1st Pick: FROM THE NAVY (2) Was a winner in this grade late last year and has run some nice races since then, notably a nice third behind Be You three starts ago in Novice grade.
2nd Pick: FAST AND FEARLESS (6) He is a three-time winner at Kranji and his last win was well earned beating a handy field. Looks well placed by James Peters and can win again here.
3rd Pick: SUPER TALENT (7) This horse ran a nice second last start in the same grade having to cover ground most of the journey. With luck, he can go one place better here.
4th Pick: EASTIGER (1) Has been struggling to perform in Class 4 as of late. Works his way back into Class 5 and was a winner in December when last contesting the same grade.


1st Pick: KING ALBERT PARK (5) Raced wide on debut but still stuck on for a close-up third. Has made further headway since. Top pick in this despite the ordinary gate.
2nd Pick: KING ARTHUR (13) First Emergency but the one with the best track record so far. Handles both turf and Polytrack. If he gets in, he will be a leading chance in this even from the awkward alley.
3rd Pick: ROCKETSHIP (11) Scored an impressive barrier trial win at his second attempt, albeit in slow time. Looks ready and fit enough to make an impression on debut.
4th Pick: ILLUSTRIOUS (4) Young horse who is still learning about racing but showed some improvement at second start. Place claims.


1st Pick: MAN OF MYSTERY (2) On the quick back-up from last weekend where he ran a creditable third. Well performed at his last three starts and should handle the back-up.
2nd Pick: KISS YOUR SONG (5) Proven galloper at this distance. His form can be mixed at times but in this grade, he is very competitive and warrants respect.
3rd Pick: SNIP (3) First-up this week and looks fit having a couple of trials leading into this. Hasn't raced since January but has good form behind proven horses.
4th Pick: SUPER SMART (7) Ran a nice second last start behind Wealth Elite. He is a course and distance winner at Kranji and has won in Class 4 before.


1st Pick: FORT MUSTANG (2) Although he is still a maiden in Singapore, he has been consistent without winning. In a strong stable who has a good record in these class events.
2nd Pick: LIM'S RHYTHM (6) A nice win last start coming from midfield and won in good style. Can continue on his winning ways here.
3rd Pick: MARCUS ANTONIUS (7) Broke through at his last start to win his maiden and proved the distance was not a problem. In a leading stable and must be respected.
4th Pick: BLACK TAIPAN (4) Before last start, he was struggling to perform over shorter distances. Ran a solid race last start to finish third beaten just under a length and could surprise here.


1st Pick: BUURAQ (1) Has some very good course and distance form to his name and arrives here in good order for a new stable. A big run can be expected.
2nd Pick: STRONG N SMART (9) Finished off powerfully in a hot Novice event last time out to win for the first time. He has trialled well for a win since and can give a bold sight again with a light weight.
3rd Pick: VALOROUS (2) Runner-up to Galaxy Star last time out and if in the same vein of form, he can place again off a point higher mark.
4th Pick: GALAXY STAR (7) Up five points for winning last time out and on the pick of his form, he can go well off the new mark.


1st Pick: OUR SECRET WEAPON (3) Finally delivered when least expected. Always showed ability. No world beater but can string up a second consecutive win at this level.
2nd Pick: ARION PASSION (1) Tried to make all last time but was run down in the concluding stages. May well go for same tactics from barrier one. Go close.
3rd Pick: EXTRA WIN (2) Resuming. Form prior to break was decent. Blinkers off. Not a bad mare in this company and warrants consideration first-up, especially from the handy gate.
4th Pick: ATLANTEAN (9) Returned to winning ways last start but this is tougher. Still worth considering for a place.


1st Pick: VOLUNTAD (5) Making slow headway. Won't be long before he strikes.
2nd Pick: ANPANMAN (3) Doesn't win out of turn. Drops back to winning distance (scored only win on 1200m but on Polytrack) and should give a better account of himself.
3rd Pick: LAI MAK MAK (2) Has been making ground at recent runs. Well drawn. Not unlikely to see him in the box-seat and one of those to pounce upon straightening. Visors replaced with blinkers. Worth a shot.
4th Pick: RICH FORTUNE (12) Not getting any younger but showed he still had an engine at his last outing when a second to Sun Elizabeth. Best form on Polytrack but he lost no marks on grass. Not the worst here.


1st Pick: SOLO SUN (4) A chance can be taken with this Desmond Koh-trained gelding. Now three points lower than his last win, he has the assistance of Vlad Duric once again and he could be the value play in this.
2nd Pick: SATURNO SPRING (2) Has been racing in great form and comes here on the back of a couple of nice wins. Still unexposed under these conditions and shapes like he has more to give.
3rd Pick: TANGIBLE (5) Runner-up to Saturno Spring last time out and was working well to the line. Every chance here off a point higher.
4th Pick: SUPERLATIVE (12) Unraced on this surface and has a light weight here on the back of a solid run-in defeat.


1st Pick: ETWAS NEUES (1) Has been very consistent in Class 5 to-date. Already a two-time winner over 1700m on the Polytrack surface in Class 5.
2nd Pick: POROSHIRI (7) Broke through for a long-awaited win last start. Can do a few things wrong in his races which has proved costly but last win was strong.
3rd Pick: RUNMINDERBINDERRUN (3) Hasn't been beaten far out at his last few outings. Ran a nice third last start and should be competitive here.
4th Pick: SUN CONQUEROR (8) Always competitive in class 5 company. Has previously won over this distance and surface. Didn't have much luck last start.


1st Pick: QUARTER BACK (6) The Savvy Command race is clearly the form race to focus on and possibly the run of the race that day was Quarter Back. Held up at about the 250m marker, he ran home strongly for second and with a clearer passage could perhaps have got a lot closer to the winner. Now on his last winning mark, he is a big player here.
2nd Pick: SAVVY COMMAND (3) In great form and has conditions to suit here again. Has more to do at the weights with the selection but can once again run a big race.
3rd Pick: GOLD STAR (7) Third last time out behind Savvy Command and Quarter Back and looks another rock-solid place chance for a bang in-form stable.
4th Pick: HEARTENING FLYER (5) Bitterly disappointing last time out when down the field behind stablemate Tiger Roar. Has a little bit to prove now but can bounce back and it's too early to write him off.


1st Pick: TEARDROPS (6) A filly with plenty of speed and might prove too good for a few of these as she is very unexposed.
2nd Pick: MASTER RYKER (1) Now down in grade having run some okay races in better company. This is easier and can go well with Jerlyn Seow booked.
3rd Pick: AFTERMATH (2) Now racing on the Polytrack and the booking of Vlad Duric once again is very interesting.
4th Pick: AL GREEN (7) Has been well handicapped for a while now and the latest run was good. Place chance.
