Te Akau Matamata Wednesday Preview

Te Akau New Zealand has five horses racing on Wednesday 11 March at Matamata.

Weather: cloudy, track: Dead6, rail: out 4 metres. Showers forecast.

1.58 p.m. R2 10 Get Hitched (3 f Lonhro - Wedding) - Opie Bosson; was given time after her first start for the stable, when third in the Maiden 3YO 1100 metres on 27 November at Rotorua. She was impressive winning at the trials on 25 February at Avondale, and a similar performance should see her very competitive in the $10,000 Maiden 1200 metres.

1.58 p.m. R2 13 Greedy  (3 f Savabeel - Indulge) - Roy Kozaki; debuts from barrier two in the $10,000 Maiden 1200 metres. She did everything right when second at the trials on 25 February at Avondale. A three-quarter sister to Te Akau trained Group Two & Three winner Splurge (Savabeel), she could commence with a bold showing.

3.08 p.m. R4 3 Super Sid (3 g Rip Van Winkle - Half Bak) - Opie Bosson; spelled after debuting here in September, he trialled well for a close fourth on 25 February at Avondale. A three-quarter brother to dual Group One winning stable-mate Te Akau Shark (Rip Van Winkle), winner of seven from 12 and $1.4m, he is destined to go further but ideally placed to kick off in the $10,000 Maiden 3YO 1200 metres.

3.08 p.m. R4 9 Mai Tai  (3 f Atlante - Tropical Punch)Roy Kozaki; powered up stylishly to win (collaring Greedy (above)) at the trials on 25 February at Avondale, and debuts in the $10,000 Maiden 3YO 1200 metres. Her dam, Tropical Punch (Faltaat), won on debut over 1200 metres and Group Three and Listed placed to 1600 metres. Franking her trial effort should see her finding the line strongly.

4.18 p.m. R6 2 Markus Aurelius (3 g Ghibellines - Evancho) - Opie Bosson; debuted here on 2 February with a big run for second in the Maiden 1200 metres, before closing late for third in the Maiden 1350 metres on 23 February at Wairoa. His dam, Evancho (Shinzig), won four times to 2100 metres and he rates a top three chance in the $10,000 Maiden 1400 metres.
