COURSE PROPER, TRACK GOOD
THE TOP PERFORMANCES
Ht 2. LADY JIVAGO (JEFF ENGLEBRECHT)
Took up the running in a fairly slowly run heat and broke away with the runner-up Mighty Lucky as they turned for home. She was allowed coast to the line for a strong win. Looks suited to midweek benchmarks on this effort.
Ht 4. OUR RENAISSANCE (JASON DEAMER)
Jumped smartly and parked outside the leader and despite being hard held was too good in the run to the post. Unfortunately bled first-up last preparation after an outstanding trial, has to be taken on trust but looked very good here.
Ht 4. BROOK ROAD (KRIS LEES)
Was allowed drift a long way off the pace to settle a distant fourth and wasn’t set any sort of task but still made ground nicely to the post. Ticking over nicely after a close second when resuming a few weeks back and should find something suitable during the Championships.
Ht 5. VANDERKAMP (KRIS LEES)
Settled rearward in this heat but came home strongly without pressure to finish in third spot, although wanting to hang in a little. Was a winner on debut and then jumped sharply to a Class 3 when narrowly beaten in December when favourite. Looks promising.
