Tips, tiaras and tantrums at Shatin today

(Courtesy of http://www.fasttrack.hk)

THE FAST TRACKER GOES LOOKING FOR AN ABLE FRIEND.

R1 BULLISH SMART

An exhibition gallop for the Tony Cruz-trained and Joao Moreira-ridden Bullish Smart. If you get ten cents back on the win, you’ll be laughing- though not all the way to the bank.

R2 YUAN’S FORTUNE/SMART GUY/JOLLY GOOD

Shatin today 2

R3 UNIQUE JOYOUS/SUPREME FLIGHT/COSTA DEL SOLO/SENSATION

If it fails today, keep following Unique Joyous which has been kept well under wraps in its trials and trackwork with race jockey Olivier Delouze- not really riding with his usual joie de vivre these days- doing all the work on it.

R4 SAFARI MAGIC/REBORN TO WIN/MEGA CHAMPION/GREAT RUN

Shatin today 4

R5 CAGA FORTUNE /OUR FOLKS/GORGEOUS DEBUT

Am putting Our Folks in somewhat reluctantly and wondering if its good second at its debut was the best it can do. It’s starting to look more and more as if it doesn’t want to win and keeps going up in the ratings for running places.

R6 INDUSTRIALIST WAY/NATURAL CHAMPION/OCEAN POWER/CHINA DELIGHT

It might be carrying topweight but from the way it won at its last start should keep the streak going.

R7 MULTI-EXPRESS/LANG TAI SING/SUN PINS/G-ONE LEADING

Shatin today 6

R8 KHAYA/SUNNY YING/TRAVEL BRAND/ASHKIYR

Khaya should be too good for this lot- which I’ve been saying every time it gets to the front- too early- and then runs outta gas. One more chance.

R9 ABLE FRIEND/VARIETY CLUB/GOLD FUN

Even from its awkward barrier, the Cornell Li- owned Able Friend looks set to be the best miler Hong Kong has had since the great Good Ba Ba.

Shatin today 8

To fill the quinella spots- Gold Fun and Variety Club- whole seeing how Moreira, Whyte and Anton Marcus ride their gallopers being something interesting to watch

R10 PACKING LLAREGYB/NUMERO UNO/I’M IN CHARGE

A decent chance for Hugh Bowman to get off the mark here on Numero Uno despite it being drawn barrier numero 14.

R11WHY NOT/REDWOOD BABY/LET ME GO/ONGOING VOLATILITY

Redwood Baby should take this out though still needing to mature but keep Ongoing Volatility in mind as it was given a real stinker of a ride by Howard Cheng at its last start at Happen. The enigmatic Derek Leung takes over this time and is bothering to waste to ride the galloper.

big apple 4

BEST BET
Race 10, No. 2 Packing Llaregyb
Broke through for his first win last start and this looks no harder.

SECOND BEST
Race 11, No. 6 Redwood Baby
Racing well without a lot of luck and should be better suited on a bigger track.

LONGSHOT
Race 5, No. 4 Dining World
Freshened after a couple of disappointing runs. An improved showing wouldn’t surprise.

QUADDIE
2,7 / 1,8 / 1,2,7,9 / 4,6,14. $50 for 104.16%.
