summary


There are two horses from our Sweet In Defeat (SID) file contesting this race and depending on the market should be strongly considered to back to win. Firstly, CITY LEGEND, who arguably should have won first-up off a slow tempo, was terrific in defeat (second) when posting the eighth-best final-400m of the meeting. He will come up relatively short in the market and the wide gate is certainly a negative factor. City Legend renews his rivalry with HINYUEN SWIFTNESS, the latter of which naturally has claims following his dogged win. SUPREME WITNESS was the other that made our SID file given his last start when on the back of a VERY solid tempo he battled bravely and still won. His chances in this race will depend on how hard he has to work through the first half of the race. FLYING QUEST is a genuine contender; he maps well and closed with a 0.02 faster final-400m than City Legend on Sep 9 albeit off a slightly slower tempo overall and over a shorter trip.
