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

RACE 1

GAIN ECLIPSE (6) – Benefitted greatly from that first outing when she tried hard to pinch some ground off the winner Quarter Back. Likely improver here. Go close.

PRATT STREET (3) – Will drop back from wide alley and rely on his turn of foot to claim this. In good shape and warrants plenty of consideration.

DAZZLING SPEED (2) – Never got a chance to come across on debut. Burned too much petrol to stay in the lead. Softened up and duly compounded. Has drawn wide again which does not help his cause, but he has improved and may be able to hang on for a place this time.

DRAGON GOLD (11) – Every chance at last start but winner Haytham was too good. Senior jockey gets on board. Commands respect.


RACE 2

PETITE VOIX (11) – Caught wide without cover on debut but still stuck on gamely for a smack-up third. Better luck at the barriers this time. Leading hope.

ELENA OF AVALOR (10) – Never a factor last start. Reverts to Polytrack which she seems to show handier form on. Can make amends.

ASIA (3) – Not seen since creditable debut second almost a year ago. Looked the part in last barrier trial on May 31. May need the run, but a placing is not beyond him.

FLASH (1) – Made promising start in Singapore but last run was disappointing. Don’t write him off just yet. Meets easier opposition. Place claims.


RACE 3

EASTIGER (1) – Lost no marks since his maiden win four runs back. Should be in with a shout even if the wide alley is a dampener. Still cannot be ignored in this.

ALAMOSA EXPRESS (3) – Nice effort after a short freshen-up last outing. Will strip fitter for this. In the hunt for a long way.

LADRONE (10) – Keep an eye on him from barrier No 1. Dangerous if left alone upfront.

BASILISK (6) – Plodded on for seventh place last time out. Six furlongs will suit better. Can make presence felt.

RACE 4

REINE DASHER (4) – Is worth another go at this trip given the way he finished off strongly last time out over 1400m. This isn’t a deep race, and looks a good opportunity for him.

HIDDEN PROMISE (1) – Beginning to look rather attractively handicapped now five points lower than his success off 65 in a better race on New Year’s Day.

GOLD REWARD (9) – Hasn’t always looked the most straightforward but did however produce a decent enough run last time out when 3rd. If he reproduces that effort, he is a chance in this.

NORTHERN KNIGHT (5) – Largely disappointing of late but on his best form he could be value to run a cheeky race.


RACE 5

DISTINCTIVE DARCI (1) – Back in his element. Did what he could in the Lion City Cup but this is more his cup of tea. Can bounce back.

SPEEDY DRAGON (3) – Another one who will grow a leg on the Polytrack. First run for trainer Shane Baertschiger. Looked home in a barrier trial on May 31 but John Powell eased up 50m out and in the end ran third. In good nick but sticky gate does not help his cause.

ROYAL RULER (5) – Another Polytrack specialist who scored a brilliant first-up win after an eight-month injury-enforced break. Will be thereabouts again in spite of awkward alley.

JUPITER GOLD (4) – On the other hand, here is one who has not raced on the alternative track for a while. Did win three times on Polytrack early doors. Latest runs have been below-par. Freshen-up might do him a world of good, even if 1200m seems too short.


RACE 6

WECANDO (5) – Has looked very promising in all three starts to date and can prove the one to beat here with plenty of exposed form on show. Should be too good.

WAIALAE (4) – A hardy type who likes to go to the front and was just run out of it on Kranji Mile day by a well-backed winner and a fast-finishing rival. He should go well again.

DAVID’S SLING (6) – Would need to lift a little on his Restricted Maiden win early last month. The step-up in trip could well be a positive move on connections’ part also.

JUSTICE SMART (2) – Has bits and pieces of form to his name and stepping back up in distance is certainly not a negative. Place chance.


RACE 7

RAFAELLO (3) – Ran an excellent fourth in the Group 1 Lion City cup last month. Form figures on this surface read one win and one third (from only two starts). High-class performer who can go very close.

LINCOLN ROAD (2) – Good winner of a recent trial and comes from a stable that is in solid form these days. Conditions suit him well.

AL GREEN (8) – Has been huge in defeat in his last two starts and should give another good account of himself in this.

VIVIANO (4) – In great form at the present time and must be included here.


RACE 8

COUNTOFMONTECRISTO (1) – Classy individual who let down with his customary steady acceleration in the Lion City Cup, but Lim’s Cruiser was too good on the day. 1400m will suit better. Will get the gun run from William Pike.

TANNHAUSER (3) – First time over 1400m but every indication suggests he will see out the distance no problem. Has heaps of untapped potential. Expect a ripper of a race from him.

ONLY WIN (8) – May well give trainer Michael Clements a trifecta. Came with a wet sail at his last start to run fourth to Rafaello. Will relish the extra 200m.

CURVATURE (4) – Progressive individual who faces his biggest test thus far. Drawn wide but did jump from a similar alley two runs back and made light work of his rivals by going all the way. May have to settle for a place.


RACE 9

LIM’S KNIGHT (4)
– Was fourth behind the subsequent Singapore Guineas winner Mr Clint last time out under an inexperienced apprentice. Has conditions in his favour and will benefit from stronger handling.

WALKING THUNDER (10) – Lightly-raced on the turf and judged on his fast finishing third in March off this mark of 68, he can most definitely get competitive in this.

TALES OF SUMMER (6) – Has been racing well of late and should get involved here on the back of a good run.

MY HORSE (3) – Currently in the form of his life. Up 15 points since the turn of the year for three wins, this is his first run on turf and a bit must be taken on trust.
