What Hong Kong Classic Cup
Where Sha Tin Racecourse – Tai Po Rd, Sha Tin District, Hong Kong
When Sunday, March 3, 2024
First Race 1pm HKT (4pm AEDT)

The Hong Kong Classic Cup (1800m) — the second leg of the Four-Year-Old Classic Series — takes top billing on a quality 10-race program at Sha Tin this Sunday. The rail is in the B+2 position for the entire circuit, and with no rain predicted, it should be a genuine Good 4 surface. The opening event is scheduled to get underway at 1pm local time.

Hong Kong Classic Cup: Helios Express

Helios Express bolted up in the Hong Kong Classic Mile (1600m) on February 4, kicking clear to score by 1.8 lengths. Based on how he travelled through the line last time out, the step up to 1800m shouldn’t hold any concerns for this son of Toronado. With another soft run in transit all but guaranteed from barrier two, it is hard to go past Helios Express in the 2024 Hong Kong Classic Cup.

Best Bet at Sha Tin: Magnificent Nine

Magnificent Nine may be winless in his three Hong Kong starts to date, but that should all change on Sunday. The Toronado gelding was sensational after travelling three wide without cover in his latest attempt at this course and distance, clinging onto fourth place despite a torrid run throughout. He finally draws a soft gate, and with Zac Purton likely to lob into the one-one position, Magnificent Nine gets the perfect opportunity to pick up his first Hong Kong victory for the John Size camp.

Next Best at Sha Tin: Sky Heart

Sky Heart continues to get no help from the barriers, drawing gates 10 and 14 to kick off his debut Hong Kong campaign. The three-year-old showed a scintillating turn-of-foot on both those occasions, managing to finish in the top three despite being forced to the rear of the field. He is likely to drag back again courtesy of barrier 13, so look for Blake Shinn to bide his time before unleashing Sky Heart down the centre of the course.

Best Value at Sha Tin: Massive Sovereign

Massive Sovereign appears to have settled in nicely after making his way to the Dennis Yip camp. The gelding was a two-time winner in Europe and has been trialling exceptionally well behind the likes of Romantic Warrior and Russian Emperor heading into his Hong Kong debut. It will be a tough ask first-up over 2000m, but with the booking of Zac Purton showing strong intent from the stable, Massive Sovereign should be a genuine contender in this C3 contest.
