NEPEAN sprang a huge surprise to capture the S$250,000 EW Barker Trophy (1400m) at Kranji here today, leading all the way to win by one length.

The Roman Emperor gelding has have two starts since taking a break in November last year but beat only one home and returned lame in his last outing in September.

As such, the seven-year-old started at long odds ($276) in the Group 2 handicap today.

Nominated jockey Matthew Kellady was stood down after he became dehydrated and Mohd Zaki seized the opportunity to land only his fourth win of the season.

"This year has been so tough. I thought Iíd give up riding when I was stuck in Johor Bahru, I felt helpless I couldnít do my job," said Zaki who was among Malaysian jockeys who had to wait it out for the easing of restrictions to get back to the saddle in Singapore.

"But even when I got back, itís been very hard to get rides, donít even mention good rides."

Trainer Shane Baertschiger said: "This horse had surgery to both fetlocks (chips removed) one year ago, and after his last run, he pulled up very lame.

"We had him re-X-rayed and we found out he had arthritis to his off-fore fetlock. He had two weeks off, just walking and we then nursed him all the way to get into the EW Barker Trophy."

NEPEAN, who had a win at Randwick before coming to Singapore, had not picked up five wins in 19 starts at Kranji.
