meeting preview for sun feb 18, 2018

There looks something for everyone on the second day of the Chinese New Year racing weekend with some very exciting prospects going round in sprint events on the Turf and Poly tracks and some of Singapore's more dour types trying their luck over 2000m.

But there is plenty of winning form in the staying race with three of the eight-horse field (race 8) coming off last start wins.

DALGETY, KINGS RYKER and TURF CHAMPION all look suited to win again suggesting it will be a tough race for punters and even more so given CHOCOLATS is due and could trump them all stepping up in trip.

But the real action is in the race prior (race 7) with no less than six last start winners doing battle at Novice conditions over 1200m on the turf.

And while the best of those winners may be MR COLIN, at the weight v ratings ratio it may pay to look at the 3YO's in WHAT'S NEW with just 51.5kg courtesy of a 2kg claim and MOST FAVOURITE at value with just 55kg.

Get there early as an exciting 3YO in LOVING YOU makes her debut in race 2 and given she won her Official Trial by some 13 lengths, she could be worth the admission price.

Best Bets: (SWIFT EMBRACE race 3, win), (WHAT'S NEW race 7, win) and (REINE DASHER race 6, value).

Bankers for Jackpots: Race 7 (1 and 9), race 8 (1, 2, 5, 6 and 7), race 9 (1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 10 and 11) and race 10 (1, 6, 7, 8 and 11).
