Jimmy Choux

Jimmy Choux in final track work before the Hong Kong Cup

While Australia’s may be hoping Jimmy Choux($5) wins today’s Hong Kong Mile at Sha Tin for Australasia, truth is there no Aussie in the Kiwi –  horse, jockey, trainer or owners.

Trainers John Size (Flying Blue ($21)  and Sichuan Success ($8.50),  John Moore (Xensions ($4.50) , Able One ($12) and Destined For Glory) ($11) and jockeys Tim Clark (aboard Destined For Glory), Darren Beadman (Xtension) and Brett Prebble (Outdoor Pegasus ($151) are all Australians trying to win the mile.

Cheering for Jimmy Choux is like cheering for cricketer Jessie Ryder making a century or Chris Martin one run.

Xtension ($4.50) and Jimmy Choux ($5) are at the top of the betting – it signifies the race is open with many chances.

John Size has been in Hong Kong since 2001 and has won six trainers’ premiership in that time.

Flying Blue is a $21 chance while Sichuan Success is expected to be hard to beat at $8.50.

“Flying Blue has a tremendously consistent record in he has been prepared for this race,” Size said.

”He showed improved form – I expect him to make further improvement.

“Sichuan Success is in good order.

“He missed the last mile race but I’m not concerned.

“He’s a good horse.

“I’ve been able to freshen him up and he trialled very nicely last Friday but drawing 13 wasn’t part of the plan.”

Beadman, the main rider for Moore, says to look for Xtensions at the serious end of the race.

”He’s gone from being a teenager to a young man this preparation,” Beadman said.

”He’s thickened up well and matured.

“He doesn’t have the tactical speed to be right there early but he’ll be comfortable midfield and can finish off.”

Jimmy Choux travelled badly to Hong Kong and didn’t eat in the initial stages but has bounced back.

Trainer John Bary has been very pleased with his trackwork and the barrier draw.

“Don’t worry about us, all good,” Bary said.

“I think he’s started to settle in a whole lot better.

“His coat’s great and he’s feeling good.”

The value runner may be the Japanese horse Apapane at $16.

Horses from that country invariably perform well in Hong Kong.

Eishin Preston won the Mile in 2011 and Hat-Trick in 2005 for Japan.

Trainer Sakae Kunieda is happy with Apapane

“She is in really good form,” he said

“I will let the rider ride her as he thinks it fits.

“She eats up very well.

“Her weight was 497 kg yesterday, which was less than when she arrived here, but it is a good sign physically.

“She worked on turf for the first time here and I think she fits the surface.

“I think I will go into the race with a lot of confidence.”

    Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m
    looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good

  2. Carlos Eduardo Veiga

    Tremendous issues here. I am very satisfied to see your article.
    Thanks so much and I’m having a look ahead to contact you.
    Will you please drop me a mail?

  3. Dadado Veig

    Pretty! This has been a really wonderful post. Thank you for supplying these details.

  4. Sherry

    Its such as you read my thoughts! You seem to understand a lot approximately this, like you wrote the e-book in it or something.

    I believe that you could do with a few % to drive the message house a little bit,
    but other than that, this is fantastic blog.
    A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

  5. timex observe

    It’s going to be finish of mine day, but before finish I am reading this
    fantastic paragraph to improve my know-how.

  6. pay monthly phone

    Magnificent site. Plenty of helpful info here. I am sending it to some buddies ans also sharing
    in delicious. And obviously, thank you in your sweat!

  7. Elvera

    Asking questions are actually pleasant thing
    if you are not understanding anything fully, however
    this article offers good understanding even.

  8. Luiz Gastão Bittencourt da Silva

    Hi there! This blog post couldn’t be written any better!

    Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept preaching about this. I’ll forward this post to him.

    Fairly certain he’ll have a very good read. I appreciate you for sharing!

  9. Itamar Serpa Fernandes

    Thank you for some other informative site. The place else may I get that kind
    of information written in such an ideal method?
    I have a mission that I am just now operating on, and
    I have been on the look out for such information.

  10. find home

    It is truly a great and helpful piece of information. I’m happy that you shared
    this helpful info with us. Please keep us up to date like this.
    Thanks for sharing.

  11. using home security cameras

    I think what you said made a great deal of sense. But, think on this, what if you composed a
    catchier title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog,
    however suppose you added something that makes people desire more?
    I mean Aussies cheering for Jimmy Choux – come on! – HorseRacing.com.au is kinda boring.
    You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create
    news headlines to get people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might bring your
    blog a little bit more interesting.

  12. Itamar Serp

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she maintains the thought of a user in his/her mind that how a user can be aware of it.
    Thus that’s why this article is great. Thanks!

  17. Egli Diana Pinto

    Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any suggestions?

  18. Itamar Serp

    I do not even understand how I ended up here, but I believed this put up
    used to be good. I don’t realize who you might be but certainly you are
    going to a famous blogger should you aren’t already.


  19. Lelio Vieira Carneiro Junior

  20. Lelio Vieira Carneiro

    This paragraph will assist the internet people for building up
    new web site or even a blog from start to end.

  21. Luiz Gastão Bittencourt

    First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do
    not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?

  22. Egli Diana Pinto

    Hi! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after going
    through some of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Anyways,
    I’m definitely happy I came across it and I’ll be bookmarking it and
    checking back often!
