There's also a couple of competitive Class 2s as well. The first of these is Race 2, the Ambitious Dragon over 2000m with 9 runners. The ex-Chilean triple G1 winner Panfield looks to have settled in to Hong Kong and this is a great chance for him. Tony Millard has booked Moreira for the ride and they are on 2.5. Charity Go on 4.1 and Tianchi Monster 7.1 could go into the mix.
Race 3 is The Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup G1 over 1400m with 9 runners. Our old friend Waikuku is on 2.5 for Size-Moreira, Southern Legend is on 3.7 and our roughie is Not Usual Talent on 20.0.
Race 7 is the Gold Cup over 2000m and here we have another chance to watch Hong Kong's best horse by far in Golden Sixty who is of course odds on. Exultant is on 6.4 and we are going to put in Glorious Dragon on 13.0 for a bit of value, and Furore could go in a pick 4.
Race 8 is the Lucky Nine Class 2 over 1200m with almost a full field of 12. We like Red Desert here on 4.6 with Chad Schofield riding for John Size. Czarson has been working well and is on 5.3, Will Power has friends and is on 4.7 and Encore Boy 10.0.
The Classic Cup is for the 4yos heading for the Derby and is over 1800m and this time we have a full field of 14! Tourbillon Diamond has been very good to us so far and we hope he maintains the relationship – he's on 3.0. Excellent Proposal is on 5.0 and our slightly roughie is Sky Darci on 10.0.
