Te Akau Group Trialists

Te Akau trialled four horses in the Group/Listed trial prior to Friday's race meeting at Matamata on Friday 22 December 2023 

 Weather: fine, track: Soft5, rail: true. 


Heat 1 Open 1000 metres (2 ¼ lengths, ¾ lengths 58.3 last 600m 33.5)

Maven Belle (4 m Burgundy – Doyenne) – Matt Cameron; trailed fourth on the inner from barrier one, quickened to lead nearing the 200m and went on to win in classy fashion.

Wild Night (4 g Vanbrugh – Supreme) – Opie Bosson; settled mid inner on a genuine pace, was seven lengths off at the 600m and was not pressured while running home pleasingly.

Trobriand (3 c Kermadec – Arboreal) – Michael McNab; he got back on the inner and was not asked for too much when running home near the rail.

Mehzebeen (4 m Almanzor – Salkantay) – Joe Kamaruddin; she settled last over the sprint trip and, a staying mare that she is, she remained back.
