Wait A Sec has enjoyed a smooth build-up to Sunday’s AFFCO NZ Ltd Wairoa Cup ahead of another Group One challenge.

“He’s been here since last Sunday and he’s done well, we’re very happy with him,” said Grant Cullen, who trains in partnership with Guy Lowry.

“He galloped between races yesterday and went over 1000 metres, quickening up for the last 600. He stretched out nicely and he’s on target for the Auckland Cup.”

The Gr. 1 Livamol Classic winner is coming off an unplaced run in the Gr. 1 Herbie Dyke Stakes on a rain-affected Te Rapa track.

“Johnathan (Parkes) said he was floundering all the way so we’ve just put a line through that run,” Cullen said.

The stable also has Savvy Dreams in tomorrow's Gr. 1 Haunui Farm WFA Classic at Hastings.

“Her work has been very good and we’re happy to be on our home track, she goes well there,” Cullen said.
