Last seen when runner up to the in form Elite Excalibur in the Group 3 Committee’s Prize (1600m) in March, the Mark Walker-trained runner was able to find himself in a good spot off the leaders from barrier 4.

Moving into third on the turn, Elite Invincible battled on strongly in the straight to claim a narrow win over Curvature in second with Lim’s Magic third.


Elite Invincible Horseform has been one of the most consistent horses in Singapore this year, winning three of his five starts and placing on the other two occasions.

This win was the first at Group level the four-year-old gelding and the first leg of the four-year-old challenge with the next leg in two weeks time and you would expect him to be a good chance in that based on recent form.

Another impressive winner of the day was Jupiter Gold Horseform who was able to upset the short priced favourite Distinctive Darci in the Kranji Stakes A (1200m).

Settling off the leaders, Jupiter Gold strode away from his rivals in the straight to win by just under three lengths from Distinctive Darci in second with Autumn Rush over a length further back in third.

The race was the first over the 1200m trip and on the Polytrack for Jupiter Gold since October 2016, running over more middle distances and staying trips in recent times.

Distinctive Darci who looked a very good chance going back on the polytrack would not have lost too many admirers and will certainly continue to be very competitive in stakes races.

On Friday night the Former UK runner Elite Power Horseform secured his first win in Singapore when taking out the Class 3 over 1000m on the Polytrack.

The Mark Walker-trained runner had been threatening to break through, placing in two of his previous three runs with his other outing too bad to be true when last and having excuses.

Settling midfield, Craig Grylls was able to get the most out of Elite Power who won by one and a half lengths over Dynamic General in second with Preferred third.

With the Singapore win now under his belt, the four-year-old gelding certainly has the ability to continue making his way through the grades.
