2000m – Turf

1 Dicton Third emergency for the Gold Cup who has been racing consistently and worked home strongly last two starts suggesting a win is near. Chances will improve on a rain affected track.
2 Yulong Edition Fourth emergency for the Gold Cup who scored back to back wins over 1600m before being beaten over 1800m. Finds a race with not much pace and he could prove hard to catch.
3 King’s Speech Winner over 1800m at Class 3 level in June. Has mixed his form since. Looked disappointing last start and needs to improve.
4 Song To The Moon Old timer with the best form behind him and has not won a race for 497 days. Hard to recommend here.
5 Wind Trail Has always shown ability and bounced back with a solid win last start over 2000m at Class 4 level. Rises in class here but can measure up.
6 Irving Lipschitz Promising young galloper who finished powerfully last start over 1800m. Prior to that was placed second over 2000m at Class 4 level. Well placed to go close.
7 Buddy Buddy Showed improvement last start when he ran 4th over 1400m. Now rises to 2000m. Faces a tough task and may need more time.
8 Majestic Empress Inconsistent mare who has been mixing her form and proving hard to follow. Place chance only.
9 Shahbaa Form has been well down and needs a major improvement to feature.
10 Mr Dujardin Has proven costly to supporters being the beaten favourite three times from his last five starts. Fair effort last start when 4th and can surprise for the top four.
11 Larry Has been rattling home in slick sectional times and looks a knockout chance to win. Only problem for him is the apparent lack of early speed in the race.
12 O’What A Feeling Has not won a race for 618 days and has shown little last few runs. Hard to recommend.
13 Middle Kingdom Yet to win a race in Singapore but ran home powerfully last start for a solid 2nd. Can be placed at value.
14 The Nutter Winner over 1600m in June but has struggled since then and this appears too tough.
15 Attention Placed in an open maiden last start and takes a huge rise in class. Not here.
