FEATURE RACE RUNNERS AT FLEMINGTON

We have four runners at home on Saturday in feature races at Flemington with Tofane, Sound, Aktau and Hang Man racing on an extremely competitive Group 1 day.

Hang Man is the first to go in race three, the Paris Lane Stakes at Listed level over 1400m with Jye McNeil to ride.

It is the first start this preparation for Hang Man, who is looking in great shape according to Mike Moroney.

“He looks terrific, it’s a pity he didn’t draw a bit better but if he begins then I’d be hoping he can settle midfield with cover,” Moroney said.

“He looks sensational, he’d win a show class the way he presents and his work on Tuesday was excellent.

“It’s a strong race as you would expect but if he can get away on terms and then enjoy a nice run I’m expecting him to run well.”

Tofane runs in race four, the Gilgai Stakes over the straight 1200m with Damien Oliver riding.

“I can’t fault her and she’s done particularly well since her first-up run,” Moroney said.

“She couldn’t be any better for a second-up run, the one concern I have is the tempo of the race - ideally they will go a gallop and she can flow into it rather than it develop into a 600m sprint home.

“I’m extremely happy with her and with ordinary luck I think she can win.”

Sound is in race six, the Group 3 The Bart Cummings over 2510m and drawn ideally in barrier three with Jamie Kah in the saddle.

“He’s got a few things in his favour and I think he can settle in the first half dozen,” Moroney said. “He’s relaxing a lot better now and he’s in the best shape we’ve ever had him.

“His last piece of work was terrific, he looks magnificent and we’re trying to get that ticket into the Melbourne Cup.”

Aktau (pictured) rounds out the day in race seven, the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes over 2000m with Daniel Moor to ride from barrier five.

“I’m extremely happy with him and he’s drawn to get a better run than he did last start,” Moroney said.

“Daniel has been in to ride the horse and they are getting on well together.

“He’s not well treated by the weights today but I’m sure he will run well and if he can finish in the first six then that will have him spot on into the Caulfield Cup.”
