Heartlight has retained his unbeaten record following a successful debut at Kranji.
The Any Suggestion three-year-old made an instant impact from Mark Walker’s Singapore stable with victory yesterday over 1200 metres in the hands of Vlad Duric.
“He did everything right and he got a gun ride from Vlad,” Walker said. “I think he was in a weaker Class 4 race, but still, it is always hard to win first-up. He’s got a nice future here.”
Racing as Crossedem, Heartlight was a first-up winner for Cambridge trainer Stephen Marsh at Avondale in the spring before his sale.
