Good track for million dollar Auckland Cup

11:18 am on 4 March 2009

Heavy rain in Auckland last week delayed Derby Day at Ellerslie for 24 hours, but it'll be fine today for the million dollar Auckland Cup at ten to 6 this evening.

A capacity field of 18 runners will line up on a good track, and the early favourites in an open field are Six O'Clock News, the winner of the City of Auckland Cup on New Years Day, the Australian-based stayer Cape Cover, and the Te Awamutu mare Prize Lady, which is bidding for a hattrick of wins in the race.
