Fortuna has four runners in Singapore Saturday 19th June


Sportscaster contests the Class 5 1100 on the Polytrack (race one at 4 pm New Zealand time) – preparing to race over a mile in two weeks time, this trip is bound to be too short for him and has a difficult draw to content with as well – Will be ridden by stable apprentice Jerlyn Seow claiming 4kgs – always runs a bold race but hard to have in this 1100 meter event

King Arthur is in the Restricted Maiden 1200 on the Turf (race two at 4:30 pm) – two seconds and a third from three starts to date in Singapore has stamped this son of I Am Invincible as a three-year-old of some quality, but  does face a difficult task here from the outside barrier, but he has shown before that he can fly home from the back of the field. Harry Kazim takes the ride – will need luck but certainly represents an each way chance here if he gets it

Here is what the Singapore Turf Club tipsters have to say about this race;

1st Pick: REIGNITE (2)

Has shown a fair degree of promise so far and could be the one to be with here.

2nd Pick: KING ARTHUR (1)

Placed at all three starts to-date and hasn’t run a bad race at all. Back in trip and that should suit with a good pace here.

3rd Pick: GOOD FIGHT (6)

Has run two nice races on the Polytrack and now switches to the turf on the back of a good trial.

4th Pick: SAND BOX (12)

One of three Ricardo Le Grange newcomers and on the balance of trial form, he might prove the pick.

Our Final Offer  also races in  the Restricted Maiden 1200 on the Turf (race two at 4:30pm) – Made his race debut in Singapore last week, missed the  jump somewhat and was taken very wide on the turn, finishing back in the field – this three-year-old can certainly gallop but he does have barrier manners issues – will be ridden this week by Louis Beuzelin – does need to get away well to be able to feature in this event, and if he does so can certainly feature – take on trust

Red Rover is in the Class 4 1200 on the Polytrack (race nine at 8pm New Zealand time) – this classy galloper fell into a deep hole with his form during 2020, but at his last start ran very well for a 3rd placing after previously winning a trial –  gets his chance here to show that that run was no fluke but has drawn barrier 11 in a field of 12 runners – Singapore Champion jockey  takes the mount – definitely needs luck here but look for him to go to the front from the wide draw and if he gets to the lead can certainly feature

Here is what the Singapore Turf Club tipsters have to say about this race

1st Pick: WATCH OUT BOSS (1)

Has trialled since his last-start second behind I Am Sacred who was too strong on that day. Remains in Class 4 and looks strong here.

2nd Pick: RED ROVER (2)

Wasn’t happy racing amongst other horses in the early stages of his previous start. Once he found room, he hit the line strongly.

3rd Pick: CHALAZA (6)

Won his first race in nearly three years last start. Has been a handy horse over the years and only rises 2kgs on last of his last win.

4th Pick: DR KARDO (7)

Improving horse here at Kranji. Ran a nice second on his debut and backed it up with a strong win at Open Maiden level. Big player in this.
