PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Adonis has been a winner waiting to happen in his past seven starts, including a neck second to Super Model two back from a wide gate, and must have claims under Zac Purton despite another awful draw. Golden Cannon has followed up a rallying neck win over the Valley 1,650m in January with close seconds in two of his past four starts and has proven form over this shorter Sha Tin trip in the past. He can have a say in the finish despite a tricky gate. Never Better is coming back in distance but has had a good break and two routine trials after getting up for an overdue win in May over the 1,400m. He'll go close. Richcity Fortune knows this trip like the back of his hand with three wins already this term and should jump and run from gate three.
