Singapore Racing - Weekend Review : 15th and 17th of March 2019

 Mar 20 2019

Trained by Michael Clements, Gingerella Horseform took another step forward when too strong leading throughout in the eighth event.

Only a recent addition to the Clements' stable, Gingerella began her career in Perth under the care of Simon Barrass.

A maiden winner at Bunbury in December 2017, Gingerella notably gave prominent owner Joe Singh his first overseas win.

The daughter of Singh’s top rated horse Gingerbread Man, Gingerella is clearly trending the right way, notching up her third straight win on Friday night.

Ridden by Vlad Duric, Gingerella adopted her customary position on-speed, holding the rail with the Leslie Khoo trained Shoot Up High Horseform pressing up on the outside.

Travelling well coming into the straight, Gingerella gave a good kick and quickly dropped off Shoot Up High, drawing 3L clear inside the 200m.

Displaying a good turn of foot, she gave her rivals little chance, holding that 3L margin to the line.

Improving 11 pounds on her last start win, Gingerella continues to impress and ran decent time in the process.

She was marked close to 2L quicker than handy filly Siam Vipasiri Horseform (winner of race 7) and when looking at sectional adjustments, she has more to come.

A winner of four of her eight starts, including three minor placings, Gingerella has thrived in her new surroundings and it's hard to pinpoint just where she will end up.

Rising 7 points on the official ratings (73>80), it certainly won't be easy at her next start, however if she is going to contest better races, she needs to continue to raise the bar.

Her racing pattern is another big tick and she can followed with interest.

Out of the same event, stablemate Siam Blue Vanda Horseform is a must follow.

A three-year-old taking on the older horses, he definitely held his own when working home well to finish third.

While safely held (3.3L) his closing splits were very good and he is back as good as ever.

Only lightly raced, he has displayed above average ability in five starts and if able to build on that first up effort, another win isn't far away.

On Sunday, the Alvin Tan trained Galvarino Horseform notched up back to back wins, when making the rise to Class 4 company.

An impressive maiden winner two back, Galvarino again proved too strong on-speed when leading throughout over 1200m.

A problem horse for Tan early, Galvarino looks to have put his bad habits behind him and can finally deliver on the early promise he showed.

Both performances this time in have been very strong against the clock and he can continue his upward spiral.
