11120 -3B/TTD. Ferraris8133 +1660Z. Purton7119.82.7

Star Form:

Veteran just prevailed racing one-out, one-back in a good form race over the Valley 1,800m at his fourth run this term, then was a closing fourth up in grade off a light weight over the Valley 2,200m. Past Sha Tin winner. --4

Star Form:

Nearly won his initial Class Four run over the Valley mile in October, then struggled back in Class Three twice before a dull midfield run over the AWT mile in this grade. Trip's a query. --3

Star Form:

Still to get the hang of things in his three Class Threes on both surfaces up to a mile this term, then beat nearly half the field following a downgrade over the Valley 1,650m. Bred to want this sort of trip. --2

Star Form:

Has hit the line better for fourths in his past two starts over the Sha Tin 1,800m at this level from five starts this term. Good effort latest in a biased-for-speed race. Trip's not a problem. --5

11013 -5BP. F. Yiu5127 -254+1T. Piccone105.55.02.1

Star Form:

Has run very well in defeat in his opening four Sha Tin runs this term, then out-dashed Joy Master for a 1,600m win from a wide gate before filling the frame behind Starship. Trip's a mystery. --4

11017 -9BJ. Moore4126 -153S. De Sousa34.54.21.5

Star Form:

Followed up thirds once on each surface with a handily-ridden C&D win, then added another over the Valley 2,200m before a faltering sixth stalking the speed from a wide gate over the Sha Tin 1,800m. --4

Star Form:

Came right to place once at each track over the 1,800m, then produced a well-timed win over the Valley 1,800m before running on well without menacing in two of his next three starts. Place hope. --4

Star Form:

In the mix in his past three starts over the Valley mile. Just failed to salute stalking the speed two back, then non-threatening fourth following a midfield run. Bred to get this trip. --3

Still to pick up a pay slip in his seven starts at both tracks this term. Beat a few after going back from a wide gate in a race run to suit those up front 14 days back over the Sha Tin 1,800m. --2

No better than a one-paced sixth racing handy over the Valley mile two back from five starts. Gone 150m out after finding the front 750m out latest. See better first. --2

PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Villa Fionn needs to be taken on trust over this trip and will be towards the back from a wide gate but has been hitting the line very well up to a mile in his six starts this term, including a win two back, and continues to shine in his trackwork. He's an each-way chance. London Hall was the best of those to come from out back in a recent fourth to Cheerful Star over the Sha Tin 1,800m and placed in his lone 2,000m run in June. He can run over the top of them if Joao Moreira can get him nicely covered away in midfield from a wide gate. Above did win three back over this C&D among his two victories from his past three starts and should have the option of leading or taking the sit from gate three. He can have a say in the finish. Magnetism followed up a prominently ridden win two back over the Valley 1,800m with a good fourth up in grade over the Valley 2,200m. Zac Purton's ridden him once for a win and he can place despite top weight.

TROUBLE IN RUNNING

MAGNETISM (V114)approaching the 50M rider momentarily dropped his left rein - Race 276 MURRAY'S PARTNERS (B426)at the start shifted out and made contact with a runner - Race 318 GOOD DAYS (A333)near the 100M was shifted in away from heels - Race 309 PRESIDENT STAR (C170)near the 50M was shifted out abruptly away from heels - Race 223

TRACKWORK HIGHLIGHT

Above hit the line nicely to take out a recent Conghua trial.
