meeting preview for sat apr 24, 2021

It might sound odd given its Group 1 status, but only good horses win the Lion City Cup.

Obviously ROCKET MAN - who won four Lion City Cups in his undefeated domestic career - dominates the honour board but with the likes of FISCHER, SUPERB EFFECT, ZAC SPIRIT and LIM'S CRUISER all with two wins apiece in the Group 1 sprint, it holds its own as one of the best races on the calendar.

But 2021 may throw up an anomaly with some relatively lowly rated horses in with a winning shot.

ZAC KASA - who placed in this race as a 3YO in 2018 - hasn't won since February 2019 but will have admirers in this field on the back of a very nice trial, while the likes of KHARISMA, LIM'S LIGHTNING and ROCKET STAR are all progressive enough to win off a low rating.

But at the Weight-For-Age conditions, the higher rated horses are hard to beat and given only GRAND KOONTA and TOP KNIGHT are rated over 100, class may prevail.

And narrowing it down even further, given TOP KNIGHT has yet to win at 1200m, GRAND KOONTA may be a good thing over his best trip with the booking of Vlad Duric a huge factor.

Sure, TOP KNIGHT will be strongest late, but the best sprinter in GRAND KOONTA should win and might be one of the better bets on the day.

Elsewhere on the card, ELLIOT NESS might be a maiden but he was narrowly beaten by LIM'S KOSCIUSZKO last start and given that race form has been franked, he should win race 2 with Duric up on the back of a very slick trial.

Best Bets: (ELLIOT NESS race 2, win), (GRAND KOONTA race 10, win), and (IMPLEMENT race 11, value).

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