meeting preview for fri jul 13, 2018

It's Derby weekend in Singapore and the Group racing starts on Friday with the eighth running of the Group 2 Aushorse Golden Horseshoe.

The $325,000 feature is now the standalone Group event for Juveniles in Singapore and with an honour board that includes the likes of WAR AFFAIR and SUPER ONE (to name just two), the race is a breeding ground of future Singapore champions.

Who wins in 2018?

The Lim's stable won the race in 2016 with LIM'S RACER and have two contenders in 2018 with LIM'S LIGHTNING and LIM'S DREAM.

Both will have a say and while LIM'S DREAM probably leads and may look the winner at some stage in the straight, it is the impressive last start winner in LIM'S LIGHTNING who will be hardest to beat.

The Australian-bred gelding still has a bit to learn - which is an ominous sign for his competitors - but he certainly got his act together in the third leg of the series when winning going away by four lengths.

From that same race, MY BIG BOSS and GALVARINO both look to have some upside and keep things interesting while the undefeated PENNYWISE looks an obvious choice and will have plenty of admirers on the day.

Best Bets: (LIM'S LIGHTNING race 6, win), (SMOOTH OPERATOR race 2, each-way) and (FUSION POWER race 3, value).

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

1 - GOLD FAITH - Disappointing with support last start but last win was with this hoop and can make amends.

5 - BILLY BRITAIN - Form starting to read badly but this race suits and goes well for Munro. Value.

8 - ACE HARBOUR - Seventeen start Maiden who just missed over 2000m last outing in this grade. Handles the Poly and in the mix.

2 - LIM'S LIGHTNING - Placed in Novice company before commanding win against his own age. Hard to beat as can improve again.

8 - GALVARINO - Late Crazy Wins. Showed enough on debut behind Lim's Lightning to think he can be followed with subsequent nice trials a factor.

13 - MY BIG BOSS - Has run on very well at both starts and would have a say if handier in running with winkers added a factor.
