Expect the Mick Price trained The Chairman to improve with racing and distance, however, the Seascay Hcp, 1700m isn’t out of his grasp here 2nd up. Wasn’t pushed hard on Tuesday morning, working over 1200m in evens and 24.84 last 400m. Going well this time in and on target to bag a few. Black-book him.

Impressive debut from Al Dorama at Sandown back in December, going down by ½ length to Graceful Storm. He’s improved in condition nicely since and appears to right in the mix in the Meadow Mist Plate, 1000m. His work was good during the week, striding over 600m in 35.50 and 23.76 last 400m.

The improving and untapped Tagreeda worked super during the week in the lead up to the Craftsman Hcp, 1400m. She partnered up with Mighty Boss over 1000m, running home last 800m in 50.29 and 23.31 last 400m split. 3rd up and well placed.

Bellegano also 3rd up,  went 600m in 36.52 and 23.79 last 400m.

Shawla breezed over 800m in 51.89 and 23.86 last 400m.

The Aaron Purcell trained Lite’n My Veins has been holding his condition well given he’s been so sparingly raced over the Summer months. He’ll should be right there amongst them in the Chester Manifold Stakes, 1400m, run at listed level. Maintenance gallop on Tuesday over 1000m in 1.10 and a tick on 26.0 last 400m. C Williams to pilot a huge plus.

The Henry Dwyer trained Straviera is 3rd up in the Gavelhouse Bm64 Friday night at Cranbourne. Impressive win last start, no reason she won’t be very competitive again if she can overcome her awkward alley. Tuesday morning she went 600m in 37.38 and 23.92 last 400m, on the bit.

Mick Price will most likely back up with Pete’s Dragon on Friday night at Cranbourne in the NZB Karaka BM64 Hcp. She’s been in excellent order throughout this prep and racing in great heart. Rock hard fit and holding her condition well, stable expect her to be right there at the business end.

Big watch Sirius Black who drops in grade on her most recent outing.

Solid run last start by Heavenly Descent, who looks to have her hoof right on the till and should go close in the McCafe Hcp, 1600m. Solid gallop Tuesday morning over 1200m, clocking 1.19.78 and 24.32 last 400m, appeared to do it effortlessly.

Stormsabrewing goes better on firmer going and should improve. She went 1000m in 1.08.74 and 26.83 last 400m.

Of the Caulfield runners, the lightly raced Combative creates a lot of interest in the 1500m Ladbrokes Hcp. Solid work during the week, clocked her last 800m in 52.04 and 24.02 last 400m split. 3rd up and looks promising.

Skylake worked 1200m in 1.22.28 and 25.57 last 400m.

Domino Vitale looked keen enough on the training track during the week. She resumes after just on 3 months off. Goes ok fresh and rates as some sort of hope at odds in the Powerflo Solutions Hcp, 1200m. She worked 1200m in 1.18.05 and (37.0) last 600m split. Juicy each way odds.

Khutulun resumes and often goes well fresh. Monitor market moves closely.

The well bred Witten Tycoon filly Teleplay just got there on debut at Kilmore and will be out to make it 2 for 2 in the Gold Carat Plate, 1200m. Wasn't asked to do a lot in her gallop on Tuesday. She strode over 1000m in 1.14.57 and 24.41 last 400m.

Of the rest, Je Suis Tycoon worked 800m in 52.82, last 400m in 24.30 and Straviera in 53.46 and 23.68.

Lady Esprit struggled a bit last start in the wet. Should get conditions to suit in the Follow Hcp, 1200m. Her work was excellent on Tuesday morning, she covered 800m in 50.25 and 23.10 last 400m split. If she can overcome her alley, she can figure prominently. Fitness wise, spot on. Tough race, each way again for her.

Calendar Lad is 3rd up in the N.Y.E legends Hcp, 1500m. Not a bad run last start on an unsuitable soft surface. Restricted to treadmill and pace work this week. Very capable on his day and might be worth a nibble each way at odds if you fancy him.
