R7 SHUN LEE HANDICAP

summary


Race 7 is another event where on my assessment it looks good to speculate on a couple of runners to beat EIGHTY EIGHTY. The son of Husson is more than likely going to come up under the odds once again given the booking of Purton coupled with some misguided hype around the horse itself. Eighty Eighty does map well and might win, but he would need to improve overall to justify his short price. SPEEDY KING is the horse to beat and he has been tough and consistent on different tracks and surfaces. He has also won first-up and maps well if Callan chooses to be positive early. SHANGHAI MASTER has proven to be a model of consistency and he too has serious claims. If he receives a touch of luck from a wide draw then he is an over in the market. BREEDERS’ STAR can fill a minor place; I’d expect he’ll be a big improver from the event, with BEAUTY LOYAL one to consider from a small sample size of runs. I’m happy though at their prices to recommend backing both Speedy King and Shanghai Master.

speed


There should be GOOD speed here with SPEEDY KING able to compete for the lead with EIGHTY EIGHTY and STAR OF JOY. SHANGHAI MASTER is drawn awkwardly, but might be able to work across into a good position, from JADE THEATRE.
