9/12 - Hong Kong Vase

One is tired and emotional and just can't watch anymore of the build up to the Hatton preys he comes out with his health in tact.

Back to god's own sport.....Tomorrow in a galaxy far far away at Sha Tinn racecourse in Hong Kong on of the best flat meetings of the year takes place....The Hong Kong Vase. I 1st watched this when *wipes tear from eye* Ouija Board broke the sound barrier to sprint home to take the vase.

This year 4 big races take my eye on Sunday morning.

06.00 (uk time) - Miss Antretti is the one to beat, superb at Ascot this season and a true champion sprinter. Top Aussie horse that's been globe trotting this year....ground and climate should suit.

06.40 - Dylan Thomas, well his last race looks a tough one. This horse is a after win after win. Can't see him losing to be honest and it's the last chance I'll get to stick it to the bookies before he goes off to stud and a well earned rest.

07.50 - Darjina - superb French filly....winner at the Arc festival in October...only doubt would be the jockey who I hate (Christoph Soumillon), who is a known to bottle it in the biggies

08.30 - Ramonti....Mere words of mine cannot describe how much I love this horse. Won for me 3 times this year. I cheered him home at Royal Ascot as did everyone I was with on the day, he battled at Goodwood and then again at Ascot in September...Frankie in the saddle, if he leads from the front and dictates the race then it's his. Such a high cruising speed has left his rivals with two much to do in the latter stages. Up in trip but he needs that now...C'mon RAMONTI

So it's -

06.00 - Miss Antretti €25 win @ 3.25

06.40 - Dylan Thomas €50 win @ 2.6

07.50 - Darjina €25 win @ 5.8

08.30 - Ramonti €100 win @ 3.8
