Te Akau NZ Riccarton Preview

Te Akau New Zealand has one horse entered for the ten-race programme on Saturday August 3 at Christchurch.

As at 3:00pm on Friday August 2 the conditions were: overcast and Heavy10, rail out 2 metres.

3:31pm R8 11 Thrive (6m Columbia - Trove) - Matthew Cameron; seasoned mare in her biggest test to date. Under handicap conditions she makes the field with minimum weight 53 kg for in form jockey Matthew Cameron. The large Riccarton track and any rain on the day will play to her stamina, making the 1600m event more of an 1800m affair. She has three wins on heavy tracks and the first time blinkers may be the key to the necessary improvement to gain valuable black type.
