   Tuigirl, a likely starter at Otaki on Sunday, worked well in company at this morning’s Hastings track session.

   Fast work was confined to the plough, which provided good footing after four millimetres of rain over night.

   Tuigirl worked with Mohaka from the 1000m peg and were timed to run their last 800m in 54 and the final 400 in 24s.

   Tuigirl was an unlucky last start sixth over 1600m on the last day of the Hawke’s Bay spring carnival and will be entered for the Rating 65 Fillies & Mares 1600 at Otaki on Sunday.

   Mohaka, who was a close last start second, is being prepared for the Wellington meeting on October 26.

   Estefania, preparing for the Rating 65 race over 1950m at Rotorua on Saturday, ended her work this morning with a sprint up the straight. She was not far away when sixth over 1600m at Te Rapa last start and is a past winner on the Rotorua track. Any rain will help her chances.

   Time honours for the morning went to Maria D’Or and Zappeur, two horses in Patrick Campbell’s stable, who worked together over 1000m in 1:3.8, the last 600 in 36.4.

  Uncle Bro, entered for the Rating 65 1600 at Waipukurau on Thursday, had an easy workout on his own over 1000m in 1:10.6, the last 600 in 39.9.

   Jonny Russ, another entered for Waipukurau, sprinted 600m on his own in 36.9 while a Star Elipse and a Showcasing three-year-old filly clocked 1:13.1 for 1000m, the last 600 in 40.1.

   An Atlante-Springvale Lass three-year-old gelding and a Per Incanto-Queen Ali three-year-old gelding clocked 54.9 for 800m, the last 600 in 39.5. They are both in the Lowry/Cullen stable.

   Resolution and a Fastnet Rock four-year-old gelding worked together over a round on the plough and were timed to run home he last 1000m in 1:17.4.
