Hong Kong Cup Tips 2020

Hong Kong Cup 2020 Best Bet - Magical

Has won eight of her last 12 starts over this distance which includes six Group Ones and the lowest rated-horse to beat her was Addeybb (122).

She didn't travel well on soft ground at Ascot via the Champion Stakes and the step back to ten furlongs is a positive for the daughter of Galileo following a runner-up finish in the Breeders' Cup.

One of Europe's finest mares in recent years and only overshadowed by Enable in that regard, Magical looks well placed to deliver Aidan O'Brien his first Hong Kong Cup.

Hong Kong Cup 2020 Next Best Bet - Danon Premium

Although not as consistent as Magical, this powerful son of Deep Impact is perhaps the most brilliant galloper in the Hong Kong Cup field for 2020.

Danon Premium was ridden on the speed last start in the Tenno Sho but is a more effective runner when allowed to take a sit, so from barrier six, William Buick can be a little moire conservative early.

This six-year-old is known to Australian fans from the 2020 autumn via a third-place finish in a high rating Queen Elizabeth behind two superior wet trackers and firmer footing on Sunday will enhance his hopes.
