International Racing: Sha Tin – Sunday 14 June 2020




A large and competitive eleven-race programme is scheduled for Sha Tin on Saturday with heavy underfoot conditions predicted. The best bet is PRESIDENTS CHOICE in Race 11. This classy son of Redoute’s Choice has struck up a remarkable partnership with Karis Teetan and the pair should get back to winning ways in the lucky last.

Jockeys Ride Horses

Race 1
CHANCHENG PRINCE has placed in all three starts to date and with Magic Moreira in the saddle, they should be difficult to get past in the opener. SEA MONARCH raced without cover and unfortunately didn’t settle in the running last time out but if repeating his debut effort then he will pose a threat to the top selection. TINKER BELLE is a filly taking on males and she may be able to use her sex allowance effectively in this contest.

Race 2
BUNDLE OF ENERGY was no match for the winner over this course and distance last time, but it is encouraging that Moreira retains the ride. He will benefit from a decent pace set up front and shouldn’t be too far off them in the turn for the straight. SHANGAI DRAGON found a form return last time went he set the pace and he could adopt similar tactics in this contest. GALAXY RACER is much better than his last start suggests, and he can run into the places.

Race 3
This looks like a match race on paper. FABULOUS EIGHT has done superbly in his last two starts under Moreira and he should get across from his wide draw without exerting too much energy. DUBLIN STAR looks the obvious threat, but Moreira will know what to do on the top selection having formerly ridden this one. COMFORT LIFE finished runner-up over this course and distance last time under Borges, and they need to be considered for the places.

Race 4
LAKESHORE EAGLE and Teetan are in search of a hat-trick of wins this afternoon. He had already won the race with 150m left to go last time out although he does his best work late, he should be picking off the frontrunners in the closing stages of this contest. RIGHT CHOICE has finished runner-up in his last two starts and with Purton riding, he looks the obvious threat to the top selection. The chestnut ASSIMILATE settled nicely off the pace last time out when winning over seven furlongs and if handling the rise in trip this afternoon, then he can run into the places of this contest.

Race 5
CASIMIRO was running on well in his last start over this course and distance when placing third. He didn’t get the best of beginnings on that occasion and it is encorauging that Callan has kept faith in the ride. GALLANT LEGACY has done well in his last two starts under Borges and they are the biggest challenger to the top selection. FAST PACE showed some potential on debut over six furlongs and he can improve if relishing the extra ground on offer this afternoon. 

Race 6
GUNNAR enjoys a decent pace in front, and he was dashing strongly over this course and distance last time when finishing runner-up. LITTLE THUNDER should have finished closer last time as he found some interference at the 700m mark. FORTUNE HAPPINESS is another one who got crowded last time out and only got a clear gap in the final furlong. Moreira will make a big difference and he can upset in a field of this nature.

Race 7
CHAMPION SUPREME had a wall of horses in front of him with a final furlong to go and only got a clear passage late in the running. It is encouraging that Borges has kept faith in the ride and if repeating their penultimate effort when winning in style over slightly further, then they will be difficult to reel in. DEFINING MOMENT doesn’t seem to run a bad race with Moreira in the saddle and they look like the biggest threat to the top selection. ABOVE is much better than his last start suggests when found to have mucus post-race and on his prior form, he has strong claims.

Race 8
FANTASY doesn’t have Moreira in the irons this time, but he is a six-furlong specialist. On paper he will still be tough to beat in this Class 2 Handicap with Poon in the irons. Moreira has kept faith in the ride on GUNNISON and these two look set to fight out the finish. ENCORE BOY is better than his last outing when he struggled to settle in the running and if recapturing his prior form, then he can run into the places of this contest.

Race 9
This is a wide-open contest in Class 4. SAM’S LOVE got going when the race was over last time out, but it is really positive that Hamelin has kept faith in the mount. If he doesn’t have any traffic problems, he should go very close to winning this contest. CHEVALIER PRINCE is lightly raced and may be forgiven for his greenness under Purton last time. This pair could make easily make amends this afternoon if everything goes his way. DREAM WARRIORS has a creditable victory under Teetan but he may have to settle for another place in this class.

Race 10
CALIFORNIA CONCORD still looks ahead of his rating at this stage on his latest triumph under Teetan, the pair will take a power of beating in this contest. Teetan will be hoping to pull off a double in the last two races of today’s proceedings and he must be respected. GOOD FOR YOU has been a model of consistency under Mo recently and they can pose a massive threat to the top selection. UTOPIA LIFE is a frontrunner that enjoys racing up with the pace and with Moreira aboard he may just be tough to peg back in the closing stages of this contest.

Race 11
PRESIDENT’S CHOICE is the best bet on the card. He likes to settle in just behind the leaders and often does his best work in the final furlong. He was fairly beaten last time over this c & d but expect him and Teetan to get back to winning ways in the lucky last. BE READY got a few bumps in his last start and arguably would have finished much closer to the winner on that occasion if not for all that inconvenience. With Schoefield in the saddle, they can pose a threat to the top selection. The chestnut HAPPY ALUMNI is much better than his last effort suggests and can run into the places.
