meeting preview for fri may 18, 2018

As the countdown continues to the re-introduction of international racing in Singapore on May 26, tonight's nine-race card looks a beauty for punters.

And while two very good Class 3 divisions over 1400m look the most competitive races on the night, the first leg of the Golden Horseshoe Series for two-year-olds is a highlight.

Only two horses in DRONE and GIANT KILLING have been seen at the races previously and both will obviously get most of the punters attention given they finished first and a close-up third respectively in 2YO maiden company.

DRONE has speed to burn - and by all accounts has trained on very well - so looks the one to beat although the connections of GIANT KILLING will be thinking a 2kg pull in the weights under the race conditions puts them right in contention.

No less than 10 newcomers in the race - most of whom have shown ability at the trials - will keep punters on their toes and the market will be a terrific guide to any stable confidence on the night.

As mentioned, the two Class 3 races look beauties with the Guineas bound MR CLINT a big show to win race 5 for top hoop Vlad Duric while the exciting SATELLITE WINNER can win race 8, although both races look wide open.

Best Bets: (NOVA LOCAL race 3, win), (ALAMOSA EXPRESS race 9, win) and (JACKS SECRET race 7, value).

Bankers for Jackpots: Race 6 (1, 3, 4, 6 and 10), race 7 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6), race 8 (1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 and 13), race 9 (1).
