Race 1

Larry says, "Another tricky Class 5 opener but while a few could improve dropping in grade, LUCKY SIX looks the biggest beneficiary of the company on recent form. The 7YO has been honest enough to spend a couple of years in Class 4 or thereabouts and some of his recent efforts suggests he can win this with gate 1 a factor. HIGH LIMIT also drops to Class 5 but he looks a risk on recent form with the tote a good guide. Of those with good recent form in this grade to their name, JK FORMIDABLE won two back and just missed last start but has a wide gate to contend with, while HOST THE NATION and last start winner, SUPERTEN should figure very heavily in this finish. Market best guide on the others, including MIKCAIPHO on the quick back up. Betting Strategy - LUCKY SIX win."

Race 2

Larry says, "You put a line through at least six of these runners, which hopefully makes what looks a tough race on paper, one that exotics punters could enjoy. AMAZING CHOICE looks the standout on paper given he led two back and just missed over 1200m before running on solidly with traffic excuses to place last start. From gate 1 we would expect him to lead and be very hard to pass. If something was to beat him, the first emergency in SPOKESMAN could be the one. The 4YO can also lead if required and certainly has the recent form on the board to think he wins a race sooner than later. Nothing else jumps off the page although BENCOOLEN improves from a fair gate with Duric retaining the ride, while BEST BAY is in very solid form and hopefully gets her chance. Of the rest, MA BAO BAO improves on trial form with blinkers first time, with the newcomer SUN FORMATION and NATE'S HONOUR two to include somewhere. Betting Strategy - stand out BENCOOLEN in exotics with 1, 3, 4, 7, 9 and 13."

Race 3

Larry says, "A fairly even field heads to the start of this Class 4 turf sprint so while we will concentrate on the top four horses in the ratings, it will pay to go as wide as the budget permits in any exotic bets. Of those we think can win, WONDERFUL KNIGHT is in extremely honest form, can overcome a sticky gate and lead and should look the winner at some stage late. BEAUTIFUL DAY is the only last start winner in the capacity field and happy to think he can back that Poly win up with another on the turf with support likely. SILENT FORCE won a similar affair to this two back and while slightly disappointing last start, he should figure with a cosy run expected from gate 5. TIME TO ROCK looks ready to win again and the switch to the turf looks no issue with his visor removed. Include numbers 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 in exotics. Betting Strategy - WONDERFUL KNIGHT each-way."

Race 4

Larry says, "This maiden is as ugly for punters as the other division (race 2) but again there could be a stand out for exotics and this time it's RAPIDASH who needs to win. The 5YO was obviously disappointing with strong support last start but did return a roarer on that occasion and can win on form prior. Again, nothing jumps off the page to beat him but PAKATAN WARRIOR placed last start and that form is better on paper than anything else, while GLAMOROUS - who had excuses last start (lame) - can lead from gate 2 and give them all something to catch. If EXCELLENT MOON gets a start then keep him safe as he come off two cheeky runs and could try to pinch this from gate 2. Include numbers 1, 3, 5 and 6 in exotics. GLAMOROUS each-way."

Race 5

Larry says, "A few unknowns in this Class 4 Poly mile including AWESOME and SMART INVESTMENT having first crack over this trip and MIDDLE KINGDOM racing on the Poly for the first time. But you could make a case for all three and a market watch could be the order of the day. As it stands, FORESTO has only battled at his last two but a recent good trial suggests he can improve and can win on his form prior, while CARIBBEAN LADY gets the favours from gate 2, is in form and could be hardest to beat. Of the others that win without too much of a surprise, BRACED has found form and had excuses last start not to finish closer and YULONG XIONG HU could be the improver on the Poly down in class. Betting Strategy - CARIBBEAN LADY win, saver on YULONG XIONG HU."

Race 6

Larry says, "A Class 5 raffle to open the Jackpot (Quaddie) and while we will make a case for three or four, the tote will be as a good as guide as any on the day. Case in point is JK FLASH who has had issues (lame) at his last couple but showed enough three back to win if right. However, the horses that look due look the safer bet and THOTH WARRIOR certainly deserves to win a race like this, PARKER has a wide gate but will work into this late, while BRING ME JOY can lead from gate 3 and will look the winner at some stage. MAKE U FAMOUS, RICH FORTUNE and the emergency, CASSIS OOLONG, just three more to keep safe. Betting Strategy - THOTH WARRIOR small win."

Race 7

Larry says, "A competitive Novice with no real standouts. MO ALMIGHTY has changed stables after running in better company of late, placing fourth in the Singapore Guineas and placing at his two previous Novice outings. Earlier in his career MO ALMIGHTY ran second to BOLD THRUSTER in the Group 3 SAAS Fee Stakes and that is better credentials than any others in this field. QUADCOPTER hasn't won for a while but was runner-up in similar company last start over this trip; from gate one he should be on the speed throughout. There are several coming off Maiden wins and the best of those may be BUSHIDO who showed his best work late over 1200m last start, looks to have improvement and 1400m may suit. Other last start winners CATCH THE TIGER and ACROBAT are worthy of consideration as is IMPLEMENT who looks ready to win in Singapore. Betting Strategy - MO ALMIGHTY win."

Race 8

Larry says, "Mark Walker may hold the key here with three of the better chances, two of which are poorly drawn. The one with the best gate is MAN OF MYSTERY who has been runner-up at his past three outings and just missed in this grade last start; with the 4kg claimer Nizar replacing Vlad Duric, he should be near the speed for a long way. The stablemate RED ROVER had support at his Singapore debut and fought on well to place; he should be improved but his only win was at 1200m and the outside gate means he will back and try and close late. The third of the Walker runners is COUSTEAU who has not been far away of late and will be doing best late. Of the others LIM'S BLAST improved second-up to just miss over this trip last start and from a good gate with a 3kg claim, he can improve further and could up upset the Walker stranglehold. TOOSBIES got the job done in last start over 1100m in this grade; he rises 3.5 kg but should be prominent again. Betting strategy: MAN OF MYSTERY win."

Race 9

Larry says, "A competitive Class 4 with a couple of interesting newcomers but the benchmark may be the 3YO filly, LADY ARARAT. She will find this easier than her past two outings - one in Group class - she won on the poly in this grade three starts back over 1100m and will be hard to run down from good gate with Michael Rodd aboard. SACRED GURU was only over-run late in this grade last start and with Benny Woodworth back on he should be prominent. LIM'S KNIGHT is racing soundly in this class and the distance suits; with a 4kg claim for Yusoff he can be in the finish. The wild cards are the two newcomers. I AM THE ONE has not been well served by the gate but bring good form from Australia, has been trialling well and could show up. SUN RECTITUDE won a Wyong Maiden over 1200m and placed at all five starts in NSW before arrival; he too trialled well, watch the market. SIAM MP is resuming and showed promise at first preparation so include in exotics. Betting Strategy - LADY ARARAT win, saver on I AM THE ONE."
