R8 PYRAMID HILL HANDICAP

Sha Tin (M16) - Wednesday, 31 October 2018

22:55 HK TIME

summary


One of the better bets of the night lines up here, NUCLEAR POWER. He arguably should have won last start (race 97), made the SID file, and with luck in running can win tonight. Whilst he is still yet to win in Hong Kong, he’s run sufficiently well on the dirt in the past to say he sits on the right mark to do the job. GO PUBLIC won race 97 and his form this term is very solid. As you would expect he concedes weight to the four other horses he beat home then, but is still lightly raced and has some upside. LEAN PERFECTION is a progressive galloper who won a trial recently, but I’m not sure why they would choose an all-weather race for him. Keep him safe as I expect he has more to offer this season given he’s only had five starts to date. I see the main danger to Nuclear Power being STRATHCLYDE, who also looks the right price to outlay on. He looked excellent in a recent trial following a couple of luckless turf runs.

ENCORE BOY can work across to a forward position from an awkward draw. STRATHCLYDE from barrier two can take close order along with NUCLEAR POWER.
