GRAND CROSS, Race 3, 1st
James was very pleased with his performance, it was a solid effort. Vlad gave him a nice ride, he dictated the pace well and travelled like a winner. When asked for more in the home straight he really lengthened and clinched the race well. He's pulled up fine without any issues and he'll have a quiet week before going back to full training. We're looking at another 1200m race for him in few weeks before stepping up to the 1400m.
WINNING EXPRESS, Race 4, 1st
A good solid effort, his job was made a little easier with the scratching of a couple of fancied horses! Glen Boss said he felt like he was on the winner throughout, and he finished off the race with a bit left in hand. He's pulled up fine and will have a quiet week before getting back into training. We're looking for a race in 3 to 4 weeks time over 1200m again and will be sticking to the polytrack as he seems to like it a bit better than the turf.
DREAMWEAVER, Race 5, 1st
We're very pleased with his run, James thinks it's probably his best run to date in Singapore. Glen Boss gave him a nice ride, they dictated the pace in front and had a nice rhythm, which seems to be the key to this horse. When asked for an extra effort in the home straight he attacked the line well and finished off strongly. He's pulled up fin and we'll look for a suitable race for him in a few weeks time.

SILK ROUTE, Race 1, 2nd
Another tough, honest race; Olivier gave him a nice ride. He did everything right and gave 100%, unfortunately he ran into competition in a lucky horse. They ran a super quick time for the grade and he looks to win a race very soon off that run. He'll have some time off after a hard run and we'll find something suitable for him in three to four weeks time.
MACARTHUR, Race 7, 2nd
Really happy with his run, it was a massive effort. The blinkers really helped and he was given a good front-running ride by Manoel Nunes who judged the pace well. We were just unfortunate to run into a very smart horse. He's pulled up fine and we're going to push on to second leg of the thee-year-old series.
DAVINCI, Race 11, 2nd
He ran another solid race on Sunday, Nooresh (Juglall) gave him a nice quiet ride and cut the corner into the straight. When asked, he really hit the line well, it was just unfortunate he didn't get his head down at the end. We're looking for a suitable race for him in a few weeks time.
