Hong Kong Vase Tips 2020

Hong Kong Vase 2020 Best Bet - Mogul

He improved with every start in Europe this year and followed in the footsteps of his full brother Japan when winning the Grand Prix de Paris, beating future Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe runner-up, In Swoop by two-and-a-half lengths in the process

Was due to run in the Arc, but had to be withdrawn due to the contaminated feed fiasco and finished fifth of ten in the Breeders' Cup Turf, where the ground was a little on the quick side and he didn't seem to handle the final bend that well. 

Good ground is much more suitable, and with the three-year-old allowance on his side, Mogul can take out what isn't a deep edition of the Hong Kong Vase.

Hong Kong Vase 2020 Value Bet - Columbus County

Leading Hong Kong trainer Caspar Fownes and "The Magic Man" Joao Moreira combine with Columbus County, a galloper that improved as the last season wore on and resumed with a big win with 60kg at Happy Valley.

The son of Redwood handled the step up in class well via the Jockey Club Cup on November 22 where despite settling last in a truly run affair, made good inroads and was only just over a length off Exultant on the line over that 2000m journey.

Outside of Mogul, Columbus is one of the very few in this line-up with some upside as only a lightly raced gelding and looks about the only logical threat to either of the favourites with a good platform to peak on Sunday.
