Whyte set for another bumper day, including Alex Wong's King in the third event The Douglas Whyte-Alex Wong Yu-on partnership always yields its fair share of winners through the season and the dynamic duo have an excellent chance to win the third event at Sha Tin this afternoon with promising maiden galloper King Palm. This son of 1994 Breeder's Cup Mile winner Barathea almost notched his first victory last start over 1,400 metres when a game second to Miracles. On that occasion, he was not racing on the best part of the track, and the form has been boosted with My Choice (sixth) winning on Wednesday. There is little doubt he will prefer to race over more ground, but he is now at peak fitness and with Whyte in scintillating form there is every reason to be confident of a breakthrough here. One of the main threats should come from Recovery, who has been a shade disappointing in two runs. He, too, was disadvantaged by the track bias last time and as he strikes easier opposition here should be given due respect. The manner in which South China Ninety stormed home over the 1,200 metres at Happy Valley last time indicated he should be ready to give a good account. He will relish the move to Sha Tin, along with the extra furlong, and from a low barrier he should have every chance to figure in the finish. Dragon's Era displayed some promise on debut last season when sixth behind Justinian over the course and distance, and then had excuses when striking a soft track at Happy Valley. His work has been solid leading up to this and must be kept safe. It has been hard to fault the early season form of Brilliant, who has been beaten 163/4 lengths on two occasions over the 1,200 metres journey. The slight concern is he is yet to make the frame from four attempts over the course and distance, but is capable of making the frame. Southern Light continues to impress in his morning work and has not = been disgraced on either outing this season. He is competitively weighted and, given he should be near peak condition, does warrant serious attention. There is no doubt Show Bravely will be picking up a race in this class in the imminent future and there were definite excuses last time when the sedate tempo proved most unsuitable over the Valley mile. He would prefer a shade farther, but the C+3 course is often favourable to swoopers with a similar racing pattern. Expect the blinkers to improve Joyful World, who looked timid on his last start and he will also appreciate the step up in distance. This fellow is still on the learning curve but there is some latent potential there and he looks a value chance. Much the same applies for Precious Moments, who is a little harder to recommend from a wide gate. Based on his current form, he looks outclassed but is one to watch for the future. The recent trial of Cheerful Heart did not inspire confidence as he looked to be under pressure a long way from home. From the outside gate, he's likely to be covering plenty of extra ground. Tiger Dan has not displayed much potential from a handful of starts and, following a moderate effort in a recent trial, there is no reason to suggest he should be included. Sherwood Forest was well beaten when 10th to Shining Dragon on his only outing as a griffin and obviously still has plenty to learn. Given the increased bodyweight of Mr President (51 pounds), along with a light preparation, he is expected to benefit from the race. David Hayes has an excellent chance of landing the penultimate event with Double Happiness, who went within a neck of beating subsequent winner Wealthy Treasure. He has struck a relatively moderate Class 3 contest and if able to hold his form he will prove hard to beat. Dave's Best is the obvious threat with the move up to the mile, while Fighting Mascot won well last time and also looks a quinella chance.
