Sha Tin (M3) - Sunday, 9 September 2018

17:50 HK TIME

summary


Another smaller field by HK standards is presented for race 3, and for this grade of galloper a number of contestants haven’t been in the best of form. On paper, it looks as though it should be fought out between CIRCUIT NUMBER TWO and FRIENDS OF KA YING, with the former open to a lot more improvement than the latter based on their profile. Circuit Number Two was suited by the track pattern at his final start last term, but was impressive when winning and the former Victorian could be a Derby contender for later in the season. He should be hard to beat but carrying top weight will make not make it easy. Friends Of Ka Ying is well-exposed and in-form for the stable. He has the bonus of having Zac Purton on board, but ultimately has had 31 starts for only one win. The clear improver is CHEERFUL GIGGLES who has had a stable change and his work leading in to this event has been impressive.

Again this is a race where I don’t expect there to be an abundance of pressure. CIRCUIT NUMBER TWO should lead easily from CHEERFUL STAR. ENFOLDING might be able to secure the trail in front of FRIENDS OF KA YING.
