**LADY MONTOYA , LADY ELIZABETH and CAPPELLA MAGNA continue winning run. **



 LADY MONTOYA  scored a very strong win, at Newcastle, over 2300m, on the 3rd December, following 3 good performances prior. First up at Muswellbrook, over the unsuitable 1450m, coming from well back on the turn, to run 4th. Next up, 1850m at Newcastle, and was strong on the line for 3rd. Another 1850m, at Newcastle, saw her disappointed for a run around the 200m, before she flew late for an unlucky 4th. A step up to 2300m, at Newcastle, Sunday 3rd Dec, saw her score a strong win, a pointer to hopefully, further wins, now she is up in trip. Well ridden by apprentice, Blaike McDougall, who had her in a perfect position during the run, hooked out at the 600m, and gave nothing a chance in the run to the line, winning by more than 2 lengths.  

LADY ELIZABETH was scintillating 2nd up at Kembla Grange, on Saturday 14th October, over 1200m. Jockey Rory Hutchings positioned her midfield, covered up, and despite racing greenly during the run, and on straightening, she produced a stunning last 75m, to rein in the leader, who had 2 lengths on her, running the last 600m in 33.58secs. We put her aside, and will have her ready for the Autumn.      

CAPPELLA MAGNA continued her rich vein of form, winning twice, at Bathurst, over 1300m, before going to Goulburn, where up in class, and up in weight (not a good combination), she was run down after leading for most of the race. A record of 4 wins, from 6 starts, was a great effort, and with natural improvement next preparation, we are looking forward to her coming back into work , after her spell.
AANVOERDER following her good Gosford win, went to Randwick, on Cup Day, but had no luck, getting her tongue over the bit, as she was making her run, as they turned for home. Next start, also at Randwick, a tough run 3 wide, saw her not finish in the money. Following a consistent campaign, where she raced 6 times for 1 win and 3 seconds, we sent her to the paddock for 6 weeks.

LADY EVELYN following her good win first up, went to Newcastle, on Saturday, 21st October in a BM 65 Hcp, over 1400m, finishing 3rd. Next was Muswellbrook, on Sunday 5th Nov, where she was run down in the shadows of the post. Canterbury beckoned, in a 1550m F & M Hcp, on Wednesday, 22nd Nov, where she bottled up on the fence, never saw daylight, and followed the place getters to the line.     

LIFELINE PRINCESS was a model of consistency during this preparation, having 5 starts for 1 win, 3 2nds, and an unplaced run, where the ride would struggle to make the highlights reel. Ran into a good one, at her last run before a break, at Hawkesbury, where she finished 2nd to a gelding, who went on win at Flemington, on Oaks Day.  

FOXY QUEEN went 2nd up to Nowra, where she was strong to line, over 1100m, but a bad gate and interrupted run, saw her finish 6th, in a good effort. Sadly, picked up a virus, and went for a short let up. Is now back with Bjorn, at Warwick Farm.

ZAPITA will trial at Warwick Farm on Tuesday 6th Dec. over 790m.

ACHIEVED  returned to Bjorn's stales late October, but showing signs of immaturity was sent back to the paddock for 6 weeks. Will shortly be inspected, to get all clear to commence pre training.   

SHOWADA will also trial at Warwick Farm, on Tuesday 6th Dec. Has been bought along slowly by Bjorn.

BULLETSON  returned to Warwick Farm mid November, and plans are for him to have a jump out late Dec.

SKYQUAKE  had a short stint in at Warwick Farm, but did not seem to be a precious type, and we sent her for a break to take advantage of the good spelling conditions the Spring provides.

ROSY AND GREY commenced pre training late November, was straight back into the groove, and we are looking for her to be back with trainer, Joe Pride mid/late Dec.

STRAIGHT TORQUE went to the paddock late October, then suffered the unkindest cut of all, and will come back into work following the Spring.

CAJUN QUEEN  has been back with Bjorn since late October, and plans are for her to have a jump out 29th Dec, at Warwick Farm,  all going well.

JORDAN'S SWAN has done well since returning to Warwick Farm trainer, Garry Neale. She will shortly commence ¾ pace work.

RENA'S LAD  has pleased Geoff O'Brien, since returning to work and will shortly be ready to commence a new campaign.

VEGA DE LAGO has been working very nicely for Geoff O'Brien, and is ready to have a trial in preparation of his tilt at the Country Championship next year.

ELLA GRIGORA has been given the all clear to commence pre training, and will shortly be floated to Washpool Lodge, in Qld,  with master conditioner Kevin Thomas, to prepare her for a return to Bjorn's stables.

CHUCK'N'PAUL also suffered the unkindest cut, when he went for a break, following a below par effort, after his good first up win. He will commence pre training early Jan.

 Runners coming up over the next month include   LADY EVELYN, LADY MONTOYA, RENA'S LAD, VEGA DE LAGO, with possibly SHOWADA and ZAPITA facing the starter for the first time later in December.

Here's hoping for a continuation of our current good run of success.
