elite for a reason

meeting preview for fri oct 12, 2018

A very tricky Friday night for punters but you would imagine with some very competitive fields, there should be plenty of value to be found and a Kranji Stakes A 1400m event to keep things interesting late.

True the headline race lacks the depth of normal Kranji Stakes A fields but, after missing the Raffles Cup with an elevated temperature, the connections of ELITE INVINCIBLE will be hoping for a big run going forward to a Gold Cup tilt.

The 4YO won at this level back in February but it was his subsequent Group 1 winning form heading into the Derby that had him stamped as top class.

He did find one better in the Emirates Singapore Derby - Jupiter Gold - but he lost no friends there or when running on well late behind the same horse over 1200m on the Poly in preparation for this campaign.

He does look the best horse over 1400m in this field and with Vlad Duric up from gate 7, he will race in a forward position and be very hard to beat.

If he is tested it will be by the progressive TESORO PRIVADO, who was also a late scratching at his most recent non-outing, as he does look a horse that will play a big part in feature races in the future.

Best Bets: (ELITE INVINCIBLE race 6, win), (O'WHAT A FEELING race 5, value) and (OUR SHOWCASE race 8, value).

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

1 - OL MATE BUZZER - Frustrating speedster who is worth one more look as Class 5 should suit over 1000m sans blinkers.

3 - THOTH WARRIOR - Just battled last start over 1200m but worth thought on previous two efforts this trip.

8 - CASSIS OOLONG - Wide draw always some concern but in form and should go forward and play a role in this finish.

5 - HUGO - Debuted very well when keeping favourite honest to the wire with gap to third. Hard to beat.

12 - SIAM VIPASIRI - Resuming after not being disgraced in the Golden Horseshoe on the back of very good debut. Recent trials suggest she can win this.

8 - ON THE RAZZ - Had a few trials and the most recent solid enough to have some say in this field with Rodd a factor.

10 - SUPER DENMAN - Did it tough from wide gate last start and that effort good enough to win this from kinder alley.

4 - DAVID'S STAR - Freshened after poor run but just missed in Class 4 two starts back and would win if on best behaviour.

1 - O'WHAT A FEELING - Ignore recent poor form as steps up to right trip dropping to Class 4 with gate 2 a bonus.

2 - SUN PITTSBURGH - Form better than it reads and 2000m look ideal so pay to keep safe.

6 - RICH BEAUTY - Looked the winner late in similar affair last start and yet another who wins without surprising.

@markavison @KranjiBroadcast @SGTurfClub to be fair Mark I was heading to level one but thought better of it after I got the shoes polished.
