prince of a punt

meeting preview for fri mar 15, 2019

While it is a debutante in IN THE BLACK that will keep us interested early, the big guns come out to play late with two excellent Kranji Stakes C turf sprints to finish the eight race card.

And it's the biggest - or at least heaviest - gun in Singapore in JOMO that will have punters on their toes in race 7.

The giant missed a place as the odds-on elect at his last start and while that will be some cause for concern for favourite backers, the jockey did report respiratory issues and he can show his best and win with a tongue-tie added for good measure.

He is up against some smart types though, with SACRED REBEL showing enough at his Singapore debut to think he is a horse to follow, while RICHEBOURG, SIAM VIPASIRI, ARARAT LADY and FAME STAR can also all win without surprising.

The lucky last doesn't have as much depth as the previous race and GINGERELLA will probably start favourite as the 4YO mare guns for three straight wins in Singapore, although SIAM BLUE VANDA resuming and MADE IN RUSSIA will keep things interesting.

As mentioned IN THE BLACK can win on debut in race 2 on the back of some impressive trial form, while the former Malaysian - PURPLE RAIN - looks well placed to open his Singapore account in race 4.

Best Bets: (IN THE BLACK race 2, win), (PURPLE RAIN race 4, win) and (RICHEBOURG race 7, value).

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

1 - JOMO - Heavily supported but disappointed last start with jockey reporting respiratory issues. Gets a tongue-tie and despite awkward gate can be in the finish.

3 - SACRED REBEL - Caught wide and fought on at Singapore debut. Was a smart horse in Australia and NZ. Should be improved and extra distance will suit. Hard to hold out.

10 - RICHEBOURG - Charged home from well back last start. Well drawn and with Vlad Duric to ride could be hard to hold out.
