The All Stars barn principals Natalie and Mark probably have to check each morning at the moment just to see which country they are in.

The duo travel between Christchurch, Sydney and Auckland so much at the moment that it must make their heads spin at times.

Mark will spend  this week in Sydney preparing the team for the big day at Menangle on Sunday.

Natalie is already back in Christchurch after her big night at Sydney preparing the team for meetings at Addington and Auckland.

Natalie will head to Auckland on Friday and then over to Sydney after the Auckland meeting.

Natalie will take the drives on all of their runners on Sunday including Adore Me.

The Auckland based team at the moment is under the care of Duane Marfisi and Tim Williams.

Natalie was pleased with how things panned out on Saturday night at Menangle

"We were especially happy that the Sydney team had a really good hitout because it is such a testing track and nearly all of them needed a strong race."

"Isaiah  thrilled me with his run."

I thought with his lack of recent racing if he got fourth even with that run in a race that quick he was doing well and he did better than that."

"Mark was very pleased with Adore Me as you might think."

"Isaiah's draw in the Chariots is quite a good one without having had time to analyse the form."

"But he will improve heaps with the run."

"Hug The Wind and Fight For Glory were both great."

"Hug the Wind has drawn one."

"I would have preferred two to four to be honest but we will take one."

Fight For Glory has a tough draw but she is at the top of her game and she can tough it and still sprint home so it could have been worse."

" They were all good," Natalie said.

Its hard to comprehend at times how many top horses are part of the All Star barn but this weekend is a good example of their depth of talent.

On Friday night they will line up serious winning chances in the Great Northern Oaks and City Of Auckland Free For All before heading to Sydney where they have big chances in the New South Wales Derby, Oaks, Ladyship Mile and Chariots Of Fire.
