Top Sydney based jockey Tommy Berry teamed up again with the John Moore trained Dan Excel to record back to back wins in the Group 1 SGP$3m Singapore Airlines International Cup (2000m) at Kranji in Singapore last Sunday.

Berry was able to dictate the pace and led all the way before holding off the well performed Military Attack to win by half a length with Quechua finishing in third spot.

The result was fantastic for Australia with the first three placegetters all ridden by Australian jockeys with Zac Purton on the runner up Military Attack and Corey Brown partnering third placegetter Quechua.

Dan Excel showed that he has the wood on the Casper Fownes trained Military Attack in the Singapore Airlines International Cup after the top Hong Kong galloper finished third last year when trained by Moore.

Berry said that he didn’t want to lead but when left in front was able to dictate the pace to record a memorable win.

“I didn’t expect to lead,” Berry told the Singapore Turf Club.

“He can be a bit keen, but I had the Japanese horse (Meiner Frost) on my outside and I know they normally go from a long way out, but he was nice enough to leave me alone.

“I knew I would not get a better run and I was like waiting on the count for a horse to run me down. When the Japanese horse came to put a bit of pressure at the home turn, I let him go and he went full speed ahead.”

Moore brought Dan Excel to Australia during the Spring of 2014 with a run in the Group 1 $3m Sportingbet Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley in mind, but his campaign had to be abandoned when he developed a throat infection.

“It was a great effort to bring him back to this level especially after his throat operation in Sydney,” Moore said.

“We backed him off and when I spoke to the vets, they were confident he would be back, and I would say he was in even better condition than last year.”

Dan Excel subsequently underwent a throat operation before he returned to the racetrack in Singapore in February and Sunday’s win was his first from five starts this year.

    What you posted made a bunch of sense. But, consider this, suppose
    you added a little information? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you
    added something that makes people want more? I mean Berry and Dan Excel win back to back Singapore Cups – HorseRacing.com.au is kinda boring.
    You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how
    they create article titles to grab viewers to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two
    to get people interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might make your blog a
    little livelier.

  28. Egli Diana Pinto

    for that purpose, and take the hottest news.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your theme. Appreciate it

  39. Lelio Vieira Carneiro

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.

    In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the internet will be much
    more useful than ever before.
