Verdict

It may be worth taking a chance with #3 Primero. John Moore's Australian import has performed better than it appears on paper in three starts to date, and he looks the type who could take a step forward quickly. He gets onto the dirt for the first time, and his sire Northern Meteor has produced a number of horses that have handled the surface, like Primero's stablemates Happy Meteor and Respect. In an open race, he's worth a flyer. #2 Star Of Yan Oi has been very consistent this season. Matthew Poon jumps aboard now, getting the horse's weight down to 121 pounds. He'll be around the mark. #10 Sunny Dragon has slowly acclimatised to Hong Kong racing since arriving from Sydney, and his last two efforts over the Happy Valley 1200m have been very good. He returns to dirt here, but he does get Joao Moreira aboard from a good draw. He's a chance. Debutant #5 Dollar Reward won only one of his nine starts in the UK, but his best results came on synthetic surfaces. He has trialled well on the Sha Tin all-weather track and is worth watching with only 115 pounds on his back.
