More Derby hopefuls on show at Sha Tin

Race 10 at Sha Tin is Class 2 over 1800m and features 6 horses with their eyes on the Derby.

Silvestre de Souza has extended his stay in Hong Kong in order to ride the John Moore trained Enjoying, who is currently on 4.1.  The Caspar Fownes trained Columbus County has looked very promising especially after being blocked at his last outing.  Zac Purton has the ride today and they are on 4.4.  Both horses have worked particularly well.

Super Oasis is a former NZ horse who won twice at G2 level there and also placed in the Aus Derby.  Joao Moreira rides for Frankie Lor.  5.3 current quote.

The other three are Amazing Beats on 9.5 for Karis Teetan and Paul O'Sullivan, Butterfield on 12.0 for Shum and van Niekerk and Savvy Nine 20.0 for Moore-Badel.

It will be interesting to see what happens to horses going to and from Conghua if the border with China is closed.
