

   Dare To Rock, who is likely to kick off a fresh campaign in the Maiden 1300 at Hastings on Sunday, clocked 37.1 and 38.4 for two 600-metre sprints while Revolution ended his work with a sharp 600-metre sprint in 36.1.

   Deb was another given two 600-metre runs on her own. She went very easily over the first one in 43.3 and quickened slightly over the second one in 39. She is a likely starter in the Maiden 1200 at Sunday’s Hawke’s Bay meeting.

   A Per Incanto-Mal four-year-old gelding in the Lowry/Cullen stable worked in at three-quarter pace from the 1000-metre peg and quickened over the last 600 metres in 37.9.
