2023 Hong Kong Mile Tips


2023 Hong Kong Mile Best Bet - Golden Sixty

With 25 victories, Golden Sixty has the most wins of any horse since the professionalization of Hong Kong horse racing in 1971 and in the 2023 Hong Kong Mile, he's aiming for Group 1 win number 11.

After finishing second in the 2022 Hong Kong Mile, the eight-year-old is still looking to join Good Ba Ba as the only three-time winner of this feature and the veteran is fancied to achieve that.

Jumping from a wide draw and off what appears to be a good tempo up front, Vincent Ho will drop the champion out early and be sure to listen for the crowd as the fav makes his move.
2023 Hong Kong Mile Next Best Bet - Serifos

Despite a somewhat plain effort last start when well in the market for the Group 1 Mile Championship, Serifos is still the leading visitor on ratings and he draws for a soft run in transit here.

While he hasn't saluted since his maiden Group 1 triumph just over 12 months ago, the four-year-old was Group 1 placed only two starts ago when runner-up to Songline in the Yasuda Kinen.

This is the first time that a double-figure quote has been ever available for Serifos and if you're prepared to forgive one below-par performance, then he's one of the logical threats to the fav.

2023 Hong Kong Mile Value Bet - Beauty Joy

This gelding is prepared by Tony Cruz, who is looking to join John Moore as a four-time Hong Kong Mile-winning trainer and at double the price of Beauty Eternal, he does look over the odds.

Beauty Joy was only a pimple off beating that key rival last start in the Jockey Club Mile, which is one of the traditional lead-ups and the winner of that did enjoy a better run in transit.

The seven-year-old has been a late bloomer, having graduated to Group 1 level last season and the highlight of those outings was a second behind Golden Sixty in the Champions Mile.
