Hong Kong Derby Power Rankings™️ November 8

Our experts rank the top 14 contenders for the 2020 Hong Kong Derby

How  do the Hong Kong Derby Power Rankings™️ work?  

Our panel of Hong Kong racing experts each rank the horses eligible for the 2020 Hong Kong Derby, with the average ranking of each horse forming a top 14 “pre-post” market order for the big race in March. We will regularly update the Hong Kong Derby Power Rankings™️ as the race gets closer, using trials and races to assess each four-year-old’s chances. 

 

A tough win by More Than This last weekend has propelled the 90-rated stayer ahead of Champion’s Way and to the top of the first edition of the first Hong Kong Derby Power Rankings™️ for the 2020 race.

Champion’s Way received more number one rankings than More Than This, but with some experts questioning the John Size-trained talent’s ability to stretch to the 2,000m of next year’s Derby, some lower rankings pulled the 108-rater down to number two.

Champion’s Way gets a chance to put his Derby credentials on the line in Saturday’s Panasonic Cup at Sha Tin while More Than This, who has won two-from-two this season already, well next race in the always competitive 1,600m Class 2 on International Day (December 8).

Interestingly, seven of the top 14 selected by our experts are yet to have a start in Hong Kong, including Size’s Australian import Beauty Legacy, a G2 winner in Australia when racing under the name Hawkshot.
