Race 1

Larry says, "A tricky opener from Kranji with too many Class droppers that improve on recent form to be confident of finding the winner. But IRONCLAD will very much appreciate what will be his first run in Class 5 and while his two wins have been over 1400m, he can race forward, gets a 4kg claim and could be hard to beat on best turf form. FROM THE NAVY placed three starts back in Novice Company on the turf over 1400m and won the last time he raced this trip in Class 5 so he must be a big show, while EASTIGER also won the last time he raced in this Company, so can improve. Add STAR EMPIRE on the back of a good trial and the first emergency - SUN RECTITUDE - who both can win in Class 5. We can't leave out two last start winners with SUN ELIZABETH in very good form in albeit weaker fields than this and the honest FAST AND FEARLESS. Betting Strategy - IRONCLAD each-way."

Race 2

Larry says, "Hopefully we can narrow the winning chances down to four or five in this Restricted Maiden but we can expect good money for KING ALBERT PARK on exposed form and he does look the benchmark. The 3YO did it tough on debut and that effort to be in the winning mix was very good and he only needs an ounce of luck from the awkward gate to win this. On exposed race form, the first emergency - KING ARTHUR - is also due and may even start favourite if he gets a start, although he too will need some luck from the wide gate. CLASSIC THIRTYSIX placed on debut and will find this easier than Novice Company and can win on the back of a nice trial, while BIZAR WINS is the big improver as his recent trial with blinkers and tongue-tie was very good. ROCKETSHIP looks the best of the newcomers on exposed trial form and should figure. Betting Strategy - KING ALBERT PARK win, saver on BIZAR WINS."

Race 3

Larry says, "While you can throw a blanket over more than half the field in this very even Class 4 Poly sprint over 1100m, we will make a strong case for BRUTUS to knock in a well-deserved win. With only one win from some 15 career starts, the 4YO certainly doesn't win out of turn but with excuses not to finish closer last start in Novice Company, he gets every opportunity with just 53kg and gate 1 a bonus. As mentioned, the blanket goes over the likes of MAN ON MYSTERY, COUSTEAU and SNIP (resuming) and if the race is run to suit swoopers, both ROYAL PAVILION and SUPER SMART can figure in the finish. Keep most others safe including the enigma that is HEALTHY STAR on best Poly sprint form. Betting Strategy - BRUTUS win."

Race 4

Larry says, "A Class 5 raffle over two turns on the Poly and we are hoping winning form can hold up with both MARCUS ANTONIUS and LIM'S RHYTHM the two to watch. Not much separates the pair - they met earlier in May where LIM'S RHYTHM won - but MARCUS ANTONIUS had excuses on that occasion, gets Duric from gate 2 and happy to think he can follow up a solid Maiden win with another victory. In that same race, LIM'S RHYTHM just beat SILVER WAY and GINGERMAN and both of those can also figure with no weight. Elsewhere, two Takaoka maidens in FORT MUSTANG and WIND RHAPSODY have to be seriously respected in a race that suits, while BLACK TAIPAN, GRAVEL ROAD and WHIZZY WALTZZY can be included in exotics. Betting Strategy - MARCUS ANTONIUS small win."

Race 5

Larry says, "Once again, the first emergency has a big say in this race if he gets a start and KNIGHT LOVE will be firmly in our thoughts pending scratching’s on the day. Yes, he has been a tad disappointing given the support, but he had excuses last start (traffic and respiratory) and this race looks ideal to get back into the winner circle. In saying that, BUURAQ is due, gets the favours from gate 5 and looks the benchmark at his first start for the Jason Lim stable. VALOROUS will also get every chance from gate 2 and given he looked a good thing beaten last start with traffic excuses late, he can also win without surprising for the in-form Fitzsimmons stable. STRONG N SMART surprised most by breaking his Maiden status in Novice Company last start and he will have admirers with no weight in Class 4 with numbers 3, 7, 8 and 11 for exotics. Betting Strategy - Box 1, 2 and 13 forecast."

Race 6

Larry says, "At first glance this race looks a race in two or three on exposed form with ARION EXPRESS due, OUR SECRET WEAPON in winning form and EXTRA WIN a big show first-up on form from his last campaign. And of those three, ARION EXPRESS certainly looked the winner last start as the odds on pop and connections will be keen to make quick amends and OUR SECRET WEAPON gets Duric and can certainly win again. But it may be a maiden having his first start in Class 5 in BAD BOY BLACK who beats them all. The 3YO has plenty of speed so the 1000m is ideal and two recent trials good enough to suggest he has a big say first-up with Beasley a factor. One more to watch at value is BIG MARY who appreciates the better gate in what is a suitable race. Betting Strategy - BAD BOY BLACK each-way."

Race 7

Larry says, "MIEJ should win this race. Yes, he is the emergency acceptor and has 59g to carry if he does get a start but his form in Class 4 on the turf is easily good enough to win in this field with hopefully a senior hoop booked. But as it stands, the race looks a raffle with the likes of FOREVER GOOD having excuses last so can win, while LAI MAK MAK has very honest form to his name and must be respected with no weight. Add his stablemate BARBEQUE into the mix on best form and ANPANMAN is probably the most honest in the race with a very forward run expected. VOLUNTAD, SILVER SWORD and RICH FORTUNE all have to be considered but MIEJ wins if he gets a run. Betting Strategy - MIEJ strong win, saver on FOREVER GOOD."

Race 8

Larry says, "We love a Class dropper in form and while GREEN STAR comes off a poor run, that was on the turf and the Poly specialist looks very well placed to win this. Not only does he drop to his recent winning grade, but his two recent Class 3 placings on the Poly have him the one to beat with any luck from the awkward gate. Obviously the winning SATURNO SPRING form will hold up in what is a similar affair and TANGIBLE can turn the tables from a good gate with Chavez retaining the ride, while GOLD REWARD and SOLO SUN will be right on their heels. Add BORN TO WIN into the winning mix and expect a busy finish. Betting Strategy - GREEN STAR win."

Race 9

Larry says, "One thing is for sure in this Class 5 1700m Poly event, POROSHIRI will look the winner at some stage in the straight. Unfortunately he will also put his head up in the air in the straight - probably late - and while it was no issue last start when bolting by more than six lengths, it can be costly. But that win was too good not to follow and he can carry an extra 4.5kg and win again. He also gave the likes of ZOFFSPEED, ETWAS NUES, LION SPIRIT and SUN CONQUEROR a galloping lesson on that occasion but it is Class 5 and all these horses can win on best form if POROSHIRI lets them have a crack late. Add RUNMINDERBINDERUN, MATSURIBAYASHI and TIGAROUS (the improver) at odds into the mix and good luck if playing exotics. Betting Strategy - POROSHIRI win."

Race 10

Larry says, "A cracking race and with Mike Clements having three runners with winning chances. Interestingly, the unofficial stable rider - Louis Beuzelin - jumps on the seemingly out of form KARISTO but the 6YO gets blinkers and is worth serious thought second up at value. Beuzelin was on HEARTENING FLYER last start when the promising 4YO failed to flatter but the horse has plenty of upside and Simon Kok looks a good booking on the back of an easy trial. QUARTER BACK is Clements third runner and he will be strong late and looks due. Plenty of others that win without surprising and HARDCORE has winning second up form and looks very well placed to win this with Duric up, while it's hard to ignore the winning form of SAVVY COMMAND who keeps his recent winning hoop, Jerlyn Seow. GOLD STAR the other that can be backed with some each-way confidence on recent form but you can go much wide in exotics. Betting Strategy - HEARTENING FLYER win."

Race 11

Larry says, "A very odd Class 4 race where the three top picks on recent form are all yet to win in Singapore. MASTER RYKER has had six starts at Kranji and while the former Australian Group 3 winner has only placed once, he drops in Class, handles the Poly and gets every chance from gate 1 with a Seow 4kg claim. AFTERMATH has had two sighters in Singapore but has shown enough to think he wins very soon and probably starts favourite with Duric retaining the ride in what is a suitable race. The former Argentinean - TEARDROPS - battled strongly after a tough run at his Singapore debut but a subsequent good trial suggests he is right in this with Chavez up. One of this trio should win but ENTERTAINER obviously has recent winning form so has to be kept safe. Betting Strategy - MASTER RYKER win."
