The opening action from Sha Tin on Wednesday is a class 4 over 6f. I’m siding with Little Thunder, who managed to win when last seen, earlier in the month. He’s gone up 6lb since then but should have plenty to offer on this surface. Victor Wong retains the ride and could follow up and definitely one to respect.

Buddies will be fancied after an impressive victory last time but Mongolian King gets the vote after also passing the post in front on his most recent start. In his last five starts he has posted one win and three seconds and and is the most experienced runner in the field with 40 career starts so far. He should run a big race again.
This race could be dominated Super Power Man, who certainly has been showing power in his last two efforts. This youngster has only had three life-time starts and having finished seventh on debut, came back 45 days later to win. A 60-day break after that was no hindrance as he recorded another win last month. He’s had 38 days to recover from that effort but has already proven that he runs well fresh.
He steps up in class on Wednesday, looks to be an upward curve and is a horse with a future.
The final race is a Class 3 contest over 1m½f and Touch Of Luck was a winner here last time over course and distance. He looks sure to give another good account of himself with two wins and three placed efforts as part of his 63 per cent strike in runs to placed efforts. A decent each-way play if the price is right.
