New season, new thread!

It's getting exciting straight away with the G2 Foxbridge Plate this Saturday - even though Kawi had a slight leg injury and unfortunately had to be scratched.

# 7 LISA CHITTICK FOXBRIDGE PLATE
1200m, $100000, WFA, 03:18 p.m.

1 KAWI 58.5 112
2 WILLIE CAZALS 58.5 105
3 AUTHENTIC PADDY 58.5 104
4 FARM BOY 58.5 96
5 SOUTHERN ICON 58.5 96
6 LONGCHAMP 58.5 90
7 SHEZHARDTOCATCH 56.5 91
8 NO MORE TEARS 56.5 78
9 UNDERTHEMOONLIGHT 56.5 77
10 TIGER MOSS 56.5 69
11 SARACINO 51.5 72

Saracino is trying a bit of history - no 3yo has won this race since 1984.

He did it! What an amazing performance. Breaking his maiden in a G2 against older horses, and so dominant.

One of my 2yo fillies (well, I own 1% ) makes her debut in the Wanganui Juvenile Plate on Saturday!

# 1 VESPA STANDING AT WELLFIELD WANGANUI JUVENILE PLATE
790m, $10000, MDN 2YO, 12:22 p.m.
1 1 BEACHWOOD 57.5 47
2 4 BLUSTEEL 57.5 45
3 2 GIFT OF POWER 55.5 47
4 3 SWISS PRECISION 55.5 47
5 5 CAESOUR'S DREAM 55.5 45
6 6 MCCARTNEY 55.5

Fingers crossed. I know Beachwood and Gift Of Power have a bit of hype around them.

Meanwhile, two stakes races for the three-year-olds later in the day. Manhattan Street and Highlad are two really exciting horses clashing in the Guineas, while the G1 winner Luna Rossa resumes in the Fillies' Stakes and should win that very easily.

Nice debut from Swiss Precision, 3rd. She's got a lot to learn.

Great field for Ruakaka's biggest race.

# 7 TAVISTOCK NORTHLAND BREEDERS' STAKES
1200m, $50000, 3YO SW, 04:03 p.m.
1 7 HEROIC VALOUR (AUS) 56.5 77
2 6 WYNDSPELLE 56.5 72
3 8 THE SOULTAKER 56.5 66
4 1 FERRANDO 56.5 63
5 3 MONGOLIAN WOLF (AUS) 56.5 63
6 4 MONGOLIANLIGHTNING 56.5 63
7 2 BARABAS 56.5 62
8 11 O'RACHAEL (AUS) 54.5 71
9 10 ASTARA 54.5 69
10 5 SPINDLE 54.5 63
11 9 CLAIRETHEWAY 54.5

Heroic Valour is clearly the best on class, an unbeaten G1 winner, but I've been impressed by a lot of the others too.

Ferrando won his only start by five, Mongolianlightning won his debut by nine, and Astara broke the national 2yo mile record with her most recent win in April.

That was an amazing win by HV. I think that's his best performance yet - halfway down the stretch he looked like he had no chance.

Kawi's going for his fifth G1, and it's hard to see anyone from the Makfi turning the tables on him here. Rasa Lila's resuming and could make it interesting, though...

Nice win by Francaletta on the undercard. Two out of two now and definitely looks stakes class.

Honey Rider won well in the Gold Trail, but I think the late scratch of Volpe Veloce was pretty significant. She beat Honey Rider in the Castletown last time.

That was unbelievable from Kawi. Overcame an awful trip. His fifth G1, and I would say that is the best performance of his career so far.

Terrible conditions, but that was a nice win for The Soultaker. Seemed to be going backwards, but showed great heart in the stretch.

After getting up at 5am and six hours on the road, I'm at Hastings. The weather is fine, but the damage has been done - the track's officially slow.

Wow, a couple of upsets already in the first three races. This could be an interesting day.
