A star studded line up of 14 top class runners assembled in this years’ running of the Sports Toto Supreme Challenge Cup over 1600m at Selangor Turf Club in Race 8. All have an equal chance to win the feature race, but HY Cheng’s Shanghai Nights have the edge to capture the cup this time. The five-year-old by Ferlax won the last four starts in fine fashion and once again the last outing came with the usual characteristic burst of finish in the run home to beat Time To Harvest over 1400m last month. Jockey SU Lim has been given the task to ride Shanghai Nights and should once again produce a great form to win. Keep a note of D’Great Timing and Mr Hopkins, all have an equal chance to figure out the finish.

Fairdeal stable’s Distinctive Darci is reckoned with a back-to-back victory in Supreme A event over 1100m in Race 6. Trained by Richard Lines, the seven-year-old by Darci Brahma last start came with a well timed effort in the closing stages of the race to beat stablemate Manhattan over 1200m last month. Jockey S Ruzaini takes the ride on Distinctive Darci and should give another bold showing.


Trainer Johnny Lim’s Elite General looks well prepared for another victory in Class 4 (A) event over 1200m in Race 5. The eight-year-old by Exceed And Excel jumped very well and took the lead on settling down and was cleared away from the field in the run home beating Triple One Star last month. Apprentice A. Zaimuddin takes the ride on Elite General and might record another win.
