Te Akau Ellerslie Sunday Preview

Te Akau New Zealand has two horses racing on Sunday 10 January at Ellerslie - where Te Akau also sponsors the Listed Te Akau Gingernuts' Salver.

Weather: fine, track: Dead4, rail: out 8 metres. 4mls rain forecast Saturday.

1.28 p.m. R3 1 On the Bubbles (2 g Brazen Beau - More Bubbles) - Johnathan Parkes; worked at both ends of the race when winning on debut in the Pearl Series 2YO 1100 metres on 19 December at Awapuni, with Parkes aboard, and contests the $22,500 2YO 1200 metres. Consistent through the trials stage, prior, with two seconds and a third, by a good sire of two-year-olds in Australia, he should go well if able to negate barrier 10. Fixed odds: $5.50 & $2.10.

3.13 p.m. R6 2 Perfect Scenario (3 g Iffraaj - Rosetti Bay) - Danielle Johnson; followed consecutive wins and a narrowly beaten third, finishing fourth here in the Bonecrusher Stakes (Gr. 3, 1400m) on 5 December. He appears ideally placed to rate a strong top three chance in the $25,000 3YO 1500 metres. Fixed odds: $2.30 & $1.15.
