SINGAPORE AIRLINES INTERNATIONAL CUP: Military Attack (Zac Purton) is a clear winner of Kranji's headline race.
Moore-Purton attack pays off in Singapore Cup
words bySTEPHEN HOWELL IN SINGAPORE
Anything Brett can do Zac can do better … Australian jockey Zac Purton won the $3 million Group 1 Singapore Airlines International Cup (2000m) at Kranji last night less than an hour after fellow Hong Kong-based Aussie Brett Prebble won the other Group 1 race on the card, the KrisFlyer Sprint (1200m).
And like Prebble's win on Lucky Nine, Purton's on Military Attack came on a horse owned and trained in Hong Kong. There was, however, an extra Australian connection, the winner being trained by John Moore, son of a Hall Of Fame jockey, the late George Moore. John has lived in Hong Kong since the early 1970s.

@LeighAhrens they might rush him off to Saeed bin Suroor!
not sure Epaulette is the bravest in a dice, but when there is speed and the leaders are coming back to him, he will always look good.
Set up for the class horse with the big finish .. enter Epaulette.
Not sure what the tactics were on Your Song. Suicide. Didn't need to go forward as there would have been a heap of pace on anyway.
