Breakfast With The Best Blackbookers - Sectional Stars from Trackwork at Moonee Valley

  • See the Blackbookers from Trackwork at Moonee Valley 
Winx was the headline act at Breakfast With The Best at Moonee Valley.

It was all about Winx at the Breakfast With The Best Trackwork on Tuesday Morning, but see what other horses showed they are worth following as we go deeper into the Spring Carnival. 

WINX - Obviously the champion Mare Winx was extremely Impressive in her final hitout before a chance at history, three consecutive Cox Plates. She ran her 1200m in 1.22.72 and her final 400m in 23.86 seconds. She looks bigger and stronger than last year and this is probably the best we will ever see her. 

IN HER TIME - Trainer Ben Smith was very happy with the work of his stable star In Her Time and for good reason. Smith said “She wasn’t here to do much. Corey (Brown) was very happy with her.” In Her Time ran her final 400m in a very slick 23.49 and hasn’t lost any condition after her last start victory in Sydney Stakes. 

RELIGIFY - Religify was a winner of two in a row before being nabbed right on the line by Fast ‘N’ Rocking first-up in the Listed Weekend Hussler Stakes. He had to carry a big weight that day and looks to have Improved off that if his trackwork was any indication. He strided out very well to the line, running his last 400m in 24.59sec and his last 200m in 11.55sec. 

INVINCIBELLA - A progressive four-year-old Mare for Chris Waller who has won both of her two starts this campaign despite A post-race veterinary examination revealed the mare to be displaying the thumps and a poor post-race recovery after last start. She handled the Moonee Valley corner 10/10 at Trackwork and was very Impressive over her final 200m. She ran her Final 400m in 24.64sec and her final 200m in 11.23sec. 

HEY DOC - It was Impossible to miss Hey Doc working this morning. He ran his last 400m in 23.26sec which was the quickest of the morning, he did so more or less under his own steam. He ran his 1000m in 1.03.66. Trainer Tony McEvoy said “He looked really sharp, he loves coming here and is unbeaten at The Valley. He’s ready to run that’s for sure.” 

IMPENDING - This was the most Impressive piece of work for the morning in my opinion. Wow Impending was ultra Impressive. He won the Stradbroke Handicap in the Winter and then got a long way back and flashed home at In Her Time first-up on a day where you needed to be on-speed to win. He ran his final 400m in 23.49sec and his final 200m in 11.02sec. This one needs to go in the Blackbook. 

HISTORY REPEATS - This Gai Waterhouse-trained Mare is a very lightly raced four-year-old. She is very well bred (More Than Ready x Tuesday Joy). Her first run in Melbourne was a cracker in the Pinker Pinker Plate behind Falika and Smart As You Think. She stepped out early this morning and really caught the eye. She looked a little lost around the Valley corner but really knuckled down well in the straight, running her final 400m in 24.15sec and her final 200m in 11.23. A clear horse to follow from this morning's trackwork.

SAVAPINSKI - Another Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained four-year-old Mare. Savapinski has worked through the grades well in New South Wales and ran a very nice fourth in the Group Three Angst Stakes behind the Rob Quinton pair Dixie Blossoms and Daysee Doom. She seemed to handle the Moonee Valley circuit well and ran a very slick 23.32sec for her final 400m this morning. 

BACKFILL - The Danny O’Brien-trained debutant is being aimed at the Inglis Banner over 1000m on Cox Plate Day. I was very impressed with the professionalism of this horse, he didn’t shy at anything and handled the Moonee Valley circuit very well. He ran his last 400m in 24.38sec and his last 200m in 11.44sec all under his own steam. Looks to be a forward two-year-old. 

FIVE STAR GAL - Five Star Gal is also being aimed at the Inglis Banner for trainer John Moloney. I couldn’t ignore her on times, although It was only trackwork, I get the sense she will measure up to race pressure and handle that well. She ran her 1000m in 1.04.42 and her final 400m in a very slick 23.91sec.
