RACE 1 (,1800M)
6 Double Take has proven to be a good galloper on the dirt, with a win four starts ago and a close second last start.
7 Crown Avenue is racing well and has drawn favourably.
9 Sweetly Baby won well first-up two starts ago on the dirt. He bears close watching.
3 London Luckystar is performing well. He should relish the step-up to 1,800m.
RACE 2 (1,200M)
3 Viva Council could take plenty of catching with apprentice Jerry Chau’s 7lb (3.18kg) claim.
1 Regency Poet steps back to Class 5 which suits, as does Gate 3.
2 Sky Treasure has scored on the dirt. Although he has drawn awkwardly, he is a leading player.
8 Moneymore switches to the dirt after an impressive win on turf. But winning form is good form.
RACE 3 (1,200M)
4 Gold Comet is talented. It will not take him long to break through for his first Hong Kong win.
2 Golfman Star put in a career-best fourth last time. The inside gate and Alfred Chan’s 7lb claim suit.
7 Joyful Moments is a veteran. The wide gate may just hinder his chances a bit. 9 War Lord has been inconsistent since his debut win. Nevertheless, he has drawn well and gets his chance under Joao Moreira.
RACE 4 (1,650M)
3 Dragon Commander is winless from 24 starts. But he has shown considerable improvement this term. Moreira will be aboard.
1 Bulb Elite has trialled well on the dirt. It would not shock to see him translate that form at the races.
9 Sacred Timing closed off nicely for a narrow defeat last time. He can make his presence felt again.
8 Ever Strong is next best.
RACE 5 (1,200M)
1 Soaring Tower won with authority on debut last time. The draw is slightly awkward but he remains in Class 4 which suits.
9 Vector has ability. He deserves forgiveness for his first-up 10th. He can finish strongly if ridden quieter.
2 Excellent Chariot clocked a slick 1min 8.67sec last time over the course and distance. He can win his way to Class 3.
10 Voyage Star is best ridden in front. He is a leading player and should cling on to some prize money.
RACE 6 (1,400M)
4 Smoothies can prove hard to beat on his day. From the good gate with Chan’s claim, he could get his chance tomorrow.
1 E Star was a strong winner in this grade last start. A repeat of that win would not surprise.
7 Chicken Dance has returned in sound order from a lengthy break due to injury. Watch the betting.
9 Igniting is open to improvement, following a tidy debut third.
RACE 7 (1,400M)
1 My Sugar has shown immaturity at times. But he has talent. The draw suits and it would not surprise to see him go one better.
2 Cheerful Days is another with a stack of ability. This could be his first win of a fruitful career.
5 Diamond Rhyme got off the mark last time. He can figure again.
11 Sun Of Makfi has improved and can surprise from the good draw.
RACE 8 (1,000M)
3 Dancing Fighter won his recent barrier trial very impressively. The three-time winner rates strongly for the red-hot trainer Caspar Fownes-Moreira combination.
12 Joyful Fortune’s last-start second holds him in good stead, especially with Chau’s claim.
5 Valiant Dream has been consistent without winning down the Sha Tin straight.
1 Cruising has to lug the big weight but was a winner two starts ago.
RACE 9 (1,650M)
14 Skyey Supreme can roll forward from Gate 2. He will take plenty of catching with next to no weight on his back.
9 Party Everyday will need a race run to suit, but he should be able to finish strongly.
1 Touch of Luck gets a welcome relief in grade. He is back in Class 3. He also gets the apprentice’s claim and is a three-time winner on dirt.
2 Right Choice has ability. It is just a matter of using it to score.
RACE 10 (1,200M)
3 Red Desert is a two-time winner over this course and distance in this grade. He is fitter after his first-up fourth.
1 Will Power is shooting for his third consecutive win. The only concern is the top weight.
12 Sunny Boy has drawn poorly but is a dirt specialist. He can roll forward and make his own luck.
4 Encore Boy is next best.
