RACE 1

SKY GEM is the top selection for the opening contest. He ran on from far back last time out over further and his versatile nature suggests that the drop in distance should suit. His last win came under Magic Moreira in May and it is encouraging the see the pair reunited for this contest. HAY RUN won his penultimate race under Derek Leung and he has the form to pose a threat to the top selection. ART OF RAW moved up like a winner in his last start and was only caught with 80m left to the finish. If reproducing that type of effort then he should be right there at the business end of affairs.


RACE 2

PARTY EVERYDAY and Karis Teetan look difficult to oppose in the second race. The pair are in search of a hat-trick of wins and despite shouldering top weight, they look the ones to beat in this contest. SKYEY SUPREME was clear second best last time out but he should have finished closer to the winner that day as he got cramped for room at the 400m mark. With better luck in running he looks a serious threat to the top selection. LUCKY WIN WIN finished third under Vagner Borges in his last run and a reproduction of that effort should see him run into the money.


RACE 3

CARRY THE DIAMOND ran on nicely over the minimum trip for Chad Schoefield on debut. He jumps from an inside barrier position and will come on leaps with that run under the belt. FABULOUS EIGHT has finished runner-up in his last three outings and his next career win looks overdue. It is encouraging to see him team up with Magic Moreira again and the pair look the obvious danger on form. UNITED WE STAND is an in form pacemaker and if he can overcome his wide draw without using up too much energy then he can run into the money. 


RACE 4

CHEERFUL LEADER can find a form return in the fourth race and represents decent each way value for Hong Kong racing pundits. He had no luck in running last time and if recapturing his prior form then he should be right there in the run down to the wire. Chad Schoefield takes the ride and the pair will be tough to peg back in the closing stages. MR ALDAN hit the front convincingly at the 250m mark last time and won in impressive fashion. If repeating that type of effort then he can make it back-to-back wins in this contest. CHARITY GO didn’t benefit from a slow pace last time out but still managed to run on well for third. With a more solid pace on offer he should be able to run into the money.

RACE 5

BELUGA hasn’t race since March which is a concern but he is packed with ability and would have strengthened nicely during the break. Also it is encouraging that Zac Purton has kept faith in the ride. MONKEY JEWELLERY has finished runner-up in his last two outings and looks the obvious threat on paper, despite having to shoulder top weight in this contest. WINNING STEED is an Australian-bred having his first start in Hong Kong. Watch the betting with regards to his chances.


RACE 6

SCORES OF FUN was a debut winner at this course and he will be looking to keep his unbeaten record intact. He jumps from pole position and is possibly still ahead of the handicapper at such an early stage of his career. CLASSIC POSH ran on nicely last time out despite having an awkward start and he must be respected with a claiming apprentice in the irons. GOLDEN MISSION hasn’t finished far off the winner in his last four outings and if overcoming his wide draw then he can run into the money.


RACE 7

Jockey Neil Callan has interestingly opted to ride CASIMIRO over LEADING FORTUNE in this race. Both bring attractive form into this race and they should be right there in the fight to the finish. PARTY GENIUS ran on steadily last time out despite taking a bump at the start and getting crowded for room in the race. Karis Teetan is in scintillating form and should be able to get the best out of him where it matters most.


RACE 8

CHEVALIER PRINCE comes in nicely handicapped and at the weights looks a massive contender in the eighth race. He drops back to the seven furlongs in which he won his penultimate start and should be able to get back to winning ways. THE ROCK is yet to win a race but he will definitely be competitive in this class. Magic Moreira steps aboard for the first time and the pair will benefit from a good pace up front. GREAT TREASURE ran on nicely from off the pace and he has the form to upset from his neat barrier position.


RACE 9

WINNING DREAMER is the best bet on today’s card. He is unbeaten from two starts and still looks ahead of his rating at this stage. He tries an extra 200m and if relishing the extra distance on offer then he will take a power of beating in the ninth race. CHICKEN DANCE is another one that goes for a hat-trick of wins but the only concern in that he returning from a lengthy break. If he returns fit to the races then he may be one to pick up the pieces should the top choice fluff his lines. TEMPLE OF HEAVEN is the unexposed horse in the race and with the natural improvement that is expected, he can run into the money.


RACE 10

LAKESHORE EAGLE and Karis Teetan reeled off the hat-trick last time out and the manner in which he won all three of those races suggests that there is plenty more to come from this invidual. He jumps from a wide draw and if getting some cover he will be tough to beat in the lucky last race. EXCELLENT PROPOSAL got up where it matters most last time despite not finding a clear passage in the running. This John Size inmate in improving rapidly and is still fairly unexposed in this class. ASSIMILATE has performed well in his last two runs under Antoine Hamelin and the form of those two races suggest that he can run into the money.
