PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Vitralite is still acclimatising but didn't have much go right from a wide gate in his debut last month over the 1,600m and is dropping into Class Three here. He'll have Zac Purton to offset a tricky gate and is an each-way chance. My Sugar will be set a task from gate 14 in a higher grade but did beat a good Class Four field after driving forward to lead 1,100m out at his first 1,400m attempt latest following two short-head defeats over the 1,200m. He remains one of the chances. Ka Ying Excellent followed up a nice C&D win over E Star with a box-seat third behind Juneau Park. He'll go close. Star Of Yuen Long has been hovering around the finish in each of his six sprints at both tracks this term, including a front-running C&D fifth behind the smart Enrich Delight two back in a higher grade. He's a pace factor.
