R4 THE INDIAN RECREATION CLUB CHALLENGE CUP (HCP)

Happy Valley (M58) - Wednesday, 27 March 2019

20:45 HK TIME

summary


It looks as though the favourite FRUSTRATED will be hard to beat here. He landed in a good spot last start and proved too strong over the course and distance and the same thing is could happen again with him jumping from barrier 1. He has to carry 6kg more here but he is progressive and will get the right run. The rail being set in the “C+3” position should suit MR RIGHT, and his last win was sound enough. He can be in the fight for a fair way. TRAVEL DATUK ran third behind Frustrated, but he is a Hong Kong maiden from 30 starts. That said, if he can keep in touch then this does look a good opportunity for him to break through. EVERBRAVE handed up his spot last time and that was costly, but I’m not sure where he ends up from a wider gate (10) this time? He might deserve another chance at a good price but I wouldn’t go overboard. IRON KING has shown some promise from a couple of starts but he might need another outing with this being his first look at the city circuit in any capacity. Frustrated is the horse to beat, but very short. A very small win speck on Mr Right looks worthwhile here.
