trials and tribulations

meeting preview for fri feb 14, 2020

A little something for everyone on a nine-race card from Singapore on Friday and while exposed race form is usually the best form, it always pays to keep an eye on the trials for some horses ready to improve.

And while WONDERFUL KNIGHT doesn't have to improve much on his last run to win in Class 4 over 1200m on the Poly (race 3), he is first up after a spell so his smart recent trial is a good pointer to his chances.

It's also worth noting his last win - back in April last year - was also first-up in a similar affair to this and he may run this lot off their feet with perhaps the Class dropper in CALCULATION his biggest danger.

In a very weak Class 5 over 1200m on the Poly (race 5), DARK KNIGHT looks to be hopelessly out of form - and truth be told he may just be no good - but his recent trials with blinkers added suggests he may improve lengths and the race is weak enough to think any improvement could see a result at odds.

In race 7, VESONTIO should improve on some poor recent form over unsuitable trips as he steps up to the mile and his good recent trial is also a pointer that he is ready to show his best with gate 2 a bonus.

LIZAZ in the lucky last also comes off a nice trial and while he is resuming against some handy types that include MIG PIERRO and LIMITED EDITION, he has no weight and hopefully the trial form holds up.

Best Bets: (WONDERFUL KNIGHT race 3, win), (DARK KNIGHT race 5, value), and (VESONTIO race 7, value).

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