The Group Three Celebration Cup has been the scene of some upset results and Tony Millard-trained Super Lifeline has a chance to spring one more against the big names at Sha Tin this afternoon, reports Racing Post HK.

The race formerly known as the National Day Cup has had a relatively brief history but still turned out winners at odds of 45-1, 31-1, 70-1, 32-1 and 20-1, as well a number of other double figure results, so it isn't a walk-up start for the star gallopers under the handicap conditions.

The Group One performers are having their first race for more than four months and give out a lot of weight to the lesser lights, which makes those horses particularly dangerous if they have also had a race this season.

Super Lifeline (Alex Lai Hoi-wing) was quite plain first-up when sixth behind Kabayan in a Class One two weeks ago, but that race should have brought him on in fitness and the five-year-old has weight lines through other fancied runners that give him a knockout chance.

First amongst his credentials is having won six of 10 runs over the 1,400m at Sha Tin, making him a specialist at the distance, but there are more convincing arguments looking at the weights and measures.
