Andrew Frost gives his take on the Singapore Cup; Cruz and Freedman preview their chances

Local Kranji formster Andrew Frost provided his thoughts on Friday’s Singapore Guineas card (where his best bet of the day, plus Guineas tip both came home victorious) in advance of Sunday’s monstrous event with the KrisFlyer International Sprint and Singapore Airlines International Cup.  Once again, the videos courtesy of ThoroughMedia Solutions, hosted by Simon Burgess.

Michael Freedman had Al Quoz Sprint (G2) third Better Be The One primed to go in Dubai, and looks to go better against Dubai Golden Shaheen (G1) winner Rocket Man in the KrisFlyer Sprint.

Tony Cruz prepares California Memory, the up-and-comer flying at the end of the Audemars Piguet Queen Elizabeth II Cup (G1), and discusses some of the similarities between this event and his second last time out.

  1. IMO, Presvis is still the form horse coming into this year’s Singapore Airlines International Cup. Presvis was brilliant in every start in Dubai, culminating in that big win against a stellar field in this year’s G1 Dubai Duty Free. A race Presvis had been chasing for 3 years. He didn’t run as well as connection’s had hoped recently in Hong Kong. But in fairness, Luca Cumani chose to race Presvis in the G1 Champions Mile over 8f instead of the Audemars Piguet Q.E.II Cup over 10f. The latter being a race Presvis won in 2009. This was done because Luca Cumani wanted Ryan Moore to ride Presvis in Hong Kong. The weekend of the Champions Mile was the only time Moore would be available because of commitments to ride in the English 2000 and 1000 Guineas the same weekend as the Audemars Piguet Q.E.II Cup. Presvis is obviously a much better horse over a 10f trip than he is over a mile. He was 2nd in Singapore in this race in 2009. Beaten just a whisker by Gloria De Campeao. Presvis was 5th in Singapore in 2010 behind Lizard’s Desire, but encountered some traffic issues late in that race. Plus, I believe Presvis’s form heading into this year’s race is a ton better than it was when went to Singapore in 2010. If Richard Hughes can get Presvis to respond to him the way Ryan Moore does? Difficult horse to beat in this year’s Cup. JMO.
