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.
