Te Akau has made a couple of big decisions on its team for the Cup Week.
It has withdrawn the talented but inconsistent Wide Awake from the Cup, Swing Note from the Coupland’s Mile and Our Flying Ace from the 2000 Guineas.
Swing Note will be focused on winning the NZ Cup, where he quoted at 14s. Feelar remains the favourite (6s)
Te Akau Shark ($1.70) remans a red hot favourite for the Coupland’s Mile
Madison County is a firm odds favourite for the 2000 Guineas, his price trimmed to $2.70, ahead of The Chosen One ($5s). Both are trained by Murray Baker. Matt Cameron will ride Madison County and Jonathan Riddell will pilot The Chosen One.
