RACE 1

PRINCE PEGASUS (11) – Was awfully unlucky last start. Drawn to get a better run in this affair and will take beating with a repeat dose. Must be respected.
TURF BEAUTY (5) – Broke maiden status in a dominant display last start. This assignment is tougher but must be considered as a major player.
HERO STAR (7) – Has been racing well without winning. Will be on speed and is capable of giving a sight. So don't ignore.
DECRETO (1) – Has been struggling to win but is capable of bouncing back to winning form in this affair with the drop in class. Keep safe.

RACE 2

CHER (3) – Showed improvement last start when closing strongly over 1400m. Will relish stepping up in trip further. So expect bold showing.
MONTOYA (4) – Ran a big race at huge odds last  start. Remains at the 1600m and must be respected with a repeat dose. Major player.
SHANGANI (8) – Has been racing well without winning. Hard to catch but is worth including on best efforts. Don't ignore.
MR ROCKWELL (5) – Performed below expectation last start but is now third-up, so don't dismiss. In the mix.

RACE 3

TERRIFIC (4) – Forgive last start when he got smashed shortly after the gates opened. Prior to that, he ran on well late first-up. Back to Class 4 here and Benny Woodworth stays on  board. Worth respecting.
IMPERIUM (1) – Resuming. Not seen at the races since February but finds a nice race to run in first-up. Should be hard to beat.
BEJEWELLED (7) – Drawn wide but goes forward. Was supported in betting last time and can improve with luck early.
BARTIMAEUS (5) – Placed last time behind Surpass Natural (unbeaten). Michael Rodd goes on here and he looks to be in good form at trackwork this week. Respect.

RACE 4

SPORTSCASTER (4) – Drawn 4 here and the booking to Vlad Duric looks a huge positive. Should roll forward, be on the pace and should be hard to beat.
FIGHT TO VICTORY (2) – Is on debut in Class 5. 1700m looks a slight query but has solid Restricted Maiden form and will measure up very well in this class. Top chance.
YULONG HONOR (1) – Back from recent racing in Class 4 and is on the quick back-up. Very fit and is worth including among the better chances.
KEEP WINNING (5) – Blinkers go on here. Nice effort when third to in-form Pakatan Warrior last time and is a horse capable of reeling off good sectionals when in the right mood.

RACE 5

STREET PARTY (6) – Unfortunately draws barrier 12 here but was great first-up when just knocking up late to finish 0.3L second behind Green Star. With a good ride from Michael Rodd he can finish over the top of these.
GREEN STAR (3) – Solid win last time and if he gets the mile, can win again. Little query about him at the distance.
SUPERNOVA (2) – Back to Class 4 where he should be more competitive. Apprentice jockey Zyrul Nor Azman knows the horse well. Expect him to improve here.
CROWN GIFT (1) – Is hard to line up. Hasn't shown much in Class 3 over shorter trips but back up to a mile now in Class 4 looks for a better run.

RACE 6

DEE MAK MAK (2) – Got too far back last start and was never in the race. With the lack of pace here, can sail to the front or be in the first three and run an improved race.
SOLITARE (4) – Is an 11-year-old now but on his better form he could blow this field away. Not much opposition here, keep safe.
CIZEN BOSS (1) – Improved effort last time when third in an Open Maiden 1200m. Draws nicely and can win here at his Class 5 debut, strong chance.
GOLDEN COIN (5) – Drawn to go forward from barrier 1. Ran second in a weak Class 5 last start but has at least got some solid recent form.

RACE 7

MURAAHIB (4) – Has been good in two runs since arriving. Drawn to get the perfect run and is ready to win third-up. So must be respected.
ELITE CONQUEST (2) – Has been knocking on the door in recent efforts. Changed stables since his last run, so worth keeping safe.
SUPER SMART (6) – Talented type who is still relatively lightly raced. Well drawn to perform, so expect bold showing.
ARARAT LADY (11) – Worth forgiving last start. Well suited third-up and with the lightweight, must be considered.

RACE 8

DRONE (8) – Has been trending towards the right handicap rating and finds a very suitable assignment. Knockout chance with the right breaks.
HUGO (3) – Hard to knock on recent efforts. Has been very effective on the Polytrack surface and finds conditions to suit yet again. Major player.
SACRED DON (1) – Has been racing well. Drawn to get the right run, so must be considered yet again. In the mix.
SIAM ROYAL ORCHID (7) – Returns from a run in the Singapore Guineas. Has trialled well leading into this affair, so monitor parade.

RACE 9

SURPASS NATURAL (4) – Unbeaten sprinter building a fantastic record. Nice trial since his latest run and despite facing his biggest test here in Class 3, he looks more than capable of making the jump.
SUPER DYNASTY (1) – Has won a trial in the lead-up to this. Not seen since contesting the Singapore Derby but is capable of sprinting well first-up.
SIR ISAAC (2) – Good last-start run in what looks the lead-up form race (won by Nova Vocal). Simon Kok Wei Hoong rides here and he should appreciate the 2kg claim.
SACRED MAGIC (11) – Has no weight here and is a horse with talent on his day. Can finish hard in this, must be kept safe.

RACE 10

THOMAS DE LAGO (6) – Has been tending to mix form but is capable of bouncing back in this affair from the good alley with Vlad Duric on board. Will take beating.
LIM'S ZOOM (7) – Returns first-up after almost a year off the scene. Has had three trials leading in this affair, so monitor parade and market.
EFFORTLESS (3) – Has been racing well without winning. Isn't ideally drawn but is a versatile customer, so keep safe.
SUPER SIX (2) – Will appreciate the drop in grade and is trending towards another win. Will appreciate the claim from Simon Kok Wei Hoong. So, don't ignore.
