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.

In form Smerdon galloper Don’t Blush baby is out to make it 3 wins in a row in the Moorookyle Park Hcp, 1200m. She worked solidly over 600m, recording 36.50, on the steel. Can’t fault her. All things point to a good run here.
Another last start winner, Fortify , was one of the best workers of the morning. Clocked over 800m in 49.48, last 400m in 22.35. Each way.
Both debutants from the Mick price yard, Advancing and The Frontier, have shown up  in recent trials at Caulfield and won their heats impressively. Advancing has had the most experience, having trialled twice in the last 3 weeks. They’ll line up in the Evergreen Turf Plate, 1100m. Tuesday they worked together over 600m, clocking 40.77 and 25.47 last 400m.
All of Mick Price’s runners worked well during the week on the training track and face the starter in the Tile Importer Hcp, 1440m. Mactier and Kasi Farasi went 1000m in 1.03.24 and 23.0 last 400m.
Poet’s Corner strode over 1000m in 1.06.77 and 23.43 last 400m. Very hard to split them, perhaps slight leaning to Mactier who looks very promising and has performed well in top company.
Atone and Whistler Bowl are nominated for the S Mills Hcp, 1700m, the latter likely to run under lights at Moonee Valley. Both horses are extremely fit and in excellent order. Atone worked home last 800m with Eureka Street (Clanbrooke Hcp)  in 50.0 and last 400m split in 23.85.
Classy 4yo staying mare Bint El Bedu looks a leading contender in the Blue Star Hcp, 2420m. Tuesday morning she had a quiet one, working over 2000m in evens and a tick on 25.0 last 400m. Fit enough if good enough, no excuses.
Prepared to forgive last start flop Love Days, who can turn it around in the Le Pine Funerals Hcp, 1100m. Comes in with 52.5kg after the claim, fit and should get the right run from her alley. Worked with Dunuki over 800m, last 600m in 37.85.
If Not Now When resumes with 51kg on her back after the claim. She worked over 800m in  51.63, last 400m in 24.05. Sprints well fresh.
