My Tommy, who could resume racing at Trentham this Saturday, took the time honours in a reasonably quiet session at the Hastings track this morning.
There was little in the way of fast work, which was confined to the plough (soft).
My Tommy worked in from the 1000m peg on his own in 1:07.5, running the first 400m in 29 before coming home the last 600 in 38.5. The Towkay eight-year-old has not raced since October last year but won a recent 1000m jumpout at Hastings and trainer Tim Symes said he may enter him for the Rating 65 race over 1400m at Saturday’s Wellington meeting.
Imperial Party, another likely runner at Trentham, worked at three-quarter pace over 600m with trainer Patrick Campbell saying the horse would have a more testing workout on Wednesday.
Freebee, who could make her race debut in the two-year-old race at Trentham, worked with a Reliable Man-Lichen Moss three-year-old filly over 1000m in 1:11, the last 600 in 40.3. Freebee is a filly by Rageese in the Lowry/Cullen stable.
Sheezacatch, back in full work after a break, was given an easy workout over 800m in 55.5, the last 600 in 41.4 while stablemate Bellesgirl clocked 59 for the same distance, the last 600 in 44.9.
One Prize One Goal, in his first run along since having a spell, ran an easy 800m in 58.5, the last 600 in 41.8 while Kuasa Kuda ended his work with 600m in 41.7.
A Super Easy-Flare three-year-old gelding and a Darci Brahma-Stepping Out two-year-old filly, both in the Lowry/Cullen stable, worked in at three-quarter ace from the 800m peg, running the last 600m in 44.9.
