towering inferno

meeting preview for sun nov 10, 2019

The best days racing on the Singapore calendar with the running of the Singapore Gold Cup the obvious highlight on the bumper 10-race card.

And the 2019 edition looks a beauty on paper with a very even spread of weights at the handicap conditions with COUNTOFMONTECRISTO with 57kg only giving the maximum 7kg advantage to two horses in SUPER DYNASTY and YABADABADOO.

Historically, top-weights do struggle to win the Gold Cup but COUNTOFMONTECRISTO comes off an eye-catching run in the Queen Elizabeth II Cup and he would have a big say in this finish if he can replicate that effort under Daniel Moor.

But I'M INCREDIBLE, KING LOUIS and SUN MARSHAL ran first, second and third respectively in the QEII Cup and given they all carry less weight and should eat up the extra 200m of the Cup, they all figure in what should be a very busy finish.

Two horses that didn't fire a shot in the QEII Cup but have a say on best form are MR CLINT and STAR EMPEROR.

MR CLINT started favourite on that particular occasion and did have excuses (lame), while STAR EMPEROR wasn't suited by the slow tempo of the race so is worth thought in this at value on his Raffles Cup form.

There is one other Group race on the day - The Saas Fee Stakes for 3YO's - and INFERNO looks to have one hand on that particular trophy and is the only horse to be on.

Best Bets: (INFERNO race 7, win), (BLITZ POWER race 6, value), and (SUPER POWER race 8, value).

Bankers for Jackpots: Race 7 (1), race 8 (1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 10 and 12), race 9 (1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 11), race 10 (1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 11).

12 - SUPER POWER - Another who did it tough from a wide gate last start so can forgive and take on best form.

10 - UNCONQUERED - Disappointing last start when first beaten but appreciates gate 3, gets blinkers and may give a sight at odds. Keep safe.

5 - BEAU GESTE - Form better than it reads and looked to have some in hand last start. Some how with blinkers added and a handy 3kg Eaton claim.

8 - MR CLINT - Barrier 4. Never fired a shot in the QEII Cup as favourite but was lame. Wins on Raffles Cup run with Melbourne Cup winning hoop a bonus.

5 - KING LOUIS - Barrier 3. Just missed when driving late in the QEII and can makes quick amends from gate 3 over his best trip.

4 - I'M INCREDIBLE - Barrier 13. Hard to fault winning streak since March (in KSD Company) this year. Held on to win the QEII and will look the winner late again.

3 - LIM'S PASSION - Progressive type who won a similar affair to this last start and will be running on strongly in this.

2 - HARDCORE - Resuming after back in Guineas failure with nice win over 1800m. Looks suited here and will be hard to hold out.

1 - MADE IN RUSSIA - Excuses when dropping to Class 4 last start and work late suggests he is up to winning a race like this.
