R6 CHONGQING HANDICAP

Sha Tin (M7) - Monday, 1 October 2018

15:35 HK TIME

summary


LAND GRANT presents as a good bet here who should lead and might not get much pressure. He was enormous when setting a suicidal tempo at Happy Valley first-up and he did well to finish third. Land Grant rates well clear of his rivals on that performance and hopefully is better ridden by the 4.5kg apprentice this time. FAMOUS WARRIOR has changed stables but some of his form last preparation reads well and he might be able to enjoy an economical passage from barrier two. KEEN VENTURE has only had two starts in this grade and finished second in one of them, and he too has had a stable move. He needs a few things to go his way in the running however, given he’s a natural back-marker who is drawn wide to boot. VILLA FIONN has upside and is worthy of consideration if allowed to show his excellent turn of foot. He too is drawn wide though and therefore will need a touch of luck. KIRAM ended his last campaign as a winner and takes a step back up to a class where he has won in before; he’s a big price watch as he might go out over the odds. There looks good value in Quinellas with Land Grant, Famous Warrior and Kiram. If you prefer, then by all means create “a book” by backing all three to win in appropriate proportions.

speed


LAND GRANT can lead this event at a tempo that suits him, which should be GOOD, not too fast and not too slow. RACING LUCK can position just off him with a group of horses that don’t possess too much in the way of tactical speed settling off them like FLASH FAMOUS, FAMOUS WARRIOR and MCMUNIGAL.
