24 units Strategy

best outlay


1 HAPPY TOUR (rp – $3.40)

WIN (8 units)

The blinkers went on for HAPPY TOUR’S second career start where he easily accounted for his rivals. This progressive galloper remains in the same grade and should find the lead easily once again and will take a power of beating. The son of Snitzel has plenty of size about him so he should carry the weight and looks destined to rise higher in the grades.

Result: 3rd (-8 units)



9 COMPLACENCY (rp – $4.20)

WIN (6 units)

The wide barrier and rise in grade will put many off COMPLACENCY today but he was excellent when scoring at his last outing after settling handy to a fast pace. Today he might be able to get a good position with his tactical speed and get things a touch easier than expected. He can win again.

Result: 9th (-6 units)

best each way


12 JUST NOT LISTENING (rp – $4.50)

WIN (2 units) PLACE (4 units)

JUST NOT LISTENING has developed in to a course and distance specialist. With a rise in class and carrying a much lighter weight he will take some catching. He looks great value on an each way basis in a race where the early favourite might be over bet with Ting/Purton combining for the first time this season.

Result: 4th (-2 units) (-4 units) -> (-6 units)

next best each way


7 YOU HAVE MY WORD (rp – $4.50)

WIN (1 unit) PLACE (3 units)

YOU HAVE MY WORD had clear excuses in defeat at his last outing when making a mid race move on a fast pace. Zac Purton takes over the reins this time and the horse will no doubt strip fitter for his first up run this season. A more measured ride should yield a more positive result.

Result: 1st @ $4.85 & $2.10 (+3.85 units) (+3.3 units) -> (+7.15 units)

Overall result for 24 unit strategy

-12.85 UNITS  (54% LOSS)

The heavy rain during the Sha Tin program really influenced the track, it was a huge advantage to be racing close to the rail and on the speed.

Have Fun Together ran an enormous race all things considered. He missed the kick by a couple of lengths before getting held up at the top of the straight, and made huge ground late and wide on the track.

Superich was brilliant and he looks a galloper with a lot of promise. He maintained a wide run and was powerful through the line. Noble Steed also did a good job to finish second, he’s got points in hand for the new season.

Shining On and Sunshine Holiday never really got into the race given how the track played.

So that brings to an end season 2017/18. Congratulations to John Size, Champion Trainer and Zac Purton, Champion Jockey for their achievements through out the term. It will certainly be a different landscape with Joao Moreira leaving to Japan and I look forward to unlocking plenty of winners factoring-in next season’s crop of jockeys!

Thanks for following Hutchi’s Honkers through out Hong Kong season 2017/18! It was satisfying to turn a seasonal profit, that was the goal and even though it wasn’t large, for bigger players who are able to earn rebates via their respective agencies, it’s been significant.
