Julius Caesar To Reign Supreme First Up

Promising galloper Julius Caesar appears well placed to make a winning return when due to contest the final event at Kranji this evening.

Only lightly raced Julius Caesar Horseform raced in good order last preparation having broken his maiden two back, before not beaten far behind Whose Else's Horseform prior to break.

Formerly based in Australia with Team Snowden, Julius Caesar displayed good ability in his four starts before transferred to Singapore in September last year.


Brought along slowly by new trainer James Peters, Julius Caesar finished a narrow second in his Singapore debut, before winning easily at his next outing.

While failing to salute as favourite at his next start, his performance still held merit and he is likely to have improved further off a break.

The return to the polytrack appears a positive and while safely held in his most recent trial, he was asked to do little under jockey Vlad Duric.

Also worth noting he carried 70kg when beaten just under 5L behind the Mark Walker trained Justice Light Horseform.

Julius Caesar has placed in two of three attempts fresh and arguably should be unbeaten on the polytrack.

Vlad Duric sticks aboard and is currently striking at 24% when combined with the Peters' stable.

From the middle draw Julius Caesar should adopt a fairly forward position and looks to receive all the favours.

When assessing Timeform weight adjusted ratings Julius Caesar is clearly the horse to beat, as if close to his peak, he certainly sets a decent standard.

In a race lacking depth, Julius Caesar should prove very hard to beat.

The consistent Lucky Giant Horseform is a not a noted flier on the polytrack, however he is racing in good form and has to be respected.

A winner of four of his 24 starts, Lucky Giant is certainly more than capable and appears well placed with the added aid of the claim.

A noted front-runner, he is expected to press forward and should be in this for a long way.

The Ricardo Le Grange trained Board Walk Horseform has mixed his form in recent efforts, but has trialled well and remains under strong notice.

A veteran of 68 starts, Board Walk has placed on 21 occasions, including 11 victories, nine of which have come on the polytrack.

From the wide draw he is likely to roll under Nooresh Juglall and if up to his best, he shapes as one of the hardest to beat.

The Saimee trained Trigamy Horseform flopped in his Singapore debut, however he rates well on his prior form from Australia and cannot be underestimated.

Formerly trained by Liam Birchley, Trigamy placed in two of his three attempts and could be better suited lining up on the polytrack.

On best form he has to be kept safe.

Good luck and happy punting.
