Centenary Sprint Cup Form Guide & Tips


1. Hot King Prawn (Best Bet – $2.20) Bet @ Sportsbet

Hot King Prawn deserves favouritism despite running seventh in the Hong Kong Sprint last start. He was beaten 1.6 lengths by Danon Smash, but that field was much harder than this.

He is an 11-time winner from 22 starts, so punters always get a good effort. The son of Denman is fitter for three runs back from a spell and getting Joao Moreira in the saddle helps.

Drawing barrier two is another positive.

2. Voyage Warrior ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet

The five-year-old hasn’t been in stellar form this season and he shouldn’t be competitive against this opposition.

He is a five-time winner from 14 starts, but he was found out at Group 1 level last start, and this should be no different on Sunday.

3. Jolly Banner (Best Each Way – $15) Bet @ Sportsbet

Jolly Banner ran out of his skin to finish second in the Group 1 Hong Kong Sprint last start. He was an $81 chance, but ran only a half-length behind Danon Smash.

There is no better form guide than that, and although it won’t be easy to replicate the effort, he shouldn’t be overlooked again.

Punters get value odds for the capable type.

4. Wishful Thinker ($13) Bet @ Sportsbet

The seven-year-old wasn’t far behind them last start and he has been respected in the markets for this race.

He was under a length behind Danon Smash, and he owns enough experience to improve on that effort.

Drawing barrier five is ideal and he could be a first-four player.

5. Computer Patch (Best Each Way – $5) Bet @ Sportsbet

His form since arriving in the top grades hasn’t been as impressive as his early form. However, having had the extra run since the Hong Kong Sprint should help.

Computer Patch finished fifth of five runners last start, but he didn’t enjoy carrying 60.5kg. Dropping in weight helps and we’re confident of a good run.

6. Fat Turtle ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet

Fat Turtle hasn’t shown his best this season and although talented on his day, he shouldn’t be finishing in the money.

The six-year-old son of Smart Missile finished fourth in the Group 3 Challenge Cup last start, and he would need to find a few lengths on that effort.

7. Big Party ($11) Bet @ Sportsbet

Frankie Lor lines up the five-year-old that ran third at Sha Tin last start, but he’s another that needs to lift considerably.

He finished well down the track in the Hong Kong Sprint, and he has 8.5 lengths to make up on that effort.

We can’t have him in selections, especially at $11.

8. Amazing Star ($8.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

The single-figure odds are a little surprising, given that he finished fourth in a five-horse field last start.

He also ran five lengths behind Danon Smash in the HK Sprint, so he would need to improve. His best performance this season came at Happy Valley, so the $8.50 is too short.

We had him priced at $15.

9. Stronger ($11) Bet @ Sportsbet

Stronger finished second in a good form race last start and he shouldn’t be ruled out as a trifecta chance.

The four-year-old has yet to win in Group company, but he is still improving. Only one of his nine starts at Sha Tin have resulted in a win, but don’t overlook his chances.

10. Buddies ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet

Buddies is a seven-time winner, but most of those wins have come against easier opposition. He would need to find around five lengths to go close.

Punters get generous odds, but wait until he finds something easier.

11. Regency Legend ($51) Bet @ Sportsbet

Big odds available for a runner that will struggle to finish in the first half of the field. He can’t be added to selections.
