Sha Tin (M60) - Wednesday, 3 April 2019

summary


COBY OPPA is the best bet on the card. He was particularly impressive over this course and distance two starts back when winning and he was far from disgraced on the turf at his subsequent outing. He has upside, and can take a good position in the running with a light weight. I expect that he should prove hard to beat and might even be asked to lead all of the way. ENCORE BOY gets a drop back to Class 3 and his record (13:2-3-3) in this grade is very good, as are his performances on the all-weather surface. The main concern is that he will be conceding plenty of weight to Coby Oppa who looks like he has a fair bit more to offer. The early pressure should suit TEAM FORTUNE who ran well for Moreira last time and he should be working home strongly, along with HOME RUN (who might be looking for a drop in class). The main bet here is clearly Coby Oppa.

speed


There is good speed here early with COBY OPPA, JUST NOT LISTENING and WINNING SUPREME all possessing plenty of tactical pace. ENCORE is drawn to sit just behind these three with TEAM FORTUNE being suited to the likely shape of this race.
