Winning Form brings us their best bets and tips for Sunday’s racing from Kranji.
VALUE BET – WECANDO
TOP BET – ROCKETSHIP
Racing this Sunday sees an entertaining twelve race programme at Kranji Racecourse with a host of top-quality racing on offer, the top bet and value bet, should be followed closely.
RACE 1 – Time: 06:00 Class 5 Handicap -1200m
AMORE AMORE encouraging second last time out, but he is not really a model of consistency. If he reproduces his last run, then he should have a say in this. SUPER SPEED did not quite measure up when risen to Class 4 company but was a lot more competitive when dropped back in Class 5 last start. His more of a Polytrack horse but he was placed twice on turf. LUCKY JINSHA broke maiden status in his last start when blinkers fitted to him. Drawn wide again but should still have a say in this.
RACE 2 – Time: 06:30 Maiden- 1200m
ROCKETSHIP from the Ricardo Le Grange stable has the strongest form in the race and should take a power of beating in this contest. DRAGON SANDS a solid third to Renzo last time out and that form is certainly good enough to make an impact in this race. SAND BOX hated the yielding conditions last time out and will be better suited on a sounder surface with Danny Beasley booked.
RACE 3 – Time: 07:00 Class 4 Handicap – 1200m
KING ALBERT PARK disappointing run after showing ability in his maiden win. Switches back to winning surface, Polytrack and must have a say. GRAND FIGHTER not without ability but didn’t have much luck in his last couple of starts. Blinkers off. Low barrier can help him bounce back this time. MEGA GOLD didn’t run too badly in his comeback run after being away for almost a year. Will strip fitter for this. Nice barrier. Warrants consideration.
RACE 4 – Time: 07:30 Maiden -1200m
HOLY ELEANOR beaten twice in Singapore when well fancied. She has shown good speed, and this could be third time lucky with Vlad Duric in the saddle once again. MELLAD the step-up in trip and a start on turf can help produce a good run but he must overcome a poor gate. MASTER PLAYER didn’t shape too badly on debut in a better race and can improve on that here.
RACE 5 – Time: 08:00 Class 5 Handicap – 1100m
NEW GARDEN a course and distance winner who has been runner-up in his last two starts and should be right there again. MY HORSE up five points for a nice win in his last start. He has some class and should go close again. UNCLE LUCKY was poor last time, but the form prior was much better. One to watch with Hakim Kamaruddin booked.
RACE 6 – Time: 08:30 Class 5 Handicap -1700m
SAYONARA in good form. Scored a nice win on Polytrack over the mile last time. Will get the run of the race from barrier one. Leading chance. ENDLESS seldom disappoints these days even if he is still a maiden after 32 starts. Came close last time out but the wide draw is a worry. SUN CONQUEROR in his element here. Working well on the training tracks and must have a say here.
RACE 7 – Time: 09:00 Kranji Stakes -1200m
MAKKEM LAD a lot to like about this runner. He loves the course and distance and will be aided by the claim to continue his winning ways. GRAND KOONTA highly rated sprinter who comes into this off a strong trial win and at his best, can give this field a run for their money. KHARISMA one of Singapore’s most improved horse this season. Has proven he is up to this class and will be fighting out the finish.
RACE 8 – Time: 09:30 Class 5 Handicap -1200m
VOLUNTAD close to shedding maiden status. Narrow second last start, with jockey queried for his lack of vigour in straight. Can go one better. MAXIMILIAN often thereabouts, probably needs more ground, but he can still finish on top of them if the pace is on. SUN ELIZABETH every chance but was one-paced in his last start. Drawn off the track. Blinker-pacifiers off. Decent chance in this moderate affair.
RACE 9 – Time: 10:00 Class 4 Handicap -1200m
LADY SPRINTBOK in a good patch of form lately. Likes to jump and be up amongst the leaders. If she gets to the front without too much trouble she could surprise here. KING LOUIS last start was his best run for some time. He gets his chance again to put another victory on his record. STRONG N BEST his best performances in his short career have come over this distance and on this surface. Never far behind the winner in his recent starts.
Race 10 – Time: 10:30 Class 5 Handicap-1100m
HYDE PARK unbeaten at this level from just a couple of starts and has multiple champion jockey Vlad Duric onboard over a winning course and distance. A lot to like here. THE BROTHERHOOD in good form and working towards another victory. A must for the Top 4. HELLO MICHELLE, up 13 points for a couple of nice wins. Things get tougher now off her inflated mark. Place chance.
Race 11 – Time: 11:00 Class 3 Handicap -1200m
HEARTENING FLYER ran a strong second to his stablemate Celavi in a Class 2 level last start and was finishing strongly. Back in class and looks a big runner in this. SURE WILL DO has an impressive record to-date. Has won four of his six starts and looks ready to run a big race with a nice trial win last week. I AM SACRED one runner who has worked his way up the ratings and comes into this with good form. From a leading stable, so must be respected.
Race 12 – Time: 11:30 Class 4 Handicap -1400m
WECANDO has won over this distance on three occasions and looks suited here for a stable that is in good form of late. GENTLEMEN AGREEMENT ran a super race running second last start after a short break and was running on strongly just going down a short head. Loves this distance and can go close. IRONCHAMP likes to jump and set the running making his own luck. Boxed on solidly in wet conditions last start.
