It's a rematch of last Friday's major NZ Breeders' Stakes place getters in this evening's main Hatrick 520m event (Race 10), as the first three finishers in that $45,420 Group 1 final are clashing again.

Bigtime Tears secured victory when she won the race into the all important first turn, and from then she was never challenged as she scorched to her 29.84s win.

It was a searing gallop by the Lisa Cole-prepared youngster, with her smart time meaning nothing else in the strong field could get close, as her eventual 2.75 length winning margin suggests.

She achieved her biggest career win from the Trap 7; this evening she'll be hopping away from Trap 4.


Once again Bigtime Paddy was bold when he gamely chased home his kennelmate for yet another Group 1 placing.

He had to work hard after jumping from Trap 8 then and he'll have to do likewise from the seven trap in this event.

Idol Tom was again sighted charging home late for his NZ Breeders' third placing.

His slow starts continues to harm his winning claims, although his Trap 2 draw here can assist him.

Bigtime Wendle, fifth in the Breeders', is likely to move away from the rail after exiting from Trap 1.

By doing so, she is likely to present the Marcie Flipp-trained Idol Tom with a clear early racing passage, which can see him positioning up closer than normal to the early pace.

Cole will load away her recent open class graduate Ask King Jeff into Trap 8 here.

He'll be relying on his known strong finish to feature at the business end.

Arden Emgrand is returning to open class racing for Angela Turnwald after his bold pair of recent C4 wins, while the Matt Roberts-prepared Quistis Bale is a proven chaser at the top level, although she has drawn poorly in Trap 5.

Wanganui GRC president Brian Marsh is taking the trek north to the Manukau Stadium on Sunday with his brave NZ Breeders' Stakes fourth place getter Tyson's Quest, heading up to contest the $16,000 New Zealand Sires Produce Stakes (Race 10) at Group 2 level over 527m.

His charge has drawn nicely in Trap 1, from where he can deliver a competitive effort.
However, Marsh's partner Suzie Kite has drawn poorly with her chaser Rowdy Ruby, who is required to leap from Trap 5.
