Meeting Preview

A very interesting night for punters with a couple of newcomers who have shown enough at the trials to consider at their respective Singapore debuts and a very handy type in ALIBI resuming.

In fact “handy” is perhaps an understatement given the 4YO has won four times from just eight career starts and has placed at Group level.

His last start in the EW Barker was good with heavy support and no reason to think the short spell wouldn’t have done him the world of good with some nice recent trials a pointer.

The BM83 field he faces in race 3 has some in-form runners - including last start winner, GRAND CROSS - but ALIBI should be more than up to the task with regular hoop, Vlad Duric, onboard.

The debutantes with winning hopes on the night include SOUTHERN MAN in the Restricted Maiden over 1200m on the Polytrack (race 2) and former UK galloper, GOLD FAITH, who may be value first up over 1400m in Class 4 Company (race 7).

Plenty of other good punting races including the lucky last where MAJOR TOM could be all the rage.

The NZ-bred gelding is setting his sights on the last two legs of the Three Year Old Series and could be hard to beat in Class 4 Company over 1400m.

However, RISKY ROCKEFELLER will find this company easier than what he been facing of late and could be hard to hold out in a race that looks very winnable - and hopefully at a decent price!

Best Bets: (ALIBI race 3, win), (NOVA STAR race 5, value) and (RISKY ROCKEFELLER race 9, value).

Bankers for Jackpots: Race 6 (6), race 7 (1, 2, 9 and 13), race 8 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8), race 9 (1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 10).

Please note the odds listed are "reference odds" only.

RACE 1: CLASS 5 (1) - 1100M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 18:20 PRIZE MONEY: S$35000

Larry says, "The emergency runner catches the eye in the opener so we will have to wait until Friday afternoon to see if GOOD LUCKY gets his chance in a race that suits. The 4YO broke through for his maiden win over 1400m on the turf three starts back and his form since has been good. A recent eye-catching trial has him under notice back on the Poly and he will go very close. Of the confirmed runners, BELIEVE IT OR NOT looks a very good winning option. The 3YO broke through two starts back and his effort from a wide gate last start was solid. He will find this easier after drawing the ace and could be hard to run down. MAGIC PAINT has won three of his last five starts - that is excellent form in this Company - and picks himself while MOTHER NATURE and BEST JADE both win without surprising on recent form."

RACE 2: RESTRICTED MAIDEN (2 AND 3 YEAR OLD) (WEIGHT FOR AGE) - 1200M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 18:50 PRIZE MONEY: S$75000

Larry says, "A very interesting Restricted Maiden with three of the main fancies either resuming or on debut. The debutante is SOUTHERN MAN who has had numerous local trials. He did miss the start at his most recent trial so we can put a line through that effort as his two previous trials has him going very close on debut. XIONG FONG resumes after placing at his last two starts and can win sans blinkers after a good recent trial. ENERGIZER looks the value runner given his poor form from his last campaign but he did pull up lame last start and his recent trial suggests he could race well. The most solid recent form going into this race is from ONE KINABALU and he looks the obvious pick on paper with market best guide on most runners including another debutante in LIM'S MASTER."

RACE 3: OPEN BENCHMARK 83 - 1200M COURSE B (SC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 19:20 PRIZE MONEY: S$100000

Larry says, "Another race where the horse to beat - ALIBI - is resuming after showing he was up to Open Company last start and two of his main competition - GRAND CROSS and ABSOLUTE MIRACLE - backing up after both racing well last Friday. Not many horses back up week-to-week in Singapore but GRAND CROSS won well when blinkers went on last start and is well worth following. ABSOLUTE MIRACLE had excuses over 1400m not to win last start and his winning form prior has him under notice. Most others have winning chance on best form including CONSTANT JUSTICE who could show up at his first run in Singapore on the turf."

RACE 4: OPEN MAIDEN (WEIGHT FOR AGE) - 1600M COURSE B (SC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 19:50 PRIZE MONEY: S$35000

Larry says, "Four horses look ready to break their respective maiden status in this race and it does look a raffle between ECLAIR SHADOW, JACKS SECRET, TAICHI BELT and RED RIDING WOOD. All four should get support and while you can make a case for them all, three did race against each other in a similar affair in February where JACKS SECRET finished second with TAICHI BELT and RED RIDING HOOD not far behind in third and fourth. No need to try to rearrange that order but ECLAIR SHADOW could beat them all given what he has shown and the 4YO also looks to have some upside as he should improve with race experience."

RACE 5: CLASS 5 (2) - 1100M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 20:20 PRIZE MONEY: S$35000

Larry says, "An extremely weak Poly sprint and very hard to pick the winner with any confidence. So an improver who finds himself in a suitable race in NOVA STAR could be one to watch. The 5YO looks to be struggling but a switch his only winning surface on the back of an OK recent trial could see a result with the market a good guide. The more obvious choice is LION WAVE. The 5YO hasn't won in 28 starts in Singapore - that is a concern - but did win two in NZ before arriving and is in very solid form in similar affairs to this. A maiden in SUPER RED also comes under notice on his last start placing while SECONDWAVE is also right in this on solid recent form."

RACE 6: OPEN BENCHMARK 74 - 1200M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 20:50 PRIZE MONEY: S$80000

Larry says, "As you would expect a very solid BM74 Poly sprint over 1200m and while we can make a strong case for more than a few runners, THE CAPITAL looks the one to beat. The former UK-based galloper was racing over much longer before arriving, however, his Singapore debut win over this trip and track in Class 4 was easily good enough to win again in this Company. The horses that keep him more than honest include SUPER SIX who has drawn wide but has four poly wins to his name and SUPER LINE who has won three times from eight career starts. At the top of the ratings, MR LUCK ran on well when resuming and while yet to win beyond 1000m, he has to be respected. Keep CONFLIGHT safe as he has to be given one more chance this preparation on Group winning form as a 3YO."

RACE 7: CLASS 4 (1) - 1400M COURSE B (SC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 21:20 PRIZE MONEY: S$60000

Larry says, "Too many horses with winning hopes in this race not to think that there has to be value about, however, as it stands CHALAZA is the one to be on. The 4YO won his maiden over this trip at start two and won over 1200m in Class 4 last start. So it would be silly to pick against him on winning form although this is a tougher field than he faced last start. MR FATKID has only win to his name but like CHALAZA, has had a very good start to his career and is yet to finish out of the places in four starts. He is more than up to Class 4 Company and wins this without surprising. Others that are big winning shows that could get out to value include last start winner REALLY CAPABLE from a wide gate, SUPERNOVA dropping back to his winning Class, GOLD FAITH at his Singapore debut after a good local trial, CONSTANCE'S SPIRIT at each-way odds and SUCCESSION on the support he received last start."

RACE 8: CLASS 5 - 1700M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 21:50 PRIZE MONEY: S$35000

Larry says, "Another Class 5 raffle and given it's the third leg of the Jackpot (or Quaddie), it looks a nightmare for exotic players. But we like the fact John Powell has stuck with MR CONNERY who had all sorts of traffic excuses last start and had his foot on the till prior in similar affairs to this. JP also jumps off WONDERFUL ERA who was a last start winner but happy to think he can also win with Alan Munro up. Plenty of others to watch including the maiden at the top of the ratings in CAPTAIN ROYAL, the big Class dropper in DRAGON G with Beasley a factor, GALLANT HEIGHTS and NATION THEATRE who are always a show in races like this and RACE FOR FAME who could improve lengths on the Poly."

RACE 9: CLASS 4 (2) - 1400M COURSE B (SC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 22:20 PRIZE MONEY: S$60000

Larry says, "A terrific race to finish the card and all eyes should be on the progressive 3YO MAJOR TOM who is gunning for a hat trick of wins. The Mark Walker-trained gelding is aiming for a crack at the remaining legs of the 3YO Challenge (1400m and 1600m) and is using this Class 3 event as a good sighter for his quest for feature glory. He may be short in the betting though and he will need to be good up against a Class dropping 6YO in RISKY ROCKEFELLER. The Australian-bred gelding has only won twice in Singapore from 12 starts but his recent form in good races has been more than up to winning in Class 4. The proverbial blanket goes over a plethora of other winning hopes with CATCH ME GREAT, HADES, BE BOLD, MILLENNIUM'S RULE and GOLAZO (value) all in the mix."
