How to hook up Turnigy ESC and HXT motor?

Hi, I have a Turnigy Plush 25a ESC from Hobby City, and an HXT from Heads up RC. The motor has red, black, and yellow wires. The ESC has three red wires, labeled A, B, and C from left to right if the ESC is held label-up with the motor wires facing away from you.

The instructions only show the ESC with those three wires connecting to the motor, but there is no indication of which of the ESC wires connect to which of the motor wires. They all come out from the motor through a hole in the housing so there's no way to line up the 3 ESC leads with the 3 motor leads.

Is there some principle people use for this?

Thnaks,
Jim

hook them up in any order. if the motor spins backwards, reverse any two wires. there is no polarity in a brushless motor. the wires and colors are meaningless.
