Doiknowyou is on track for the Kiwifruit Cup at Tauranga.

Tauranga will be the next port of call for the in-form Cambridge winter stayer Doiknowyou.

“He’ll go for the Kiwifruit Cup next,” said trainer Ben Ropiha referring to the Orora Kiwi Packaging-sponsored $40,000 event tomorrow week.

“After that I’ll look at freshening him up and we might head down south for the Winter Cup. That’s usually quite a testing mile and can suit a 2000-metre horse.”

Doinknowyou, who won over 1600 metres three starts ago, finished runner-up in the Gr.3 Rotorua Cup before his last-start third in the Cornwall Handicap at Ellerslie.

“In hindsight we should have let him lead and roll along,” said Ropiha.

“We’ll be inclined to do that in future if it’s a slow pace. He needs a genuinely run race.”
