It’s Derby weekend! The big race is at Seoul on Sunday afternoon and we’ll have plenty of build up over the next couple of days. Before that, however, there is the regular Friday card at Busan to negotiate and it features 10 races from 11:30 to 18:00. English race cards can be found here while notes on races to be simulcast overseas are below:
Race 4: Class 6 (1300M) Allowance / KRW 22 Million
1. JIBONG YEONGUNG – Decent 4th over 1200M in March but well back behind Sharp Bell last start.
2. CHOEGANG BOLT – Last of nine on debut in February and sent back to trial. Nothing special in the trial but the yard is to be respected so improvement today is possible.
3. SHARP BELL – Much improved 4th latest over a muddy track on April 7th. Could look to match or better that here.
4. JUNE MORNING –2nd at 1200M a month ago on just her second start, running on nicely. Strong chance here.
5. MADOBIYEON – Offered little in six starts so far although his most recent, a 5th of 11 on first try at this distance, was his best to date.
6. CHEONGCHUN DAERO – 4th in a slow race in January but last of 11 on only subsequent outing three weeks ago. (more…)
