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 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.

Rocket ready to launch first-up

Promising four-year-old ROCKET HORSE makes his long-awaited return to racing as he aims for a 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 runner-up 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.

Apis to make ammends

The four-year-old galloper, APIS, seems poised for a return to victory in the 1200m Class 4 contest at Ipoh on Sunday.

Since debuting locally in September last year, APIS has competed five times in the country, securing one win and two minor placings. The Spirit Of Boom gelding broke his maiden status three starts ago with an impressive victory over 1100m, defeating the talented three-year-old and recent Wilyah Silver Bowl winner, Military Flag, in November.

APIS has managed two placings in Class 4 company, including his last start which resulted in a commendable third place finish a fortnight ago, despite being trapped wide without cover throughout. At the weights, he should prove to be a formidable contender in his first visit to the Ipoh circuit.
