Onawing did enough in training at Awapuni this morning to suggest the mare definitely holds claims for the Wellington meeting on Saturday. Fast work took place on the plough (good) and on the heavy No 1 grass.

Onawing used the plough and, with stable apprentice Robert Harris aboard, began from the winning post (1400m), gathering speed to reel off a nice 1000m in 1.6.4, the last 600 in 37.6. The daughter of Mastercraftsman scored a maiden win at Trentham (2100m) in March, but disappointed next time before having a short break. She has had two trials recently to fit her for Saturday's r75 2100m. Egmont entrant Bella Margarita (r65 2100m) had trainer Lucy Tanner in the saddle when completing 1000m in 1.8.4, the last 600 in 40.4. She broke maidens at Tauherenikau last start, and her opposition at Hawera on Sunday is not much better. Al Munroe left 1000m behind in 1.12.4, the last 600 in 40.7, and Winehouse was kept to 1.16.1 and 42.1. Wellington entrant Sophia Magia (r75 f&m 1400m) and Miss Doherty recorded 1.13 even and 43.1.

On the No 1 grass, Kini Marie gathered speed from the 1000m mark to complete her final 800m in 52.1, the last 600 in 38.6, while Thorn Pass and a Rock 'n' Pop maiden came up with 52 even and 39.3. Wellington runner Platinum Command (open 1400m) covered 1000m in 1.6.2, the last 600 in 39.3, and her stablemate Last Chance (r65 1200m) was sent 800m in 53.2, the last 600 in 40.7. Dreams Of Platinum, another in the r65 1200m on Saturday, covered 800m in 53.5, the last 600 in 40.1, and Showing Grace, an acceptor at both Wellington (r75 f&m 1400m) and Egmont (r65 mile), ran 1000m in 1.14.2 and 40.1. The blinkers come off at whatever venue she starts at. Strada Roccia, in at Wellington (r65 1200m), had Hypatia for a partner over 800m in a quiet 56.8, the last 600 in 42.2, and Just You (r65 1200m) clocked 57.2 and 43.1.

Ringo and King Cougar stole the show in semi-final work at Awapuni this morning, when fast gallops took place on the No 1 grass (dead) and on the plough (good).

Ringo and King Cougar used the No 1 grass and worked boldly over 1000m in 1.2.8, the last 600 in 35.8. Ringo rounded off the Anzac Mile (5th) very nicely last start and will back up in Saturday's Rangitikei Gold Cup (1550m). King Cougar scored fresh up on Anzac Day and has trained on well. Platinum Command, who will contest the Rangitikei Cup as well, and dual nominee Platinum Volos turned on the speed over 800m in 47.9, the last 600 in 35.7. They are in fine fettle despite their form on paper. Matthew Eales-trained two-year-olds Atenartin and Derecho were paired over a solid 1000m as well, covering the distance in 1.3.2, the last 600 in 36.6. They are rivals in Saturday's juvenile event over 1200 metres. Dual nominee Master Platinum and Burgundy two-year-old maiden Eva Dawn were on terms throughout 800m in 49.4, the last 600 in 36.7. Eva Dawn has not raced since New Year's Day, but has registered a second and three thirds from her five starts to date.

Master Lincoln, in at Tauherenikau on Thursday (r65 mile), and Anzac Day maiden winner Brahmarahma (Rangitikei) went together over 800m in 49.5, the last 600 in 36.9, while their stablemates Johnny Lincoln (Tauherenikau) and Black Sav (Rangitikei) took 49.9 and 36.6. Last-start Blenheim winner Strada Roccia and unraced Per Incanto mare Sea Ya Later sprinted 600m in 36.1, and Lincoln Honey (Tauherenikau), who was unplaced on debut at Waipukurau, posted 36.8. Tauherenikau runner Showing Grace (r65 mile) was timed 800m in 49.4, the last 600 in 37.1, and was followed in the next gallop by Platinum Edition (mdn hwt 2050m) and Lincoln's Success (mdn 1000m) in 50 seconds even and 37 even. Weare Rocking (Rangitikei) and an Iffraaj gelding stablemate ran 800m in 50.7, the last 600 in 38 even, while Mighty Solomon, in the open 1400m at Te Rapa, and Manhattan Street (Rangitikei) covered 800m, but were timed the last 600m only, in 38.1. Belle Canto (Tauherenikau or Rangitikei) and two-year-old Just Fabulous (Rangitikei) were paired over 1000m in 1.8.8, the last 600 in 39.6, and Dreams Of Platinum (Tauherenikau) went 800m in 53.4, the last 600 in 39.8. The Great Guru (Tauherenikau) did 1000m in 1.9.8 and 40.5.

On the plough, A Niagara filly and an Alamosa filly, both trained by Mike Breslin, sprinted 600m in 36.7, and Bella Margarita, in on Thursday (mdn hwt 2050m), left 1000m behind in 1.4.9, the last 600 in 37.8. She continues to work well. Kini Marie (Tauherenikau), unplaced when resuming at Waipukurau, ran 800m in 49.7, the last 600 in 37.1, and Des De Jeu ended 1000m with 600 in 39.7. Al Munroe cruised over 1000m in 1.9.1, the last 600 in 39.8, and his stablemate Dal Kilchoan was kept to 1.13.3 and 39.5. Unraced pair Suggest Alot (by Any Suggestion) and Rockabye (by Road To Rock), both trained by Mike Breslin, did 1000m in 1.6.6, the last 600 in 40.7. Rosetta, off to Tauherenikau (r65 mile), was not after time over 1000m in 1.10.5, the last 600 in 41.5, and neither was Rangitikei entrant Shared Secrets (r75 1550m), who posted 1.13.6 and 42.8.

Saturday's Rangitikei Gold Cup rivals Platinum Command and Ringo were impressive in separate gallops at Awapuni this morning

Thursday - May 17th

By RON GURNEY

Saturday's Rangitikei Gold Cup rivals Platinum Command and Ringo were impressive in separate gallops at Awapuni this morning. Fast work took place on the No 1 grass (slow) and on the plough (good).

Platinum Command used the No 1 grass and, working on her own, had Robert Hannam aboard when running 1000m in 1.3.7, the last 600 in 36.2. She was revelling in her work. Forget the last-start Travis Stakes failure because she finished fifth in the Easter Hcp the time before that, and two of her eight victories have been over the metric mile at Awapuni, where Saturday's rider Tim Johnson has won on her. Ringo galloped with stablemate Sweepstake (r75 1200m) and they were on terms throughout 800m in 49.6, the last 600 in 36.6. Both horses are fine fettle. Mighty Solomon, the mount of Sam Collett in the open 1400m at Te Rapa, cut out a bold 800m in 48.6, the last 600 in 36.4, while two of his stablemates for Awapuni, Master Platinum (r75 1550m) and Manhattan Street (r75 1200m), came up with 49.9 and 36.8. Kotahi (by Alamosa), unplaced on debut in October, and Keep It Savvy did nice work over 800m in 49.2, the last 600 in 37.2, followed soon after by stablemates Father Lenihan, a last-start winner, and a Savabeel colt in 49.9 and 37.3.

Lincoln Bay and Lincoln Dreamer covered 800m in 50.1, the last 600 in 37.4, and Yin Dragon, who was in great form during the spring, went alone in 52.1 and 39.2. Roc 'N' It posted 53.1 and 39.3, and Black Sav, in Saturday's r65 1400m, ended with 600m in 39.5. Matthew Eales-trained juveniles Atenartin and Derecho, rivals in the first race on Saturday, were kept to 54.1 and 40.4. Derecho will have side winkers on instead of blinkers. Dual acceptor Showing Grace, who will race without blinkers at Awapuni, went a quiet 800m in 57.1, the last 600 in 40.9. Last-start winner Counter Attack and a Thewayyouare gelding ran 1000m in 1.10.7 and 40 even, while Weare Rocking (mdn 1400m) and Strada Roccia, another last-start winner, did 800m in 56.6 and 42.1.

On  the plough, In Dreamland (mdn 1400m) ran 1000m in 1.11.2, the last 600 in 42 even, and a City On A Hill mare from the same stable took 1.15 even and 42.9. Passing Glance and an Ocean Park filly were kept to 800m in 59.5, the last 600 in 42.4, while Belle Canto (mdn 1400m) and Miss Doherty (r65 1400m) recorded 58.5 and 43.5. Miss Doherty will race in blinkers on Saturday.

Veteran mare Itsagem justified a trip to Rotorua this week with a very pleasing final trial at Awapuni this morning

Thursday - May 10th

By RON GURNEY

Veteran mare Itsagem justified a trip to Rotorua this week with a very pleasing final trial at Awapuni this morning. Fast work took place on the No 1 grass (dead) and on the plough (good), though fog prevented the timing of some gallops.

Itsagem used the No 1 grass, covering 800m in 50.5, the last 600 in 38 even, and she deserves some respect in the r75 1400m on Saturday, with Sam Spratt the rider. The eight-year-old has improved a ton since resuming on Anzac Day and looks in tremendous order. The only other horses to be timed on the No 1 grass were Lincoln's Success, unplaced in three starts so far, and a Road To Rock gelding, who went together over 800m in 53.2, the last 600 in 39.4.

On the plough, Kini Marie had stable apprentice Danielle Hirini aboard over 800m in 49.3, the last 600 in 36.1, and she was unplaced when resuming at Waipukurau last Thursday. Her stablemate Lincoln Honey, unplaced on debut the same day, skipped over 800m in 50 seconds even, the last 600 in 36.8, and Swiss Elle, who has not raced since Christmas, took 51.3 and 37.1. She will resume over 1000 metres at Tauherenikau next Thursday. An Alamosa filly and a Niagara filly, both trained by Mike Breslin, sprinted 600m in 40.3, while Taranaki chance Salamanca (open 1200m) posted 41 even. He will carry just 54.5kg with Zinjete Moki engaged to ride. Glide Queen (by Alamosa), who debuts in the maiden 2yo 1200m on Saturday after a recent Foxton trial victory, warmed up from the 800m (57) to sprint home the last 600 in 41.3, and her stablemate Banstead (r65 1800m) clocked 57.1 and 41.2.

The Lisa Latta-trained pair of Itsagem and Just You spear-headed some impressive gallops from that stable at Awapuni this morning

By RON GURNEY

The Lisa Latta-trained pair of Itsagem and Just You spear-headed some impressive gallops from that stable at Awapuni this morning. Fast work took place on the outside of the No 1 grass (dead) and on the plough (good).

Itsagem, in at Rotorua (r75 1400m), and Just You (Woodville) used the No 1 grass, renowned for its quick times, and together reeled off 800m in 46.4, the last 600 in 35.3. They don't get much better than that here. Itsagem trialled nicely last month and resumed at Awapuni on Anzac Day (6th), but she has improved out of sight in recent weeks and looks in tremendous order. Just You is not racing well, but continues to work solidly, and he could surprise at long odds. Travis Stakes runner-up China Star (Rotorua Cup) and Miss Oahu (Woodville) certainly lost no kudos with their strong 800m in 46.6, the last 600 in 35.5, while Woodville runners Dashing Ruby (mdn mile) and Platinum Edition (mdn 2100m) came up with a very pleasing 47.8 and 35.9. Master Platinum and two-year-old filly Platinum Rapper covered 800m in 47.9, the last 600 in 35.6, and Bella Margarita (Woodville) had trainer Lucy Tanner aboard over a nice 1000m in 1.2.3, the last 600 in 36.9. Sweepstake (Rotorua Stakes) and dual meeting nominee Jessiegee were paired over 1000m in 1.2.1, the last 600 in 37.3, while Lincoln Raider (Rotorua) and Platinum Volos left 800m behind in 49 even, the last 600 in 37.3. Dal Kilchoan, who has not raced since January, ran 1000m in 1.7 even, the last 600 in 38.8, and resumes at Woodville (mdn mile), while Rotorua entrant Leeds (r85 1560m) was timed 800m in 51.2, the last 600 in 38.6.

On the plough, ultra-consistent Stunning (Woodville) had Robert Hannam in the saddle when covering 1000m in 1.4.9, the last 600 in 37.8, followed soon after by Taranaki runners Banstead (r65 1800m) and Derecho (mdn 2yo), who recorded 1.5.1 and 37.2. Salamanca (open 1200m) and Son Of Surf, entered for two meetings, matched strides over 800m in 50.8, the last 600 in 37.8, and Belladita, with the blinkers on at Woodville, came in from the 1200m peg (1.20.6) to complete the final 800m in 51.7 and 37.1. Unraced Alamosa filly Glide Queen, who debuts in the maiden two-year-old 1200m at Taranaki, warmed up from the 800m (53.9) to run home her last 600 in 37.7. She won over 850 metres at the Foxton trials last month. Wafer again took the eye with her 1000m in 1.3.4, the last 600 in 38.5, and, despite it being a long time between drinks, this mare is close to winning form once again. She was entered for both Rotorua and Taranaki. Her stablemates Weare Rocking and a Rip Van Winkle filly covered 800m in 51.4, the last 600 in 38 even, and Veracious clocked 53.7 and 38.8. Woodville runners Sligo (mdn 1400m) and Sophia Magia (r65 1400m) were kept to 1000m in 1.9.3, the last 600 in 39.8, while unraced four-year-old Suggest Alot (by Any Suggestion) and unraced three-year-old Rockabye (by Road To Rock) ran 800m in 54.7 and 40.5. Rockabye is a half-brother to stable star Heni. Kings Kite (Woodville) had trainer Stephen Beatson aboard over 1200m in 1.27.1, the last 600 in 42.5, and Winehouse (Woodville) was given an easy 1000m in 1.16.5, the last 600 in 45 even. She races in blinkers on Thursday.

Thursday - May 3rd

By RON GURNEY

Ultra-consistent maiden Stunning and Platinum Edition were in brilliant form at Awapuni this morning. Fast work took place on the No 1 grass (dead), on the plough (good) and on the sand. Stunning and Platinum Edition used the No 1 grass and were paired over an impressive 800m, scorching along early to record 47.7 for the whole journey, the last 600 in 36.1.

Their stablemates Keep It Savvy and Sunday's Wanganui entrant Last Chance (r65 1200m) were little inferior with 800m in 48.5, the last 600 in 36.6, while Temptress (mdn 1200m) and Platinum Volos posted 48.7 and 36.4. Red Red Robin, who is running fair races, did a quiet round and gathered speed from the 1200m mark on the second circuit to gallop 1000m in 1.3 even, the last 600 in 37.7, which was full of merit. Father Lenihan, who won a Foxton trial (850m) last month, was kept to 800m in 53.4, the last 600 in 38.7. He resumes in the maiden 1200m at Wanganui on Sunday.

On the plough, Paddy Bourke easily took the time honours with his 1000m in 1.1.1, the last 600 in 37.5, and Bella Margarita did well to record 1.3.4 and 37.4. Belladita and Winehouse went together over 1200m in 1.21.6, coming in from the 800m in 50 seconds even, the last 600 in 37 even. Last-start winner King Cougar and Ringo covered 800m in 51.2, the last 600 in 37.1. Dreams Of Platinum and a Sweet Orange gelding left 800m behind in 53 even, the last 600 in 37.3, while Classic Touch and Wanganui entrant Garment (mdn 1200m) clocked 52.4 and 38.6. Wafer, who was one of the last to use the plough, did a quiet round before speeding up on the second circuit to run 1000m in 1.3.4, the last 600 in 38.9. An Alamosa gelding and an Alamosa filly, two year-olds with Mike Breslin, sprinted 600m in 38.6, while a Darci Brahma filly and a Per Incanto filly, two-year-olds with Lisa Latta, ran 800m in 55.4, the last 600 in 39.4.

Wanganui runner Deep Blue (r65 mile) had trainer Gene Andrew aboard over 1000m in 1.9.6, the last 600 in 39 even, while a Burgundy gelding and a Road To Rock gelding, both trained by Peter Didham, recorded 1.10.6 and 39.8. Original Gangster and a Savabeel-Karla Bruni two-year-old worked over 800m, the last 600 in 39.4, and Exhibit, balloted out at Wanganui (r65 1200m), ended with 39.9. She will race without blinkers  on Sunday. Tonsberg (by Fully Fledged) and Proletariat (by Niagara), both first-starters at Wanganui, were timed 1000m in 68.7, the last 600 in 40.2. Tonsberg (mdn 1360m) is trained by Deborah Parry, while Proletariat (mdn 3yo mile) , who won a Foxton trials last month, is with Ashley Meadows. La Jungles, in the amateur riders' race on Sunday (mdn 2060m), was timed 1000m in 1.9.4, the last 600 in 41.4.

Rip Into Ghia and The Great Guru drew plenty of attention for the Waipukurau meeting on Thursday with a first-class final trial at Awapuni this morning. Fast work took place on the No 1 grass (dead-slow) and on the plough (good).

Rip Into Ghia (mdn 1400m) and The Great Guru (r75 mile) were paired over an impressive 1000m in 1.1.2, coming the final 800m in a smart 47.6, the last 600 in 36.8. Not to be denied, their stablemates Father Lenihan and Temptress covered 800m in 48.6, the last 600 in 36.3, a gallop that had just as merit. Sligo (mdn 1400m) and Rosetta (r75 mile) warmed up from the 1000m (1.7 even) to run the last 600 in 37.2, while Black Sav, who was a double nominee for Thursday, and Last Chance were at a good clip from the 900m, being timed the final 800m in 49.9, the last 600 in 37.2. Secret Allure and Miss Oahu were on terms throughout 800m in 50.8, the last 600 in 37.7, while Dashing Ruby (mdn mile) and Mighty Solomon came up with 49.7 and 38.6. Lincoln Fury (mdn 2yo 1200m), unplaced on debut a few weeks ago, and Lincoln's Success recorded 51.6 and 38.8. Dal Kilchoan worked over 1200m, being timed from the 1000m in 1.7 even, the last 600 in 39.2, and his stablemate Dal Sir Tee, who races at Waipukurau (r65 2100m), posted 1.8.5 and 39.6.

On the plough, Jessiegee and Sweepstake were outstanding over 800m in 47.7, the last 600 in 35.5, while Master Platinum and Lincoln Dreamer came up with 52.1 and 37.7. Waipukurau debutante Lincoln Honey (by Excelebration) ended 800m with 600m in 37.7. Got The Call (mdn 2yo 1200m) from the Gary Vile stable and a Niagara gelding sprinted 600m in 38.1, while an Echoes Of Heaven gelding trained by Jeff Lynds ran 800m in 54.6, the last 600 in 39.6. Recent trial winner Glide Queen (Alamosa-Tai Chi Queen), who is trained by Matthew Eales, was timed 800m in 56.6, the last 600 in 39.7, and Miss Doherty (r65 1400m) had Belle Canto (mdn 1200m) for a partner over a steady 1000m in 1.10.6, the last 600 in 39.8. Atenartin, in the maiden 2yo 1200m on Thursday, and an Indy King two-year-old filly from that stable sprinted 600m in 40.1.

Secret Allure, Authentic Charm, Rip Into Ghia and Last Chance, all members of the Lisa Latta stable, were impressive at Awapuni this morning. Fast work took place on the No 1 grass (dead), on the plough (good) and on the sand.

Secret Allure and Authentic Charm used the No 1 grass and were able to cut out a strong 800m in 46.6, the last 600 in 35 seconds even. Not to be denied, Rip Into Ghia and Last Chance went together over the same assignment in 46.7, the last 600 in 35 seconds as well. Hawke's Bay entrant Showing Grace (r65 mile), who will have blinkers added to the gear on Saturday, had an un-named youngster alongside over a 600m dash in 38 even, and Temptress covered 800m in 49.6, the last 600 in 37.4. Lincoln Bay was sent 800m in 52.6, the last 600 in 38.1, while his stablemates Kotahi (by Alamosa), unplaced on debut in the spring, went together in 52.4 and 38.2.

On the plough, Hawke's Bay runner Derecho (mdn 2yo 1200m), who will race in blinkers, was timed 800m in 54.7, the last 600 in 37.9, and De Gaulle left 1000m behind in 1.6.2, the last 600 in 38.9. Higher Power (mdn 2yo 1000m) had an Echoes Of Heaven gelding for a partner over 800m in 52.7, the last 600 in 38.1, while an Alamosa gelding and a Rip Van Winkle filly, both trained by Mike Breslin, sprinted 600m in 38 even. Salamanca, the mount of Sam Spratt in the open 1200m at Te Rapa on Saturday, was kept to 800m in 57.8, the last 600 in 42.6.

On the sand, Exhibit did a quiet round and a half before running home the last 600 in 42.2.

China Star, who tackles the Group 2 Travis Stakes (2000m) at Te Rapa on Saturday, and big improver Johnny Lincoln were in sparkling form at Awapuni this morning. Fast work took place on the plough (good), the No 1 grass (dead) and the sand.

China Star and Hastings runner Johnny Lincoln (r65 mile) used the plough and were at a good clip early when covering 1000m in 1.1.8, the last 600 in 37.1. Both horses have trained on well, especially China Star, who won the Manawatu Breeders' Stakes last start. Mike Breslin-trained Kini Marie, who has not raced since last winter, skipped over 800m in 49.5, the last 600 in 37 even, while Mighty Solomon and maiden Platinum Rapper went together in 50 seconds even and 37.1. Platinum Rapper (by Makfi), unplaced on debut at Rotorua two weeks ago, is in at Te Rapa on Saturday (2yo 1200m) and is a half-sister to Platinum Command. Lincoln Star and Lincoln Raider, two more heading to Te Rapa (3yo mile), were on terms over 800m in 51.4, the last 600 in 37.8, while Myrtle and a Niagara gelding, both trained by David Goldsbury, recorded 51.8 and 37.6. Friday's Blenheim entrants Hypatia (mdn 1950m) and Strada Roccia (mdn 1400m) wasted little time early over 1000m in 1.3.2, the last 600 in 38.7, followed soon after by Lydia Pickford's pairing of Over Think and That's Funny in 1.4.8 and 38.9.
