Race 1

Larry says, "It's safe to say any horse that has two-time Champion Singapore jockey Vlad Duric on-board comes into calculations. But when you consider that the horse he jumps on in the opener - SOUTHERN GLORY - was beaten a whisker by a horse he rode last start (Red Riding Wood), that should make the difference. Obviously the horse is due and the mile looks his caper and he will very hard to beat in a field with no depth. In fact only two horses should bother him on recent form with last start winner KUBERA'S CHIEF and the maiden YULONG HOLY FLYING both worth consideration. KUBERA'S CHIEF steps up from 1200m but handles the trip and should figure prominently while YULONG HOLY FLYING has drawn well enough in gate 7 to think he has every chance in the field to break his maiden status at start 17. ROAN RANGER, BERLINETTA and the emergency, AEOLUS, for exotics. Betting Strategy - SOUTHERN GLORY win."

Race 2

Larry says, "He may be on debut in a good Restricted Maiden field, but given what IN THE BLACK showed at his two Official Trials, he might be hard to beat. The US-bred 3YO looked to be doing it easy on both occasions and from a fair gate (6) with a handy pull in the weights, he must go close. He will need to bring his trial form to the races as EASY SOUTH EAST looks a very handy type. The 3YO showed more than enough on debut to think he wins very soon and given he has backed that effort up with a good trial, he should figure. Of the rest with winning hopes, both GAMELY and AXEL are very honest and should be in the mix. Of the rest, the other debutante - HOSTWIN CHEVALIER - has shown enough at the odd trial to consider in exotics with market best guide while SALAMENCE could improve with blinkers back on. Betting Strategy - IN THE BLACK win."

Race 3

Larry says, "Not too many Class 4's as weak as this one, which should give a newcomer from Australia in SOUTHERN WIND a chance to win at his Singapore debut. The 4YO won once from some nine starts (and placed another five) before arriving and while that win was over 1400m, it was on the synthetic and his good local trial suggests he is ready to show up. In his favour is nothing jumps off the page to beat him expect perhaps for a handy type resuming in FIRE AWAY. The 3YO won once and placed twice from four starts before a short spell and he should be ready to show his best first up and can win in this weak field. Others that could show up given the lack of depth include STAR EMPIRE who lost his rider last start and should go OK in Class 4, DREAMWEAVER with best work expected late with UNCLE LUCKY and LUCKY MASTER also in the mix. Betting Strategy - SOUTHERN WIND win."

Race 4

Larry says, "Another race - this time at KSD level - that has no depth and a former Malaysian in PURPLE RAIN should be hardest to beat. After breaking his maiden by some six lengths before arriving, the 3YO came in for heavy support at his Singapore debut and while beaten into third place, his gutsy effort suggests he will win his share of races and this does look his for the taking. In his favour are the likely challengers in CRAZY DREAM and RED CLAW aren't the types to win out of turn but both very much appreciate the drop to KSD Company and should race well. Of the others, TURF BEAUTY and LIM'S PERSHING could be considered for exotics but a win would surprise. Betting Strategy - PURPLE RAIN win."

Race 5

Larry says, "This Class 4 Poly sprint over 1100m has more depth than the earlier division but again, it is not a strong race which gives SUPER SIX a chance to turn some solid form into a win. The 8YO is certainly due and from gate 4 he should get every chance and will figure prominently throughout for S John. Plenty of others that can win including CROUCHING SUN who will need luck from the wide gate with a 3kg claimer on-board, PIONEER SEVEN who was due prior to having excuses last start, while the only last start winner in the field - THUNDERSTRUCK - will have admirers to go on with the job although this is obviously a tad harder. The improver is OTTAWA down in grade with M Rodd a factor. Include numbers 2, 3, 6 and 8 in exotics. Betting Strategy - CROUCHING SUN each-way."

Race 6

Larry says, "Plenty of winning hopes in this 2000m event and while MAJESTIC EMPRESS hasn't won for a long time, she has placed at all three outings over 2000m and must go close here. Her recent form is solid and she can be in the finish again with Vlad Duric from gate 1 a factor. The most consistent performer in the field is LIM'S PRIDE who has won and placed at his past three starts up to a mile; Troy See stays on and his breeding suggests the trip may be within his compass. For those prepared to be more speculative, MIDDLE KINGDOM won over this trip in the UK before arrival and his best run in Singapore was over this trip in better company, while ZA'EEM is suited in this class and whilst untried at 2000m, races as though the trip will suit he could be running on late. Of the others ALAMAK will be running on and should be each-way value, while LARRY, SUN PITTSBURGH and WAIALAE can be considered in exotics. Betting Strategy - MAJESTIC EMPRESS win."

Race 7

Larry says, "A strong KSC with some smart ones involved. JOMO was expected by many to win last start after having no luck at his previous outing. The 4YO disappointed on that occasion but gets a tongue-tie after the jockey reported respiratory noises and while drawn wide, he can win on best form. SACRED REBEL was a promising horse before arriving and showed at his Singapore debut he is a horse to follow and the step up to 1200m on the turf looks ideal. Plenty of others that can win including the smart fillies SIAM VIPASIRI resuming with a nice trial and ARARAT LADY on the back of two wins, while FAME STAR is coming off a tough win in Novice class and can be followed. RICHEBOURG charged home in Class 3 last start and gets Vlad Duric so also has to be seriously considered, while TARO SAN and JULIUS CAESAR could add value to exotics. Betting Strategy - RICHEBOURG each-way."

Race 8

Larry says, "Another KSC with several promising ones involved. GINGERELLA has won both outings in Singapore since coming from Perth and should be on the speed throughout with Vlad Duric retaining the ride. The threat may come from the stablemate resuming in SIAM BLUE VANDA. The 3YO showed plenty of promise last preparation winning three of four starts including a Class 3 over this trip, has been trialling solidly and should be prominent for Glen Boss. Of the others, MADE IN RUSSIA is always a show in races like this and blinkers go back on, while BARTIMAEUS won in Class 4 on the poly at his Singapore after placing at only previous start in NZ; he is up in grade and drawn poorly but cannot be discounted. Betting Strategy - GINGERELLA win."

C MURRAY (N/A) DL FREEDMAN (N/A) 8 72 58.0 *** Battled away last start and blinkers go back on. Previous form sound and was runner-up in this class three starts back. Should be handy throughout.
4 1117 SIAM BLUE VANDA TT G BOSS (N/A) M CLEMENTS (N/A) 4 70 58.0 *** Resuming after showing promise last preparation winning three of four starts including a Class 3 over this trip. Trialling solidly. Should be prominent for Glen Boss.
5 63870 SOUTHERN SPUR B, SR APP CC WONG (N/A) J SAIMEE (N/A) 7 67 56.5 ** Hampered in straight last start when resuming and looked to have some in hand so keep safe at odds.
6 4498* ARC TRIUMPH APP I AMIRUL-2 (N/A) J PETERS (N/A) 14 66 56.5 * Resuming. Did not show up at trial. Best form on poly and poorly drawn.
7 1 BARTIMAEUS TT R WOODWORTH (N/A) HW TAN (N/A) 15 66 56.5 ** Won well after tough run at Singapore debut in Class 4 on poly. Promising but poorly drawn and will find this harder.
8 825*5 BENGAL LANCER M RODD (N/A) C BROWN (N/A) 1 66 56.5 * Resumed solidly and subsequently trialled soundly but may want longer to show his best.

APP R ISKANDAR-4 (N/A) C BROWN (N/A) 2 66 56.5 * Ran on fairly last start when resuming on poly and blinkers go back on. Claim helps and better on turf. Could show up from good gate.
10 25*8* LONGHU TT B THOMPSON (N/A) S BAERTSCHIGER (N/A) 5 65 56.5 * Only battled last start. Might need easier and poly.
11 36*5* LIM'S DASHING T SEE-1 (N/A) S GRAY (N/A) 13 64 55.0 ** Was running on late last start when resuming on poly. Poorly drawn again but best form on turf and could be closing late.
