Singapore Kranji Race Preview – Sunday, 13th August 2023

August 11, 2023 at 5:04:14 AM

Singapore racing best bets, race analysis looking at the full Singapore card Sunday, 13th August with selections & information on all the contenders.


FIRST BOWL – Not seen in this grade since 2021 where he won over this same course and distance. Stable are very good at getting them to score when they reach this grade. Big player here.

NO MORE DELAY – He was huge after blowing the start and clipping heels. Rocketed home into fifth and if he breaks cleanly is more than capable of scoring here.

THE BROTHERHOOD – On the quick backup after a lack luster performance where he missed the jump behind Elliot Ness last Sunday. Willing to give another chance in this lineup.

LIM'S WISH – First up since November last year where he finished third in similar conditions. Should have plenty of fitness with three trials under his belt for this assignment.


SMART ONE – Drops back to Open Maiden after being beaten two lengths to Rambo at class four grade. That is a massive class drop and he will look a big danger on turning for the judge. Clyde Leck to take the steer.

GOLD GOVERNER – Was beaten as a very short priced favorite two starts ago before a much-improved run in Novice grade. Brings good form lines into this event. Duric a key booking from inside gate.

RODA ROBOT – Lines up for start number ten on the quick backup after going down three lengths to Golden Brown. Had to burn petrol early from the wide draw and looks like he has come through that run well.

SIRBRING COLT – Was well supported in betting at a big price last start but failed to fire a shot. Must keep an eye on him after that betting move over his next few runs.


WAR WARRIOR – Big return to form last start pinging to the front from the gates. His best runs have been when he can find the front and if he can do that here he holds strong claims.

OUTFIT – Strong performance to win last start carrying the 58.5kgs. Strong form lines coming out of that race with Sirius who finished runner up claiming his first win last weekend. Needs luck from wide gate.

TANTHEMAN – Hasn't been able to record a win in nine starts at both Restricted and Maiden grade so far. Connections trying their hand at class five for the first time and watch for any betting support.

BEN WADE – Goes very well for the stable apprentice R.Azhar who scored aboard this gelding last start after a few months on the sidelines. Doesn't usually string two wins together but can finish in the money.


CHARMINTON – Strong second behind Bestseller last start to go down 1.3 lengths. That form looks really good for this and with the two kg claim on top getting him to 53.5 again, he looks a big chance.

TEARDROPS – Inside gate for this mare once again who rarely runs a bad race. Hasn't run out of the top three for quite a while so hard to overlook as a top three hope here again.

MAKIN – Makes Singapore debut this weekend, may need the run but Nunes on is confidence in itself, could surprise.

CHAVAL MAGNIFIQUE – Gets in with 49kg after the apprentice claim here and has had genuine excuses the last couple of start being caught wide and copping checks. Would need to be good to win but any luck would see him running top four on his day.


SUN POWER – Has trialled in between runs and caught the eye on that occasion. Draws the ace and gets Nunes this weekend, wouldn't shock to see him be positive and control it. Respect.

THUNDER – Copped interference in his return run back to class 5, genuine excuses. Good chance to bounce back this weekend under Vlas Duric who was on board for his trial in between runs.

KHAO MANEE – Back to an ideal trip of a mile this weekend. Turf underfoot would have been more ideal for this son of Remind, but the distance should give plenty of each way confidence.

CENTURION – Has faced easier opposition and better gate draws in recent starts but gets the ideal track and trip to run a good race here. Wide draw should see him go back to the end of the field and begin his looping run at the 600m mark, each way prospect.


KNIGHT LOVE – Has one of the strongest course and distance stats in this field that reads (9:3-0-1). He has the ability, but if he can't improve here it's going to be tough in the future for him. Good draw and strong jockey on.

DECRETO – Not the worst performance behind Outfit where he hit the line for a minor placing after being caught wide throughout. It's been some time since his last win but can atone here.

WEDNESDAY – Has moved from the Logan stable to the care of Daniel Meagher since his most recent run. Looked sharp in a trial last week but tread carefully for this one-time winner.

BIZAR WINS – Has been rather disappointing since his last victory four runs ago. Does hold a good record over these sprint trips on this surface. One for the exotics.


LIM'S STRAIGHT – Gets a decent gate advantage over a few of his major opposition in this race. Has been super impressive since his return and well managed by Daniel Meagher, winning chance.

KNIPPENBERG – Carries the top weight in this weekends event which is a slight concern. Despite the big weight and wide gate, his class should take him a very long way in this event with Duric booked to ride.

GALAXY BAR – Hasn't raced since his open maiden victory on the 2nd of July but has trialled since. Gets a super light weight for this weekend's assignment against proven company, each way hope.

TRIBUTO – Worked well during the week and a solid performance by him wouldn't shock. Louis Beuzelin knows this horse well and can hopefully get the best out of him.


DAVID'S SLING – Has done his best racing over this course and distance in the past with a record of (10:2-0-1). His last win in January was off a rating of 36 and comes here carrying a much lighter weight of 52.5kgs. Draws well in barrier one and Wong aboard.

WINNING POWER – Finds himself in a poor-quality race this weekend. He will be looking to improve off his last start where he was caught wide and if you go off his win two starts back he looks a key player.

RICH FORTUNE – Hasn't been beaten far since his most recent victory four runs ago. Likes to get back and finish strongly and he should get good early speed in this event.

CONFLAGRANCE – Had to settle a bit further back than anticipated from the wide draw but caught the eye hitting the line late. Market support is the best guide with him.


FIREWORKS – Course and distance specialists how comes here as the one to beat. Didn't have the best of luck in the straight last start but his best will see him take this out.

DANCING TYCOON – Yet to record a win since dropping to class five three starts ago. Hasn't been beaten far in those runs and boxed on solidly last start in similar conditions.

STAR VICTORY – Was supported in the market last start finishing fourth beaten 1.6 lengths. Copped a bump on jumping but all in all was a good performance. Should settle up off the speed. Each way chance.

BLUEJAY – Makes his debut in class five this week with some mixed performances since his Restricted Maiden win back in February of this year. Must be respected on the class drop.


GENERAL COMMAND – Has his first start for the new stable having won four from seven already and never missing the top three. Nunes sticks and from a middle alley, he's the one to beat.

SILENT IS GOLD – Racing well enough at the moment and returns from G3 company. Shafrizal's claim will see him carry 52.5 and this should see him in the finish with the right run.

LUCKY JINSHA – Draws the ace alley here which will be ideal for him to find his favourite role in front. Faded away last start quite quickly, but the return to poly should see him feel more at home, top three contender.

ILLUSTRIOUS – Trialled up in fast time with fellow competitor General Command who has beaten him on race day in the past. Going to need to jump well from the wide gate to find a forward position, hopefully won't cop too much pressure as we know this is his downfall if any, keep safe.


COSMIC DANCER – Having first start for new stable after a very successful start to 2023. Draws the ideal gate in barrier 1 and has a 3kg claimer on board. Will be leading at the turn and could be hard to catch, respect.

JANUARY – Got crowded at the critical stage of the race last start and went down a narrow margin to Sabah Ace. Racing well enough to win this, already a group 3 winner at the distance.

FIGHT ON – Lightweight hope this weekend after winning a Novice over the same trip with no favours in the race whatsoever. He was wide, a long way back and looked no chance but made up enormous amounts of ground to win. Has ability, respect.

KING ZOUSTAR – Such a consistent galloper but looks to be right at his mark in the bottom of class 3. Will find this difficult to win but looks a top four hope every day of the week.


ASIF – Singapore debut for NSW galloper who was initially with Chris Waller. Two trials in the country have been solid, Nunes stays on for the race day start, respect.

FADABOY – Jamil sticks on this running claiming 4kg again which will see him have a featherweight once again. Last two starts have been super and the jump out to 1100m should only improve his chances to perform here.

OPUNAKE – Won immediately heading up to class 4 and confirmed that he is in great condition at the moment. Draws barrier 2 so expect him to roll forward from there and control from the front again, place hope.

ENTERTAINER – Will appreciate the drop to 57kg here with the claiming rider on board. Back to class 4 should see him being super competitive this weekend, each way.
