Back Golden Sixty to win Hong Kong Derby @ 11/10 William Hill
The top three in the market are all facing the 2000m journey for the first time so only the strong will survive.
While they all have some claims to being a winning chance, none of these have a resume that looks anything like that of GOLDEN SIXTY who is clearly the one they have to beat.
The son of Medaglia D’Oro has enjoyed the perfect preparation for this, with trainer Francis Lui spacing his lead-up races to keep him as fresh as possible, while maintaining a level of race fitness. His last two performances showed he has dominance over his opposition here, winning both races.
Two starts back, he won the HK Classic Mile (1600m), coming from well back to win comfortably in the end. Then last start, he lined up in the HK Classic Cup (1800m), racing beyond 1600m for the first time, where the extra distance had little to no effect on him. He settled at the tail and again produced a strong finish to out-muscle Champion’s Way and More Than This to grab a half-length victory.
The three of them will be at it again here as they all step up another 200 metres and will surely give us another exciting finish.
It’s too hard to tip against Golden Sixty with a resume as glowing as his. Nine wins from 10 starts, the last six in a row, and all nine victories on the Sha Tin track. Surely, only bad luck will cost him another item of mantlepiece memorabilia.
