Two jockeys familiar to Hong Kong race enthusiasts will be featured in one of Singapore’s biggest races on Sunday.
Blake Shinn, who won the Gold Cup and Champions & Chatter Cup of the Russian Emperor this year, recently left Hong Kong for mental health reasons and took a short detour to ride Lion City for a month before returning to Australia.
The 34-year-old is his outstanding ride to the Singapore Derby (1,800m) on a Jerome Tan-trained Amazing Breeze, with five rides on his first appearance at the Kranji Racecourse. I was able to do it.
Shin may have to do his best to get the big race trophy, as his mount looks like it’s countering it on the form.
Only three winners of his 22 starts, the four-year-old can finish fifth in the previous Group 2 Steward Cup, behind other derby runners, and find a huge amount in the rating. I can do it.
Daniel Moore’s career in Hong Kong ended almost before it began. He left Hong Kong just two months after spending time with his family in Australia after being unable to settle in Australia.
After making a round trip from Australia, Moore has won one winner from several rides in Singapore in the past few weeks and got a hero-shaped derby mount for inform trainer Tim Fitz Simmons. rice field.
Shin fined HK $ 600,000 for visiting bars and clubs and violating the Covid protocol.
If Moore finds himself in the winner’s enclosure after the race, another horse that looks away from his depth, the hero, must significantly outperform his reputation.
Fitz Simmons won three group races in Singapore last month and saddled three runners on the field. His main hope is that the first time he handles steps up to 1,800m, he seems to have plenty of relentless opportunities.
Relentlessly won a large trial of the Derby, Steward Cup, and stayed strong in a way that suggested that an extra 200 meters was enough in his compass.
There is a big rating discrepancy among the 10 runners, which is almost 50 pounds between the highest and the lowest, so the class should come to the fore. Kosciuszko of Lim is the only candidate with a three-digit rating.
He was rated 101 and is a 10-time winner, but has never raced over 1,800 meters and was caught late for Relentless after last attempt at all runs in the Steward Cup. Perhaps Pace Angle, he’ll be there to be shot late.
The greatest danger of Relentless could be Tiger Roar. He was the only market leader in the shape of a course and distance, noting that he had a second win over his name in two attempts and remained third in the Steward Cup.
After returning from a 10-month layoff in June, he should be in a relatively light race and ready to run a big race for Derby-winning trainer Michael Clements.
