Te Akau: Te Akau NZ Riccarton Preview

Te Akau: Te Akau NZ Riccarton Preview

Te Akau has a team of four stepping out at Riccarton on Saturday.

Te Akau New Zealand has four horses entered for the nine-race programme on Saturday March 23 at Riccarton.

As at 9:02am on Thursday March 21 the conditions were: fine and Dead6, rail out seven metres.

12:18pm R1 4 Bronte Lass (4 m Stravinsky – Little Dorritt) – Rosie Myers; was drawn wide to make her run, off a steady pace, and sustained a big run for second here on March 7 in the Benchmark 75 1600 metres. Following two wins and two seconds in this campaign, she now steps to 2000 metres and her course record (3-1-2) should ensure another bold performance.

2:02pm R4 4 Stanica Star (6 g Danzero – Stanica) – Rosie Myers; resumed here in a sprint over 1200 metres on March 7, making good ground over the concluding stages for fifth and now steps out in the Benchmark 75 1400 metres. His course/distance and second-up record is strong enough to see him competitive from barrier four.

5:16pm R9 8 Riverenza (3 f King’s Chapel – Sea Rhythm) – Rosie Myers; followed a second here over 1400 metres with a commanding win over 1800m, at only her third start. In her favour is to remain over the same trip and although up in grade she possesses the quality to measure up with an economical run from barrier five – one of two in the race for Te Akau.

5:16pm R9 14 Sovereign Rose (5 m Pins – Pavan) – Courtney Barnes (a3); was inconvenienced at the wrong time when the field compressed entering the straight and had her chances extinguished in a leader dominated race here on March 7 in the Benchmark 65 2000 metres. She finished second at her previous start, on the same course, carries only 52kgs and has the ability to test her opponents off a genuine pace.
