TRADESMAN AND HOPETOUN ON TRACK

May 08, 2017

Tradesman and Hopetoun are on track for good preparations after strong trial performances at Lark Hill on Monday.

Tradesman was beaten three lengths in a hot trial which was taken out by Railway Stakes winner Scales Of Justice.

Troy Turner partnered the five-year-old gelding and was able to settle behind the leaders.

He used the whip a couple of times down the home straight and Tradesman hit the line well in limited room to clock a time of 57:52.

Tradesman will start first-up in the Belmont Sprint over 1400m on June 3.

Hopetoun won her trial in a blistering 56:77, the second fastest trial of the day over 950m.

The five-year-old mare defeated Herron Point and Helena Miss while other promising types Thunder Boom and Friarandice were down the track.

She is only a few weeks away from a return to the track.
