AWAPUNI TRACKWORK Tuesday, June 16 By RON GURNEY Lydia Pickford-trained three-year-old Tumbleweed again took the time honours during a quiet gallop session at Awapuni this morning. Fast work was on the plough (good) and on the No 1 grass (slow). Tumbleweed (by Super Easy), ridden by Pickford herself, used the plough and cut out 1000m in 1.7.8, the last 600 in 37.7. A fortnight ago at Awapuni, Tumbleweed ran 800m in 51.5 and 37.7, and two days later was unplaced at the Foxton trials. The filly is a former northerner, whose sole victory in 10 starts so far was at Ruakaka last August (1200m) for Cambridge trainer Shaun Ritchie. She has not raced since New Year's Day at Hastings. A Raise The Flag gelding and a Nadeem gelding, both trained by Lisa Latta, covered 800m in 53.3, the last 600 in 38.3, and maiden Clownin Around (Pickford), who placed third at the Foxton trials, was kept to 1000m in 1.12.5, the last 600 in 40.8. On the No 1 grass, maiden mare Berry Delightful (by Jakkalberry) gathered speed from the 1000m to come her final 800m in 49.8, the last 600 in 36.9. She has shown some ability on the flat without winning, but is likely to be seen over hurdles when racing resumes in this region in the coming weeks. She is with Mark Oulaghan. Her stablemates Master Finn, third at the Waverley point-to-point meeting last Thursday, and West Coast warmed up from the 1200m to be timed their final 1000m in 1.5.3, the last 600 in 38.3. West Coast is a four-year-old (by Mettre En Jeu), who was unplaced on the flat last winter in his only two starts so far. Un-raced four-year-old gelding Jugador (by El Hermano), trained by Deborah Parry, ran 800m in 55.4, the last 600 in 40.8.
