日東昇 (V302)
*11149 -17A. T. Millard513339-2N. Callan 927287.5

Star Form:

Stayed on well for minor cheques in two of three 1,400m runs, then failed to menace twice over the 1,200m following a lengthy break. Trip's a query. Recent trial winner and gets key class drop. --3

有衝勁 (T220)
+1984 -38E/PC/XBA. Lee713238Z. Purton 122.5*3.31.6

Star Form:

Threatening five times on the dirt from eight runs. Hasn't raced after exiting a battling fourth over the AWT 1,800m lame in February. Has trialled well. A C&D winner last season in Class Four. --4

葵涌老友 (A012)
*11169 +6B-/XB1/TT-R. Gibson5132 +338-1H. N. Wong -3 1329438.8

Star Form:

Returned to the level of an early season win at the Valley with three sound Sha Tin efforts up to a mile, then a Valley failure with excuses before a flat 1,400m run in May. Trip's a question mark. --3

大運舞台 (T256)
+11088 +18B-/V1C. H. Yip713036-2U. Rispoli 1416327.9

Star Form:

Only two thirds over the Valley 1,200m from 13 runs in Class Four, then only a third over the 1,600m and fifth over the Valley 1,650m with every chance in the run at this level. Has stamina issues. --3

五陵霸 (A311)
*11145 -13V-/E/B2P. F. Yiu412935-2K. Teetan 516123.8

Star Form:

Non-factor six times in Class Four, then flat sixth travelling one-out, one-back over the Valley mile at this level before a breeze-punching 2,000m disaster. Has since trialled nicely twice in blinkers. --3

雄得 (A105)
*11145 +12B/HC. W. Chang312935-5W. M. Lai 37015623

Star Form:

Never made an impression five times settling back from wide gate on both Sha Tin surfaces up to a mile. See better first despite a downgrade. --2

77/7/3/5/8/7DOUBLE POINT
通勝 (S246)
+11052 +15C. Fownes712632-2S. Clipperton 725549.9

Star Form:

Not easy to get right. Has only managed to pick up minor cheques four times to 1,800m from nine starts after a rallying mile win on the dirt in November off a near identical mark. Turf's not a problem. --3

人間尋夢 (V258)
+11152 -7K. W. Lui5125 +231-1C. Y. Ho -2 1029439.8

Star Form:

Ridden handily for a maiden win over the Valley 1,800m in January, then a one-paced 2,200m fourth two runs later before struggling on the dirt in May and a wet track last month. Not the roughest. --3

90/0/0/9/0/4CLEMENT LEGEND
文武傳奇 (B137)
*11108 -1B/TTC. S. Shum312430-2A. Sanna 618224.8

Star Form:

Did nothing seven times at both tracks, then made a good impression late down the outside for fourth over the Valley 2,200m. Might be onto something now. --3

小奇妙 (T298)
*11222 +9TTK. L. Man6124 +530M. F. Poon -5 4138.92.7

Star Form:

Early season 1,800m winner at the Valley has gotten on track to get up for thirds once at each track over longer trips after failing to menacing six times. Can't ignore. --3

時尚風格 (V163)
+11116 +1B/TTD. Cruz511622+1M. Chadwick 119.3134.2

Star Form:

Did nothing when resuming over the 1,600m in May, then a one-paced sixth over the Sha Tin 2,000m before finding one just too good with a mid-race move to lead 600m out over the Valley 2,200m. --4

136/0/3/9/7/5CASH COURIER
天賦致寶 (S417)
*11230 -7BD. Hall7113 -219+1J. Moreira

Star Form:

Odd good run from his 10 starts this term. Rallying fifth settling last from a wide gate in a suitably run race over the 1,400m. Once a C&D third last season off a mark of 42. --3

143/8/6/8/5/1LE PANACHE

11076 +1BT. P. Yung512531+6D. Whyte 2173.41.3

Star Form:

Placed in three of his opening 10 starts, then easily won following a midfield run over the 2,000m. Gate's good and will go close despite a rise in weight. --4

Best Effort has been racing well without winning on the dirt and was successful in Class Four last season over this C&D. He has a tough gate but has had three progressive trial after lameness in late-February and Zac Purton is a positive booking. He can save trainer Almond Lee's license with a win. Rock The Tree has gotten on track with closing thirds in back-to-back routes at both tracks. Early season 1,800m winner at the Valley is always a chance in this class. Little Fantasy closed well to place despite a hard run latest and should get a softer run from gate four. Cash Courier can produce big runs at times and Joao Moreira's a positive booking from gate one.
