1400m – Turf

1 Foresto Resumes off a 162-day break and has trialled on three occasions in preparation for his first-up assignment. Goes well in Class 4 but would need to see market support.
2 Gold City Drops back into Class 4 after a closing effort into third in a Class 3 mile race 142 days ago. Definitely capable in a race of this nature and respect.
3 Lord Of Cloud Races first-up for a new trainer here, so an improved effort isn’t out of the question, and he was pushed out to win a recent trial. Keep safe as more than capable on best form. 
4 Afalonhro Quality five-year-old who races second-up after a get back, run on first-up effort into fifth. Enters this race with good form and is one of the key chances.
5 Thunder Raced wide throughout first-up over an unsuitable 1200m, weakening to 11th. Will be better off over 1400m and on prior form, looks capable of surprising.
6 Yulong Jazz Former Irish galloper who arrives in Singapore a one-time winner from eight. May need the run and the market will be telling.
7 Kharisma Talented four-year-old who races second-up after a facile first-up win 21 days ago. Rises to Class 4, which should prove more competitive, but he appears to have more up his sleeve and is a top winning chance.
8 Qiji Diamond Had betting support first-up over 1200m but the rider’s saddle slipped. Open to improvement and looks a chance in a race like this.
9 Sun Formation


Can generally be slow out of the stalls, which sees him settle well-back in-running. Resumes after a win over this distance in Class 5 154 days ago and this looks tougher.
10 Diamond Mine Scored his second career win when first-up over 1200m 21 days ago. Albeit it in Class 5, he is only a four-year-old and could still have more to come. Light-weight chance. 
11 Born To Win Returns to a preferred track and distance where his better form lies and he did not disgrace himself first-up, getting well back in the run but closing off the second fastest in the race into seventh. Outsider chance.
12 Bebop Hard to make a case for in this type of race and chances look better once dropping to Class 5.
13 Golden Thunder Flew home into third over 1000m 36 days ago, but was unwanted in the market that day. Mixes his form and is hard to catch.
14 My Friends Generally begins fast out of the stalls but would need a big improvement to take this out. Others are preferred.
15 Mr Exchequer Resumes over 1400m, which, on paper, reads far too short of his best trip, and he may need the run first-up. Betting market is best guide.
16 Dazzle Gold Will be better suited second-up over 1400m but would need to improve on recent runs. Better form lies on the Polytrack too.
