Upcoming runners 18 and 20 May 2018

Friday 18 May 2018

Race 3: Class 4 Non Premier - 1200m

Horse no: 4
Time: 7.20 PM
Jockey: C GRYLLS (56.5 kg)

Vocalised (USA) x Tense (IRE) 3yo gelding. He looks great; is fit and well and in good condition. He has blinkers on for the first time which will help him concentrate a bit more. Barrier 11 is a bit of an awkward draw, but if he begins well he should have enough gate speed to put himself into a decent spot. He has ability and will hopefully be right in the finish.


Race 5: Class 3 - 1400m

Horse no: 11
Time: 8.20 PM
Jockey: A MUNRO (51.5 kg)

Showcasing (GB) x Zafonique (NZ) 3yo gelding. He's come through his barrier trial well and has been working nicely during in the week. He gets a nice light weight of 51.5 kg and has drawn a little better in barrier 5 this time around. On paper it looks to be a strong race with some good speed; if he can begin nicely and try closer to the pace just behind the main speed hopefully he can finish off strongly.


Race 8: Class 3 - 1400m

Horse no: 7
Time: 9.50 PM
Jockey: O PLACAIS (53.5 kg)

Dragon Pulse (IRE) x Emsiyah (USA) 4yo gelding. He's come through his first-up run well and has galloped nicely earlier in the week. There looks to be a bit of speed in the race but he's drawn well in barrier 4 to be in the box seat just behind the leaders. The step up to 1400m on the turf should suit him and we're hoping he finishes off well.


Sunday 20 May 2018

Race 6: Kranji Stakes D - 1600m
Horse no: 6
Time: 3.45 PM
Jockey: M RODD (56.5 kg)

Mastercraftsman (IRE) x Ruby Rouge (NZ) 4yo gelding. He's come through his last run well and is nice and fit. Barrier 11 makes things a little awkward; he'll have to be ridden back quietly. He'll need a bit of luck in running but he's racing well and seems to prefer the polytrack surface; hopefully he'll put in a good run.


Race 8: Kranji Stakes B - 1100m

Horse no: 1
Time: 4.50 PM
Jockey: V DURIC (59.5 kg)

Battle Paint (USA) x Daystar (NZ) 4yo gelding. He seems in good order and had a good barrier trial last week. He's drawn barrier 13, which will make things tricky - it's a short course sprint with good speed and there are a few horses who like to go forward. With a bit of luck he can get across and into a good spot. The race is perfect for him first-up and based on his trial last week he should be involved in the finish.
