GRAND CROSS returned to the winner's circle after sporting blinkers for the first time in three starts this season at Kranji here tonight, after abandoning the gear in his last two runs.

The Fastnet Rock gelding had scored twice with blinkers last year, both times with Vlad Duric astride.

The four-year-old finished fourth to ELUSIVE EMPEROR last time out and despite facing the winner again today, started even-money favourite in the Class 3 - 1200m handicap.

Punters' faith in GRAND CROSS was justified when the gelding made all the running to win by 1 3/4 lengths.

"The blinkers were back on, and he was fit and sharp tonight. A couple of runs under the belt did the trick," said trainer James Peters.

Peters went on to win the next two races with WINNING EXPRESS and DREAMWEAVER.

Duric picked up a second win on POSEIDON and the double put him back on top of the jockeys' standings with 19 wins.
