Preview: Auckland Easter Egg Cup Final
On Saturday 15th April we have the Final of The Easter Egg Cup at Manukau. Stakes are worth $5,000. Below are my top 3 picks.
#2 Kava Blu is in good form at present he ran a nice second last start there was trouble around the first bend and he went on through to get into a nice spot and ran on to get second. He comes up with box 2 on Saturday and if he jumps with them he should get a nice run onto the rail and could be hard to beat. Here is that run for second jumping from box 4.
#1 Gold Class has the ability to take this out. He ran on nicely last week at Cambridge for 4th and with the draw of one on Saturday he should be able to hear the lure and be able to pick the jump at box rise. If he does do this he could lead them for a long way. Let’s go back to that 4th placing at Cambridge jumping from box 6.
#8 Timma Turtle can run a cheeky race from out here. She does have speed and could stay out of trouble. She has the ability to get into the placings. She will be a great each way bet. Let’s go back two starts ago where she ran second to the great American Warrior in The Group 2 Palmerston North Gold Cup jumping from box 1.
Suggested bet 2,1,8,5
