Korea Preview -17th Septrmber 2017

Korea: Seoul Racecourse– Sunday September 17, 2017

Seoul Race 1: Class 6 (1000M) Allowance / KRW 22 Million

Three debut-makers but it’s the most experienced among the others, (8) FANTASTIC QUEEN, who gets the nod. She was 2nd over this distance on August 20th and should have too much. (3) CHOWON YEOJEONSA and (6) JEONSIN MUKYANG haven’t shown much yet but may be a little more progressed at this stage than the rest although (4) CONKER did show improvement last time. The debut-makers can’t really be backed first-up but at a push, you’d take (7) MACH SEUNGNI as being most likely to run well.

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

Tricky one here but (6) SIMON RICH perhaps has the edge. He wasn’t too far away when running 4th of eight over this distance two weeks ago and turns around quickly here. He should be on the early pace. (2) MAGGIEUI CHUEOG also improved last time albeit in weak company and can go well once more while (4) SHUMA and (1) C.K. QUEEN should also be in the hunt.

 Seoul Race 3: Class 5 (1000M) Handicap / KRW 40 Million

 Big field and any number of prospective winners. (3) YEOKJEONUI SUNGAN was beaten six-lengths by a good winner over this distance on August 20th and just about gets the nod here. She’ll need a good start though. (2) NAMWON QUEEN and (7) RAON MAKER are also likely to be away quickly and can go close while an intriguing entry is (12) BARIME CAMP. She got her maiden win at 1300M at the end of July and steps back in trip here with the champion jockey aboard. (4) RAON QUANTUM is also in the hunt while (11) PYEWOL SUHWA, an eye-catching class 6 winner last time out, can’t be ruled out completely.

Seoul Race 4: Class 5 (1300M) Handicap / KRW 40 Million 

(4) DAEHAN GANGSAN was a four length winner over this distance on August 13th. He is up in class today but could well be the one to beat once more. (8) YEONDARA comes in after a strong 2nd at class and distance on August 20th and will be dangerous. (3) DUMANGANG was back in 5th that day and can get closer this time. (1) GWANAK HAMSEONG and (2) LIVE POWER are others to take into consideration.

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

 (7) TRUE TIMBER enters following back to back 2nd place finishes at class and distance and looks most likely to score in this all filly contest. She usually settles in the middle of the pack and has a strong finish. (1) GAMGYEOGUI SUNGAN comfortably beat (10) PUREUN JILJU and (3) LITTLE ANGELS on what was just her second start as the trio ran 2nd to 4th over the minimum distance on August 19th. She’s up in distance for the first time today but should be competitive while the pair she beat should also be looking to find the money once more. (6) JANGSAN JEPAE has also shown plenty of promise across three outings so far and should be a threat, likely setting the early pace.

 Seoul Race 6: Class 4 (1200M) Handicap / KRW 60 Million 

(1) BEST TEN was 3rd over 1300M on her first try at this class in July. She enters off an eight-week layoff and should have too much for this lot, likely leading from gate to wire. The wonderfully named (2) HAEKHANGGONGMOHAM is up in class following his second win in five starts and looks to have potential for more as does (4) SAEBYEOGI, a very quick winner at the minimum distance last time. His two previous tries at further than 1000M haven’t gone well but he can be ready for another go. (7) SMART BOBAE is also rapidly rising up the classes and must be taken into account while (6) ARGO MELODY comes in off a solid 2nd place at class and distance and has claims again.

 Seoul Race 7: Class 4 (1300M) Handicap / KRW 60 Million 

Two standouts here with both (2) SKY VELVET and (7) JEONGAN KINGDOM coming in off 4th place finishes in competitive races. The latter was perhaps a touch more impressive so we’ll side with him. (1) SOCCER HERO makes his first start since winning over this distance in July. He carries an extra 5kg today but can still go close while (8) HELL CAT and first-time starter (10) MIGHTY SSING also look to have claims, the latter looking especially well in for a debut.

Seoul Race 8: Class 4 (1700M) Handicap / KRW 60 Million 

(8) GWANGYA BULGIDUNG was a six-length winner on her first try around two turns on August 13th and while she’s up in class today, she carries very little weight and can win once more, leading from the early stages. The main danger is the experienced (9) SEUNGNISARANG, who has been no worse than 4th in her last nine starts and will surely be close again. (3) SPECIAL SHINE was 2nd behind the promising Hibiki over this distance three weeks ago and can place again while (4) JOGYESAN and (5) YES YOU CAN are both better than their respective latest outings suggest.

Seoul Race 9: Class 3 (1700M) Handicap / KRW 75 Million 

Competitive race but following back to back 2nd place finishes, (3) SAMSEONG BULPAE is favoured to get things right today with Moon Se Young on board for the very first time. He’ll likely look to get on the early pace and can go all the way. Lots of others enter in solid form although we’ll go for (10) SOJUNGHAN MANNAM and the up in class (9) DOSI NONGBU to provide the stiffest competition with (8) DAEJANGBAK, despite a disappointing spin around 1200M last start, also in the frame.

Seoul Race 10: Class 3 (1800M) Handicap / KRW 75 Million 

(4) ROCKET QUEEN beat (1) ARGO FLYING as the pair raced 3rd and 4th over 1700M on August 20th. There was only a head between them that day and today they should really be battling it out for top honours. It could go either way. Further down the field that day was (2) BULKKOCHWANGJA and he can improve here while (5) CHEONUI GANGJA and (6) CHEONJI SEONGGONG looks best of the rest.

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

For horses rated 105 and down here and (11) DAISYAN and (10) PARANG JUUIBO came home 3rd and 4th behind what was briefly a track record setting time over 1200M just over a month ago. ParangJuuibo had previously been 2nd to Doraonpogyeongseon – 3rd in last week’s Korea Sprint – in the SBS Sports Sprint and he looks to be the pick among these. Daisyan is second-best while (3) HURI BARAM, class and distance winner in June, and the up in class (5) SUSEONG CAPTAIN also look capable of going close.
