Another tricky class 5 race to kick off the meeting. The pacing is slow. Little Fantasy will be a danger if Silvestre De Sousa can tackle the wide gate. Sweet Bean still maintain his form during trackwork, a better gate can help. Dragon Warrior finally has drawn a better gate and pedigree supported the distance. Enjoyable Success is settling well with a better jockey on board. Distance is a concern for Money Winner.
E/W #10 Little Fantasy or E/W #5 Sweet Bean
Very Rich Man will decide the winner of this race. He is classy in this race. If he sets up a quick tempo, Super Lucky will turn up to his best form. Lunar Zephyr has a massive run at Sha Tin and he has shown a lot better during trackwork for this race. Dollar Reward is likely a placegetter only. All Best Friends lost 27 pounds from its last race, not a good sign.
E/W #4 Very Rich Man
Pierro’s son Gift Of Lifeline steps up to 1200m with Silvestre De Sousa is hopeful to break the maiden. Jolly Bountiful improved in trackwork after a short break at Chonghua. Generous Heart must be a threat because of switching track from dirt to turf. Shinealot is still green, not easy to win.
Box Trifecta- #1 Jolly Bountiful / #4 Generous Heart / #9 Gift Of Lifeline
Plenty of horses not proven over the same C&D. Another dart throwing race in this evening. Mr Darthvegar has a couple trials at Happy Valley with good performance, pedigree also supports that should be one to watch. Naboo Star made good progress in trackwork for this preparation. Tavistock’s Fortunate Runner steps up to mile finally which is a good move. Love Chunghwa and Diamond Legend both pedigrees are well supported.
E/W #8 MR Darthvegar OR E/W #3 Love Chunghwa
A fast tempo race is suitable for Zac Purton’s Har Har Heart. Top Laurels has returned to Happy Valley after two disappointing defeats at the dirt track, a wide gate won’t affect his chance. Imperial Gallantry is classy in class3, time to upset the fields. Amazing has just returned from injury, huge question mark on this ex Godolphin horse.
Win #3 Har Har Heart
Sacred Ibis is classy in class3 with backmarker specialist Umberto Rispoli on board. Namjong Plus is a better horse when a foreign jockey ride on him. Helene Charisma is a overrated horse. Vigor Fame keeps progressing from every races. Pikachu time to shine in class 3.
Win #1 Sacred Ibis OR #2 Namjong Plus
Special Stars stayed in Hong Kong after a devastating loss the last start and he has shown terrific progress in trackwork. Waldorf should be a better horse at Happy Valley but the trial has shown he is in a slump. Gallant Return had a superb run under Joao Moreira the last start, decent chance. Coby Oppa still green in trackwork, switching to turf may not help. E Master has turned to a better horse after changing stable, surely can compete in class 3.
Win #4 Special Stars
Chase me if you can! Plenty speedy horses in the last race of the meeting. Hard to separate between Country Star and Music Addition. Handsome Bobo has drawn gate 1 that is a huge plus. Super Turbo can make a huge run if those frontrunners failed to perform well.
