SAMMO HUNG REACHES FOR THE SKY AGAIN 1

Imagine having to deal with martial arts Actor and Producer Sammo Hung after his horse has been beaten as an odds-on favorite?

We shudder to think, but this is what happened earlier this season when it was rolled as a very short-priced favorite when ridden by Douglas Whyte over its favorite distance of 1000 metres and where it had won for jockey Andreas Suborics.

Why there was a jockey change puzzled us, but, after the “Whytewash”, Matthew Chadwick became the new jockey for the Ricky Yiu trained galloper and won with a leg in the air and eased down.

On Sunday, Amber Sky steps out again over the 1000 metres distance and with Chadwick retaining the ride.

Drawn the favorable barrier 13 which is the quicker way home, it looks extremely hard to beat despite the presence of another course and distance specialist in Good Boy Boy.

Though carrying a featherweight with ten-pound claimer Dicky Lui on it, the horse is drawn barrier three and the inexperienced Lui could easily be caught out wide whereas Sammo’s Amber Sky with Chadwick’s navigational skills only needing to keep the horse on the straight and narrow.

Sure, it will again start a short-priced favorite but it’s a standout in Six Up and Treble bets and a win banker on tierce bets with either Good Boy Boy or Go Baby Go as those running into the quinella.

Reach for the Amber Sky and grab that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
