R6 THE BOCHK WEALTH MANAGEMENT JOCKEY CLUB MILE

summary


The Jockey Club Mile will see a field of eight compete; with seven horses with a big job to do if one of them is to topple the favourite, BEAUTY GENERATION. It is pretty hard to bet against BEAUTY GENERATION considering he comes back to set-weights and has been dominating his opposition under handicap conditions. He will be a short-price and deservedly so. It’s very rare when framing a 100% market for Hong Kong racing to have one horse much shorter than $1.40, it’s nearly as short as I go. Essentially Beauty Generation would have to race below his best or be totally ridden against. A case can be made for SINGAPORE SLING who ran well against him when they clashed last time but he meets him 5.5kg worse at the weights. If having a trifecta, then SOUTHERN LEGEND and BEAUTY ONLY might be options to fill a minor spot, but there is no need to delve too deeply in to this contest.

WIN

speed


The main speed will come from THE GOLDEN AGE and BEAUTY GENERATION here and I expect the early battle will likely lead to a GOOD speed overall. Which rider chooses to hand up remains to be seen, but we know Beauty Generation can sustain some serious sectionals. PINGWU SPARK and SINGAPORE SLING should slot straight behind the two leaders.
