2 XIANG HUANG QI (6) 1174 132 K TEETAN K L MAN Age: 3 Thumb down
FIRST START: British-bred ISG (international sale griffin) by the top British speed influence Kyllachy, best known as the sire of Royal Ascot Diamond Jubilee Stakes (Gr 1) winner Twilight Son. Kyllachy has also proved to be a useful sire for HK conditions, with 15 winners of 42 races, including Gr 1 hero Dim Sum. His dam, Capacius (by Nayef) was placed at 1750m and is a sister or half-sister to two stakeswinners, while his third dam White Palace is by the great Shirley Heights. This fellow fetched HK$3.2 million at this year’s HK International Sale. Trainer Manfred Man has given him a thorough preparation, including five trials, but at this stage he looks to be a work in progress and not shaping like a first-up winner.
3 ELITE POWER (4) 1177 127 N CALLAN D E FERRARIS Age: 4 Formguide 1up
FIRST START: Australian-bred PPG, a 3-year-old gelding, a member of the first-crop of the non-commercial stallion Best Choice, a son of champion sire Redoute’s Choice and a half-brother to Hong Kong’s greatest horse of all time, Silent Witness (18 wins, the first 17 in succession). This gelding was prepared in Sydney by Bjorn Baker and had two trials there, placing at Warwick Farm first time out then scoring by 3.5 lengths over 800m at Kembla Grange on Feb 1. However, the second and third horses from the Kembla trial have since proved to be no good. Since arriving in HK and joining David Ferraris, he’s trialled on just the one occasion and went well for second to Amazing Satchmo over 800m at ST on Oct 3, though it was a blanket finish and the time was rather slow. That trial was not sufficient to merit betting support on debut.
4 RAY'S CALL (13) 1028 125 K C LEUNG K W LUI Age: 4 Formguide 1up

5 ROOKIE STAR (5) 994 127 C SCHOFIELD P F YIU Age: 4 Formguide 2up
FIRST START: Australian-bred PPG, a 4-year-old gelding, by the former top US miler Hard Spun (Danzig) from Tango’s Choice, a fast filly who won six of her 17 starts for Mick Price in Melbourne. Tango’s Choice was also well bred, being by Redoute’s Choice from La Rumba, by Centaine. Hard Spun has 61 stakeswinners to date, with nine Gr 1 winners including the top Australian miler Le Romain. Hard Spun’s better progeny in HK are Crown Avenue, Megatron and Bond Elegance. This gelding had one trial in Victoria under the guidance of Mitch Freedman and ran out a comfortable winner of an 800m trial at Cranbourne on April 3, leading throughout. In HK, trainer Ricky Yiu has trialled him twice, for a fair first-up sixth to Hard Promise on Sept 19, followed by a third to Conte over 1000m at ST on Oct 3. He wasn’t the best away from the barriers on either occasion, but he did fly the gates in his Australian trial. Looks smart and definitely a runner of interest.
