2.07 p.m. R4 6 Remington (6 g Darci Brahma - Kudamm) - Opie Bosson; ran very good closing sectionals, 33.5 and 33.6, respectively, before being held up in the Open 1400 metres on Auckland Cup Day (13 March) at Ellerslie. Senior rider board and he rates a top three chance in the $32,500 J Swap Bay of Plenty Cup (Open, 1400m) if appreciative of the course at his first attempt. Fixed odds: $4.60 & $1.50.

3.20 p.m. R6 2 Prise De Fer  (5 g Savabeel - Foiled) - Opie Bosson; returned to winning form under 61.5kg in the Open 1500 metres on Derby Day (7 March) at Ellerslie, and contests the $100,000 Ultimate Mazda Japan Trophy (Gr. 2, 1600m). A Rich Hill Mile (Gr. 2, 1600m) winner and Group One placed at the trip, he drops to 57kg and rates a top three chance. Fixed odds: $2.50 & $1.30.

4.00 p.m. R7 5 Secret Amour  (4 m Niagara - My Secret) - Opie Bosson; had a very good first campaign, scoring an authoritative win over 1400 metres and included three seconds at Ellerslie. Ran home strongly for third when trialling on 16 March at Cambridge, and although destined for further she should resume with a good effort in the $22,500 Rating 65 1200 metres. Fixed odds: $2.70 & $1.40.
