Seoul Race 1: Class 6 (1300M) Allowance / KRW 40 Million

Small field of fillies to begin with and the champion jockey should get off to a winning start on (3) SAUVIGNON. She’s been getting closer over three starts to date and should have too much for these. (2) CUPID DOCTOR has also made a positive start to her career although Sauvignon’s experience over this distance is what gives her the edge. (4) RUBY BEOLKIN is two starts into a comeback following a layoff and was only narrowly beaten by Sauvignon last time so does have claims too but it’s slim pickings among the rest with possible (5) BABY STAR most likely to improve.

Seoul Race 2: Class 6 (1300M) Allowance / KRW 22 Million

Two standouts here who both look close to their maiden wins. (8) WONDERFUL CHAMPION was a close 3rd over 1200M last time out and comes in fresh following eight weeks off. He’s not a fast starter but should be able to sit handy from gate 8 and finish strongly. The other likely one is (5) GIDONG DAEJANG. Much improved on first try at this distance last time out, he narrowly missed out on 2nd place and should make the running here. (9) STORMY also showed improvement when finishing 4th last time out while (1) JEGUKUI HUYE and (11) NEULPUREUN CHEONHA are also capable of finding the money.

Seoul Race 3: Class 6 (1000M) Allowance / 60 Million

Three of these have raced before, five haven’t and of those with experience, both (2) CITY ANGEL and (3) HIGH BEAT ran 5th. Neither were particularly impressive although probably did enough to be reasonably well fancied here but we should give a chance to some of the debut-makers. (5) BACK TO BACK looks the pick of them following a swift showing in a trial at the end of October while both (1) ACE CANT and (4) HWANSANGUI BIT also showed they know what they are supposed to do and have every chance of going well first up.

Seoul Race 4: Class 5 (1000M) Allowance / 40 Million

(7) LUCKY MISS was a three-length winner on debut over this distance on October 14th and while she steps up in class today, she is favourite to strike again. There will be plenty looking to get on the early speed and (1) REBECCA and (3) NAMWON QUEEN are contenders to do just that and stay on for the business part of the race. The latter was 5th behind (11) PARTY POWER last start but is better drawn to overturn that form today. (12) DREAM ROCKET was a solid 5th in a slightly tougher race than this at the end of September and can improve today.

Seoul Race 5: Class 5 (1300M) Handicap / KRW 40 Million

He didn’t really take to 1700M last start but still ran a decent enough 5th and back at 1300M today, (2) JEULGEOUN HAMSEONG should have every chance of adding to her solitary win so far. She’ll be joined on the early pace by (3) DALDARI, who ran 2nd to (8) YEONGAM ARIRANG at class and distance in September. Just like JeulgeounHamseong, the pair of them both stepped up to 1700M last time but with underwhelming results and both should be happier today. Sitting handy early should be (1) SHARK PARTY and (5) MALAKAS, neither of who have yet delivered at this level but still have potential.

Seoul Race 6: Class 4 (1700M) Allowance / KRW 60 Million

(10) HIBIKI was a class and distance winner in August, beating (6) GWACHEON WONDER and while he could only manage 6th place when favourite on his return three weeks ago, he’s probably worth another chance here. A major danger is the up in class (5) DAEGUNHAM, a four-length winner over this distance at class 5 a month ago while both (3) KING PLUCKY and (9) ANYANG CHEETAH step up to this trip for the first time and could well take to it. Both enter in decent form and both should be on the early pace. (11) STRONG SHINE actually beatHibiki last time and could go ok again under an apprentice jockey who takes some weight off.

Seoul Race 7: Class 4 (1700M) Allowance / KRW 60 Million

A solid 4th over the distance in slightly tougher company than this and the champion jockey taking over in the saddle stands (8) RAON TROY in good stead to score here. True, that performance was a little unexpected, but he looks to have every chance today and will likely be on the speed early. (1) TAEYANGUI HUYE is still looking for the breakthrough but has been close a couple of times and looks ready to go back up in trip today. He should be at the front early too. (7) JWACHEONGNYONG enters off back to back 4th place finishes and can match today while (2) SUN POWER and (9) COPALERO are others who can improve on recent form.

Seoul Race 8: Class 3 (1700M) Handicap / KRW 75 Million

(2) GHOST TOWN has won his latest two but while he can’t be ruled out, he’s up in class and distance and is likely to find both a challenge today. Having said that, it’s another one who is trying the distance for the first time that we’re putting on top in the shape of (3) SINGGEUREOUN GEOM. He was a strong 2nd in a good race over 1400M last time and looks the type to benefit from two turns. Back in July he beat (1) LEAD MONEY as the pair raced 1st and 2nd over 1300M and the latter finally joins him up at this level today following a pretty much all the way win over 1700M on October 15th. Lead Money looks nicely in here and could repeat. (5) GLOBAL DREAM and (7) YESANGBAEK SEUNG both enter in good form and can get close while 1300M track-record holder (11) GUTONGSA didn’t go well at this distance before but can’t be ruled out.

 Seoul Race 9: Class 3 (1400M) Handicap / KRW 75 Million

Tricky one this although (7) OKAY GOOD managed to beat three of these on his way to 3rd place over 1200M on October 14th and therefore just about slips in at top pick. He was on speed early that day and is likely to be so again, probably joined by (5) LIGER SOCKS who also beat a couple of these on his latest and should be in the frame. (8) BROADWAY SIN beat Liger Socks in August but was then behind Okay Good last time out. He’s yet another front-runner and another who could go well here. (2) ARCH ARCH and (6) BEONGAE FIGHTER poised to take advantage if the leaders go too fast.

Seoul Race 10: Class 2 (1200M) Handicap / KRW 90 Million

Banker favourite of the day here and that’s (5) JANGSAN CITY. He’s won two of his last three and beat (4) SNOW CHARISMA on his way to a very narrow defeat over this distance on October 14th. He won’t necessarily lead all the way but given a fair start, he should have too much. Snow Charisma is one of the ones who does have a chance of stopping him although (3) IGWANGSASEOK and (6) MENI MUSIC, 3rd and 4th when they raced each other at class 2 over this distance on September 24th perhaps look a bit more likely with (12) PRETTY BOY, a good winner at class 3 last time out, not completely out of it either.

Seoul Race 11: Class 1 (1400M) Handicap / KRW 110 Million

Nice competitive handicap to conclude with and really, almost anything could win it. (12) GAEULI JEONSEOL saw his five-race winning streak come to an end over 1800M at the end of September. All of those wins came around two turns but dropped back to 1400M today, it’s not impossible that he could put in a good performance. He’s certainly one of the fancies as is (10) CUPID POWER, who comes in off two encouraging peformances in very similar races. (9) DIPLOMATIC MISSION was well back behind Cupid Power in the first of those but is a class and distance winner and can be respected, while (4) YAHO SKY CAT and (11) BIG MOUNTAIN, 5th and 6th at class and distance three weeks ago are also capable of finding the money. The wildcard is (8) WINNER RED. Setbacks meant he never quite lived up to his early promise but he won a trial in good order only last week and could be interesting.
