Take a joy ride on Sky Eleven
The Leslie Khoo-trained SKY ELEVEN has yet to run a bad race.
Chances are the four-year-old will take you on a merry ride in Race 3 at Kranji tonight.
From gate 2, the Australian-bred gelding is expected to jump and go under his recent regular jockey Alan Munro.
The Longines Singapore Gold Cup-winning rider has partnered Sky Eleven three times and should know the horse inside-out by now.
FULL OF MERIT
Three starts ago, on Sept 19, the Englishman steered Sky Eleven to an easy all-the-way win over the 1,400m.
The combination then finished third in their next two starts, which were full or merit.
In his penultimate outing, also over 1,400m, Sky Eleven lost to newcomer Ideal Guide, who went on to win two more races before running 10th in last Sunday's $1.35 million Group 1 Longines Singapore Gold Cup.
Last time out on Nov 11, Sky Eleven hit the front over tonight's 1,600m trip and looked a winner before finishing third behind the promising Titanium and In Fact, who went on to win last Sunday.
With only the Hideyuki Takaoka-trained Marea Negro as the likely pacemaker in tonight's moderate Class 4 race, Munro may elect to sit just behind and press the button in the straight.
If Marea Negro doesn't lead, he can take up that vantage spot after jumping from his favourable inside draw.
If he gets a soft lead, the others will be in trouble.
