Te Akau Melbourne Saturday Preview

Date: 27 Aug 2021


Te Akau Racing has one horse entered on Saturday 28 August at Caulfield (Melbourne).

Weather: fine, track: Soft5, rail: true. No rain forecast.


5.30 p.m. (NZ time) R6 1 Probabeel  (5 m Savabeel - Far Fetched) - Damian Lane; was brilliant fresh-up in the Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes (Gr. 3, 1200m) and recorded her third Group One in Australia, with a gigantic effort in the Futurity Stakes (Gr. 1, 1400m), both in February at Caulfield. She spelled in April after finishing second in the Queen of the Turf Stakes (Gr. 1, 1600m) at Randwick. Following two trials, she resumes in the $200,000 W.W. Cockram Stakes (Gr. 3, 1200m). Carrying equal top weight (60kg) and drawn outside barrier (10) are imposing factors, but she has sheer class to act fresh and rate a top three chance. NZ TAB fixed odds: $2.00 & $1.20.
