Hong Kong Sprint Tips 2020

Hong Kong Sprint 2020 Best Bet - Classique Legend

Classique Legend is now under the care of leading Hong Kong trainer Caspar Fownes and following a dominant victory in The Everest, is a clear favourite for this sprint feature

The form from that Sydney feature has stood up superbly with both Bivouac (2020 Group One Darley Sprint Classic winner) and Gytrash (Yes Yes Yes Stakes) being produced from that high rating sprint Down Under.

There was somewhat of a query following what was just a fair trial in his first Hong Kong outing, but would expect the grey gelding to have come on further and with easily the best form coming into this event, he wouldn't have to be at his absolute best to be winning.

Hong Kong Sprint 2020 Value Bet - Voyage Warrior

You can throw a blanket over many of these contenders and at long odds for the each-way players, this five-year-old isn't without a top three hope.

Voyage Warrior arrives out of the key local lead-up via the Jockey Club Sprint where at a minimum, he should've at least finished second to Hot King Prawn but was held-up and invonvenienced for much of the straight, so had to settle for an unlucky fourth.

He did defeat that same galloper (second favourite here) back in April under the same conditions and from barrier eight in this bigger field, gets a better chance of angling out and building momentum late.
