Verdict

The Full Bloom looked like he would break through quickly upon his arrival in Hong Kong after a promising third on debut, but he has not placed in 16 starts since. He now finds himself near the bottom of Class 4 and about to make the drop into the cellar grade. However, after a promising enough run last time out, perhaps he can get win number one before he has to tackle Class 5, especially with Jack Wong's claim ensuring he only carries 108 pounds. He should position handy and he can make his presence felt. #5 Sunny Orient is the first Hong Kong ride for South African young gun Callan Murray. The horse has found his feet at Happy Valley recently, performing well despite race conditions not being ideal. Now, he has to bring that form to Sha Tin, but if he does so, he will be hard to beat. Lightly-raced #3 Jumbo Luck clearly has talent and is still improving. He has been anchored by big weights at his last two, an issue again, and he does have barrier 12, but he also gets Joao Moreira for the first time. #4 London City led all the way under Matthew Poon last time out. Expect him to attempt something similar here.
