After a long breakfast and relaxing morning in the paddock, Smoken Up has stepped up his preparation for tonight’s farewell appearance at Tabcorp Park Melton.

The outstanding son of Tinted Cloud was given a light jog by trainer Lance Justice to ‘loosen up the limbs’ during one last session around the training track.

With Justice admitting the warm morning “has made it easier on both of us”, Smoken Up had little more than a leisurely stroll.

“We pretty much went for a wander around the track,” Justice declared. “Just a few easy laps to stretch out his legs and get him in the right frame of mind for tonight.

“He is feeling terrific, moving freely and is pretty much just counting down the hours now.”
