AWAPUNI TRACKWORK Tuesday, January 8 By RON GURNEY Roydon Bergerson-trained stablemates Lubaya and Beefeater, probable race rivals at Wellington on Saturday, galloped in great style at Awapuni this morning. Fast work took place on the course proper (good) and on the plough (good). Lubaya and Beefeater (Anniversary Hcp) used the course proper and reeled off 1000m in 1.4.6, the last 600 in 35.9, looking quite capable of going quicker if allowed to. Lubaya entered the open grade frame with an impressive winning run in the Summer Cup (1600m) at her home track on Boxing Day, suggesting there is a lot more to come, something we knew was inevitable from last season. Beefeater won the Bulls Country Cup (1500m) in November, failed in the Wanganui Cup (2040m), then ran second to Lucyinrio (1300m) at Hastings on New Year's Day. He finished fourth in the Anniversary Hcp last year then went on to win the Taranaki Cup (1800m) at his next start. The only other horse to use the course proper this morning was Dal Kilchoan, who warmed up from the 1000m to run his final 800m in 54.4, the last 600 in 39.7. On the plough, Redwood four-year-old Chartwell and stablemate Sentimental Miss were paired over a very nice 800m in 48.4, the last 600 in 36.3. Chartwell put in an eye-catching run for fifth at Hastings (1600m) last start and has improved further judging by this latest solid trial, which augurs well for the maiden mile at Wanganui on Thursday. Wellington entrants Johnny Lincoln (r65 2100m) and Henree Winkler (r82 1400m) were on terms throughout 1000m in 1.4.6 and they completed the final 800m in 49.7, the last 600 in 37.1. Hell Fire (mdn 1340m) and Lincoln Fury (mdn 3yo 1340m), both in at Wanganui, covered 1000m in 1.4.9, with the sectionals coming up in 50.2 and 37.9. Lincoln Fury (by All Too Hard) will wear blinkers. Eva Dawn, who resumes on Thursday (mdn 1200m), worked alone over 800m in 51 even, the last 600 in 37.9, while her stablemates Piccolo Toro and Alesha Lincoln, both in the maiden mile, went together in 51.1 and 37.8. Piccolo Toro (by Edenwold) was unplaced on debut in November, and the blinkers go on, while Alesha Lincoln (by Alamosa) was unplaced on debut at Otaki just before Christmas. Fictitious (Wellington) and Master Lincoln (Wanganui) matched strides over 800m in 49.9, the last 600 in 38.1, and Lovetokeephim, back in work with Kim Clapperton, ended with 600m in 38.2. Wanganui runner Lyano (r65 mile) was timed 1000m in 1.7.1, the last 600 in 39.2, while Wellington entrants Platinum Touch (2yo 1200m), third on debut, and Lincoln Sky (r65 1400m) were kept to 800m in 52.9, the last 600 in 39.4. Weare Rocking (by Road To Rock), who has not raced since June, sprinted 600m in 39.8, and her stablemate Hypatia, in at Wanganui (mdn 2040m), went a quiet 800m in 55.6 and 40.7. Passing Glance (mdn 2040m) and Lincoln's Command clocked 56.5 and 41.6.
