Wood On Fire had flashed home for an overdue C&D win two back and did have excuses in a slowly run race 14 days back. He should find the pace more to his liking here and should get every chance from gate four. Smart Charade placed fourth in two of his opening three Sha Tin runs before making up heaps of ground late to go close to winning in back-to-back C&D runs. He's the main danger. Champ Patrol came right with a handily-ridden C&D win two back and wasn't beaten far after a ground-covering run latest. Gate nine won't help but is reunited with winning rider Joao Moreira. Dollar Reward has been hovering around the finish without placing in his five AWT runs this term and has produced an odd good run in the past over this C&D. He's ideally drawn and won't have to beat much to place.
