Chairman's Sprint Prize Betting Tips

The Group One Chairman's Sprint Prize is the premier sprinting event on the Champions Day program from Sha Tin on Sunday. It has been a Group One race since 2016 and the fourth leg of the Global Sprint Challenge.

Local Hong Kong horses have a great record with Chautauqua being the last international raider to win this sprint in 2016. Aethero and Hot King Prawn are the joint favourites to win the Chairman's Sprint Prize in 2020.

Chairman's Sprint Prize Best Bet - Aether

Aethero has proven to be an enigma lately, but this speedy gelding can be forgiven for a finishing along way behind Voyage Warrior in the Group Two Sprint Cup on April 5. He was crowded at the start and lost ground and had run his race by the time the sprint was on.
The recent trial on April 17 when clearing away to win by 6 lengths suggests Aethero is back to his best. He has the most talent in this field and is our best bet in the 2020 Chairman's Sprint Prize.

Chairman's Sprint Prize Value Bet - Big Party

Big Party finished 2.1 lenghts behind Voyage Warrior in the Group Two Sprint Cup on April 5 where recovered quickly after a moderate start. This Frankie Lor-trained son of Exceed And Excel has won five of his 11 starts.
He has been rapidly moving through the grades and needs to improve again to be in the mix at this level. We think Big Party can continue to step up and after being lightly-raced, there is considerable upside and value in the 2020 Chairman's Sprint Prize.
