R3 THE HKSAR CHIEF EXECUTIVE’S CUP (HANDICAP)

-


Sha Tin (M1) - Sunday, 2 September 2018

18:00 HK TIME

summary


Generally speaking this race is suited to those runners that are well-weighted and “on the rise”. Both JUMBO LUCK and WISHFUL THINKER fit the bill. They clashed at the end of last season when Jumbo Luck won over the course and distance in a high rating race and with the right run in the race today, the son of Reward For Effort can continue his rise through the ranks. Wishful Thinker is ‘out of the handicap’ but looks destined to rise higher and if the race is run to suit with the leaders not skipping away off a sedate speed, then he should powering at the finish. SOUTHERN LEGEND and WINNER’S WAY have the class and are proven at this level, but each might prefer a touch further and the allotted weight for each is a limiting factor. That said Winner’s Way has looked okay over 1200m even though those performances came in slowly run affairs.

speed


With FABULOUS ONE setting the pace up front the expectation is he’ll ensure a GOOD to FAST speed. CALIFORNIA FORTUNE can trail him with JUMBO LUCK securing a run tracking these two horses. SOUTHERN LEGEND can sit on the rail, about midfield, covering no extra ground for the majority of the race.
