2015 Hong Kong Sprint Betting Tips PT 2

Sole Power is trading at around 16/1 right now with several bookmakers currently floating ante post markets on this race and he was last seen finishing a disappointing ninth at Longchamp on the Arc De Triomphe undercard in the Group 1 Prix De L’Abbaye. He took a Group 2 race at The Curragh prior to that but it remains his only victory this season save the Group 1 Al Quoz Sprint on the Dubai World Cup Day undercard. 

He has proven that he can run at Sha Tin, though he didn’t do so hot last year with a ninth place finish well behind Aerovelocity despite being sent out of the gates at an 8/1 margin. Look for him to be a factor here as the pattern of his races - and a recent jockey change to Chris Hayes - indicates that he could have more in store on the big Sunday in Hong Kong. 

Gold Fun ranks as the strong second favourite here and it’s justifiable to think that this one will definitely be in the reckoning if he is able to run to his regular ability. A horse that specializes in the Sha Tin track, he hasn’t actually won a race since February but has finished in the top three of all of his last few outings. It’s worth noting, however, that two of them came at listed level instead of at the absolute top. 

The six-year-old gelding has a lot of talent and certainly could be a real factor here but many will likely be looking for him to make up the trifecta as opposed to actually challenging Chautauqua for the victory - look for him around a 4/1 margin right now with most bookmakers. 

Peniaphobia is also a factor here as well and trades at a similar price of around 9/2 currently. He’s been a bit outside of the reckoning as of late as well, without a victory since early January of this year. He has been on a great streak at that point though - finishing in the top three in nearly every race in his career prior to really going off the boil in February of this year.
