R4 MAVERICK STAR HANDICAP

-


Happy Valley (M87) - Wednesday, 11 July 2018

0:45 HK TIME

summary


There are possibly two or three horses to “spec” here at their prices. One runner with a leading chance is FLYING QUEST, with the key being the move back up to a mile tonight. He is drawn wide and doesn’t have much early speed, but there seems to be genuine tempo here (although Wah May Baby coming out changes this somewhat) and he should be powering home. SICHUAN BOSS and GO GO WIN are both going well, their recent form is sound enough that either could win here with the right run. They map to sit close to the speed, so with an easy sectional or two might be able to steal the event. GENTRY is another horse that has been close-up his last few starts and he acts well at Happy Valley. While STARLIT KNIGHT is another runner that can sit close to the speed and appears to be a touch overs. There are many chances here, but I believe at their prices, small outlays on Flying Quest, Go Go Win an Starlit Knight are warranted.

GO GO WIN can find the lead here from WIN FOR CHARITY and SICHUAN BOSS. I expect that the pace will be no faster than GOOD. CHARITY WINGS and STARLIT KNIGHT can position just behind the main speed with GENTRY.
