This will be one of the best Hong Kong Sprint fields ever assembled with the likes of Hot King Prawn, Mr Stunning and D B Pin set to excite the packed crowd at Sha Tin.

Hot King Prawn has been a revelation and has been tipped as the best sprinter in the country. He could frank those credentials with a win in December but the field is packed with international talent, which includes two-time winner Mr Stunning.

2018 Hong Kong Sprint result


All of the money came for Hot King Prawn but the star HK sprinter was left floundering in the straight as Mr Stunning proved too good for them once again.

With a good trip in transit, Mr Stunning was able to hit the lead with power in the straight and pull away from the likes of D B Pin and Beat The Clock to score his second consecutive Hong Kong Sprint title.

Hot King Prawn finished well down the track in a disappointing effort and jockey Joao Moreira offered no explanation for his poor performance.
