Hong Kong Classic Mile Form Guide & Tips


1. Sky Darci (Best Bet – $3) Bet @ Sportsbet

Sky Darci is the class runner of the field and although beaten last start, he didn’t lose any admirers.

The four-year-old owns five wins from nine starts, and running second behind Champion’s Way isn’t a bad result.

His form prior was excellent and he goes clearly on top.

2. Excellent Proposal ($10) Bet @ Sportsbet

He ended his last campaign with three consecutive wins, but that wasn’t a good effort last time out.

He finished 6.3 lengths behind Not Usual Talent, and although he is an up-and-comer, we can’t back him at $10.

3. Enrich Delight ($7.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

Plenty of money has come for Enrich Delight, which scored a one-length win two starts back at Sha Tin.

The four-year-old was third behind Not Usual Talent last start, which could be a solid form guide for this race.

$7.50 is a tough short of value, but he should figure in the finish.

4. Healthy Happy ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet

He is a winner of four from eight starts, but he would need to improve to win. The former Australian scored a win over Bandersnatch at Randwick before heading to Hong Kong.

That form has been franked and he also owns a second placing behind Funstar. He needs luck from the draw, but he could sneak into the money.

5. Lucky Express ($9) Bet @ Sportsbet

Lucky Express was second behind Sky Darci two starts back and he wasn’t far behind the favourite.

He has since had another run, which resulted in a placing. Therefore, he shouldn’t be too far away from the play.

Karis Teetan rides and he’s not without a chance.

6. Tourbillon Diamond (Best Each Way – $6) Bet @ Sportsbet

Charlie Shum lines up the four-year-old which scored at Sha Tin last start. He rarely runs a bad race and there is plenty of improvement to come.

Drawing barrier 11 makes it tough, but the former Australian finished third in the Group 1 Australian Derby, and that is excellent form.

$6 is a good enough price to take.

7. Shadow Hero ($13) Bet @ Sportsbet

Shadow Hero is another former Australian that has had two runs in Hong Kong. The four-year-old finished third at Sha Tin last start, which was a good hit out.

He won the Randwick Guineas before finishing fourth behind Castelvecchio and Quick Thinker. That form is tidy and it’s only a matter of time before he wins in Hong Kong.

8. Russian Emperor ($67) Bet @ Sportsbet

Russian Emperor is a two-time winner that could struggle in this company. He didn’t fire a shot last start, so more is needed.

$67 is reflective of his ability.

9. The Summit ($101) Bet @ Sportsbet

Another long-shot runner that appears to have no shot. His last two starts were very poor, and connections are having a stab in the dark.

10. Lucky Patch (Best Roughie – $10) Bet @ Sportsbet

The four-year-old is a four-time winner from six starts, and his form since arriving in Hong Kong has been solid.

He scored consecutive wins in Brisbane before being sold to Hong Kong, where he has won twice and placed twice.

He should be included in selections at double-figure odds.

11. Celestial Power ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet

Celestial Power is seeking three consecutive wins after scoring by a nose at Happy Valley.

He would need to find multiple lengths to be competitive in this grade.

12. Maximus ($17) Bet @ Sportsbet

He is a four-time winner that finished second behind Circuit Three last time out. There is plenty of scope with this runner, but we can’t take the $17.

Bookmakers would need to offer $35 for us to be entertained.

13. Beauty Joy ($29) Bet @ Sportsbet

Beauty Joy scored four consecutive wins in Perth before being sold to Hong Kong. The four-year-old defeated some nice types, but was left wanting at Sha Tin last start.

$29 is a fair price given his ability this early in his career.

14. Tsar ($101) Bet @ Sportsbet

He didn’t fire fresh up and the triple-figure odds don’t excite us.
