9/11/2017 Folkswood all set for Emirates Stakes

The Charlie Appleby-trained Folkswood (Exceed And Excel) will look to continue his excellent form in Australia when he lines up in the Emirates Stakes (registered as LKS Mackinnon Stakes) (Gr 1, 2000m) at Flemington on Saturday. The five-year-old gelding won the Cranbourne Cup (Listed, 2025m) on his first
start in Australia before running a good third behind Winx (Street Cry) in the Cox Plate (Gr1, 2040m) last time. "We couldn't be happier with him," Appleby's travelling foreman Chris Connett told "He came out of the race (Cox Plate) very well and he did his last serious gallop on Saturday and then he
stretched his legs this morning.” He will face 14 rivals from barrier 15 with Kerrin McEvoy booked to take the ride.
