Message: Tubular Bells ran 2nd in a trial last week at Cranbourne over 1550m.
He is entered for both major Spring Cups. I think he'll find it hard to measure up to in the big one's but hopefully he can have an injury free campaign. I'd target him at races like the Benalla Cup or Bendigo/Ballarat Cups.
He's had a couple of setbacks with his feet and has had other little problems which have set him back about a month.
Colin Little is dead keen to run him because he reckons he'll be an awesome horse in the autumn and needs him racing in the spring to educate him and get his rating up high enough to run in good races.

Message: Spot on with work The Room. as some of you may know, I am one of the owners. he has lost a bit of time with ringworm and feet problems. Didnt trial at Cranbourne and wont trial next week. he did have a good gallop yetserday and ran a slashing time.....only because he is very good and not because he is fit.
Message: I'm not sure if it was you Jee, but I heard after Our Lukas won the Ipswich Cup the owner was interviewed regarding his win and was asked if he had anything else in the stable worth following?
His reply was that Work The Room is another one of his horses and is working beautifully at the moment and will be one to follow when resuming.
I therefore blackbooked him but haven't done the form on this race.
Will have a look later on and hope odds aren't too short if any chance.
