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

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

RACE 1 
1st Pick: LOVING BABE (3)
Has been racing well and from a good barrier with Ruan Maia booked, he has every chance here.
2nd Pick: DECRETO (12)
Racing in good order currently and there is no reason why he shouldn't be involved again in the finish.
3rd Pick: MOWGLI (4)
Vlad Duric is booked for this four-year-old and can continue to go well in this grade.
4th Pick: DUSSELDORF (9)
Best of the rest and could be decent value.

RACE 2 
1st Pick: LIM'S DREAMWALKER (11)
Improving with each start and did show signs of greenness last time out. He looks like a progressive type and has only a lightweight being a three-year-old and can get the job done here.
2nd Pick: DAY APPROACH (1)
Runner-up at all three starts to date and has a very decent level of form. Should be bang there when it matters. Leading chance.
3rd Pick: GOLDEN ONE (8)
Stoutly bred type who went well last time out over this trip and is the sort to continue in the right direction.
4th Pick: ORACLE (12)
Just the one start (well fancied) and won a trial since. One to watch.

RACE 3 
1st Pick: HEAVENLY DANCER (2)
Unbeaten at his two starts, interestingly six months apart. Takes on similar Class 4 opposition from his last-start win, and sticks with Polytrack. Will probably drop back from the awkward alley. Hard to beat.
2nd Pick: BLUESTONE (1)
Stormed home for third to Hugo at his last outing. Nice low draw, but he gets back anyway. Will be a big threat inside the last furlong.
3rd Pick: LONGHU (6)
Was ridden more positive last time out. Stuck on nicely for third to Moon Face. May have to get back from the wider gate this time. Looks well-in on weights. Outside chance.
4th Pick: UNCONQUERED (3)
Two of three wins were recorded over course and distance. Doesn’t win out of turn, and wide barrier does not help his cause but is not without some claims in this.

RACE 4 
1st Pick: MIEJ (11)
Lightly raced from a powerful stable and looks hard to beat.
2nd Pick: MR FAT KIDDY (1)
Has plenty of place form and can prove best of the rest after Miej.
3rd Pick: ALL WE KNOW (3)
An interesting runner judged on the pick of his Restricted Maiden form. Keep safe.
4th Pick: PHAXE (7)
One to complete the quartet in this.

RACE 5 
1st Pick: SO YOU TOO (4)
Nearly got off the mark last time out. Has got the foot on the till. Warrants plenty of consideration.
2nd Pick: MASTER RYKER (5)
Expensive failure at his last start. Didn’t go as well on turf as he did on the Polytrack at his Kranji debut. Stays on turf. Can make amends.
3rd Pick: GOLD STAR (2)
Steamed home for a close-up fourth at his last start. Might find this too sharp again. Place claims.
4th Pick: SIAM WARRIOR (1)
Form has been up and down. Can beat this lot on best form, but wide gate is a query. Take on trust.

RACE 6 
1st Pick: SUN HOLIDAY (11)
In what is not a very strong race, the advice is to side with the Lee Freedman trained Sun Holiday who was good in defeat on latest run.
2nd Pick: WHERE SHE'S HAPPY (13)
Well backed last time out when runner-up to Tobruk and wouldn't need to build greatly on that to figure here.
3rd Pick: CLARTON SUPREME (2)
One to include for the multiples here.
4th Pick: EASYLIGHTS (6)
Not much form to call on but he might show more now that he is in a weaker contest.

RACE 7 
1st Pick: LIM'S UNIQUE (7)
This son of Uncle Mo won't find an easier opportunity to win a race than this one. Tentative selection.
2nd Pick: JK FORMIDABLE (3)
On best form, can go well in a race of this nature.
3rd Pick: TWILL GUY (5)
1100m winner and has shown more than most in this race. One to include in the exotics.
4th Pick: THE ICEMAN (4)
Stable are in good form and if returning to his better form, The Iceman isn't out of this.

RACE 8 
1st Pick: TRADING POST (2)
Smart type who wasn’t quite ready for a race like the Singapore Guineas at his last run. This is more up his alley. Will be in the firing line for a long way.
2nd Pick: RAMBO (1)
Came home a fraction too late at his second start. Daniel Meagher yard is in bad need of a win. From wide barrier, he will be eased off the speed and ridden for luck. He could be the horse to turn saviour for the stable.
3rd Pick: HARD TOO THINK (6)
Lived up to pre-race hype at second start. Faces stiffer task here but on the way he recorded his second-up win, he should be in the shake-up. Marble one.
4th Pick: STREET PARTY (13)
Has been hitting around the mark since racing resumed. Deserves a win but may find one or two better here.

RACE 9 
1st Pick: MOON FACE (6)
Argentinian-bred who has been super impressive at his two wins from as many starts. First test over turf and rising in class. Looks to have plenty of upsides. Should prove hard to beat even at this level.
2nd Pick: ROCKET STAR (4)
Singapore Guineas runner-up who is dropping back in distance. May have to do some work early to overcome horror gate. Reunites with Vlad Duric. Has tonnes of ability but may get there too late.
3rd Pick: WATCH OUT BOSS (9)
Flattered to deceive at his last start for probably his worst run in 17 starts. Worth much better. Looks safely held by first two, but a minor placing is not beyond him.
4th Pick: LIM'S CRAFT (3)
Resuming. Form had tapered off at last couple of starts before long break. Winkers off. Handy barrier. Will need the run but on his class, he can pinch a place.

RACE 10 
1st Pick: INFERNO (8)
Undisputed 3YO kingpin (even if technically he is four). Drops from mile of the Singapore Guineas to 1200m while taking on the big boys at level weights. Can still finish over the top of them if they roll along. Has drawn the carpark, but can still add a Group 1 sprint feather to his cap.
2nd Pick: GRAND KOONTA (4)
If there is one horse who can lower Inferno’s colours, it’s this brilliant James Peters-trained Irish-bred grey. Has thrived since that first-up win on September 26 eight months since his last start. He’s a top-draw sprinter and if he gets the first run on Inferno, he may become the second Peters runner after Siam Warrior to inflict Inferno his second defeat. Will break next door to Inferno.
3rd Pick: FAME STAR (2)
Tough to unseat when he has his way in front. Ran a much-improved race second-up. Has to lead to be at his best. Can be the knockout chance.
4th Pick: MR MALEK (9)
Like Inferno, he is a four-year-old taking on the more seasoned sprinters, but he has shown great maturity at his latest starts. Was scratched from Singapore Guineas after trainer was not happy with his condition, but he seems to have come on since. No luck at the barriers, but his two main rivals have drawn worse. Commands plenty of respect.

RACE 11 
1st Pick: GENTLEMEN AGREEMENT (1)
Let down with a strong run last time but found one better in Heavenly Dancer. Has maintained the same form. Should be able to finish in the money again.
2nd Pick: FAST AND FEARLESS (10)
Has won two in a row in weaker class, but does look like he can hold his own in Class 4. Another bold showing in store.
3rd Pick: REVOLUTION (5)
Making good headway after two runs this prep. Ran a nice trial the week before. Keep safe.
4th Pick: WATER ROCKET (3)
Fought out the finish for third at his last start. Polytrack switch won’t worry him as he’s scored two of his three wins on that surface. Drawn off the track. Go close.
