CHAMPIONS MILE TRACKWORK

Trackwork video 03/05/2017


RAPPER DRAGON – HK

Cantered one lap of the main all-weather track.
Big-race jockey Joao Moreira said: “He’s never eye-catching in his barrier trials. The trial the other day was just OK but the horse himself feels fine, he feels well, he was striding out freely, so I have no concerns. I was happy with that trial. He’s the best horse in Hong Kong. I do respect the others, we will face some really good horses, like Beauty Only, who was second to him last time – if he was able to finish that close last time it means he can give us another fight. But I’m very confident about my horse – I think he’s very good and I think there’s even more to come from him.”

STORMY ANTARCTIC – GB

Completed an easy 1200m gallop on the Sha Tin all-weather track under assistant trainer Jack Steels in 1m 27.0s (31.1, 30.4, 25.5).
Travelling groom Deepak Gaikwad said: “He did a little more this morning and we’re happy with him. Ed (Walker) arrives tonight.”

CONVEY – GB

Took to the Sha Tin all-weather track for an easy 400m gallop under groom Kevin Bradshaw, clocking 33.2s.
Bradshaw said: “He’s pretty chilled and taking it all in his stride.”
