Zac Purton needs no introduction when it comes to Hong Kong racing and with the title challenge between him and Joao Moreira really hotting up he needs every win he can get.
He has a fair amount of strong rides on the card, like every week but we have picked out three of his rides that look to be the strongest on paper.
In the first race of the day he sits on the six year old Good Days I who has been without a win since June 2019 but recently has been knocking on the door at Sha Tin and can use that form to go well here.
Two starts ago he finished a decent second at Sha Tin over 1 mile 2f and when dropped slightly in trip he finished in the same position.
He is now stepping up in trip and it should bring even more improvement out of him.
In the seventh event of the day he jumps on board Diamond Brilliant who had previously been ridden by Joao Moreira.
The gelding has been knocking on door on his last three runs with narrow place finishes, just not being able to get his neck in front.
with two seconds and a third in his last three runs the five year old has only gone up three pounds which still gives him a live chance in the weights and he has a favourable draw.
His final big chance of the day in our eyes comes in the final event of the afternoon with Shouson who has won three of his last six starts and although going up 25 pounds in the process he should still make his presence felt.
The gelding knows how to win around this tricky track and not having the worst draw in the world should make him hard to back against.
