Pacific Empire (Dissident Lass – Casino Lass)

Promising five-year-old PACIFIC EMPIRE will get his chance to pick up his second local win in the Class 4 Division B event over 1100m at Selangor on Sunday.

The KC Tiang-trained gelding has shown ability in four local starts since arriving from Singapore and was last seen checking in 2.5 lengths into second behind MR HANKS. The race shape looks vital to his winning chances as, if quality mare SIMLONG BEACH is afforded a soft lead, she could take catching. Still, PACIFIC EMPIRE should be within striking distance and can have the last say.
