summary


Notwithstanding the opening race being a Class 5 contest it is pretty weak. ENJOYABLE SUCCESS returns to the all-weather following three consecutive placings and his recent form has rated okay for a race of this calibre. He has a little gear change with the pacifiers replacing the blinkers and he might be able to post his first Hong Kong win at start number 22. JIMSON THE FAMOUS is seemingly in the best form of his career, albeit over shorter distances on this surface, but with an economical run from a low draw, he might be able to continue his recent run and might even be a little bit of value going off early prices. Whilst he hasn’t won over 1650m on the dirt, he has managed to place four times from 10 attempts. LUCKY WIN WIN is second up this term and would need to improve markedly on that effort over 1,200m almost two months ago. That said, his recent trial was sound and he prefers this dirt surface to the turf and was a decent rating winner (for this class of race) late last season. LEVANTE should relish the step up in trip, along with the drop in grade and he cold figure in the finish from barrier 1. All in all Jimson The Famous is worth a small each way outlay in the first.

STRIKING MR C can lead this event from LOTUS BREEZE and the speed should be GOOD overall. MASTER BERNINI, LUCKY WIN WIN and JIMSON THE FAMOUS should be able to settle close to the front-end of the race also.
