Sunny's up and the sky is blue

This week's HK Classic Mile will give some real shape to the 2023 Derby picture as the top 4yos clash over 1600m, but trainer Chris So has Super Sunny Sing on an alternative route to the grand final.
Instead of rolling the dice on a start in the Classic Mile, So kept Super Sunny Sing's first test at the same distance to a Class 3 on Tuesday and the gelding was the talk of the Chinese New Year meeting with his easy win.
Super Sunny Sing's three successive wins seem to have caught his trainer unawares to some extent but So is now looking at the Classic Cup over 1800m with the horse he says "just keeps improving."
On the same program, Majestic Colour put behind his second-up disappointment with a similarly-impressive impressive 1400m victory in Class 3 but his trainer Frankie Lor wants to see more before he looks towards the Derby.
On our ratings, the win was in the right ball park to be a fringe contender but Lor plans to keep the gelding to handicaps to better assess him.
