Verdict

Raichu is racing well currently, although he's had circumstances against him at his last three starts. He has a good draw here and even with 133 pounds, he should be capable of getting over the top of these. #5 Scarborough Fair ran on well from an awkward position last time out. He's another with a good chance in this spot. #2 Treasure And Gold has just come up short at his last three starts. He has to contend with the outside gate here, which could make his job tough, but he's sure to have his admirers. #11 King's Steed still only has one win from 47 starts in Hong Kong, but he's shown signs that he can add a second victory soon.

Verdict

Great Joy has had very little luck this season and it seems extraordinary that he hasn't managed to break through for a win yet. He has the perfect gate to be able to make that right here, but he is a horse that naturally needs the breaks; if they come, he will be hard to beat. #6 Multigogo is a horse that is very hit or miss, but he's capable on his day. He should press forward from near the outside and if he can get it soft enough near the lead, he'll be thereabouts at the end. #3 Royale Elegance is racing well and a win is near, while #8 Play It deserves respect on his current mark.

Verdict

Peace Combination is a consistent galloper who rarely runs a poor race. He doesn't win out of turn but he should get every chance from the inside gate, either on speed or tracking the pace. He'll be hard to beat. #4 Flying Monkey didn't show much at his first run for Benno Yung, weakening out after pulling early. If he can settle better here, he's a chance. #2 Look Eras is, for the most part, racing well and he can't be overlooked. #12 Nashashuk missed the start badly last week. If he can jump on terms, he's a chance.

Verdict

The Sylph improved drastically back down in Class 4 last time out, running into fourth. This trip has always shaped as a touch too far, but he's racing like it would suit him now and it should be a fairly soft 1800m from gate three. #8 Glory Star mixes his form but he ran well last time out and this trip should prove more to his liking. He has the inside draw and should enjoy an easy run throughout. #7 Polymer Luck completely messed up the start last start and so his effort should be forgotten. His prior form had been good and another win is not far away. #11 Aeroluminance might need to get down in grade but his last run was OK. He's one for exotics.

Verdict

Oriental Elite has finished midfield in his two runs to date, but he's hit the line nicely in both starts. He is going to need luck from gate 10 but if luck does fall his way, he'll be right in the mix. #5 Gouten Of Garo has improved with every start and he's going to be racing his way out of Class 4 before the end of the season. He can take a step towards that goal here. #2 Bond Elegance is racing well on both dirt and turf and can snare a first win for the season if things go right for him. #8 Showing Character is worth inclusion.

Verdict

Double Valentine finished near the rear from an awkward gate last time out. The return to 1200m looks a plus now, especially with a good gate, and he can score his first Hong Kong win with the right run. #7 Generous Heart returns to 1200m for the first time since November. He did win over this course and distance in October and he deserves consideration here. #8 Wayfoong Vinnie has a good enough record over this course and distance and he can't be left out. #5 California Elite ran near the rear at his Hong Kong debut, but he can improve second-up.

Verdict

Encore Boy hasn't been able to produce his best in three starts this season but he looked something near his best in a recent trial. Now is the time that he needs to step up, but he is more than capable of winning off his current mark. #4 General Iron needs things to go his way to get into the finish but he appears near a win and he can't be dismissed. #3 Storm Signal didn't seem at home on the dirt last time out. If he can get clear running, he can finish around the mark. #11 Winning Supreme is racing well and can place from a good gate.

Verdict

Litterateur is far from the most straight-forward horse in Hong Kong, but he's also talented on his day. He's been well-placed by trainer Richard Gibson in this extended-band Class 3 and, with even luck, he should be right in the finish. #5 Chater Legend looked to be rounding into form before a hard-luck effort last time out. He's got a good draw once more and will be hard to beat. #2 Circuit Glory wouldn't settle last start but ran on well for third to rising star Ping Hai Star. He's an interesting runner at his Happy Valley debut, but he needs to learn to drop his head. #10 High Volatility is racing well and should be right around the mark.
