French star Moonlight Cloud backed for Hong Kong Mile success

Moonlight Cloud is the 5-4 (from 6-4) favourite with Coral for Sunday’s Longines Hong Kong Mile, after support for the French star today. By contrast, the Richard Hannon-trained Sky Lantern is friendless with punters, and is eased to 7-1 (from 5-1).

“Moonlight Cloud is clearly the one to beat at Sha Tin following her Group One hat-trick on home soil earlier in the year, and punters are siding with her rather than Sky Lantern, who has been easy to back since connections confirmed their filly had been a bit quiet on arrival in the Far East,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
