Race 1: Mr Award Handicap

#6 Telecom Missile can win again. He pieced it all together nicely last start and once again does appear well placed. #14 Winning Warrior looks better than his record suggests. Suspect he can roll forward and show something from the front. #1 Lucky Maryknoll turned in a career-best second last time out at 36/1. She's open to further improvement. #4 Spicy Grill soared to an unlikely win from the rear of the field last month. He gets his chance.

Race 2: Big Profit Handicap

#3 The Anomaly won well on debut but since then he has appeared to struggle. Still, this time he draws well and does look a strong chance to bounce back. #2 Harmony Win Win is an improving type. Jerry Chau and Douglas Whyte have been on fire of late and their good fortune can continue here. #4 Universal Go Go is competitive in his spot. #10 Ultimate Glory is after back-to-back wins. Don't discount.

Race 3: Medic Kingdom Handicap

#1 Jiangxi Stamina is racing well in Class 5. He looks to have found his grade and with the right run he is more than capable of getting on the board. #5 Formula Excel is on the steady improve. The solid gate and Joao Moreira ensures he gets his chance. #4 Golden Four just needs to offset the awkward gate but is racing well in this grade. #10 Even Keel has claims down the handicap.

Race 4: Victory Marvel Handicap

#1 My Ecstatic is consistent in his spot. He draws well and looks a leading chance if he can find a spot close to the speed. #3 G One Excellent logged an impressive third on debut. He draws well and gets his chance to perform again. #8 Touch Faith has mixed his form so far but clearly does have the ability. Expect another bit of improvement here although gate 14 is hard. #10 Plikclone rarely runs a bad race. Gate two suits and he's a player.

Race 5: Entrapment Handicap

#4 Lucky With You is a supreme talent on the rise. He logged an impressive first-up second and off that run, with further improvement, he shapes as the one they have to run down. #11 Treasure Of Field is showing signs of improvement. Don't discount him with added improvement. #14 Millennium Falcon mixes his form. He's shown flashes of talent and if he's a price, he might well be worth supporting on an each way basis. #1 Sky Show has the class edge here. He comes from the right stable and has the right jockey engaged. 

Race 6: All You Wish Handicap

#7 Green Envy won well over the course and distance two starts ago. He steps back out to his preferred trip here and looks the one to beat. #11 Brilliant China is closing in on some form. Suspect he can improve further off the back a solid runner-up effort last out. #3 Gracylove was a solid winner two starts ago. He draws favourably and gets his chance again from gate one. #4 Zone D closed off nicely for fourth last time out. He's in with a chance again.

Race 7: Solar Hei Hei Handicap

Suprisingly, #2 Super Elegance is still without a win. He's back in Class 4 now and is showing signs that the step up to 2000m is what he is after. #7 Swot Troopers Wind won well last start from the front. Suspect he rolls forward and tries the same again. #9 Dragon Commander is looking for back-to-back wins. He can make his presence felt yet again. #6 Kungfumaster Panda is competitive in his spot. Don't discount him over these distances.

Race 8: Sha Tin Mile Trophy Handicap

#3 Fast Most Furious won this race last year. He's racing well and from the good gate with Vincent Ho engaged, he should get his chance to go back-to-back. #2 Rattan gets a handy claim from apprentice Jerry Chau. He's been competitive over the mile in the past and it wouldn't surprise to see him put in a bold run here. #8 Beauty Smile is a smart little chestnut. Suspect he can figure here. #4 Reliable Team could well roll forward and give them something to chase. He's the value prospect in a deep race who might be worth supporting on a win and place line.

Race 9: Pingwu Spark Handicap

#3 Ima Single Man dashed clear for a tidy win last time out. He's found form and looks well placed to snatch another triumph here. #9 Big Brook has ability and might be value among this field. He's worth an each way play off the back of a solid effort last time out. #10 Drops Of God won well on debut and has since held his condition nicely. He's a chance once again, especially with Joao Moreira retaining the ride. #5 Sauvestre steps out for his debut. He's looked good in his trials and is worth keeping safe.

Race 10: Hong Kong Racehorse Owners Association Trophy Handicap

#2 Stronger steps out off the back of a narrow defeat at G3 level last start. He steps back in grade here and from the good gate he looks well placed to go on with it. #1 Computer Patch should roll forward and find the front. He'll prove difficult to reel in. #7 Lucky Patch is an emerging talent. This is a big step up but he gets a handy pull in the weights. #4 Voyage Warrior is next best.

Race 11: Contentment Handicap

#6 Blaze Warrior is two-for-two and showing an immense amount of ability already. He steps up to 1400m which is never easy but he looks to have built a solid enough grounding to suggest that he will handle it with relative ease. #2 Uncle Steve is nothing short of consistent, even if he doesn't exactly win out of turn. He comes from the right barn and commands a stack of respect. #9 Team Power is looking for back-to-back wins. Keep safe. #1 Craig's Star is next best.
