Singapore Racing: Sunday Selections Nov 26
It will be a big day of racing in Singapore Sunday lots of Novice, Maidens and Class 4/5 races but it should still be an interesting day.
Here are the selections for Singapore Sunday from Knightsbridge Bloodstock. Remeber if you are interested in owning a horse in Singapore contact Knightsbridge, they breed, race and syndicate horses in Singapore.
RACE 1: CLASS 5 (1) – 1400M COURSE B (SC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 12:55 PRIZE MONEY: S$35000
This is the hardest race of the day so if you are running late to Kranji don’t rush, if you are compelled to throw money at this then the Stephen Gray trained SIR REGINALD (3) has been racing well of late and should have the measure of this Class 5 field. It has proven to be a lethal combination Vlad Duric and Stephen Gray. WHITE COFFEE (5) who is almost as old as me still has a few good runs left in him, the drop in class will help. RACING TALENT (11) gets a 1kg allowance and that should be enough to have him in the minors.
Stephen Gray just bought some nice horses in Karaka so if you are not buying one of us SMH, you should check out what he has on offer at http://stephengrayracing.com/ you wont go wrong.
1.SIR REGINALD (3)
2.WHITE COFFEE (5)
3.RACING TALENT (11)
RACE 2: OPEN MAIDEN (WEIGHT FOR AGE) – 1100M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 13:25 PRIZE MONEY: S$35000
Next up we have a Maiden with 3 unknown horses that always makes punting with confidence tough, if your still not at Kranji for this one stop somewhere for a beer, if the urge is to strong then TRIGAMY (2) with the addition of blinker-pacifiers looks the one to beat, he will lead and in this type of race that helps, he will avoid all the trouble in running and should hang on for the chocolates. Watch the betting on MYSTIC PRIDE (6) this is his first start, his trials read like a horror story but if you watch the last one he jumped well and the jockey did nothing to encourage him home (Check it Out) I think he has a real shot at finishing in the placing. CHAMPION TEAM (3) has some serious behavioral issues but has some talent as well, the only reason he is a chance is his last trial was not bad and the fact that the owner and trainer have persisted with him makes me think there might be something there. Larneuk bred HIGH LIMIT (10) is my pick for the minors but remember I am extremely biased when it comes to Larneuk, O’Lohnro sired horses take time to develop but they are all heart, this is a weaker bunch than he has faced before and he has a shot.
2.MYSTIC PRIDE (6)
3.HIGH LIMIT (10)
RACE 3: NOVICE (SET WEIGHTS) – 1400M COURSE B (SC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 13:55 PRIZE MONEY: S$75000
So if you are still not at Kranji, hurry this is actually a pretty good race, LITTLE MASTER (9) CC Wong and Stephen Gray this time and a nice 1kg allowance should see him take this at reasonable odds, he has won his only start (Watch here) he was a bit green and had to work for it but he got there in the shadows of the post. JUSTICE SMART (1) has won in the UK and finished like the flash in his last outing, no doubt he will be doing the same here. REFRESH (6) was almost home on Gold Cup Day leading all the way except for the finish line, it was a bold run and he should be ready for this.
1.LITTLE MASTER (9)
2.JUSTICE SMART (1)
RACE 4: RESTRICTED MAIDEN (2 AND 3 YEAR OLD) (WEIGHT FOR AGE) – 1400M COURSE B (SC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 14:35 PRIZE MONEY: S$75000
KING OF HOUSEHOLD (1) has taken an eternity to get ready and still looked green last time out, but he is a big horse with plenty of ability when he gets going, if they can get this hore sorted he will be a great horse (watch his last start 2nd). LIM’S HUNTER (5) has had a good trial and has the benefit of the Boss on board, he has done enough to rate a chance in this, OVERSEER (9) i will throw in for the minors, lightly raced in a good stable and has a nice easy action.
1.KING OF HOUSEHOLD (1)
2.LIM’S HUNTER (5)
RACE 5: OPEN BENCHMARK 67 – 1000M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 15:15 PRIZE MONEY: S$60000
OLYMPIAN EAGER (1) our best bet tonight is a monster, literally he is the biggest horse in Singapore and is prone to a bit of injury, but he is in and sound and better than the rest of these he is one of our best bets of the night. CONILAD (4) beat Olympian Eager in a recent trial and he looks like he is ready to run a decent race fresh. CADET (6) has been training like a champion and look the danger here, CONILAD (4) beat Olympian Eager in a recent trial and he is worth respect.
1.OLYMPIAN EAGER (1)
RACE 6: CLASS 5 (2) – 1400M COURSE B (SC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 15:50 PRIZE MONEY: S$35000
A dodgy bunch going around in this one ANY RUMOUR (6) seems to have a dislike for the finish line, the old fella has not won a race in 2 years, but a good draw and Duric on board might see him get the Chocolates one last time. METTLESOME (4) looks like he is on the improve. RIVER FORTUNE (7) has been racing better horses, he hasn’t been beating them but still this will be much easier and he may have a shot, if you have anything else to do, do it and skip this race.
1.ANY RUMOUR (6)
3.RIVER FORTUNE (7)
RACE 7: CLASS 4 (2) – 1200M COURSE B (SC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 16:20 PRIZE MONEY: S$60000
HARVEYWALLBANGER (6) is a new horse after putting on the pacifiers he is our other best bet of the night, he has drawn wide so you may get some value, he is a better horse than the rest of these on his day. MELTING POINT (1) is a solid Aussie performer who was taken to Singapore and thrown on the dirt for 2 starts, no idea why, but he is back on the turf and is a threat.COPACABANA (4) was reasonably impressive last time out and worth consideration.
2.MELTING POINT (1)
RACE 8: CLASS 5 – 1100M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 16:55 PRIZE MONEY: S$35000
WAR STORY (4) is young and fast and that should be enough to get him home here, good effort last time out, TRIGGER MAN (3) is older than me and deserves a nice green pasture somewhere but he is the quality horse of the race, recently though he has lacked his trademark late turn of foot but remains a place chance. SATELLITE MASTER (2) has had more stables than I have had hot dinners but has remained a good horse, if the owners would leave him alone he might have a shot at winning a few, he is our selection for the minors.
1.WAR STORY (4)
2.TRIGGER MAN (3)
3.SATELLITE MASTER (2)
RACE 9: CLASS 4 – 1700M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 17:25 PRIZE MONEY: S$60000
SHE’S THE ONE (9) up in class but in exceptional form and could go close here, she should be value, I do not usually tip filly’s or mares in Singapore but we have had a good run backing Filibuster, anyway she is the one for us in the 9th. While we are on it lets throw another mare in for 2nd JUSTICE LASS (4) in good form and has run up against some smart horses that the first “Girl Power” Quinella I have ever liked in Singapore. LIM’S ARCHER (2) is facing a new track but he is a good horse and I am sure the trainer has shown him the surface before.
1.SHE’S THE ONE (9)
2.JUSTICE LASS (4)
3.LIM’S ARCHER (2)
RACE 10: CLASS 4 (1) – 1200M COURSE B (SC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 18:00 PRIZE MONEY: S$60000
A nice race to round out the night in Singapore, FIRST LIGHT (3) was robbed last time out in my opinion, he copped sever interference but lost the protest, he will redeem himself tonight in the last, he is drawn well and should win. MAGIC WAND (5) is as green as the Kranji grass but in a good stable and they would have been working on the issues has a serious claim here, IMPERIAL FALLS (4) is bred to be a champion, he is still getting use to Singapore but worth watching.
