2020 Hong Kong Mile Betting

This Hong Kong Mile race appears on the Hong Kong International Races racecard, with this race having been in operation since 1991 and it was landed by a horse called Beauty Generation in 2017 and 2018, while 2019 brought success for Admire Mars.

Can Admire Mars Win Back-to-Back Hong Kong Mile Races?

You have to respect Admire Mars’ chances in this massive one mile encounter considering that he produced a world-class performance to win for trainer Yasuo Tomomichi and it was the first success for a three-year-old in this race since Lucky Owners triumphed in 2003, with the horse potentially improved for the run this time around.

Since narrowly beating Waikuku a year ago, it has hardly been the ideal preparation for the Junko Kondo-owned horse, although there have been recent runs in Japan, namely at the Kyoto and Hanshin racecourses where the horse has got some miles into his legs.

Golden Sixty Looks Dangerous Favourite for Hong Kong Mile

Golden Sixty has been all the rage when it comes to the Hong Kong Mile and the most recent success was on 22 November when landing a victory in the recent Jockey Club Mile, with this being a Group 2 encounter which could be a big marker for this race.

It has now been ten consecutive wins for the KW Lui-trained charge, with the five-year-old making Sha Tin is native home thanks to so many victories and you can see why the bookies are reluctant to take on a horse that could be seriously dangerous in this race.

It’s possible that this isn’t just a two-horse race, with Waikuku having finished a very close second to Admire Mars in the most recent renewal and Beauty Generation is the other potential contender, with the veteran returning to the track and hoping to make it a hat-trick of victories in this race.
