Terry Wong Chi-wai helped bring about a nice piece of symmetry as he rode his 100th winner on a 100-1 shot, Bespoke Master rattling home in a Class Four. The Dennis Yip Chor-hong-trained five-year-old became the fifth horse to score at triple-figure odds this season, joining Caspar Fownes' duo, Victory Mascot and Windicator Power, and Ricky Yiu Poon-fai's Polymer Win and the David Hall-trained Gold Tartini. Bespoke Master's trainer seemed as puzzled as punters after the victory. 'Maybe it was the rain, maybe it was the pace, or maybe those other horses are no good,' Yip said. 'My horse has a chicken heart and his mouth is very sensitive. If the pace is slow for him he can't finish off.'
