Mighty Warrior to contest Derby
08 Jul 2016Trelawney Stud's 2013 NZB graduate Might Warrior (Savabeel x Pin Oak) will contest Sunday's SING Gr.1 Singapore Derby.
The James Peters trained Mighty Warrior is regarded as having the ability to stay all day. He has a short burst and needs to have an economical ground-saving run to enhance his chances.
Mighty Warrior did not get such favours at his last run in the Group 1 Patron's Bowl (1600m), a race which should be ignored. He was ridden positive and was caught wide for most of the trip, then got buffeted in the home straight and weakened out of it.
Mighty Warrior has drawn barrier No 2, which will be a huge asset this time. With any luck he will get the run of the race and he can stay on to be in the money.
