Super Fortune To Edge Rival In Kranji Stakes A

The Irace Classic Kranji Stakes A (1200m) shapes up as a competitive affair on Friday night with two clear top chances in the feature race.
Both Super Fortune and Tannhauser look well suited in the 12 horse field but expecting Super Fortune to carry on his strong recent form and return to the winners circle.
The four-year-old gelding has finished runner up in his last two outings, both by narrow margins in the same company and prior to that put two strong wins together over this course and distance.
Settling off the speed in fourth from barrier three last start, Super Fortune moved into second on the turn and took the lead inside the final 1 3⁄4 f but just missed when narrowly edged out by Solaris Spectrum.
That form still reads well for this having also cast his off-hind plate during the run and the son of Mossman has since won a barrier trial over 5 f in good order.
Proven in this company, Super Fortune also has a good record over the 6 f trip where four of his five career wins have come and from barrier 2 he is likely to settle just off the leaders again and take plenty of beating.
Tannhauser will offer some stiff contest for Super Fortune and the lightly raced four-year-old comes into the race having won five of his seven career starts.
A beaten favourite on the Polytrack two starts back, the Michael Clements-trained runner went on to win a Class 2 in good order over this trip last start on the turf.
This certainly shapes up as his toughest test to date however the four-year-old is considered one of the up and coming horses in Singapore and he measures up very well on what he has produced to this point.
Also drawn well in barrier 5 with Vlad Duric to remain on board, Tannhauser should get a nice run off the pace again and he will be getting to the line in good order.
Whilst its hard to ignore the form of Tannhauser Super Fortune is proven in this grade and looks to have a slight edge however it certainly shapes up as a very interesting dual.
Draco also takes the step up in grade off a second placing in a Class 2 last time out, running on well from back in the field, beaten a length by Grand Cross.
That effort came on the back of a win in a Class 3 and he is building an impressive career record.
Does his best racing over the 6 f trip as well and if there is enough speed up front he will be doing his best work late and is one to watch.
Good Luck!
