Verdict

Endearing ran OK at his first run in Class 4, making ground into third in a race that was dominated on the front by Matthew Poon aboard London City. Poon is aboard Endearing here, taking him down to 122 pounds, and that might be the key that allows him to get his first Hong Kong victory. #6 Spring Win steps out here for the first time since January. He has performed well on a number of occasions, and while he has an awkward draw for the first time in some time here, he should be around the mark. #3 Harbour Nova drops to Class 4 for the first time after lingering on the edge of the drop in grade for quite some time. He is not a straightforward horse but with Zac Purton aboard now, he is sure to attract support. #7 Accession Years has not shown a lot from the trials, but it is hard to leave out any John Size-trained galloper at the moment. He could pop up in what is a fairly weak Class 4.
