Captain Jamie set to salute
4YO impresses in his final gallop for Sunday's race
Captain Jamie showed at trackwork yesterday morning that he is all set for Sunday's Kranji Stakes C race over 1,600m on the Polytrack.
With champion jockey Vlad Duric astride, the Ricardo Le Grange-trained four-year-old Australian-bred looked picture-perfect as he glided over 600m on the main Polytrack in a swift 35.1sec.
He pulled up very well.
A winner of three of his 20 races, with four seconds and three thirds, Captain Jamie rarely runs a bad race.
Last time out on Nov 11, the brown gelding went with the pace after jumping from a wide berth before finishing fourth to all-the-way winner Nepean over 1,200m on turf.
The 1,600m looks more suitable for him now. Remember, in the Group 1 Singapore Guineas over 1,600m in May, he ran a pleasing third behind Mr Clint.
On yesterday's gallop, he looks set for win No. 4.
