Copacabana in good form
The Cliff Brown-trained COPACABANA has run genuine race this campaign, with a win and two seconds from four starts.
It looks like the three-year-old New Zealand-bred is going to strike again in the final event on Monday, judging by his smart hit-out with race-jockey Michael Rodd astride at Kranji yesterday morning.
The brown gelding was kept well in hand to clock 38.7sec for 600m, pulling up very well.
