Cruz set to plunder another prize down the straight 1,000m with Lo in saddle Tony Cruz's yard is bulging with talented sprinters and the dual international race-winning trainer has an excellent chance to extend his domination of feature events today with Super Brose in the Pok Oi Cup. The talented son of former Australian speed machine Gold Brose has to be the one to beat, based on his only run this season when fourth to all-conquering Hong Kong Sprint champion Silent Witness on October 11. He displayed steady improvement last season when winning five times, which saw his rating rise from 52 to 110. Three of his victories have come down the straight 1,000 metres at Sha Tin and his most recent fourth was the only time he failed to hit the frame. He finished a length behind Firebolt (who finished fourth in the Hong Kong Sprint) and beat home the likes of Cape Of Good Hope (third in the Sprint). Cruz has put a great deal of faith in apprentice Paul Lo Pak-hin and the 10-pound claim brings Super Brose into this contest very well weighted. Super Brose won a dirt trial in impressive fashion recently and will take all the beating. Somewhat surprisingly, there are very few straight-course specialists in the line-up. Celestial Magic, Triple Expresso, Our Class and General Kingy have all won over the course and distance, but scarcely qualifty as 'specialists' down the speed-oriented, idiosyncratic straight strip. The exception is Flashing Star, who has finished first or second seven times from nine attempts down the 1,000-metre chute. It was a fair effort to finish in sixth behind Silent Witness in the International Sprint Trial, when right out of his grade, and it's stating the obvious to say he tackles much easier opposition this time round. Flashing Star is also competitively treated with the limit weight (113lbs). Over his pet trip and receiving weight all round, he must be given an outstanding chance to figure in the finish. Celestial Magic was an impressive winner at his only attempt over the course and distance and has beaten the likes of Flashing Star. He meets the latter six pounds worse for three-quarters of a length, so may find it hard to hold the edge but still warrants plenty of respect because he's a wonderful, tough competitor and will not surrender easily, even with a weight disadvantage. Triple Expresso has failed to hit the frame at his last 19 starts and his form this season has been far from inspiring. He is falling to a rating where he could be competitive but is difficult to recommend. General Kingy proved more than a shade disappointing last time when finishing down the track behind Able Prince over the course and distance. As he strikes stronger opposition, it is hard to envisage him figuring in the finish. Although Our Class has won down the straight, he has been beaten out of sight on his last few outings and his form is in a depression. Furthermore, there is no reason to suggest he can improve today. Victory Warrior finished second to Super Brose down the straight last season and he meets him on better terms (four pounds) today. He strikes easier opposition and the drop back in distance is another positive. He must be included in all multiples. There is a good chance Kingston Winner can hit the frame, based on his last run when second to Key To Success in course record time at Happy Valley. He will be fitter for that outing, and although he would prefer a fraction farther at least he is in good form. Happy Valley Vase winner Gallant Knight has failed to recapture his excellent form from the tail end of last season. However, he has been freshened up and is competitively weighted on his better form. Debutant Saturn did not trial that well on the turf over the course and distance, and his overseas form suggests he wants farther. He will also take benefit from this outing. Another having his first local start is Expectations, who showed plenty of early speed in a dirt trial. The British import has decent form over sprint distances and could be a value chance following some positive trackwork.
