AWAPUNI TRACKWORK Tuesday, February 4 By RON GURNEY Five year-old mares Excelleration and Authentic Charm were paired in a first-class trial at Awapuni this morning. All fast work took place on the plough (good), where Excelleration, trained by Peter Didham), and Authentic Charm (Lisa Latta) stretched out boldly over 1000m in 1.1.6, coming the final 800m in 48.3, the last 600 in 36.4. Excelleration, in at Manawatu on Friday, is knocking on the door for an overdue success, while Authentic Charm, a half-sister to Authentic Paddy, is still chasing her first victory. She won a trial at Foxton in December and was fourth when resuming (1300m) at Tauherenikau over New Year. She returns to the same track for a maiden 1000m on Thursday and looks a huge improver. Flickering Shadow (mdn 1300m) and Platinum Wild Card (Manawatu) covered 1000m in 1.2.5, the last 600 in 36.1, and Princess Priscilla, on debut at Tauherenikau (mdn mile), went alone in 1.2.7 and 36.2. She was a recent Foxton trial winner (1300m). Hee's Our Secret, who dead-heated for first on the final day of the Wellington Cup carnival, and Kellys Inspiration ran a nice 1000m in 1.5.1, the last 600 in 36.1. They are in on Friday. Don't Know Jakk (r72 2100m) was timed 1000m in 1.7.1, the last 600 in 36.3, and his failure on Wellington Cup was too bad to be true. He can make amends. Jessie's Rock (Tauherenikau) did a quiet round and a half before speeding up to run 800m in 50.9, the last 600 in 36.8, and he gives every indication 1600 metres will suit on Thursday. Friday runners Rukita (r65 1550m) and Colyton Sky (mdn 1400m) matched strides over 1000m in 1.3.8, the last 600 in 37.2, while Platinum Spirit (r65 2100m) and Platinum Road went together over 800m in 49.1 and 37.5. Benny Lincoln (Tauherenikau) and Lincoln Fury were on terms throughout 800m in 50.8, the last 600 in 37.9, and He's Done A Runner (Manawatu) went alone in 50.9 and 37.3. Semper Magico, a winner at Otaki in December (slow), but unplaced on the first day at Wellington (good), ran 800m in 51.2, the last 600 in 37.6. He is in the r65 1550m on Friday. Last-start Otaki maiden winner Princess Ani (r65 1550m) and stablemate Prince Turbo (r65 2100m) came to the finish of 1000m in 1.6.4, the last 600 in 38.4, and Carlingford Bay, in at Tauherenikau, ended with 600m in 38.9. Lincoln Lane (Tauherenikau) had Maidstone Park for a partner over 1000m in 1.7.2, the last 600 in 38.5, and Lincoln Lane looks a huge improver after a creditable resuming run at Otaki. Flying Surf, a maiden winner on Boxing Day but unplaced at Wellington, and stablemate Voralto, unplaced when resuming, ran 1000m in 1.7.4 and 38.6. They race at Manawatu. Blue On Black r72 2100m) began from the winning post (1400m) and was timed from the 1200m in 1.24.8, coming the final 1000m in 1.8 even, the last 600 in 38.9. Sweepstake (Wairarapa Breeders') and Dedoje (mdn 1300m) covered 800m in 52 even, the last 600 in 38.9, and Dedoje (by Rubick) was just caught on debut at Otaki last month. Den Bosch, preparing for the Avondale Guineas at Ellerslie on Saturday week, worked right-handed over 1000m in a quiet 1.10 even, the last 600 in 39.6. Manawatu entrant Busybeingfamous, caught wide on debut at Otaki, was kept to 1000m in 1.10.3, the last 600 in 39.7, and un-raced Mongolian Khan two-year-old colt Bo Jackson, trained by Anne Herbert, went an easy 800m in 58.2, the last 600 in 42 even. He is a half-brother to Callsign Mav.
