There are four Hong Kong International Races and this includes the Hong Kong Vase, with this event having been inaugurated in 1994 and it’s a fairly long-distance race set over 1.5 miles which means that the top class horses with the best stamina are always bang in contention to perform well at Sha Tin Racecourse.

2020 Hong Kong Vase Betting Tips

The Hong Kong Vase was won by the aptly-named Glory Vase last year, although the previous winner was Exultant and it appears as though this horse could return to the winners’ enclosure, with Highland Reel having landed a triumph in 2015 and 2017.

Exultant Massive Favourite to Win Hong Kong Vase

A S Cruz trained Exultant to an excellent victory in this race two years ago and the six-year-old has been a warm order with punters leading up to the Hong Kong International Race, with the Hong Kong Vase racecard boasting the horse as the betting favourite.

Exultant has landed second spot in his past two races behind Furore, although his stablemate will be running in the Hong Kong Cup and so this paves the way for Cruz to try and land the spoils in this race again, with the runner proving himself to be in good nick with those runner-up positions.

Zac Purton will be on board the horse to try and deliver the goods although there are other quality horses in the field and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

Mogul and Columbus County Could Be Big Dangers

Mogul is not a horse that can be easily ignored in any race, with the three-year-old having already impressed during his fledgling career, with the horse running into fifth during the recent Breeders’ Cup Turf race and there was previously a victory in the Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris.

Aidan O’Brien will have Magical lining up in another big Hong Kong International race and the Irish handler has full confidence that Mogul can adjust to the Sha Tin race track, although Columbus County is another viable winner of this race.

The five-year-old has had a couple of recent appearances, with a victory at Happy Valley and the horse was behind Furore and Exultant in the Jockey Club Cup and will hope to frank the form with the latter this time around.
