King Louis could rule in Chair­man’s Tro­phy

The Citizen (KZN) - - Racing Express - Larry Fo­ley Sin­ga­pore

– While the un­der­card has plenty to offer and the Novice event in Race 6 looks a beauty, the first Weight-for Age Group race of the sea­son - the Chair­man’s Tro­phy - com­mands the ma­jor­ity of the at­ten­tion.

Obviously, Mr Clint, af­ter win­ning the Sin­ga­pore Gold Cup in

Novem­ber, head­lines the starstud­ded field and given he just missed in the Raf­fles Cup over 1600m, looks suited to win an­other big race and stamp his WFA form.

King Louis is also re­sum­ing af­ter a frus­trat­ing Gold Cup cam­paign and while this five-yearold doesn’t win out of turn, he is over­due, and a re­cent smart trial sug­gests he is ready to show some­thing over the 1600m.

The win­ning hopes don’t stop there and Countof­mon­techristo and the mare What’s New both have race fit­ness on their side and are proven at WFA con­di­tions with this 1600m ideal.

Else­where on the card Healthy Star will go very close in the fore-men­tioned Novice race over 1100m on the Poly­track, while Makkem Lad looks well-placed in

Race 2’s Class 4 Com­pany to win on abil­ity alone.

Best Bets: Makkem Lad, Race 2, Win; Mach, Race 8, Win; and What’s New, Race 9, value.

Jack­pot: Race 7: 1, 3 and 7; Race 8:1 and 6; Race 9: (1, 3, 4, 6 and 9 and Race 10: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7.
