   In-form four-year-old Satu Lagi turned in a nice controlled gallop at the Hastings track this morning in preparation for Saturday’s Wellington meeting.

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

   Satu Lagi worked on his own over 800m in 54.7, the last 600 in 38.9 and looked to be hitting out nicely at the finish. The Per Incanto gelding deserves another win after a third and two seconds from his last three starts and will line up in the Rating 82 event over 1400m at Trentham.

   Trainer Patrick Campbell has engaged promising apprentice Chelsea Burdan for the horse to make use of her 3kg claim.

   Hunta Pence, another from the Campbell stable entered for Trentham on Saturday, was restricted to just two rounds of half-pace and was to have his final strong hit out on the Wednesday. He is entered for the Group 3 Trentham Stakes (2100m) on Saturday with Samantha Collett booked to ride him.

   Red Sunday worked in from the 1000m peg on his own and was timed to run the last 600 in 40.9 while Jonny Russ was restricted to just three rounds of half-pace. He scored another all the way win at Hastings on New Year’s Day and is unlikely to race again until the Hawke’s Bay meeting on January 29.

   Ivory Madonna underwent two 600m runs, the second one in 39.7s. She is a Jimmy Choux three-year-old filly trained by Steven Carey and finished fifth on debut at Hastings on New Year’s Day.

   A Darci Brahma-Stepping Out three-year-old and one by Super Easy, both in the Lowry/Cullen stable, ran an easy 600m in 40.3 while Flautino finished her work off with 600m in 43.7.

   Kaipawe had co-trainer Mick Brown aboard when running 600m in 41.8 while a Reliable Man two-year-old trained by Anita Gardner was only let stride out over the last 400m when running 600m in 44.9.
