Track conditions presented excellent after recent rain, with gallops on the inside rail, some good times were recorded.
Marlow Bik and Silver Lady impressed over 1000m, the last 600 in a brisk 35.12. Marlow Bik with Allan Sharrock shows promise and could debut finals day Wellington.
Malibu Miss, who lines up in the R65 1600 at Wellington impressed over 1200, running the last 600 in 36.85. The mare was in need of her last run, and strips a lot fitter for this Saturday.
Last start winner, Rhiza, for Miranda Dravitzski, worked within herself over 1000m, the last 600m in 38.50. Rhiza starts in the SP 1400 at Wellington.
Eyes Wide Open, by Mastercraftsman, worked strongly over 1000m, the last 600 in 36.55. Is likely to debut at Woodville.
Catwomandu and Isola Bella turned on the speed over 1000m, finishing to the line strongly, last 600 in 35.50. Both are nominated for Te Rapa Sunday.
Woodville Cup contender, King Nero, galloped strongly from the 1200m to the finishing line, the last 600 in 36.16. King Nero looks particularly well at present.
One of the early favourites for the Auckland Cup, Pentathlon, worked with High In Demand, over 1000m, the last 600m in 36.15. Pentathlon looks well to resume later this month.
Allmosta and Cottoneva galloped in impressive fashion over 1000m, with the last 600 in 35.25. Cottoneva took great benefit from his debut run at New Plymouth and will strip a fitter horse next start.
Effectav, who may be nominated for the Woodville Cup, and Battle Kat worked together over 1000m, running the last 600m in 36.90 seconds.
An All Too Hard with Warren Bolton, and Ze One worked strongly over 1000m, the last 600 in 36.80. Ze One is likely to resume on the third day at Wellington.
Vincent and a Street Sense with Ilone Kelly worked away from the 1000m, the 600 in 37.85. Vincent, who debuted in New Plymouth, is likely to start on the third day at Wellington.
Dynamite Lucy looks to have taken no harm from her slashing effort of last Saturday when working quietly on the sand. The mare returns to Wellington for the Summer Cup 2400m.
