meeting preview for fri jun 22, 2018

A solid eight-race card and while there look some interesting races early, the better races close the meeting and are well worth the wait.

In particular the Kranji Stakes B over 1000m on the Poly (race 7) looks a beauty and while last start winner ELITE POWER and the Poly specialist MOKASTAR win without surprising, it may be AUTUMN RUSH who is hardest to hold out.

The 5YO has enjoyed the company of WH Simon Kok almost exclusively in 2018 and even gave the 4kg claimer his first win in the saddle back in January.

Another win for the partnership in March has been backed up by some very good efforts in nice enough company to think he can win a race like this with best work expected late.

The lucky last is a Class 3 Poly sprint over 1200m that boasts no less than four last start winners in RIVER GOLDEN, ARC TRIUMPH, STAR EMPIRE and HYDE PARK.

Of those, only RIVER GOLDEN won at this level but there was enough to like about both ARC TRIUMPH and STAR EMPIRE's wins to think they will be more than competitive.

But it may be ANCIENT WARRIOR resuming after a poor run (with excuses) who is hardest to beat in what looks a very suitable affair with the booking of leading hoop, Vlad Duric, a pointer.

Best Bets: (OPTIMUM STAR race 4, win), (ANCIENT WARRIOR race 8, win) and (SAINT LINCOLN race 6, value).

Bankers for Jackpots: Race 5 (1, 2, 3 and 7), race 6 (2, 3, 5, 8, 9 and 10), race 7 (2, 5, 6, 8 and 9), race 8 (1, 3 and 7).
