The full preview of the seven race card for Ruakaka is here and an update will be posted by 11 a.m. with any head to heads etc.
Ruakaka is often an on-pace track and a horse in the second race looks well placed to get a soft sit 2nd outer and win.
5.Sympathique led all the way here in January 2020 in an official time of 1.33.45 but it was actually 1.36.97 but she did show good fighting qualities and did so again when leading and was run down late by Laurant here over 1400m. Last start she stepped to 2100m, began well and got a bit keen with the slower tempo 3rd outer, got pocketed 300m out and when out fought on strongly for a distant third. When she ran second here behind Laurant was back at the jump and wide and used petrol up to get 2nd outer sharing a good tempo. She was run down over the last 50 metres. This time, she maps to get a soft sit outside Savappiel and could kick on these and be the one to catch in a sprint home. RP $3.20, $3.60 FF
2.Laurant fresh up started in an R74 race at Ellerslie, much harder than this. She was a bit awkwardly away and got back but ran on well widest in the straight. That would have cleaned her up nicely.
6.Savappiel – her only placing was at Tauranga in an average maiden. Caught wide fresh up and faded out but was at big odds. Drawn to lead but should be covered by at least 3 runners here.
