With nine races to get through, it is MOONGATE STAR who looks the best bet on the card and he will be worth following in the Class 4 third race.  SKYWALK lines up in a rather competitive feature race, when he has 10 others to beat over the 1200m poly track in race 7. Cases can be made for a few in that event, but he will certainly give his followers a good run for their money.

Best Bet: MOONGATE STAR (Race 3)
Value Bet: SKYWALK (Race 7)

Race 1 – 12:20 – Class 5 – 1200m 
Selections: 6 – 2 – 7 – 8 – 11 
RED SOAR has shown good improvement since dropping further in ratings and in class. The son of So Secret would’ve freshened up nicely since his last run 27 days ago and if finding a smooth passage at the jump, he should be a major contender at the business end. POPOSHIRI has been guilty of blowing his chances at the start on more that one occasion. He finds a tricky barrier here and will more than likely be forced to settle off the early speed, but with scope for improvement, he should feature prominently in this modest field. MONTOYA went close to winning over this course and distance just three runs back. He was drawn wide on that occasion so will certainly benefit from gate 3 this time. He seems to have a preference for this surface and on his best form so far, he’ll be involved in the finish. TUSCAN ARTIST drops in trip and returns to the poly track after a useful effort over the turf mile last time. Beaten into 3rd place by just 1.80 lengths, he will be hoping to bring that form on to this surface.

Race 2 – 12:50 – Restricted Maiden – 1200m
Selections: 9 – 1 – 2 – 3 - 12
KHARISMA has shown enough in his first two starts to be a big runner in this line-up. The son of Mossman finds a perfect draw this time and with plenty of scope for improvement, he looks tough to oppose. WAR FRONTIER reverts to the poly after a solid effort on turf last time out. He does seem to have a small preference for the turf which is a small concern but having contended at group level, albeit modestly, he deserves plenty of respect. ACHIEVED MORE is back on the poly where he gave a useful account of himself in his debut run just four starts back. The son of Smart Missile is drawn wide here but has plenty of scope to improve and he has a useful finish. FORT MUSTANG showed solid improvement last time out when trying the poly for the first time. He certainly enjoyed the drop in trip and with Beuzelin retaining the ride, must be included.

Race 3 – 13:20 – Class 4 – 1200m
Selections: 2 – 4 – 5 – 8 – 11
MOONGATE STAR showed brave resolve to overcome a tough draw last time, when racing wide without cover throughout. Beaten by just 0.5 lengths in the end, he now lands a plum draw for his 6th outing here. With a useful record already, he looks tough to beat here. GAMELY FINISHED right behind the top selection last time out and he too has been a model of consistency in his career so far. Having finished in 2nd place on 8 occasions from his 22 career starts, the son of Golden Archer did well to step up to this level last time out. Drawn well again, he should be right there with Maia retaining. HELUSHKA followed up a win double with a solid third last time out, when overcoming gate 9. He finds an even wider draw here, but the increased tempo over the shorter trip should suit him and he deserves inclusion at a decent price. KA CHANCE continues to slip in the ratings, and he is fast approaching a competitive mark going on his recent form. He boxed on well from a wide barrier last time out and with a bit of luck in running from a similar gate, he should be involved in the finish.

Race 4 – 13:50 – Class 5 – 1200m
Selections: 11 – 3 – 4 – 7 – 8 
GOLDEN SPARK showed good improvement last time out having slipped another 2-points after his modest penultimate run. He finds another tricky barrier to negate and after being caught wide last time, he will be looking for more luck at the start. The son of Munnings looks competitive off his current mark of 24 and in this modest company, deserves plenty of respect. CLARTON STAR has also been slipping in the ratings and he seems to be finding some consistency in recent times. He is drawn wide, but the plucky son of Highly Recommended should be boxing on well in the closing stages with Vlad Duric up. HORSE KING appears to be finding form if his last two starts are anything to go by. He is fast approaching a competitive mark having dropped 13 points in his last 6 starts. The improved draws have also assisted, and he will be looking to make his presence felt from barrier 4, once again. BRING ME JOY followed up that recent win with a decent effort last time out, over 1100m. Collett retains the ride once again and she seems to be getting the most out of the 7-year old son of Gorky Park. He steps up to the 1200m now and must be included on his consistent recent form.

Race 5 – 14:20 – Class 2 – 1600m
Selections: 2 – 4 – 5 – 3 – 1
YULONG EDITION looks hard to fault on his recent form, despite his last 5 runs being on turf. With that said, he won his last attempt on this surface and that happened to be over the same distance. He should have no issues with the slight drop in trip after winning his latest over 9-furlongs in yielding going and with Duric up he should be the one to beat. BLACK JADE gave an eye-catching performance over this course and distance last time out, in Group 3 company. Bumped on jumping, he again lost ground passing the 1200m when being steadied off heels after commencing to over race. Finishing just 0.1 lengths off the winner on that occasion, he lands the same draw here and should be very competitive at the business end. KARISTO and SACRED REBEL appear to be the best of the rest and deserve consideration for wider perms.

Race 6 – 14:50 – Class 4 – 1200m 
Selections: 4 – 11 – 2 – 3 – 5 
PRIME TIME has been absent from the course since early January and he would’ve freshened up nicely during his spell off the track. Drawn wide for his comeback run, he will be finishing well if repeating that last run when he came from off the pace to finish 3rd. Beuzelin takes the mount and he knows the son of Written Tycoon well enough. The pair should be the ones to beat here. JK FORMIDABLE seems luckless when it comes to the draws and he lands his 6th wide barrier in a row here. With that said, he has a notable finish and seems to be competitively handicapped at this stage. From off the speed, he should be charging home at the business end and should be the biggest danger to the top one. LAI MAK MAK and LORD O’REILLY have modest recent form to their names, but of the rest they should be the biggest dangers for the top two.

Race 7 – 15:20 – Class 1 – 1200m
Selections: 2 – 5 – 10 – 9 – 6 
SKYWALK showed the expected improvement last time out when returning to his favourite surface. He is well performed at this level and the son of Battle Paint has the credentials to beat this field. Rodd takes the mount and he will be tasked with overcoming a tricky barrier, but he has a useful finish and his followers can expect a massive run here. MY DREAMLINER is a 6-time winner from 9 outings and he now rises into Class 1 territory for his biggest test so far. He is speedy sort and despite the fact that he may prefer slightly shorter, he has plenty of scope and ability and looks a major contender. MURAAHIB is a consistent, versatile sort and he deserves his shot in this class. From a perfect draw, he will enjoy the return to the poly and must be included. STAR OF JUPITER has had a solid start here and he returns to the surface where he won his Singapore debut just three runs back. After a useful effort at Class 2 level last time, he looks well weighted for this rise into Class 1 territory and with more progression to come he deserves consideration.

Race 8 – 15:50 – Class 3 – 1100m
Selections: 5 – 10 – 9 – 11 – 12
SACRED GIFT has won three of his four starts here in Singapore and he appears to be developing into a very useful type. He won his latest with a lot in hand and despite the rise into this class, he should be more than up to the challenge and it is hard to look past the son of Zoustar. WATCH OUT BOSS is yet to miss the first four places in his 13 starts in Singapore, with three wins to boost his credentials. A highly competitive contender, he lands another useful barrier and if building on his latest effort when rising into this class, he should be involved in the finish once again. MAGNUM KING and HUGO are two more contenders with good consistent form their names. They both would’ve been considered big dangers to the top selection had it not been for finding wide gates to overcome, but both are worth including in wider perms.

Race 9 – 16:20 – Class 4 – 1200m
Selections: 2 – 1 – 3 – 5 – 6 
MY EVEREST has done little wrong so far and after that emphatic win last time out, he now steps up from Open Maiden company to Class 4. The rise in trip should suit and despite the wide barrier, he should have the gate speed to find early prominence. With Rodd up, he looks progressive enough to land the double. MIGHTY GENERAL has his local debut after arriving from the UK. A 325,000 Euro yearling and formerly trained by Andrew Balding in the UK, he was a smart winner of the Chester Novice over 1500m. On the back of a solid trial recently and with decent credentials to his name, he must go onto the short list here. ROYAL PAVILION has been in solid recent form in this class and he now finds a plum draw for a bash at landing back in the winner’s enclosure. From a tricky gate last time, he was finishing over the top to find the 3rd box and the son of Casino Prince will be a leading contender if repeating that run. IMPERIUM has been dropping in the ratings for a while now and he is starting to show signs of a big challenge. He has been making late headway on both of his last two efforts and from an improved draw here, deserves respect.
