YULONG HOLY FLYING (7) – Let down late at his last start, passing a few tired runners. This is an average field and he may be able to come through with a bit of luck.

SOUTHERN GLORY (1) – Knocking on the door again. Just failed last time out. Should be able to make presence felt.

KUBERA’S CHIEF (2) – Had no weight on his back when he won scoring all the way last time. Stiffer task but he can still pinch a place if he gets away cheaply.

ROAN RANGER (4) – Quirky customer who pops up for the odd good run once in a while. Hard to trust him 100% but a place is not beyond him. Well drawn.


IN THE BLACK (12) – Trialled like a bomb in his first trial with the blinkers showing good early pace and running 61.17 with the trial conducted eight metres off the fence. Trialled well again the second time without the blinkers. Can lead and win.

EASY SOUTH EAST (7) – Has won a trial since a solid showing on debut when third behind Tax Free. Will be fitter now and can prove a strong chance.

GAMELY (1) – Fit and honest. Should get up on the speed here and will keep whacking away solidly.

THE JEWELLER (6) – Has been freshened up and could improve here back to 1200m. Has shown enough in the past to be highly competitive in this class of race.


SOUTHERN WIND (2) – Newcomer who was ridden out to beat last-start winner Grand Koonta at his barrier trial on February 21. Looks forward. Include in calculations.

FIRE AWAY (3) – Debut winner who then lost no admirers at his next three runs. Makes his comeback under new trainer and should have his fair share of admirers.

DREAMWEAVER (4) – Has not been showing the same early gate speed of late. Not much he could do behind the smart My Dreamliner last time out. Can show some cheek if he gets to bowl along upfront.

LUCKY MASTER (9) – Tends to be too outpaced in his runs. Rises in grade. No weight on his back. Chances enhanced if he can be posted closer to the speed.


PURPLE RAIN (5) – Former Malaysian who acquitted himself very well at his Kranji debut with a third place to Eastiger after leading. Scored a thumping three-length barrier trial win on March 5. Looks like he will be a popular pick here, especially from the low draw.

CRAZY DREAMS (2) – Speedy sort who does capitulate rather easily, though. Can hang on for a place if he is left alone upfront.

SILVER JOY (1) – Not beaten far off at his first attempt in open company on Polytrack last time out. Form looks good on the training tracks. Reverts to turf, his winning surface at only win. Can sneak in for the minors.

TURF BEAUTY (7) – Did not enjoy a troublefree run at her last start. Still a maiden but has come close a few times. Not the worst.


CROUCHING SUN (7) – Ran a solid third at his racing comeback on February 15. Will strip fitter for this. Seems to perform better with blinkers on. Back on Polytrack. Go close.

JUMPIN JACK (6) – Three-time winner who has struggled at Class 4 level. Tackles slightly easier company here and can be given another chance.

THUNDERSTRUCK (4) – Will find this more challenging after narrowly scoring his maiden win last time out. Has trained on and looks to have improved a couple of lengths. Place claims.

OTTAWA (1) – Down in grade. Not the most reliable customer around but if in the mood, he does have a nice turn of foot which can come in handy here.


ALAMAK (10) – Steamed home for third first-up from a short let-up. First go over 2000m but runs like he will run out the trip on his ears.

WAIALAE (8) – Another one who seems to be inching close to his best form. Doesn’t win often but on his last run, he has to be a major factor in this, even if the distance is a query.

LARRY (11) – Out-and-out stayer who will be at home over this trip. Takes on stronger lot but his stamina is not in question. Can finish in the money here.

LIM’S PRIDE (1) – Progressive sort who won’t be out of his depth in this going with his four runs this prep, which included one win, albeit in inferior class.


SIAM VIPASIRI (7) – Exciting filly resuming. Showed good form at her barrier trials. No reason why she can’t show up first-up.

JOMO (1) – The bubble has well and truly burst for the big guy, who has now tasted two defeats in a row. Had every chance but stayed rather one-paced when the chips were down at his last run. Will have to burn some petrol from awkward alley. Can still atone.

SACRED REBEL (3) – Ran on well on debut. Stable in form. If he can reproduce the same turn of foot on turf, he will be right in the mix.

JULIUS CAESAR (2) – Showed a return to form at his last start. Better known as a Polytrack specialist but his last good performance on turf does indicate some versatility there. Gets four-kilo claim. Keep safe.


SIAM BLUE VANDA (4) - Progressive type who has shown ability. Resumes after being spelled following his first career preparation. Versatile customer who is well drawn to perform, so expect bold showing.

GINGERELLA (2) - Remains unbeaten in two career outings in Singapore. Both wins have come from on the pace and she is well drawn to do so yet again. This is definitely a step-up in grade but she has the progression to be a major player.

MADE IN RUSSIA (3) - Has tended to mix form since his dominant debut win. Will find this assignment easier than most recent and is capable of contesting the business end on best efforts. Don't ignore.

BENGAL LANCER (8) - Returned fairly first-up from an extended break. Will strip fitter for this affair and is well drawn to get an economical run. Worth monitoring the parade/market.
