After finishing a close second behind Kolding in the Epsom Handicap at Randwick last Saturday, Te Akau Shark will now begin preparations for the Cox Plate.
Te Akau Shark’s owner David Ellis confirmed the news that he would head to the Cox Plate 2019 after pulling up well from his run in the Epsom.
Trainer Jamie Richards said on Sunday that a step up to 2000 metres wouldn’t trouble the boom horse.
“I think the way Te Akau Shark finished off in the Epsom, a step up to 2000 metres won’t be a problem so that opens a number of avenues for him.”
Te Akau Shark is currently a $15 chance in Cox Plate odds with online bookmaker Sportsbet.
