AWAPUNI TRACKWORK Thursday, December 5 By RON GURNEY Lincoln Hills and Divine Wine will head in different directions this weekend after burning up the plough together at Awapuni this morning. All fast work was on the plough (good), where Lincoln Hills and Divine Wine matched strides over a smart 800m in 47.6, the last 600 in 36.2. Lincoln Hills had no luck from a wide draw last start, but still ran on strongly, and has been working solidly ever since. He is in the r72 1400m at Trentham on Saturday. Divine Wine begins a new campaign in the maiden 1200m at Waipukurau on Sunday and was a good third at the Waverley trials two weeks ago. Lincoln Melody, who has won two races, and maiden Lincoln Lane, both by Savabeel and trained by Lisa Latta, were timed 800m in 50 seconds even, the last 600 in 37.2. Trentham runner Lincoln Raider (r72 1400m) covered 800m in 51.3, the last 600 in 37.9. He was narrowly beaten in this grade at Feilding two starts ago and was not disgraced last time out in the Coupland's Mile at Riccarton. Piccolo Toro and Maidstone Park covered 800m in 50 seconds even, the last 600 in 37.4, and Trentham runner Excelleration (r82 1200m) went alone in 51.6 and 38.5. My Father's Gun (r65 1400m), who will enjoy better ground on Saturday, joined Red Red Robin over 800m in 51.6, the last 600 in 38.4. Empower (MAAT 1600m), who was beaten by the draw last start, ran 1000m in 1.5.9, the last 600 in 38.3, and Platinum Touch (by Proisir) recorded 1.6.5 and 38 even. Beefeater had Rosie Myers aboard over 1000m in 1.6.8, the last 600 in 38.5, while Trentham runners Red Rufus (3yo 1400m) and Den Bosch (MAAT 1600m) went 800m together in 52.8, the last 600 in 38 even. Original Gangster, heading to Waipukurau on Sunday (r65 mile), did a quiet round and half before galloping 800m in 53.7, the last 600 in 38.6. Heni and Prince Turbo left 1000m behind in 1.6.3, the last 600 in 39 even, and their stablemate Flying Surf, in the maiden 1350m on Sunday, ran 800m in 53.9 and 39.6. Queen Kamada worked alone over 800m in 54.6, the last 600 in 40 even, while un-raced Vespa two-year-old filly Parisian Poppy and an Alamosa filly, both with Mike Breslin, took 55.6 and 40.1. Fibonacci, who has not raced since the autumn, was kept to 800m in 58.9, the last 600 in 41.6.
