Stewards Cup Form Guide & Tips


1. Golden Sixty (Best Bet – $1.16) Bet @ Sportsbet

Punters get extremely short odds for Golden Sixty, but he can be added to your horse racing multi bets this weekend.

The champion winner of 14 from 15 starts, Golden Sixty has been putting away tough fields with ease this season. He scored by two lengths over Southern Legend last start, and he put away Ka Ying Star on multiple occasions prior.

There is nothing this horse can’t do and we still feel as though he’s underrated on the world stage.

2. Southern Legend (Best Roughie – $17) Bet @ Sportsbet

Southern Legend finished second behind Golden Sixth last start at odds of $31, and he demands respect on an each-way basis.

The eight-year-old is a 12-time winner that won the Champions Mile last year, so he still has plenty of life left in his legs.

Barrier two is ideal and Karis Teetan rides.

3. Waikuku (Best Each Way – $11) Bet @ Sportsbet

The John Size-trained gelding finished fourth behind Golden Sixty last start and he will be better for the fitness.

It was his first run of the campaign, and his second-up form includes three starts for a win and two placings.

Having Joao Moreira in the saddle is a big bonus, and his class could see Waikuku push Golden Sixth close on Sunday.

4. Ka Ying Star ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet

Ka Ying Star scored back-to-back second placings behind Golden Sixty this preparation, but his form since has been only fair.

He finished eighth in the Hong Kong Mile before running fifth in the Challenge Cup behind Champion’s Way. That form won’t be good enough to figure in the finish, and the odds reflect as much.

5. Rise High ($11) Bet @ Sportsbet

The six-year-old has been specked in betting following his run for fifth behind Champion’s Way. It wasn’t the most comprehensive performance but his form behind Golden Sixty makes him a chance.

He finished second behind the champion in October and November, and he was only a half-length behind him on one occasion.

The inside draw helps and he’s a first-four chance.

6. Mighty Giant ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet

Mighty Giant owns six wins from 12 starts, but those wins have yet to come in high grades. He finished seventh in the Hong Kong Mile, and followed it up with a placing.

He has able to win five consecutive starts, so he has ability. However, this grade could be too tough on Sunday.

7. More Than This ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet

Winning a Group 1 fresh up isn’t easy to do, and that’s what More Than This is trying to achieve.

The five-year-old owns seven wins from 15 starts, and he finished third behind Golden Sixth in the Hong Kong Derby.

However, he hasn’t had a run since June and the fitter horses should prove too much for him.

8. Champion’s Way ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet

Winning form is goof form, which is why Champion’s Way is a first-four hope on Sunday.

The five-year-old son of Hinchinbrook scored by 1.3 lengths in the Challenge Cup, so his confidence is up.

He shouldn’t be winning this race, but include him in multiples.
