Text of Audemars Piguet QE II Cup Form Guide - The Hong .- 1 - Welcome to the 2012 Audemars Piguet QE II

  • - 1 -

    Welcome to the 2012 Audemars Piguet QE II Cup to be held on Sunday 29th April. This year, the local contingents will face strong challenges from four overseas contenders, namely

    Irish Derby hero Treasure Beach, high-class Japanese challenger Rulership, the redoubtable South African raider Viscount Nelson and the returning French contender, Chinchon.

    In the FORM GUIDE, the PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS table provides you with a bird-eye's

    view of the race. This at-a-glance guide gives you a full form summary of the horses in a simple and concise table.

    Another handy tool is the INTERNATIONAL RATINGS CHART. In weight-for-age races like

    the Audemars Piguet QE II Cup, generally speaking, the higher a horse's rating, which is based on racing performance, the better its chance to win.

    A preliminary SPEED CHART has been included to assist in identifying likely positions in

    running. Please note that this is preliminary only and the full Speed Map will be available after barrier draw in the SpeedPOWER Form Guide on www.hkjc.com/english/formguide/formguide.asp.

    If you need further information and analysis, just flip over to the next section where you will find

    the COMPREHENSIVE PAST PERFORMANCE of the horses. Also included is the FORM ANALYSIS, which highlights the notable achievements and racing characteristics of each horse. Another feature is the RATINGS HISTORY CHART. This chart indicates the quality and consistency of a horse's previous 10 starts through a graphical illustration of the ratings achieved in these races.

    This information is correct as of 16th April 2012.

    There is no genuine leader and the barrier draw is likely to determine

    which horses elect to go forward and take up the running. Rulership

    regularly races handy and most likely will lead at a slow tempo, and

    horses such as Treasure Beach, Zaidan, Fay Fay and Pure Champion

    will be close up. Sweet Orange suffered because of the slow tempo in the

    Derby and connections may decide to have him closer to avoid similar

    problems, particularly if drawn well.
