High Five (127lb) gave Martin Harley his first Hong Kong success and the duo will revive their partnership in the Class 2 sprint.
“He’s got a nice draw which I’m happy about, he seems in good form, he had a big run last start on the dirt in Class 2 company, so I’m very hopeful,” Harley said.
Harley’s four wins have been spread out, his most recent coming aboard Allied Agility in early May, but the Irishman remains positive that his 100% strike rate aboard High Five can remain intact.
“There looks to be loads of speed in the race and he likes being handy, so if we can be there without putting him on his head that’s what we’ll do. I’m delighted to get back on him and see if we can make it two from two,” he added.
