Race 1: L’Oreal Paris Handicap

#4 Super Contented was sound first-up. Predicting he can improve sharply with that run under his belt, especially as he made a nice amount of ground up down the outside of the track that day. The apprentice takes a crucial 10 pounds off his back. #5 Casa Legend has the awkward draw to overcome. He tends to settle at the rear, so it shouldn’t prove too much of a hindrance, especially with Zac Purton engaged. #3 Noble One has returned in ideal form this season. #6 Apex Top can lead as he has done previously. Keep safe.


Race 2: Grace One Handicap

#7 Meepmeep makes his debut following an eye-catching barrier trial at Sha Tin. He looks to have his fair share of ability and this contest is well within his grasp, especially with Zac Purton up. #6 Joyful Life is another debutant. He’s doing well ahead of his first race and should get his opportunity here. He has ability. #2 I Give continues to raise the bar and he’ll be able to offset the wide gate with his early speed. He’s tough, honest and he should be in the money again. #10 Massive Talent is improving and has claims.


Race 3: Kate Tokyo Handicap

#12 Wunderbar debuts for John Size. He’s looked well and has an ideal draw for his first-up assignment, which doesn’t appear short of competitive. He’s been working well and his latest trial was sound. He’s worth a shot. #7 Parents’ Love has trialled well and looks to have plenty of early ability and speed. Expecting he rolls to the front here for the in-form Angus Chung, who takes a favourable seven pounds off with his apprentice claim. #11 Woodfire Champ can improve after a solid first-up effort. #4 Multisuper is next best.


Race 4: Canmake Tokyo Handicap

#7 Master Hero is racing well and remains fit enough to win this contest. He’s in the right vein of form and the seven pounds coming off is a big help from Angus Chung who, scored a midweek treble. #10 Aestheticism has found his feet and comes into this following a pair of smart placings over the course and distance. He can continue to improve. #14 President’s Choice slots in light and is a threat. He just needs luck from an outside draw. #9 Pakistan Friend can lead this group. He’s in super form. Keep safe.


Race 5: Eleanor Handicap

#7 Happy Together is a superb talent and he showed that he’d improved a stack with the manner of his win last start. Slight concern about the tempo this week, nevertheless, he should be able to find the right spot and challenge this group. #6 Ching should get the gun run from the draw. He’s a smart talent who, might just get the race run to suit. #1 The Best Peach continues to improve and Tony Cruz clearly has a high opinion of this guy. He gets his chance in a hot race. #8 Superb Boy can roll forward. Don’t discount. 


Race 6: La Colline Handicap

#5 Club Soda makes his debut following several trials. He caught the eye in his latest effort and if he manages to offset the draw, then he shapes as a leading player. Take a chance on him as he comes from the right yard. #8 Super Wise Dragon was impeded last start. He can improve following that effort, which saw him cramped for room late on while he was roaring home. #10 Natural Gold can race on the speed and get his opportunity. #1 Top Top Tea is capable and his latest effort was sound. Next in line.


Race 7: G3 Sa Sa Ladies’ Purse Handicap

#5 Running Glory is a super talent and he appears to be working well ahead of his return. This is a more than suitable contest for him, especially with Zac Purton engaged, to be winning first-up. He’s ready to continue his ascent. #7 Super Sunny Sing continues to make the necessary advancements. Expecting him to take another step forward here, even against stiff opposition. #1 Money Catcher has the class and racing pattern to prove a formidable opponent. #2 Encountered gets his opportunity. He ran well last time out. 


Race 8: Suisse Programme Handicap

#5 Pins Prince has returned to a competitive mark. He has a suitable draw here for Zac Purton and, his last two runs have been nothing short of sound. He can win. #6 Chilli Baba caught the eye with a fast-finishing effort last time out. He can improve following that performance. #4 Always Fluke has some class and remains in solid form following his win two starts ago. #9 River Views has narrowly missed twice this season. Expecting he rolls forward and give this contest a good shake.


Race 9: La Estephe Handicap

#5 Global Harmony has been trialling well and gets a good chance first-up to kick his season off with a win. He has a stack of ability and this contest is well within his grasp. #10 Lady’s Choice is chasing a third from his last four start. He narrowly missed first-up and can improve significantly following that effort. #12 Greenwich slots in light and shouldn’t be discounted. Barrier three should him see get a sweet run throughout. #3 Armour Eagle is next in line. He can mix his form but he’s good on his day. 


Race 10: Neogence Handicap

#6 Yellowfin was the victor of a strong race first-up over the improving Taj Dragon, who has since come out and won. This is good form and his racing pattern could see him prove tough to reel in. One to beat. #7 Green N White was impressive when winning last start. He’ll need to improve again in this grade, however, he appears capable. #11 Beauty Fit knows how to win in this grade. He hasn’t won for a while though, but he gets his chance here under a light weight. Take an each way ticket. #5 Good Buddy is next in line.
