TE RAPA


RACE 1
5 Ranger

Disappointing at Rotorua last month but was in excellent form during the Hawke’s Bay Carnival, winning one race and finishing runner-up in another. Has had a seven week freshen up and goes well in this state (5 starts for 1 win and 2 placings).
Selections: 5-10-8-1



RACE 2
15 Targhee

She has shown enough this campaign to suggest she will be a major threat in this, provided she can slot in from the wide draw. She ran the second fastest sectionals over the final 400 and 200 on a Dead6 surface at Tauranga back in September.
Selections: 15-6-13-18



RACE 3
5 Outage

Looks to have come back from a spell in good order. He found the line smartly in a trial on the Cambridge synthetic track on 22 December despite a wide run. 
Selections: 5-7-8-1



RACE 4
6 Tuppence

Went down by a short margin at his first attempt at 2100 earlier this month. Will improve on that run and has drawn to get a softer trip here. 
Selections: 6-10-11-8



RACE 5
3 O’Jessica

I was impressed by the most recent trial of D’Oro Mexicano but I am sticking with the Stephen McKee-trained mare given she has drawn a far superior barrier.
Selections: 3-12-13-14



RACE 6
6 Sovereignty

Has just had the one trial but showed enough to suggest he will be very competitive on debut. He displayed decent gate speed in that trial and finished strongly without really being asked for an effort. 
Selections: 6-8-1-3



RACE 7
11 Sacred Option

His trial form points to him having more ability than he has shown in two race day starts. He put a big margin on his opposition when letting down from near-last in his most recent trial.
Selections: 11-4-2-7



RACE 8
1 Lilikoi

Brilliant winner at Rotorua just after Christmas when downing smart mare Can I Get An Amen. Will be suited by the step up to the mile and Joe Kamaruddin’s four-kilo claim will be a huge assist.
Selections: 1-4-2-3



RACE 9
8 Gitche Gumee

Peter and Dawn Williams-trained mare who fought gamely at her last start despite doing plenty of work early. Will improve on her first start over the mile and should be hitting the line strongly on Wednesday.
Selections: 8-10-14-19



RACE 10
1 Sacred Command

Went awfully close at his first start back from a long spell. He’ll strip fitter for that run and should enjoy the step up to the mile here.  
Selections: 1-9-2-15



RACE 11
12 Providenceprovides

Was entitled to weaken in the final 100 metres of her debut after doing plenty of work early from a wide gate. She has drawn to get a softer trip on Wednesday after coming up with the ace. 
Selections: 12-4-6-13



Best: 12 Providenceprovides (Race 11)
Next: 1 Lilikoi (Race 8)
