Race 1

Larry says, "Some dead-set battlers head to the start of this Class 5 Poly mile and with one eye on the jockeys championship, it is Michael Rodd and Vlad Duric who get the attention. Rodd stays on SONORAN who had no luck last start when held up for the entire straight. The maiden did place at his previous start (with Rodd) and this race looks suitable to knock in a win. But while Rodd retains his ride, Duric replacing an apprentice in Amirul on YULONG HOLY FLYING is a significant jockey change. True, Amirul is no slouch and is in HK with Lim's Cruiser, but Duric can lift these battling horses and given what YULONG HOLY FLYING showed late last start, he will be given every chance to win this. Of the rest, AVENGERS HERO also ran on super late to place at his last start and we can expect much the same while most others have a say in exotics on best form. Betting Strategy - YULONG HOLY FLYING and SONORAN forecast."

Race 2

Larry says, "While we may have a longer look at a couple of improvers at value on the day, as it stands GRATUS looks ready to win and gets his chance after drawing the ace. The 4YO ran into a smart one in JOMO on debut and while well beaten again when placing at his next start, he looks better than most of these and should figure prominently throughout. STARDICE with Vlad Duric up should also get plenty of attention. The O'Reilly 4YO had excuses (roarer) when supported in Kranji Stakes D Company last start and is certainly worth thought with blinkers removed against other maidens. The couple that could be worth a look at value are WHAKAARIA MAI who resumes after a bad run of form but has trialled well recently (and the stable is flying), while GALWAY GIRL showed more than enough late last start to follow with gate 3 a factor. Include 3, 7, 9, 13 and 14 in exotics. Betting Strategy - WHAKAARIA MAI each-way."

Race 3

Larry says, "An odd Novice where nothing jumps off the page at the race conditions and a couple of improvers could make things interesting. The two improvers are ICHIGOICHIE and GENTLEMEN AGREEMENT - both with gear changes. ICHIGOICHIE gets blinkers/pacifiers added to his gear and while his debut was solid at best, his trials with headgear were impressive and he could win this. GENTLEMEN AGREEMENT loses winkers but more importantly his debut run was very good considering the traffic he ran into late and he wins races sooner than later and may be value. There are three last start winners in the field and of those, FAME STAR looks a handy type and he can go on with the job while SUPER POSH won at his debut and is in very well at the race conditions so can win. The other last start winner is THE BIG EASY who gets Duric and market best guide on the others. Betting Strategy - ICHIGOICHIE win, saver on GENTLEMEN AGREEMENT."

Race 4

Larry says, "The obvious pick on form in this maiden in GEB WARRIOR and while drawn wide, he looks the horse to beat. Vlad Duric rode him last start when just missing over 1100m and the champion hoop will ride him positively from the outside alley and it may be a case of whoever beats him wins. DRAGON HIGH has changed stables and given he usually shows his best work late, he will have last crack at them and could easily win back on the Poly with a tongue-tie added. Of the rest, HERO KING showed last start he has plenty to offer and will improve with racing sans blinkers for this while ASTRA could be the big improver at odds given he will find maiden company a lot easier than the Novice fields he has met. Keep the debutante from Australia - CORSA D'ORA - safe on trial form with the market best guide. Betting Strategy - ASTRA value."

Race 5

Larry says, "A tricky Class 4 Poly mile with a few unknowns including ENDOWMENT who is having his second start in Singapore. The former Kiwi, who arrived via Australia, was supported at his Kranji debut and given he had excuses and that race looked too short, he improves over the mile with Rodd on-board. Another 'unknown' is the form of ONE FORCE on the Poly first up over the mile. But the 4YO is trialling well and could run a very forward race after a bleeding attack at his last start. Of the 'knowns', OLIVER had support when bolting in last start in a similar affair to this and he can be followed with an extra 3kg to carry while BILLY BRITAIN is always a show in races like this and is often each-way value. O'WHAT A FEELING and DON DE LA VEGA two more that win without surprising in what could be a busy finish. Betting Strategy - ENDOWMENT win."

Race 6

Larry says, "Not an overly strong Class 3 (division 2) field, which should give a few of the horses that have struggled in this company previously to knock in a win. The likes of SNIP, KING OF WAR, BRINGER OF WAR and PRINCE ALEXANDER all could win a race like this on best Poly form but usually need a tad easier. Which gives LIM'S SHOT a big show to win again on what is his best surface. The 6YO is a three time winner on this all-weather track and while he may need longer to show his best, he will be flying late and can win in this field. The lack of depth to this race will also give the newcomer from Australia - SIERRA CONQUEROR - a chance at his Kranji debut and the two-time winner could come in for support on race and trial form. But the one that may beat them all is the first emergency, AUTUMN ASSAULT. The 3YO wasn't disgraced in the Saas Fee and bolted in the last time he was on the Poly - albeit in Class 4. Betting Strategy - AUTUMN ASSAULT win, saver on LIM'S SHOT."

Race 7

Larry says, "There are two last start winners in this Kranji Stakes D 1200m Poly sprint and coincidently both I'M INCREDIBLE and GAIN ECLIPSE won as the even money favourites at their respective last starts. They also sat in the death throughout before kicking in the straight to win and, as you would imagine, not much separates the two here. But while GAIN ECLIPSE is honest and did win in this company last start, I'M INCREDIBLE may have some upside after breaking his maiden status with blinkers added for this from gate 1 a bonus. Of the rest with winning hopes, SAHABA has a wide gate to overcome but is in form and this race look suitable while AUSPICIOUS ACE showed enough first up after a spell to give this a shake. Numbers 4, 10, 11, 12 and the two emergencies for exotics. Betting Strategy - I'M INCREDIBLE win."

Race 8

Larry says, "Nothing was jumping off the page to win this Class 3 Poly dash over 1000m until GOLDEN FLAME with just 51.5kg on his back put up his hand. The former Australian had been showing glimpses in Class 4 Company before winning well at his third start in Singapore. More importantly he has trialled well subsequently and that effort looks good enough for this. Who beats him? The two emergencies - CLARTON TREASURE and COUSTEAU - both look to have some say with the CLARTON TREASURE having traffic excuses last start and COUSTEAU running on well to place in this company, while the newcomer from Australia - TIME LORD - has trialled well enough locally to win at his Kranji debut but may need longer to show his best. Betting Strategy - GOLDEN FLAME win."

Race 9

Larry says, "While we can make a case for a couple down the ratings on best form (and behaviour), two progressive types in MAKKEM LAD and LONHRO GOLD are the pair that should fight out this finish. Of the two, MAKKEM LAD has a wide gate to overcome but was impressive when breaking his maiden status first up (with heavy support) after a spell and given he was well thought of as a 2YO without winning, he can go on with the job. LONHRO GOLD has been costly for favourite backers since breaking his maiden status five starts back but is due, gets a handy 3kg claim and will keep MAKKEM LAD more than honest with gate 3 a bonus. Of the others, PIONEER SEVEN can be his own worst enemy but goes well when he gets his act together while the likes of GOOD CATCH and CERDAN - who have both changed stables - could give a sight. Betting Strategy - MAKKEM LAD win, forecast with LONHRO GOLD."
