RACE 1

ENDLESS – Drops significantly in weight after last starts win. Time on the clock was sufficient, can go well again.

INTREPID – Has to lug 59kg here once again which looks a big weight this small mare. Has won track and distance already though, big chance to be in the finish.

BEBOP – Solid run last start despite being wide throughout. Only knock is that despite winning multiple times over 1700m on poly, he is yet to break through over 1600m in his 16 attempts.

TONY'S LOVE – Won his only race to date track and distance. The big weight and wide draw look to be his only issues this weekend.

RACE 2

LUXURY BRAND – One of three runners with race experience. Just went under a nose at his debut on the turf behind his stablemate Fadaboy. Should improve naturally second up and draws the ace barrier to be nice and positive.

TYPHOON – His two trials have been okay in slow times. By the sprinting sire Merchant Navy which we have not seen too many of up here. Comes from our leading stable so watch for any support.

SUPREME ONE – Three-Year-Old Filly by former Singapore winner Super One. Settled back in her trial and hit the line nicely poking up through the field. Looks to have some ability.

SKY EIGHT – Comes here after finishing second to Montana Flash in a trial a couple of weeks ago. That horse has since won and looked to hit the line in nice fashion. Watch for any market moves.

RACE 3

REVOLUTION – Boasts a great course and distance record (21: 5-4-0) over 1200m on the poly. Has been racing well enough of late to be winning this.

QUADCOPTER – Returns to the poly and comes out of a race where he ran a place on turf in good time, respect here.

ROYAL COMMANDER – Blinkers re-applied for this weekend. Best run in recent times was with the blinkers on so the gear change looks a positive sign.

FIREWORKS – Not too far away from class five but he is backing up this weekend in a winnable race and draws well also.

RACE 4

ROCKY – Gets the blinkers added this weekend after finishing a nice fourth last start. Bayliss should have him up there handy in the run and form is strong from his first few starts.

HOLY ELEANOR – Draws wide in this but one of our most consistent maidens in Singapore. Trainer has called on Blake Shinn to try and get that first win. She will look a danger for a long way.

PACIFIC STAR – Won his only trial clocking 1:01.37 with Wong in the saddle and he keeps the ride. Stable has a good record with horses in these grades and look for any support.

SHIHAB – Three-year-old son of Shalaa who has three trials under his belt coming into this. Has run in some trials that have produced some good race form and gets in on a lightweight.

RACE 5

GALAXY STAR – Racing consistently in this grade over his recent runs. Meets a competitive field but course statistics are strong and Shinn jumps in the saddle. Big show here.

AFTERMATH - Lines up for his class five debut after struggling to get a win in fourteen starts. Should appreciate the easier contest and has mixed it with class four company in the past being beaten short margins.

MASTER PLAYER – Gets back to class five where he was last successful winning back in September of last year. Can greet the judge first in this. Watch for any betting support.

TOM CAT – Has been well supported in recent runs and can go better in this. Duric gets the ride and stable going well at present.

RACE 6

GOLD KINGDOM – Relishes the mile on poly having won over it on four occasions. Gets a light weight here for this weekend, should go close.

SHANG CHI – Tackles the mile for the first time which is a slight question mark, but trackwork has been solid during the week. Top three hope.

LIM'S PUNCAK JAYA – Steps up from maiden to class 4 after a commanding last start win. Up against proven gallopers so this will be tougher.

ACE SOVEREIGN – Really caught the eye sticking on to run a drum his last couple. You know he will try and that is all you can ask, a must for the multiples.

RACE 7

ATLANTEAN – Racing in a rare patch of form at the moment. Stable seems to have him in a great spot with the form holding strong from his last few wins. Will get back but flying home late.

EASTIGER – Finds it hard to win recently but still manages to collect a cheque each start. Was involved in some interference last start and moved up on protest. Leading player.

BIG FORTUNE – Comes into this off a nice placing behind Cizen Lucky where he just went under by half a length. This race does not look any harder and a return performance sees him in the finish.

VOLUNTAD – Looking to bounce back to better form. Forget last run where he didn't have a lot go right and was taken wide in the closing stages. Top four claims.

RACE 8

LORD JUSTICE – Runs have been spaced in recent times but has still won his last two. Recent suggests he should be forward enough to run well here.

DREAM ALLIANCE – Trials have been solid ahead of debut here. One to watch for late market support.

ELLIOT NESS – First run back in class 4 was great and it proved another win at this class is very possible. Keep safe.

DR KARDO – Back to 1100m on the poly track for the first time since his win, top four player.

RACE 9

OLYMPIA – Claiming rider booked for this consistent gelding who always runs well despite winning. Should be handy in the run and with a comfortable run can score another win.

QAIDOOM – Has only missed the top four once in five appearances at this course and distance. Will be assisted by the four-kilogram claim for Mamat and gets his chance in a level field.

DAVID'S SLING – Yet to win at this distance but has placed once before over the journey. Came from well back and hit the line strongly. Wong in the saddle looks a smart booking.

BIZAR WINS – Most of his best career performances have come at this distance and has been running in some good form races leading into this. Watch for any support.

RACE 10

DARC BOUNTY – Four-time winner from 11 starts track and distance. Inside gate, Blake Shinn a key booking.

BIG TIGER – Never raced over this short in Singapore but get a lightweight here and a top three finish would not shock.

ROMANTIC – Has raced as high as class 2 in recent starts but returns to the 1000m on poly for the first time since his last win four starts ago. This was in the class below, but he looks well weighted here this weekend.

PALETAS – Recently changed stables and ownership and is now in the care of Jason Lim. Draws a nice gate for his second run back in class 3.

RACE 11

GOLD TEN SIXTY-ONE – Returns not only back from group company but back onto the poly track where he should be much better suited with his style of racing. Hard to beat.

RENZO – Racing in good order of late and should be aided by the four kilogram claim, looks the likely danger to the favorite.

WAR SNIPER – Two-time winner across UK and UAE but has not raced since January 2021. Recent trial win was okay, we'll learn a lot more about him this weekend.

HUGO – Trackwork has been solid ahead of his first start for over a month. Keep safe in the multiples.
