No Rock No Pop showed she has trained on the right way since winning on her home track last Wednesday when recording a good solo gallop at this morning’s Hastings track session.
Fast work was confined to the plough which provided good footing.
No Rock No Pop worked in at three-quarter pace from the 1200-metre peg and was let sprint home the last 600m. She recorded 1:18.7 for the full distance, the first 600 in 41.6 and the last 600 in an excellent 37.1.
The Rock ‘N’ Pop filly is building a consistent record, with a win and three minor placings from her last four starts, and will now head to Wanganui this Saturday for a $27,500 Rating 74 race over 1400m. Mereana Hudson has been booked to ride her.
Mini Kay, a Nadeem four-year-old mare in Patrick Campbell’s stable, worked over 800m on her own in 53.5, the last 600 in 39.7. She finished second in a 1200m jumpout at Hastings last Thursday.
An Alamosa four-year-old gelding trained by Fred Pratt ended his work with 600m in 39.8 while a Savabeel-Misspro O’Reilly three-year-old gelding in the Lowry/Cullen stable ran an easy 600m in 43.2.
One Dream One Soul ended her work with 600m in 40.3 and looked to be striding out well at the finish. She is a two-year-old full-sister to the five race winner One Prize One Goal and impressed when winning a 750m jumpout at Hastings last Thursday. She is now likely to head to next Tuesday’s Otaki trials.
Beaumonde ran an easy 600m in 42.1 and is a Proisir three-old filly being prepared by John and James Bridge.
A Tarzino two-year-old filly and No Time To Jazz worked together over 600m in 42.6 while an Ekraar three-year-old gelding in Fred Pratt’s stable worked in at three-quarter pace from the 1200m peg and ran home the last 600m in 43.6.
Countess Conti, a winner over 1200m at last week’s Hastings jumpouts, was kept to just three-quarter pace in her work and ran the last 600m in 45.1.
