   Sheer Elegance, who will be stepped up in distance at Awapuni this Friday, worked strongly on her own at this morning’s Hastings track session.

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

   Sheer Elegance worked on her own over 1200m in 1:19, running the first 600 in an easy 41.8 before quickening over the last 600 in 37.4. The big Civics mare was a last start fifth over 1600m at Hastings and will be stepped up to 2100m in a Rating 65 race at Awapuni.

   Her stablemates One Prize One Goal and Stradivarius worked together over 1000m in 1:06.4, the last 600 in 37.6. They are also entered for Awapuni on Friday, with apprentice Temyia Taiaroa booked to ride One Prize One Goal in the Rating 72 1400 and Leah Hemi on Stradivarius in the open 1200.

   Yossarian, the other Lee Somervell-trained runner at Awapuni, ran a solo 800m in 52.9, the last 600 in 37.9 and he lines up in the Rating 65 race over 1550m.

   Me, one of several horses the Lowry/Cullen stable will be taking up to the Poverty Bay meeting on Sunday week, worked over 600m on her own and was timed to come home the last 400m in 26.2.

   Hazel’s Girl, another in the Lowry/Cullen stable, ran an easy 800m in 58, the last 600 in 43.4 while a Glass Harmonium three-year-old ran an easy 600m in 40.1.
