Noah floats his boat with easy Kranji win

The Citizen (KZN) - - RACING EXPRESS - Sin­ga­pore

- South African Group 1 win­ner Noah From Goa atoned from his de­feat on de­but by scor­ing a re­sound­ing all-the-way vic­tory that was a truer re­flec­tion of his po­ten­tial in the $125,000 Bet­ter Than Ever 2010 Stakes over 1800m at Kranji yes­ter­day.

The 2015 Cape Guineas win­ner made his de­but in a sim­i­lar Kranji Stakes A race, but over 1200m five weeks ago.

Don­ning blink­ers that day, the Tiger Ridge six-year-old was like a fish out of wa­ter, not to men­tion he got gal­loped on and re­turned with cuts to his near-fore.

Trainer Ri­cardo le Grange was con­fi­dent his charge would bounce back.

The South African han­dler did away with the head­gear and also de­cided to run him over a more suit­able trip.

Jockey Nooresh Juglall did not hold back when he no­ticed the other seven run­ners’ re­luc­tance to go for­ward.From the mo­ment Noah From Goa took charge, it be­came in­creas­ingly clear they would be hard-pressed to run him down in the home straight.

The former Mike de Kock pro­tégé never weak­ened, am­bling away to a most im­pres­sive 1.25-length win from Makanani with Song To The Moon third an­other neck away. “The horse has a bright fu­ture here,” said Juglall. – Sin­ga­pore Turf Club
