The Hong Kong Vase is run over 2400m at Sha Tin and is the first of four Group 1's run on the Hong Kong International Race Day.

A small field has been assembled for the 2021 edition and Glory Vase heads the betting narrowly from Pyledriver.

Hong Kong Vase Tips 2021

Best Bet - Pyledriver

This four-year-old is a six-time winner from 13 starts, which includes the Group 1 Coronation Cup at Epsom Downs in June this year, when getting off the canvas late to deny Al Aasy.

Pyledriver arrives to the Hong Kong Vase in winning form, sitting on the speed to take out the Listed Churchill Stakes on November 11, a brave win, as he was spotting weight to the entire field.

Trainer William Muir didn't have the entire peaking there, with this target in mind and from barrier one where he should at least box-seat, the son of Harbour Watch should again give a big sight.

Value Bet - Mogul

Aidan O'Brien and Ryan Moore team up with last year's Hong Kong Vase winner, Mogul, who hasn't saluted in four subsequent attempts, albeit he hasn't exactly gone backwards.

The son of Galileo won the 2020 edition as a three-year-old, arriving off a three length Breeders' Cup defeat and was beaten under four lengths in the Group 3 Prix de Reux this time, so is on the fresh side.

That last event was messy, where he did suffer some inconvenience before picking up late and sustaining a long run when belting Exultant 12 months ago, he's once again in a small field.
