better than class 3

meeting preview for sat oct 31, 2020

It's been a big month for Group racing at Kranji and it hasn't finished just yet with the running of the Queen Elizabeth Cup on Saturday.

The Group 1 weight-for-age feature over 1800m will see the usual suspects take center stage and while many will be hoping COUNTOFMONTECRISTO has his day in the sun, it may ARAMAAYO and TOP KNIGHT who fight out this finish.

The pair have been dueling at the elite level at their last three runs with ARAMAAYO winning both the Kranji Mile and Raffles Cup (also 1600m), while TOP KNIGHT won the Derby.

That somewhat overdue Group 1 win by TOP KNIGHT was over 1800m, which will hold him in good stead over the same trip and track in the QEII, but there will be question marks over his last start failure in the Raffles Cup.

The chances don't stop there with the Lee Freedman pair of SUN MARSHAL and MINISTER both in form and both likely to be prominent throughout, while another Freedman runner in LOYALTY MAN could run into the money at odds.

Elsewhere on the card, the Guineas form more than held up in the Lion City Cup last Sunday when INFERNO won with a leg in the air and it's safe to say STRONG N POWERFUL and BIG HEARTED will come in for plenty of support in Class 3 over 1800m (race 7).

Of the two, BIG HEARTED looks better suited over the trip and will be extremely strong late if given a quieter ride from gate 11.

Best Bets: (BIG HEARTED race 7, win), (UNSTOPPABLE GIANT race 4, value), and (YULONG EDITION race 9, value).

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