Another challenging afternoon for punters will take place at Perak Turf Club on Saturday with a nine race card commencing at 1.15pm.

For those who can identify a winner or two there should be plenty of value as each race contains numerous chances.


The 1000m Carnation Handicap (Race 7) will feature the return to the racetrack of former Malaysian 3YO Championship winner, KANTE. The now 5yo will resume since suffering defeat for the first time on July 19 finishing unplaced in a Penang Class 4 contest. KANTE appeared a little underdone at his first outing in 13 months with his bodyweight over 30kg heavier compared to his two winning weights and despite an injury interrupted career, he is worth watching first up.

There are several seasoned and fitter campaigners in the 11 horse line up including last start winner LIM’S PIPER and the consistent ALWAYS D’GREAT, who both ran the quinella in a 1200m Class 4 event here at the last meeting. LIM’S PIPER continues to look sharp on the training track and is a chance despite rising 2.5kg in the weights. ALWAYS D’GREAT will be suited if a wet track prevails and is the likely leader.

CRACKING TOTTIE has maintained solid form since posting successive victories in July and August but still may require a dry surface to display his best form. ALCATRAZ, a Penang winner in August, should strip fitter second up from a spell while KING POWER did not disgrace in KL when placed 4th over 1100m, seven days after his winning performance here on September 26. WORLD HARMONY was a perennial competitor in the high grade races for most of his career and the 10yo with several Class 4 runs under his belt looks a genuine chance at the weights.


It took 4yo performer COMECATCHME seventeen starts to finally break the duck but is a chance of going back to back in the 1200m Daffodil Handicap. One of three runners for the AJ’s Stable in the event, COMECATCHME was dominant over 1000m when leading throughout on September 27 in the soft going and if a wet track eventuates again on Saturday, he should prove hard to beat. The other AJ’s stable runners appear to be genuine hopes also with PEARL KING on the downgrade while QASAR was a winner in heavy going at Penang back in July. SING ROULETTE is expected to improve having recorded 4 wins at the distance. The form of TRIPLE ONE D’GREAT appears below par on paper but the gelding attracted some market support last start and has been working well at the track.  The six year old galloper WHAT is now trained locally and looks best of the lightweights with trifecta claims.
