Trainer Simon Dunderdale’s Ichika Bachika looks set to break the ice in a Class 5 (A) event over 1200m in Race 5 at Selangor Turf Club this Sunday.
On the track this morning, the four-year-old by Moshe with race rider Jackson Low astride, did a canter and then strode out fluently over 600m in 38.5 seconds on a tight hold.
Last outing, in February this year, Ichika Bachika ran a commendable second to D’Great Magic at this course over 1600m.
Looks well prepared, Ichika Bachika reverting over the sprint event, should be in a different proposition to win.
RACE 7: D’Great Win did a canter and then sprinted smartly over 600m in 38.5 seconds.
RACE 8: Vain Tycoon cantered on the first lap and then galloped on a tight rein in 38.6 seconds.
RACE 9: Fighting Warrior (J Low) did a canter first and then did a hit out over 600m in 38.3 seconds. Looking very fit.
The going was good. All workouts were done on the sand track.
