PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Atullibigeal just held his ground in midfield last month at Sha Tin but caught the eye in his opening two C&D runs when a never-properly-tested eighth to Toronado Phantom and fast-finishing head third behind the re-opposing Nicconi County. He must have claims. Sky Forever has trouble winning but has found only one too good four times over 1,200m from 10 starts this term, including a neck second to Rewarding Together latest over this course. Nicconi County dashed nicely with bags of money for him late to win a three-horse thriller on debut over the Valley 1,200m before a disappointing run at Sha Tin. He deserves another chance. Stormtrouper had reeled off seconds in three straight C&D runs, including a nail-biter behind Smart Idea stepping into Class Three two back. He came from well back for fourth to Seizing The Moment on a wet track last Wednesday.
