Starlight historical data/form

All You Know is a two-time course and distance winner who has drawn favourably for this contest. He's returned to a winnable mark after scoring on a similar figure in November, 2018. #3 Shadow Breaker is the likely leader who on his day, can prove difficult to reel in. #2 Focus is a classy on-pace galloper who will afford himself every opportunity close to the speed. He races well fresh. #6 Perfect To Play has had the benefit of the one run already this season. Strong booking of Zac Purton suggests that he is ready to fire.

Le Terroir historical data/form

Mig Energy is ready to win. He's steadily improved in each of his seven Hong Kong starts and the retention of Zac Purton indicates that he's close to breaking through. #4 Flying On The Turf mixed his form last season but did show glimpses of ability. His latest trial caught the eye and he appears forward enough to be competitive first-up. #5 The Runner is a two-time course and distance winner. It wouldn't be a shock to see him fight out the finish for a third here. #7 Jolly Good Heart was plain in his first two Hong Kong starts. A recent trial at Conghua suggests that he has improved between seasons and off that, he is worth including.

Tigerlad historical data/form

Smart Thinker caught the eye at the trials for his new handler, Dennis Yip. He appears forward enough to win first-up and the booking of Zac Purton only enhances his chances. #5 The One put in a mediocre trial but he is a much better commodity than that. He's in Class 5 now and deserves his chance after descending all-the-way down from the middle of Class 3. #8 Flying Monkey has had the benefit of the one run already this season where he finished third. He bears close watching although the wide draw does make life difficult. #12 Tigerlad is next best with no weight and the good gate.

Art Of Raw historical data/form

Virtus Star is still winless across 19 starts. He arrived on a mark of 52 in late 2018 and now, races off a career-low 20. He's drawn to get a soft run throughout which should see him with his chance over the closing stages. #3 V Chevaliers is an improving on-pace runner who steps out for the first time for his new handler, Manfred Man. Strong booking of Joao Moreira bears close watching. #1 Joy Master is a winner already this term. He remains in Class 5 which suits and is aided by the services of reigning champion jockey Zac Purton. #10 Royal Chocolate is a winless seven-year-old. He put in an improved effort first-up and it wouldn't shock to his progress further here.

London Luckystar historical data/form

Lightning Steed can find the front here in a tricky contest and from there, prove tough to reel in. He's race-fit coming into this second-up and from the inside draw he maps to do next to work in the run. #2 Jolly Honour was a two-time course and distance winner last season. He bears close watching off the back of a strong trial. #10 London Luckystar is unlucky not to already be a winner. Admittedly his best performances have come on the dirt but still, he has been very competitive over this course and distance previously. #4 Heavenly Thought is a tough on-pace galloper who recorded six top-three finishes last season and one win. He'll be in the thick of things.

Athena historical data/form

#11 Jade Theatre hasn't won since late 2018 but is a three-time course and distance winner. He's now at a career-low mark of 45 and with a soft run from gate one, he shapes as the one to beat. #4 Very Rich Man is the one who is going to be in front him, leading the field. He'll do a bit of work early from the draw but is capable of testing this bunch. #7 Hercules is much better than his record suggests. The booking of Zac Purton warrants respect now although he is going to do a bit of work from gate 10. A win is nearing for #10 Incanto Prepared. He'll be thereabouts for Joao Moreira and John Size.
