A jackpot of $13 million should result in a TT pool hitting $30 million and Ricky Yiu Poon-fie's Smart Champion can deliver the goods in the opening leg following two sterling efforts earlier this season. There has been plenty to like about each run of Smart Champion who hit the frame on both starts over 1,400 metres. The form from his last race when second to My Choice has taken a boost with third placed Scintillation scoring next time out, and with possible further improvement he should have every chance to notch his first local victory. Quick News has held his form all season and based on his last two performances over the course and distance must rate a strong chance of hitting the frame again. Villager gave plenty of cheek out on the lead last time over 1,400 metres when caught in the shadow of the post by Flash Harry. He should find a similar role again and is capable of filling a minor placing. Spring Fountain shaped nicely in a recent trial and does look well treated in the ratings for his first run this season, while Mystic Spirits would rate a place chance if forgiven for a disappointing effort last time. The best option for banker in the middle-pin would be Fortune Smiles who almost broke through last start when second to Favourite Express. He is on the upgrade, and with John Size and Shane Dye in cracking form he must be given due respect. Swiss Lad often starts under the odds but has been displaying steady improvement this term and should appreciate the return to Sha Tin along with the step up in distance. The move back to the bigger course should also suit Southern Light who has been thereabouts in his last few outings. He was beaten by a nose two starts ago over the course and distance and is capable of making the frame. Sunday Delight did move stylishly in a recent trial and, based on his only run this season, is one to keep safe. He is fitter now and open to considerable improvement. Justinian remains in top form and cannot be left out of calculations while Triumph was spotted moving much better in a recent turf trial and also has place claims. The final leg is held over the dirt mile and one specialist on that surface is Fat Chance who is searching for his third consecutive win. He clearly relishes the surface and given the sheer ease of his victories he does look more than capable of rising a good deal higher in the ratings. Czar Of Prussia, who finished second over the course and distance last time, is a possible option as a double banker in the final leg. He will have every chance to atone from a better alley this time round with Douglas Whyte on board. Holy Quest ran well in defeat on Wednesday over the shorter journey and given he is back in form must be rated a good chance to figure in the finish once again. By Instinct merits respect with a return to this surface while Latte and Chinook are unknown quantities but, given recent form, are ones to keep on the safe side. Sugar And Spice is another capable of hitting the frame considering his excellent course and distance record and is yet another place hope in a wide-open affair. Given his solid dirt record, Step Forward looks the logical banker pick in the third event. Floral Dancer has made the frame on all three dirt starts and must be included, while Bien Bien Heart has hit form and is bred to handle the all weather. China Cat has worked quite well leading up to his seasonal reappearance and is one to consider while Fantastic Horse will need luck in running but can make the frame.
