Seoul Race 1: Class 6 (1200M) Special Weight A / KRW 30 Million

Picture: Korea Racing Authority

Competitive opener with two standouts. (4) WONDERFUL PASS has shown steady improvement across four starts to date, culminating in a 2nd place over 1300M on March 3rd when only breaking fairly but getting onto the lead and in being in front for most of the way. She draws nicely here and can go one better today. The danger is (6) SAMAEBEONJJEOK. She too has been showing progress with her latest being her best when 3rd over this distance on February 25th. She'll be on pace here and will be a big threat. (1) FINAL GO enters off an improved 2nd place on February 17th when coming from midfield over this distance. He was well beaten by a good winner, but a similar run should see him not far away. (7) MAX MA will be on pace and may be an each-way chance while (3) HAMPYEONG JANGMI is another in minor money contention.

Selections (4) Wonderful Pass (6) Samaebeonjjeok (1) Final Go (7) Max Ma

Seoul Race 2: Class 6 (1400M) Special Weight A / KRW 30 Million

It's hard to go too far past (1) DREAM CARD. He's finished no worse than 5th in four starts to date with his best being a runner-up finish over 1300M in January. He came up to this distance last time out on March 2nd and ran a fair 4th, coming from off the pace, and he should prove too strong for this small field. (5) DRAGON SQUARE has a tendency to run ungenerously, something he has done on three of fours starts. He has shown ability though and looked well in a mid-March trial. Harry Kasim may be able to straighten him (literally) out here. (7) NAOL JEONGSANG returned from a more than five-month absence to run 2nd over 1700M at the start of February. That was a tough ask first-up, but he has since had a further nine weeks off and is a place chance again here. (8) E.H. COCO and (4) SHOUT KURO others to consider.

Selections (1) Dream Card (5) Dragon Square (7) Naol Jeongsang (8) E.H. Coco

Seoul Race 3: Class 5 (1400M) Handicap / KRW 45 Million

(2) CAPTAIN TIME ran out an emphatic winner at start number three over 1300M when racing handy before pulling well clear in the final furlong in an all-filly maiden. She comes up class here, but the manner of that win suggests there is more to come, and she can win again here. (7) MOMO K has been ultra-consistent over his five outings. He got his maiden win just before Christmas at 1300M and has since run 4th and 3rd at this class, most recently over this distance on March 3rd, when he led for much of the way. He can go close again. That will mean overturning the form on (5) WORLD KING MAN, who won that March 3rd race at odds of nearly 30/1. He comes up a full 5kg in the weights but warrants more resect this time. (11) SHOOTING REVERSE was 2nd in that same race and shouldn't be far away, although once more must contend with the widest gate. (4) HIGH BORN ME another to consider for the places.

Selections (2) Captain Time (7) Momo K (5) World King Man (11) Shooting Reverse

Seoul Race 4: Class 5 (1300M) Handicap / KRW 45 Million

Competitive race. (10) BELOTERO was a maiden winner two starts back over 1300M before weakening and finishing back in the pack over 1400M on her first try at this class on March 3rd. She comes back slightly in trip today, the in-form CC Wong climbs in, and she can return to winning ways. (9) MYEONGJINBULLPAI got her maiden win in the snow just before the turn of the year and enters having run a solid 3rd place over 1400M on March 10th. She likes to settle back and run on and can be a danger late here. (5) SPECIAL HILL comes up in class having won handsomely over 1200M on March 3rd, making all. He is nicely drawn and while he may not get such a soft run to the front this time, he can measure up. (4) EXCELLENT TAN and (6) WONDERFUL SEEKING other possibles.

Seoul Race 5: Class 5 (1200M) Handicap / KRW 45 Million

Tricky race for fillies and mares. (11) BAEDARI KWAEGEOM enters off a 2nd place at this class over 1300M on March 2nd when he led for much of the way around. He comes back to the distance at which he registered his sole win, and while he comes up 3.5kg in the weights, he has strong claims here. (1) SAENAE VIVA got her maiden win two starts back before finishing midfield on her first try at this class at the end of January. She comes in here off ten weeks out and from a good draw, can be on pace and in this a long way. (8) JEONGSEONGTIGER remains a maiden after six outings but comes up in class after a few too many near-misses, including as runner-up to Saena Viva. She is lightly weighted and shouldn't be out of her depth here. (3) FINE DAY and (7) ICE CREAM are others who can enter the calculations.

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

(6) AMAN BAROWS was a winner over this distance on February 18th when overcoming gate 10 to stalk the leaders and then work home very well. She comes up in class here but is lightly weighted and she has every chance of winning again. (7) NEMO PRINCE beat a couple of these on his way to 4th place at class and distance on March 10th. He likes to settle back and run on, and this is the kind of race he can pick up some prize money in. (3) MILLION PARTY has placed at class and distance and in this company can be on pace and in this a long way. (5) SEONGSILGONGJUPINK is second up after a lengthy absence and may improve at what will probably be a big price. The returning (10) COMPLETE LUCKY trialled well and could be a factor on her first start since last May.

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

Small field and (7) PINE FARM shapes as a warm favourite. It is fair to say she doesn't win out of turn, but she has been a model of consistency in her recent starts. She has run good times for this distance and her usual performance here should see her come home on top in this modest company. (9) HIDDEN BLADE comes back in trip after recent spins around 1700M. She is very lightly weighted and can improve on recent finishes. (4) TROT QUEEN has the fastest time among these for the distance and while her latest couple of runs have only been fair, she was a close 2nd at this class over 1200M as recently as December 30th and she can improve here. (6) HANGANG JILJU and (8) TOHO SKY others in contention for the places.

Selections (7) Pine Farm (9) Hidden Blade (4) Trot Queen (6) Hangang Jilju

Seoul Race 8: Class 4 (1600M) Handicap / KRW 75 Million

Fillies and mares only here. (9) BADEN BADEN enters off a 3rd place finish over this distance on March 2nd having come from off the pace. She carries a feather weight here, and third up this preparation, she can win. (1) JEDI FORCE returns to action for the first time since last August when she was 3rd at this class over 1400M. She looked well when narrowly winning a March trial and while she will need this, she can go well first-up at what should be a generous price. (10) HERO LEGEND comes in having run 3rd at this class over 1400M on March 9th. That was her best finish to date and the step up to a mile can suit. (2) MADISON MOUNTAIN and the up in class last start winner (4) ARCH MEMORY are among others who can enter the calculations.

Seoul Race 9: Class 4 (1600M) Handicap / KRW 60 Million

Small field here. (4) MY KHAN was a beaten favourite at this class and distance on March 2nd, racing handy and only going down narrowly in a tight finish. CC climbs aboard today and that could be the impetus needed to return him to the winner's circle. (2) GREAT STORM comes up rapidly in class having won his latest two over 1300M and 1700M. Despite that class rise, he carries his fair share of weight, but he draws very well, and he should more than measure up in this company. (5) URUS QUEEN was a big price winner at this class over 1700M on March 3rd, racing close to the pace throughout. That's the second time a row she has significantly outperformed her odds and despite coming up 2kg, she will surely warrant more respect today. (7) HUIMANG CHAMP and (3) BEOLGYO CHADOL are others in the placing frame.

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

(8) E-DANAEUN comes in having run 2nd in his latest two at a mile and at 1800M and both at this class, coming from off the pace. He comes up 3kg in the weights, but he has won at this distance already and he can settle behind the speed here and prove too strong late on. (3) CLUB D ended a strong of 3rd places in fine style with a win over this distance on March 10th. He is up in class but down in the weights and should be competitive again here. (7) DIA KEY comes up in class too. The seven-year-old has been in excellent form of late and coming down in the weights to the tune of 4.5kg, he can be considered for the places even though he has only raced once at this distance. (5) WONPYEONG COD and (10) G MOTION, the latter who needs his latest outing dismissed after a troublesome start, are others to consider.

Selections (8) E-Danaeun (3) Club D (7) Dia Key (5) Wonpyeong Cod

Seoul Race 11: Class 2 (1400M) Handicap / KRW 90 Million

(2) WOLF PLAY ran out a winner at this class over 1800M on March 9th having led from gate to wire. He comes up a full 4.5kg in the weights but comes back in trip and into a good gate, and he can make all once more. (1) SKY MANGCHI scored at class and distance on March 17th, coming from off the pace. He too comes up by the same 4.5kg to carry plenty but still looks competitive in this small field. (5) MAGIC GRACE was 4th behind Sky Mangchi three weeks ago, continuing a good run of recent form. She gets plenty of weight from the favourites and should be in the mix again. (6) RAON THE GOLD and (3) DAEMUL are the other placing chances.
