collector v cruiser

meeting preview for sun may 28, 2017

There is a lot to like about horse racing in Singapore, especially when the big guns come out to play.

And in Singapore the biggest guns are two 4YO's in the reigning horse-of-the-year in DEBT COLLECTOR and his heir apparent, LIM'S CRUISER.

The pair clash for the first time in the Group 2 Stewards' Cup over 1400m (race 8) and given the distance and the weight-for-age conditions, a fairer fight punters could not wish for.

Given DEBT COLLECTOR has a couple of recent blemishes to his record, LIM'S CRUISER probably starts favourite which is remarkable when you consider the latter was winning in Class 3 Company back in October.

That same month DEBT COLLECTOR was winning back-to-back Group 1 races and the NZ-bred gelding looked to have the world at his feet before a shock loss to Jupiter Gold and an underwhelming run at the top level in Dubai having punters second-guessing his "top dog" status.

Conversely, LIM'S CRUISER has gone from strength to strength by winning the EW Barker and Rocket Man Sprint at Group handicap conditions before stamping his authority at WFA level in the Group 1 Lion City Cup.

And while it is by no means a two-horse race (INFANTRY would take umbrage to that comment), most pundits and punters will have to choose one or the other and lets hope the best horse wins.

Best Bets: (TANNHAUSER race 6, win), (LUCKY STRIDE race 10, each-way) and (ARIF race 4, value).

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

Good luck and see you in the forum!
