   Miss Wilson furthered her preparation for an upcoming trip to Australia with another good solo hit out at this morning’s Hastings track session.

   Fast work was confined to the plough, which seemed to be conducive to fast times.

   Miss Wilson worked in from the 1200-metre peg in 1:16.1, running the first 600 metres in 40.4 before clapping on the speed over the last 600 in 35.7. It was excellent work from the big Stratum mare and she was striding out keenly at the finish.

   Trainer John Bary also gave Miss Wilson an exhibition gallop between races at last Thursday’s Hawke’s Bay meeting, where she was timed to run her last 800m on the course proper (dead) in 49.4, the final 600 taking 35.6.

   Bary now intends giving Miss Wilson a barrier trial at Taupo on Wednesday of next week and she is booked on a flight to Brisbane two days later.

   She is heading to Queensland for just one race, that being the Group 1 $A500,000 Tatts Tiara at Doomben on June 23. The 1350-metre event is restricted to fillies and mares and run under weight-for-age conditions. Vinnie Colgan has been booked to ride her over there.

   Thelma, a stablemate of Miss Wilson, was another who reeled off a fast time this morning when she ran a solo 1000m in 60.4, the last 600 in 35.3. She has recorded a second and a third from her last two starts and will contest the 1340-metre maiden at Wanganui this Saturday.

   Fun Seeker, entered for the Maiden 1200 at Awapuni on Thursday, was only given a 600-metre sprint but she also recorded a quick time of 34.9. Rosie Mye3rs has been booked to ride her.

   The Cossack, entered for the Rating 65 race over 2040m at Wanganui on Saturday, ran a solo 1200m in 1:18, the first 600 in 40.6 and the last 600 in 39.4. He was a last start winner over 1600m at Tauherenikau.

   A number of other horses were restricted to just pacework, including the well performed mare Savvy Dreams, who is back in work with trainers Guy Lowry and Grant Cullen. She looks to have done very well during her spell and was underwent two easy rounds at half-pace on the plough.
