Singapore Mon Trackwork by Takeover, Pompeii & Sarrera
In Singapore, Australian-bred multiple Gr1-winners Takeover Target (Celtic Swing-Shady Stream, by Archregent), Pompeii Ruler (Genuine-West With Night, by Pompeii Court) & Sarrera (Quest For Fame-Zamsong, by Zabeel) all appeared on the Kranji track yesterday morning in the countdown to next Sunday's Gr1 Singapore Airlines International Cup & Gr1 KrisFlyer International Sprint.
Defending KrisFlyer Sprint winner Takeover Target "looked bright within himself as he trotted a lap of the Polytrack before cantering," noted the official trackwork report from the Singapore Turf Club. Trainer Joe Janiak had been concerned about the rising 10-year-old after he left some of his feed on Sunday morning (following his arrival on Saturday evening), but Takeover Target "was back on his feed on Sunday & Janiak was a happy man when he saw his charge 1st thing Monday morning". Janiak confirmed: "He ate up last night which was pleasing. I just think he may have fretted when he first got here & left some of his feed. He usually has a companion when he's been away before & this is something new for him. But he's back on track this morning. He's back eating & drinking & I'm happy with his condition."
International Cup contestants Sarrera & Pompeii Ruler "were both out for light exercise, trotting & cantering a lap of the Polytrack". Clare Rayner (assistant to Sarrera's trainer Mike Moroney) commented: "Looking at him, he's taken it all within his stride. He's adapted well so far to his new conditions & seems to be handling the humidity quite well. He's a lovely horse to handle. He's eaten up, drank plenty & has settled in beautifully." Pat Payet (travelling foreman for Pompeii Ruler's trainer Mick Price) said: "I've travelled with this horse to Dubai & the more he travels the better he gets. He's adapted pretty well to his new conditions & is coping pretty well with the humidity." Payet added Pompeii Ruler had arrived in Singapore "a fit & healthy galloper & would only need 1 serious gallop before Sunday's race" noting: "The boss (Price) is due to come up on Wednesday & I would say that we'll probably give him a gallop on the turf on Thursday. But saying that, if the boss rings up tonight to say gallop him tomorrow, then that's what I'll do."

Newitt cleared to ride Pompeii Ruler in SIA Cup 12 May 2009
 
By Rob Burnet
 
Victorian jockey Craig Newitt has been cleared to ride Pompeii Ruler in Sunday’s Group I Singapore Airlines International Cup (2000m) at Kranji after having a suspension reduced on appeal.

On May 2, Queensland stewards suspended Newitt for 10 meetings and fined him $2,000 over his ride aboard Rightfully Yours in the Prime Minister’s Cup ruling out the Singapore meeting.

Queensland Racing’s first level appeal tribunal reduced the 10-meeting suspension to eight meetings on Tuesday and the suspension now ends at midnight on Saturday night.

While the suspension was reduced, the $2,000 fine was increased to $5,000.

TT got barrier 3 which is perfect for him, Rocket man has 9, and Sacred Kingdom has 1.

In the cup, Pompeii Ruler drew 2, and Sarrera got 1.

Takeover Target vs Rocket Man at 9.50 pm tonight (Sunday AEST). Godolphin not conceding a two horse race

DIABOLICAL LINES UP IN SINGAPORE

Surface/Distance
Turf/6f

Godolphin has a first runner in the Krisflyer International Sprint at Kranji, Singapore, with Diabolical lining up in the valuable six-furlong event on Sunday, May 17.

The versatile six-year-old speedster switches back to turf after beginning

2009 with two pleasing displays over six furlongs on dirt at Nad Al Sheba, including a fine third in the Group One Dubai Golden Shaheen on March 28.

He also filled the same spot on his seasonal debut in the Group Three Mahab Al Shimaal - Dayjur on March 5.

He ended his 2008 season with second places in the inaugural Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint over an extended six furlongs at Santa Anita, USA, in October and the six-furlong turf Group Two John Guest Diadem Stakes at Ascot the previous month.

The son of Artax competed some of Europe's top turf Group One sprints last summer, including when dead-heating for fifth in the extended six-furlong Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville, France, in August, and when sixth, in the Darley July Cup at Newmarket a month earlier, when he was beaten by less than two lengths.

He has also shown a high level of form racing in the United States, winning the six-furlong Grade Two Alfred G Vanderbilt Handicap on dirt at Saratoga in July, 2007, as well as coming second at Group One level on the same surface in the seven-furlong Carter Handicap at Aqueduct in April of the same year, and the six-furlong Frank J De Francis Memorial Dash at Laurel Park in November, 2006.

Frankie Dettori, who has partnered Diabolical on his last nine starts, takes the ride again.

Saeed bin Suroor, Godolphin's trainer, said: "Diabolical is a tough horse who always runs his race and he contested some very good sprints last year.

"I was pleased with his runs in Dubai this season and he deserves to take his chance in a big race like this.

"I have been happy with his preparation and he seemed to cope well with the journey over to Singapore. It looks like Sunday's contest will be a very difficult race to win but I am hopeful that he can put up a good performance."

Godolphin racing manager Simon Crisford commented: "It looks like the Krisflyer International Sprint is going to be a red hot race and the Far East sprinters are very good. Diabolical will do really well to run into a place but he is in fighting good form and we think that the track will suit him.

"It's a very tough assignment for him because, even in Europe, he is just beneath the best sprinters. We are really pleased with his preparation and he deserves to take his chance.

"Our ambition is to win a nice big sprint with Diabolical and we are sure that such a race is within his sights."

Diabolical races against 13 others in the Krisflyer International Sprint headed by local hero Rocket Man, who is unbeaten in seven starts, Australian sprinting legend Takeover Target, who took this race last year, dual Hong Kong Group One scorer Sacred Kingdom and British raiders Prime Defender and Madame Trop Vite.


$1765 in the NSW win pool, $1.60 TT and $2.00 Rocket Man.

Then at 10.40 pm Pompeii Ruler and the horse that probably would have won the Doomben Cup yesterday, Sarrera, clash in the Singapore Cup. Frankie Dettori riding Balius for Godolphin.


BALIUS RETURNS TO SINGAPORE ACTION

Turf/10f

Balius is looking to make a winning debut for Godolphin in the Group One Singapore Airlines International Cup at Kranji, Singapore, on Sunday, May 17.

The six-year-old finished well in the 10-furlong race on turf last year to be third behind Jay Peg who lines up again.

Balius has raced on turf since coming second in a Listed Polytrack contest at Deauville in March, 2007, and started this year in Dubai, where he failed to get competitive in the Group One Dubai Duty Free over just short of nine furlongs at Nad Al Sheba on March 28.

He had previously been an impressive victor over the same course and distance in the Group Two Jebel Hatta - Daaher on March 5, when he ran on to defeat Jay Peg by a length and a quarter.

Balius, an eight-time winner in France, boasts a good record in the Far East, having been placed in all three of his starts in Hong Kong and Singapore.

The son of Mujahid stayed on to take second in the 10-furlong Group One Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Cup at Sha Tin in December and came with a late flourish to be runner-up in the Group One Audemars Piguet QE II Cup, also over 10 furlongs, at Sha Tin in April, 2008.

Frankie Dettori, who rode Grandera to success in the 2002 renewal of the Singapore Airlines International Cup, is in the saddle on Balius.

Saeed bin Suroor, Godolphin's trainer, commented: "Balius has settled in well and he won in good style at Nad Al Sheba earlier in the season. He disappointed in the Dubai Duty Free but has come out of that race in good shape and is ready to run .

"He ran well in the Singapore Airlines International Cup 12 months ago so we know that he likes the course and the 10-furlong trip. It looks like this year's race will a be a tough contest but I am hopeful that he can post a good performance."

Godolphin racing manager Simon Crisford added: "This is a big race for Balius is he is up against one or two top international horses who are in good form. He deserves to be in the line up and he has a good chance of getting a place.

"I don't know whether he can be good enough to beat the very top horses but he's in good form. He bounced out of the Dubai Duty Free without any hiccups and we have been pleased with his preparation.

"He ran well in this race last year, which is why we are going back, and he has joined Godolphin to be an international horse."

Balius takes on an international field of 11 rivals in the Singapore Airlines International Cup including Jay Peg, the Luca Cumani-trained Presvis, who was second in this season's Dubai Duty Free and won the Audemars Piguet QE II Cup on his latest start, Japanese raider Tascata Sorte and Australian Group One Emirates Queen Elizabeth Stakes victor Pompeii Ruler.


Looking forward to a great night's racing   emthup

I love that description of TT:

"Australian Sprinting Legend".

Internationally, he is the best known Australian horse ever (and I'd include Phar Lap there).

Hope his old legs can carry him to victory one more time. Looks like a stiff test though.

Go the champ!!

The thing in the great one favour tonight is he should lead there imposter and hold the rail. Either that or he will make the imposter work hard to get to the fence.

If Takeover Target holds his spot i think he either wins, or they set the race up for the Hong Kong champ  Sacrd Kingdom.

I see fixed odds are currently suspended, is this scratching time up in that neck of the woods ?
