PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Massive Pocket has hit the line well in both Valley sprints this term, including a recent 1,000m fourth behind the smart Grateful Heart, and he does have solid 1,200m form. He has the class to offset a big weight and will try to topple them late despite a tricky gate. Kurpany easily beat the in-form Flying Genius after jumping on time last start for a second win from four runs over the Valley 1,000m and there's no reason why he won't handle an extra 200m. Joao Moreira should give him every chance to repeat from gate four. Scores Of Fun is in a higher-quality test spotting each opponent weight but kept his chance of stealing the Million Challenge alive with a hard-fought C&D victory last Wednesday over Shouson and he can't be written off. Racing Fighter did win a Class Three over the Sha Tin 1,200m in November and produced a closing fifth behind the smart Beauty Applause from four runs in a higher grade. He is a one-time winner from six past C&D runs and is ideally drawn with his favourite rider Zac Purton aboard.
