R1 CITI PRIORITY HANDICAP

-


Sha Tin (M47) - Sunday, 17 February 2019

13:00 HK TIME

summary


This is a relatively even race and there’s not much between a few horses and to a large extent the best ride might win. CLEMENT LEGEND has come up the early favourite on the back of four wins this season but I believe he is close to being on his mark now. It’s hard to fault his form, but it shapes as a good time to take him on. The two runners that I am interested in are FULL OF CHANCES and SWOT WINDICATOR. The former stayed on nicely over 1,800m last time when he posted a race-best final-200m (11.45) and he should appreciate the extra furlong. Swot Windicator finished ahead of Full Of Chances over the mile earlier this preparation and he too leaves the impression that the step up in trip is very suitable. HAPPY ROCKY is arguably better at Happy Valley, but he has run well at Sha Tin and I like the booking of Zac Purton. His only ride on the horse returned a second at Sha Tin. The claim will help BRING IT ON who remains in good form. All-in-all this is a very open race that I don’t suggest major outlays at all. I’m happy to recommend small specks on Full Of Chances and Swot Windicator.

There isn’t much pace on paper here with ISHVARA the potential leader from CHATER THUNDER. BRING IT ON can race close to the lead with GARLIC YEAH and LE PANCHE not far away either.
