Te Akau Cambridge Midweek Preview
13 Oct 2021
Te Akau Racing has two horses entered on Wednesday 13 October at Cambridge (synthetic).
Weather: fine, track: poly-track, rail: true. Showers forecast.
1.30 p.m. R1 6 Wychwood (4 m Rip Van Winkle – Patrimonium) – Joe Kamaruddin (a2); rolled on past the post when trialling here and did similar on the course when debuting in the NZB Pearl Series Maiden Fillies & Mares 1300 metres, won by stable-mate The Perfect Pink (Savabeel), on 22 September. Her dam won three times to 1600 metres and stepping up in the $12,000 Maiden Fillies & Mares 1550 metres should suit.
3.54 p.m. R5 1 Rip Van Gogh (4 g Rip Van Winkle – On the Move) – Michael McNab; improved second-up with a strong finish for second, running fastest last 600m (33.3), in the $12,000 Maiden 1300 metres on 22 September at Cambridge (poly-track). In the corresponding race, he rates a top three chance.
