Sha Tin (M29) - Sunday, 16 December 2018

15:40 HK TIME

summary


There appears solid speed in this event and hopefully that will play out well for FLASH FAMOUS. He ran very well in defeat over 1,200m at Happy Valley last time when off a strong tempo; he closed his race strongly (11.57 ninth-best last-200m of the meeting). Flash Famous should relish the step up in trip and also returning to race at Sha Tin. He won his only start in this class and looks primed to run well. The run from C P POWER 11 days ago behind Glory Star rated well and the three-time course and distance winner will also appreciate the likely tempo of this event, so he looks a genuine winning chance. If CORDYCEPS doesn’t get involved in a speed battle, then he has to be given plenty of respect. Given this is his fourth run this preparation, he should be spot on for this assignment and he is probably a deserved early favourite, although I have very little between him and Flash Famous. TOUCH OF LUCK is another contender, as he closed well behind Honest Way at his last appearance. He should he find a good spot from his handy barrier then he too can work into the finish. There is a little value amongst a few runners here and a small unit quinella could extract a little out of the race without needing to outlay too much and therefore be the best option.

speed


The pace should be GOOD here with HINYUEN SWIFTNESS contesting the lead with KING MORTAR and CORDYCEPS. MONICA is drawn to get a sweet trip with QUADRUPLE DOUBLE not so kindly drawn but able to be used to go forward and potentially slot into a decent position.
