meeting preview for sat feb 29, 2020

Racing doesn't get much better than what is on offer from Singapore on Saturday and the first leg of the Four-year-Old Challenge, the Group 3 Silver Bowl, highlights the excellent 10-race card.

At set-weights it will favour the higher rated horses and BOLD THRUSTER looks a 'monty' on paper given he is some 8.5kg better off than his nearest rated rival.

His last start win was over this trip when giving weight to most others at the race conditions of the Fortune Bowl and if he can cross (again) from the wide gate and race handy, he will be hard to pass late.

The stable mate - and recently crowned Champion 3YO for 2019 - TOP KNIGHT is the obvious danger with the Vlad Duric a definite factor given he rode BOLD THRUSTER to win at his last start.

But Duric and connections would be thinking ahead and TOP KNIGHT - while he can win this with best work expected late - will be better suited over the second-leg mile and no doubt his trainer Mike Clements has one eye on the Derby in July.

The race is wide open after these two, although Clements also saddles SIAM BLUE VANDA and REAL SUCCESS who have some claims and it will pay to go as wide as possible in exotics given the depth of the Group field.

Best Bets: (INFERNO race 7, win), (BUURAQ race 10, win), and (ZAC KASA race 5, value).

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