Trentham racing tips

Race 1. (10:15) The Oaks Stud 3YO (1200m)

#1 – Platinum Attack @ $4.20

Platinum Attack comes off three consecutive wins and they have all been impressive.

The Lisa Latta-trained gelding won at Trentham last start against a similar field, so there’s no reason to jump off his back.

The each-way odds are well worth snapping up.

Race 2. (10:50) Resonant BM75 (1200m)

#4 – Lord Donovan @ $7.50

Lord Donovan showed his class last preparation, and although yet to win this time in, he’s classy.

The John Wheeler-trained sprinter has yet to fire in three runs at Trentham, but he’s a much better horse than he used to be.

With Michael McNab riding, we expect him to be tough to beat.

Race 4. (12:04) Higgins Concrete Manawatu Classic (2100m)

#1 – Just as Sharp @ $2.30

Just as Sharp owns three wins and three placings from nine starts, and he comes off a fourth in the New Zealand Derby behind Orchestral.

That form has been franked with a Group 1 win in Australia, and dropping to 2100m only helps his cause.

He’s the class runner of this field.

Race 5. (12:46) Martin Collins Manawatu Breeders’ Stakes (2100m)

#8 – Diss is Dramatic @ $3.80

Looking for consecutive wins is Diss is Dramatic, who was too tough for them in heavy conditions at Tauranga.

She’s a past winner at Trentham, and it could be a big day for ownership group Go Racing, who own the favourite in the Group 1 feature.

Money is coming for her, which isn’t surprising.


Race 7. (13:56) Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) – GROUP 1

Pukekohe racing tips

Race 1. (10:30) Stella Artois 3YO (1600m)

#5 – Ethereal Star @ $2.80

Ethereal Star is long overdue a win, and she’s much better than a one-win filly.

The daughter of Snitzel runs her best races at Pukekohe with four starts for a win and two second placings.

This is her race to win, and she’s our top pick.

Race 3. (11:40) Shaw’s Wire Ropes Maiden (1600m)

#3 – Northeasterly @ $4.00

Northeasterly is better for his debut run where he finished second behind Rita Bonita.

Having that run under his belt is ideal, and the three-year-old son of The Autumn Sun can handle this field on Saturday.

Kozzi Asano is riding well, and punters get each-way odds.

Race 4. (12:17) Ellerslie Events BM65 (1600m)

#2 – Hasstobeawinner @ $3.40

Bet365Best Bookmaker for NZ!Join Now

Hasstobeawinner has been around the mark throughout his career, including a win and six placings.

The four-year-old son of Vadamos didn’t handle the heavy conditions at Tauranga, and he was much better when placing at Ellerslie.

The odds are getting short, but he’s worth backing.

Race 6. (13:29) Dunstan Horsefeeds Handicap (1300m)

#4 – Rudyard @ $4.60

Bet365Best Bookmaker for NZ!Join Now

Rudyard is already a two-time winner this preparation, including two starts back at Ellerslie.

The four-year-old son of Charm Spirit is a five-time winner overall, and he doesn’t need to improve much to win this race.

We’re happy to have him in our selections.
