At The Races logo Verdict

Regency Bo Bo is likely to be a heavy favourite here, but with five seconds to his name since making the step up to Class 3, he is a favourite worth opposing. The horse with which to oppose him is #5 Chung Wah Spirit. He has plenty of promise, but he's still trying to put it all together after arriving from Australia. He will be winning a race shortly, but he will need a few things to go his way for it to be here. Still, he has a sharp turn of foot and if he can display that here, he can win. #2 Regency Bo Bo is clearly the leading chance in here and has been consistent over this course and distance without winning. He's got a good gate and should get a soft run, so he will be the hardest to beat. #1 Hair Trigger is still acclimatising to his new home, but he has looked like he is slowly getting there and he appears capable of winning a race before the end of the season. This could prove his opportunity. Right Call is the logical fourth selection, but for exotics, it might be worth including #11 Sichuan Boss instead with Callan Murray aboard. He has improved with every run, although he was slightly disappointing over the extended mile at Happy Valley last start. The Sha Tin 1400m should suit.
