Back in Singapore for the first time since he last rode here six years ago, Ryan Curatolo was off the mark in his very first ride astride COMMANDER JONES in the opening event at Kranji here today.

The Frenchman, who has been granted a licence for the year, had the New Zealand gelding settled just off the pace in sixth position.

Curatolo had to wait for an opening in the early part of the home stretch before sending his mount after the leaders.

SIMON had taken over the lead from the early pacemaker DELILAH at the 200m. COMMANDER JONES soon broke from the cashing pack to go after the new leader.

COMMANDER JONES hit the front 100m out and soon after SMOKE AND MIRRORS came charging home but Curatolo kept his mount going to win by half a length.

"Itís nice to be back, and a winner at my first ride too." said Curatolo who has ridden in Qatar, Dubai and the USA since he was last here.

"This horse (COMMANDER JONES) never used to settle," said trainer Tan Kah Soon.

"Today, everything worked out good. He dropped his head and was settled.

"I was worried when he hit the front too soon because he likes to look around, but thatís because of his immaturity. He can stay a mile no problem."

It was the gelding's maiden win in eight starts.
