RACE 1
SHANGAI DRAGON dictated terms fairly well in his last outing. He found one better on that occasion when passed in the latter stages and he will be looking to make amends in the opening contest. ROMAN IMPERO made vast improvement last time out. He gets top rider Mickael Barzalona in the irons and he needs to be respected despite having to shoulder top weight. BABY STORM was narrowly beaten last time out. He has finished third in his last two outings and should be right there at the business end of affairs. 

RACE 2
KA FORTUNE’S next win looks on the horizon. He has finished runner-up in his last two outings and he looks fairly handicapped in this contest. He is likely to race just off the speed and he should be galloping past the frontrunners when they reach the final furlong. DESTINE JEWELLERY found a good form return in his last start. He got going too late on that occasion and if producing his run a bit earlier, he could just edge it. SPEEDY OPTIMIST has finished third in his last two outings under current KH Champion jockey Zac Purton and he can run into the money once again. 

RACE 3 
INCANTO PREPARED moved up like a winner when narrowly beaten at the wire. He is well-drawn and has been racing well in 2020 with Joao Moreira in the irons. ZHAN JIANG ROCKS will have to shoulder top weight but he can make his presence felt in this field. He was held up for a run from the 400-350 mark last time out and probably should have finished closer to the winner as a result. BULLETPROOF failed to find cover in his last outing. If getting across from his wide draw without using up too much energy then he can run into the money. 

RACE 4
WINNER’S HEART ran on well to finish second last time out despite not finding any cover in the race. He is at best over the minimum trip at this stage of his career and if putting his best foot forward he can find himself in the winner’s enclosure. JAZZ STEED brings consistent form into the race. He likes to sit just off the early pace and pounce on them late. He gets French ace Boudot in the saddle and the pair merit healthy respect. OVERSUBSCRIBED followed up his recent win with a decent third-place finish over this distance. He gets Karis Teetan aboard who interestingly won the Hong Kong Jockeys Challenge last year. 

RACE 5
PLAY WISE represents decent each-way value for Hong Kong racing pundits. He has finished runner-up in his last four outings and gets Ryan Moore aboard who has interestingly has won multiple feature races in Hong Kong. FEARLESS FIRE followed up his recent win with a solid third-place finish. He got cramped for room at the 300m mark but the manner in which he finished off his race was encouraging and he can pose a threat to the top selection. REGENCY MASTER has been a model of consistency. He has reeled off two wins a second and three third-place finishes from his last six outings. He shoulders top weight but should be right there where it matters most. 

RACE 6
WINS ALL has struck up a decent partnership with Karis Teetan. He got cramped for room at the 300m mark and may have won the race with a clear passage. INNO LEGEND has finished runner-up in his last two outings. It is encouraging that Zac Purton rides again and he looks an obvious threat to the top selection. HERE COMES TED brings ultra-consistent form into the race. He is also quite versatile with tactics and he should be staying on strongly off any speed they choose to go.  

RACE 7
REEL BIZZY has been beaten by the narrowest of margins in his last two outings. He will have to shoulder top weight in this contest but will have the benefit of jumping in pole position. French ace Boudot takes the ride and he should find himself in the winner’s enclosure. LIGHTNEED STEED set the pace last time and was only outrun in the latter stages. He is drawn wide but can make his presence felt if getting across without using up too much energy. GIFT OF LIFELINE should have finished closer last time out. He was held up for a run from the 350-300m mark on that occasion and with better luck in running, he can finish in the money.  

RACE 8
GRATEFUL HEART dictated terms well to make it back-to-back wins last time out. The manner in which he won suggests that the hat-trick is very much on the cards. Ryan Moore takes the ride and he should give him a decent ride from the front. BEAUTY SPARK moved up like a winner last time but was only outrun in the latter stages. If repeating that type of effort then he should be able to challenge the top selection. The South African-bred CUE THE MUSIC showed encouraging signs of a form return in his last start. He gets Joao Moreira in the saddle who may be able to coax a little extra out of him where it matters most. 

RACE 9 
GREEN LUCK brings consistent form into the luck last race. He moved up like a winner last time and showed real guts when narrowly beaten at the wire. He is drawn wide but will get all the necessary assistance with Joao Moreira in the saddle. SAVVY NINE finished mid-pack last time out. His form prior to that catches the eye and if putting his best foot forward then he will be mowing down the frontrunners in the dash to the wire. STAR SHINE has finished third in his last three outings. He is another that likes to race well off the pace and will be doing his best work late.
