summary


This looks a race where a smaller play on Mickey Rich looks warranted given he’s likely to priced be bigger in the market than he should be. The son of Sepoy can win this event if he’s able to produce a run similar to that, which saw him, finish fifth to Montreal last season at Sha Tin down the straight. His only venture to Happy Valley saw him absolutely slaughtered, but he has fallen to a very competitive mark now. SPLIT OF A SECOND and CLEAR CHOICE clashed last season (Race 580) and there wasn’t much between them when they did. Both have moved stylishly in barrier trials and their form at the end of last term was good enough for them to be able to go close to winning this contest. ALL YOU NEED has had the benefit of a run this season, has drawn nicely, and I expect that he will run well too.

speed


For a 1200m event, there isn’t an abundance of early speed on paper, however with many of the likely “go-forward” horses drawn wide, I still believe that the pace will be GOOD. LONDON CITY could lead from CALIFORNIA ELITE. SUPER EURO STAR can be ridden for speed, with MICKEY RICH a chance to track across from barrier nine and find position just behind these horses.
