summary


This event seems void of a natural leader and even the debutant MY DEAR has displayed little speed in his work. This seems a good opportunity for ASSOCIATION FANS to notch another win with his previous two victories coming over this course and distance. If he finds a similar position to what he did last start then he will be hard to beat. The pace was strong enough in that event (Race 267) and the mid-race move from STARLIT KNIGHT didn’t work out and the beaten margin was exaggerated, but the form out of that race stacks up well with Little Island and Po Ching Treasure both scoring subsequently (note: IMPECCABLE FELLOW also had a hard run). THE SYLPH is the early favourite and his last win rated well, but we won’t be fooled. There was a brutal tempo on that occasion and he was the last one left standing. The booking of Moreira will ensure a short price and I strongly doubt he will win again. ENORMOUS HONOUR is a genuine contender and his figures are good enough to win this race but the issue is that he settles in a rearward position and his chances are somewhat tempo-dependent. He is however a three-time course and distance winner who warrants respect.
