RACE 1

U W BROTHER is much better than his moderate last start suggests. He was narrowly beaten under Moreira in his penultimate run and doesn’t take on the strongest field in this opening contest. FARM BUMPER is better than his last start when reported to be lame. Schofield retains the ride and it will be no surprise to see him find a swift return to form in this type of field. JOYFUL WIN is still relatively unexposed and is still learning what racing is all about. With the natural improvement that is expected, he can run into the money.

RACE 2

BABY STORM has run two decent races under Moreira. He backed up his favourite status last time when winning over this c&d and the manner in which he finished off that race suggests there may be another one in the tank. TREASURE CHEST followed up his recent win with two third-place finishes. He brings ultra-consistent form into the race and should give another good account of himself. VIRTUS STAR is arguably lucky to still be competing in Class 5. He reeled off a hat-trick at this level towards the end of last year and must be considered.

RACE 3

SMART COUSIN produced a fair effort last time at Sha Tin racecourse. He performs better on this track and a repeat of his penultimate effort should see him take a power of beating. MISTER MONTE faces a difficult test but shoulders a handy galloping weight. He may adopt to dictate matters again and can be hard to reel-in. PERFECT TO PLAY got cramped at the 600m mark last time. His last win came under Moreira and with better luck in running, he can finish in the money.

RACE 4

ROYAL BOMB is the best bet on the card. He was narrowly beaten in his course debut last time out and was arguably unlucky not to make it back-to-back wins. He would have gained from the experience and will take a power of beating. WEALTHY DELIGHT hit the front at the 250m mark last time and won in impressive fashion. If repeating that type of effort then should be able to pose a threat to the top selection. The South African-bred PARTERRE makes his Hong Kong debut. He finished third in The Politician Stakes and fourth in the Cape Derby. If fit he should be able to make his presence felt and is definitely a sort to keep an eye on.

RACE 5

JOLLY GOOD HEART produced a career best performance last time out under Purton. He moved up like a winner that day but was caught in the latter stages. SPRINT FORWARD is a natural frontrunner who will benefit from a 3kgs claiming apprentice in the saddle. If allowed to have his own way in front, he can be difficult to mow down in the dash to the wire. DAILY BEAUTY is much better than his below par last outing. He finished runner-up in his penultimate run under Moreira and should find a swift return to form.

RACE 6

GALLANT CROWN takes on a competitive field but the manner in which he has won his last two starts suggests the hat-trick is very much on the cards, and he represents decent each-way value for Hong Kong racing pundits. GLORIOUS LOVER is coming along the right way. He finished runner-up in his last start under Moreira and it is encouraging that he has kept faith in the ride. ZHAN JIANG ROCKS likes to produce his dash from off the pace and if not too far back when turning for home, he should be right there. 

RACE 7

STOCK LEGEND is in search of a hat-trick of wins. He is drawn wide and will have to shoulder top weight but should be up to the task at hand. WHISKEY NEAT has been costly to follow for some but he always gives of his best. He has finished runner-up in his last three outings and is a “must” for Exacta players. ROMANTIC TROVE made eye-catching late progress last time out. He is still lightly raced and with the expected natural improvement on offer, he can run into the money. 

RACE 8

FLYING GENIUS is a 1000m specialist. His form is attractive if you ignore his penultimate run and despite having to shoulder top weight, he should be right there at the business end. KURPANY followed up his recent win with a fair effort over this c&d. He gets Moreira in the saddle, who may be able to coax a little extra out of him where it matters most. SAUL’S SPECIAL finished third when teamed up with French ace Piccone for the first time and a repeat of that effort could see him pose a threat to the top selection.

RACE 9

KA YING MASTER hit the front at the 300m mark last time under current champion jockey Purton and it was race-over. He jumps from an inside barrier and will be looking to close off the evening. SPARKLING DRAGON finished runner-up last time over this c&d and will be hoping to go one better. TORNADO TWIST was clear second best last but he was staying on strongly on that occasion. A repeat of that effort should see him run into the money.
