R10 SHELLEY HANDICAP


Sha Tin (M81) - Sunday, 16 June 2019

17:10 HK TIME

summary


Zac Purton and John Moore combine here with CHAMPION SUPREME who has come up very short in the early markets and outside of their impressive strike rate when they pair up, I’m not sure why? Although Champion Supreme was wide last time, he seemed to be beaten by SPLENDOUR AND GOLD on his merits and the disparity in the market seems too big. Obviously there’s a weight swing in favour of Champion Supreme and that’s a positive and he also might be a touch better ridden with some patience. SUPER ELEGANCE also comes through that same race (693) and there was plenty of merit in his performance. He closed strongly and was also hampered when looking for a run inside the final-200m. The NZ-import is yet to win locally but the son of Teofilo looks well suited here and might be the best option, along with Splendour And Gold if the early market prices hold up. If taking exotics, then both GIANT TURTLE and VIGOR FAME warrant some respect. Each has been holding their form quite well in races that rate okay and given they map to sit on the speed without getting much pressure to be there, there’s enough to suggest that they won’t be too far away.
