R10 RAPPER DRAGON HANDICAP

Sha Tin (M55) - Sunday, 17 March 2019

17:50 HK TIME

summary


One of the best bets on the card races here, TORNADO TWIST. Going to Happy Valley didn’t suit him last start, but his Sha Tin form is hard to fault and I believe he can bounce back here. The rise in class is a bonus (he now carries 4.5kg less weight) and he was clearly the run of the race last time, against a field that has subsequently seen Sumstreetsumwhere (sixth), Flat Heaven (eighth), Water Diviner (10th) and High Five (12th) all win since. He will be hard to beat and it’s probably worth taking the early corporate odds, as I’d say he might shorten further with all-up support on the tote. ENCOURAGING is holding his form well and has claims again. His form lines have plenty of depth to them also. MONGOLIAN KING comes back in trip but his recent efforts have rated well, his issue is where he might get to in the running. While REGENCY BO BO might be a touch of overs, especially given he looks like he could roll across to the lead. There are other horses that can pressure him in the lead, but if he gets an easy sectional then he could most certainly cause an upset. Overall however, this is all about Tornado Twist.

speed


REGENCY BO BO can lead this race from the widest draw with BEAUTY ICON holding position from barrier 1 with KING OPIE and GOLD WIN not far away. ENCOURAGING could sit in the first half of the field, while TORNADO TWIST has a sweet draw for Moreira to take advantage of.
