Comes up this Sunday.

Locals look strong in the Sprint.

Beauty Generation is odds on in the Mile.

Euros look to dominate in the Vase.

The Japanese are a lock in the Cup.

Japan seems to be more upbeat than usual about chances across all races.
The fact that all jockeys at the top of the premiership are heading to ride regular mounts, albeit just one in many cases, means they expect to do well in all legs of HKIR.
Personally I believe Dierdre in the Cup is the strongest chance. Persian Knight is Japan's best miler. Lys  Gracieux has realised her potential with a riding change. The sprint is the only race Japan may miss.

Locals 2/2 so far.

A rare home win in the Vase, with Exultant fighting back to beat the Japanese filly, Lys Gracieux, which looked home for all money.

Mr Stunning goes back to back in the Sprint.

Next up, Beauty Generation in the Mile and then the Cup.

S de Sousa pulls his rivals’ pants down in the Cup, leading all the way on Glorious Forever.

When C-P Lemaire’s alarm clock finally went on off, Deirdre made up a power of ground late, but was left with far too much to do.

She needed sting out but to my eye wasn't traveling in back straight. Japan 3 2nds.

From Racenet

In Her Time scratched from rich Hong Kong Sprint

In Her Time - Australia's lone representative across four Group I races in Hong Kong on Sunday - has been withdrawn from the HK$20 million (A$3.75m) Longines Hong Kong Sprint (1200m).

Trainer Kris Lees had been confident on Saturday that the two-time Group I winning mare would still be fit to line up despite suffering a cracked foot on the eve of the race.

But a race morning vet inspection has ruled In Her Time, who was to be partnered by Brenton Avdulla, out of the rich sprint.

In Her Time was to be Avdulla's first ride in Hong Kong and the seven-year-old mare had been set to be the lone horse to fly the Aussie flag across four Group Is at the Hong Kong International meeting at Sha Tin.

With In Her Time scratched, Aethero is now the $1.35 favourite for the Sprint with tab.com.au

I got bloused out of the quaddie in the last. Didnt like the fave and had the 2nd and 3rd horse who was dead stif after never getting clear.

Quad was paying 25K :tears: :tears: :tears: :tears: :tears:

Great day for the Japanese horses. I backed Admire Mars at the big odds and the lovely grey who went back to back in the cup :clap2:

HK Derby,

Shinn almost steals it on a 290/1 pop. Great ride from the tail where he went forward  early to make them catch him ....but caught by the short priced favourite in the shadows of the post by an equally good ride; massive daylight 3rd..

The horse may have started at 290/1 but if any new punters ( idiots too as I am feeling generous ) think the horse was not prepared to the minute for that race review its preparation and that of other roughies that show up in similar races.

Far from being hidden or a secret this is what good trainers do.

Of course real idiots would deny the horse a start in the field at all and deny everyone a really great exciting race. Various rating guides would have alerted you to the fact that 290/1 was a joke - but due to all of the money on the hyped obvious horses and hyped jockeys.

It was a great ride by Shinn, nearly pull their pants down by setting his horse alight and stealing a march.

Indecently I have the horse black booked from his first start in HK and wrote "1600m + Derby?" but his form sort of wavered bar an AW track start so I updated to watch for him getting onto the AW track again.

No I didn't have anything on him yesterday  :shy:
