Bet of the week - 23 July
Te Rapa July 24, R3 Palm Springs: Has the form as well as being the day’s omen bet, carrying the Vela colours in the race dedicated to former Te Rapa trainer Laurie Laxon. Followed a Rating 74 sprint win here last month with a sound open grade fourth at last Te Rapa meeting.
New Plymouth July 24, R4 Cetus: What’s to stop him completing a hat-trick? On-speed style should suit this track and the claim will help again.
Oamaru July 25, R3 Chilly Filly: Followed 1200m maiden win with brave second over 1400m last time. Back to 1200m with Lisa Allpress up will take some beating.
