R8 YUN PING HANDICAP

Sha Tin (M37) - Saturday, 12 January 2019

16:35 HK TIME

summary


RIGHT CHOICE is the horse to beat here. Both his runs to date have had merit and the rise in grade should greatly assist this lightly-raced galloper. Right Choice carries 8kg less (with a 4kg swing in his favour) this time than when he did when running second to key rival HAPPY FORCE with the former being fitted with blinkers as well today, a move to no doubt ‘sharpen him up’. Happy Force himself is unbeaten since the blinkers went on. Interestingly, he might not have to work that hard to cross this field and lead again and many will be banking of Right Choice gaining the upper hand, but this fellow is a genuine chance to win if he controls the speed has he has his last two starts. RACING FIGHTER makes obvious appeal with Purton sticking with him and the move up to 1,400m. That last win rated well and the form has worked out quite nicely since with Young Legend winning recently. HOME RUN is holding his form well but once again, he doesn’t win out of turn and is around his mark. ENCOURAGING maps to race in a good position and might also be able to get into the finish as a result. I’m comfortable backing Right Choice here with a smaller outlay on Happy Force warranted also.

speed


HAPPY FORCE can work across from barrier 12 to lead and control the tempo to suit himself. He has managed this at his last two starts and that has yielded wins. CIRCUIT HASSLER and ENCOURAGING are others that can position handy to the lead with RIGHT CHOICE securing a trail not far away from stall 2.
