Fortuna horses racing 7th – 9th August


Five Fortuna runners in Singapore this weekend

Friday 7th

5yo Double Jeopardy  is all set for his 2nd up run this coming Friday in a Class 5 event over 1600 metres on the Turf. Drawn 1 at the barrier, he carries top with of 59kgs but has Singapore’s leading jockey Manoel Nunes in the saddle. Note this is a day meeting as Singapore is celebrating its 50th Anniversary (and what a 50 years it has been for the fledgling nation) and so the race start time is 4.50pm NZ time. He is well suited by this race at a trip that is ideal and on the roomy Turf track. A bold showing is expected.

In the same race and after not getting a start last week, OUR RIVER DANCER is all set for his race this Friday in a Class 5 1600 metre event on the Turf track. Unfortunately, he has drawn wide, at Barrier 11, however he will carry just 48.5kgs courtesy of the 4kg claim of Apprentice CK Ng. If he jumps well, rider will take him forward and he is capable of featuring in the finish with luck in the running.

Sunday 9th

KING SAVINSKY  has bounced through his race last Friday like an old pro and so is all set to race again this coming Sunday in a Class 5 event over 1800 metres on the Ploytrack, race 5 at 6.50pm NZ Time. Drawn barrier 9, in a field of 13, Manoel Nunes to ride   and if he jumps well, you will see him take up a prominent position in the running. THE KING is well suited in this event, has been racing very consistently and it would be no surprise to see him win his first race in Singapore.

SECRET SPICE has been coming along very nicely in her work and she will resume racing this coming Sunday 9th August in a Class 5 1200 metre event on the Polytrack, Race 8, run at 8.20pm NZ time. Singapore’s top jockey, Manoel Nunes takes the mount from a nice draw of barrier 7. Wile at a trip that is too short for her, she could give a lot of cheek in a fresh state.

EATONS GOLD  is all set to run this coming Sunday 9th August in an Open Benchmark 1100 event on the Polytrack, Race 10 at 9.25pm NZ time. Spoilt for choice with jockeys, Mark Walker  has elected to put Singapore’s Champion rider, Manoel Nunes, aboard. Unfortunately, we have drawn wide again, but Nunes will sum that up as they jump and we know he has the speed to go forward if able. Racing in white hot form, EATON is very capable of taking this event out.
