    ... again on Wednesday night that he is near a win. Power Cool was making only his 10th visit to the races, with the gelding's career having been curtailed so far with two separate episodes of heart irregularities after racing.

    ... into Class Three. The other winner who impressed was Happy Rocky, and he should progress through Class Four into the next grade too. His race was not run to suit back markers, but Happy Rocky turned in real acceleration with a 22.59 seconds final sectional and the further the race went late, the greater his margin- a good sign. Employed over shorter trips until Wednesday, his breeding says ...

    Beauty Only a Derby horse in the making

Only a handful of PPs win on debut each season and Beauty Only's prospects pre-race also hinged on his ability to even get into the race, as he had missed the start clearly ...

The carnage at different parts of the eighth race at Sha Tin will likely make it very unreliable form as we go forward. Wherever any horse finished in the race on Sunday, you could line them up again next week and get a completely different result, there were so many unlucky ones. ...
