Fol­low ‘King Vlad’ for the Jack­pot

The Citizen (KZN) - - Racing Express - Larry Fo­ley Sin­ga­pore

– On Thurs­day night Vlad Duric was crowned Cham­pion Sin­ga­pore Jockey for the third straight year.

On Sun­day, he can again show why he is the undis­puted ‘King of Kranji’ with a strong book of rides and may just bring pun­ters home with the last four win­ners.

Race 7 is the first leg of the Jack­pot and Lim’s Pride looks one of the bet­ter bets on the card.

That was his first run in the bot­tom grade and from gate 2 you would think he will be hard to pass late over 1400m.

Top Knight is the ob­vi­ous pick in the fea­ture race, the RDA Cup, - and while Vlad wouldn’t want to give the likes of Ara­maaayo too much of start, he should be hard to hold out.

In Race 8 it is an­other re­cent Class-drop­per in Run­min­derbinder­run who gets the Duric treat­ment and should re­ally win.

Duric is on new­comer Churchill in the lucky race, but given the form from Aus­tralia and a nice lo­cal trial un­der his belt, can win and hope­fully cap off a big night for Vlad and his faith­ful band of fol­low­ers.

Best Bets: Lim’s Pride, Race 7, Win; Run­min­derbinder­run Race 9, Win and Fulife King Race 6, value.

Jack­pot: Race 7: 4; Race 8: 1 and 7; Race 9: 2, 4, 6 and 7 and Race 10: 1 and 2.
