Sha Tin Tips – February 23
Race 7 – THE HONG KONG CLASSIC CUP 1800M
The re-match is on ! Hong Kong Classic Mile winner Golden Sixty will again match strides with his stablemate MORE THAN THIS in what is shaping up as a two-horse war in a race where the top four in the market are all tackling the 1800m trip for the first time. More Than This was coming off four-straight wins when he faced Golden Sixty for the first time in the HK Classic Mile and chased him all the way home, taking ground off him over the final 100 metres. The extra ground here should suit him better than his stablemate and the bagmen agree as he opens as the $2.50 pre-race favourite with Sportsbet ahead of Golden Sixty at $3.00. They have both drawn wide but they will drop back anyway, being back-markers. Zac Purton take the reins on More Than This for the first time and would love nothing more than a first-time victory on the four-year-old. The run home will be worth the admission price alone and I am going with More Than This to gain his revenge on Golden Sixty in this.
Race 9 – MEI LAM HANDICAP (CLASS 3) 1400M
Three Hong Kong starts for SEATTLE CHOICE have all been promising and the Tony Millard-trained gelding is now knocking on the door for his first HK victory. His last start effort was superb as he jumped well but was trapped three and four-deep without cover to the turn. Pushed even wider, he kept finding something and passing the 100m mark, he looked home for all money until Assimilate scored a miracle split and grabbed him on the line. Drawn ideally in gate three, he surely won’t be caught wide this time and Joao (the Magic Man) Moreira gets his first ride on the South African import. Fourth-up here, he should be at his peak and with a cushy run near the fence, he will be full of running as they turn.
