Cracking track gallop during the week from Bons Away, who’ll face the starter in the TAB Multiplier Stakes. He went 800m in 51.0 and 22.50 last 400m at Sandown on the course proper, which was outstanding work on the morning. Tries his guts out always and should represent good value on an each way basis. 
Octabello will be better suited to Flemington and 1600m in the Carbine Club Stakes, the 1st on Derby Day. Worked with Mactier on Tuesday over 1200m, clocking 1.19.32 and 24.50, under a nice hold. Lord Sundowner worked over 1200m in evens and 11.91 last 200m. Rellson ventured to Sandown and galloped on the course proper over 1000m in 1.07.50 and a tick on 23.50 last 400m. 
Each way odds should be on offer for the M Price trained Hiyaam. Rock hard fit and in excellent form, no reason she can’t be in the finish of the Wakeful Stakes. Clocked running home last 1200m on Tuesday  in 1.24.86 and 25.63 last 400m split. No excuses for her, she’ll be in top order on the day and is up to this class.
The Purcel duo lining up in the Coolmore Stakes aren’t just making up the numbers, both rate as some hope in what looks to be an even and top class field race on paper. Both Jukebox and Merchant Navy worked stylishly at Sandown during the week over 800m, home last 400m in around 23.0. On their day, either is capable of taking this feature Group One out. Each way.
Lone Eagle breezed over 800m in 51.11 and 123.28 last 400m. 
I’d expect Silent Sedition to figure prominently in the Group One Myer Classic, 1600m. Went through her paces over 1200m in 1.19.20 and 24.51 last 400m. 3rd up and looking super this time in. 
Flying Jess galloped over 1000m 1.08.22 and 24.06 last 400m. 
Treadmill for Now Or Later. She’s capable of taking out a big one and her recent work has been first class.
Ocean’s Fourteen probably won’t be the classiest horse to emerge from the VRC Derby, but he’s more than likely to run out the trip on what we’ve seen to date. Hit the line like a real stayer in the Derby Trial and has since trained on beautifully. Partnered up with Melb Cup Aspirant Single Gaze, last 1200m clocked at 1.19.75 and 24.50 last 400m split.
