FORTUNA NZ Stable has five runners in Singapore this weekend.

A big weekend ahead for the FORTUNA NZ Racing team with three runners Friday night in Singapore and two more on Sunday.

First off the block on Friday night in Race 2 is 3yo OUR RIVER DANCER in a Restricted Maiden event over 1200 metres. HUNTER as he is nicknamed is still chasing his first win in Singapore and does have a difficult barrier draw to contend with. Will be ridden by Stable Apprentice Shafiq Rusof.

Race 3 sees last start winner LORD ROBERTO backing up after a dominant display last week. To be ridden again by Lisa Allpress this lovely big 5yo will contest a Class 4 event over 1600 metres. Has a tricky draw to contend with but does represent a big threat in this race.

Finally in Race 6, the in form MANNY PACUIAO has drawn beautifully in gate 3 for this Class 4 1200 metre event and will be ridden my the “Magic Man” Singapore Champion jockey, Joao Moreira. He is bound to be very competitive in this race.

Sunday evening, NZ time sees 4yo READY FORTUNE contest a Kranji D Stakes race over 14oo metres on the Turf track. Probably a tad short of his ideal distance, but has drawn nicely and will be storming home at the finish in the hands of Shafiq Rusof.

Finally, in Race 12, JETSET MAN steps up to a 1400 metre trip on the Turf track. Drawn out wide but carries a featherweight of 50.5kgs in this Class 4 event. Stable Apprentice Willy Tan takes the mount claiming 3kgs.
