Sha Tin (M31) - Sunday, 23 December 2018

summary


I think the Hong Kong Derby aspirants might fight this one out with DARK DREAM and HARMONY VICTORY. Dark Dream you have to take on trust in many respects. He comes through a race (241) on HKIR day where they absolutely dawdled, so it didn’t rate well but considering he was first up and over a mile, it was a pleasing enough run. However, I think the horse to beat is Harmony Victory and he is the play as well. The Brazilian-import will appreciate the distance rise and his final-600m (33.49) ranked 10th on the day where the best sprinters in Hong Kong were competing. He ran home 0.02 off Beat The Clock and Mr Stunning (Hong Kong Sprint winner), with a substantially quicker final 200m! He looks a decent bet again. Of the remainder, SUPER CHIC is racing well but has only placed once from seven starts at Sha Tin and might be vulnerable at the bigger track, with GLORIOUS ARTIST holding the same form line and capable of improvement off last start given the gap between races.

GIANT TURTLE can set the speed here and it’s not likely to be fast. GLORIOUS ARTIST can lay-up close with INSAYSHABLE and PRAWN BABA.
