R10 SALISBURY HANDICAP

Sha Tin (M25) - Sunday, 2 December 2018

17:45 HK TIME

summary


I’m quite keen on MR SO AND SO to run well at the third time of asking in this grade. He maps nicely on the back of the speed and when ridden with patience first up this prep he ran well against a stronger line up. He had excuses (lame) last time and the switch back to Sha Tin is a major positive. TAKING AIM won well last start and his that performance rates him clear of his rivals here, although, he was well-enough exposed prior to make me wonder about the true value of that performance. HOME RUN made the SID file and he will be worth a small wager as insurance and he does come through the same form line as Taking Aim. He’ll just need a touch of luck from a tricky draw. SEVENTY SEVENTY can run well based on his last effort behind Noble Steed where he hit the line very strongly. Two horse though are worth outlaying on here, Mr So And So and Home Run.

SUN TOUCH appears as though he might lead again here from TAKING AIM. MR SO AND SO maps to trail the main speed and RELENTLESS ME is not drawn well but could well follow Taking Aim across from his wide barrier.
