Versatile Good Good View has a rosy future
Good Good View looks certain to maintain in-form Dennis Yip Chor-hong's hot streak following a promising debut second in the Class Four Mount Parker Handicap (1,200m) on Tuesday at Sha Tin.
The three-year-old progressed nicely on his three lead-up barrier trials and was well found in the market as a third choice at $58.
The gelding was allowed to find his feet third from the rear after jumping with the field from gate six under Zac Purton, was strung up in traffic upon straightening with six lengths to make up, obtained a clear run when shifting outside a tiring Ka Wai Fortune at the 250m before hitting the line with plenty of gusto to come up a half-length second to Divine Diya.
Good Good View has a versatile pedigree and should be effective over 1,400m to 1,800m.
He's son of Intergaze and Varick mare Tudor Lane. Intergaze was a 12-time winner, including the Group One Australian Cup over 2,000m, and his only starter in Hong Kong is the honest Top Scorer - twice a winner over a mile on the turf and 1,800m on the dirt and seven times placed from 24 starts. His dam was a winner at 1,100m and has produced three winning foals up to 1,400m.
Elsewhere, the David Hall-trained Berlinski caught the eye following a solid fifth in a Class Four over 1,200m with late-market support (12-1 to 7-1).
Berlinski was ridden cold from a wide gate under Weichong Marwing and was forced deep on the track at the 200m and ran on nicely to go down by only a length behind the well-fancied newcomer Rewarding Hero, who had a cheap run on the back of a moderate pace.
It was another positive performance for the son of the established Fastnet Rock, who finished fifth in his November debut over the straight 1,000m behind Disciples Twelve.
Berlinski has a solid pedigree to be an effective performer up to a mile.
