Yin Dragon continues to work solidly and was responsible for another good time at Awapuni this morning.Fast work took place on the heavy No 1 grass and on the plough (good).
Yin Dragon used the No 1 grass and, working alone, reeled off 800m in 50.7, the last 600 in 37.8. The rising nine-year-old has had three races in a new campaign and could strike top form at any time.Thursday's Hawke's Bay runners Lincoln Hills (r65 1200m) and Etoile D'Amour were paired over 800m in 51.6, the last 600 in 39 even. A Foxton trial winner last month, Etoile D'Amour was unplaced on debut, but looks a huge improver.Lincoln Bay (r65 1650m) and Platinum Edition covered 800m in 54.8, the last 600 in 39.7, while King Cougar and Son Of Surf came up with 53.5 and 40 even. Itsagem and Manhattan Street posted 53.6 and 40.2.Kotahi and Platinum Volos put the pace on early over 800m in 53.2, the last 600 in 41.1. Last-start two-year-old winner Atenartin, trained by Matthew Eales, and a Raise The Flag filly with David Hayes went 800m in 58 even, the last 600 in 42.3, and Veracious, in at Hawke's Bay (r65 1650m), was kept to 59.1 and 42.7.Top jumper Upper Cut, who is rising 12, worked over 1200m, being timed his final 1000m in 1.13.1, the last 600 in 43.6.
On the plough, an Iffraaj filly and a Pentire gelding, both with Lisa Latta, skipped over 800m in 51.1, the last 600 in 36.6, while That's Funny and Garment matched strides over 1000m in 1.7.6, the last 600 in 37.6.Cog Knish did nice work on her own when running 1000m in 1.3.5, the last 600 in 38.4, and Roc 'N' It clocked 1.6.6 and 38.2. Obrigado, in at Hawke's Bay (mdn 1650m), left 800m behind in 51.5 and 38.2.Hawke's Bay entrant Rouge (mdn 3yo 1200m) had former northerner Simply Divine alongside over 800m in 54.1, the last 600 in 38.4. Simply Divine is now with Lydia Pickford and placed in a Waverley trial a few weeks ago.Monsieur was timed 1000m in 1.8.1, the last 600 in 39.5, and Veloce, off to Hawke's Bay (mdn 1650m), sprinted 600m in 39.8. A maiden by Niagara and one by Thewayyouare, both with Ashley Meadows, ran 800m in 54.2 and 40.2.So It Was was kept to 1000m in 1.13.6, the last 600 in 41.7, and her stablemate Belle Canto, in on Thursday (r65 1200m), ran a quiet 800m in 59.9, the last 600 in 44.4.
