CAPTION: London Express completed a winining treble for Sharrock.
Allan Sharrock and his hughly talented apprentice Hazel Schofer
scored an early double at New Plymouth today.
The second of them scored a stunning win, Akerra finishing strongly after missing the start by five lengths.
Tavi Mac, sidelined by injury, will never win a beauty contest, sprinted hard to take the first from Maison Roxanne.
Sharrock rounded off a winning treble when London Express proved a class above stablemate Mars Bar and the rest.
The wonderfully consistent Secret Squirrel fell victim to Sharrock mauling in the fourth (Collinstreet).
Sorrentina was in trouble 600m out but Danielle Johson lifted her superbly to victory in one of the main races at Ellerslie.
She looked like she would run a place at the home turn but hit the line 200m out
“I was very happy with that,” trainer Stephen Marsh said of his 3yo.
Sorrentina would now chase the Soliloquy before heading down South.
The claimer Rebecca Scott came with the last run on Lupelani to bump off favourite Midnight Run.
