2015 Hong Kong Cup Betting Preview PT 2

The punters certainly didn’t think he was being sent out to win that particular race as the betting markets had him trading at an 11/1 price tag to win on his first effort of the local season. Prior to that he has ended off his 2014/15 campaign with an unsuccessful second place to Dan Excel at Kranji in the Singapore Airlines International Cup, which is also a Group 1 contest. 


Look for Military Attack at about a 6/1 margin right now with some books going as high as a 13/2 price. 

Blazing Speed and Contributor are both trading at 8/1 prices and looking decent value to move forward here with another effort. Blazing Speed was disappointing on his seasonal debut as well - running in the same race as Military Attack and coming out of the gates at a hefty 41/1 price only to finish sixth. 

Blazing Speed was able to get the better of Military Attack last year when they tangled in the Longines Jockey Club Cup, which is a Group 2 event. He was also victorious in the QEII Cup but has been an unpredictable horse to wager on and it may be worth waiting to see how his run goes on prep day. 

Contributer was last seen at Flemington on Halloween in the Longines McKinnon Stakes when he finished third to Gailo Chop. He’s another talented international runner who has done well in the UK before shifting over to Australian shores for Godolphin and running in a steady series of interesting races. 

He will be shipping to Hong Kong for the first time and will obviously need to step it up if he’s going to take on these big name superstars on their own turf but the simple fact remains that the son of High Chaparral continues to have plenty of upside, despite the fact that his 2015 campaign has been lacklustre so far.
