Te Akau Te Aroha Friday Preview


Te Akau Racing has six horses entered on Friday 15 October at Te Aroha.

Weather: fine, track: Slow9, rail: out 6 metres. No rain forecast.


12.55 p.m. R2 5 Befranklin  (4 g Civics – Dixie Belle) – Joe Kamaruddin (a2); worked home close at the line when trialling on 21 September at Cambridge (poly-track), and debuts in the $12,000 Maiden 1600 metres. He is ideally drawn (4) with weight relief to 56.5kg, so looking for an encouraging run.

1.30 p.m. R3 5 La Flora Belle (4 m Iffraaj – Tsarina Belle) – Danielle Johnson; sustained strong finish off wide run in the Maiden 1550 metres on 22 September at Cambridge (poly-track), and rates top three chance from barrier three in the $12,000 Maiden 1600 metres. She is a three-quarter sister to former stable-mate and dual Horse of the Year Melody Belle (Commands), winner of 14 Group 1 races.

2.05 p.m. R4 1 Medal  (3 g Savabeel – Gold Rocks) – Danielle Johnson; produced solid effort for fourth in the Maiden 3YO 1400 metres on 1 October at Te Rapa, and contests the $12,000 Maiden 3YO 1400 metres. He has ability to rate a top three chance if appreciative of conditions.

2.05 p.m. R4 12 Trieste  (3 f Tivaci – Domani Oro) – Joe Kamaruddin (a2); remained back when resuming in the Maiden 3YO 1200 metres on 22 September at Cambridge (poly-track), and steps up in the $12,000 Maiden 3YO 1400 metres. Blinkers go on and she receives opportunity to improve.

2.40 p.m. R5 4 Charmaine’s Dream (4 m Charm Spirit – Scatter Cat) – Danielle Johnson; was strong winner over 1200 metres during Easter at Tauranga, and two trials in preparation to resume in the $12,000 Rating 65 1200 metres. She rates a top three prospect if she does things right from barrier eight.

4.24 p.m. R8 10 Spectrier  (3 g Vadamos – Selenus) – Joe Kamaruddin (a2); closed margin when trialling on 28 September at Cambridge (poly-track), and resumes in the $12,000 Maiden 1200 metres. His dam Selenus (Pentire) won five times from 1600m – 2200m, so look for him finding the line over the sprint trip.
