RACE 1

SUPERTEN (8) – Performed above market expectations when returning from an extended break. Will take further benefit from that outing, so expect bold showing.
JK FORMIDABLE (3) – Hard to knock on recent efforts. Poorly drawn but if he can find the front without doing too much work, he is worth respecting yet again.
LUCKY SIX (6) – Has been struggling to produce best form but capable of making amends stepping back into Class 5. Drawn to get favours, so keep safe.
HOSTWIN QUEEN (2) – Enters Class 5 for the first time. Has been tending to mix form but is worth including in the mix with a repeat dose of her effort two back.

RACE 2

AMAZING CHOICE (2) – Two recent runs have been better than most and should be good enough to win this maiden.
SUN FORMATION (1) – Ex-Gerald Ryan-trained and was placed on six occasions from 10 starts. Trials not too eye-catching of late but has form good enough to go close.
BENCOOLEN (3) – Has shown a bit more than most in this line-up and looks an obvious one for the multiples for an in-form trainer.
BEST BAY (9) – She is the best of the rest for making the frame.

RACE 3

SILENT FORCE (1) – The race last time wasn't run to suit him ideally when they went 25.09 for the opening sectional but boxed on well for seventh. This field is full of on-pace runners and the tempo of the race will suit him well.
WONDERFUL KNIGHT (3) – An in-form frontrunner who can once again run well off his current mark.
BEAUTIFUL DAY (4) – Both wins have been on the synthetics over 1200m and turf can pose another test for this Jerome Tan-trained 4yo but is in good order and that counts for something in this race.
ANCIENT WARRIOR (6) – This return to the turf after three runs on the Polytrack is a plus and he stays further.

RACE 4

RAPIDASH (4) – Forget last start when he had no luck from an inside draw. Finds conditions to suit in this affair and will take beating with the right breaks. Respect.
CAUSE TO FLY (1) – Hasn't been far from the mark in two career outings. Will appreciate the in-form apprentice Simon Kok Wei Hoong jumping on board and is open to improvement. So keep safe.
SOLID CASH (3) – Has been struggling to produce best in recent outings but has the ability to win a race of this nature. Must be considered on best efforts.
GLAMOROUS (2) – Yet to break through but is never far from the mark. Drawn to do no work so is worth including for the minor end.

RACE 5

YULONG XIONG HU (1) – Leslie Khoo's horses are beginning to find their form once again and last time out this fellow ran an eye-catching sixth in a much stronger race. The excellent Simon Kok Wei Hoong takes the ride and looks well treated only one point higher than his last win.
CARIBBEAN LADY (8) – A course and distance in April off a seven-point lower mark when defeating Foresto. Conditions suit her well and she is well placed to run very well.
BRACED (10) – Has run some nice races in defeat and this return to the Polytrack is a plus too. Player.
FORESTO (5) – Second in latest trial. Michael Rodd takes the ride and he should make his presence felt.

RACE 6

MAKE U FAMOUS (8) – Would deserve to win a small race and this could be it at start 23.
THOTH WARRIOR (2) – Consistent of late and is a leading contender in a very weak race for the grade. Go very close.
PARKER (10) – Eased a point for a sound fifth last time out and has plenty of form at this level, which makes him one to include.
BRING ME JOY (11) – More than capable of getting involved in the business end of this contest judged on the pick of his form.

RACE 7

MO ALMIGHTY (4) – Fourth in the Group 1 Singapore Guineas last time out and that is very strong form indeed. He hasn't always been one to back up a good effort with another and he has changed stables now to Jerome Tan. The blinkers have been removed and if he runs to his best form, he should go very close. Worth taking a chance with here.
BUSHIDO (10) – Had a well-documented gelding operation prior to breaking his maiden tag last start. He is now going up in trip by a furlong and would be the type to continue progressing.
ACROBAT (6) – An extremely willing gelding who wanted to win last time when sticking his neck out for victory under the excellent Raquel Clark. Ben Thompson now takes over and he can go close for an in-form trainer.
QUADCOPTER (7) – Showed something like his old sparkle when runner-up last time out behind Axel. He has plenty of ability and hopefully he can now string a few good runs together.

RACE 8

LIM'S BLAST (6) – Showed significant improvement second-up. Well drawn to get the right run and gets in well at the weights with Simon Kok Wei Hoong's claim. Will take beating.
LAI HENG HENG (11) – Has been tending to mix form but has been trending towards a suitable handicap mark. Will race on speed and is capable of giving a sight.
TOOSBIES (5) – Won in dominant fashion last start. This assignment is tougher but must be respected with a repeat dose. Major player.
MAN OF MYSTERY (2) – Hard to knock on recent efforts. Will appreciate the four-kilo claim from Mohammad Nizar, so keep safe. In the mix.

RACE 9

ARARAT LADY (3) – Consistent mare who is well credentialled for this affair. Well drawn to perform and is still open to improvement. Will take beating.
LIM'S SHOT (1) – Showed improvement last start when getting back into Class 4. Isn't ideally drawn but is worth thought on best efforts. Major player.
SACRED GURU (6) – Bounced back to form last start. Awkwardly drawn but is capable of contesting the business end with the right breaks. In the mix.
I AM THE ONE (7) – On debut in Singapore. Brings respectable credentials to this affair and has trialled well. Monitor market and parade.
