SPEEDMAP

LOOKING COOL appeals to me as the horse to beat in this contest. He has only had three starts in Hong Kong and his most recent, when third-up behind Running Glory was clearly his best. He found the line very well and now gets the pacifiers applied, a drop in grade and Zac Purton booked to ride, which all enhance his chances. Robot Warrior was very good when winning a slow-tempo race last time over 2000m, but he still produced some of the best closing sectionals at the meeting (11.56 final-200m). If he can land in a one-off spot with cover he can win. RIGHT AS RAIN also ran-on strongly when placed behind Shanghai Dragon in a race where most of those that raced closer to the front-end figured in the finish. Joao Moreira is booked to ride, and the low gate (3) might enable him to settle closer and be in the fight late. EEVEE is another horse that has been competing in similar events and is getting close to breaking through. He has a length or two to find against Robot Warrior and more to Looking Good, but shouldn’t be too far away. I like Looking Cool as the main bet here and Robot Warrior is too big in the market.
