Alysha Collett has already landed a plum ride in Singapore with her booking for the Kiwi-bred Countofmontecristo in the S$1 million Lion City Cup later this month.

The New Zealand jockey will make her Kranji debut on Friday evening with six mounts, including Makkem Lad for Donna Logan in the first Leg of the Singapore Golden Horseshoe series for two-year-olds, the Kranji Nursery Stakes. 

Countofmontecristo’s trainer Michael Clements didn’t need to wait and see how Collett fared and quickly booked her services on last season’s champion Singapore three-year-old.

“He’s a horse I’ve seen on TV and I’m so rapt with the opportunity to ride him,” Collett said. “I’m more than happy to take it and give it my best shot.”
