Gran Torino rar­ing to go

The New Paper - - RACING - TAN THEAN LOON

Kranji Sun­day pre­view

My mind was set last Thurs­day when I saw him win his trial with gusto.

For sure, this awe­some trial win­ner was go­ing to make a con­fi­dent bet on the way he ran his ri­vals ragged. His name?

Well, it’s Gran Torino, who sat in the leader’s slip­stream in the straight and, when he was an­gled out to see day­light, he length­ened his strides to win his trial with author­ity.

The James Peters-trained four-year-old has proven himTorino self to be a horse with strong po­ten­tial.

He won his de­but, beat­ing Dutrow, who went on to win his next start and then was a beaten favourite last Sun­day when sec­ond to Silkino.

At his sec­ond start, Gran fin­ished sec­ond to Sun Dream. He now looks spot-on.
