There will be more quality on show for Sunday’s program at PRTC featuring eleven races. The Trinity Foshan Stakes (Race 5) looks an interesting contest where handy former Singapore galloper, NOVA STRIKE makes his Malaysian debut for trainer Charles Leck. The 7yo had been competing against the high graders in Kranji prior to going for a spell back in May. NOVA STRIKE is a two- time G3 winner and was placed in the G1 Singapore Derby two years ago so he has the credentials to be competitive in Sunday’s event.


After 5 local runs, TANNHAUSER is nearing another victory following some consistent form since scoring at his local debut in July. The 6yo has been finishing close up behind some smart types recently and with a reliable beginning, should also be in the mix.


Former G3 winner, MR HANKS has been slightly down on form since winning a Metro A race at KL in July. The 5yo has the ability to win on best form and a forward showing is expected.

GRAND CROSS has been slightly down on form since suffering a respiratory problem back in May. After two unplaced performances in G1 company, the7yo led and weakened to finish 5th in a strong KL Metro A race last start. The Kevin Coetzee trained galloper is a fast beginner and can figure in the finish.

ROYAL RULER has been entrenched in the higher grades in Singapore and should be one to watch first up for the Sharee Hamilton camp. DESIRE SKY had no luck from a wide gate last start and may be a value runner coming off a couple of Class 3 wins in recent outings.

The Trinity Shenzen Stakes (Race 11) caps off the marathon card and the  inform LAUS DEO will be aiming for the winning hat trick. LAUS DEO is racing in career best form and has been freshened up since leading all the way over 1200m in KL.


The race also contains former smart juvenile NOVA SWISS, who makes his Malaysian debut. NOVA SWISS was one of the better three year olds in Singapore winning at his first four race starts. The now 6yo won the 2017 G2 Merlion Trophy and was a polytrack specialist, posting all his Kranji victories on the synthetic surface.

CELERITAS underwent another stable change recently and should strip a lot fitter following his first up performance in KL a fortnight ago. The 7yo chestnut was off the scene for 13 months and looks a chance with the apprentice claim.

GULITY PLEASURES and MACARTHUR are coming off good trials and both horses look genuine chances for the exotic players. RELAU STAR had no luck last start and possesses a record of 4 wins from 7 starts at the track/distance. His chances will be enhanced if a wet rack prevails this Sunday.
