COMMENTS AND PROSPECT:

BEL ESPRIT, the former G1 Blue Diamond Stakes champion, has a record of 8 wins, 4 seconds and a third in 18 starts. He recorded five wins in a row at the beginning of his racing career, and placed 5th in the Golden Slipper in 2YO and 2nd in Manikato Stakes, Caulfield Guineas and Newmarket Handicap respectively at the age of 3. He lifted the G1 Doomben 10000, which was his second G1 title before retirement, with Nash Rawiller on board. More than 23 of BEL ESPRIT won the black types; the unbeaten queen BLACK CAVIAR is his representative.

REAL GIANT was purchased by current owner in Hong Kong International Sale (March) at 4 million. His dam was a nine-time winner over 1600M to 2200M. Her first three foalsˇ¦ winning distance were 1950M to 2000M while all of them were sired by SAVABEEL. As a son of BEL ESPRIT, REAL GIANT should be most effective over the sprints while his full-brother RENZULLI placed 2nd in a 1300M synthetic contest. Happy Valley should be fine for him since most BEL ESPRIT in HK performed well on the city track.
