Race 1

Larry says, "A public holiday in Singapore and no need to rush to the track as the opener is just fair at best. But as they say in the game, 'every race has a winner' and that could be a good enough mantra for KUBERA'S CHIEF to take home the chocolates. Class 5 does look his caper and although drawn wide, he has the pace to go forward and he will look the winner at some stage late. DOMINY is yet to win a race (and as a 7YO that is a concern) but he is due and while also drawn wide, Boss will have options with speed drawn just inside him and he can break his maiden status today. Of the Class droppers, PARKER and DAYUAN both improve in this company while SECONDWAVE is in solid form and should figure somewhere in the mix. Betting Strategy - PARKER each-way."

Race 2

Larry says, "Nothing jumps off the page in this Class 4 (non-premier) Poly sprint and while the likes of BOARD WALK and RUM N RAISINS are honest and look due, it may be KEY SUCCESS resuming who is hardest to hold out. The lightly raced 4YO showed enough at his maiden campaign to think he wins races like this and a recent trial good enough to think he can win first up after a change of stables. As mentioned, BOARD WALK and RUM N RAISINS are both in solid form and look due, although barriers will play a part with BOARD WALK needing luck from the widest gate while RUM N RAISINS should get the favours from gate 2 with support likely. LUCKY SIX - although disappointing last start - also looks well placed to knock in a win and keep SUPER DAN safe as he has certainly found form after blinkers went on two starts back. Betting Strategy - KEY SUCCESS win."

Race 3

Larry says, "Although there are three last start winners in this field, it is the horses that come off eye-catching runs in this company that appeal. JUSTICE LASS certainly fits that category after running on strongly over 1200m on the Polytrack and while drawn wide for this, he will make his presence felt under C Grylls at the business end. Likewise, MOMENT OF JUSTICE ran on well last start and given that effort was against the bias and he gets the benefit of a 3kg claim, he will play a part in the finish. Add DUSSELDORF to the list of horses that will be working home late and it should be a busy finish. However, the horse they all have to beat is LITTLE MASTER who looks due, comes off a nice trial and retains the services of V Duric which counts for plenty. NEW SENSATION, MURDOCH and RACING TALENT are the three last start winners but all would need to improve again in this field. Betting Strategy - LITTLE MASTER win."

Race 4

Larry says, "Not only is there a capacity field for this Juvenile Stakes, but most look some hope on the back of either good debuts or exposed trial form, so finding the winner will be extremely tough. The market will obviously be a very good guide on the day (and there will be value about) but of the raced brigade not much separates the likes of LIM'S LIGHTNING, MAKKEM LAD, MY BIG BOSS and JUPITER DRAGON. All can win although LIM'S LIGHTNING might be the outlier given he debuted in Novice Company and will appreciate being back in his own age-group. Of the un-raced brigade, STREETWISE and TIGER BOSS both appeal but have wide gates to overcome while QIJI COMMANDER, AXEL and CRAZY WINS (to name just a few) all go close on trial form. Betting Strategy - LIM'S LIGHTNING each-way."

Race 5

Larry says, "Plenty of winning hopes in this Class 4 (premier) sprint and while not one to win out of turn, ARR FLAIR will be in the mix. The 5YO is versatile but his form of late over 1200m in this Company has been very good and from gate 4 with R Curatolo to ride, he gets his chance. One that may be value is MASTER OF MALIBU. The 3YO can disappoint but will appreciate being back on the Poly and, given he has form around some nice types on the all-weather, he could win this. Of the rest, COUNTRY BOSS, DESTROYER ECLIPSE and SPECIAL RAIN all look due and can win without surprising while LIFE IS GAMBLE looks the big improver dropping to Class 4 with a tongue-tie added. Betting Strategy - MASTER OF MALIBU each-way."

Race 6

Larry says, "It always pays to keep an eye on Class droppers and CHAIRMAN WIND and MILLION ROUND are the two to watch in this Class 5 mile. CHAIRMAN WIND in particular drops to what is a very suitable affair and given the last time he dropped to Class 5 he went round as the even money fave, expect support and a big run. MILLION ROUND perhaps comes into this race with the more eye-catching run under his belt but he is a slight query the trip so play with care with a 3kg claimer on-board. Of the rest, NEO'S CLASSIC had excuses when dropping to this Class last start and he wins without surprising, while on recent good form in this Company, POWERFUL OF WIND will probably lead and give a sight with G Boss a factor. Betting Strategy - MILLION ROUND each-way."

Race 7

Larry says, "While you can make a strong case for up to seven of the nine-horse field, the top-rated horse in KINGSMAN looks hardest to beat. The 4YO ran on very well against the bias to just miss last start over 1400m and from gate 1 you would think he has every chance to make quick amends stepping up to the mile with V Duric a factor. Oddly, it may be the lowest rated horse in the field - YULONG XIONG HU - who is his biggest danger. The former Australian looks a very progressive type and with no weight in what looks a suitable affair, he goes very close. It's definitely not a two horse affair with the proverbial blanket going over the likes of last start winner GOLAZO, the two Lim's horse's in LIM'S REGARDS and LIM'S KNIGHT, while WINNING CAUSE also gets his chance. Keep SONG TO THE MOON safe, as this race should suit back-markers. Betting Strategy - KINGSMAN win."

Race 8

Larry says, "While DUTROW gets the favours from gate 1 and looks the obvious choice on the back on a good last start win, this race has much more to offer and HIMALAYA DRAGON could be a terrific value option. The 7YO has drawn wide in gate 9 but given a speedster in FILIBUSTER has drawn just inside her in 8, a handy enough position with cover could see a result on the back of some very solid recent form. FILIBUSTER too can be considered with winkers added but she would need the favours out front with C Grylls to take the ride. But DUTROW is the one to beat on form and while he won in the protest room last start, there was a gap to third and he can go on with the job. Of the others, BOY WONDER can disappoint but goes well for V Duric while SILKINO and UNCONQUERED are always an each-way show in races like this. Betting Strategy - HIMALAYA DRAGON each-way."

Race 9

Larry says, "This race looks better than a Kranji Stakes C on paper given two of the fancies - LIM'S ARCHER and McGREGOR - have placed in much better Company of late and no less than three last start winners are also in the field. LIM'S ARCHER placed in Group Company back in December and given he looked solid when resuming and the step up to this trip suits, he could be the testing material. McGREGOR wasn't far away from the good winner in AOTEAROA in KSA Company last start when placing over this trip on the turf and he also goes mighty close. ROBIN HOOD, TARGET and BLUE DANUBE are the three last start winners in the field and of those, TARGET probably looks the pick given his win completed a hat trick and he can go on with the job. MR SCORSESE and MAGIC WAND just two more to consider. Betting Strategy - LIM'S ARCHER win."

Race 10

Larry says, "A solid Class 3 turf event over 1400m to finish what was hopefully a profitable day at the track and while there could be some improvers at odds, SKY ROCKET could be the safest way home. The lightly-raced 4YO has had excuses for his only two unplaced runs and his progression through the grades at his last three starts suggests he wins this without surprising and can go on to better races. DARCI CHARMER looks the danger. The 7YO led them up in KSA Company two back and wasn't a mile away at the finish before running on very strongly last start suggesting he wins again soon. The in-form LUCKY STRIDE and LIM'S REFORM two others that can win without surprising while BATTLE OF TROY and MAJOR TOM just two others that could provide value to exotics. Betting Strategy - SKY ROCKET win."
