SINGAPORE - Fresh from his double last Sunday, Australian conditioner Cliff Brown will be looking to add to that success at Kranji on Friday night.

Brown saddled Gold Dancer and Beauty Supreme to win their respective 1,400m victories and is hoping the latter can make the mark at a higher grade.

Beauty Supreme is one of three horses that Kwok Siu Ming of Beauty Stable has in Singapore and Brown explained there may be more on the way.

"Mr Kwok is a newcomer to Singapore racing and has one horse with Michael Clements and two with me, and is looking more closely at Singapore racing," he said.

"He has a number of horses racing in Hong Kong and it was good to get a winner for him. Beauty Supreme is the only one of the two he has with me that has raced and the horse had been unlucky a couple of times before winning on the weekend.

"It was great he was able to fly in from Hong Kong for the meeting and be a part of the win.

"It adds that little bit more to the win for everyone in the stable when the owners can be on-course and enjoy their success.

"It was a good win and I think he'll have some fun with this horse in Singapore and we should be able to pick up a few more winners for him along the way."

While Beauty Supreme won't be in action on Friday night, a promising member of his team makes his reappearance in what Brown hopes might lead to contesting some Group 1 races down the track.

Brown has ZAC SPIRIT engaged in the $75,000 Class 3 Stakes over 1,200m in Race 3, with the gelding lining up for his first run since June.

He will have the services of Joao Moreira.

Zac Spirit contested the final two legs of the Singapore Three-Year-Old Challenge last April and May, finishing third behind Stepitup in the Group 2 Singapore Three-Year-Old Classic over 1,400m, before running fourth to the same galloper in the Group 1 Singapore Guineas over 1,600m.
