Thursday at Ashburton,

We head to Ashburton tomorrow with four runners for the meeting with the track currently rated dead 6. So Amused starts our day off in race one the mdn f&m 1600m. She finished into 5th over 1400m at Riccarton last week and will appreciate the step up in distance and tongue tie on. She does jump from barrier 13 but has the services of Tina this week but will need some luck from the gate. Onto race 6 in the 65 2200m with Kudos de Sothys also from a wide draw. He did a bit of work last start in a fresh state so will be better for the run and has Shankar Muniandy to do the riding. Our second runner in that race is Second Thought who blew them away at Riccarton last start. She carries a bit more weight this week and steps up to the 2200m with Krishna to retain the ride. Heading to race 8 with Feelin’ Fancy for the 74 1400m. She hasn’t had a lot of luck to date and cops the outside gate this week. Blinkers are on and Krishna will take the mount

 Ashburton tomorrow
Looking for two in a row Second Thought left them chasing at Riccarton last start. She relished the 2000m and don’t think the extra trip will worry her at all. Drawn nicely at 4 and if she jumps cleanly should get a lovely run throughout.
