Trevor Reid: Singapore race by race analyisis for Friday 12 October
CASSIS OOLONG (8) – Holding his form well and the booking of Olivier
Placais catches the eye. Every chance.
OL MATE BUZZER (1) – Gets in to a Class 5 for the first time and given
it is not a strong heat, he may well have found a nice opportunity.
THOTH WARRIOR (3) – Finds a suitable race to show best form back to 1000m.
COOL CAT (10) – Met trouble in running last week, can run well judged
on previous form.
HUGO (5) – Was always upfront in last race. Fought “tooth and nail”
down the stretch with Mach and lost by ½ L. What was interesting is
that the third horse was an easy two lengths behind the pair. Hugo
should have improved from that run and with Daniel Moor on board – he
should collect on second run.
SIAM VIPASIRI (12) – Comes out of the Group 2 Aushorse Golden
Horseshoe for this comeback race. Has trialled twice since the big
race – Glen Boss has been prepping this horse and takes the ride.
SILVER WAY (9) – Has had two good trials – but blotted his copybook
after a poor run on debut (Sept 23). Take that below-par effort – and
looking at its two trials – does have a good chance.
ON THE RAZZ (8) – Been progressing nicely in his trials. Last run on
18th Sept – third in a trial. Prepped nicely and Michael Rodd gets on
ACROSS THE SEA (6) – The form of his Kranji D win last time out has
worked out well with Sacred Magic winning next time out. He is largely
consistent and would have every chance.
LONGHU (3) – Back in the winner’s circle on most recent start after 16
months without a success (racing in better company), he won with a bit
in hand last time out and should be able to back it up with a solid
Q NINE MILLION (8) – Finished off strongly last start when third, and
if there is plenty of tempo on here, he can be seen to good effect.
MONTAIGNE (1) – Now back into Class 4 which will suit and his last win
was over course and distance. Include.
HEART OF COURAGE (1) – A chance can be taken on this Mark Walker
newcomer in what is a rather weak-looking maiden. Placed over both
1400 and 1600m in New Zealand, his trial in September was good and
might just be too good for a limited bunch.
SO CALLED (6) – A better run on the Polytrack last time out under
champion jockey Vlad Duric over slightly shorter and a repeat of that
run will see him go close.
DAVID’S STAR (4) – Won a recent trial quite nicely in 60.87. So comes
into this well prepared.
ASHHAB (3) – Has shown enough in two runs here in Singapore to make
his presence felt on Friday night.
CRACKING TOTTIE (3) – Won last time out in the manner of a mare with a
bit in hand of the handicapper, when scoring by 1 ¾ lengths in this
grade under one of the best tactical rides we are likely to see all
year from Michael Rodd. Goes up in trip here which will suit and
should prove hard to beat.
LIM’S RIPPLE (4) – Has some solid ‘staying’ form here in Singapore and
comes through a competitive Class 4 Non Premier last start on Raffles
Cup day. Can give the top pick most to think about.
RICH BEAUTY (6) – Just ahead of Lim’s Ripple last time (Lim’s Ripple’s
weight to turn form around here) and we know that she stays well. Must
O’REILLY STAR (5) – An all-the-way winner on Jockeys Challenge night
under Rab Havlin over 1800m. Has more on his plate here but is worth
ELITE INVINCIBLE (3) – Winner of the Group 1 Charity Bowl having also
won the Group 2 Stewards’ Cup over this course and distance in June.
He missed a run in the Raffles Cup and now returns here. He is the
class act in the line-up.
TESORO PRIVADO (9) – An ultra-talented galloper who continues to
impress with racing having won nicely when last seen in August over
the mile. He has trialled very well since and would look more than
capable of going close here.
ABSOLUTE MIRACLE (10) – Three course and distance wins to his name and
ran an improved race last time out over the mile. Another effort like
that will see him go close.
VOLKSTOK’N’BARRELL (2) – Would have needed the run last time and now
goes up in trip, which is a plus. He is a class horse and don’t be
surprised to see him run home nicely.
ATLANTIC FOX (10) – On debut in Singapore. Brings serious credentials
from metropolitan grade in Australia. Will appreciate further in
journey going forward but recent trial suggests a forward showing
fresh. Must be respected.
REVOLUTION (8) – Consistent customer who has developed a serious
record in a short career. This assignment is tougher but has plenty of
upside to further improve. Switches back to the turf track which will
be no issue. Contender.
DESTROYER ECLIPSE (1) – Bounced back to winning form in impressive
fashion last time out. Switches to the turf surface where he is yet to
record a finish on the podium which is some concern, but must be
considered on best efforts.
ASTROJET (12) – Well beaten last time out but can make amends in this
affair with conditions to suit. Will appreciate the step-up in trip,
switches back to the turf and is well drawn to figure at the business
end. Major player.
KEEPITUP (2) – Having his first start for the in-form Shane
Baertschiger team when running home very powerfully behind the useful
Pennywise at big odds. He has trialled well since and now down in
grade, can go one better.
KING ZOUSTAR (3) – The form of his maiden win isn’t the strongest in
the world but could do no more than win it well. He can continue to
STREETWISE (6) – Downgraded from the Aushorse Golden Horseshoe last
time and has trialled well since that run. Now wears blinkers and
should go very well.
DAVID’S SLING (1) – Course and distance form is well respected and
gets the assistance of champion jockey Vlad Duric.
Thanks for that.Many thanks for this.Many thanks.
