R6 THE POLICE CUP HANDICAP

Happy Valley (M52) - Wednesday, 6 March 2019

21:45 HK TIME

summary


HELENE CHARISMA hasn’t won in 27 Hong Kong starts, but his latest run suggested he is ready to get that monkey off his back. He probably should have won last time but for striking interference at a key stage and this time with Zac Purton taking over the reins, he maps well and can atone. His recent trial was solid work and it looks to be his time – let’s hope so! NAMJONG PLUS finished ahead of him last time and his record over this course and distance (three from four) reads well, but I am not sure he will get the pace to suit, and from that perspective VIGOR FAME could run very well. Vigor Fame was particularly brave two starts back when on-pace in a quickly run race and he battled well-enough then. Tonight he will get a much easier time on the speed, which will allow him to fight out the finish. Both FAMOUS WARRIOR and RED ULYSSES don’t have a lot to find on recent form for them to figure in the finish. The former has a shocking draw however and has had plenty of chances to win in Hong Kong also.
