Singapore – There’s a standalone Friday meeting at Kranji as Singapore freshens up for next weekend’s Dester Singapore Gold Cup weekend, which also includes the popular EW Barker on Friday next week. Punters will have to be on their toes early today and with the first four races on the E Course (short), on-pace runners will be the flavour of the night. One who fits the bill comes from the stable of Michael Clements, two-times champion trainer in Zimbabwe before relocating to Singapore.
