meeting preview for sun jul 22, 2018

A Korean flavor to today's meeting from Singapore with the annual running of the Korea Racing Authority Trophy over 1200m.

A Poly event at set-weights, the race usually favours the Singaporean-based horses and as such the winning chances can be narrowed down to the better-rated all-weather track specialists.

SKYWALK certainly ticks those boxes being both the highest rated horse (95) in the capacity field with three recent wins on the Poly to his name.

The 4YO has drawn wide in gate 11 but with the reigning Champion jockey, Vlad Duric onboard, he will be extremely hard to hold out.

Ricky Le grange has two live chances in RAFAELLO and ROYAL RULER.

Both are rated to win and while ROYAL RULER has the more impressive Poly record, he has drawn wide with RAFAELLO - off the back of a good last start Poly placing - gets the favours from gate 3.

Of the visitors, TODAY certainly has the best recent form over this trip and while the Korean-bred 4YO will find the local opposition tough to beat, four Busan wins and a Seoul placing from his last five starts may just hold up.

Best Bets: (SKYWALK race 8, win), (OCULIST race 3, each-way) and (BEST WISHES race 9, value).

Bankers for Jackpots: Race 6 (1, 2, 3, 4 and 5), race 7 (1, 2, 3, 6 and 10), race 8 (1, 2 and 3) and race 9 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8).

6 - LORD OF LIGHT - Showed speed and despite greenness fought on well at debut. Poorly drawn but should be prominent with Vlad Duric to ride.

5 - LORD JUSTICE - By Showcasing. Brother to good horse Deimos and half-brother to stayer El Don. Trials have been good enough to win on debut in this field.

11 - MO ALMIGHTY - Did it tough on debut and showed enough to think he improves and can play a part in this finish with no weight.

1 - THEAGENESOFTHASOS - Improved last start in Novice company. Bred for this trip and with Vlad Duric to ride from a good gate should be hard to hold out.
