meeting preview for fri jan 17, 2020

While there are some decent races and progressive horses late in the card, it looks a tricky Friday for punters and some of the Maidens and Class 5 affairs may offer some of the better bets on the night.

That can be a risky strategy but in fields that lack depth early in the meeting, we can narrow down the winning chances and hopefully pull the right rein with selections.

BEAT THE LIGHT was formerly known as Lucky Trio and the he certainly showed enough in Maiden Company to win first-up in Class 5.

The 4YO gets a handy 2kg claim for the in-form Simon Kok and with only two or three others with winning hopes, he can win on the back of a solid trial.

KING'S LANDING (race 6) is another maiden who looks well-placed to win in Class 5 Company and with a 4k ZX Tan claim, he may just try to run them off their feet with support likely.

There is one Maiden race on the card - race 2 - and IRONCLAD easily showed enough at his Singapore race debut to think he is hard to hold out over 1200m and again, Simon Kok and his 2kg claim is a factor.

If you want to ignore the low-quality races, there are some very progressive types in NO FUN NO GAIN and PAX ANIMI going round in Class 3 Company (race 6) and both will have support to continue their winning run, albeit up in grade.

Best Bets: (IRONCLAD race 2, win), (NO FUN NO GAIN race 6, win), and (BEAT THE LIGHT race 1, value).

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

4 - PRINCE PEGASUS - Only win in Singapore was over the mile but excuses last start over this trip when resuming and should figure.

2 - ELITE BEAST - No luck at the barriers (again) but just missed last start and wins with any luck in running.
