Centenary Sprint Cup Form Guide & Tips


1. Sky Field (Best Each Way – $5) Bet @ Sportsbet

The Caspar Fownes-trained gelding is a six-time winner from 18 starts and we loved what we saw last time out at Sha Tin.

He won the Group 1 Hong Kong Sprint when beating a world class field, so that form is always going to stack up brilliantly for this contest.

He gets the inside draw and punters get value odds.

2. Wellington ($6) Bet @ Sportsbet

The son of All Too Hard hasn’t done much in two runs back from a spell, but he might have needed race fitness.

He finished seventh in the Jockey Club Sprint before running seven lengths behind Sky Field in the Hong Kong Sprint. We’re not sure if he’s running enough to turn that run around, but there is market confidence.

3. Courier Wonder ($4) Bet @ Sportsbet

He started his career with five consecutive wins, including the Sha Tin Vase when beating Stronger by a length.

However, he hasn’t won in three starts against stronger company, so he might have met his match. He ran fifth in The Premier Bowl and the JC Sprint before running third in the Hong Kong Sprint.

With Joao Moreira in the saddle, he should get the best out of him, so include in trifecta bets.

4. Hot King Prawn (Best Roughie – $17) Bet @ Sportsbet

Hot King Prawn is a professional 12-time winner from 26 starts, so we’ll take the $17.

The seven-year-old comes off a fourth in the Hong Kong Sprint and he’s heading in the right direction. It was a solid outing and having Zac Purton riding helps.

He should get every chance from barrier four and he’s our best roughie at the price.

5. Stronger ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet

He’s only a one-time winner at Sha Tin and we don’t think he’s up to winning at Group 1 level.

His best runs have come against easier opposition and his lack of recent winning form is a concern.

6. Computer Patch ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet

Big odds are available for Computer Patch, who hasn’t shown much in five runs this season.

He was only 2.6 lengths behind Master Eight last start, but he was found wanting late, so we can’t have him in selections.

7. Super Wealthy ($7.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

Super Wealthy can’t be left out of calculations based on his run for third behind Master Eight in the Bauhinia Sprint.

The six-year-old owns six wins from 17 starts and he defeated Sky Field earlier this season, so that form has been franked.

Barrier three is ideal and he goes into the mix.

8. Master Eight (Best Bet – $3) Bet @ Sportsbet

Master Eight is unbeaten from five starts and the son of Oamaru Force could be a champion in the making.

He won by a half-length over Sight Success last start, and although he has yet to face Group 1 opposition, he is untapped.

Most of the early money has come for Master Eight and he headlines our selections.
