Te Akau Singapore Saturday Preview

 

Te Akau Singapore has 20 horses entered on Saturday 11 September at Kranji.

Currently leading the Singapore Trainers' Premiership with 50 wins, Mark Walker was Champion Trainer in 2015, 2017 (record 87 wins), and 2019, runner-up three times, third, and fourth, since Te Akau established its stable at Kranji Racecourse in 2010.

 

4.00 p.m. R1 6 Hidden Promise (9 g Postponed - Promissory) - Shafiq Rusof; drew barrier 7 of 12 in the $30,000 Class 5 1600 metres on poly-track and carries 56kg. The first of two runners for Mark Walker in this event, the now 9YO is in good form and rates a top four chance.

4.00 p.m. R1 11 Accumulation  (7 g Rip Van Winkle - Vega Sicila) - Harry Kasim; drew barrier 9 of 12 in the $30,000 Class 5 1600 metres on poly-track and carries 50kg. He rates a light weight prospect if he can overcome the awkward draw.

4.30 p.m. R2 1 Broadway Success  (6 g Alamosa - Broadway Express) - Jerlyn Seow (a4); drew barrier 2 of 12 in the $30,000 Class 5 1200 metres on poly-track and carries 55kg. Ideally drawn (2), he is capable of a first four finish.

5.00 p.m. R3 2 Doc Hudson  (7 g Commands - Millyet) - Aiman Kamaruddin (a2); drew barrier 4 of 12 in the $50,000 Class 4 1200 metres on poly-track and carries 54kg. He went a much improved race last start, and a continuance of that would see him up to figuring in the first four - the first of two lining up for the stable.

5.00 p.m. R3 3 Motakhayyel  (5 g Snitzel - Tetsuko) - Shafiq Rusof; drew barrier 7 of 12 in the $50,000 Class 4 1200 metres on poly-track and carries 55.5kg. He needs to improve to make an impact.

5.30 p.m. R4 1 King Arthur (4 g I Am Invincible - Pentasia) - Shafiq Rusof; drew barrier 11 of 12 in the $20,000 Maiden 1000 metres on poly-track and carries 57.5kg. He presents as a top four chance with any luck from the tough draw (11).

6.00 p.m. R5 1 Mystery Power  (4 g No Nay Never - Gems) - Jerlyn Seow (a4); drew barrier 11 of 12 in the $50,000 Class 4 1200 metres on poly-track and carries 54.5kg. Another event with two Mark Walker representatives, the first looks a place chance with a difficult gate to overcome (11).

6.00 p.m. R5 8 Inherit  (6 g Pierro - In the Future) - Moha Zaki; drew barrier 9 of 12 in the $50,000 Class 4 1200 metres on poly-track and carries 51.5kg. He requires a drop to Class 5 to be competitive.

6.30 p.m. R6 3 Maximillian  (6 g Highly Recommended - Annabel Rose) - Aiman Kamaruddin (a2); drew barrier 5 of 12 in the $30,000 Class 5 1600 metres on poly-track and carries 57kg. Three stable starters in this Class 5 affair, the first was winner when last presented and he rates a top four chance.

6.30 p.m. R6 6 Sportscaster  (8 g Fastnet Rock - Gypsy Dancer) - Jerlyn Seow (a4); drew outside barrier (12) in the $30,000 Class 5 1600 metres on poly-track and carries 53kg. The second of the Walker trio cops a challenging draw (12), however he can finish in the money with any luck from the ‘car park'.

6.30 p.m. R6 7 Marcus Antonius  (4 g Sepoy - Panda's Turn) - Shafiq Rusof; drew barrier 10 of 12 in the $30,000 Class 5 1600 metres on poly-track and carries 56.5kg. Another with an awkward gate to navigate but he does have first four claims.

7.00 p.m. R7 1 Axel  (6 g Darci Brahma - Josephines Fortune) - Jerlyn Seow (a4); drew barrier 8 of 9 in the $50,000 Class 4 1800 metres on poly-track and carries 55kg. The son of multiple Champion Singapore Sire Darci Brahma, he has been very consistent throughout his career - currently in good form, he rates a top four chance.

7.00 p.m. R7 6 Sound the Siren  (7 g Snitzel - Gussy Godiva) - Aiman Kamaruddin (a2); drew barrier 1 of 9 in the $50,000 Class 4 1800 metres on poly-track and carries 52.5kg. The second stable starter can be somewhat unpredictable but he is capable, and thus rates a top four chance.

7.30 p.m. R8 13 Our Secret Weapon  (4 g Outreach - Poppy's Pond) - Shafiq Rusof; drew barrier 5 of 12 in the $30,000 Class 5 1100 metres on poly-track and carries 58kg.  Purchased at the Karaka Ready to Run Sale by David Ellis, to race in Singapore, he is a talented type and having made the field due to a scratching, he presents as a top four chance.

8.00 p.m. R9 3 Black Quail  (8 g Coats Choice - Sefidi) - Jerlyn Seow (a4); drew barrier 8 of 10 in the $30,000 Class 5 1200 metres on poly-track and carries 54kg. Resuming from a lengthy layoff, at this early stake of his preparation, he looks a place chance.

8.30 p.m. R10 8 Super Invincible  (5 g I Am Invincible - Isstoora) - Shafiq Rusof; drew barrier 7 of 12 in the $70,000 Class 3 1100 metres on poly-track and carries 54.5kg. This 5YO is better suited to 1000m, but he still can be a place chance.

8.30 p.m. R10 10Man of Mystery (7 g All Too Hard - Black Minx) - Jerlyn Seow (a4); drew barrier 7 of 12 in the $70,000 Class 3 1100 metres on poly-track and carries 49.5kg. He too is better suited to 1000m and, like his stablemate, rates a place chance.

8.30 p.m. R10 13Entertainer (5 g Zoustar - Laughing) - Aiman Kamaruddin (a2); drew barrier 4 of 12 in the $50,000 Class 4 1100 metres on the poly-track and carries 51.5kg. Ballot one, he rates a top four chance if makes field.

9.00 p.m. R11 3 Aftermath  (4 g Spirit of Boom - Elusive Gift) - Aiman Kamaruddin (a2); drew barrier 1 of 12 in the $50,000 Class 4 1100 metres on poly-track and carries 55kg. He is enjoying good form, and has the draw and apprentice claim to be in the thick of things at the business end.

9.00 p.m. R11 7 Master Ryker  (6 g Sebring - Hanky Panky) - Shafiq Rusof; drew outside barrier (12) in the $50,000 Class 4 1100 metres on poly-track and carries 56kg. He has been unlucky of late and that continues with a challenging draw - any rub of the green will see him capable of returning a dividend.
