Tan Thean Loon's best bet Barnato (Race 5 No. 1)

BARNATO won the first leg of the six-race $1 million Singapore Golden Horseshoe series for two-year-olds on March 23 like a good horse and the Patrick Shaw-trained galloper is all set to make it a double in Race 5 today.

There are two good pointers.

First, the horse that he beat, Kiwi Karma, went on to land the second leg on April 4.

Second, Barnato has trained on further, as evidenced by his eye-catching trial win last week.

He should be hard to beat.
