Gold Line can shine with rookie's claim
If you are looking for a top bet with a bit of value today, GOLD LINE in Race 5 is the one.
The Patrick Shaw-trained four-year-old has yet to run a bad race and his last-start effort puts him in with a good chance in today's Kranji Stakes D2 event over 1,400m.
He led over 1,200m last time out on Aug 2 and faded only in the closing stages to finish a creditable third to Golden Mission, who clocked a smart 1min 09.98sec.
That was in Class 4 and today he is running against a weaker field.
Although he is handicapped topweight at 58kg, he will race with only 55kg, after apprentice MM Firdaus' 3kg claim.
He is also drawn well in gate No. 5 and should set a merry chase from the word "go".
If left alone in front, it will be hard for the others to catch him.
