Hong Kong Mile Form Guide & Tips
1. Golden Sixty (Best Bet – $1.55) Bet @ Sportsbet
Betting against Golden Sixty has never been a smart move and we’re not about to back against it now.
The Hong Kong champion is riding a winning streak similar to Silent Witness and we can’t see him getting beaten here.
His last four wins have been closer than expected, but he continues to pull out all the stops.
2. Danon Kingly (Best Each Way – $5) Bet @ Sportsbet
The Japanese runner looks the best bet to beat Golden Sixty. The son of Deep Impact comes off a second placing behind Schnell Meister and that form bodes well.
Japanese runners are built tough and with six wins from 13 starts, he should be right in the mix with luck from the draw.
3. Indy Champ ($11) Bet @ Sportsbet
Indy Champ has been specked at double-figure odds after finishing fourth behind Glen Alegria at Hanshin.
The six-year-old has been right around the mark over the last year without winning. He is a big-race runner, so include in first four bets.
4. Waikuku ($11) Bet @ Sportsbet
Ruling out Waikuku is tough, so we’re not going to. He pushed Golden Sixty to within a nose in the JC Mile, which is top-level form.
He is a seven-time winner at Sha Tin, and with two runs under his belt this season, he should be ready to show his best.
5. More Than This ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet
It has been a while since More than This scored, so we’re not prepared to put him in selections.
The five-year-old son of Dutch Art finished 3.5 lengths behind Golden Sixty last start and we can’t see him turning the tables.
6. Salios ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet
Getting the inside draw is ideal for the Japanese runner, but his recent form hasn’t quite been good enough for our liking.
He finished eighth behind Danon Kingly two starts back, so he’ll need to turn that form around.
7. Vin de Garde ($67) Bet @ Sportsbet
Vin de Garde is another Japanese runner who was disappointing in the Breeders’ Cup Mile last month.
The five-year-old son of Deep Impact has talent on his day, but we can’t see him figuring in the finish.
8. Sky Darci (Best Roughie – $21) Bet @ Sportsbet
We have listed Sky Darci as our best roughie because he was only 2.5 lengths behind Golden Sixty last start.
The son of Darci Brahma looked good when winning consecutive races earlier in the year, so anything close to that is good enough.
$21 is well worth taking.
9. Excellent Proposal ($46) Bet @ Sportsbet
Excellent Proposal has won half of his starts, which is an impressive statistic. However, he hasn’t won at his last four starts.
He needs to get back to his best to have a chance, but the $46 suggests he’s not quite there.
10. Lucky Express ($81) Bet @ Sportsbet
We don’t think Lucky Express has a chance of finishing close to them. He won fresh up but didn’t follow it up.
The big odds are there for a reason.
11. Mother Earth ($23) Bet @ Sportsbet
She is another runner coming out of the Breeders’ Cup Mile, but we don’t think it’s the best form guide for a filly.
