Singapore Racing - Weekend Review - 7th of January

Just the sole meeting in Singapore over the weekend with the Ricardo Le Grange trained Super Power one of the standout performers.

Returning from a short break (51 days), Super Power Horseform followed up on his dominant maiden win when easily making the rise to Class 4 company.

Ridden by Barend Vorster, Super Power sustained decent pressure up-front, before showing a good turn of foot to draw clear, before holding off the late charge of the Dan Meagher trained Red Claw Horseform.

Although only winning by a length, Super Power never appeared in any danger and continued his upward ratings spiral.

Only lightly raced Super Power finished third on debut before a fair effort when finishing sixth in the Group 3 Juvenile Championship [1400m].

Sent for a break, the Ricardo Le Grange-trained runner returned in emphatic fashion winning his maiden by four lengths in sharp time.

Leading all the way, Super Power returned a Timeform figure of 83p, a very high rating for a restricted maiden win.

As a result it was no surprise to see him sent out the $1.40 favourite on Sunday.

Improving five pounds, Super Power again returned a strong performance against the clock and appears on track to contest the 3YO Challenge in March.

The Group 3 Singapore 3YO Sprint (1200m) kicks off the series (March 30) and while short of his best, he is expected to continue his progression.

Super Power's racing pattern (on-speed) is one of his biggest assets and he gives the impression he will be even better at a mile.

It will be interesting to see where he lines up next, as while he may be looking for further, Le Grange may elect to keep him fresh with an eye towards the Singapore 3YO Sprint.

Either way he is certainly one to follow as the ability he has displayed in four starts suggests there are plenty more wins in store.

Another galloper who impressed on Sunday was the Steven Burridge trained Sahara Eagle Horseform.

Formerly based in Australia under the care of John Sargent, Sahara Eagle really impressed in his Singapore debut when leading throughout over 1400m.

Ridden by Harry Kasim, Sahara Eagle showed good speed early and never appeared in any danger, coasting to the line to score by 1.5L.

It's never easy for horses to make the transition to Singapore and given the ease at which Sahara Eagle has done so, he is certainly one to follow.

On his best prior form in Australia, he has a bit up the sleeve and will be better over further, he is a must for your blackbook.
