Heavy track main concern

Dynamo (Hayden Tinsley) scoring at New Plymouth.

Dynamo (Hayden Tinsley), pictured scoring at New Plymouth, will be back in the central districts tomorrow.

Dynamo may not have everything in his favour at Awapuni tomorrow, but he could still make a serious impression.

The northern visitor will strike a field of moderate quality when he makes his open class debut in the John Turkington Forestry/Wai Pine Holdings Bulls Country Cup.

“He hasn’t raced for two months and it’s going to be a Heavy 11 track,” said his Cambridge trainer Brendan Hawtin.

“He has gone well in a fresh state in the past and I am quite happy with him, but he could be found out by the track. That’s the only reservation I have.”

Hawtin said he had been tempted to head south by the $30,000 stake on offer.

“The other option was a Rating 75 race over 1400 metres at Te Aroha next Wednesday where he would be running for $8000,” he said. “We thought we might as well run for a bit of extra dough and on his day he’s up to getting a bit of the prize.”

Dynamo, to be ridden by the promising apprentice Tim Johnson, has won four times from 15 appearances.

The Fully Fledged five-year-old has also proved himself racing left-handed way with a victory at New Plymouth last campaign.
