PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Progressive Super Sunny Sing carries more weight tackling an extra 200m but gunned down A Pal from behind midfield to make it back-to-back wins following a step up to 1,400m and should be well-positioned to strike from gate four. Sinba lugs top weight from a tricky gate over 1,600m but lived up to a nice trial with a handily ridden success second last start over 1,400m. He is open to further improvement. Gallant Waking has taken his racing to a new level this season with two wins and two seconds from his opening five runs at the Valley before dashing nicely for fifth against fellow four-year-olds in a slowly run 1,600m race. He should charge late from a wide draw. Capital Legend was a smart winner on his Hong Kong debut over 1,200m before covering a tonne of ground in a defeat over 1,600m. He will need luck from his gate but is capable of better than his last-start ninth.
