The Captain to go two from two

New Zealand bred performer, Captain Twentytwo resumes in the 1175m Class 4 contest at Kuala Lumpur on Saturday and is on target for successive victories.

Captain Twentytwo  had displayed potential at the trials prior to his debut on December 10 last year when he led throughout over the 1075m trip on Track Two. The four year old met with heavy market support as he duly saluted by 0.75 lengths defeating Tau Keh Soh.

Captain Twentytwo  has maintained his form with an impressive four length trial win here at the end of last month and is a genuine chance to maintain his unbeaten record.

The Rocket returns to KL

Promising four year old, Rocket Horse makes his long awaited return to racing as he aims for the winning hat trick in the 1175m Max Two Stakes this Saturday.

Rocket Horse was off the scene for ten months prior to making his local debut in May last year where he finished 2nd over 1200m. The Former Australian galloper then led throughout when breaking the maiden tag a fortnight later over 1175m before scoring in similar fashion over 1075m on June 18.

With two wins from as many starts on the inner track, Rocket Horse should utilize his early pace and prove hard to beat first up.
