Race analysis and race selections for Friday's racing at Kranji

RACE 1

KUBERA'S CHIEF (5) - Could be due another win judged on his latest three performances from this course and distance last October.

SECONDWAVE (9) - Very respectable when fourth to Thoth Warrior last time and wouldn't be the biggest shock in the world if this 9yo went close to winning here.

DOMINY (1) - Frontrunner still yet to win but there aren’t many miles on the clock. Place chance.

PARKER (2) - Less inclined to spend as much time in the basement grade as some of these but would be better suited to slightly further.

 

RACE 2

KEY SUCCESS (2) - Now with Donna Logan and looked good in winning a recent trial in (61.66). He has a nice way of going and faces a lesser field than last time out. Big player.

BOARD WALK (1) - Finishes in the first four in just under half of his starts here (70 runs) and can again run a sound race.

SILVER WIN FORTUNE (7) - Didn't run at all badly last time. Watch the market for clues.

SUPER DAN (11) - Needs to lift a little on Class 5 win on latest outing, though his trainer Young Keah Yong is having plenty of winners of late.

 

RACE 3

MOMENT OF JUSTICE (6) - Closed off in good style behind runaway winner Galileo's Approach last time out in his favoured blinkers. A repeat of that run will see him go very close over a trip he has scored over before.

DUSSELDORF (3) - Only found a well-backed favourite too good on Kranji Mile day under Wong Chin Chuen. Given the way he stayed on at the finish, the step-up in trip is ideal.

LITTLE MASTER (2) - Holding form nicely at present and is certainly one to keep 'on side' here.

KHUDAWAND (8) - Include as the value play in the contest. Still, race will suit.

 

RACE 4

MY BIG BOSS (9) - Shaped with plenty of promise after badly missing the start on debut. Loads of scope for improvement. Nice horse for the future.

MAKKEM LAD (8) - Second to Pennywise is very good 2yo form and should continue to progress.

STREETWISE (13) - Has been showing well at the trials and can fare best of the newcomers in this line-up.

LIM'S LIGHTNING (7) - Green and a decent third behind two nice 3yos on debut. Certainly one to include here.

 

RACE 5

DESTROYER ECLIPSE (5) - Shaped very well, when staying on into third in a similar race last time out. Lightly enough raced to suggest he can turn the tables on Arr Flair this time around.

ARR FLAIR (1) - Probably doesn't win as many as might be expected but has been in very good form recently and can once again go well.

COME AND TAKE ALL (8) - The handicapper has eased him a couple of points, and that might help his chance here.

BARNATO (4) - Trialled well prior to this and can get competitive off his current mark.

 

RACE 6

NICATOR (5) - This is not a strong race by any stretch and it could well prove the opportunity he needs to shed his maiden tag.

CHAIRMAN WIND (1) - This race looks tailor-made for this 5yo on previous form.

POWERFUL AS WIND (8) - Just the one win to his name but is in decent form for one in this grade and that surely counts for something.

TOOBIGTOFAIL (9) - All wins on the Polytrack but has run okay races on turf. Light weight helps matters.

 

RACE 7

KINGSMAN (1) - Useful type, who went within a nose to winning last time when apprentice ridden (rider dropped reins last 50m). Now up in trip and can atone for that narrow defeat.

YULONG XIONG HU (9) - Has a very progressive profile in only five starts to date. Winning nicely over slightly further last start should see him go well in this.

LIM'S KNIGHT (8) - Third over 1200m only last Sunday. Given the way he was finishing, he looks worth a go at the mile.

WINNING CAUSE (6) - Can easily be one for the quartets on his best form.

 

RACE 8

DUTROW (2) - Can be the answer in this. With some nice Polytrack form to his name, he should once again run a good race.

FILIBUSTER (6) - Course record holder over this course and distance. Her fifth last time was very good. Expect a bold showing from this big girl.

HIMALAYA DRAGON (1) - A model of consistency for connections and always runs her race.

SILKINO (10) - Would look a solid place chance in this field.

 

RACE 9

LIM'S ARCHER (6) - Group 3-placed last year and should have come on nicely for his first-up run a fortnight ago. Stays this trip well and could prove the one to be with in a trappy little heat.

MR SCORSESE (8) - Judged on his course and distance runs prior to his latest performance, he has every chance with some good form in the book.

MAGIC WAND (11) - Very impressive with a recent trial win (61.78) and continues to make good progress.

TARGET (4) - Has come a long way in a short space of time. A winner in the grade last time, but does need to translate Polytrack form to turf now.

 

RACE 10

SKY ROCKET (4) - Was flying home at the death on Kranji Mile day and can go one better here now up to 1400m.

LUCKY STRIDE (1) - Third in behind a couple of useful performers when last seen and is very well suited by these conditions.

DARCI CHARMER (2) - Winless for three years to the day. Has been racing well of late and his third to Mr Clint is excellent form.

BATTLE OF TROY (5) - Could add some value here now he is returning to 1400m.
