RACE 1

ONE STEP AHEAD is coming along the right way! He has placed in both his runs this term and doesn’t take on the strongest of Class 5 rivals. GALAXY EMPEROR is racing consistently. He gets the blinkers fitted which should keep his mind on the task at hand and he can pose a threat to the top selection. YEE CHEONG LUCKY is much better than his last two starts. He should be cherry-ripe having his third run after a rest and it will be no surprise to see him find a swift return to form with Karis Teetan giving him all the necessary assistance from the saddle.

RACE 2

The South African-bred ANONYMA almost led from gun to tape last time out. He got caught in the shadow of the post on that occasion but with similar tactics he can make amends from his inside barrier position. FAITHFUL TRINITY is much better than his last start suggests. He jumps from pole position and will benefit from a 3kgs apprentice allowance. RIGHT HONOURABLE has finally cracked a good draw and with some luck in running he should make his presence felt.

RACE 3

This is a very open Class 5 Handicap where some caution is advised. GREEN ENVY doesn’t finish too far off the winner. He just needs a bit of assistance from the handicapper and it won’t be long until he gets his first career victory. KA FORTUNE relished racing back in this class last time out and he has the ability to pose a challenge to the top selection. KWAI CHUNG ELITE is yet to win a race but he gets Joao Moreira aboard who will give him all the necessary assistance from the saddle.

RACE 4

INCANTO PREPARED followed up his recent win with a good fourth-place finish. He was finishing strongly on that occasion and was only beaten 0.8L at the wire. He won his penultimate effort under Joao Moreira and it is encouraging to see the pair reunited. V CHEVALIERS won by the narrowest of margins last time. He carries 3kgs more today but must be respected back again in the same class. LUCKY MISSILE is a course and distance winner. If putting his best foot forward then he can run into the money.

RACE 5

WILD WEST WING won in this class two starts ago. He is holding his condition well and represents decent each-way value for Hong Kong racing pundits. ARDENODE is yet to win on this course but he brings some decent form into this contest. He should be cherry-ripe having his third run after a rest and if putting his best foot forward then he should be right there at the business end. CARRY THE DIAMOND finished well of the pace last time. He has a wide draw to overcome but if getting across without using up too much energy then he can earn his first victory.

RACE 6

SPRINT FORWARD has finished runner-up in his last two starts. Not only is he difficult to oppose on paper but he will also benefit from a 3kgs apprentice claim thanks to Jerry Chau. He was only beaten by a head last time out and will be looking to make amends. NOBLE MAN performed fairly well in his latest. He was only beaten 2L at the wire and looks nicely handicapped in this contest. FANTASTIC FABIO has gone off form since his win on 14 October but if he can reproduce his best then he can run into the money.

RACE 7

KEEP YOU WARM has gone close in his last two outings. He settled just off the pace last time and was only beaten 0.8L at the wire. He won’t be short of race-fitness and should be a strong contender. STORM WARNINGS finished runner-up behind the progressive Sky Darci. The form of that race should be enough to win a contest of this nature. HARDLY SWEARS has placed in his last three outings. He is held by the second selection on his latest though as he is 1kg worse off at the weights.

RACE 8

SOLAR WAI WAI finished strongly in his comeback effort when pipped at the wire by Buddies. He is a three-time winner on this course and can make amends for the recent narrow defeat. GREEN LUCK finished right behind the top selection last time. He meets his recent conqueror on similar weight terms and may have to settle for the same result. STAR PERFORMANCE was no match for the winner in his last start but he is working himself towards a win. If repeating his 06 September effort then he can finish in the money.

RACE 9

MEHBOOB moved up nicely last time but tired in the late stages. The form of his penultimate run when defeating Winning Endeavour catches the eye. Matthew Chadwick knows him well and he is capable of finding a form return in the lucky last race. SCORES OF FUN is much better than his last start suggests. He is a horse that is still clearly on the upgrade and should the top choice fluff his lines then he will be there to pick up the pieces. LE TERRIOR holds a few of these runners on form. He followed up his recent win with a decent third-place finish behind Stanley Park and on that effort must have claims for minor money.
