Latest NZ Cup and Dominion Trot Rankings
Republican Party has been one of the big movers in the latest NZ Cup and Show week rankings.
Not only did his win in Friday's Group 2 Canterbury Classic at Addington seal him a place in the IRT New Zealand Cup it also saw his ranking climb seven places, from 12th to fifth.
The Dalgety-trained pacer and champion driver Blair Orange made perfect use of the passing lane to head off Cup favourite Akuta and Macandrew Aviator.
Macandrew Aviator's third position also guaranteed him a spot in the Cup field at Addington on Tuesday, November 14. He climbs nine places in the rankings, from 17th to six.
The top four rankings, headed by dual champion Copy That, remain the same, with 2020 New Zealand Cup winner Self Assured dropping two to seven.
The rankings for country's biggest trotting race the Renwick Farms Dominion three days later on Show Day, November 17 remain largely unchanged this week with Harold Smith improving three places to 15th after his second in the Brickworks Handicap Trot on Friday night.
