Sol De Otono worked well on her own at this morning’s Hastings trackwork session.

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

Sol De Otono worked in from the 1400m peg and was timed to run home the last 100m in 1:23.1 She was kept to just three-quarter pace for the first half of the workout but then increased the speed over the final 600 in 38.6.

The daughter of The Autumn Sun recorded a good last start second over 2050m at Tauherenikau and holds a nomination for this Saturday’s Group 1 New Zealand Oaks (2400m).

Speed Dial worked early in the session and was restricted to just three-quarter pace over 800m, running home the last 600 in 44.5. She is a Time Test three-year-old who also recorded a good last start second at Tauherenikau.

Call Me Jack worked on his own over 1000m in 1:13.6, the last 600 in 41.3. He is due to go back to the Kevin Myers stable within the next week, to be prepared for another jumping campaign.

It’s Amelia stretched out nicely over 800m in 56, the last 600 in 41.8. She is an Eminent filly who showed plenty of promise earlier this season, with a last start second over 1100m at Taupo in December.

Eyegeegee and Drawbridge worked together over 1000m in 1:11.4, the last 600 in 42 while Flashlight ran a solo 1000m in 1:17.4, the last 600 in 42.3.

Shez Oohlahlah and an Ocean Park-Mandalong Belle two-year-old gelding worked together over 600m in 42. Shez Oohlahlah is another who hasn’t raced since December while the Ocean Park two-year-old is a half-brother to Fancy Like Lass.

Time To Star was keen to go fast in the early stages of her 800m workout in 56.2, coming home the last 600 in 42.6. She is a half-sister to the well performed Jimmysstar.
