Te Akau Flemington Saturday Preview

Te Akau Racing has two horses entered on Saturday 8 June at Flemington (Melbourne).  


Weather: overcast, track: Soft5, rail: out 8 metres. No rain forecast.

2:25 p.m. (NZ) ~ 12:25 p.m. (Vic) R2 2 Puketiro (4 m Savabeel – Matakana) – Daniel Stackhouse; she produced a bold effort for fifth in the Benchmark 78 Fillies & Mares 1200 metres here on 18 May, and contests the A$80,000 Benchmark 78 Fillies & Mares 1400 metres. Impressive winning five of her 10 starts, she is suited stepping up in distance, and rates a top four chance. NZ TAB fixed odds: $19.00 & $5.00.

4:45 p.m. (NZ) ~ 2:45 p.m.(Vic) R6 3 Midnight Blue (7 g So You Think – Midnight Special) – Daniel Stackhouse; he set terms in front when winning the A$150,000 Benchmark 100 2000 metres on 4 May easily at Caulfield, also with Stackhouse aboard, and contests the corresponding event. Up 2.5kg to carry 58kg, he showed capability last time and is presented with the opportunity to continue his good form, albeit in a strong and even field. NZ TAB Fixed odds: $13.00 & $4.00.
