Sha Tin (M29) - Sunday, 16 December 2018

12:30 HK TIME

summary


There’s only a field of six assembled for race one, which is rather unusual in Hong Kong and the very short-priced early favourite CLEMENT LEGEND is bidding for three in a row. Karis Teetan has been making mid-race moves on him and he has been dominant in both wins in this grade but the figures have been just moderate and with more weight this time, he looks under the odds. A good case can be made for PENZANCE to beat him, as he is third-up this preparation, has the booking of Joao Moreira (who is the only rider to have won him) and he can cause challenge the hot pot. PEARL FURU ran second to Clement Legend earlier this term (race 163) and beat Penzance home that day. Last start he had excuses on the dirt and can make his presence felt under more suitable conditions this afternoon. Given Clement Legend is odds on in early markets there’s enough value to consider backing Penzance and Pearl Furu in the opener, however it’s a small outlay race.

There’s no pace at all here with PENZANCE the potential leader from PEARL FURU. WEALTHY FORTUNE can trail whilst CLEMENT LEGEND will likely settle off them before being “lit up” midrace.
