Weather: fine, track: Dead4, rail: true





1.34 p.m. R2 5 Irish Heart  (4 m O'Reilly - Rehab) - Craig Grylls; had a quiet trial on 16 December at Te Aroha, and resumes in the $10,000 Maiden 1200 metres. Sparingly raced, she has recorded a second, third, and fourth, in three starts, and capable of a competitive effort. Fixed odds: $2.70 & $1.10. 





2.09 p.m. R3 2 Ristretto  (4 m Makfi - Espresso Cavallo) - Craig Grylls; got close (second) in the Rating 65 1200 metres on 29 December at New Plymouth (where she won on debut), following a second on 8 December at Waipukurau. Racing well, she looks a strong chance in the $10,000 Rating 65 1200 metres. Fixed odds: $1.70 & $1.05.





3.19 p.m. R5 9 Xplosion  (3 f Showcasing - Xpress) - Craig Grylls; freshened since a spring campaign that included fifth in the Canterbury Belle Stakes (Listed, 1200 metres), she was solid when fourth in the Maiden 2YO & Up 1200 metres on 30 December at Kurow. She is ideally drawn (2) to rate an each way chance in the $10,000 Maiden 1340 metres. Fixed odds: $2.30 & $1.25.





4.29 p.m. R7 8 Zouluminous  (3 f Zoustar - Luminous Harmony) - Craig Grylls; finished third on debut, before a fifth in the Maiden 3YO 1400 metres on 28 November at Tauranga, and third again in the Maiden 3YO 1400 metres on 30 December at Taupo.
