R2 SINGAPORE RIVER HANDICAP

-


Sha Tin (M51) - Saturday, 2 March 2019

13:30 HK TIME

summary


JIMSON THE FAMOUS was a last start winner over the 1,200m on the all-weather track (AWT) and although that was only his second career win, it was on the back of a string of consistent performances on the surface. He has an extra 3kg to carry this time, which shouldn’t be an issue as he was dominant and should enjoy a similar run this time. That said, STRIKING MR C takes a drop in to this grade for the first time, has the booking of Joao Moreira and his efforts on the all-weather have all rated highly enough for him to win this event – he is the horse to beat. ADONIS is interesting; he has never competed on the surface but is bred to handle the dirt and he should land in a prominent position easily. CORRE RAPIDO should be working home well while DOUBLE DOUBLE actually ran okay at his only start this season and is now with a new yard. He might inject some value in to the exotics.

speed


The pace should be GOOD here with ADONIS leading from BEST RUNNER. STRIKING MR C has pace and that could see him sit on the lead or just behind the leaders with THE HAPPY BUNCH likely to punch forward early.
