THE TRACKMAN: Horses to watch, Sha Tin, November 3

The Trackman gives us his horses to watch at Sha Tin

Lucky More (D035), race 2. 


Has been working readily for his debut run and should be hard to beat over 1,000m on debut. He has had nine solo workouts, responding well in some, and two competitive gallops with stablemates under the guidance of race-day jockey Zac Purton. A further two trials has this three-year-old in forward shape and looks the one. Bet with confidence.


Majestic Conqueror (C363) and Breeze Of Spring (C309), race 3. 


Both of these horses have caught the eye in their respective workouts for race three (1,200m) and should go very close. Ever-improving Majestic Conqueror ripped through a slick dirt hit out on October 26, stretching out sharply in closing stages to stop the clock in last 200m in 10.6s. That workout has him cherry ripe. Meanwhile,  Breeze Of Spring has done completed some slashing workouts and trials of his own and trainer Peter Ho has him in tip-top shape for a bold effort. He has had 13 sharp solo gallops, clocking good times and another two competitive gallops with stablemates, including on Thursday with Next Model (11.28). Respect them both and include in all types of bets.


Ho Ho Khan (B318), race 7.


The G3 Queen Mother Memorial Cup winner has improved leaps and bounds since last run over unsuitable 1,400m on October 20 and looks the goods in the Group 3 Sa Sa Ladies’ Purse over 1,800m. He looked in grand shape when stretching out in a searching gallop on Monday, with his final 200m covered in a sharp 10.95s. He was given an easy time in Thursday’s turf course proper piece with another classy type, High Rev, always sitting back and moving comfortably to the line under race-day jockey Vincent Ho.


Whether it is Hong Kong or Japan Cup, Christophe Lemaire has bad news for whoever Almond Eye faces next
