Race 1: Fay Fay Handicap

#6 Love Me More steps out on debut. He’s trialled well and looks ready to make his presence felt first-up. He’s worth taking a chance on. #2 Summit Cheers is looking to remain unbeaten. He’s talented and shapes as the main danger. #5 Glenealy Generals is racing well. He’s next best. #9 So Awesome falls into a similar category. He’s worth including.

Race 2: Super Satin Handicap

#2 Fantastic Treasure won nicely on debut. He’s taken time to mature and with even luck he rates as the one to run down. #14 Voyage Star slots in light. He draws well and gets his chance. #5 Galactic can figure with the right run. #1 Enchanting Start has the rating on the board. He’s slowly coming to hand but does bear close watching with Zac Purton engaged for this run.

Race 3: Akeed Mofeed Handicap

#10 Pakistan Friend can roll forward and play catch me if you can. He’s on the up and if he’s left alone out in the lead, he could well pinch another. #3 Vincy won well last start. He’s finally pieced it all together and with even luck he’s a chance to notch back-to-back wins. #1 Charity Fun is a lightly raced talent. He draws well and appears capable of bouncing back. #8 Above is next best.

Race 4: Ping Hai Star Handicap

#1 Charity Grace is racing well and is unlucky not to have won more than just the one race. He draws to get all the favours with Zac Purton engaged. #3 Master Hero won well two starts ago. It wouldn’t surprise to see him bounce back to form here. #2 Everyone’s Delight closed off nicely for fourth. He’s coming to hand again after losing form earlier this campaign. #9 Sparky Star is another who finished off nicely last time out. He bears close watching.

Race 5: Helene Mascot Handicap

#10 Stunning Impact has a stack of ability but is struggling to piece it all together. Still, he grabbed a close-up second which was full of merit last time out and he rates strongly to go one better here. #2 Leading Fortune draws well and is competitive in his spot. #9 Breeze Of Spring is nothing short of consistent. He gets a handy gate and is worth respecting. #3 Maldives is next best. He just needs to bring his form at the city circuit to Sha Tin to be considered a winning chance.  

Race 6: Collection Handicap

#6 Beluga closed off strongly for a close-up third last time out. He has the ability to finish over the top of these. #9 Kasi Farasi mixes his form but is a course and distance winner already this term. He deserves respect. #1 Beauty Legacy is inconsistent but on his day he has a powerful turn of foot. Joao Moreira takes the reins here and this is one of the weaker fields he’s faced in a while. #2 Amazing Beats is next best.

Race 7: Designs On Rome Handicap

#8 Courier Wonder couldn’t have been more impressive when winning on debut by over five lengths. He’s taken time to come back but his recent trials have caught the eye and this contest looks more than suitable kick off point. #10 Armor Star can roll forward and contest the lead. He’ll give himself every opportunity. #2 Water Diviner has the class edge. He’s next best. #3 Regency Bo Bo is competitive on his day. He’s worth respecting.

Race 8: BMW Hong Kong Derby

#2 Excellent Proposal claimed a thrilling Hong Kong Classic Mile and with the runs on the board as well as the wins, he shapes as the one to beat in the Derby. He’s given every indication that he is able to see out the trip and with even luck he can take this contest out after finishing a close fourth in last-start’s Hong Kong Classic Cup behind a crawling pace set by the winner. #4 Shadow Hero has been slowly building towards this run, improving each time. He’s a dual Australian G1 winner who has the class edge on this field but at times, he has looked a touch one-paced. #13 Maximus draws well. He’s likely to roll forward and get every chance. #5 Tourbillon Diamond is a one-time winner in Hong Kong. He’s been consistent so far and will relish the added furlong on offer.

Race 9: Luger Handicap

#4 Fantastic Way is looking to remain unbeaten with his third consecutive win. He remains in Class 3 which suits and from the front he could take plenty of catching. #2 Super Dobbin has plenty of ability but he is struggling to bring it all together. Still, he has a bit of class about him and with even luck he’s a leading chance. #9 Marvel Dragon gets the services of Zac Purton. He’s worth respecting, especially if he rolls forward. #12 Simply Spectacular couldn’t have been more impressive when winning last start. Still, he steps up in grade against a tough field of opponents which makes things tricky here. 

Race 10: Rapper Dragon Handicap

#9 Master Montaro is a two-time winner from four starts in Hong Kong. He’s on the up and the added distance appears to be a plus for him. #6 Reliable Team loves the distance. He’s consistent over this trip and he has the race-fitness behind to be competitive here. #1 Beauty Smile is another who appears to be on the up. He sits on the cusp of a triple figure rating which he will more than likely not attain very soon. #11 Flagship Glory is racing well. He just has the awkward gate to contend with.
