Trainer Tony Cruz says that Class 2 Wah Fu Handicap (1650m) winner Circuit Glory is capable of finding the form that saw him win the Gr.2 Championship Stakes (2100m) in New Zealand.
Though Cruz admits that the five-year-old son of Tavistock, who raced as Tavidream when trained by Donna Logan and Chris Gibbs, does need to work on his attitude in order to reach those heights following his win at Happy Valley on Wednesday night.
"He’s always been an impressive horse, he won five of seven in New Zealand, and I think that if he can just be a bit better with his manners, he can win a few races this season," Cruz said.
“Derek (Leung) rode an ideal race and he won with a bit of authority there.”
The night’s feature, the Class 3 Community Chest Cup Handicap (1000m), was taken out by another New Zealand bred galloper, the Ricky Yiu-trained Keep Moving.
“He’s a horse with plenty of talent, but he’s had a few issues,” Yiu said.
“Not many horses can win five from 10 in Hong Kong though. The Happy Valley 1000m is perfect for him with tempo and pace, so I will look for another one now he will be in Class 2." -HKJC
