Weekly review ending 30 April 2023

The Fearless One Race 6 Te Rapa 29 April

After getting back he sustained a strong finish to run third, running the best closing sectionals by far. He is a very good stayer and doesn’t need much racing to get him ready to win. One to follow with confidence.

Fellini Race 2 Te Rapa 29 April

From behind midfield he came home in the quickest sectionals. His wide draw didn’t help and it was his first go over 1600 metres. Mark Walker shouldn’t have too much trouble placing him next up

Screaming Eagle Race 4 Te Rapa 29 April

From the wide draw he worked over to lead and set an even pace. He was only run down late and back in R65 class next up, will be much harder to run down.

Stallone Race 7 Hawera 26 April

This was a good run fresh up coming home nicely for second, wide out on the track, in the fastest last 400 metres. He will improve with that and is one to follow throughout the wet months.

Stevie Nix Race 3 Phar Lap Raceway 27 April

The addition of the Norton Bit allowed her to settle well in the big field and charge home with a sustained finish for third. She ran the strongest last 200 metres and looks a definite improver.

Brookbourne Race 4 Rotorua 28 April

After getting back in an on-pace race he was putting in some good strides late for fifth. He ran the fastest last 200m and was strong through the line. He looks like a definite improver.

Wewillrock Race 3 Hastings 29 April

This was win four from ten starts and the way he won means there are more wins in store. The race time was above average and it was only his second run back. One to follow with confidence this season.

Kopua Race 5 Hastings 29 April

With three runs under his belt now he should be ready to win. He closed off in strong sectionals but battled the last bit. He may be better suited to 1400 metres.

Extortion Race 9 Hastings 29 April 

From a wide draw he got back but powered home for third in in the quickest last 600 and 200 metres. He looks primed for a win over 1600 metres next up.

Kid Roc Race 7 Wingatui 30 April 

After setting an even pace he kicked clear and was run down late for second. There was a gap to third and he looks on track to gain another well deserved win.
