The Gary Moore trained Takedown appears Australia’s best chance of claiming the Hong Kong Sprint.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has Takedown at $8.50, with the other Aussie runner, Rebel Dane, $16 for Sunday’s Group 1.
Local sprinter Lucky Bubbles heads betting on $3.50, ahead of Japanese pair Big Arthur ($4.60) and Red Falx ($8.00).
The Hong Kong based defending champion Peniaphobia is $15.
“Takedown cracked his first Group 1 in the Winterbottom Stakes last start and couldn’t be in better shape. We would love to see either of the Aussie horses win, but Gary Moore’s celebrations always add to the occasion,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
