GHALIB picked up his third Kranji Stakes A win in his last four starts when accounting for three rivals in the set-weight event over 1400m at Kranji here today.

GOLDEN MONKEY started odds-on ($7) favourite but GHALIB, with five-time Singapore champion jockey astride, stole the thunder by leading throughout to win by one and a half lengths.

There was a question mark if Ghalib could win today as I read that Golden Monkey was the second-best horse in Singapore. So, all the more I have to try and beat him right?" quipped Nunes.

"He’s (GHALIB) in great form. It was a small field and nobody went in front, so we took the lead and I could dictate the pace," said Nunes.

"When I asked for him at the top of the straight, I still had plenty underneath. He accelerated very quickly from there and put maybe one or two lengths on the field.

"I was worried about the 1400m, but the small field helped him. But going forward, I think 1200m is definitely better for him."

We knew he (GHALIB) can sprint," said trainer Steven Burridge.

"So the (Group 1) Lion City Cup (over 1200m on July28) is definitely an option. We could freshen him up for a crack at that race.

"But he is a four-year-old and might get the mile, so the (Group 2) Stewards’ Cup (1600m) in two weeks’ time (on 30 June) is on the table too.

"It’s a good dilemma to have but I’ll see how he pulls up after today and discuss with (owner) Mansoor (Gandhi) and Manoel."

It was the seventh win 12 starts in Singapore for GHALIB. The son of I Am Invincible was his only run at two in Australia and was placed once in five starts at three.
