Te Akau Flemington Sunday Preview


Te Akau Racing has two horses entered on Sunday 24 September at Flemington (Victoria). 

Weather: fine, track: Good4, rail: out 14 metres. No rain forecast. 


7:55 p.m. (NZ time) R7 3 Lord Dynastic (4 g Almanzor – Meir) – Michael Dee; he rounded off belatedly from rear when resuming in the Benchmark 84 1300 metres on 13 September at Sandown, and contests the $50,000 Benchmark 78 1630 metres. He spelled following the New Zealand Derby (Gr. 1, 2400m), is a former Karaka Million 2YO (Restricted Listed, 1200m) winner, and receives the opportunity to improve further up in trip. NZ TAB Fixed odds: $26.00 & $6.00.

8:30 p.m. (NZ time) R8 5 Savoir Faire (4 g Savabeel – Etiquette) – Michael Dee; he resumed with a good finish for third in the Rating 65 1200 metres on 26 August at Te Rapa, and contests the $50,000 Benchmark 70 1420 metres. A Maiden winner over 2000 metres, he spelled in March following the New Zealand Derby (Gr. 1, 2400m), having finished third in the Waikato Guineas (Gr. 2, 2000m). He is ideally drawn (3), is a consistent performer, and is capable of bold first-up showing in Australia. NZ TAB Fixed odds: $21.00 & $6.00.
