June 5 (Reuters) - Australian shares are set to open lower on Friday, taking leads from losses on Wall Street, to snap a four-day rally over which the index has gained more than 4%. The local share price index futures fell 0.2%, a 5.8-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index close. The benchmark rose 0.8% on Thursday. New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index was flat in early trade. (Reporting by Shreya Mariam Job in Bengaluru; Editing by Sandra Maler)
