PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Le Terroir has been disappointing after opening the campaign with back-to-back C&D wins but has shown more spark in his past two starts at Sha Tin and can deliver Peter Ho Leung a much-needed win with a return to his favourite Valley 1,200m. California Rad needs to defy a wide gate but easily held off Shamport after stalking the speed last start for a third win from his past four starts over this C&D. He remains one of the chances. Good For You has continued to find the line nicely to place in three of his past four starts on the dirt after easily beating Beauty Spark off a light weight in April for a third C&D win. He'll go close with the claim well-utilised. Speed Vision worked too hard tracking the speed from a wide gate in a recent C&D sixth with a return to the level of a front-running win over this Valley trip in March. He's a pace factor.
