It's time to GET GOING

GET GOING has been consistent without winning.

But he gets his chance in Race 3 at Kranji this afternoon, when he meets what looks like a weak Kranji Stakes D-2 field over 1,400m.

The Michael Clements-trained, Lucky Stable-owned four-year-old's last-start second should put him in good stead for today's assignment.

He moved up from midfield to beat all but the promising Fastnet Dragon, who clocked a fast 1min 21.90sec over today's 1,400m trip.

The calibre of his opposition today is not as strong, which puts Get Going in with a top chance to shed his maiden status.

The chestnut Australian-bred gelding also gets in with a better draw (No. 3) than his last start when he drew barrier No. 11.

It's time to get going, folks.
