JETSET MAN and LORD ROBERTO both to start in Singapore tonight

FORTUNA 4yo’s JETSET MAN ( Golan-Jetset Doll) and LORD ROBERTO ( Encosta de Lago-Prized Glory) both compete in Singapore tonight. The strapping JETSET MAN, who won one race in NZ before going to Singapore, steps up to the 1700 metre distance in Race 3 tonight (11.20 pm). He is having just his 3rd race day start in Singapore and will be ridden by Te Akau Racings NZ resident jockey, Mathew Cameron. Mathew is in Singapore to ride at the two race meetings there this weekend and takes the mount on the Mark Walker trained ALPHA CENTAURI in tonight’s Singapore Guineas.

In Race 8 (2.20am NZ time), the equally strapping LORD ROBERTO resumes over 1400 metres after a short spell. LORD ROBERTO has won twice in Singapore already and is developing into a really nice staying type. He will be ridden by Te Akau’s Singapore apprentice, Shafiq Rusof, who takes 2kg’s off the horses back courtesy of his apprentice allowance.
