GOING: GOOD 4

Selangor Turf Club (Bm66+) 2200m

Track: GOOD 4   Sunny (Max: 39)   Rail: Out 9m.  

Good competitive staying contest to kick off the day's proceedings with not a great deal separating the main hopes. Speed anticipated from I Done It, Eleven Seconds, Tarquinn Shadow and Kronfeld.   ELEVEN SECONDS won impressively two back when ridden aggressively to lead. Didn't follow the same tactics last start and in the end it resulted in his undoing. Far better suited when let roll in front and if they do, he is sure to prove hard to run down. Over to you Brad Parnham. I DONE IT continued his good run of form last start and has to be respected while LET'S TWIST also holds solid claims.   SUGGESTED PLAY: Sticking with Eleven Seconds - Just hope Parnham lets him rip.
