TEN RACES PROGRAMMED FOR IPOH THIS SATURDAY


Perak Turf Club will host an all Class 5 programme of racing on Saturday with the exception of Race 8, which is the for the Open Maiden performers. Over varying distances ranging from 1000m to 1800m, the ten race card should be a challenging one for punters as many candidates receive a chance of improving on their recent form and respective ratings. Ipoh has received plenty of rain throughout the week and a soft track is predicted with the short course turn rail out 2 metres while the long course rail will be out 3 metres.

The tipping panel have provided their list of horses to watch:

RACING GUIDE:

DANE’S ANATOMY (R7 No10) – The 7yo should be primed for a forward showing following two runs since a spell. Both performances have been encouraging with a fast finishing 2nd when resuming here last month and was well supported when 4th in Penang a fortnight ago. The horse has recorded 3 career wins, all at 1200m, and races best when placed on the speed.

DARK EXPRESS (R10 No5) – A perennial Class 5 performer which strikes a field which is not overly strong. The 7yo received a slight check after the start and got too far back at Penang two weeks ago which followed his runner up performance at the same track a week prior. A fast and reliable beginner, DARK EXPRESS should prove hard to run down over the 1000m journey.

TURF GUIDE:

JJ STAR (R5 No1) – Has displayed potential in his 3 race starts and indicated his winning turn is not far away with a good 2nd over 1700m in Penang last start. The 3yo carried 59kg on that occasion so the weight will not be a problem against his older rivals.

EAGLE EYE:

MONTE CARLO (R6 No4) – Despite not winning a race for 11 months, the 5yo has dropped in the ratings and is capable of showing up again in Class 5 company on Saturday. His recent form looks moderate on paper and his sole career victory was over 1400m but has the services of in form apprentice jockey, L De Souza.

SUPER BONUS (R9 No1) – Another horse with some recent ordinary form and could prove to be a value runner in the 1000m contest. The 7yo has put in a couple of handy trials recently and if he replicates that on race day, he may be a winning chance at good odds.

WINNER 21:

HEAVENLY GIFT (R3 No2) – Still lingering in Class 5 company and has been in good form this year posting 2 wins at Penang from his past 3 starts. The 6yo wasn’t disgraced when runner up here last month and has been freshened up for the Shanmugum camp.
