Chairman’s Sprint Form Guide & Tips

1. Sky Field ($5.50) Bet @ Neds

Sky Field is fresh up having finished fourth behind Wellington in the Silver Jubilee Cup.

He’s good enough to turn the tables on that effort, but it’s not going to be easy. His fresh-up record is only fair, so he might be needed the run.

Punters get each-way odds and he can’t be left out of calculations.

2. Wellington (Best Bet – $2.87) Bet @ Neds

Wellington has improved nicely to win his last two races, including the Silver Jubilee and Sprint Cup.

The five-year-old son of All Too Hard owns nine wins from 15 starts and he is the defending champion, so we’re not surprised by the odds.

He only needs luck from the draw to go well again.

3. Lucky Patch (Best Each Way – $6.50) Bet @ Neds

Lucky Patch is unbeaten from two fresh up starts and he scored back-to-back wins last preparation.

The son of El Roca was brought down last time out behind Sky Field in the Hong Kong Sprint, so he has needed time to recover.

He’s a classy thoroughbred and we’re hoping the fall didn’t dent his confidence.

4. Stronger ($15) Bet @ Neds

Stronger is only a two-time winner at Sha Tin and that’s a big concern. He did win the Centenary Cup Sprint at Group 1 level on the track, but he didn’t fire last time out.

He also finished 4.1 lengths behind Wellington in this race last year, so we’re prepared to leave him out of trifecta selections, but consider in first four bets.

5. Hot King Prawn ($10) Bet @ Neds

Hot King Prawn is a 12-time winner, and although his recent form hasn’t been up to scratch, he’s good enough to win.

The seven-year-old son of Denman was only 1.9 lengths behind Wellington last start and he could turn the tables and run in the money.

Barrier three and having Joao Moreira in the saddle helps.

6. Sight Success ($7.50) Bet @ Neds

Sight Success is another runner who could threaten to win the Chairman’s Sprint Prize.

The son of Magnus went close last time out, which followed a win at Sha Tin over the likes of Super Wealthy.

Getting Zac Purton in the saddle from barrier two is ideal, so we can’t leave him out.

7. Super Wealthy (Best Roughie – $15) Bet @ Neds

Super Wealthy didn’t fire at Sha Tin last start, but despite finishing seventh, he was only 2.1 lengths away.

The six-year-old looked much better when running second behind Sight Success prior, which is a good form guide.

Getting $15 is a good price and he’s worth including in selections.

8. Master Eight ($7.50) Bet @ Neds

We have given Master Eight a chance at his last three runs, but he has been costly for win punters.

However, he wasn’t been far away from Wellington and Sight Success, so he warrants attention at the each-way odds.

He’s likely to settle off the pace and come with a late run, so include in selections.

9. Computer Patch ($41) Bet @ Neds

Computer Patch hasn’t been at his best this season and we can’t find room for him our selections.

He hasn’t been too far away from the winner, but he would need to find two or three lengths to compete in the Chairman’s Sprint Prize.

10. Lucky Express ($26) Bet @ Neds

Lucky Express won fresh up against much easier opposition and his performances at Group 1 level haven’t been good.

It’s a very tough field, so we don’t think he has what it takes to win.

11. Kurpany ($101) Bet @ Neds

He scored back-to-back wins against easy company earlier this preparation but his recent efforts have been poor.

Kurpany won’t be troubling them.
