Saturday sees a 10-race afternoon and evening card at Seoul running from 14:50 to 21:00. Here are the previews:
Race 1: Class 6 (1000M) Allowance / KRW 24 Million
A competitive Class 6 event will kick us off on Saturday over the five furlongs. (6) JEONGSANG STAR looks one of the main chances after finishing second behind Prime Queen last time out only beaten 1.5L. The three-year-old sat behind the pacemakers and hit the line well. This looks no harder and she should get every chance with not too much speed drawn inside of her. (5) AN MOK HANG has had just the two career starts to date. The Exploit filly was one paced last time out when beaten four lengths behind Wind River. (2) DALLINEUN ACE is the most experienced galloper in the field with eleven starts under his belt. He will get the services of Kim Yong-Geun for the first time and is coming off successive placed performances. (8) GYEONGGUKJIMA finished second behind Geom Hyang last time out and can figure again.
|Selections||(6) Jeongsang Star (5) An Mok Hang (2) Dallineun Ace (8) Gyeonggukjima|
Race 2: Class 6 (1300M) Allowance / KRW 24 Million
There only appears to be a handful of chances in the second. (4) EAGLE EYE looks hard to beat coming off a last start second behind Hush Daebo. Leading rider Kim Yong-Geun will partner the Thunder Moccasin filly once again and from barrier four she will take some beating. Expect her to settle in the first four. (10) MANA HANA showed a good turn of foot last time out to finish fourth behind Simon Queen. The three-year-old will have the claim of Jo Sang-Beom. Kim Deok-Hyeon will partner (6) MACH THUNDER for the first time. The colt was slightly disappointing last time out when fading in the run home, but the run prior was good. The apprentice’s claim will assist. (9) SPADE MASHIE has burnt punters a few times, but he looks one that will pick up a maiden win eventually.

|Next Best||8, 1|
|Fast Start||1, 6|
Race 3: Class 5 (1300M) Handicap / KRW 40 Million
The third on the card has limited speed engaged in the field of nine. (1) ACHIEVE has begun her career in superb style, winning on debut and following it up with a placed performance last start behind Super Yeowang. Moon Se-Young was aboard for the maiden victory and will reunite with the four-year-old once again. From barrier one she will jump and run and prove hard to beat. (9) QUEEN OF CAMP has had nine starts for five top three finishes. Lim Gi Won was aboard the three-year-old last time out when second behind Young Storm. The filly is still looking for her first win but should be respected in this event. (7) DANGDAE JILJU has placed in similar company. Lee Dong Ha will pilot the Winchester filly after finishing in the money last time out. The 1300m will suit her but she is likely to settle midfield from the gate. (2) FEDERAL CAT has raced well early on in his career finishing in the top three on three occasions from five starts. He is likely to be ran off his feet early, but he will hit the line strong.
|Selections||(1) Achieve (9) Queen Of Camp (7) Dangdae Jilju (2) Federal Cat|

|Fast Start||1, 6|
Race 4: Class 4 (1000M) Allowance / KRW 60 Million
A field on nine inexperienced imports will take to the track in the fourth with four of them having their first start in a race. (9) KINGS STEP ran the arms off the clock last time out when running the 1000m in one-minute flat on a good track. The Australian bred has been elevated up the weight scale but should be hard to beat on his recent performance. He looks a short course specialist. (7) AMERICAN FORCE ONE will have his third start in this event. Moon Se-Young will be legged aboard the two-year-old for the first time. The Gemologist colt hit the line strong last time out when it was all over. (4) GEUMJAYU debuts for trainer Park Byeong-Il and will be ridden by Antonio Da Silva. The filly’s trial appeared the best of the debutants engaged. (3) JEONGSAN SMART ran a respectable trial and should be kept safe in any exotic bets.
|Selections||(9) Kings Step (7) American Force One (4) Geumjayu (3) Jeongsang Smart|
|Next Best||1, 5|
|Fast Start||4, 5, 9|
Race 5: Class 6 (1700M) Allowance / KRW 24 Million
Nine maiden gallopers will line up over the 1700m in the fifth on the card. (6) DALLYEORA SOKBO looks the one to beat coming off successive placed performances including a second over the 1700m last time out. The One Cool Cat only finished three quarters of a length away from Jungdong Dokju which reads well for this race. (8) SUPER VICTORY was a notable improver last time out when third behind Prima Nike. The filly will step up to the 1700m for the first time. Lee Dong-Ha thought she (more…)
