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

RACE 1

COOL CAT (2) – Living legend at the age of 12! Showing all the right signs in trackwork to expect a bold show here.

HEE’S EGO (8) – Nicely weighted here and finds a suitable race to run well in.

SUPER BIG (1) – In form after narrow defeat on turf and is well drawn but has struggled with big weights in the past.

GOLDEN COIN (3) – Not really bred for sprinting but ran well two starts back over 1000m.

 

RACE 2

KEEP WINNING (10) - Couldn’t quite break through with lightweight last start but will be hitting the line hard with senior rider on.

FORESTO (11) - Now trained by Lee Freedman and has trialled impressively since moving to a different manger.

ACE HARBOUR (8) - Lacks talent to make it to the big time but at this level must be respected.

MR DUJARDIN (13) - Nicely bred staying type who debuts over a mile.

 

RACE 3

TYPHON (5) – Thrice placed 5yo maiden who is best going forward, finds a winnable race here back to 1200m.

RICH FORTUNE (2) – Has run some creditable races of late, booking of Michael Rodd is a positive.

LUCKY GIANT (1) – Working down to lenient mark (52), likes to lead. Place chance.

GREATBALLS OF FIRE (6) – Each-way hope here.

 

RACE 4

TRIGAMY (4) – Big run last time and won recent trial well. Finds an ideal race here to win.

LIM’S FORCE (11) - $24,000 purchase. Has trialled okay and is pitched in at realistic level for debut run.

CERDAN (6) – Stacks of place form, though now 0-20 and on best form can get placed.

NOVA CLASSIC (1) – Place chance.

 

RACE 5

MARGAUX (9) - Has pace and might be hard to run down if she gets an easy lead.

MILLION ROUND (5) - Huge riding change with Benny Woodworth back in the saddle. Watch for strong vibes in the market.

HIPPO VENTURA (2) - Rough hope in moderate race.

MASTER BANGER (4) - Fought on fairly last time. Will need an ounce of luck from a wide gate.

 

RACE 6

SUN DREAM (5) – Three solid runs to -ate here in Singapore and is stepping up to 1400m for the first time and looks as if it will suit and has a touch of class (Group 3 placed).

SIAMESE CAT (2) – Missed out on a run last week in a Class 2, better suited here and looked good in recent trial to suggest a big run is expected.

ELITE INVINCIBLE (1) – Didn’t show a great deal on New Year’s Day when trapped wide throughout, a little can be hoped for now up in distance.

REALLY CAPABLE (6) – Winner at latest start and won a trial in prep for this, strong chance to finish in quartet.

 

RACE 7

GOLAZO (7) - Just missed last time and meets Shoqeet 2kgs better. Gets his chance to turn the tables.

SHOQEET (2) - Promising 4yo who might be a Derby type later in the year. Chasing a hat-trick of wins.

HIDDEN PROMISE (4) - Had the dream run last time and pounced in the straight for a solid win.

PUSAKA (5) - Produced a solid second-up effort to rally late for a strong win. Fitter now and should enjoy the extra trip.

 

RACE 8

KINGS RYKER (1) - Senior rider back on and ran a great race in a similar contest two starts back.

ZAC ACE (3) - Trialling okay for this and rates a chance against moderate opposition.

HAPPY SAGA (5) - Chance if he gets back to best form. Proven winner who has been out the back recently.

MILLENNIUM’S RULE (6) - Rolled forward last time when a battling 4th. Has trialled well since.

 

RACE 9

BRAHMA CIRCUS (2) - Veteran who has been running well without reward. The 2kgs claim for in form apprentice is a bonus.

ELITE BEAST (5) - Recent trial was most encouraging. Look for sharp improvement.

DARCI CHARMER (1) - Veteran who has trialled well.

LIM’S RIPPLE (11) - Back in trip to 1400m after excellent recent win. Rising in grade but looks a promising horse for the future.


RACE 10

PAPERBACK TROOPER (11) – Showed a bit more spark last time out when finishing off in 22.52 when 3rd to the fast-improving Scorpio, this is not strong and can go close.

IMPERIAL FALLS (3) – Not disgraced in two starts so far. He can make his presence felt in this.

STUNNING CAT (9) – Lightly raced 3yo who has trialled well since he has been here, interesting newcomer.

FEROCIOUS (6) – Has some sound form to his name, trialled okay but stable are still winless from 58 runners.
