With four meetings in just eight days, Singapore racegoers have certainly had their Chinese New Year fill and round off the celebrations with eight solid races today at Kranji.
And while we like the aptly named Smart Investment in Race 1, two Kranji Stakes B races later in the card will keep the punters interested.
Race 5 on the card – the first leg of the Jackpot- is a KSB 1600m on the turf.
And, with the early favourite Time Lord likely to be withdrawn a er returning a roarer last Friday, the smart Heliosphere looks hard to beat.
This four-year-old entire has hit the ground running in Singapore with two wins and a placing from his three starts.
With that form, and with 1.5kg less to carry, Heliosphere should be more than able to handle this company.
Claudia’s Beauty may be his biggest danger, as this mare will find this easier than her Gold Cup campaign and is fresh enough to let punters think that 1600m is an ideal distance for her.
