Berry Back For Singapore Gold Cup
The Gr1 Singapore Gold Cup (2200m) meeting on Sunday will be boosted with the addition of one-day visiting jockeys Tommy Berry, Craig Newitt and Mark du Plessis in the Kranji riding ranks, reports turfclub.com.sg. Top Sydney jockey Berry won last year's edition with Tropaios and is back to ride the Michael Freedman-trained French import in his title defence bid. Leading Melbourne jockey Newitt, who is already licensed to ride in Singapore for six months from 1 January 2015, is booked aboard Goodman for trainer Laurie Laxon while New Zealand-based du Plessis, who is no stranger to Singapore, will attempt to win his third Singapore Gold Cup with the David Hill-trained Flax. Race favourite War Affair will attempt to become the first horse to clean sweep the Singapore Triple Crown in the same year when he takes his place in the Gold Cup field on Sunday.
