How the trends can help you find the winners in Hong Kong’s biggest races

Top-class horse racing from Hong Kong remains a real favourite with lovers of the sport who like to seek out the value from the international scene. Bookmakers are aware of the interest and that’s why you’ll find the biggest betting firms often put forward prices for the outcome of the best races.

This means that if you have a shrewd eye for the results it’s possible to jump the queues, get in early and secure a better price about your runner of choice. There are a number of strategies adopted by backers when trying to land a pay-out from bookmakers.

Some stay loyal to a particular trainer or jockey that has brought them luck in the past, others follow the form and know how a runner has been performing in recent outings. Many prefer to leave it to the professionals, placing their trust in tipsters such as the team at Oddschecker who advised backing Killarney-winner Air Supremacy recently.

For others, a bet on the outcome following the trends is a smart move, keeping an eye on winning age, trainer, or jockey patterns. There’s certainly more work involved in this tactic, but the rewards are sweeter knowing you have worked for and earned your profit.

Below, you’ll find a selection of some of Hong Kong’s biggest races and what the trends say that you should keep in mind when selecting your horse.

Hong Kong Cup

It pays to keep on the right side of star jockey Frankie Dettori in recent renewals and he remains the race’s most successful rider on three wins. The first of those came in 2000 with Fantastic Light for Saeed bin Suroor, before he added Falbrav three years later. His last victory in the Hong Kong Cup came on Ramonti 11 years ago.

Godolphin carries the most wins from an owner on two and your best trainer at this level is Anthony S Cruz who had the king, California Memory, in 2011 and 2012, and Time Warp in 2017. The stats show it isn’t wise to go for two-in-a-row, with only one horse successfully defending the cup.

Hong Kong Mile

Good Ba Ba has dominated this race and remains the hot runner of the history books with three wins, scoring in 2007, 2008 and 2009. That helped Olivier Doleuze to the top jockey prize, on board for two of those three and adding another of his own in 2006. The trends also make it clear you should back a five-year-old with each of the last two, and three of the last four, champions being five at the time of winning.

If it’s a trainer you’re after, then look no further than John Moore who landed 2017 champion Beauty Generation, taking his tally to three in the process – 2011, 2014 and last year. The treble drew him level with Tony Cruz who came out on top in 2003, 2010 and 2016.
