summary


This will be a race to play with plenty of pace on paper and two clear leading chances according to my assessment. Firstly, GAMECHANGERS, who arguably should have won two weeks ago when he wasn’t tested for the entire straight behind Young Legend, looks ready to win. He is well-weighted, maps nicely and should get the race run to suit at a track he handles well. WALDORF was terrific over the course and distance at his last outing when caught wide and working hard through out. His form this term has been rock-solid and if he can tuck in just behind the main speed here with some cover he can finish strongly over the top of them. These two make plenty of appeal at their respective prices. SEVEN HEAVENS will be popular with the market based on his last run over this track and trip and that form reads well with Telecom Brothers and SPEED VISION both with winning since then. And Big Fortune was far from disgraced behind Taking Aim at Sha Tin last start and with 49.5 kg on his back, he might take some catching in this one.

speed


The overall tempo here is likely to be on the FAST side of GOOD. AMBITIOUS HEART and SPEED VISION can work across from their wide draws with EAGLE holding position from barrier 3. BIG FORTUNE and PLAY TO WIN both have early speed that connections might want used.
