Trainer Mark Walker comments here:

“I am pleased with Manny Pacuiao heading into his debut race in Singapore. We have the best jockey in Singapore to ride him for us which is a big plus. I think there will be quite a bit of early speed in the race, so I anticipate he will end up travelling about midfield through the early stages. Based on his trial form, so long as he handles the experience of night racing under the lights for the first time, which I think he will, then I think Manny can finish somewhere in the first 4 runners.”
