Race analysis and race selections for Friday's racing at Kranji

Singapore – 13 Jul 2018

RACE 1

MORALES (3) – Looks to be one of the leading chances in this tough race off the back of a handy third last start where he narrowly missed.

VENUS DE MILO (5) – Trialled the other day with a few gear changes (special bit, blinker-pacifiers, crossover noseband). Beaten a long was as the winner cleared out but she’s not the worst in this race.

GOLDEN SPARK (2) – This just might be his type of race. Watch the market for any support.  Should there be any, that is a positive sign.

DESTINY KNIGHT (4) – Now in the stable of Alwin Tan (ex-Stephen Gray). Interesting that he drops back to 1200m which has only yielded him one placing in the past.


RACE 2

SUN ELIZABETH (10) – Ignore last run when caught four deep and facing the breeze. Petered out in straight. Has drawn wide again, but if she can get in with cover, she can atone in this moderate affair.

SMOOTH OPERATOR (7) – Yard in form. Did show glimpses of quality at a couple of starts. Has drawn marble one. Good chance of making the board.

MAI DARKO (3) – Lightly-raced sort making his comeback. Plenty of trials under his belt. Fit and ready but may need the run. Low draw. Place chance looks better.

INTROIT (1) – First run for new stable. Showed some ability at four starts for previous trainer James Peters. Drops back in trip. Keep safe.


RACE 3

DREAMWEAVER (1) – Went around well fancied last start and loomed up as a winning hope. Boxed on okay for third placing and a win looks to come at short notice.

SILKINO (3) – He hasn’t been far away in recent efforts. Last run was better than it looked as he did encounter traffic issues in the straight.

SOLDADO (11) – Yet to win at this distance but he’s been in the money on three occasions. On recent runs deserves a spot in calculations.

SUN PRINCEPS (12) – A win and second from his two runs so far. Had every chance last time but wasn’t quite good enough. He is one of a number of other chances in what looks to be an open race.


RACE 4

EAGLE EYE (1) – Down the field in the Singapore Guineas at only his second start here. This Ricardo Le Grange-trained galloper has won a barrier trial since in good time (60.50) and would seemingly find himself in a very suitable race.

BENGAL LANCER (5) – Ran a screamer behind Derby contender Sky Rocket last time out and has ideal conditions here.

MAGIC CITY (2) – 7th in the Group 2 Stewards’ Cup and was far from disgraced in that race. Now back in grade and can certainly put up a big show here.

LIM’S KNIGHT (3) – Has a proven record at this grade, albeit with better form at slightly shorter. In good form and is one to include in multiples.


RACE 5

GOLD FAITH (1) – Never really let down like many were expecting him to last start. Prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt and follow again.

ACE HARBOUR (8) – Always competitive but hasn’t been able to get over the line first. Honest and needs to be included once again.

BILLY BRITAIN (5) – Arrives back into a suitable race where he can be competitive. Last win was on the Polytrack over 1800m in February off 57 points with Alan Munro riding. He’s now on 56 and guess whose back in the saddle!

CASEY (9) – He is no superstar at all but has some okay recent form to suggest he could be a player at value in this line-up.


RACE 6

PENNYWISE (1) – On form is the horse to beat winning both his races so far in good style. Seems to have plenty of natural ability and can continue on with his form, but has to overcome a wide draw.

LIM’S LIGHTNING (2) – Showed good ability to overcome an awkward barrier and win by 4L though still very green. Looks a good horse going forward and there should be plenty of improvement from a good barrier.

SIAM VIPASIRI (16) – Lined up two weeks ago on debut and fought on solidly. Should be value at the weights with only 54.5kgs, but the barrier of 17 negates that.

MR HOOPER (5) – Another that could be value in this race for an in-form James Peters. Another one who should have plenty of natural improvement as he did look a racy type on debut.


RACE 7

ANGHIARI (1) – Certainly looked like the winner and had them covered last time out. Just run over in the final stages. Looks like he should win at short notice.

THE ONE (3) – Stablemate of Anghiari who has won and placed second in his prior two runs. He was only beaten narrowly last start.

EVERTRUST (5) – Not a bad effort from him last start for third placing. Led them up and was collared early in the lane but boxed on well enough.

DRAGON (7) – Finally trainer Mohd Yusof was able to breathe a sigh of relief when this horse got over the line last start for the victory. He was close enough this time to be able to slingshot them late.


RACE 8

SUPER DENMAN (4) – Not beaten far last start back at the beginning of June. Finished third in a trial last week and will be fit and ready for this assignment.

BOARD WALK (5) – Stablemate of Super Denman who continues to hold his form solidly. Hasn’t had the best of luck in the last few runs with wide stalls.

GLORIA ECLIPSE (8) – She won a Kranji D by a short margin at her last performance. Should be worth following in this line-up.

GOOD CATCH (3) – Lines up from the stable of Donna Logan (ex-Ricardo Le Grange). Didn’t seem suited by the turf 1400m last time. This looks to be more his go.
