|5 BEEKELY||(1)||1110||125||G MOSSE||D J HALL||Age: 3|
|FIRST START: New Zealand-bred PPG, a 3-year-old gelding, by the excellent stallion Darci Brahma, a 5-time Group 1 winning son of Danehill. Darci Brahma has produced over 300 individual winners including 28-plus stakeswinners. He is also the sire of HK rising star D B Pin and former Singapore Horse of the Year Super Easy. His dam, Fairy Lights is a daughter of Fairy King, an outstanding sire whose progeny included Encosta de Lago. This fellow trialled once in New Zealand and went well for second on an unsuitable heavy track, but showed good early speed to lead. In HK he’s been to the trials four times and his three efforts on the turf have all been respectable, most recently when second to Paddington over 1200m at HV on Feb 18. He’s in very good hands, with a trainer who has repeatedly shown the ability to produce first-up winners. Respect.|
|6 BEST STEP||(13)||1090||125||K TEETAN||C FOWNES||Age: 3|
|FIRST START: New Zealand-bred PPG, a 3-year-old gelding, by the Australian-bred sprinter Cecconi, winner of a Blue Diamond Preview (1000m) as a juvenile. This is the first Cecconi to race in Hong Kong. He is the seventh foal of his dam, Volique, a daughter of Volksraad. The first three dams in this pedigree look quite empty, even though second dam Mimique is a Sydney winner by Zabeel. He trialled three times in NZ and won two, over 800m on yielding ground at Avondale and then again over 800m at Ellerslie, this time on heavy ground. He showed good gate speed to lead throughout on the latter occasion. In HK, he’s trialled three times and was given a very poor ride last time on the AWT. But before that, he finished second to Magic Legend (who came out to win first-up) and went well. He has plenty of natural speed and is undoubtedly a runner of interest on debut.|
|7 COMPASSION STAR||(9)||1049||125||Z PURTON||C H YIP||Age: 3|
|FIRST START: New Zealand-bred PPG, a 3-year-old gelding, by the relatively new stallion Bullbars, winner of the C S Hayes Stakes (1400m) at Flemington as a 3-year-old and runner-up in the Australian Guineas (Gr 1). Bullbars is a handsome brown horse by Elusive Quality (sire of 74 stakeswinners) from a daughter of global champion Singspiel, while second dam Anna Metrushka is by another great pedigree influence, the immortal Mill Reef. Bullbars is a half-brother to multiple Group 1 winner Epaulette. This fellow trialled twice in New Zealand and won them both, showing good speed and a lot of tenacity in each victory. Locally, he’s been to the trials three times and showed form on every occasion, his latest trial yielding a win over 1000m at ST, defeating Sacred Ibis. If there is a negative against his name here, it’s that he was hanging in quite badly in his final trial and may be better with a running rail to guide him.|
|8 DAZZLE WINNER||(5)||1155||125||H W LAI||Y S TSUI||Age: 3|
|FIRST START: Australian PPG, a 4-year-old gelding, by the Breeders’ Cup Mile winner Artie Schiller (El Prado), who has an outstanding son in Australia, the dual Gr 1-winning sprinter Flying Artie. Unfortunately, Artie Schiller has not made much of an impact in HK, with his progeny here including Glorious Partners, Gobi Storm, Medic Swordsman, Regal Army and Sichuan Charm. His dam, Lessie, is a daughter of the Victoria Derby winner turned useful sire, Blevic (Scenic). No trials to his name in either Australia or New Zealand. Locally, he’s been to the trials five times and did win one over the straight 1000m course at ST, back on Jan 3. However, he’s missed the start significantly at four of those five trials as well. Prefer to take a watching brief at this stage.|
|9 ELECTRIC LIGHTNING||(11)||1067||125||D WHYTE||D E FERRARIS||Age: 3|
|FIRST START: Australian PPG, a 3-year-old colt, by the very successful stallion Not A Single Doubt, a son of champion sire Redoute’s Choice and runner-up to Street Cry in the 2015-16 Australian Sires’ Premiership. Local progeny of Not A Single Doubt include Charity Joy, Harbour Punk, Diamond Master, Diamond Dragon, Sichuan Dar, Triumphant Jewel. This fellow’s dam, Plain Crazy, is by the American-bred speed influence Bite The Bullet. Had one trial in NZ for a commanding win, value for much more than his 1.5 length winning margin. In HK he’s trialled twice and gone well each time, most recently when third over 800m at ST on Tuesday (Feb 21). The major issue here is that he has missed the break in each of his HK trials, though he was better on Tuesday (only slow by 1 length). No doubt he has the talent.|
