Hong Kong Derby Day 2023

This Derby is for 4yos and there is a full field eagerly awaiting their chance to shine.

The top two in the market are Beauty Eternal for Size-Purton and Super Sunny Sing for So-Ho.  Both horses have strong claims and there should not be much between them at the finish although that result we have to wait and see! The other horse we have liked for a while is Turchel and the booking of Ryan Moore has done his chances no harm in our book with Moore just riding the winner of the Golden Slipper in Sydney on Saturday, and odds of 16.0 certainly appeal.

The Derby is race 8, and before that comes the other G1 of the day, The Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup over 1400m but there are only five horses in it.  California Spangles is all the rage here and Lucky Sweynesse has solid claims.  It will probably be a race of tactics so it will be interesting with Zac on Spangle and J Mac on Lucky 2.

There's also a Class 2 on the card at race 5 and it is over 1200m with 11 runners.  Victor The Winner is on 2.5 for Shum-Purton.  We think Packing Treadmill has a good chance here and he's on 3.7 for Lui-Bowman, and Beauty Charge is worthy of consideration on 9.3 for Crus- Chadwick.
