Star Form:

Hints of ability in his five Sha Tin runs. Peaked on his move 100m out following a midfield run in a recent eighth over the 1,400m. Valley mile is worth a try. --3

PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Zhan Jiang Rocks never clicked last start over the 1,600m from a wide gate but was knocking on the door in three prior starts over this C&D. He finally draws a gate and is the race sleeper off a light weight. True Grit made it look easy when beating Universal Go Go up in grade for a third straight C&D win and he remains a leading player despite a rise in weight. Cordyceps has notched a 1,600m win and six placings from his opening nine Sha Tin runs and had excuses in his initial C&D run earlier this month when held up at the 300m as the favourite. Gate 11 won't help but he clearly deserves another chance. Magnetism is clearly well rated off a couple of C&D wins last term and is coming off a fast-finishing third to Bigwood. He's a place chance at the bottom of the weights.

TROUBLE IN RUNNING

HARMONY HERO (B217)on jumping shifted in abruptly - Race 701 CORDYCEPS (B070)in the early stages was slow to muster speed despite being vigorously ridden Then after passing the winning post on the first occasion got its head up when awkwardly placed close to heels after being unable to prevent a runner from crossing At the entrance to the Straight raced tight when attempted to improve between other runners That resulted in the horse being awkwardly placed close to heels approaching and passing the 300M when held up for clear running - Race 719 TRUE GRIT (B232)passing the 600M shifted out to follow a runner - Race 701 KUNGFUMASTER PANDA (C153)near the 250M was severely checked away from heels - Race 710 TRAVEL FIRST (T098)was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards on vet advice (lame left fore) - Race 714 TANGMERE (B432)passing the 600M was shifted out away from heels That resulted in the horse having to be steadied, bumping a runner and becaming unbalanced - Race 701 ZHAN JIANG ROCKS (B406)post-race vet inspection did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious - Race 674
