Stephen Marsh very bullish. Got lost at the turn at Tauranga back to his preferred way of going. Blinkers on will take a lot of beating.

  B(7) W(56)
Placed
Dividend : $1.50
She was in top form on off tracks last spring. Top cup horse. She has had two runs to prepare with a top effort in the Cuddle last time. A while between runs and maybe she maybe a run short.

Returned to the winning circle with a top win at Awapuni. This horse has had tendon issue but a couple of seasons ago one of nz best stayers wouldn't surprise if he gets this status back with a top run today.
Include in Multis
2 Tiptronic   F: 20250
  B(8) W(59)
Second in a Group 1 WFA three back over 2000m. Good 5th at Matamata and had too tough of a run at Tauranga. Distance maybe a query but his quality is not.
Longer Odds
6 Balham   F: 64290
  B(4) W(53)

The bolter in this. Up to this on his day. Had a freshen up since Wellington Cup fail but his Manawatu Cup second was top class. No weight and his work has been good leading into this.

Remarks

A good field lines up in the Hawkes Bay Cup

3 Hocico Blanco   F: 77X21
