Hastings Trackwork - Tuesday 19 July
John Jenkins | July 19, 2022

No Rock No Pop, who heads to Rotorua this Saturday for the $35,000 Open 1215m race, worked well on her own at Tuesday’s Hastings track session.

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

No Rock No Pop worked in from the 1000m peg in 1:02.4, running the first 400m in 24.3 before coming home the last 600 in 38.1. She found track conditions far too heavy for her liking when finishing a distant fifth over 1200m at Hastings on July 2. Trudy Thornton has been booked o ride her on Saturday.

No Time To Jazz was timed to run 800m on her own in 48.4, the last 600 in 36. She may resume in a Rating 75 race over 1400m at Woodville on August 12, providing the track is not too heavy.

Serengeti, who lines up in the maiden 1650m race at Hastings this Thursday, hit out strongly when sprinting 600m in 37.5 while his stablemate Estefania was given a much easier assignment when running 600m in 41.5. She is also down to start at Hastings.

New Orleans Jazz worked in from the 800m peg and was timed to run the last 600 in 41.4 while Briar, another entered for the maiden 1650m race at Hastings, was given an easy 600m in 45.8.

Master Brewer had co-trainer Mick Brown aboard when running a solo 1000m in 1:16, the last 600 in 42.9. He looks in good order and should be very competitive in the maiden 1200m race at Hastings. Apprentice Ashvin Mudhoo has the mount and will claim a 2kg allowance.

Written Up and Celtic Jazz, two members of Dean Howard’s stable down to start at Hastings on Thursday, worked together over 800m in 51.9, the last 600 in 38.3 while a Darci Brahma two-year-old and a Mongolian Khan three-year-old, both in the McKenzie/Bassett stable, worked in at three-quarter pace from the 800m peg, running the last 600 in 43.4.
