關鍵時機 (C159)
+11124 -15BC. Fownes413360-1Z. Purton93.6*3.32.0

Star Form:

Was an unlucky head second to Not Usual Talent over the 1,600m in March, then has just finished out of the placings in four of his next five. Not suited by the pace latest. Dangerous at this level. --5

陽光 (A371)
11118 +8VK. W. Lui513259C. Y. Ho2109.22.9

Star Form:

Has faded after being positively ridden twice over this C&D this term but has let down nicely to fill the frame when switching off in his past four runs over the 1,600m. Can place. --3

活力飛彈 (B322)
11173 +19CPJ. Moore312956+6C. Schofield610103.8

Star Form:

Has had a busy but terrific first campaign. Added to two earlier Sha Tin wins with a box-seat success 11 days back over the Valley 1,650m. Needs to lift carrying more weight over a longer trip. --4

王者再現 (V156)
11108 +4VP. F. Yiu612855-2M. Harley14365210

Star Form:

Stayed on for minor cheques in 10 of 11 starts on both surfaces and courses, then looked tired in the drive to the wire in his past three runs at both tracks. Fancy others. --2

神州福星 (B326)
1996 +5SRF. C. Lor5127 +1054-3K. H. Chan -10536519.5

Star Form:

Got up for minor cheques in two of his first five runs this term, including a C&D fifth to Tianchi Monster, then failed to menace seven times, including his past two at this level. --2

君臨大地 (V192)
1987 -9SR/TTL. Ho712653-2G. van Niekerk317153.1

Star Form:

Veteran bounced off a bottom with a perfectly executed win over the Sha Tin 2,000m at his fifth run this term, then only two closing fifths over the same 2,000m from four starts. Minor claims. --3

閃電王 (V013)
11090 -2D. Ferraris712653U. Rispoli1119235.6

Star Form:

Notched a second C&D placing this term when just denied in the one-out, one-back spot by Good Days two back, then failed with every chance in a handy spot 11 days back at the Valley. Not genuine. --3

86/6/7/5/2/1GOOD DAYS
開心日子 (A333)
21105 +4B/TTC. S. Shum512956+5V. Borges116143.9

Star Form:

Not far from placing 11 times, then just out-finished by London Hall travelling fore of midfield over this C&D before wearing down McQueen for a win in June. Chance. --4

97/4/7/2/2/3CROWN AVENUE
榮冠大道 (V378)
11144 +8VC. H. Yip612451N. Callan824295.4

Star Form:

Has stayed on nicely to light the board in his past three starts on both surfaces from four starts following a return to visors. Merits place attention. --3

104/9/-/0/5/8/4BULLISH GLORY
牛精輝煌 (A118)
11085 +1HC. W. Chang612148-2K. Teetan1225244.5

Star Form:

Came away lame in his season debut, then rallied nicely to nearly place twice over this course from his past three runs for his new trainer. Exits a closing fourth to Ho Ho Feel in a slow 2,000m race. --4

119/6/4/3/6/2DOR DOR
多多 (C109)
11028 +12HJohn Size312148J. Moreira103.54.12.2

Star Form:

Yet to deliver in his 11 starts but keeps promising. Near C&D winner three back and came from midfield to finish a distant 1,600m second to Lucky Time last Sunday. Go close. --4

126/7/4/2/1/2GORGEOUS AGAIN
華麗再現 (V326)
11101 +7B/H/TTC. S. Shum612047+4A. Domeyer4108.92.1

Star Form:

Eventually recaptured his best form in Class Five, including an easy win two back over the 2,000m, then came home a close second to Ho Ho Feel at this level despite an unsuitable pace. --4

130/8/3/7/7/0FULL OF CHANCES
鴻圖機會 (A284)
11060 +4V/TT-T. P. Yung511845-2A. Sanna7364510

Star Form:

Timed things perfectly for a second-up win over this C&D, then disappointed with only a closing trip third five runs later from eight starts. Has been freshened up. --2

加州明雋 (B363)
*11101 +4B/TTA. S. Cruz4116 +343-2M. F. Poon -31328275.9

Star Form:

Never a really bad run but still no better than a grinding fifth over the Valley 1,650m in April from eight runs. Beat a few from near the back over the Sha Tin 1,200m latest. --2

Defining Moment has run some good races in Class Three - including a head second behind Not Usual Talent, who's since gone on to erase two Class Two records in victory - and will find things easier in this grade. He's a definite chance with Zac Purton steering for the first time. Gorgeous Again has hit a purple patch of form in his past few starts, including a closing 2,000m second to Ho Ho Feel latest at this level despite an unsuitable pace following a smart win in Class Five. He'll go close. Dor Dor has trouble winning but is coming off a closing mile second to Lucky Time last Sunday and is likely best suited over this C&D. Bullish Glory has been doing his best work late to pick up minor cheques twice at Sha Tin from three starts following a stable change. He's still got a fresh set of legs this term and can fill a placing.


SUNNY POWER (A371)approaching the 1300M was steadied when racing in restricted room In the early part of the Straight was awkwardly placed outside heels - Race 743 AMAZING AGILITY (V192)shortly after the start was crowded for room and then was steadied to obtain cover - Race 752 SUPER HERO (B270)was slow to begin Passing the 400M, whilst commencing to give ground, was momentarily crowded for room After the race was examined by the vet who said an endoscopic exam showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea The next day was again examined by the vet who said the horse to be lame in its left hind leg - Race 727 CROWN AVENUE (V378)after travelling a short distance, whilst being steadied to obtain cover, momentarily raced tight - Race 781 BULLISH GLORY (A118)shortly after the start shifted ground and then was steadied to obtain cover After passing the winning post on the first occasion got its head on the side, shifted in towards heels and became badly unbalanced After the 1300M got its head up when being checked away from heels - Race 752 DOR DOR (C109)passing the 750M was steadied At the entrance to the Straight bumped a runner when shifted out away from heels Then raced greenly under pressure in the Straight and shifted ground on a number of occasions - Race 792 GORGEOUS AGAIN (V326)shortly after the start was crowded for room - Race 752 FULL OF CHANCES (A284)near the 1300M was left racing wide and without cover - Race 598 CALIFORNIA LEGEND (B363)when questioned, rider stated that, from a wide barrier, he was asked to ride his mount in about midfield with cover if possible but not to ride his mount along to do so He said it was felt that, from a wide barrier, if too much use was made of his mount in the early stages, it may not be able to finish off the race and it was also felt that a midfield position would provide his mount with the best opportunity to close off He said in the early stages a runner maintained its position to the inside of his mount and as he believed that he would have had to ride his mount along to clear that runner, he elected to steady it and obtain a position with cover behind that runner making the first turn He said he shifted in further to be racing behind another runner after the 900M but was then again able to shift to the outside of the latter runner to follow the former runner after the 700M He added after being shifted to the outside of runners in the Straight, his mount then finished off the race well - Race 769
