Friday Flash 6th August

Fortuna has two runners this weekend – 1 at Riccarton Saturday and 1 in Singapore Sunday

Beau Geste races in the Open Hurdles 3100m at Riccarton on Saturday (race one at 11:35 am) – he has had four solid flat races since winning a Maiden Hurdles event at Wanganui in May and is rockhard fit – will be ridden by Dean Parker again in a small field of five runner.  The field is small but strong, however he is a talented jumper and can feature in this event

Beau Geste – Awapuni 10th July 2021

Hidden Promise
races in Singapore in the Class five 1600 Polytrack event (race five at 6pm New Zealand time)  – this impressive last start winner will be ridden again by Shafiq Rusof – unfortunately he has drawn barrier 11 in a field of 12 runners which will make things a bit tricky for him – strong win last time, same grade, same trip, he will be sure to give his best as always but will need some luck from the draw – if he gets it he can certainly run into the money
