Race 1 (1,000M)
9 Inspiring City seems to be talented. He tried well in his lead-up to this point. A positive show is expected under Vincent C Y Ho.
5 Lucky Banner ran twice under his belt. He can go one step further.
3 Happy Won will debut. Zac Purton’s booking is closely watching trainer Frankie Lore.
6 Our precious finished the 4th first up. Expect improved efforts at Sha Tin’s tricky opener.
Race 2 (1,600M)
The 13 Multistars caught the eye with a fast one-third three runs ago. He pulled a lot again, but he is expected to drift back before being late. It should be worth it.
2 Flying Mighty is approaching victory many times. He has some ability. He is worth one way.
8 Diamond Star is doing well this season with two wins. Expect competitive efforts.
3 GoGo Sixteen looks like it’s in place. He is the next best thing.
Race 3 (1,200M)
2 Bundle of Charms can be made from 2 to 2. He made a strong impression at the time of his debut and is expected to extend the sequence with João Moreira. Wide gates are the only concern.
9 Sweet Diamonds raced twice. He is showing signs of his abilities and needs to go one step further.
7 General Grenley can launch an attack on this group with appropriate action.
3 There is a claim to the war of courage. He needs to improve getting down to class 4.
Race 4 (1,000M)
9 Happy Trio mixes his form, but shows a stack of abilities over this course and distance. Expect to return to the form under the right conditions.
3 Super Axiom needs to find the front, preferably catch me and play. He will see the winner at some stage.
5 United We Stand is a straightforward threat. Expect competitive efforts.
The 6-time storm can be improved after a solid first effort.
Race 5 (1,400M)
8 Dazzling Fellow seems to improve every time I run it. Expect the additional 200 meters to be a big factor for him.
3 Leather Vanguard finished second in his debut. He is open to further improvement.
6 All Is Good is increasing. He is chasing towards his first victory.
The 9 Double Show is on a similar ascent. Be careful.
Race 6 (1,400M)
12 Vitralite is being improved. Despite the rain-affected ground, he eventually seemed to splice it all together. He may have won that day, but he found himself in the worst part of the track.
5 Tycoon Jewelery was the 5th most reliable debut. He remains unclear, but he is expected to gain experience and keep moving forward.
6 E Rainbow is on the rise and is serviced by Purton. He draws well and gets a chance from Gate 4.
13 Aurora Hero Slots glow. He has to fight.
Race 7 (1,200M)
5 Ka Ying Master got a good result from the front desk last time. Expect him to roll forward from the inner draw and try to pinch this. This is easy to do.
3 Campione can forgive his latest run. Expect him to bounce back into the form, especially if he’s settled prominently on a run under Matthew Poon.
2 Silverfigs have the best races on this course and distance. He seems to be back.
11 Red Desert claims to have no weight on its back. Moreira’s reservation is a plus.
Race 8 (1,600M)
3 Running Glory is elegant. It’s no surprise to see him stop the undefeated execution of Galaxy Witness. A five-time winner of the season, he has been proven at multiple distances and is well suited for racing.
6 Galaxy Witness is an obvious choice as we are trying to extend the undefeated sequence to five. He looks well above average, but stepping up a trip can surprise him.
5 All For St Paul’s removes luck from the equation by rolling forward to the lead. You need to respect.
1 California Ten is finding his ditch again. Do not exclude him.
Race 9 (1,200M)
8 Jazz Angel checks some boxes. He was a well-drawn, well-shaped and strong winner on the course and distance three runs ago. He looks like a sure chance.
3 Lightning bolts don’t know how to work. He is already the winner of this season’s course and distance. He is watching carefully.
9 Call Me Teddy was defeated in a close-up last time. He found the shape, and the dirt looks like he’s going.
10 The flying dragon glows. The inner gate is suitable.
Race 10 (1,400M)
2 Casa Daddy pays attention to his debut. He continues the day strongly and there is room for further improvement. Derek Leung takes over and a clear run throughout gives him every opportunity.
14 High Cloud closed well with its 9th eye-catching debut. Expect him to take a decisive step with his second start in Hong Kong.
10 Super Winners can find the front desk and run this group. If he is left alone, he is in great danger. He is worth a one-way bet.
1 Captain Win has a class advantage. He can bounce.
Race 11 (1,200M)
9 Global Harmony is making its debut in Hong Kong. Formerly known as a heathen in Australia, he is well above average. There seems to be a high probability of his debut victory. He tried well, and his best is to challenge this group.
Last time, 2 Star Bright grew well. He looks in a very good position after winning in a row.
6 Power Koepp claims to be able to offset tricky draws.
3 Private rocket is screaming. Please do not discount.
