Another favourites day at Sha tin? Depends. For 6up and Treble players, if Joao Moreira wins on Follow Me- $1.40 overnight- the 6up and Treble- and Quaddie for those at the Emerald Hotel Bar- won’t buy you a plate of nachos and a couple of beers at Joe Bananas. But if it were to lose- and it very easily could- as Adele would say…

For us, the value lies in r2, r8 and perhaps r10. But we’re not Deane Lester.

RACE 1

Give it a miss.

It’s just guesswork. And witchcraft.

RACE 2

Seriously now, why bother?

It’s one of those races for Hong Kong’s racing’s Uncles and Aunties where something has to win. Very much doubt it will be the Zac Attack on favourite The Full Bloom (2).

RACE 3

Shatin 1000 metre specialist Styling City (5) should win this giving another winner in the Resurrection Of Douglas Whyte. But word is that John Size has worked the oracle on Ivictory (1) and is back to being the champion sprinter that he was. Could be just a straight quinella. Taking a First Double Trio? Why bother? It will pay Bo Diddley squat.

RACE 4

Actually, we have no idea about this race. Just a hunch. Like the weird bugger in Notre Dame.

Joyful Contender (7)
Borntoachieve (9)
Nice Kick (10)
This One’s For You (4)

RACE 5

Nuclear Power (5)
Famous Warrior (4)
Top Laurels (3)
Imperial Concorde (11)

RACE 6

Hurricane Hunter (12)
Touch Of Luck (5)
The Createth (3)
Alpha Hedge (6)

RACE 7

Gift Of Lifeline (6)
Travel Successor (12)
Super Leader (1)
Golden Effort (7)

RACE 8

This is a race where one just goes…

RACE 9

Good grief, imagine if Follow Me doesn’t win?

Listening to Edward Sadler- we think it was Ed as the interviewer is never ever shown- ask Joao Moreira about his ride, what at least WE got out of what he had to say, was that Follow Me has potential and a pretty good future.

What about today? Not much other than perhaps, “How about a garlic pizza?”

Of course Follow Me could win with a leg in the air, but that 6up would be a 5up. You have been warned. Ciao.

RACE 10

Charity Go (9)
Enrichment (12)
Easy Go, Easy Win (3)
Helene Leadingstar (10)

There are about four other horses who can take this out- Tigre du Terre (8), Mongolian King (4), Ka Ying Star (13) and one the tea lady is going to back- Fast Most Furious (5).

BEST BET
R3
Styling City (5)

NEXT BEST
R5
Nuclear Power (5)

LONGSHOT
R8
Golden Kid (10)
