Sat – 1 Aug
Last start winner, Happy Buffalo, trained by SY Lim still looking fit in a workout at Selangor Turf Club this morning. Taken out by a track rider, the seven-year-old by Danzero took it easy with a trot and then was restrained to pace work on the rain soaked track. Last outing, Happy Buffalo came with a determined bid in the run home to beat O’What a Feeling over 1100m last week at this course. Once again, Jockey Calvin Goon takes the reins on Happy Buffalo and the combination should win in the Class 4 (A) over 1600m in Race 7 on Saturday.
RACE 4: Buffalo Soldier did a trot and galloped keenly in 40.6 seconds.
RACE 5: Gyarados did a trot and was hard held for pace work.
RACE 8: Paragon Star was given a trot and then did a hit out in 41 seconds.
Sun – 2 Aug
Richard Lines’s Desire Sky should be reckoned with a chance to greet the judges in the Supreme A event over 1200m in Race 6 on Sunday. At the track, the six-year-old by Pins with a track rider on board, did a strong canter and then sprinted smartly over 600m in 43.4 seconds on a tight hold. Last outing, Desire Sky ran a fair sixth to Super Winner over 1100m in February this year. Stepping up from the morning workout, Desire Sky will be ridden by Jockey HK Cheng and should greet the judges this time out.
