Singapore Horse Racing: Friday Night Review

Another great night of racing at Singapore Turf Club tonight.

RACE 1: CLASS 5 (1) - 1000M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 18:50 PRIZE MONEY: S$35000

This is a tough one to start proceedings with, Ocean Master and Great Seven look the best of an average lot, Great Seven will probably lead and Ocean Master will be finishing hard late, if you need one for the Trifecta Best Jade is the only other horse with any real claims here.

RACE 2: RESTRICTED MAIDEN (2 AND 3 YEAR OLD) (WEIGHT FOR AGE) - 1400M COURSE C (LC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 19:20 PRIZE MONEY: S$75000

New trainer KY Yong gets his chance to win his first race in Singapore with Crown Gift. Crown Gift was a solid third to speedy Larneuk bred Filibuster and on that run he looks a special in this race. Super Power has been racing well and represents the main danger here, for the trifecta Zulu Warrior should be finishing fast and is from the in-from Stephen Gray Stable.

RACE 3: OPEN BENCHMARK 67 - 1800M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 19:50 PRIZE MONEY: S$60000

The superbly bred Gold Faith (DARK ANGEL (IRE)/LIVADREAM (IRE)) is a quality horse and the distance is not an issue for him, he was disappointing in the G3 race last start but drops in grade and distance here he has a real chance at good odds. Black Swan is the one to beat, he won well last outing and has been freshened up for this, Turquoise King drops in grade here and should be in the placings. RACE 4: OPEN MAIDEN (WEIGHT FOR AGE) - 1200M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 20:20 PRIZE MONEY: S$35000

Waitahanui has been running some great trials but his draw in this is atrocious, Amiability is dropping in distance but he may just pinch this, 1600 last time out was too far but the 1200 should see him have enough to feature in the finish, for the trifecta Grand Canyon, he is unpredictable but he has some chance.

RACE 5: CLASS 5 (2) - 1000M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 20:50 PRIZE MONEY: S$35000

This is another tough race Obsticles Free should jump and lead and may have enough left in the tank to win, Invincible Man should be thereabouts at the finish and for the trifecta Top Note.

RACE 6: CLASS 4 - 1200M COURSE C (LC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 21:20 PRIZE MONEY: S$60000

Have to stick with the impressive Filibuster form here and go with Wijaya, Wijaya will be improved from that run and is our best bet of the night. Golden Kingdom and Northern Prince for the minors. RACE 7: KRANJI STAKES D (SET WEIGHTS) - 1800M COURSE C (LC) (TURF TRACK) TIME: 21:50 PRIZE MONEY: S$38000

Lims Ripple finished fast last time out and the extra furlong will suit, El Don is a good quality horse and may well put pressure on Lims Ripple, Cheetah King should fill the minors.

RACE 8: OPEN BENCHMARK 67 - 1200M (POLYTRACK) TIME: 22:20 PRIZE MONEY: S$60000

Deimos should easily take this on current form, En Civil and Kolombia for the placings.

REWARD Incentive Scheme

Under the scheme, an incentive will be paid to Owner of a Singapore-based horse in the form of a "credit rebate" of $900 per horse (WEF 1 April 2009), when his horse meets the qualifying criteria. The "credit rebate" amount due to the Owner will be used to offset against his horse's monthly training bill and the Owner will only be billed the balance by his Trainer. This scheme is to help lower the cost of keeping horses in Singapore.
