Hong Kong Sprint Best Bet - Aethero @ $2.10

The hot favourite for the 2019 Hong Kong Sprint is this exciting three-year-old who just missed out on a Sha Tin track record last start in the Group Two Jockey Club Sprint.

Was safely holding his rivals at bay throughout for an eventual two length winning margin there and off that performance, it's difficult to find anything from that field turning the tables on him.

Trained by the legendary John Moore, this son of the versatile Australian stallion Sebring only has one blemish to his record but has been super impressive in the way he's bounced back.

Champion hoop Zac Purton drops to 53kg to ride this gelding in the sprint feature who's the obvious selection as the best bet in the Hong Kong Vase.

Hong Kong Sprint Next Best Bet - In Her Time @ $12.00

A now seven-year-old mare is this proven group one performer that arrives here third-up following a short preparation so far down under.

She was last seen running third to a dominant Nature Strip at Flemington on November 9 in a performance that would've seen that winner account for any sprinter on the planet that day.

In Her Time herself has won two group one races and placed at the top level on six other occasions in Australia, the strongest sprinting jurisdiction in world racing.

Whether she can still produce her best is questionable at her age and her campaign so far hasn't exactly been great, but we have to respect the class she's consistently been competitive in over a long time.

Hong Kong Sprint Best Value Bet - Danon Smash @ $18.00

This lightly raced four-year-old caught the eye in the Group One Sprinters Stakes at Nakayama on September 29.

Prepared by the Japanese stable of Kazuo Fujisawa, this big and robust son of Lord Kanaloa who himself won this race twice (2012 & 2013), was strong late for third albeit was left with too much to do.

That was his best group one effort to date and whilst the wins so far in his short career have all been at group three level, he did account for Tower Of London (Sprinters Stakes winner) the start prior.

Looks a lovely type and a nice Hong Kong Sprint value bet outside a lot of the well exposed runners entered.
