RACE 1: CLASS 4 NON PREMIER – 1000M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 12:50 PRIZE MONEY: S$45000
Tough on to start proceedings with, mostly Class 5 horses going up a Grade to Class 4 SABIK (9) is the only one going down in Class, he has been racing against some of Singapore’s best horses and should find this much easier. INVINCIBLE MAN (6) won well last time out in Class 5, he doesn’t represent a danger but should be there abouts at the finish. GREAT SEVEN (2) another last start winner is worth considering for the placings.
RACE 2: RESTRICTED MAIDEN (2 AND 3 YEAR OLD) (WEIGHT FOR AGE) – 1200M COURSE E (LC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 13:20 PRIZE MONEY: S$85000
ZULU WARRIOR (10) is just starting his career in Singapore with only 2 starts so far and under the care of Stephen Gray, he looks to have done enough to be a real chance in this.BASILISK (1) is the in form contender rarely out of the placings today will be no different, serious danger. AYUTTHAYA (5) has been trialing very well and expect a bold showing on debut.
RACE 3: CLASS 4 PREMIER (2) – 1400M COURSE E (LC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 13:50 PRIZE MONEY: S$60000
The Le Grange trained SUPER POWER (3) looks to have this in the bag, the horse has not put a foot wrong lately, strong front runner and looked very fit at a recent trial. DALGETY (1) 1st start for this one in Singapore but raced and won impressively in Victoria has claims here. MARVEL HERO (2) recent stable change might have revived this horse, form has been ok and he should be finishing well.
RACE 4: OPEN MAIDEN (WEIGHT FOR AGE) – 1400M COURSE E (LC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 14:20 PRIZE MONEY: S$20000
Difficult Maiden race but KING OF HOUSEHOLD (8) has done enough to rate as the prime chance here, consistent and should break his Maiden today. INTROIT (1) another 1st starter for Singapore but has some reasonable runs in Australia, this does look like a drop in quality to what he has been racing against, chance. LIM’S MASTER (4) has had a freshen up and may perform better because of that, place chance.
RACE 5: NOVICE (SET WEIGHTS) – 1200M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 14:50 PRIZE MONEY: S$85000
WOODEN HEART (11) looks unbeatable on his last start win, this is a very nice Colt by The Factor and he is shaping up to be one of Singapore’s rising stars. OHYIOH (4) will be thereabouts at the finish based on his last run. CHOCANTE (6) a son of Fastnet Rock has been improving with every run, another horse to keep an eye on for the future.
RACE 6: CLASS 4 NON PREMIER – 1400M COURSE E (LC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 15:25 PRIZE MONEY: S$45000
No world beaters in this bunch, CHEETAH KING (9) should be value and goes well fresh has a chance in this. FIGHTING WARRIOR (2) inconsistent type but racing against weaker company and may run on well. GENERAL CONATUS (7) another model of inconsistency but rates a chance is this weak company.
RACE 7: CLASS 3 – 1000M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 15:55 PRIZE MONEY: S$80000
MOKASTAR (7) is the in form horse here and will prove hard to beat, walked in last start, has trialed well and looks to have the measure of the field. MACARTHUR (3) may surprise, he is a quality horse with Group 3 form, real danger. ELITE POWER (13) tough draw but will be finishing hard.
RACE 8: CLASS 5 – 1600M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 16:25 PRIZE MONEY: S$20000
JOYOUS (8) couple of good runs and has a good draw and a light weight, should be enough to see him take this. ARCHER COMPANY (10) has been in and out of work watch the betting, if he gets and support in the market he is fit and ready. JOYOUS (8) good run last time out has place claims.
RACE 9: CLASS 2 – 1400M COURSE E (LC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 17:00 PRIZE MONEY: S$100000
ECLIPSE SPLASH (7) will lead this field and the will be playing catch up in the straight, he has had a break but should be fit from recent trials. MIGHTY CONQUEROR (2) is a handy horse, up in grade here but has been running well, he will be just behind the leader and is most likely to mount a challenge in the closing stages of the race. CERTAINLY (6) no luck last time out and has a nice finish, he will be there at the finish.
RACE 10: CLASS 4 PREMIER – 1000M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 17:30 PRIZE MONEY: S$60000
YULONG FAST STEED (2) hard to go past this one, won a couple in Ireland and put in a reasonable effort at Royal Ascot, if he handles the harder ground in Singapore he should win this by a mile. BRINGER OF WAR (7) like this surface and the distance rates a chance. MY HORSE (9) is a Polytrack specialist and has to be considered.
RACE 11: CLASS 4 PREMIER (1) – 1400M COURSE E (LC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 18:00 PRIZE MONEY: S$60000
SAHARA EAGLE (2) another 1st start import, good form in Australia and should win easily if he has settled in to Singapore. LITTLE BIG MAN (8) has been racing well against better horses should beat the rest of them home. ONE KINABALU (4) for the minors.
