Te Akau Racing has two horses entered on Wednesday August 11 at Riccarton.

Weather: overcast, track: Heavy11, rail: true. No rain forecast raceday.


12.32 p.m. R3 2 Bak Da Master  (7 g Mastercraftsman - Bak Da Princess) - Michael Roustoby (a1); had good hurdles form before winning the Maiden Steeplechase (3200m) here on Saturday and steps up in distance for the $20,000 0-2 Steeplchase (4150m). Against a similar field, he should go well if he enjoys the back up.

3.29 p.m. R8 5 Richard of Yorke  (10 g Oasis Dream - Cascata) - Michael Roustoby; enhanced a terrific track record winning the Restricted Open Hurdle (3100m) on 1 August at Te Aroha, making it two from his last three. He meets a couple of strong opponents in the $75,000 Hospitality New Zealand Canterbury 131stGrand National Hurdles (4200m), but brings the right form to prove competitive. Fixed odds: $5.50 & $1.60.
