  B(3) W(59)
 ( J-  Dylan Turner )
Te Akau bring down this promising Jakkalberry horse. He beat Ginger King who went on to win a strong maiden race on Saturday. Going to be very hard to beat today.

  B(2) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
Placed
Dividend : $1.30
A mare who is never far away she can do things wrong in the gates which doesn't help your chances. Can go close if she does things right. Does like to run second which is a worry to win punters.

 ( J-  Robert Hannam )
 ( T-  Gary Vile )
Placed
Dividend : $1.10
Tjis filly trialed up very well. She's a green galloper and I like the engagement of Robbie Hannam who went pantnered with a Gary Vile first starter has to be a good chance.
Main Danger
7 Magic Monkey   F:
  B(1) W(55.5)
This filly trialed up very well looks to have more ringcraft than my top pick. Both worth following out of today and Shane Crawford very rarely travels down without success.

Well supported on debut where he ran well at Ruakaka maybe better this way round. His last trial was very encouraging when making good ground late.

Dividends : $9.20 $3.30
This horse has improved off every trial or jumpout he has had. Was safely held by Hydroexpress but would not surprise if this horse lobbed into a place.

5 Platinum Bordeaux   F: 4X
  B(8) W(55.5)

Could not spilt the Lisa Latta pair but went for this runner due to a better priced. I thought she trialed up well and a good performance first up is expected.

This 2 year old has more questions that answers

Main Danger
7 Hypatia   F: 31544

4 Vincenzo Lorenzo   F: 33
  B(10) W(58)

A nice promising galloper. Has only had two starts for two good thirds. A horse who is probably not far away from winning but a horse I'm prepared to risk in this as he is still green and may need more racing.

This mare has needed ground for a while. She didn't get much luck last time getting dragged back by slow runners. I think a win is not far away for her.

This races are tough and even more when it's the last leg of the quaddie!
