PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Rookie trainer Jimmy Ting Koon-ho's three first-race starters have won and dirt specialist Flying Godspell can keep the streak intact following a solid trial win. Gate four will certainly help as well. Gouten Of Garo will appreciate the shorter trip after a solid mile run on this surface two back and was a nice trial winner. Expect a patient ride from his gate and he'll try to topple them late. Dashing Gainer will have opposition for the lead but was threatening to score on both surfaces in three late-season runs at this level and is drawn to give a bold sight. Lightning Speed makes his dirt debut but will likely come on from an opening day third despite a tardy break and the blinkers may sharpen him up.
