Star Form:

Ended last season with a narrow C&D win. Not disgraced without menacing the winner four times at both tracks this term. Had his chance in a recent 2,200m fourth at Sha Tin. --3

11049 -4B/TTP. O'Sullivan513236K. C. Leung27.87.12.5

Star Form:

Has improved following a downgrade. Followed up a close third racing midfield over the Valley with a held up until the 200m sixth over the Sha Tin 1,800m. Trip's worth a try. --3

Star Form:

Improved at this level to finish thereabouts three times over this course, then came from behind midfield in a dead-heat second, a neck by Spinning Dancer over the Valley mile. Trip's a query. --3

1977 -23BC. W. Chang512933+5J. Moreira53.7*3.41.5

Star Form:

Threatening with placings in four of his opening six Valley starts, including a runner-up result over this C&D, then came from midfield to salute over the Valley 1,800m. Must consider. --5

Star Form:

Folded following a handy run when resuming over the Sha Tin 1,800m, then rallying seventh over the Valley mile before a flat midfield effort 14-days back. Seems to want this sort of trip. --3

Star Form:

Has come right with seconds on the pace up to 1,800m at both tracks in his past three of eight starts this term. The one to catch but needs to be taken on trust over this trip. --4

11072 0BW. Y. So5123 +327-1M. F. Poon -3830326.6

Star Form:

At his best in front for fifth over the Sha Tin 1,800m in October and last time out from five starts this term. Likely to struggle over this trip. --2

11024 -9XBC. Fownes811923+2M. Chadwick1012133.5

Star Form:

Still to salute this term but has earned pay slips in four of nine starts, including a season best second 11-days back over the Sha Tin 1,800m. A C&D winner in March off a higher mark. --4

金禧足球 (A085)
11014 -11D. Ferraris511519-2G. van Niekerk1114154.4

Star Form:

Just a rallying fifth three back over the 1,800m from five starts this term. Faded to beat only one galloper saving ground in midfield latest. Hard to recommend. --2

Star Form:

Sits equal ninth among the worst horses in training. Did nothing going back from a wide gate in his season debut over the Valley mile, then beat one after a deep run over the Sha Tin 1,800m. --2

Come On Wongchoy made it seconds with a front-running, half-length effort behind rival The Joy Of Giving latest over the 1,800m. He'll need to be taken on trust over this trip but should have options from gate three under Zac Purton and can turn the tables. The Joy Of Giving finally delivered with Joao Moreira steering last start after placing in four of six earlier runs, including a distant C&D second behind Clement Legend, who's since won three times more, and remains the main danger. Sweet Bean isn't genuine but can bob up now and then, including a closing second latest over the Sha Tin 1,800m, and his last success was over this C&D off a mark of 30 in March. Old-timer Wealthy Fortune's a win line risk but has given a better sight on or near the speed in his past two starts and Karis Teetan should give him every chance from gate four.
