Surpriseus and a Shamoline Warrior three-year-old gelding were the only horses timed in another very quiet session at the Hastings track this morning.

   Fast work was confined to the plough, which provided good footing.

   Surpriseus  and the Shamoline Warrior gelding, both in the Kate Hercock stable, worked in easily from the 1000-metre peg in 1:11.1, running the first 400m in 32.3 and then quickening slightly over the last 600 in 38.8.

   Surpriseus is a three-year-old filly by Showcasing who was unplaced in one start last season but finished second in a 1000-metre Foxton trial last month.

   Class mare Savvy Dreams was again restricted to just two rounds of pacework on the plough as were her stablemates Xpression and Vickezzmoet. All three horses look to be coming up well as they prepare for spring campaigns
