Dylan Mo heads into Wednesday’s eight-race card at Happy Valley only one win away from his 70th career success and the 25 year old is upbeat about his chances of notching that apprenticeship-ending victory.
“I have a couple of good chances; all of them are in very good form,” Mo said.
Mo has six rides on the night, including last start-winner Circuit Glory in the feature, the Class 1 Happy Valley Vase (1800m).
The Tony Cruz-trained New Zealand-bred galloper led all the way last start and Mo is expecting him to hold his form on Wednesday night.
“This race is a very small field (8 runners), so I will try my best to stay calm and ride the horse so that I can give him every chance to win”
The apprentice has tallied 20 wins so far this season, a testament to his hard work and determination.
After joining the Hong Kong Jockey Club’s Apprentice Jockeys’ School, Mo was sent on an overseas placement in 2013, first to South Africa and then, in 2014, to New Zealand where he was apprenticed to Allan Sharrock. -HKJC
