AWAPUNI TRACKWORK Tuesday, November 12 By RON GURNEY Du'blues, who looked a shade unlucky not to have paid a dividend when resuming two weeks ago, has trained on beautifully judging by a first-class trial at Awapuni this morning. Fast work was held on the No 1 grass (dead-slow) and on the plough (dead), with a majority of horses due to race at the Manawatu meeting on Thursday. Du'blues, trained by Ashley Meadows, used the No 1 grass and had Mike Breslin-trained He's Done A Runner for a partner over a very smart 1000m in 1.2.4, the last 600 in 35.9. Several horses broke 37 seconds for their last 600 metres, but this was the only gallop to break 36 seconds. Du'blues tackles the r65 1200m on Thursday. Veloce and My Calendar Girl matched strides over 1000m in 1.3.1, the last 600 in 36.1, while Jessie's Rock and Soul Vacation, both from the stable of Peter Didham, posted 48.5 for 800m, the last 600 in 36 even. Brahmarahma and Kamanda Lincoln were on terms throughout 800m in 48.3, the last 600 in 36.2, followed soon after by Eastern Warrior, who went alone in 48.3 and 36.4. The Rippa and Keep It Savvy covered 800m in 48.5, the last 600 in 36.5, and an Alamosa-Minno Noir gelding, came up with 48.6 and 36.7. Platinum Spirit and Lincoln Star were timed 800m in 49 even, the last 600 in 36.4, and last-start winner Floral Art recorded 49.5 and 36.7. Didham-trained Den Bosch and Red Rufus went together in 52.1 and 36.8. Young Squire and Prince Turbo did nice work over 1000m in 1.5 even, the last 600 in 37.4, and a Thewayyouare gelding trained by Maurice O'Brien clocked 50 seconds even for 800m, the last 600 in 37.1. Prosecco ended 800m with 600 in 37.6, and a Darci Brahma-Vendemiaire maiden filly with Jeff Lynds ended with 37.6 as well. Platinum Touch and a Deep Impact filly stablemate completed their task in 37.7, and Excelleration took 37.9. Hank Moody worked over 1400m, being timed from the 1000m in 1.6.1, the last 600 in 38.3, while an Alamosa-Cold Shoulder gelding trained by Peter Didham ran 53 even and 38.8. Obrigado did a quiet round and a half before galloping home 600m in 38.2, and an Echoes Of Heaven gelding trained by Jeff Lynds ended with 600m in 38.5. Arturo worked alone over 1000m in 1.8 even, the last 600 in 39.9, and un-raced three-year-old gelding Durham Lad (by Falkirk) ran 800m in 52.4 and 39.1. He is trained by Matthew Eales and won a Foxton trial last week. A Pins-In Memory Of three-year-old gelding trained by Talia Yeates was given an easy 1000m in 1.11 even, the last 600 in 42.9. He won at the Foxton trials last week as well. On the plough, NZ Oaks-winning mare Sentimental Miss had Rock Island Line alongside over a bold 800m in 48.5, the last 600 in 36.9, and both horses are winning chances on Thursday. Platinum Command and Johnny Lincoln were paired over 800m in 50.9, the last 600 in 37.6, and Master Fin warmed up from the 1000m mark to clock 51.5 for his final 800m, the last 600 in 38.4. Rusty In Rongotea left 800m behind in 52.2, the last 600 in 38.5, and her stablemate Higher Power was kept to 53.8 and 39.3.
