  • [Barrier No: 7]
  • Last year’s impressive Singapore Gold Cup winner began 2015 with a bang in Group 3 New Year Cup (1900m) on Polytrack, but has come up short at next three runs, beaten a whisker by Stepitup in the Group 2 QEII Cup (2000m) at his last start. Seems to a be bit dour these days, but is still in sparkling form as seen at his solid hit-out in a barrier trial on May 7. Has peaked for that race. Prefers a good track and will be one of the leading local hopes.

Patrick Shaw
Patrick Shaw, 58, started out as stable employee in 1988 before being upgraded with a professional trainer's licence by the Jockey Club of Southern Africa in 1990. Shaw was consistently among the Top-10 trainers in South Africa and counts his success with Teal in the 1995 Durban July as his biggest achievement before relocating to Singapore in 2001. His first horse of note was Palace Line, who won the International Group 3 Singapore Classic and the Singapore Guineas in 2002. Boosted by his close association with prominent South African owner Fred Crabbia, Shaw has prepared useful horses like Blizz Bless, Que Expresion and War Horn, but none comes close to Singapore’s champion sprinter Rocket Man. A winner of 20 races from 27 starts, Rocket Man rewrote Singapore history in 2011 when he became the first Singapore-trained horse to win an International Group 1 race, landing the Group 1 Dubai Golden Shaheen at Meydan in 2011. Two months later, he broke through for his first KrisFlyer win at his third attempt. That year also saw Shaw clinch his first trainer’s premiership title after preparing 78 winners. He made it back-to-back KrisFlyer triumphs when Ato saluted in 2012.The South African handler will be the busiest trainer at the Internationals this year, saddling a big team of five runners, including four in the SIA Cup.
Corey Brown
Corey Brown, 38, began riding in country New South Wales before moving to Sydney in 1992. Since landing his first Group 1 success in 1993 aboard Camino Rose in the Coolmore Classic, he has gone on to notch a slew of them, with his hat-trick of Group 1 wins on Epsom day 2003 the most memorable – Clangalang (Epsom Handicap), Niello (Spring Champion Stakes) and Unearthly (Flight Stakes). He ventured to Hong Kong in 1999 for two seasons and upon return, he teamed up with John Hawkes in Sydney, winning the 2001/02 jockey’s premiership. He joined the Lee Freedman stable in Melbourne in early 2007 before returning to Sydney following the Melbourne Spring Carnival that year. A noted big-race rider, Brown can count his 2009 Melbourne Cup victory aboard Shocking as his career highlight to date. Brown has been riding in Singapore since 2013, always finishing in the Top 5. Last year, he gained his highest acclaim when he guided his current SIA Cup mount, Quechua, to victory in the Group 1 Longines Singapore Gold Cup.
