Sha Tin (M57) - Sunday, 24 March 2019

15:40 HK TIME

summary


The key race with regard to form for this event is MULTIMILLION’S win from earlier this month (race 482). Then he defeated GOKO (second), UTOPIA LIFE (third) and EAGLE (sixth). It will be harder for Multimillion this time given he is drawn low with there being an advantage to the outside, even though he can offset that quickly with his early speed. However, a couple of his rivals also meet him on better terms and that is significant. One of those is Eagle, who has the blinkers re-applied and that is important, along with being drawn on the grandstand rail. He was on the wrong side of the course last time and with different conditions, I believe he could improve markedly this afternoon. An obvious case can be made for Goko, who also has the blinkers re-applied. He and Utopia Life (third-up here) could easily close the gap on Multimillion. SEVEN HEAVENS looks the only other chance and he has worked okay since he missed a race due to being lame. Eagle is the each way outlay here though and an early price that looks way too big.

speed


There’s good speed in this straight sprint with MULTIMILLION the leader from BEST SERVE and PRINCE HARMONY. EAGLE and UTOPIA LIFE can sit close with SEVEN HEAVENS unlikely to be far away from the lead as well.
