Invincible Man hard to beat

Last-start beaten favourite INVINCIBLE MAN is all set to make amends in Race 2 at Kranji tonight.

The Leslie Khoo-trained Australian-bred gets the ticks in several areas.

Most importantly, the blinkers will go up and this should spur the horse to his first win in four starts. The bay gelding won his trial impressively with the headgear.

The other two plus factors are Invincible Man is drawn well in Gate 2 and he will be racing 4kg lighter than on his last start.

Then, on Oct 31, he carried 57kg and crashed as the $7 pop but was not completely disgraced, as he finished third, albeit six and a quarter lengths behind.

He could have finished closer if not for a check.

That was also his first run from a three-month break and he could have needed it. He has certainly improved.

Hopefully, he jumps quickly and make his way to the front with the aid of the blinkers and set a merry chase for his rivals over the 1,000m dash on the Polytrack.
