Kingsman To Rule At Kranji

The Mark Walker-trained runner was very good in his Singapore debut when winning a class 4 over this trip last start on the back of some strong form in New Zealand.
Kingsman placed in a Group 3 over 6 f at Ellerslie beaten under a length before a solid midfield finish in the Wellington Guineas prior to coming to Singapore.
This shapes up as a tougher task to what he took on last start but he certainly appears to have plenty of ability and if he runs up to his best form he will be too good for these once again.
From the inside draw with Vlad Duric to ride again, the four-year-old gelding is likely to settle off the leaders again in a race that appears to have a fair bit of tempo.
Kingsman certainly appears to do his best racing over the 6 f trip and despite winning just two from 12 starts he has placed a further five occasions and on weight adjusted ratings goes on top again today.
Sir Isaac returned in very good order with a win in a strong Kranji Stakes C on the Polytrack but has not been able to go on with it in three runs since.
Comes off a last start third behind Skywalk in a Class 3 over 5 f but never looked likely in that race beaten 4.2L and goes up to the 6 f today.
Has won between 1100m-1400m so the extra trip should not pose too many troubles and the Cliff Brown stable has been in terrific form of late.
From the wide draw expect Sir Isaac to find himself in the second half of the field but he is a very handy gelding and expect him to be making good ground late.
Will need to improve off his last couple to get the better of Kingsman but is more than capable of being right in the mix against these.
Elusive Emperor has come back in pretty good order this campaign and produced a strong effort to finish runner up to Super Fortune in the Kranji Stakes A over this C/D last time out.
This looks a slightly easier task for him today but he is up in the weights with 125lbs and no claim.
Still measures up pretty well on weight adjusted ratings and has a good record when third up previously winning two of his three starts.
Barend Vorster sticks with the six-year-old gelding and with three previous win over the 6 f and coming off strong form he is certainly worth including among the chances.
Webster rounds out the main chances on the back of a last start win in a Class 3 and has not claimed victory in three of his five career outings.
All three wins have come over the 6 f trip and only lightly raced the four-year-old gelding is open to further improvement and with some luck from the wide draw will be right in the mix.
Good Luck!
