The sparkling end-of-season form of Master Spirit has been a revelation in recent weeks and the progressive three-year-old should have little trouble winning his third race from his last four outings in the fifth event. Master Spirit, a son of Distorted Humor, first came to notice when a fighting second to Mr Genki over 1,400 metres in Class Five company on February 5. On the strength of that excellent run, he was well backed to open his account in the lower grade 22 days later and made no mistake under the guidance of Robbie Fradd. Master Spirit looked a grade better than Class Five that afternoon and so it has proved, with the Australian-bred making light of the class rise at his subsequent run to score over 1,400m in Class Four company. Trainer Danny Shum Chap-shing decided to test Master Spirit's versatility after that run. His Class Five win had come over the Sha Tin mile and the Class Four at 1,400m, but he tested him further on June 5 by brining him back to 1,200m. The bay gelding did very well for third to Gold Medal Winner, but was only a half length from the chestnut when the judge called a halt. As good a run as that was, he is going to be even better suited reverting to 1,400m today. The way today's race looks like setting up, Fradd should be able to give Master Spirit the run of the race from barrier six. It looks like Champ Dragon and Laser Glory should go out together in front, possibly joined by the untractable Danske Very Much. Fradd should be able to pop Master Spirit in behind this trio and enjoy a saloon passage to the home turn. Sigificantly, Master Spirit has won on both good and yielding tracks, so the effect of the current wet spell will have no negative impact on his winning prospects.
