R2 TSIM MEI FUNG HANDICAP

summary


This is another competitive race, but YOUNG DREAMER has to be given a decent chance to notch his second win. His first-up second over this course and distance rated quiet well, and from a low draw he can find a handy position quite easily and be the hardest to run down. EXPONENTS has been performing well on the turf and looks ready to win another race, the question is can he transfer that form to the dirt? M REBORN was an eye-catcher when he resumed this preparation and he had the tongue-tie applied, so perhaps he is ready to show his worth now. He’s been fair on the AWT so far though, looks to be running better now. MASSIVE MOVE is in contention, although he often needs the race run to suit, he maps well to track a fast speed from just behind midfield. The interesting runner is DRAGON WARRIOR, who is having his first run for Jimmy Ting. His recent dirt barrier trial was sound work, and the advice is to have faith in the market as when they have backed the rookie trainer’s horses this season, generally, the money has been right.

There should be plenty of pace here with YOUNG DREAMER, SCARBOROUGH FAIR, EVERY STRONG and GOLDEN EFFORT all contenders to lead. EXPONENTS can get a good sit behind them with SNOWHOOVES in a similar position, albeit likely to be wider on the track.
