International Racing: Sha Tin - Sunday 21 June 2020

International Racing: Sha Tin - Sunday 7 June 2020

A large and competitive eleven-race programme is scheduled for Sha Tin on Sunday with good underfoot conditions predicted. The value bet is WHISTLE UP in Race 1. This son of No Excuse Needed didn’t have things go his way in the straight last time out but if he can find a clear passage in the running, he looks set to make amends in the opening contest of the day.

Race 1
WHISTLE UP was unlucky last time out when he didn’t have a clear passage in the closing stages but still made some steady headway on the grandstand side of the track. With Teetan in the saddle, they are likely to settle off the pace and do their best work late. AURORA STEED was making steady ground on the rail last time under Magic Moreira and it is encouraging that he has kept faith in the ride. ROMAN ODYSSEY looks nicely placed in this Class 5 opener and if he puts his best foot forward then he can run into the places.

Race 2 
WINNING BREW was no match for the winner in his debut but will surely come on from the experience. He needs to be respected with Purton chasing Moreira for the Hong Kong Jockey Championship. GOODLUCK GOODLUCK narrowly failed last time out at Happy Valley and if he can overcome his wide draw without using too much energy, then he can make amends this time around. SUPER MISSON was dashing home strongly last time out despite taking a bump at the 450m mark and he looks the biggest threat to the top selection. NOBLE MAN finished runner-up in December under Moreira and he still has massive scope for improvement. He can prove that statement in this Class 4 contest.


Race 3
THANKS FOREVER is the class package in this Group 3 event and it is encouraging that Purton has retained the mount after their recent battle in a blanket finish over six furlongs. If he can handle the extra 200m on offer today, then he will take a power of beating in this contest. PERFECT MATCH looks the likely pacemaker in the race and the obvious threat to the top selection. FAT TURTLE won on this track in December under Moreira and they can run into the places if not too far back when turning for home

Race 4
GOLDEN LINK should have finished a lot closer to the winner last time out and if not for hanging in the latter stages, may have even won the race. With Magic Moreira in the irons, he will take a power of beating in this Class 4 contest. MAGIC SUPREME was a surprise winner last time out but it is encouraging that Chan has retained the ride this afternoon. SHIMMER AND SHINE has legitimate excuses last time out and if repeating his penultimate effort then he can run into the places.

Race 5
The Millard trained YEE CHEONG PEGASUS was most impressive in his recent victory when racing wide without cover to only hit the front late on. It is encouraging that conditioner Millard has opted to give Hamelin another chance on the son of Lonhro. SKY FIELD is relatively unexposed and he caught the eye on debut when making good ground in the latter stages. He still has plenty of scope for improvement and he looks the biggest threat to the top selection. ADONIS placed last time out under Teetan and may have finished closer to the winner if not finding some interference at the 800m mark.

Race 6
VICTORIOUS SEEKER drew clear last time and won easier than the margin suggests. He will settle off the pace and should be doing his best work in the latter stages of this contest. BULLISH GLORY is running well for Teetan at the moment and he can also make it back-to-back triumphs this afternoon. GOOD DAYS narrowly failed last time under Purton and it is encouraging that he has kept faith in the ride. 

Race 7
WONDER EXPRESS has done well over seven furlongs with Schoefield in the saddle recently and if enjoying the extra 200m on offer then he should be a massive runner in this Class 4 contest. ENJOY LIFE won last time under Moreira but does have some good prior form under So and he looks like a serious threat to the top selection. SO WE JOY is drawn wide but if he can get some cover then he can run into the places of this contest.

Race 8
FURORE should have finished closer last time out if not for experiencing a bump and becoming unbalanced at the 300m mark. Teetan retains the ride this afternoon and they should go very close to winning this contest. SOUTHERN LEGEND has been outstanding in his last two outings under Ho and he will give the top selection something to think about, should he fluff his lines. HELENE LEADINGSTAR is without Teetan this time around but he is much better than his last start when reported to be lame post-race and he can run into the places.

Race 9
FANTASTIC SHOW has been an absolute model of consistency under Moriera, looks extremely difficult to oppose on form and they should be right there at the business end of affairs. REEL BIZZY won the race last time out with 70m still left to go but the only concern here is that he drops slightly in distance. FLYING SWORD narrowly failed last time out but it is encouraging that Teetan has kept faith in the ride. Still, he will face a tough task beating the top selection in this Class 3 contest.

Race 10
AMAZING CHOCOLATE won with a ton in hand last time and with Teetan retaining the ride, they will be tough to peg back when turning for home. MARVEL DRAGON hit the front at the 150m mark last time and it was “race-over”. Interestingly, Teetan has opted to ride the top selection though. FLYING VICTORY was no match for the winner last time out but he brings some attractive form into this contest and can run into the places.

Race 11
GOOD LUCK FRIEND trounced the opposition last time when winning with plenty in hand and he is much better than his rating suggests.  Moreira retains the ride and they should make it back-to-back triumphs in the lucky last race. HINYUEN SWIFTNESS and rider Chan are in search of a hat-trick of wins and they look the obvious threat to the top selection. SUPER DOBBIN may have needed his first start in Hong Kong since relocating from the Marshall yard in South Africa and he should come on leaps from that experience at Happy Valley.
