Larry says, "The race that stops the republic - the Group 1 Singapore Gold Cup - is upon us and this more than any other year, there looks a very even spread of weights and many winning chances. Usually the top-weight is facing an uphill task but COUNTOFMONTECRISTO is the most consistent WFA performer in the field and while he is a query at the trip, his effort in the Queen Elizabeth II Cup over 1800m was very good given he was the only horse to make up ground in a race that suited the on-pace runners and 57kg looks a fair weight. But he was still some two-lengths off the first two over the line in the QEII Cup and IíM INCREDIBLE and KING LOUIS - who carry 54.5kg and 54kg respectively at the handicap conditions - are the two horses that pick themselves on form and it wonít surprise anyone if they fight out this finish as well. Obviously nothing separates the two on recent form, but KING LOUIS gets his chance to knock in a well-deserved win with the 0.5kg pull in the weights and the step up to 2000m in his favour. MR CLINT is the danger. The 5YO New Zealand-bred gelding - who placed in this race last year - pulled up lame when finishing down the track as favourite in the QEII Cup and if you are happy to forgive that run, he will be strong late in this with just 53kg and recent Melbourne Cup winning jockey, Craig Williams, to ride. Of the others that could win with any luck in running, MAKANANI won the Raffles Cup two starts back at WFA conditions, wasnít a mile away in the QEII Cup and is trained by the Gold Cup King in Hideyuki Takaoka, while SUN MARSHAL will go forward and the 2019 Derby winner will see out the trip. STAR EMPEROR one more to keep safe as he never had a fair crack given the tempo in the QEII Cup and will be running on strongly on best form. Betting Strategy - MR CLINT each-way. "

JP VAN DER MERWE (N/A) M WALKER (11.4) 0 100 54.5 ** Barrier 19. Won this race last year with 53kg but form patchy since. Gets blinkers but gate will test.
4 11111 I'M INCREDIBLE V DURIC (17.6) S BAERTSCHIGER (11.6) 0 100 54.5 *** Barrier 13. Hard to fault winning streak since March (in KSD Company) this year. Held on to win the QEII and will look the winner late again.
5 83432 KING LOUIS B W PIKE (10.5) R LE GRANGE (12.7) 0 97 54.0 *** Barrier 3. Just missed when driving late in the QEII and can makes quick amends from gate 3 over his best trip.
6 41215 MAKANANI B, EM M LERNER (N/A) H TAKAOKA (7.5) 0 97 54.0 *** Barrier 8. Won the Raffles Cup and not a mile away in the QEII. Trainer knows how to win this race and will figure.
7 61103 SUN MARSHAL B J AZZOPARDI (N/A) DL FREEDMAN (9.7) 0 95 53.5 *** Barrier 12. Derby winner who bounced back in the QEII Cup after disappointing in the Raffles. very forward run expected at each-way value.
8 00220 MR CLINT B, TT C WILLIAMS (16.7) DL FREEDMAN (9.7) 0 94 53.0 *** Barrier 4. Never fired a shot in the QEII Cup as favourite but was lame. Wins on Raffles Cup run with Melbourne Cup winning hoop a bonus.

P MOLONEY (N/A) S GRAY (9.8) 0 89 52.0 * Barrier 17. Won this race in 2016 and just missed in 2017. Nothing since though and not even blinkers will help.
10 35569 BLUE SWEDE B, TT K A'ISISUHAIRI (8.7) S BAERTSCHIGER (11.6) 0 86 51.0 * Barrier 5. Veteran who runs on when in the mood - and did place in this race in 2017 - but could be tested on recent form.
11 31370 STAR EMPEROR B I SAIFUDIN (2) L DRAGON (8.1) 0 86 51.0 *** Barrier 20. Never fired a shot in the QEII Cup but that was an anomaly given the slow tempo. Happy to follow on Raffles Cup run.

R WOODWORTH (8.8) M WALKER (11.4) 0 84 50.5 ** Barrier 7. Hard to have on what he showed as the odds on-pop over the mile in Class 2 last start but some hope on best form this trip with visor off and tongue-tie on.
13 01*29 GOLD STRIKE B B VORSTER (12.3) C BROWN (13.6) 0 83 50.5 ** Barrier 16. Another that didn't fire in the QEII but will be running on late and can include exotics at odds.

B THOMPSON (N/A) M CLEMENTS (13.6) 0 83 50.5 ** Barrier 6. Progressive stayer who is tested at this level but knows how to win and could run a cheeky race at value.
15 06551 SUPER DYNASTY VIS, EM A COLLETT (N/A) DL FREEDMAN (9.7) 0 82 50.0 * Barrier 1. Won well over the mile last start and inside gate helps but tested at the trip at this level.
16 22731 YABADABADOO B CC WONG (N/A) M CLEMENTS (13.6) 0 81 50.0 * Barrier 18. Drawn badly and huge query the trip but did run on well to win last start over 1400m.
17 97398 CLAUDIA'S BEAUTY E1 P UNFIXED (N/A) L KHOO (5.6) 0 81 50.0 ** Barrier 15. Showing glimpses of late and always looked like this trip is her caper. Could surprise in exotics at very long odds.

UNFIXED (N/A) J PETERS (10.1) 0 79 50.0 ** Barrier 2. Outclassed in the QEII at WFA conditions but has placed this trip, gets blinkers added and not the worst.
