Perak Turf Club - WET TRACK PREDICTED FOR PRTC RACING THIS SATURDAY

WET TRACK PREDICTED FOR PRTC RACING THIS SATURDAY


Following persistent showers throughout the week in the Kinta Valley, a wet track is guaranteed for the ten race programme at PRTC on Saturday. The likelihood of a heavy track is possible following high and constant rainfall on Thursday night.

The concurrent meetings will be coming through from Macau (6 Races) and Australia (16 Races).  

The Curtain Raiser Stakes will highlight the card and prospective Derby runner, STAR QUALITY will be on the quick back up following his unplaced effort in the Penang Governors Gold Cup last Sunday, finishing 9th, only 3.5 lengths from the winner. The 7yo has scored 4 times in his career when backing up in the space of a week and should appreciate the drop in grade.

Q NINE MAGIC has been a model of consistency in 9 local runs, winning on 4 occasions. The 7yo is yet to win in the higher graded ranks but is threatening to win at this level soon and is coming off a last start 3rd in Penang.

 THE JEUNEYMAN

THE JEUNEYMAN has won 3 from 5 since being transferred from Singapore and his rapid progression through the grades suggests a forward showing is expected in the 1600m contest. The 6yo wasn’t suited over 1800m last start, has scored previously at the mile and jockey Y Aify has ridden the horse in two of his local victories.

WHIRLWIND was rewarded with a victory in KL recently after a string of minor placings and has a big weight advantage on some of his more experienced counterparts. The 4yo faces his toughest test to date and steps up to the mile for the first time.

 WHIRLWIND

STAR CHOICE can improve at his 3rd start for the P Lee stable and will be tried at the 1600m for the second time in his career. Last year’s Perak Derby winner, FORTUNIQUE has been down on form and has been slow to begin in recent outings. The French bred gelding will be back to defend his Derby title next week and may find the distance a fraction short.

One for value could be LUCK SUCCESS, which drops in weight from his previous performance and has proven himself at this level before.
