QEII Cup Form Guide & Tips

1. Russian Emperor (Best Bet – $2.10) Bet @ Neds

Russian Emperor finished second behind Golden Sixty last start and there is plenty to like about that form.

He is only a three-time winner, but he won the Hong Kong Gold Cup just two starts back, so he’s our top pick to win the QEII Cup.

2. Ka Ying Star ($17) Bet @ Neds

Ka Ying Star didn’t fire behind Golden Sixty last start and we don’t think he can turn that form around in time.

He struggles to perform at his best at Sha Tin, and despite some market confidence, we can’t have him in our selections.

3. Tourbillion Diamond ($13) Bet @ Neds

There has also been support for Tourbillion Diamond, who is better than what he showed last time out in the Chairman’s.

He looked good when winning the Sa Sa Ladies’ Purse earlier this season and anything close to that could be enough.

From barrier two, he’s worth including.

4. Columbus County ($11) Bet @ Neds

Columbus County gets the services of Joao Moreira, but that’s where the positives end.

$11 for the six-year-old is too short for our liking and his fresh up form doesn’t read that well, so we would want much longer odds.

5. Panfield ($21) Bet @ Neds

His recent form hasn’t been good but he won the Sha Tin Trophy fresh up last preparation, so he could hit the ground running.

This isn’t an easy race to kick off his campaign so we’re prepared to leave him out.

6. Reliable Team ($41) Bet @ Neds

Reliable Team should be paying longer odds given his form, so we’re not giving him a shout.

He is struggling to beat runners home and that form isn’t good enough to win the QEII Cup.

7. Savvy Nine (Best Roughie – $11) Bet @ Neds

Savvy Nine is only a two-time winner from 35 starts, but he has been threatening to win after posting six placings this season.

He has yet to win at Sha Tin but the confidence levels are there and that’s reflected in betting markets.

8. Romantic Warrior (Best Each Way – $3) Bet @ Neds

Romantic Warrior won the Hong Kong Derby and there isn’t much wrong with that form going forward.

He owns six wins from seven starts and he should get every chance from barrier four, so he’s going into the mix at $3.

It could pay to watch the betting markets.

9. Cheerful Days ($26) Bet @ Neds

The five-year-old wasn’t too far behind Golden Sixty last start and he could sneak into first four selections.

Zac Purton takes the ride, which adds to his appeal, and punters get value odds to enjoy.

Include Cheerful Days in first four bets.

10. Zebrowski ($15) Bet @ Neds

There has been money for Zebrowski, who is fresh up and some of his best form comes fresh.

The five-year-old son of Savabeel didn’t fire behind Russian Emperor last start, but his form prior included back-to-back wins.

He is another runner that could have a say at juicy odds.
