Farm Bumper (C244), Race 1.
We start the night with a Class 5 special and this guy has done everything right ahead of this start. Is ready to win after a nice barrier trial at this course and following five good hit outs, including when matched up with Jade Fortune last Saturday. The Manfred Man-trained four-year-old hasn’t disgraced in three runs at Sha Tin this season and is sporting tongue tie for the first time, which he had in the trial.
El Jefe (C466), Race 3.
Happy Good Guys was full of himself when giving recent Sha Tin winner Villa Fionn a galloping lesson on the turf on November 7, winning by miles. He led in the piece by a length but kept going to impress the track watchers. Trainer Ricky Yiu is having a good season and he has got this fellow spot on to win in race 4 over 1000m – the first leg of the International Jockeys’ Championship.
