meeting preview for fri nov 9, 2018

While there is a certain $1.35 million staying race that may garner some attention on Sunday, the Gold Cup weekend opens with a 'bottler' of a meeting on Friday with two Group races coupled with two cracking Kranji Stakes A Poly sprints.

The Saas Fee Stakes is the first feature on the card and while the $200,000 Group 3 only attracted seven 3YO's, the much anticipated clash between LIM'S LIGHTNING and BOLD THRUSTER makes it a must watch.

LIM'S LIGHTNING probably starts favourite given he is gunning for five straights wins - one at 2YO Group level - but you could argue BOLD THRUSTER has the better form given he did it tough in good company last start when being beaten for the first time at his fourth career start.

The Group 2 EW Barker is just an exciting with MISTER YEOH, BE BEE and ZAC KASA all serious 4YO's with big futures ahead of them.

Any of the three can win with MISTER YEOH and BE BEE already with Group wins on their resume while last start winner ZAC KASA has placed in Group 1 open company when almost pinching the Lion City Cup.

Two very good features in what looks a very entertaining nights racing.

Best Bets: (BOLD THRUSTER race 4, win), (MISTER YEOH race 6, win) and (COUNTRY QUACK race 1, value).

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

4 - MISTER YEOH - Run down in Garden City Trophy last start but lost no friends. Awkwardly drawn but with no weight should be hard to run down.

7 - BE BEE - Racing well since resuming and ran on from well back in Garden City trophy. Extra distance may suit and drops 5.5kg. Should be hard to hold out.

6 - ZAC KASA - Beat Bold Thurster in Class 2 last start and rarely runs poorly. Will find this harder and yet to win beyond 1200m but pay to follow.

2 - SKYWALK - Ran out of condition late in Garden City Trophy. Much better suited on poly and improves second up. Hard to hold off with Michael Rodd to ride.

1 - MAXIMUS - Resuming after abortive Seoul trip. Trialled well and has won three times at this trip and has first up form. With upgrade to blinkers can show up.

6 - AUTUMN RUSH - Rarely far away but finding it hard to win. Up in class from narrow miss in KSB last start but drops 8.5kg for Simon Kok and should be handy throughout.

3 - MAGIC WAND - Just missed when resuming. Step up in trip should suit and will be handy throughout with Olivier Placais retaining the ride.

6 - SUPER POWER - In solid form and has won two of three starts at the trip. Poorly drawn but has the speed to be prominent.
