R2 FU TAI HANDICAP

Sha Tin (M49) - Sunday, 24 February 2019

13:30 HK TIME

summary


There’s just a field of six runners for this event and TIME TO CELEBRATE is clearly the galloper that makes most appeal. He was very good when third behind Good Standing (Enrichment was second and has won since) and this looks a weaker race. He is a galloper with a decent turn-of-foot and even though he doesn’t have much tactical speed, he shouldn’t be too far from the leaders in a small field. SUPERICH was disappointing in the Classic Mile and one could argue he didn’t stay the distance. Considering he was handy in a race with a soft tempo, it is hard to find any excuses for him, but his form prior was excellent and if you’re willing to forgive that run, then he can hit the frame. VICTORY BOYS drops back in trip and once again, if you’re willing to forgive his last run at the city circuit then he could bounce back. Overall though I’m happy to suggest Time To Celebrate as clearly the horse to beat here and a horse to back, without going too hard however.

This is a race where I expect that the tempo will evaporate during the middle stages. CALIFORNIA WHIP and EPIC look the leaders from SUPERICH and GOLD CHEST.
