AWAPUNI TRACKWORK Thursday, July 2 By RON GURNEY Rock With Choux and un-raced Per Incanto three-year-old Ted Can Too indicated they were ready for racing on their home track this Saturday when they galloped at Awapuni this morning. Fast work took place on the plough (good) and on the No 1 grass (slow-heavy). Rock With Choux and Ted Can Too, both trained by Anne Herbert, used the plough and were paired over 1000m in 1.9.6, the last 600 in 37.8. Ted Can Too, on debut this Saturday (mdn 1200m), won an Otaki trial (1000m) two weeks ago, ridden by northern jockey Trudy Thornton, who takes the mount at the Marton meeting. She also rides Rock With Choux in the last of the day (r61 1400m No 2). Khalfani (mdn 1000m) and Prince Turbo (r61 1400m No 1) matched strides over 1000m in 1.8.1, the last 600 in 38.4, and La Donna (by Per Incanto), who debuts in the maiden 1000m, went alone in 1.9.4 and 38.6. She won a jump-out at Foxton (850m) last week. The Great Guru (jumpers' hwt) did a quiet round and a half before speeding up to run 800m in 51.8, the last 600 in 38 even, and Desert Magic (r89 1000m) had race-day rider Danielle Hirini aboard over 800m in 53.9 and 39.6. Tiro (r61 1400m No 1) and stablemate Colorado Miss (r61 1400m No 2) were on terms throughout 1000m in 1.11 even, the last 600 in 40.8. The blinkers come off Colorado Miss and a shadow roll goes on. Outa Cash (r61 1200m), second at the Foxton jump-outs (1000m) last week, was not after time over 800m in 59.3, the last 600 in 41.3. On the No 1 grass, Lucy Tanner-trained My Father's Gun and Champers (Peter Didham) caught the eye in separate gallops, with My Father's Gun clocking 50.9 for 800m, the last 600 in 37.9. Champers (by Tavistock), an un-raced three-year-old half-sister to Group 1 winner On The Rocks, recorded 50.8 and 37.8. Lovetokeephim, in Saturday's jumpers' highweight (1550m), had his owner-trainer Kim Clapperton aboard over 1000m in 1.5.6, the last 600 in 38.3. Lincoln Dreamer (r61 1400m No 1) and stablemate Kotahi (No 2) were at a good clip throughout 800m in 50.3, the last 600 in 38.2. They should perform well in a fresh state on Saturday. Jugador (by El Hermano), on debut in the maiden 1200m, and a Ferlax gelding covered 800m in 51.5, the last 600 in 38.9, while un-raced Vespa two-year-old filly Heidi Belle, trained by Peter Didham, came up with 52.4 and 38.4. Floral Art (r95 1400m), who won three races on heavy tracks during her last campaign, skipped over 800m in 52.5, the last 600 in 39 even, and Atenartin (r89 1000m) had a Jimmy Choux gelding alongside over a 600m sprint in 40.1. Young Squire (r61 1200m), now trained by Deborah Parry, was timed 800m in an easy 57.2, the last 600 in 41.4, and Obrigado (r95 1400m) posted 57.6 and 41.8. Young Squire will race without blinkers. Bruno Kelly (hwt 1550m) was not chasing the clock over 1000m in 1.14.1, the last 600 in 41.7. He placed third at the Waverley point-to-point last month.
