Friday Flash 4th June

Fortuna has three runners Saturday 5th June – all in Singapore


Hadeer races in the class 4 1400 Turf (race three at 5 pm New Zealand time) – he will be ridden by M Zaki from barrier 9 in a field of 12 runners – working well Hadeer has not had much luck in his last two starts, but looks well placed in this race at the weights, has a slightly tricky draw with the running rail in the D position – however if he gets luck he can feature and presents as a top four chance

Sportscaster races in the Class five 1200 on the Polytrack (race five at 6 pm) – backing up from an 1100m race same grade last week, this trip will be too short for this staying type of horse, but he does have a good draw from barrier five and with Dennis Tan aboard claiming 4kg, has a very moderate weight to carry would be a surprise to see him win but he can surprise us over these shorter trips if he gets things his way and could feature as a place chance

Hidden Promise is in race seven the Class 5 1600 Turf (race seven at 7 pm) this six time winner in Singapore looks very well-placed in this  – down to a rating where he has won before he gets up to his favourite trip and has the  highly experienced Danny Beasley in the saddle – He will need a little bit of luck from the draw but if there is a solid tempo and he can race one out with cover in a mid field position, should be in a position to finish off very strongly is a very good each way chance and can win if things go right – is our best chance on the day
