Lim’s Cruiser is in good shape

Thurs­day’s Kranji bar­rier tri­als

Like a hot knife through but­ter, Lim Cruiser made it look all too easy when win­ning his trial at Kranji yes­ter­day morn­ing.

Rid­den by Glen Boss, Lim’s Cruiser tracked fron­trun­ner Fili­buster – the mount of Michael Rodd – all the way un­til the 300m mark.

Given a flick of the reins, the seven-time win­ner knew ex­actly what to do. He length­ened strides and quickly put day­light be­tween him­self and Fili­buster.

Ab­sent from the race­track since win­ning the Lion City Cup in May, Lim’s Cruiser has had three tri­als al­to­gether – in­clud­ing this one.

And while it is un­cer­tain if we will see him race again this sea­son, the son of Casino Prince sure does look like he’s in a mean mood and ready any time his con­nec­tions de­cide to send him to the races.

In a later trial, Lonhro Gold caught the eye with a pil­lar-topost win. Clear­ing the chute sytlishly, the Cliff Brown­trained four-year-old never looked liked be­ing caught – even when chal­lenged in the con­clud­ing stages by Top Knight and Blitz Power, who both put in good runs.

With just one win from 14 starts – that one was in July – Lonhro Gold has been run­ning some de­cent races re­cently and could be one to keep an eye on.
