Gelding from the Derek Cruz Yard who backs up off a competitive fourth over this course and distance last week.
He finished off well that day behind Fox Sunter and the fitness he’ll have taken from that run could prove vital here.
The Wolf is confident that with the claim from Poon and a positive ride on the speed, he’ll prove very tough to run down.
Double Down: Expect him to settle on the speed.
A winner first up last season, this gelding could very well repeat that effort here.
He’s trialled well in preparation for this; responding when asked by the jockey to finish a game third.
He loves the track; having finished in the top three on five occasions, including one win.
The Wolf is confident he’ll be ready to fire here and if he brings his best form, he’ll take running down.
Double Down: Want him settled off the speed.
Litteratuer strung together two wins late in the 2016/17 season over this course and distance and looks well placed first up.
Zac Purton’s the key booking here; as last season the rider hopped on his back three times resulting in two wins.
He’s trialled well in preparation for this, finishing midfield under a strong hold after travelling wide throughout.
The Wolf is confident he’ll be fully wound up here for the task at hand and with a soft run in transit, appears the one to beat.
Double Down: Want him settled midfield.
Very consistent gelding from the David Hall Stable who has won four races in Hong Kong.
His trial in preparation for this was very quiet, but you can trust he’ll be ready to fire here.
The Wolf is confident that his form on paper is far superior to the others here and if he brings his best, should take beating.
Double Down: Want him settled worse than midfield.
Chris So trained gelding who was able to string together two solid wins against Class 4 company.
He’s struggled in Class 3 in his previous form, however the short break and positive barrier should have done him a world of good.
He’s trialled well in preparation for this, where he jumped to the lead and narrowly faded late to finish third.
He’ll be fit and ready to go for this and The Wolf is confident he’ll run a big race at a price.
Double Down: Want him settled on the speed or in the lead.
