Saturday 17 December preview below

The weather forecast for Te Rapa is rain, possibly heavy, from mid morning. And for Trentham, rain from afternoon. So I’ve made sure the horses below all like heavy tracks. Most races are open and bookie benefits.

Bet of the Day Te Rapa Race 2 3.White Noise $2.50 FF Missed

Value Bet of the Day Te Rapa Race 9 9.Cascatella $8.50 FF Missed

Multi of the Day Trentham Race 1 1.McKenzie $2.10 FF and Race 2 3.White Noise $2.50 FF  $10 returns $52.50 ( Back McKenzie first for a win as it is a Bonus Back bet up to $50 )

Te Rapa

Race 2

Confidence: 3/5

3.White Noise won well here over 1400m and and raced well in Australia over 1600 and 1800. Gets 2kgs off, will relish a wet track and should get an uncontested lead. RP $2.20, $2.80 FF as at 2.00 pm Thursday.

Race 8 

Confidence: 2/5

12.Tu Meke Potai won nicely fresh up then was a very unlucky fifth next up when he had nowhere to go till the last 150 metres. With the light weight he will be hard to beat. RP $7, $11 FF

Race 9


9.Cascatella has run the fastest sectionals in both of her runs this campaign and hit the line very strongly. The step to 1600m looks ideal and a heavy track shouldn’t be problem. RP $5, $8.50 FF


Race 1


1.McKenzie looked very good at the trials when drawing wide, showed good early speed to lead and won under a hold. He is a very nice galloper and has an ideal action for a soft or heavy track. RP $1.90, $2.20 FF

Race 7

Confidence:3/5 1st $2.20

8.Darci La Bella always had them covered at Pukekohe and she is right at the peak of her form. Maps to get a good run and any easing of the track will only help her. RP $2.40, $3.00 FF as at Friday 9.54 a.m.
