R3 MORSE PARK HANDICAP

Sha Tin (M30) - Wednesday, 19 December 2018

20:15 HK TIME

summary


When SUPERIOR BOY comes out on top of the figures for any event, there has to be grave concerns about the strength of the race! He took an eternity to win a race and in fairness his last two runs on this surface have rated well and he can win here. But there is that nagging fact that he has only won one of his 33 starts. SUNSHINE UNIVERSE brings in the same form and he might be able to land the lead this time. He can run well again if he does. MARVEL JOY handles the surface, has the booking of Moreira and his run two starts back rated well-enough to give him some chance to notch his first Hong Kong win, but he did seem to have the race (157) at his mercy on that occasion. Perhaps NAMJONG INVINCIBLE has needed the two runs back this season and both of his victories have come on this all-weather surface, so the switch back to it seems a part of his plan. KIROV actually ran quite well over the turf mile last time and clearly prefers the dirt so it wouldn’t surprise me to see him fighting out the finish. This race though is up for grabs and I wouldn’t be taking too short a price about anything.

speed


The pace here should be GOOD with SUNSHINE UNIVERSE the likely leader from his barrier of 2 with MARVEL JOY and SUPERIOR BOY also going forward. There might not be too much pressure down the back so there could be a chance of an early move by a jockey.
