Champions Mile Form Guide & Tips

1. Golden Sixty (Best Bet – $1.33) Bet @ Neds

Golden Sixty returned to his best form with a win in The Chairman’s Trophy by two lengths.

The six-year-old gelding owns 20 wins from 23 starts, so he’s the best thoroughbred in Hong Kong and he’s paying short odds to do it again.

Drawing barrier two will allow him to settle where he’s comfortable and the $1.33 shouldn’t be overlooked because it’s a short quote.

2. More Than This ($15) Bet @ Neds

The six-year-old hasn’t been far away from the prize this season, but not doing enough to win races.

Drawing the inside barrier with Karis Teetan riding makes it tough to rule him out completely, so include him in first four and trifecta selections.

3. Waikuku (Best Roughie – $10) Bet @ Neds

Waikuku is paying value odds considering he defeated Golden Sixty just three starts back in The Steward’s Cup.

The son of Harbour Watch failed to make an impression when being pulled up in the Chairman’s, but he could hit back.

He wouldn’t be running if he wasn’t near his best, so punters should take the double-figure odds with open arms.

4. Mighty Giant ($34) Bet @ Neds

Mighty Giant has been sparingly-raced over the last year, and although he owns a win in the Chairman’s Trophy, he hasn’t done much since.

The six-year-old son of Power was three lengths behind Wellington in the Silver Jubilee Cup, but he might need to find a length or two on that performance.

5. Healthy Happy ($67) Bet @ Neds

Healthy Happy would need to improve considerably to figure in the placings and the odds suggest as much.

The son of Zoustar finished 11th in the Chairman’s Trophy and that form isn’t going to get the job done on Sunday.

6. Champion’s Way ($21) Bet @ Neds

There has been solid betting support for Champion’s Way, who won two starts back before running fourth behind Golden Sixty.

Despite paying $81 last start, he has firmed up considerably for this run and we wouldn’t be surprised to see him run close.

The small field helps and he’s a multiples addition.

7. Excellent Proposal ($34) Bet @ Neds

The five-year-old son of Exceed and Excel hasn’t shown his best form this campaign and we don’t think that’s going to change.

Having Joao Moreira in the saddle is a bonus, but he has been struggling at the top level and we don’t have much confidence in his chances of success.

8. California Spangle (Best Each Way – $4.50) Bet @ Neds

California Spangle isn’t suited by the weights, but the four-year-old comes off a tough run in the Hong Kong Derby.

The seven-time winner has fitness on his side and punters should include him in selections, especially if he brings his best.

Carrying 57kg isn’t ideal, but his class should take him close.
