Friday Flash 28th February

Fortuna runners this week are, on Friday in Singapore,  Sportscaster in the Class 5 1600m on the Poly – Race 6, while the same venue in Saturday sees the 3yo Showbound, make his debut in the Restricted Maiden event on the Turf – Race 2, and Beau Geste tackles the Rating 65 2100 at Awapuni on Friday

Sportscaster is right in this event, nice draw, top rider in Vlad Duric, an even field and he is getting very fit – a good each way chance

Showbound has not put a foot wrong in his first Singapore preparation, he trialed beautifully the week before last and is primed to run well – unfortunately he has drawn barrier 14 of 14 runners and that will make it very difficult for him – Alysha Collett takes the mount and with luck in the running, he could sneak into the placings.

Beau Geste led most of the way Sunday 16th Feb at Gisborne over 1600m, today at Awapuni he gets out to 2100m and will be significantly improved from his Gisborne run – Jonathan Parkes to ride – drawn wide but he will go forward and be up on the speed. A Good each way chance
