Race 1: Panasonic Nanoe Handicap

#5 Regency Gem is a course and distance winner previously who rates strongly with the drop back down to Class 5. #8 Amazing Agility won well last start over 2000m and it wouldn't shock to see him shape up down in trip. #12 Blazing Partners gets a handy seven-pound claim from apprentice Jerry Chau. He'll be finishing fast. #14 Golden General is winless but he does slot in with next to no weight on his back and is aided by the strong booking of French ace, Alexis Badel.

Race 2: Panasonic Ih Warm Jar Handicap

#12 Comfort Life closed off nicely for third last start over this course and distance. Alfred Chan's seven-pound claim is handy and he only needs to replicate his last run to be competitive. #11 Sparkling Dolphin steps out in search of his second win for the in-form Me Tsui yard. He's racing well and is proving himself to be a handy straight course galloper. #4 United We Stand is ultra-consistent having placed in three runs this term. He should be around the mark again. #14 All The Way turned his form around to grab second last time out. He's worth including at the bottom of the handicap.

Race 3: Panasonic 4K TV Handicap

#4 Vector has been moving well in his work and his trials and looks ready to make his presence felt at his first outing. He gets the services of the in-form Karis Teetan and from the good gate he should get every possible chance close to the speed. #3 Rhapsody won well last time out. He's talent but the wide gate this time out won't make things easy, as does the added nine pounds he has to lug. #7 Inno Legend clearly has ability with Zac Purton sticking aboard for the third time and admittedly, he is showing marked improvement. He's worth keeping safe. #8 Breeze Of Spring steps out for his new trainer Jimmy Ting. He's racing well and is ready to jump out of the ground at any time.

Race 4: Panasonic Steam Oven Handicap

#7 Sun Sun Fa Fa has returned to racing well following a lengthy stint on the sidelines. He's had two runs so far and in each, has shown significant improvement. #3 Mighty Power is looking to snap a run of three top-three finishes. He's racing well and his consistency will be rewarded soon. #4 So Awesome is another who is racing well and is also looking to breakthrough following three close-up placings. Joao Moreira sticks aboard and he bears close watching. #1 Golden Four has to shoulder top-weight but is in career-best form of late without winning. He can make his presence felt.

Race 5: Panasonic Air-Conditioner Handicap

#3 Helaku Knight should relish the added furlong on offer as he steps up to 1400m. He's racing well and this should give him every opportunity go finally go on with it, as it does appear to be what he is yearning for. #2 Care Free Prince is a speedy on-pace customer. He can find the front from gate two which should see him expend next to no energy early. #9 Cheerful Days hit the ground running with a close-up fourth at his Hong Kong debut. Zac Purton hops up now and he deserves respect, especially up in trip. #10 Stunning Impact has ability and is better than his last-start sixth suggests. He can figure with a cold ride at the rear of the field.

Race 6: Panasonic Washing Machine Handicap

#2 Ever Laugh is a four-time course distance winner who, makes a welcome return to Class 4. He gets every chance here down in grade and although this does appear a tricky contest, he does get the conditions to suit. #1 Decisive Action has been competitive across two runs for trainer Danny Shum. He's a Class 4 winner previously who is competitive on his day. Strong booking of Zac Purton once again. #6 Family Leader rarely runs a bad race, although, the wide gate doesn't help his claims, regardless of his ability. #11 Apex Top is looking for back-to-back wins. He just needs to handle the step back up in trip to the mile, which is a slight concern.

Race 7: The Panasonic Cup Handicap

#1 Fast Most Furious is the class runner of the field who if, he performs at his peak, can take this contest out, especially as a two-time Class 1 winner previously. #4 Band Of Brothers is on an upward trajectory following two competitive runs under his belt this term. He's worth keeping safe. #5 Star Shine can finish off strongly with a race run to suit. Strong booking of Joao Moreira enhances his claims. #3 Buddies can roll forward from the good gate. His last-start win bodes well for this contest.

Race 8: Panasonic Thermo Ventilator Handicap

#12 Joyful Fortune is a talent having clocked a slick 55.07s on debut and if he manages to go anywhere near that time here, then he is clearly the one to beat. #14 Sparkling Knight is another sprinting talent. He landed a classy five-length success last term and since he's closed off nicely for a close-up second last time out. He's worth keeping safe as the main danger. #13 Kurpany has ability and his rating should be able to begin ascending. #9 Flying Genius is next best.

Race 9: Panasonic Ih Cooker Handicap

Zac Purton is looking to remain unbeaten aboard #8 Noble Steed, as the Australian ace is 2/2 aboard the Francis Lui-trained charge who was narrowly touched off by a head last start over this course and distance. #12 Awe has the ability and should be ready to improve second-up this term. #3 The Crown caught the eye on debut. He appears ready to take the next step this early on in his career. #2 Invincible Missile is better than his record suggests and the good gate could spark necessary improvement. 

Race 10: Panasonic Massage Lounger Handicap

#9 Entrusted gets a welcome step up in trip, especially as a winner of 2000m at Newbury pre-import in Great Britain. #5 Vincy is still looking for his first Hong Kong win, as he is currently winless from 23 tries, including seven runner-up efforts. He rates, once again. #7 Super Elegance is consistent and is deserving of a win, having finished runner-up a remarkable six times from 18 attempts, without a win. #4 Cinquante Cinq rates off the back of his close-up first-up effort. He just needs luck from the wide gate.
