Singapore Racing - Weekend Review - January 26

With just one meeting in Singapore over the weekend Solaris Spectrum managed to upstage his more fancied rivals with a win in the Kranji Stakes A (1200m) on Friday night.
Settling off the leaders in fifth throughout, the Shane Baertschiger-trained runner moved closer on the turn and battled on strongly in the straight to edge out the favourite Super Fortune with Forever Young a length further back in third.
Having his first start since September of last year, Solaris Spectrum ran to a new career peak Timeform rating of 86 with the lightweight of 108lbs the difference in the end.
With a solid career record of six wins and eight placings from 24 starts, the son of Time Thief is one to watch going throughout the preparation particular if he can continue to run up to this effort.
Super Fortune was good again in second only narrowly beaten and is still yet to miss the placings in Singapore from seven starts.
With the 118lbs, Super Fortune ran to a new career peak Timeform rating of four pounds above his second placing to Skywalk the start prior in a Kranji Stakes A.
The four-year-old gelding is one of the most consistent horses racing in Singapore at the moment and despite running narrow second placings in his last two it only appears a matter of time until he returns to the winners circle.
The following race saw Excellency return with a win in the Class 3 over 1 m, his first victory since coming to Singapore early last year.
Settling back in the field from the middle draw, the Lee Freedman-trained runner was still well back on the turn but produced an outstanding turn of foot over the concluding 1 1⁄2 f to run out a strong winner over Tesoro Privado in second with Chocolats third.
Excellency returned a Timeform figure of 84 which is quite strong for a Class 3 race and he may have now turned the corner in his first race for the Lee Freedman stable.
Tesoro Privado continued his strong recent form in second with the lightly raced three-year-old having featured in the placings all seven runs to date.
The son of Orpen returned a new career peak Timeform rating of 85 and certainly appears to relish the 1 m trip on the turf track.
