HK Derby Power Rankings™️

Hong Kong Derby Power Rankings™️ November 8

Our panel of experts rank the 2020 Hong Kong Derby contenders from one through 14.


We ask a panel of ten experts to rank the top 14 contenders for the 2020 Hong Kong Derby in a pre-post market order. The average ranking forms our regularly updated lists. As horses trial and ultimately race, the list will change as horses build towards the big race in March. 

More Than This tops the first round of the 2020 Hong Kong Derby Power Rankings™️  after his tough win last Sunday at Sha Tin.

Trainer Francis Lui plans to start  the 90-rated galloper next on International Day (December 8) in what is always a high quality 1,600m Class 2.

Champion’s Way was actually ranked first by more experts than More Than This but distance queries from some experts dragged his average ranking down and the highest-rated four-year-old at 108 came in at number two.

John Size has chosen Saturday’s Panasonic Cup over 1,400m for his horse to resume, the same race the trainer’s 2014 Hong Kong Derby champion Luger started his four-year-old campaign in.
