One Trainer, Jockey and Horse To Follow On Sunday

Horse To Follow - Lumen Baba

The six furlong Brandy Snap Class 3 Handicap sees some ex Irish and British runners take to the Sha Tin stage with their new yards and the one that takes the eye is Lumen Baba.

Formerly named Pablo Diablo when racing in Ireland for Ger Lyons, he has now been acquired by trainer Douglas Whyte and makes debut in this contest.

The three year old gelding has only raced during his career and got off to the best start possible when landing a 19 runner maiden at the Curragh.

He went on to beat the Aidan O'Brien trained Louisiana, who went on to frank that form when winning next time out at Thurles impressively.

Lumen Baba could turn out to be anything in Hong Kong.

Trainer To Follow - Douglas Whyte

Australian trainer Douglas Whyte looks to have some stand out chances on Sunday and having had three winners from his last 11 rides he is running at a strike rate of 27.28%.

At Sha Tin he also does not have a bad record landing a double there last weekend and with the runners and jockey booking on those horses he could be set for another big day.

The stand out horses on Sunday for Whyte look to be Lumen Baba in the 7:30 contest and Smiling Face in the opener.

Jockey To Follow - Joao Moreira

Although it looks an obvious selection to pick the leading rider in Hong Kong to follow in Sunday's event, his record at the track and this season alone is hard to look past.

The Brazilian has been firing on all cylinders in the last 14 days having won 8 of his 29 contests and running at a competitive strike rate of 27.59%.

At Sha Tin the rider has an increasingly strong record running at an all time 23.42% strike rate and in that time has picked up $2,137,257 in prize money.

He has some very special rides across the card and heads into the events off the back of a double at Happy Valley on Wednesday.
