R10 ELEANOR HANDICAP

Sha Tin (M17) - Sunday, 4 November 2018

17:50 HK TIME

summary


The highly progressive SUPERICH can make it four wins from six starts today. He steps up to 1400m for the first time, has drawn a nice barrier and maps nicely as a result. With natural improvement from his first-up run this term, he should take a power of beating. Superich overcame some adversity last time, taking an early check before sustaining a wide run through out. The clear danger is GREEN ENERGY, who posted some impressive figures (the fifth-best final-400m at the meeting of 21.90) when running down High Volatility (second since) with the blinkers and change of tactics helping him turnaround his form. However, he will get back and will need some luck in running (and tempo to suit). Much the same applies to DRAGON GENERAL, who continues to run well. He’s hard to back with huge confidence because of his racing pattern, but if he gets to a price, then you probably need a little on him. COBY BOY is another that should figure in the finish on the back of his second to Morethanlucky over the course and distance. The form has been boosted further recently with Citron Spirit (fifth that day) saluting first since. HARMONY HERO has the blinkers applied for the first time, which is an interesting move, it might help him deliver on the promise that he has shown at times in a short Hong Kong career to date.

speed


I expect the speed to be GOOD here with COBY BOY and CALIFORNIA JOY being the main pace with SUPERICH, if he jumps cleanly, being able to sit just off them. MY DARLING is drawn to race handy to the speed also.
