Hostwin Saturn rated the highest in this race, followed by Oneofthegreats from G. Allendorf’s yard. Oneofthegreats has not trail in 1800M before, the distance is a query and also the punishable barrier 12 have not been in his favour, he may be sneak into the mix at best. Winnie Star with his blue blood pedigree as well as his good racing credentials should be in the reckoning but drawn in barrier 14, he got lots to do before he can pull into a good firing position down in the straight. Hostwin Saturn has won a convincing 1800M race his stamina is well proven, with a favourable draw in barrier 2 and a strong jockey J.B Hamel, he’s my idea of the SJM Derby winner. You can ignore his last messy 1500M race where he ran 3rd behind Star of Yiu Cheung and Oneofthegreats in just 1/2 length finish. These 3 will met in the SJM Derby race again on Sunday, it will not be easy for Star of Yiu Cheung and Oneofthegreats to turn the table this time. As long as the pace is normal, it should be a race breaks well for Hostwin Saturn. Crown of Gold could be a threat should he get a clear run down the straight, he got 4 wins under his belt, he beat Fantastic Friends and Golden Victory with ease in a 1800M race this season, he drawn barrier 3 and with leading jockey L. Corrales aboard, he posted to be a danger to Hostwin Saturn. But with so many upsides Hostwin Saturn should relish his derby glory.
