Kranji Stakes A – Form Comments

1 Blue Swede Proven performer at this level with two wins in this class and three wins at the track & distance. Has also won three times when second-up and must be rated a big winning chance.
2 Best Tothelign Nice effort last start when he rattled home in the 4th fastest final 400m sectional time (23.37s) over 1400m in this grade, finishing 6th behind Preditor. Looks capable of testing these.
3 Twickenham Slow away and never looked likely last start but will be suited by the rise to 1600m, where he has won three times. With top Hong Kong jockey Zac Purton riding in great form, he looks a value chance.
4 Dance In The Wind Overlook last start and go on her previous consistent form with wins in easier grades. Raced over the distance and can improve.
5 Song To The Moon Has not won for 456 days but caught the eye flashing home last start over 1800m. He will need a fast early tempo to be finishing strongly.
6 Kirks Ryker Ran 3rd over this distance two starts ago in an easier grade race but gets in with a light weight and can surprise at value.
7 Dee Dee D’or Former Hong Kong galloper who showed a glimpse of his best form two starts ago when 2nd to Lim’s Regard over 2000m. Looks to be improving but may need it longer.
8 Mcgregor Has been racing without luck and looks suited by the rise to 1600m, where he has won three times already. Drawn well and capable of winning this.
9 Arhat Has not won for 334 days and recent runs in easier grades were just fair. Needs to regain his best form to feature.
10 Aotearoa Handy filly who looks perfectly placed with only 112lb on her back and despite never winning beyond 1400m, she appears a chance to score here.
11 Dicton Former French galloper who has failed at both Singapore starts. Will be suited by the rise in distance but may need more time.
12 Winning Cause First attempt at this grade but stormed home last start in a Kranji Stakes B race over 1400m. Has won over the track and distance and can be in the finish.
13 Could Be Pearls Lightweight chance who put the writing on the wall last start with a fast finishing 3rd over 1400m. Can play a part in the finish.
14 Easter Mate Failed last start in an easier grade race and despite the light weight, he appears to face a tough task.
